As lawmakers debate immigration, one woman is outraged by the light sentence handed to an illegal immigrant who killed her husband and two youngest children in a car crash.
Margarito Rosales was sentenced Sept. 29 to just two years after pleading guilty to the crime that destroyed Courtney Hacking’s family. She says law enforcement is not taking the problem of illegals who commit crimes seriously.
”What’s the punishment for them? They see nothing. They see no consequence. They see a slap on the wrist, they get deported and they go ‘Well that wasn’t a big deal, I’ll come back and do it again.’ But each time they come, their crimes get worse and worse. And them being in this country to begin with, the word everyone seems to be forgetting is, illegal.”
Courtney Hacking was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
