    Update-woman loses legs to illegal alien

    Well than-you to everyone who hounded this paper to print the truth. This is a good thing we need to keep posting comments and getting these stories to the public at large.









    Immigration hold placed on driver in injury crash
    Victim lost both legs from crash; husband founded Napa's Minuteman chapter

    Federal immigration officials have asked that Napa authorities hold without bail the man charged with felony DUI and hit and run in an east Napa accident that resulted in the amputation of a woman’s legs above the knee.

    Francisco Pacheco, 24, is in Napa County jail on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold. ICE seeks holds on criminal suspects who the agency believes may be in the United States illegally. Such holds may result in deportation.
    On Feb., 3, Pacheco, who was intoxicated, was driving his 1990 Plymouth on South Terrace Drive when he plowed into the back of Lilian Clark’s vehicle, which was doubled-parked.

    Clark, 38, had just finished securing her two sons, 4 and 6, in their car seats and was walking around the back of her car to get to the driver’s door. Pacheco hit the rear bumper of Clark’s car, pinning her legs between her bumper and his front bumper.

    Pacheco, who is on probation for a 2007 DUI conviction, fled. He was chased by Clark’s neighbors, who found him about a block away and held him until police arrived.

    In addition to the current charges and the 2007 DUI conviction, Pacheco was picked up last July for misdemeanor DUI. That case is pending, according to Napa County Chief Deputy District Attorney John Goold.

    Pacheco had no insurance and does not have a valid driver’s license.

    If found guilty of the charges from Sunday’s incident, Pacheco is looking at a maximum of six years in state prison, Goold said.

    John Clark, the husband of the victim, has been active in the movement to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.

    In 2006, Clark started a Napa-based chapter of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, a group that has observed border patrols and advocated more strict enforcement of immigration laws. He said his inspiration to form the group stemmed from the three-year effort he went through to legally bring Lilian, then his fiance, to the United States from her native Chile.

    “I am passionate about people coming to this country legally. I certainly learned that with the battles I fought to bring Lili here,

    Now we know who to blame for sanctuary policies. Or his boss???

    They should have checked with ICE and had him deported last year.

    Wow, so he already had 2 similar run-ins with the law before he was flagged for ICE detention / potential deportation. So, I guess the lesson to take away from this series of events is that 2 DUIs for an IA is insufficient to warrant a serious look into a perp's background. First, someone must suffer serious bodily harm and THEN, the investigation/deportation process kicks-in.


    I'm glad the bystanders acted quickly to hold this guy until LE arrived.
