WRAL in North Carolina ran a documentary called Crossing the Line that covers illegal alien drunk drivers and the impacts on society. They cover the story of Scott Gardner who was killed by a drunk driving illegal alien. They interviewed Scott's family.
In addition they talk to some in support of illegal aliens who point out the "reasons" why Hispanic illegal aliens in particular drink and drive and admit that statistically Hispanic males have a higher incidence of drunk driving and causing accidents. They attribute this to the "machismo" culture of Mexico where it's looked at as weak to admit you are too drunk to do anything.
Meanwhile American citizens are injured and killed daily in order to support this multiculturalism belief that machismo has any place in our society when it comes to drinking and doing anything.
Although drunken drivers come in all colors and from all cultures, an unusually high number of them in North Carolina are Hispanic immigrants.
A study from the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center shows that Hispanics involved in car crashes were two-and-a-half times more likely to be drunk than white drivers and three times more likely to be drunk than black drivers.
Hispanics also account for 18 percent of drunken-driving arrests, while making up less than 7 percent of the state’s population. Drunken driving is also the number one killer of young Hispanic men in North Carolina.

Good post, Digger.
I agree that there does seem to be a problem here. Do you think it is fair that we get all this media hype over Drunk Driving when it involves an illegal alien, as compared to maybe just an American drunk driver?

Drunk driving is a ridiculous travesty any way you look at it.
However, the fact remains that these are people who aren't supposed to be here. Many times they have been previously arrested on drunk driving charges and weren't deported. Those who were deported just came right back over due to our lack of border controls.
It's just as tragic, but is more angering when the death could have been prevented if our laws would have been enforced.
