A bit late, I know but I have been seething over this and wanted to wait until I was sane again!
(No smarty pants retorts!)
What bothers me is how the “News” never bothers asking the important questions!
Where were these Illegals coming from?
How did they enter the country?
Who owns the van and why was an Illegal driving?
It took the local news station three days to report what was already suspected … Illegals!
(There were 16 people in the van!)
Mother, 5-year-old son among 6 killed in I-95 crash
