A drunk man recently left Texas motorists shaken as he began driving recklessly on the freeway. Unfortunately, a bad situation would quickly get worse as the drunken illegal immigrant drove down eighteen miles of highway while firing a rifle, hitting multiple victims including a 7-year-old child, who he shot in the head. The late-night pursuit was nothing short of frightening for everyone involved, but the drunk criminal would get what he deserved when he woke up to his own worst nightmare the next morning — and no one feels an ounce of sympathy for him.
According to local news source KXAN, 25-year-old Rolando Martinez of Austin, Texas, who has been living in the United States illegally, was driving drunk down Interstate 35 at 2 a.m. for over an hour when police began to give chase. Martinez drove recklessly from south Austin at Stassney Lane up to Wells Branch Parkway, causing 911 to receive multiple calls until 3:15 a.m. when the police pursuit ended.
Police later found .223 caliber rounds on the ground after Martinez began firing a rifle while speeding down the interstate. The illegal immigrant ended up shooting four innocent people, including a seven-year-old girl who remains in critical condition at a nearby hospital after she was struck in the head. An unnamed man also sustained a gunshot wound to the back of his head while a woman suffered a wound to her arm.
KXAN reports that around 3:10 a.m. a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper found an abandoned vehicle near I-35 and US 290. He saw a man run away from the scene and later discovered a gun inside the car.
According to the affidavit, more than 15 loose shells were scattered inside the vehicle, and their location made it appear that the rifle had been shot out of both the passenger and driver’s side windows. License plate data tracked the car back to Martinez, who thought he had gotten away. However, he was about to get a wake-up call from his worst nightmare.
The next morning, authorities located and arrested Martinez at a home on municipal traffic warrants. According to The Gateway Pundit, when they questioned him, he told them he had been drinking at the Nocturno Nightclub and didn’t remember much from that night, but he did remember waking up in a grassy median near the freeway, according to the affidavit. Martinez is being held on a one million dollar bond and now has an Immigration and Naturalization Service detainer on him.
This is yet another example of why we need to secure our borders and remove those who have already shown a disregard for our laws by entering our country illegally. Instead, criminals like Martinez have been allowed to stay, thanks to the Democratic Party’s policies that our country endured for 8 long years.
Now, innocent lives are changed forever because our lawmakers allowed illegal criminals to spit on our laws. Then, they act surprised when those who entered illegally continue to ignore the rules, doing as they wish with no care as to whether it’s legal.
When is the left going to learn that we need to secure our borders in order to protect our people? There’s nothing wrong with legal immigration, but we should be seeking the best, not flooding our nation with criminals. No matter how much the left likes to deny it, that’s exactly what an illegal immigrant is — a criminal whose proven they have no problem breaking our laws.
It is no surprise that this story has not drawn national attention with the liberal mainstream media since it blows their narrative to bits — much like this illegal alien attempted to do to innocent people with a gun he could not have owned legally as an illegal alien. This whole damn situation destroys so much liberal narrative all at once, it would be amusing if it wasn’t so gut-wrenchingly infuriating and heartbreaking.
Once again, the left sacrifices an innocent child on the altar of political correctness for the sake of an agenda that will only cause more death and destruction. This child’s injuries should not be in vain.
As she fights for her life, we must fight for this to never happen again by sharing her story. This is why the wall is so crucial, especially in states near the border. We don’t want to have a constant fear that an illegal is going to lose their mind and attack our streets — we have plenty of problems of our own, where we should be utilizing our resources to make America great again.
