The illegal alien Cottonwood. MN van driver charged with killing four young children in a horrible schoolbus crash had a bit of a history with the law. Blind law that apparently ignored her immigration status–and that of her “boyfriend” as well. Gee, wonder what his status was. Go figure:
The woman charged with causing the fatal school bus crash in southwestern Minnesota was pulled over by police a month before the accident on the same highway, and in what appears to have been the same minivan.
Her boyfriend, who was driving the van at the time, was ticketed for driving without a license, according to a Minnesota Public Radio report.
Early on Jan. 16, 2008, a woman who identified herself as Alianiss Morales was riding in the minivan on a stretch of Highway 23, about 40 miles from the spot of last week’s fatal crash that killed four students from Lakeview Public School. A Kandiyohi County deputy pulled over the Plymouth Voyager after noting the license plate wasn’t easily visible.
The driver, Samuel Rivera Melendez, had a learner’s permit but not a license. His girlfriend told the officer she had no state ID card or driver’s license. Melendez would later pay $187 in fines.
“Morales” is really Guatemalan illegal alien Olga Marina Franco.
Who coached her to lie to police about her identity and who told her to say she was from Mexico?
Someone should start asking her employer.

One of the victims had a twin sister who turned 10 at her brother’s funeral:
A girl whose twin brother and older brother were among four children killed in a bus crash turned 10 at their funeral Monday, with 1,400 mourners in a school gym pausing to sing “Happy Birthday” to her.
The service for Jesse Javens, 13, and Hunter Javens, 9, included some painful smiles meant for Hunter’s twin, Sasha.
“Hunter would want to celebrate his twin sister’s birthday. Jesse would want to celebrate his little sister’s birthday,” the Rev. Gloria Anderson said at Lakeview School in the southwest Minnesota town of Cottonwood, near the site of last week’s crash.
