The mom of an 8-year-old boy who was getting off a school bus at the Ashley Place Apartment complex was horrified to watch her son hit by a driver who never even bothered to stop as he got off the school bus. She was so enraged, in fact, that she followed the woman the short distance home and the two began to argue. The mom ultimately punched Joana Echeverria Mariche in the face, giving her a bloody nose, WBTV reports.
The street justice she got from the outraged mom could be the only kind Mariche will ever face for entering the country illegally and then deeming herself too good for the bus system. She topped off the crime of entering the country with the crime of driving illegally and then with the crime of illegal hit and run resulting in injury.
No biggie. Now, I wouldn’t recommend committing the above crimes if you are an American citizen. But Mariche isn’t, and so will likely benefit from driving illegally while illegal and illegally mowing down the boy. Yes benefit.
First, the hit and run will be knocked down to a misdemeanor from a low level felony in the plea deal, as is customary in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg justice system.
If she has a good attorney, she’ll be advised to stick around and face the charges rather than bolting. Here’s why. Charlotte was chosen as the test site for the new Obama administration policies on not enforcing immigration law at all unless the illegal alien in question has a serious felony criminal record and sometimes not even then.
This was announced in the Observer in September, when a group of illegals were arrested for illegally (how else?) blocking traffic. Here’s what the paper reported at the time:
Tuesday’s arrests were expected to be one of the first chances to see how a new Obama administration policy on illegal immigrants is implemented. The administration announced last month that those without criminal records – who are found to be a low priority because they are students, were brought to the United States as children or have long family ties to the country – would be released from jail and granted work permits.
Yup. Work permits. In Charlotte, test ground for Obama’s new attack on the rule of law, getting arrested on low level charges/breaking traffic laws could actually turn out to be a good idea if you want to work legally. (Read more on the new Obama immigration enforcment policies I’m referring to here. They actually incentivize illegals to get pregnant or get their partner pregnant in order to be allowed to stay, among other outrages.)
There is no telling what will happen with Mariche’s case, of course. She could bolt back to her home country or disappear again in this one. But many like her will no doubt hit the jackpot when they break the law in Charlotte, and elsewhere.
