My own personal gripe about the presence of illegal aliens in the United States:
You better believe that I vote against any and all who support the concept of sanctuary cities or the concept of taking illegal "migrants" — caravan or no caravan!
My personal story....
In my early 50's and without my having any pre-existing condition including any previous spinal injury, one horrible morning, as I was driving to work (I owned my own business at the time), I sustained a permanently-disabling spinal injury resulting in Neurogenic Pain Syndrome (aka Neuropathic Pain Syndrome) because of an illegal alien under deportation order and driving a Yellow Cab. This cab driver ran a 4-way stop sign and rear-ended me as he was going about 35 MPH.
Before you say, "The cab company is responsible," think again. These cab drivers, most with few assets and little insurance, are not covered by the cab company's insurance.
I sued for less than the insurance amount that the cab driver had — and his insurance policy was for only $100,000 coverage. He was supposed to be carrying a policy of $300,000 coverage.
How did I fare in court?
Upon the pittance of a settlement (Think of a low amount, then think of a much lower amount), the officer of the court told me in words that will echo in my mind until I go to my grave:
"The sympathies of the court lie with the poor immigrant. If the situation were reversed, you'd be taken to the cleaners'.
NO JUSTICE FOR ME!
The so-called settlement I received didn't begin to cover my out-of-pocket medical expenses. Those expenses -- and this tormenting pain -- still continue to this day. 24/7/365!
The pain I have suffered since May 2005 is much akin to the nerve pain caused by shingles.
Come live my life, and see how much you love sanctuary cities and illegal aliens! Especially, but not limited to, behind the wheel.
Sooner or later, something like what happened to me will happen to you or to — God forbid! — your child or significant other.
I urge any and all who read this commentary to reconsider favoring sanctuary cities and the admission of caravans of "migrants." The outcome will be even worse that the situation with which I have to deal.
