School Bus Fatal Crash Caused by Illegal Alien

(Minneota, Minnesota) A 23-year-old local woman, Alianiss Nunez Morales, has been charged with four counts of criminal vehicular homicide for last Tuesday's crash into a school bus that resulted in the deaths of four children.

Morales was also charged with a stop sign violation and driving without a valid license.

In a new twist, sources now are saying that Morales is an illegal alien using an alias.
[I]n court, the Lyon County attorney said federal immigration agents have determined that the real Alianiss Morales is from Puerto Rico where agents questioned her grandparents. They told them the woman arrested for causing the Cottonwood bus crash is not their granddaughter.

The suspect sat quietly in court on a wheelchair and told the judge, through an interpreter, that her real name was Alianiss Nunez Morales. A claim that federal immigration agents dispute.

Claude Arnold of U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement said, "Yesterday, our agents developed probable cause that Ms. Nunez-Morales is in the country illegally and that that is not her true identity."
According to the county attorney, Morales has "sketchy" ties to the community and has resided in Minnesota for no more than a month, therefore, she is considered an "extreme flight risk." She has a court appearance scheduled for April.

Olga Franco (aka Alianiss Morales) was sentenced to 12 and one-half years in prison after being convicted by a jury.
