As “Cryin Chuckie” Schummer” would say: We are a country of immigrants. Yep he’s right, but that was long ago Chuckie, too bad you weren’t in that car!

The DUI suspect who plowed his car into a family driving home from Disneyland, leaving a 6-year-old with serious head injuries, was an illegal immigrant who’s been deported 15 times in the last 15 years.
Yet another instance of an accident that never should have happened. Go sanctuary cities, right Democrats?
The crash occurred in San Diego’s San Ysidro district, about a block from the family’s home.
“We heard the tires screeching, but it wasn’t like the screeching of stopping, it was like the screeching of accelerating into the turn,” said Benjamin Lake, the father, who said his son, Lennox, was strapped into a car seat in the back of their vehicle at the time of collision, NBC 7 reported. “I saw bright lights and the next thing I know, I woke up with airbags deployed.”
Emergency responders found the mother unconscious and Lennox with various head and body injuries, including a fractured skull and bleeding from the nose and ears.
The suspect, meanwhile?
Well, he fled the scene, along with his passenger. Investigators found them about a half hour later, several miles from the scene, in a truck that matched the description of the involved vehicle.
Constantino Banda-Acosta, 38, now faces charges of driving under the influence, driving without a license and felony hit and run. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said he was a Mexican national and has been deported 15 times in 15 years. His passenger, unnamed, was also an illegal who’s been previously deported.
To Democrats, these two are victims, though — worthy of protection from the deportation storm.
The boy, meanwhile?
“Right now, he has a lot of swelling and can’t open either of his eyes so he’s scared about why he can’t see,” his father told KSWB.
What a tragedy — and the fact that Democrats, with all their open borders messaging and pro-sanctuary city policies, would side with the illegals over the innocent boy in terms of legal representation and constitutional protection is just despicable.
