Illegal Alien Kills Four Minnesota Students

Four students were recently killed in Minnesota, when the bus, they were riding in, was hit broadside. Witnesses stated, the driver of the SUV that struck the bus, was traveling at such a high rate of speed that it launched her vehicle into the air as it passed over the railroad tracts and through a stop sign. There was no chance for the bus driver to avoid the impact, that hit with such force, it overturned the bus. The driver of the SUV that struck the bus was discovered to be an illegal alien using false documents, that allowed her to obtain a drivers license.

The debate in this country about illegal aliens has become heated and has centered around the financial impact of their presence in this country and the humanitarian aspects of their plight and wether or not the term illegal is pejorative, unwarranted and indeed racist.

In the english language the word, illegal, is defined as: not according to or authorized by law. The word alien is defined as: a foreign-born resident who has not been naturalized and is still a subject or citizen of a foreign country. There is nothing racist or derogatory about the term. Its a neutral definition. We call them illegal aliens because they have entered this country without complying with our immigration laws. They then compound that illegal act by using false documents, another illegal act. And in this case chose to ignore our traffic laws which has proven to be fatal.

As foolish as it may seem, the stop sign this particular illegal alien violated definitively illustrates the foundation upon which this country is based. The rule of law. That's why we stop at a stop sign even when no one else is around. Illegal aliens who violate our laws do not understand this simple premise, and are a danger to themselves and others because they do not.

We are a nation based on the rule of law. In the simplest sense. A law is nothing more than a rule that we set for ourselves and agree that if it is applied to one of us, it must be applied to all of us. Its the fair thing to do. Anything less would lead to chaos in society. Its just common sense that you can't have one segment of society ignoring the rules we set for ourselves.

What is often lost in this debate is the the impact that those who choose to ignore the laws of our nation and their presence in this country has on ordinary American citizens. There are at least three American families that understand first hand the consequences of continuing to allow a substantial portion of population, in this country illegally, to ignore its laws.
