On July Fourth, Immigrants Remind Us of the Value of Freedom
Independence Day celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, unifying the colonies and freeing the colonists from the rule of King George III.
Immigrants remind us daily of the freedom and opportunity that America offers. They bring with them new ideas, skills and an entrepreneurial spirit that makes the country stronger.

The Fourth of July is one of our great nation’s favorite national holidays, even though it has become more of a day of recreation, rather than one of commemoration. Therefore, if you participate on the celebrations, make sure you don’t drink and drive,” reminds everyone Accident Attorney Hector Sandoval
In Texas, drunk driving is responsible for 100s of deaths on the road annually. As in most states, Texas’ LBAL (or legal blood alcohol limit) for those operating vehicles is 0.08%. Unfortunately, some Texans still get behind the wheel even when they have been drinking. This is one of the most preventable causes of traffic accidents.

Many undocumented immigrants are under the mistaken impression that their legal status means they’re not entitled to protection under US laws. Nothing could be further from the truth. Undocumented immigrants have the same legal options in the case of an accident as any legal resident. They can sue and seek restitution in US courts, and get justice when they’re hurt in an accident.
