Here’s a great first entry in our lineup of immigrants who do the jobs Americans just won’t do: Khusen Akhmedov. His family came from Russia about 10 years ago and settled in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, presumably to do all those jobs the famously lazy Amish won’t take. And he’s been a busy boy: just since 2009 he’s had 9 traffic violations, including driving on a revoked license. But being a hard-working immigrant, he has other accomplishments, including being charged with defrauding Medicare.
Apparently, in all the times he’s been in and out of police stations and courtrooms to face all these charges, it has never occurred to anyone to say, “You know, maybe America doesn’t really need any more chronic lawbreakers. Let’s politely show this guy the door.” No, that would be rude. So Mr. Akhmedov was repeatedly sent back out to pursue his personal interpretation of the American Dream, drag racing on public streets — at high speed right into pedestrian Samara Banks, 28, who is now deceased along with her three youngest children, aged 7 months to four years. Her 5-year-old son survived to grow up without a mother, thanks to this Dreamer and our refusal to think rationally about immigration.
