I've seen too many people with a decades-old DUI conviction, and clean records ever since then, be placed in deportation proceedings, even though they have stable lives and work here and are supporting families and paying taxes. Deporting them does nothing but tear families apart and weaken communities.
I generally agree with this although it seems unwieldy. How do you define habitual especially for offenses committed in a foreign country. And what are the annual projected cost of enforcing this bill if passed?
I saw an immigrant friend be incarcerated for years put on a 13 year probation and be unmercifully abused by both judges and probation officers over a dui for driving down the block from bar to home. It was the most flagrant abuse of power I have ever personally witnessed.
