Oh, I can certainly tell you EXACTLY where the media is on this story. The description is not fit for public consumption, but I can tell you where they are.
A clever and competent reader sent us this heartbreaking story of an Ohio family killed in a car crash when another driver failed to stop at a stop sign. The family – Robin and Barbara Shellhammer and their adult daughter Whitney Meinke – were all pronounced dead at the scene –
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Alejandro Ramirez-Jaramillo, 26, was headed northbound on Cousino Road in a Ford Econoline van around 1 a.m. when he ran through a stop sign and struck a white Lexus driven by Robin Shellhammer, age 60, who was driving eastbound on Seaman Road.
Both vehicles went off the road and into a field.
Shellhammer and his passengers, wife Barbara Shellhammer, 60, and Whitney Meinke, 33, were pronounced dead at the scene. Meinke was the daughter of the Shellhammers.
If that isn’t heartbreaking enough, check out what happened when the driver, Alejandro Ramirez-Jaramillo, who ran the stop sign was questioned –
An agent from border patrol says Jaramillo is a Mexican citizen. When questioned, Jaramillo freely admitted that he was in the United State illegally.
Why am I imagining some smarmy Mexican dude leaning back against his chair with a smirk and saying “Yeah, I’m an illegal. What are you going to do about it?”
The article goes on to say that Jaramillo pleaded not guilty to three counts of negligent vehicular homicide and is being held on a $100,000 bond. And this sourcelink mentions that he is being held for border patrol (all I can say there is – Good).
Now if the media were honest (I know, I know – they’re not), this would have gotten all kinds of coverage beyond the local Ohio affiliates. I mean, situations like this are EXACTLY why President Trump is being so harsh on illegal immigration. They come in, mooch off our welfare system, call us racist for wanting stricter border enforcement as well as enforcement of the immigration laws already on the books. And if that wasn’t bad enough, illegal immigrants have assaulted and murdered American citizens. And then leftists like Nancy Pelosi have the GALL to cry about how mean we are to illegals?
Yeah – no. That’s not going to fly.
I feel like this is terrible for me to say – people have lost loved ones because of this illegal immigrant jackhole – but it’s probably a good thing this happened in a place like Ohio, and not California or Maryland or some other place with idiotic sanctuary policies. At least the police in Ohio are holding this guy for ICE and (hopefully) he’ll get deported. Whether or not he’ll stay deported… I can’t say for sure.
That’s the worst part of all this. Three people are dead because of this guy, and his punishment might not even last that long (there is precedence for such. Because of course there is.)
ICE has been allowed to do their jobs again, which is great. The border wall can’t be built fast enough. Whatever it takes to crack down on the illegal immigration problem – do it.
Meanwhile, the media and the Democrats (but I repeat myself) will continue to ignore this problem, because Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi told them to.
