Legislators wisely reject silly California DUI law to deport illegal immigrants who are convicted of a California DUI

The state assembly public safety committee yesterday voted five to two against "Sara's Law," California DUI Law Proposal # AB 1882.

Sara's California DUI Law is aimed at deporting illegal immigrants who commit California DUI / drunk driving offenses.

It was named after Sara Cole, the Los Gatos mother who was seriously injured last year when she was run down by Lucio Rodriguez, a repeat California DUI / drunk driver.

Rodriguez, who is an illegal immigrant, is now serving a five-year California DUI sentence in California DUI state prison. The California DUI bill's sponsor, Assemblyman Martin Garrick of San Diego, says he will re-introduce Sara's California DUI Law next year.
