Christino Torres Romero admitted to being involved in the hit-and-run death of Daniel Pollack
According to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the man responsible for the hit-and-run death of Daniel Pollack, the son of Valley real estate mogul Michael Pollack, is an illegal immigrant.

Arpaio says Cristino Torres Romero was arrested in Tempe by Scottsdale police on Friday in connection with the September 11 hit-and-run.

Torres Romero, the sheriff says, is in the country illegally.


Daniel Pollack, 31, was standing in the median on Hayden Road, just north of Thomas Road, about 1:30 a.m. on September 11, when he was hit by a truck traveling south.

The driver -- alleged to be Torres Romero -- took off, and Pollack was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to court records obtained by New Times, an anonymous tip led to Torres Romero's arrest.

Torres Romero, who works at a California Pizza Kitchen restaurant in Tempe and has had the same Tempe address for the past four years, admitted to being involved in the hit-and-run, and provided police with the vehicle he was driving the night Pollack was killed.

The MSCO regularly investigates the immigration status of anyone booked into jails as part of Arpaio's "efforts to fight illegal immigration," according to a press release from the MCSO first
obtained by KTAR (the sheriff's office didn't get back to us when we requested a copy of the same press release).


The younger Pollack was vice president and a designated broker at his father's company, Michael Pollack International Management Inc.

Torres Romero was booked into jail on one count of leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

ANOTHER FRAUDULENT AMNESTY?   IT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN?

Contrary to what the open borders and special interest organization say,Mandatory E-Verify is an incredibly urgent deterrent for the American jobmarketplace, in opposition to the illegal immigration invaders. This federalenforcement program will detect illegal aliens in the workplace, will be verypotent verification process of those who being hired and lawfully here.Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas sponsored nationwide E-Verify to hold businessesaccountable, for the 8.5 Million already working amongst us. Rep. Lamar Smith's mandated E-Verify bill H.R. 2885,known as the “Legal Workforce Act" Is now ready for Congress. The American people deserve a President that upholds ourlaws, instead of bypassing Congress with Executive directives. He must beprepared to protect America from its internal enemies, and sustain the 1986Immigration laws against all entities who are pushing for wide open borders andallowing uncountable amounts of poverty-stricken--ECONOMIC--people to enterthis sovereign nation.

 

President Obama said today he cannotpass Immigration Reform on his own; it’s truly a bipartisan effort. When you disrespectour immigration laws and then come here and protest for civil right, they arejust making the law abiding populace furious—angry with the no—intentional commitmentof politicians to serve the public. Instead they have brought and sold Americafor campaign contributions. We are a sickening country with the loss of jobs, astaggering economy and a hell of a defense bill in other countries, and hundredsof billions of dollars in supporting illegal aliens.

E-Verify will spell-out to illegal aliens from every area of our world; thewelcome doormat has been withdrawn as we cannot afford them anymore. Highlyskillful immigrants should be expedited through the system, but others who arepredisposed to become public taxpayer charges must be turned away. The millionsof non-lawful immigrants will recognize they cannot enter America with impunityand that if they cannot get hired, then why smuggle their families and childrenhere who predominantly are uninsured and have no means of financial support. Theseindividuals use our own laws against us to wreak havoc with our limitedemergency health care service or clog our schools with their children, thatdon't speak English in the majority of cases. In the last few decadesthey have been fortunate to find criminal companies to employ them, but whenE-verify is enacted finding a job won’t be so easy.

 

WHEN MANDATORYE-VERIFY SYSTEM BECOMES A FEDERAL LAW, I PREDICT THAT MORE AMERICAN WORKERS OROTHER INFORMANTS WILL BECOME WHISTLE-BLOWERS AND CALLING ICE ON SUSPICIOUSBEHAVIOR, CONFIRMING ILLEGAL ALIENS. THE ICE DIVISION TO CALL IS 1-866-DHS-2ICE(866-347-2423).

 

Agents are very courteous and are inattendance to listen to your observations you have noted. They need no personalinformation other than a report, so they can make a determination on athoroughly investigating any episode. So instead of complaining on a blog,contact ICE and make   your voices known, to make a disparity in thismigration and immigration crisis. Therefore--over the years many willleave--part of the 20 million plus illegal aliens previously homesteaded here,will remain in enforcement purgatory. If you want more truthful informationit’s predicated at NumbersUSA, Judicial Watch and American Patrol, who provideinsight reporting.   The free cornucopia for foreign nationals willbe over, and we can start, including the foothold citizen babies; we supplement300.000 these pregnant mothers annually with welfare and public assistanceprograms--that even US families cannot get for free, including subsidizedhousing.

 

THIS GOES BEYONDINCOMPREHENSIBLE, when American citizensand lawful residents are not eligible and yet taxpayers forfeited money to payfor illegal alien public services. With a reduction of these illegal childrenand babies, billions of dollars can go to our warriors, our old folk andhomeless, not to criminal aliens. Illegal Immigration have been in the ballcourt of the special interest entities for years, but voters can bring this toan end in the 2012 elections. A President influenced by the TEA PARTY such asHerman Cain, Michelle Bachmann or any straight talker who will contain thespread of big government, dump the current Tax Code and begin anew. America hasbecome a nation of government regulation; not just federal, but State, countyand local, so how can any person be expected to create a new business whenburdened down with layers of laws.

 

 The propagating TEA PARTY willenforce the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform act and not dismantle it.Amnesty will not be passed or any form of Immigration reform and SanctuaryCities will become a thing of the past, that will stop Mayors and Police Chiefsfrom catering to foreign nationals. GOP Politician Rick Perry a contender forthe presidency has shown his Democratic tendencies, by giving illegal aliensacademic in-state tuition. This would be a forerunner of his future intentionsin the White house, of being soft to criminal entry.

 

 

As another thought,outside independent groups should ask Baptists, Catholics and other faith groupcongregation members separately, to enquire on their immigration stance. Unionmembers should subtly ask the same questions, but with a different approach, sothey can give an honest opinion away from prying eyes? When not beingintimidated by the church overlords and the union masters, you will certainly geta different answer.

 

NO LAWMAKER WHO ISFORESEEN AS SOFT ON IMMIGRATION IS IN FOR A HARD TIME GETTING ELECTED IN THEFUTURE.  WE NEED A PRESIDENT ANDCONGRESS, WHO RESPECTS OUR LAWS, WHO AMENDS OUR LAWS TO MAKE ENTRY INTO OURSOVEREIGN COUNTRY A FELONY. ONLY THE TEA PARTY WILL DO EVERYTHING TO SAFEGUARDOUR NATION FROM UNFETTERED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

 

Just today US District judge Blackburn in Alabama alsoupheld provisions that require schools to check the immigration status ofstudents, nullify contracts signed by illegal aliens, and makes it a felony forillegal aliens to apply for a license plate, driver's license, or businesslicense. Unlike rulings made by a federal district court and circuitcourt of appeals on Arizona’s SB1070, Judge Blackburn upheld the provision thatallows police officers to ask for proof of legal status during routine policestops.

 

Blackburn's order temporarily blocked four parts of thelaw until she can issue a final ruling. Those measures would:

•Make it a crime for an illegal immigrant to solicit work.

•Make it a crime to transport or harbor an illegalimmigrant.

•Allow discrimination lawsuits against companies thatdismiss Citizens and legal residents while hiring illegal immigrants.

•Forbid companies from taking tax deductions for wagespaid to workers who are in the country illegally.

I live in California and have almost my whole life. I remember a time, before the massive government sponsored invasion of illegal aliens. It was rare that someone who was tragically involved in a hitting someone anor killing them, would simply take off. Now this has changed. Illegal aliens do this as a matter of course. Time after time, they are involved in hit and run accidents. Most shouldn't even be driving.

Observation: All of those leftists that are cheerleaders for illegal immigration share the responsibility, everytime an innocent person is killed by one of these illegal aliens. That's right. You on the left, you open borders perverts are responsible for the deaths of thousands of people , because you know that these people will tend to run when they hit and maim or kill someone, and you futher know that they haven't been given proper driving training and so on. You people are GUILTY.

B.S. Tommy. It is not only a civic crime to hit someone and kill them while taking off after doing it, but it's a moral crime as well, and considered to be one by any civilization on earth. Knock off the platitudes.

American is broke, busted, so how can we imprudently repeat the same oldperformance of bringing in one million legal immigrants a year? How can wesubstantiate this, when we have a rising unemployment rate for averageAmericans of all races? This is not even counting the 20 million plus illegalaliens who are already here. It occurs to me and a good portion of the lawful populace,that illegal immigrants are receiving a better deal than lawful Americans. Itsbeyond most people’s comprehension that entitlements being collected by illegalaliens, were diverted to our Social Security fund, could make a difference tosenior’s life’s; the homeless, the sick, veterans and towards the U.S. Treasurydeficit.  Just take a look of Rick Perryproviding illegal alien student taxpayer tuition, when US citizens Out-of-Statemust pay full fees in Texas? Perry also disapproved of constructing the fence,which most certainly all RINO’s object to; they need those discount illegallaborers.

 

 

We deserve a President that upholds our laws, instead ofbypassing Congress with Executive directives. He must be willing to protectAmerica from its internal enemies, and sustain the 1986 Immigration lawsagainst all entities who are pushing for wide open borders and allowinguncountable amounts of poverty-stricken people to enter this sovereign nation.

 

 

Dr. Steve Camarota at the Center forImmigration Studies finds that 81% of the jobs created in Rick Perry's Texasbetween the years 2007 and 2011 went to newly-arrived immigrants. Somethingis seriously wrong here, but it will never change in the deep seated GOPmembers or the far left or Democratic leadership. The only chance of adifferent path to America's rebirth is to stifle the powerful influences ofboth political parties and their campaign contributors. The TEA PARTY has amassive growing membership with real new ideas, such as moving back educationto the states; dismantle the federal government to its original purpose as inthe living Constitution.

 

 

Scrap and draft a new fair Tax code as expressed bybusinessman Herman Cain, who is a very elegant orator and has a real plan forAmerica. Cain also promises to enforce immigration laws, build the double layerfence with no endorsement of another amnesty. I am sure TEA PARTY leading voiceof Cain would approve of is Rep.Lamar Smith's mandated E-Verify bill H.R. 2885,known as the “Legal Workforce Act." would reduce the illegal aliensstealing through our porous border. This would also cause a reduction ofnumbers cutting-back significantly on family members coming here, as ifthe illegal bread winner cannot get settled and find a job; why bother. 

 

 

E-Verify will join the highly controversial "SecureCommunities", The Halt Act (Hinder the Administration's LegalizationTemptation Act), The Save Act (The Secure America with Verification andEnforcement Act) and the 287 G police laws that are as necessary as authorized restraintagainst the decades of abandonment. Whennationwide E-verify becomes law, then it will strengthen the state laws ofArizona, Georgia, Alabama and those who want to save their states from—ECONOMIC—illegalimmigrants and migrants.

 

 

 Then we have anescalation of whistle' Blowers who are connecting with the Department ofHomeland Security (DHS)'s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division at1-866-DHS-2ICE (866-347-2423). SEE SOMETHING? DO SOMETHING? With noquestions asked about personal information, you can contact ICE and informagents about your suspicions of foreign nationals working illegally in the USA.This is a sure way to aid your fellow Americans, who cannot get a job. Yetwe have seen on many occasions unemployed Americans flocking to suddenly openjobs, where illegal aliens have been apprehended and detained by ICE.

 

 

After these lightening sweeps in northern Nevada inSeptember, ICE agents raided 11 McDonald’s restaurants and arrested dozens ofworkers. On August 30, (ICE) agents converged at a supermarket parking lot inMaywood, California. Hundreds of sweeps have been conducted, under PresidentObama's presidency, but currently these sweeps are only being orderedto--ONLY--arrest and deport criminal elements. An executive order adverse tothe US Constitution was signed allowing allegedly for people without records tobe released on the streets again.

 

 

With so many illegal aliens squatting here, we must be veryattentive in Future election cycles. It has been proven with no room for doubtthat hundreds of thousands of foreigners voted in the midterm election.Fraudulent registrations and criminals providing absentee ballots will do ourDemocracy harm and as yet the federal government has not demanded a mandatoryID identification for “Citizens” Voting. ACORN, that was supposedly disbandedand yet alive and well, under assumed business names was a mastermind incheating the system, on behalf of the Democrats.

 

We must return our country to a zero-tolerance policy, that doesn't deport justcriminals, but every person who cannot prove he has a right to live and work inthe United States. THIS IS WHY WE NEED A CONGRESS THAT WILL AMEND OURIMMIGRATION LAWS, MAKING UNLAWFUL ENTRY A STRICT FELONY.  These simple commentaries cannot hope tosupplement the information contained at NumbersUSA, Judicial Watch and Americanpatrol websites. The web contains thousands of grass root organization that canassistant you in your search for the truth, not the engineered informationpublicized by the Liberal backed press.

 

Why do Farmers and large industrial agriculturist apposeE-Verify? For years since the "Bracero program" was eliminated in1964, they have had unfettered recruitment of illegal workers; a convenient wayof hiring people to work the land. With E-Verify, every worker must be verifiedand cannot be exploited for wages, health treatments or conditions as it’salways been asserted. The agrarian community will no longer be able to drop offan injured or sick worker at the emergency room, leaving the uninsured fortaxpayers to pick up the bill.

Please stop referring to illegals as "immigrants." They are "aliens" as defined by the United States Code. (This is actually the LAW that controls immigration into the United States!) Look it up.

Bobby

Don't worry. Let them drown in their verbal cesspool. As long as you know they are illegal aliens, and have broken existing U.S. immigration law, which means logically they are going ot break dozens of other laws, that's all that matters. We need enlightened Americans, the rest of the chaff won't matter.

Is this man any more or less responsible for Pollack's death if he's described as an immigrant or an alien?

Is describing this man as an immigrant or an alien going to make Pollack live again or his family miss him any less?

Get over the rhetoric.  It's a sad situation; name calling and attempts to politicize it aren't going to change that.

Why didn't Arpaio raid CPK to arrest this illegal immigrant?

You really don't know? Because all of the open borders leftist, La Raza types would immediately be breathing down his neck. You know it, I know it, most Americans are getting to know it.

These cases, along with MCSO IA investigations, can  take 6 months - 1 year or more to investigate. 

MACE, RICO, or the MCSO's 80% cases closed by exception, not so much.

I think today's Arizona Republic reported that Torres-Romero is a criminal illegal, so there really was no need for a press release from the Flaccid Fool of MCSO.

Then again, the Old Fool wants to keep the blue hairs over in Sun City happy, so he occasionally gets his ugly mug on the TV and touts how he's the only one putting a stop to the criminal illegals and as a result, the blue hairs in Sun City will vote for him.

WRONG!! Anytime the sheriff draws attention to the damage that leftists do where illegal immigration is concerned, is a good thing. If it informs and wakes people up to these criminals, it's a GOOD THING.

It's a sheriff/lawofficers business to talk about this stuff. What do you want him to talk about, the fact that after killing someone and running, he's a misunderstood illegal alien and should be given help? Idiot.

Any chances the police report could be posted so we can better understand what happened that night?
