The hit and run deaths of Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, age 6, and Abigail Robinson, age 11, both residents of Forest Grove, Oregon on Sunday, October 20, 2013 deeply affected my views on the public safety of Washington County residents; the girls untimely deaths causing me to do some in-depth research into the number of foreign nationals charged or convicted of driving crimes in Washington County in 2013.

Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, the alleged killer of the two little girls, a 19-year old Mexican national woman, is currently incarcerated at the Washington County Jail where she has been charged with two counts of felony hit and run.

The preceding 12 months of statistics combined reveal the extent of foreign national crime in the county, the clear focus of this chronicle driving crimes:

Hopefully it didn’t take the deaths of two little girls on October 21, 2013 to wake up Washington County’s elected and non elected officials in state, county and local government, partially those in law enforcement, to the fact that driving crimes committed by foreign nationals should be considered a significant public safety threat to all the residents of the county.

Washington County’s elected and non elected officials should work together, setting aside any pretense of political correctness, to empower state, county and local law enforcement’s ability to keep those illegally present in the state from driving on the county’s freeways, roads and streets; because the driving crimes being committed by alien drivers are indiscriminant of a county resident’s race, religion, nationality or country of origin.
