Two Dead, Dozens Injured in Louisiana Bus Crash – Illegal Alien Driver W/out License…

A terrible bus crash in Louisiana today results in the death of two people and dozens more injured.  The local fire chief who was responding to an earlier accident was one of those killed when the out of control bus collided with the fire engine.

Louisiana – State Police told Fox 8 firefighters responding to the earlier crash were attempting to close Interstate 10 just west of New Orleans when the bus lost control for unknown reasons and struck a fire engine on scene.

The bus then struck three firefighters, throwing them from the elevated portion of the interstate over the guard rail and into the water below.

Among those killed Sunday morning included a local fire chief, District Chief Spencer Chauvin with the St. John the Baptist Fire Department, Matey said.

Louisiana State Police said that there were 30-40 passengers on the bus, all of which suffered minor to moderate injuries.  Matey described the bus passengers as a group of volunteers heading from New Orleans to Baton Rouge to help flood victims. (read more)

Killed: Fire chief Spencer Chauvin (pictured, with family) died in the crash after being knocked over a guard rail and into water.

However, what most national media (including this NBC report, although they do hint at it) do not reveal, is the fact the bus driver was an illegal alien with no valid drivers license.

[…]  Louisiana State Police said the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, did not have a driver’s license and was not licensed to drive a commercial vehicle. A public information officer said he was from Honduras and in the U.S. illegally. (link)

Terribly sad, and unfortunately like so many other incidents that have been noted, completely avoidable if we just had stronger controls on immigration.

Having followed the immigration crisis, and especially the Obama administrations approach toward funding illegal immigration, there’s almost a guaranteed scenario here where the bus, driver and volunteers all stem from a faith-based charity group like Baptist Children and Family Services, or Catholic Charities.  See It All HERE

The same faith-based charity that provided the volunteers relief effort, most likely also provided the illegal aliens with safe harbor – and it’s almost certain all of this was paid for with tax payer funds.

    I live near there. I’m stuck back where how a BUS COMPANY can hire a DRIVER (much less an illegal alien) without a DRIVERS LICENSE?

    And that fails to mention how the worthless State of Louisiana can LICENSE and INSPECT such a so-called COMMERCAL CARRIER in the first place?

    Incidentally, New Orleans is also a Sanctuary City with a legendary history of political payoffs, which no doubt answers my previous questions.

    And as for an alleged “faith based” organization’s involvement in this deadly parody, I’d say that’s par for the course in our “third world” nation today!

      Asking a Hispanic for his driver’s license is profiling, and would be aggressively investigated by Lynch.

      I was rear ended by an unlicensed Spanish speaking individual. His handler at least had insurance. The handler showed up a few minutes later. Asked me to lie and say he, the handler, was driving. I declined.

      The Deputy Sheriff arrived. Said he had to go. Told me there was no point giving the driver a ticket since he wouldn’t show. How’s that for profiling. I know he was right, but it pissed me off because I know I would get a ticket if the roles had been reversed.

        My dad was a cop. One of the things he hated most was illegal alien drivers, who never had a license or insurance or registration. To deal with them what he used to do was impound the vehicle which he was perfectly right to do, being as there’s no license registration or insurance on it.

        Once it was impounded only registered owner can claim it, so essentially impounding it illegal aliens cart is de facto civil asset forfeiture

          One of my favorite things to do when I was a cop. Most cops today, with our laptops, know before we even pull you over, if your vehicle is currently registered and has insurance, and the status of the drivers license of the vehicle owner. So, don’t lie if you are ever pulled over and know you have an issue. It only pisses the cop off more. When towing someone’s vehicle, I wouldn’t even tell the driver his vehicle was being impounded. I would collect their info, and tell them to sit tight while I checked out their info. And they would sit there hoping I would cut them a break. They would of course, put it together once the tow truck pulled up in front of their vehicle and started making preparations for towing it. I would then put a hold on it that it had to be picked up by a licensed driver, with proof of current registration and insurance. I made sure to tow at least two vehicles a shift.

          Needless to say, I got perfect and timely service from our contract tow company. I had a rule, if you had any two of the three, you got towed. No insurance, unregistered vehicle, suspended or no DL. If you had just one of the three, chances are I would cut you a break, depending on your attitude, and let you off with a warning to get it taken care of.

        So they’re no longer tracking this stuff by refusing to even ticket the illegal alien. That way, they purposely skew statistics like they do with other important issues plaguing our nation.

        That makes no sense. In most jurisdictions you don’t have to go to court unless you want to fight the ticket. All you have to do is pay a fine. If you don’t pay the fine they put a warrant out on you, and if you get stopped again you get arrested.

        Of course, that said, it appears there is a vast system that is extra-legal where illegal aliens are never asked their status, never asked for a green card, never held accountable to uphold any of our laws, because God forbid we should scare or offend them.

        Bill, one thing that 8 years of this administration has taught us is that the laws only apply to citizens. The illegals and refugees always seem to get a pass because their handlers (our government) demands they get preferential treatment!

    • Exactly, and what about insurance coverage? How the heck do you get covered when you hire unlicensed drivers? I’m sure whatever insurance they have will deny coverage.

        I remember back when I was a US style liberal and found myself thinking, when we were having an insecurity spike ( an acquaintance 200 metres from my home had woken up to find a drug addict in her home for the second time and everything covered in blood and the police said they couldn’t do anything about the drug dealer in her building with queues down her stairwell and a Ferrari), that I needed to be willing to get raped for my principles. That is when I stopped being a liberal because it was patently ridiculous.

      Just honoring our Emperor’s edict to not discriminate against minorities including illegal aliens. This man who was driving the bus – what proof does anyone have of ‘country of origin’ – he could have been passing through on his way to way to commit Bus Jihad. His name is rather an odd combo. This insanity has to stop – no more donations to any of these traitorous NGOs. Dry it all up, Baby!

    All I can say is make SURE you have good coverage for UNinsured and UNDERinsured drivers. Some states policy has them combined and some don’t. However I’m in TN and most drivers carry bare minimum which is 15-25k. I was hit and had my car totaled and let me tell you after two years of treatment 25k won’t cover everything. I upped my insurance to 200k for uninsured and underinsured drivers and the cost was about +$5 a month more. It sucks but that’s a reality of living in Obamas America. You have to plan to be in an accident by someone who has no license or insurance. It’s just math.

    Just to add insult to the families of the dead — just heard that the illegal alien driver was stopped THREE WEEKS AGO on I-10 for DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE.

    That cop and his administration/policy (and all the way to the White House and Congress) that didn’t report him to ICE using a 287G LOA is complicit in these deaths.

    If a cop sees a bank robber (a federal crime) he can arrest him, but not an illegal alien who drives on federal roads w/o a license.

    Obama has been making existing voluntary 287G LOA’s much more difficult to use, and has cancelled some existing ones, I understand.

    Trump should make 287G, along with E-Verify, MANDATORY AND UNIVERSAL! And he should mention this accident as a great example of why we need 287G to make local and state LE the “first responders” for illegal immigration.

    287G (as an OPTIONAL program) was created in the same 1996 law that made sanctuary cities illegal (but with no effective penalty). Time to make 287G mandatory and put stiff penalties behind sanctuary cities!

    That seems to be Christian Anthony Lombardo, whose still-active FB page shows an interest in bus technology. Also, Christian Lombardo at one time was a co-owner and/or co-operator of a car lot with a a certain Ahmed Salem:
