Every Tuesday morning, about two dozen men and women, sometimes more, huddle quietly in an alcove on the second floor of the Indian River County Courthouse.This takes place over and over again, illegals continuing to flout the law with impunity.
They are illegal immigrants, mostly from Mexico, who have been charged with driving a vehicle without a valid driver's license.
In Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County Judge Philip J. Yacucci Jr. said he is "extremely frustrated" by the lack of a coherent federal policy on immigration because he sees 30 to 40 unlicensed immigrants in his courtroom each week.
"The federal government is hypocritical because it has zero policy to remedy illegal immigration," Yacucci said. "We're left at the state level to deal with the problem."
The Federal Government continues to fail to do its job. Catch and release is the name of the feds game and there is no indication they are willing to change.
Driving without a license and obviously without insurance is a serious offense. Why should American citizens be subjected to yet another threat from illegals?
Here is some information from Mexonline if you should find yourself needing to drive south of the border. If you don't think this is fair, try going down to Mexico and demonstrate against it.
Make sure you have Mexican auto insurance when driving into Mexico - the Mexican goverment (and police) do not recognize policies written by American Insurance companies, even if that policy has "Mexican" coverage.
U.S. & Canadian auto insurance is not valid in Mexico. While Mexican auto insurance is not mandatory, it is highly recommended. If you are in an accident or other vehicle-related problems and you do not have insurance, you may be arrested and your vehicle impounded until the authorities can figure out the situation.
If your car is found in Mexico beyond the authorized time, or without the appropiate documents, it will be immediately confiscated.
So much for our amigos to the south!
