Now we have the father of that same boy getting arrested in Lexington, KY on charges not related to the murder. But they are related to his status as an immigrant.
Slain boy's father arrested on an unrelated charge
César Aguilar, the father of the 4-year-old boy whose body was found in a garbage truck last month, was arrested yesterday in Lexington on charges unrelated to his son's death.
Aguilar is being held at the Lexington-Fayette County Detention Center on possession of a forged instrument, a class D felony, and several traffic violations.
Federal immigration authorities also placed a hold on Aguilar at the jail, according to jail records.
The story then mentions funeral arrangements and how this poor man may not be able to attend. *sniffle* Please excuse me while I get a tissue.
Aguilar was booked into the jail under the name Carlos Contreras-Salazar. Family members say his birth name was César Aguilar, said Christopher 2X, a community activist and spokesman for the family.
Aguilar is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges at 12:30 p.m. today.
Lexington Police pulled him over about noon yesterday at New Circle and Leestown roads. Police found he was driving without a license, insurance or current registration plates, according to jail records.
His vehicle also had no windshield wipers, which carries a charge of driving with obstructed vision.
Under his picture the caption reads: "César Aguilar was being held on possession of a forged instrument." I am purely speculating here but I assume that means he had false identification. So chances are that this guy is in the country illegally. Driving without a driver's license. No insurance. Expired tags. False I.D. Great. Just great. This family is turning out to be a bunch of fine upstanding citizens.
Hopefully both the mother and father will face consequences for their actions. In my opinion, the mother should be deported as soon as the police are able to get enough information to convict her son's murder. The father should spend time in jail for all of the charges he is currently facing. Then, as soon as he is done with that, boot his ass out of the country.
If you want to come here and be a part of the greatest country in the world, do it the right way. Follow the rules and wait your turn like millions have before you. If you choose to break the law and come to, or remain in, this country illegally I will have no sympathy for you. Hasta la vista. Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.
