As the crisis at America’s southern border continues to play out—and as an unknown number of undocumented individuals continue to be released into our country—along comes a story of yet another heinous crime committed by an illegal immigrant within our homeland.
Authorities in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, say an undocumented immigrant using a fake driver’s license was behind the wheel of a van that struck a 12-year-old boy on Thursday evening of this week.
A company van belonging to a painting company hit a boy in its path on Anderson Avenue in Cliffside Park around 6 p.m., Deputy Police Chief Vincent Capano said, as the Daily Voice website reported.
The boy suffered foot pain and swelling on his forehead. He was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment.
The driver of the van, a 25-year-old man, “gave responding officers a bogus driver’s license,” according to the deputy chief, the same outlet reported.
Turns out that man is here in the U.S. illegally.
Police issued 12 summonses and then released him.
This unfortunate (and preventable) accident occurred as the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas—among other points along the border—has gotten completely out of hand in recent weeks.
Fox News has been reporting extensively on the crisis in Del Rio, as the number of illegal migrants—mostly from Haiti, but from many other countries as well—swelled to as many as 15,000 or so over the past week.
Now, as Townhall points out, even CNN had to admit that the Biden administration is to blame after “calls for increased resources appear to have gone unmet until recent days when thousands and thousands of migrants were forced to wait under a bridge near the U.S.-Mexico border.”
