Illegal migrant Carlos Montano has killed Virginia Nun Sister Denise Mosier while driving drunk. Montana has two previous drunk driving charges.
According to ICE, Montana was “in the deportation process,” was out of custody on his own “recognizance.”
The crash at around 8:30 Sunday morning killed Sister Denise Mosierand injured two other nuns as they were driving to a retreat at the Benedictine Monastery in Bristow, Va. The two injured nuns were in critical but stable condition late Monday, according to St. Gertrude High School in Richmond run by the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia.
Apparently ICE policy does not include retention of those determined to be in the country illegally, even when the offender has been previously arrested. The death of Sister Denise Mosier, and the critical injuries of two other Nuns is on the hands of illegal migrant policies.
“I have been saying for months now that this administration’s new policy of concentrating almost solely on ‘criminal aliens,’ and not enforcing the laws by deporting known illegal aliens, would have devastating consequences. Now, we see the tragic results this ‘virtual amnesty’ policy of the Obama administration has caused,” said Rep. Harold Rogers of Kentucky, the ranking Republican on the House Appropriations homeland security subcommittee.
In a June 30 memo, John T. Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for ICE, said agents should focus their capture and deportation efforts on illegal immigrants who were suspected of terrorism, had been convicted of violent crimes or were repeat offenders, gang members or “aliens who otherwise pose a serious risk to public safety.” He did not define what rose to the level of serious risk.
The latest ICE statistics show that the agency has stepped up deportations of criminals, but has slowed deportation of other illegal immigrants. The agency also is holding fewer illegal immigrants at any one time than it did last year, according to the statistics.
Every drunk driving charge should be penalized with a day or two in jail. Perhaps neophytes, who would rarely drive drunk, would be convinced never to do it again, but once driving under the influence is a second offense, there should be no mercy. Carlos Montana deserves to spend the rest of his life in an American prison. Prayers for Sister Denise and the injured Nuns.
