    Wow, Vince should really think about the families involved here and the lives that were changed in the blink of eye before he say’s something as “STUPID” as that!
    A young woman lost her life and her three children lost there mother, there lives will be forever changed and in the end did it matter if she was illegal or not? And NO she was’nt! Next time maybe Vince should “THINK BEFORE HE SPEAKS” or Types!

    It does make a difference is she was illegal or not. If she was illegal she should have never been here and this would not have happened. Thank god I do not live in “NorWATTS”
