Illegal immigrant leaves blood on the streets of Omaha

On Sunday morning, June 22, 2014, Edward Horowitz, M.D. was crossing with the green light at 38th Street and Dodge, in Omaha, Nebraska.  Out of nowhere came a speeding blue car, which struck Horowitz hard with such a “horrific bang” that he was thrown against the window of a U-Hall van stopped for the red light.  He later died.

The woman driving the U-Haul became hysterical.  A witness said a blue car hit Dr. Horowitz while he was walking in the crosswalk.  The driver of the car that hit Dr. Horowitz then sped off.

The driver and a passenger abandoned the vehicle and ran off, but police caught up with them.  The car was registered to Pedro Diego Antonio.  Antonio was allegedly the driver.

Later, “[p]olice say Pedro Diego Antonio … was arrested … on motor vehicle homicide charges. ... Prosecutors say Pedro was three times over the legal limit when arrested.”

What do we know about Dr. Horowitz?  Creighton University released a statement the Monday afternoon after he was struck dead:

[The] School of Medicine mourns the unexpected loss of Edward Horowitz, M.D.

Horowitz was a passionate educator and, as such, has touched the lives of countless medical students during his tenure at Creighton University. His loss weighs heavy on the hearts of faculty, staff and students within the medical school and across the campus[.] … Horowitz, born in Los Angeles in 1950, started a nearly four decades-long career at Creighton as a medical student.

What do we know about Pedro Diego Antonio?  Not much.

Police identified the driver as 31-year-old Pedro Diego-Antonio, born in Guatemala. Diego-Antonio was booked into Douglas County Corrections at 8:04 p.m. on counts of felony DUI causing serious bodily injury, leaving the scene of an injury accident and felony motor vehicle homicide.

According to KEYV-Omaha:

Diego-Antonio’s license is under revocation. He received a DUI in 2011 and two driving under suspension citations in 2014, including one on June 11, eleven days before he struck Dr, Horowitz.

Nor have authorities answered how Diego Antonio got a driver’s license in the first place.  He is an illegal immigrant.  All we know is what Emily Szink knows.  She writes for KMTV News:

The state believes that Pedro Diego Antonio … is a flight risk so bond was set at $300,000[.] … Right now Immigration and Customs Enforcement has a hold on him.

Omaha, Nebraska is in the middle of the country, where clouds billow over the hills and prairies and the indifferent sparrows skirt from one bush to another.  Omaha is far away from the southern border.  How can Omaha have an illegal immigration problem, too?

Well, the chickens must be slaughtered in Fremont, Nebraska.  Mutual of Omaha needs its offices cleaned and its lawns cut and green.  The Democratic Party needs voters, and the Catholic Church needs to fill its pews.  Illegal immigration is the answer to all these needs.  And who pays?  Dr. Horowitz paid with his life – that’s who.

One Omaha responder to the WOTV news story writes:

Truthfully, Omaha employers bring and maintain undocumented workers. I worked at Mutual of Omaha and their cleaning staff had some who were undocumented…one told me she bought a Social Security card in South O. Her son lives in Mexico but she can't return to get him because she won't be able to get back into the US.

It does little good to draw a line from blood in the street at 38th and Dodge in Omaha to the state legislature in Lincoln, then on to the U.S. Congress.  They all are part of the rampant immigration lawlessness that contributed to the death of a good man.  They will just look the other way, turn the newspaper page at breakfast, and pour another cup of coffee.  Some shake their heads and wonder what Donald Trump is up to.

Omaha.com notes:

On Wednesday, April 22, 2015, Douglas County District Judge Shelly Stratman sentenced Diego-Antonio to 35 to 40 years in prison. Under state laws that cut most sentences in half, Diego-Antonio, 31, will serve 17½ to 20 years in prison. He then will be deported to Guatemala, where he has a wife and a child, prosecutors say.

Imagine that.  Deported to Guatemala after serving about 20 years in prison.  Another illegal alien, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who confessed to murdering Kathryn Steinle on the streets of San Francisco, was deported five times, yet he managed to return to the United States and commit murder.

Meanwhile, thousands of illegal aliens still flood into the country from our southern border.  They bring north disease, drugs, and little regard for good men who do the right thing.  Omaha has become a border city, where the inconvenient truth about the horrors of illegal immigration is ignored.
