15-year-old Texan Charged with Murder of 9 Illegal Immigrants

A 15-year-old Texan boy has been charged with nine counts of murder after the van he was driving crashed, killing nine illegal immigrants and wounding for more. The gutted van had been stuffed with 19 illegal immigrants; they were pulled over,and one of them ran for it, after which the van took off only to crash a few blocks later. Of the four illegal immigrants who escaped, two have been apprehended.

 

The boy will also be charged with one account of evading. He claims he drove the van because his family was threatened.

 

A 23-year-old witness to the aftermath of the wreck, Diana Castillo, said that amidst the backpacks and water bottles, “the bodies were still moving. The bodies were everywhere,” and added that “It’s really sad they came over here to live a better life and then they lost their lives.”

The van crashed at 10:30 p.m. on U.S. Route 83 despite the fair weather and despite that fact that the police were not pursuing them. “at this point, there is no reason to believe there was a pursuit,” said Border Patrol spokesman Enrique Mendiola.

 

The boy has also been charged with 17 counts of smuggling a person. All the illegal immigrants were men and Mexican citizens.

    I’m sure Eric Holder will now sue Texas for allowing the young Texan who was driving to be born,and the families of the illegals will each sue the US for millions because we left them into the USA.

    What is your problem, racist maggot? I am white and I am disgusted by your ignorance and racism. Crawl back under your rock, dandruff flake!

    @Lori, racist maggot yourself.
    So you’re white. Who mentioned race here until you did? These people were in our country illegally and attempting to evade capture and be deported. They ran from the police and suffered for it. That’s not unusual.

    Mexicans come in all colors exactly the same as we do. Leave race out of it, racist maggot.

    Headline says 17 year old..story says 15 year old. I’m Hispanic and I’m confused.

    @Lori
    You’re the racist here, “white” person. Someone mentioned a minor god of yours and you get all bent out of shape. Holder is a criminal scumbag just like his boss and responsible for dozens if not hundreds or thousands of deaths on both sides of the border with his gun smuggling. But its “racist” to criticize this particular gang of criminals because they claim to be “black”.
