Liberals and immigrant rights activists tell us that illegal aliens defy our laws and thumb their noses at our culture because they want a better life. But what about Americans who simply want life? Americans like sportscaster Bob Berry Jr. who was killed by a three-times deported illegal alien. Was Berry’s life less important than a lawbreaker’s desire to work our system?
News 9 reports that Berry was riding his motorcycle on Saturday in Oklahoma City. Gustavo Castilla Gutierrez was headed down the same street in the opposite direction. Because immigration laws meant nothing to the 26-year old illegal alien, traffic laws were equally unimportant. Gutierrez, who said he was distracted, pulled an illegal U-turn right in front of Barry. With no time to react, Barry crashed his motorcycle into Gutierrez’ car.
Barry was thrown from the bike and suffered massive internal and head injuries. Paramedics performed CPR at the scene and he was transported to a local hospital where he died. It was determined that Berry “took no improper action” and was solely the victim of the crash.
Bob Berry Jr. was a longtime sportscaster for KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City. He leaves behind a wife and four children.
Police soon learned that Gutirerrez didn’t have a driver’s license. Then they found he was in possession of cocaine. And the surprises just kept coming. They also discovered that he was an illegal alien that had been deported three times since 2010.
In at least two of the times Gutierrez voluntarily self-deported back to Mexico because he knew, thanks to our lax border security and immigration enforcement, he could easily sneak back in and face little to no repercussions.
Following the Charleston church shooting, President Obama used the tragedy to call for more gun control by saying that if Congress had passed these unconstitutional laws, “We might still have some more Americans with us. We might have stopped one shooter. Some families might still be whole. We all might have to attend fewer funerals.”
If Gutierrez weren’t in this country illegally, American Bob Berry Jr. would still be with us. Immigration enforcement would have stopped one death. His family would be whole. There would be no funeral.
No law ever considered would have stopped the church shooter, but tight border security and enforcement of our existing immigration laws would have kept Gustavo Gutierrez from slipping into this country so easily. If Obama is really looking for ways to save a few more American lives maybe he should stop putting illegal aliens before American citizens. Notice I said “if” because I honestly don’t believe Obama gives a sh*t.
Gutierrez has been charged with 2nd degree manslaughter, drug possession, and driving without a license. The charges could be amended if his blood test returns traces of drugs or alcohol. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has placed a detainer on Gutierrez. What’s the point? This illegal alien POS will just self-deport again and sneak right back into the US.
