A 13-year-old girl tragically died after an accident caused by an illegal alien.
A 13-year-old Florida girl is dead after an illegal alien from Argentina driving without a license struck the child with her car.
“Deputies said Mariana Perez Borroto, of Kissimmee, was bicycling to Lake Marion Creek Middle School shortly after 7:45 a.m. when she was hit by a minivan being driven by Micaela Coronel,” according to WFTV.
The local news site confirmed that Coronel was living in the United States on an expired visa.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office released a statement regarding Coronel’s arrest, saying that they have “charged her with operating a motor vehicle without a valid DL causing death, which is a third degree felony.”
“Coronel told deputies she’s been in the country on a ‘visitor pass’ from Argentina since October 2018, and presented them with an Argentinian identification card,” according to the statement. “She does not have a Florida driver’s license, and deputies determined through their investigation that she does not have a valid driver’s license at all.”
The Sheriff’s Office is working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to determine the next steps in the case.
Coronel reportedly told the police that she could not see out of her windshield, which was about 80 percent covered with condensation at the time of the crash.
Meanwhile, the battle over illegal immigration rages in Washington, D.C., as both parties have failed to secure the Southern border with Mexico. There have also been no reforms to the visa program, which could have prevented the latest tragedy which can be blamed on the America’s insane immigration policies.
As illegal border crossings surge, Democrats blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget. President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the issue, with plans to diver Department of Defense funding for the project, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration.
