AP: Nun Death Rallies Un-Christian Forces

From an outraged (at the anti-illegals sentiment) Associated Press:

 

Nun’s death rallies anti-immigration forces

By Suzanne Gamboa And Kathleen Miller, Associated Press Writers
August 8, 2010

WASHINGTON – In Arizona, the shooting death of a rancher blew the lid off simmering anger over border security and helped solidify support for a tough new immigration law. A similar eruption threatens in Virginia following the death of a Catholic nun in a car accident involving a man in the country illegally and accused of drunken driving.

The Benedictine Sisters of Virginia tried to discourage using the death of Sister Denise Mosier as a "forum of the illegal immigration agenda" and pleaded for a focus on "Christ’s command to forgive."

"The sisters’ mission is peace and love," said Corey Stewart, chairman of Prince William County’s Board of Supervisors. "My mission is law enforcement and the protection of public safety."

Prince William County, about 25 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., stepped up its immigration enforcement in 2007 amid explosive growth of its Hispanic and immigrant populations. Under Stewart’s leadership, the county implemented a local policy requiring police to determine the immigration status of all people arrested on suspicion of violating state or local laws.

That sounds vaguely familiar. But where is the lawsuit from Mr. Holder’s Justice Department? Imagine such a ‘patchwork’ just 25 miles south of Washington?

Stewart rushed back into the immigration debate after the Aug. 1 accident, firing off a statement that President Barack Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and members of Congress "all have blood on their hands."

"What I’m hoping is that this situation, which because it involves a nun has drawn the nation’s attention, can serve as a catalyst for change and force the administration to come clean about its catch-and-release policies," Stewart said. He also says that the tragedy illustrates the need for Virginia to toughen its drunken driving laws.

What an obvious racist. In enlightened California they are even doing away with DUI checkpoints that might inconvenience illegal aliens.

Even though Stewart says he’s not running for higher office now, he is seen as a possible lieutenant governor candidate in three years. "Regardless of what he says, there is no question people would be interested in seeing him move up within the Republican Party," said Stephen Farnsworth, an assistant communications professor at George Mason University.

Gee, how did the AP ever stumble across Mr. Farnsworth. And how did he just happen to give them this quote.

The day after the crash, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II issued an advisory opinion concluding that police have authority to inquire into the immigration status of any person stopped or arrested, similar to the Arizona immigration law that is under federal court review…

The sisters at the Bristow, Va., monastery have buried Mosier, who would have turned 67 on Aug. 26. Two other nuns injured in the crash, Charlotte Lange and Connie Ruth Lupton, have undergone surgery and remain in critical condition.

The man charged in the case, Carlos A. Martinelly Montano, 23, of Bolivia, had two prior drunken driving convictions, but was not required to serve any of his 30-day sentence for the first one. A Prince William County judge required Montano to serve only 20 days of his approximately one-year sentence on his second conviction.

Local officials turned him over to federal immigration enforcement officers after the second incident and after sentencing, but federal officers released him both times while he awaited hearings.

Montano is being held at the Prince William County Adult Detention Center, and the county’s prosecutor is promising to ask a grand jury to consider charges that could put him in prison for 40 years.

What a laugh.

Montano entered the U.S. illegally with his parents and siblings, his uncle Luis Ronald Montano told The Associated Press. He attended American schools in New Jersey and Virginia from third grade through high school. He is engaged and is the father of two boys, ages 1 and 2, who were born in Manassas, Va…

Luis Ronald Montano said the family understands Carlos has broken the law several times. They worry about the future of his two young sons. They expect he will be deported, but they have hired lawyers in hopes of keeping him here with minimum jail time.

Why do we suspect that these “hired” lawyers are from the ACLU and are working pro bono?

"He’s getting used to crucify all the illegal aliens in the United States," his uncle said.

The nuns have forgiven Montano. Mercy and forgiveness, the nuns say on their website, are not optional for Christians.

Our modern ‘penitentiary’ system is based entirely on the Christian idea of ‘forgiveness.’ Otherwise, we would have stuck with the previous tradition of corporal punishment or simply execution.

By all means forgive Mr. Montano, after he has spent 40 years or so in a place where he can reflect upon his transgressions.

Nearly half of the 292,663 people deported or removed by ICE this year through July 22 were considered criminals. That compares to 34 percent, or 136,343, in all of last year, a reflection of ICE’s focus on deporting people with criminal records…

And never mind that if Mr. Montano had been deported sooner he would not have had the chance to ruin the lives of three American citizens and the waste of taxpayer dollars keeping him under lock and key.

Stewart criticized ICE for releasing Montano, saying the county hands immigrants over "on a silver platter" after they’ve been convicted of crimes "and still they release them back into communities." He’s asking Congress to subpoena statistics from ICE on how many people who have committed crimes are released to the community

Why should this require a subpoena from Congress? Why isn’t this publicly accessible information? Why are so many statistics about illegal aliens kept more secret than real matters of national security?

The Benedictine Sisters operate several ministries, including providing transitional housing for homeless women and their children and an adult literacy project. None solely targets undocumented immigrants, Smith said in an e-mail, and the services are available to everyone.

The Rule of Benedict and the Gospel of Jesus Christ "compels us to reach out to the neighbor and the stranger, to the rich and the poor, to all who may come to our door," Smith said. "I might add that Sister Denise was a model for us in this reaching out and acceptance of diverse persons and cultures."

Unfortunately, Sister Denise is also a model for what happens when you ‘reach out and accept’ total lawlessness.

    And Jesus was crucified by the Romans and cleansed the sins of all mankind.

    However, if they crucify this guy, somehow, I don’t think the sins of all the illegals will be cleansed.

    There are eight million stories in the Naked City.

    Sister Denise Mosier is only one of them.

    Here’s another story, from a town that has virtually no immigrants (documented or undocumented) :

    Thanksgiving 2007, Boone NC. Young Andrew Newell was killed in a crash that also injured his father, mother, and sister. Juan Manuel Juarez Reyes, a drunken illegal alien, was speeding, driving his truck (no license, no insurance) in the wrong lane, and hit the Newell family at full speed. Their Lexus SUV was struck so hard that the SUV skidded 250 feet until it crashed into a police car, where it finally came to rest. It took rescue crews 45 minutes to pry the four bodies out of the tangled steel wreckage of the SUV. The father, Brian Newell, suffered severe head injuries, was in a coma for a week, and was hospitalized for months. He remains in rehabilitation. Daughter Jackie suffered severe damage to her face, mouth, and teeth, and required multiple surgeries.

    Thanksgiving will never be the same for the Newell family.

    People like the Newells and Sister Denise are just more grist for the Liberal mills.

    The Ruling Class has adopted an open borders policy that is turning our communities into killing fields.

    Since most Mexicans are Catholic, perhaps all the sympathy. Why don’t they post that if the killer were to ask for forgiveness and do penance then he will be forgiven, but not let back on the streets to kill again.

    Not an ounce of remorse from the family who say the killer is being treated cruelly? How compared to the great pain & suffering of 3 nuns, one who died.

  5. wardmama4 says:

    I can not comprehend the base, soulless, inhumane, amoral and just simply vileness that is required to pity and attempt to gin up sympathy for not only a convicted DUI driver who was (big surprise, NOT) DUI driving again – but a recidivist criminal who is in this country illegally which oh btw Associated (with Terrorists) Press – is a Federal Crime.

    Death, mayhem, pain, suffering, millions in medical bills – all because one single criminal illegal alien was not deported (oh hell wasn’t even incarcerated much) – and we are suppose to cry for the criminal?

    God Help America.

  6. MrBill says:

    Christian forgiveness does not preclude the application of temporal justice. He’s gotten one; let’s hope he gets the other.
