Re: “Arkansas legislator tied to fatal bus crash in Louisiana

An open letter to any politician involved in this senseless tragedy:

I am the mother of the firefighter HERO that was killed on August 28, 2016. If you didn't know, two other men were also killed in this accident, two other firemen were severely hurt, mentally and physically and many of the illegal people you hired were hurt. I don’t expect any kind of response or explanation from you, you can save it for when you meet your maker and explain it to him, but for now I do have questions that you can think about and answer to yourself:

1. Was it worth being so greedy that you could not find hard working American citizens who needed jobs and would be willing to go into this disaster area to do this kind of work?
2. Did your government contracts not require you to hire people in the same manner that most businesses use by asking for a copy of a persons driver's license, birth certificate, social security card, etc. I know in order for me to get a job in this country, the company wants to know a little about me before I am hired. You are responsible for the people you hire.
3. Many of the illegal immigrants on the bus were injured and taken to our hospitals and treated for their injuries. I would like to know who will pay their medical bills, will it be paid with my tax dollars that are collected from me because I am a legal U.S. citizen?
4. Why is it when so many people get elected to public office they change from being good people who want to help into people who become evil and decide that they will change and create laws that will benefit themselves and forget about the people that they are there to serve?

I could go on with many more questions, but instead I will leave you with some facts that exist now because of your poor actions and decisions:
1. Two beautiful children and an amazing wife and mother no longer have their daddy and husband around. Instead they have pictures of this HERO to comfort them.
2. Two great HERO firemen, hurt and suffering both physically and mentally, are now worried about how they will be able to support their families. If you didn't know, firemen, who risk their lives everyday, are not paid the best and usually they all have second jobs to help make ends meet. They are out there to protect and serve you, similar to what you, as an elected politician, suppose to do.
3. You have hurt our small community by taking away a model citizen who devoted his life to helping others.
You can make all the excuses for yourself if that makes YOU feel better, but your reasoning and statements mean nothing to me. You see, every dirty deed has some consequence.
I would like to see the following happened but I am not expecting it unless, just maybe, you have a conscious and a heart.

1. You come forward and take responsibility for whatever role you played in this tragedy. You provide the authorities with the information to conduct their investigation. I have complete confidence in the police and know that they will get all the answers.
2. You pay out of your government contracts the medical bills for the illegal immigrants taken to our medical facilities to be treated. We didn’t seek them out and ask them to come to our country, you did.

And finally, my hopes and prayers are that this country will wake up and stop greedy politicians that think they are above the law, that people will remember the words “one nation under God”. These greedy politicians knew these people were illegal immigrants and used them to profit from natural disasters. They should be held responsible for this tragedy.
I pray that God will lead you to do what is right.

To all my family and friends, please feel free to share.
