Ingraham: Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants Often 'Buried' or Not Reported by Media
'Even one American life lost is too much.'
In her opening monologue, Laura Ingraham looked at some under-reported "American tragedies," arguing that crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the United States largely go unnoticed.
"American citizens brutalized, abused, murdered by illegal aliens," Ingraham said. "Yet most of these stories are buried at the back of the local metro sections in your local papers. And most of them are never heard on national news broadcasts. ... So tonight, we're going to report on a handful of these American tragedies."
She pointed to the case of Constantino Banda-Acosta, a Mexican national who was deported 17 times before he allegedly crashed his truck into a family's van in San Diego and fled the scene. A young boy in a child safety seat in the backseat suffered serious head trauma and now suffers from cognitive issues.
She noted that another illegal immigrant, Jose Luis Alonso-De Leon, is charged in the fatal hit-and-run of a woman in Fairhope, Alabama. Authorities said he had been deported twice and had used at least seven different aliases in the past.
Ingraham also reported on Billy Yoe Budier-Herrera, believed to be an undocumented immigrant, who brandished a machete and tried to take two infants from their mothers at a Louisiana Walmart.
She said these examples only scratch the surface of the crimes that are committed on a daily basis by individuals who never should have been in the U.S. in the first place.
"Every life lost, every child harmed, every woman abused are victims of not only the criminals who committed those crimes, but also of the government that allowed criminals to enter this country in the first place," Ingraham said, adding that our elected officials are supposed to represent the American people, not cater to illegal aliens.
