Illegals on our highways – just a few of the week’s victims

He directed “A Christmas Story,” “Porkies” and many other films. Director Bob Clark lost his life this week in an auto crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California caused by an illegal alien drunk driver. Clark and his son were killed four days before Easter.

The 24-year-old illegal, a Mexican, who had a blood-alcohol level of 0.24 percent, three times the 0.08 legal limit, steered his sport utility vehicle into the wrong lane of the highway, striking Clark's sedan head-on. The filmmaker and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, died at the scene.

In Virginia Beach, Virginia, a drunk illegal immigrant slammed his car into the back of another car, killing two Virginia Beach teenagers. The driver, a 22-year-old, admitted that he was in this country illegally from Mexico. The driver had prior driving infractions involving alcohol in the city of Chesapeake, Virginia, and had not been deported. He was found guilty and only paid a fine.

And on Saturday in California, a bicyclist was left in critical condition after being struck in a hit-and-run crash caused by an illegal alien. The 58-year-old bicyclist was riding in a bicycle lane shortly after 3 p.m. when a vehicle heading the same direction veered into the lane and struck him. The illegal got out of the vehicle with his 4-year-old son and ran away, but was found and arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run. He had no driver's license or other identification and spoke no English.
