Carload of Illegals Lead Texas Police on High Speed Chase That Leaves Several Dead
An SUV full of illegal immigrants flipped over during a high speed chase in the small town of Edna, Texas, killing six of the fifteen occupants and injuring several more.
According to police reports, the incident began around 1:30 a.m. when a Ford Explorer broke several traffic laws and didn't yield to a police officer who attempted to pull the vehicle over. Instead, the driver gunned the engine and led the police on a high speed chase along the main highway.
The crash happened as the driver of the SUV attempted to make a sharp turn at too high a speed. The driver lost control of the vehicle and it rolled several times, flinging at least four of the illegal immigrants from the vehicle.
Those four illegals died from their injuries as well as two others who weren't ejected from the Ford Explorer. After the crash two illegals attempted to flee on foot from the scene of the crash but were later apprehended by the police.
All the evidence indicates that the SUV was being used by human smugglers as a way to get illegal immigrants into the country and to avoid detection by the police. Upon further inspection of the vehicle, it was determined that the middle seat had been completely removed from the Ford Explorer and the back seat was reclined all the way to give more room for the fifteen passengers who were crammed inside.
Most of the occupants were from Honduras and Guatemala, further evidence that the immigration crisis is not confined solely to Mexico and its citizens, but that the open border proscribed by President Obama is drawing human traffickers from all of Central America.
Sheriff A.J. Louderback, the county sheriff in Jackson County, where the incident occurred, rightly placed the blame on President Obama, saying that the high speed chase was simply another incident that "highlights our President’s complete disregard for the rule of law."
