Illegal Aliens - A True Story
Today, an interesting thing happened in this smallish midwestern city. One of our company vehicles was backed into by another vehicle. It just so happened the driver of the other vehicle was in the United States illegally. To complicate matters he had an Ohio license plate not registered to the vehicle brought up from Mexico. The gentleman driving our company vehicle politely asked the police officer investigating the accident what he was going to do since the other guy didn't have insurance or a drivers license. The officer responded that he couldn't do anything because they were in a parking lot.
One attorney I mentioned this incident to replied, "It is still property damage." I said that was exactly what I told the driver of our car. Never mind that the chump was in our country illegally and still is for that matter and still driving the illegally registered car. Someone has to pay for the damage he caused and it isn't going to be the guy driving illegally because he is an illegal alien.
For some strange reason nobody wants to deal with the paperwork required (or whatever else) to handle these matters when it comes to illegal aliens. I've heard about such stories and now I have first hand knowledge of one. Imagine if you will that you were driving the offending vehicle, illegally plated and uninsured. Would your car be towed to the impound? Would you be locked up? Wake up America!!!
Just an observation.
