18 years an illegale! And she couldn’t figure out what to do to make it right?
“...had no drivers license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet.”
She is an unlicensed and uninsured motorist, so she is a high risk to all other drivers. Another 18 year pair of laws broken.
But she DOES have her talisman...does that fix all the law-breaking?
OK, NYT, kindly explain how many laws you must break and for how long before you are a CRIMINAL? Is showing up at a MAGA rally enough to make you a criminal?
.....’Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no drivers license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet.’..........
FYI: Driving without a license is ILLEGAL.
If you do not have a license, you can not buy car insurance. Driving without car insurance is also illegal.
If she was to get into an accident, the person she hit would be out of pocket for any expanses including no chance for restitution in the event of injury or death. Often times Citizens and LEGAL residents are sued in our courts by illegals and their unscrupulous lawyers even when they are at fault in accidents simply because insurance companies will settle suits and give these illegal criminals a payday on our dime.
This one sentence shows at least two serious civil crimes that would cost citizens dearly.
Illegal immigrants are thieves. They steal from us at every turn. When they have their children in our hospitals and use them to get welfare benefits,they are stealing our healthcare and tax dollars. When they work under the table or for lower wages than a citizen can work for. They are stealing. When they drive on the roads paid for by our tax dollars they are stealing.
No, I think Mexico needs at least a $150.00 an hour minimum wage. Then we could manufacture products to export to all those rich Mexicans. At least that must be the way it works or why would people keep insisting on raising the minimum wage.
Illegal aliens should leave, now, today.
You have been ripping us off, ignoring ALL of our laws long enough.
If you had wanted to be an American you would have applied to be one, waited your turn, paid your fees, learned the language and become an immigrant by complying with the laws.
This country does not need illegal immigrants.
We have a vast supply of unemployed low skilled people who can be tapped for the type of work that these Illegals provide.
Simply eliminate long term welfare benefits to citizens who have no physical or mental defects and we would quickly fill these positions and often at wages higher than the non tax paying illegals receive. Many of these illegals avail themselves of our generous welfare benefits themselves.
Illegal workers depress the wages of our lowest skilled workers.
The reason why so few MSM Liberals, Wall Streeters and Hollywood Elitists are pro illegal immigration is the fact that it is highly unlikely that a group of Illegals are going to take over media, hedge funds and Hollywood blockbusters. However, roofing contractors, cement contractors, dry wall hangers service personnel in restaurant kitchens and domestic service workers are easily replaced by low wage illegals who provide an endless supply of virtual slave labor for the elites.
Eliminate the endless supply of cheap slave labor and lower income citizens’ wages will improve dramatically and welfare and food stamp rolls and expenses will drop precipitously.
A job is the best form of welfare reform. Eliminate the illegals and wages will rise to the point that even chronic welfare recipients will be motivated to get a job.
Good . you came here illegally. Hopefully you saved enough money to start over in Mexico. Now your son can get to know his Mexican relatives til he turns 18 and comes back here as an adult.
Unless you are a Democrat searching for votes or the Media supporting the Democrats!
Or a Republican importing cheap labor.
Cut off all freebies, jail, then deport all illegals
Should have stopped right there.
But as long as the corporation gets its cheap labor, they dont mind how many criminals are allowed to exploit welfare. Its not the corporation paying the bills, its the tax payer.
It’s been Republican Senators and Congressmen importing the cheap labor for their corporate donors.
Once here as an illegal alien, there is only one way to get right, return home and apply to do it right.
They don’t want to do it right.
They want us to give them amnesty and so do too many Republican Senators.
Rubio, Hatch, Heller, Hoeven, Graham, Alexander, Corker, Murkowsky, Flake, McCain
As the article says, she has a “talisman.” I’m guessing TSA accepts those if you are illegal.
This woman has lived here for 18 years illegally. Her choice. She has no license, no insurance and probably planned to slip back to Mexico if she hits somebody with her car. GTHO!
Thanks for posting the’fee good’ story of the day. The family is still united and one less illegal in the states. Winning !!
Another Illegal Alien leaving. I don’t see the downside.
Good. Get out. Goodbye. And don't come back.
‘undocumented’ is just journalist talk. She probably has IDs which are accepted by TSA. She may well have a Mexican passport as well as a voter id card from her state with her picture and thumb print on it.
