Wow… hope they’re doing well, the driver should be going to.jail for a long time, he did risk this people lives in exchange for.money.. hope he has his license suspended and get few years in jail for human traffic

The term “undocumented immigrant” is such a fluffy way to say criminal aliens. Any individual who bypasses the lawful system of entry of a sovereign nation means they broke the law. They are criminals and should never be welcomed. Employers who hire these migrant, panhandling bums, need to be punished. Those caught acting as human smugglers, need to be stripped of their citizenship, and given very long prison sentences without the possibility of parole. Build that wall and end this invasion. I could care less about the sob stories about people only looking for a better life. We have lifelong Americans looking for a better life and these fleas from the hell holes of the world are sucking the life blood out of our economy with the help of other communistic Americans. January 6th, 2021 wasn’t a day of sedition, November 3rd, 2020 was. The election was stolen. No one can ever convince me otherwise.
