On February 19th a woman, Alianiss Nunez Morales, was driving a van that T-boned the school bus with such force it knocked the bus over on it’s side. The bus was going south on Hwy. 23 a mile south of Cottonwood, Minnesota and the van being driven by Alianiss was going east on Lyon County Road 24. The accident took place at 3:30pm so the sun was to the back of the van’s driver. The initial story published by the Twin City newspaper (Star and Tribune AKA Star and Sickle) didn’t even publish the driver’s name in the initial story and even went so far as to say as there might not even be anyone at fault…huh?? The bus was carrying 28 students, of which about 14 were injured in addition to the four who died on the spot. A pickup truck was crushed by the bus when it fell over and it is thought another vehicle ran into the back of the bus.
It was quite curious that when the story came out there were suspicions that the driver of the van was an illegal immigrant but the liberal press didn’t want to discuss that possibility. The first news that came out indicated that she didn’t have a driver’s license, only an ID. It was later discovered that the ID was fake and that even the name she was using was false. Two days following the crash (today), it was revealed that she was an illegal immigrant. It was also revealed that she had been pulled over by the police two years earlier for a traffic violation but nothing was done about her illegal status at the time.
Cottonwood is fairly close to Worthington, Minnesota. One of three sanctuary cities in Minnesota, the other two being Minneapolis and St. Paul.
If this woman had been deported two years ago when stopped by the police there would be four children alive today that are dead.

The Sanctuary Cities Info site and blog have been put in place to provide a site to gather information on the Sancutuary City phenomenon. Various cities, counties, and states across the country have chosen officially or unofficially to ignore alien status when encountered by the local law enforcement agencies. These various governemnt entities have chosen to defy federal law to cooperate with ICE. I am hoping this site will raise the awareness to this issue and perhaps these sanctuary cities can reverse their rulings and will help support our federal laws.
This goes beyond allowing illegal aliens into the country, but they might be terrorists, criminals, have contagious diseases, or have other malicious intent. We hear almost daily of an illegal immigrant breaking a law, murdering someone, or being involved in a terrorist act.
Even if the illegal immigrant doesn’t have a malicious intent, they generally put a burden on our social service structure. Their children are put in school without paying property taxes, they demand hospital services without having paid taxes or paid for insurance. They obtain vehicles, get in accidents, and flee the scene. Legal residents do a lot of the same things, but at least have the right to be here to do these things.
The United States welcomes immigrants to apply and enter the country through a legal process. Most of us were immigrants or were the progeny of immigrants from all over the world. We support and defend those under military or civil strife. We have opened out arms to Cubans, Somalies, and Cambodians amongst others. We also provide aid and various services to people all over the world. We are not cold hearted, we just want you to obey our laws.
