Clark County Catastrophe: The Human Cost of Biden's Lax Immigration Policies
Illegal Migrant caused fatal bus accident in Ohio
On what should have been a joyous first day of school, a devastating tragedy unfolded in Clark County, Ohio, exposing the far-reaching consequences of Joe Biden's immigration policies, even in small rural communities. A young child, Aiden Clark, was killed, another critically injured and left without an arm, and 26 other children were injured when a school bus was struck by a Honda Odyssey. The driver of the Odyssey, Hermanio Joseph, a 35-year-old immigrant of Haitian descent, has been charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide.
Joseph was driving left of center on State Route 41 when he collided head-on with the school bus, forcing it off the road and down an embankment, where it overturned. The tragedy is compounded by the fact that Joseph was driving without a valid form of identification. He produced an Ohio Identification Card and a Mexican Driver's License, both of which law enforcement deemed invalid "due to his immigration status."
New information has been uncovered by Breitbart News, confirming that Joseph is a Haitian citizen who entered the U.S. through the Mexico border in August of last year. After receiving a Notice to Appear from the Department of Homeland Security, he was released into the interior of the U.S., eventually making his way to Ohio. An advisory board member from the National Immigration Center for Enforcement (NICE) has attributed Joseph's presence in the U.S. to the Biden administration's expansive Catch and Release policies at the border.
Further solidifying the case, it has also been confirmed that Joseph is indeed an illegal immigrant, and an ICE detainer has been set for him. This new information underscores the urgency of the disaster on our southern border, which allowed Joseph to be in Ohio in the first place.
The fatal crash in Clark County, Ohio, exposes the dire consequences of the Biden administration's lax immigration policies, even in small, rural communities. The death of young Aiden Clark is a grim outcome of a system that allows individuals without proper documentation to drive, putting everyone at risk. This tragedy amplifies a broader pattern of negligence and lack of accountability from the Biden administration, demanding immediate reform in immigration and licensing policies to safeguard our communities and honor Aiden Clark's memory. Anything less betrays the trust and safety of the American people.
