Cindy Tracy is not impressed with proposed legislation from Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., that would make a third conviction for driving while intoxicated a deportable offense for an immigrant.

The man accused of killing her 16-year-old daughter, Kelly, in a November car crash in Gilbert had one prior DUI conviction. He admitted to police that he had been in the country illegally for 14 years.

“Three is way too many,” said Tracy, whose 17-year-old son was also injured in the crash near Guadalupe and Sossaman roads as he and Kelly were on their way to the Gilbert Days Parade as part of Highland High School’s marching band.

“You’re just waiting for him to kill someone or lots of someones,” Tracy said. “It doesn’t take much to kill a person in a car. It’s a weapon if you’re a drunk. I think three strikes and you’re out is way too lenient.”
