The Other Face of Illegal Immigration?

This is Adan Torres Garcia. Adan was driving his cargo van through Gwinnett Estates Mobile home park at 7pm on Sunday, when he ran over an 8-year old boy named Daniel who was riding his bike.
Daniel got stuck under the van and was dragged for several feet, tearing his arm 90% off of his body.
Adan got out of the van and, despite such a horrific wound to Daniel, he moved Daniel to the side of the road, then got back into his van and drove away. He only got about 20 feet before he had to stop again to remove Daniel's bike from underneath the van. After throwing the bike into a yard, Adan drove off.
Fortunately, some neighbors got Adan's tag number and he was quickly caught by police.
Daniel is in fair condition at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, but doctors don't know how much use he will have of his arm, or how much rehabilitation he will have to go through.

Adan is being held on:
  1. Causing an accident involving death or serious personal injury.
  2. Serious injury by vehicle.
  3. DUI.
  4. Driving without a driver's license.
  5. A previous "failure to Appear" warrant.
  6. And he is being held under OCGA code 99-9997 "Hold for other Agency" (That would be immigration).


  • I can't believe they actually arrested him. It was probably because the little boy got hurt. Our police up this way have a nice little track record of letting Illimms go because "the Federal government won't do anything about it and it's too much paperwork" to bother with.

    There are several of us who have been the victim of property crimes at the hands of Illimms and have been told the same thing. That's what makes the whole "immigration" debate irksome.

  • I think it was Fred Reed, who said, "Mexican doctors and lawyers are not the ones jumping the border. It's the lowest rung of Mexican society; the unskilled, the illiterates, the criminals."

  • This is SICK. He ought to run over by his truck, then left to suffer.

    I have a hard time being non-judgemental here largely due to my being a parent of a young child, who frequently rides his bicycle around the neighborhood.

    And if the Feds do not wish to arrest, prosecute, punish and eventually deport illimms that do not respect our laws, this debate will get far worse, with a slant toward the isolationist.

    I know many illims that aren't dentists or doctors or people of status in the home Latin American countries, but still have some respect for law, and oftern are very hard working. These are, in my experience, the norm, not the exception. The person who is the topic of this artilce makes the norm look bad.

    It only takes one bad apple...

  • Fred Reed shows, in that quote provided, his ignorance by grouping the unskilled and illiterate with criminals.

    Seriously, someone who has no 'skills' or cannot read can at the least have a positive outcome. They could possibly learn how to read or learn a 'skill'. Criminals kill and the most positive outcome, if any, is that they do nothing.

    Unskilled? what? In what way? Is reading a skill? Is being illiterate mean you can't live a positive life? Is it not dumb that he groups the 'unskilled' and 'illiterate' with the 'criminals'? Is it not disgusting that he even titles people, who might have done nothing wrong in their lives, as 'unskilled' or 'illiterates'?

    With him, it isn't about the Mexican Society. It is about his own prejudices. Prejudices, such as racism, are brought only by people who are over-privileged and insecure.

  • Yeah, Fred's such a mexican-hating racist that he moved to Mexico and married a mexican woman with a daughter.

  • what about the bike? Is it totalled or will it be auctioned?
