Judicial Watch files lawsuit for Homeland Security documents
A watchdog group is suing the Department of Homeland Security in the case of a man accused of killing a nun from Richmond in a drunk driving accident.
Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for documents relating to the case of 23-year old Carlos Montano.
The organization, on its website, said it wants to know why the federal government allowed a repeat criminal offender, in the country illegally and scheduled to be deported, to roam free for nearly two years.
In an accident on August 1st, police say, Montano drove drunk and smashed head-on into a car carrying Sister Denis Mosier, killing her. Sisters Charlotte Lange and Connie Ruth were seriously hurt. All three worked at St. Gertrude’s school.
The wreck resulted in Montano’s third DUI charge. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano ordered an investigation the day after the accident. The results, Judicial Watch said, have never been made public in spite of Freedom of Information Act requests.
Montano entered the U.S. illegally as a child from Bolivia.
