Bloody Hands.

Consistent with their strong Christian values, the good sisters of the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia pray that the tragic death of Sister Denise Mosier does not become "politicized and become an apparent forum for the illegal immigration agenda".

In a statement from August 3, 2010, the nuns ask that we "re-focus [our] attention on the consequences of drinking and driving, and on Christ’s command to forgive."

Of course, it is right and proper that we do that.

However, in two articles [Nun's death rallies anti-immigration forces and Forgiven enough] it is implied that by receiving the nun's forgiveness the young, illegal immigrant responsible for the death of Sister Mosier should escape deportation. There is nothing in the nuns' statement that would suggest that Carlos A. Martinelly-Montano, 23, should not "experience the consequences of his decisions through our justice system."

One women is dead and two more are in critical condition because of Martinelly-Montano's decision to get behind the wheel of an automobile after drinking heavily.

As Corey Stewart, chairman of Prince William County's Board of Supervisors points out, there is certainly more than enough blame to go around. Stewart issued a statement saying that President Barack Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and members of Congress "all have blood on their hands."

If convicted, this will not be Martinelly-Montano's first drunken driving conviction. There have been two before - one in 2007 and another in 2008. Had the authorities deported Martinelly-Montano after his first conviction (as they should have; he is here illegally, after all) Sister Mosier would be alive today.

Martinelly-Montano's family may very well believe that "He had a bad drinking problem, but he's a good man," but that belief really changes nothing. According to a Washington Post article,

"The family entered the United States illegally in 1996, when their oldest son was 8, they said, and spent more than a decade as undocumented immigrants. In 2007, the parents, their daughter and their oldest son got work permits from the Department of Homeland Security, they said, even though they had been in the country illegally. Anthony Guerrieri, a spokesman for the temporary employment agency that hired Martinelly-Montano in April, said in an e-mail that the suspect 'successfully cleared the . . . employment verification process and upon hire, was eligible for employment in the U.S.' "

The system is broken and innocent people are suffering and dying because of government officials bowing down to goddess of political correctness.
