Bernardino’s wife began to sob as soon as she saw the signs warning “sobriety checkpoint ahead.”

“They cannot do anything to us,” said Bernardino, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, as he pulled their 1997 Ford Explorer into a police checkpoint in San Pablo.

His wife knew better. They were sober, but Bernardino, who would not allow his last name to be used because of his illegal status, had no driver’s license, an offense that would cost them their car.

Every little bit helps. How'd they buy a car? Working illegally, eh? No sympathy here. Take your illegal alien butt back where you came from, and if you do it prior to being caught at a checkpoint, you get to take your car with you.

The checkpoints sort of grab up people violating the law.

Imagine that!

Funny! There were probably white's and black who went into the check point and they probably faced the same problems. Stick it up your burritos!

They wind up in the hands of law enforcement and there's good reason to believe they aren't in the country lawfully (from the cops' perspective), and all they lose is a car?

Those f-ers got off cheap.

Put them in work camps and make they work toward their food, upkeep and release. Try a 5 year on the 1st and a 10 year on the 2nd.

There are plenty of ways to get it done just the politicians are not listening. They weren't before and they aren't now.

The thing I cannot understand is that they think laws apply to everyone EXCEPT THEM. I used to know a woman (non hispanic) who lost her car and her license, I think it was because she did not have insurance. I WOULD ASK THEM IF IT WAS FAIR FOR A SINGLE, FEMALE, LEGAL, AMERICAN CITIZEN TO LOSE HER LICENSE AND CAR?

Yay! Fantastic. It's not enough that they be busted. They should be weeping too. Weeping, fear and constant apprehension. No peace for non-citizens in the US and especially illegals.

What happens to those cars? Wouldn't it be tragic if they were just winding up in the hands of other non-citizens?
