An Alabama lawmaker is lashing out at elected leaders who harbor illegal aliens — warning that they are putting Americans in grave danger.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show that he would be willing to wager that “we’ve had far more Americans killed by illegal aliens on American soil than we lost in either of the Persian Gulf/Iraqi wars or in Afghanistan all put together.”
“I hope that will emphasize the magnitude of the problem,” Brooks told me.
He tore into lawmakers who are encouraging illegals to cross the border.
“Congressmen, senators and presidents who encourage illegal aliens to come to America, who give cover to illegal aliens who come to America are aiding and abetting the killings that are going on of American citizens by those illegal aliens who are in the United States of America because of the direct conduct of congressmen, senators and the president of the United States,” he said.
The congressman’s comments came after an illegal alien was charged in connection with a drunk driving accident that killed a three-year-old Virginia boy and injured three others – including the child’s mother.
Police say Jose Romero, 27, slammed into an ambulance taking the child to a hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He was allegedly driving without a license and they also believe the man is an illegal immigrant.
According to court documents the driver blew more than twice the legal limit on the breathalyzer – two hours after the accident.
Television station Fox 8 reports a witness described Romero has having “bloodshot, glassy eyes,” “slurred speech” and looking “grossly impaired.”

Federal agents have placed an immigration hold on Romero – so it’s unlikely he will hurt any more citizens.
That’s of little comfort to the family of the dead three-year-old.
He is not the first American killed on American soil by an illegal alien – and he will not be the last – until Congress gets serious about securing our borders.
How long will it be until Congress understands that American dreams matter too?
