Sorry for two immigration posts in one afternoon, but I thought this was particularly egregious: the Public Safety Committee of the California Assembly just rejected, 5-2, a law that would require police to notify ICE of illegal immigrants convicted of driving under the influence–with the expectation that they would be deported.
More about Sara Cole and why the law was named after her here:
Bill Cole, Sara’s ex-husband, is trying to do more. Cole is seeking support for Assembly Bill 1882 – “Sara’s Law” – which would require police to report illegal immigrants to immigration if they are convicted of driving under the influence. Rodriguez was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI in March of 2007, a year and a half before his drunken driving resulted in the injuries suffered by Sara Cole.
The Sara’s Law site is here. I hope the Assembly will reconsider its decision. It’s indefensible.
MORE: Patterico blogged the crash that injured Sara Cole here. It looks like her ex-husband may have chimed in in the comments. (h/t to Annursa for that.)blog comments powered by Disqus
