One of the most tragic and heartbreaking stories in recent memory has just been covered by the Gateway Pundit, and regrettably, it was caused once again by an illegal alien. Those who do not wish to see our border laws enforced and who do their very best to shelter and hide undocumented aliens have indirectly led to the shooting of a small child in Texas, there is NO other way to put it.
Rolando Martinez claims that he was simply drunk when he “shot at drivers with an assault rifle on an 18 mile stretch of Interstate 35.” His intoxication resulted in a seven-year-old girl getting shot in the head and struggling in critical condition at a nearby hospital.
KXAN News confirms that Martinez” was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon” which they remind us is a “second-degree felony” for the senseless spree. Should the girl die, he will surely be charged with murder.
Four other people were also hit by the bullets which the gunman sprayed while on his binge. Liberals will be quick to say that gun laws could have prevented this, but considering that it is already illegal to carry a gun while drunk, that is simply not the case.
It is known that the firing of the weapon “began about 2 a.m. Saturday and ended around 3:15 a.m.”
Austin Police Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon admitted on Saturday that “We have a lot of crime scenes. We have several people that were injured in this.”
The gunman was arrested for “municipal traffic warrants Saturday” and during the course of talking to the man, he confessed that he had been “drinking at the Nocturno Nightclub and didn’t remember much from that night.” He did say that he recalled “waking up in a grassy median near the freeway,” according to police affidavits.
He is being held on a staggering one million dollar bond and “he has an Immigration and Naturalization Service detainer on him,” as well. It remains to be seen if a Democrat will show up, claim that his rights are being violated, and beg for him to be allowed to stay in the U.S.
If it is true that this was just a drunkard acting foolishly, if he does really have a soul, then this will be a something that he has to live with for the rest of his life. This misery shall only be amplified if any of victims die, are paralyzed, crippled, or otherwise forever infirmed due to his actions.
Regardless, he should never have been in the country and if we had laws that actually were obeyed, he would have been shown the door.
For that matter, if our laws really worked, he would never have gotten in to start with.
