Exclusive: America’s Most Forgotten: The Victims of Illegal Alien Crime – Frankie Brooks

by CAROLYN COOKE, AMERICA’S MOST FORGOTTEN: THE VICTIMS OF ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIME June 17, 2009
Editor’s note: This is the next in a continuing series about the forgotten victims of illegal alien crime – weekly stories you do not see in the mainstream media.
 
America’s Most Forgotten is dedicated to the all of the innocent people and their families who have been victimized by illegal aliens as a result of the refusal of our elected officials to enforce United States immigration law and to secure our borders. Americans remain unprotected from this unwanted invasion of unidentified people from across the world. No region of the country has been spared and the citizens presented come from all walks of life. Crisscrossing the nation, we have a star athlete from a predominantly African-American neighborhood in LA, then we skip to an affluent, successful actress in New York City and then to a rural Mississippi family hoping to escape big city crime and then to a Native American in small town Idaho. And on, and on, and on...
 
Mississippi – Frankie “Blue Eyes” Brooks
 
Five-year-old Frankie died after being hit by a speeding SUV allegedly driven by an intoxicated illegal alien who fled the scene of the crime in rural Mississippi.
 
On the morning of May 24, 2008, five-year-old Frank Brooks, “Frankie Blue Eyes,” died in his mother’s arms just steps away from their home in rural Tate County, Mississippi. Frankie and his brother Drew and his sister Penelope were mud-sliding in their front yard after a rainy day. Penelope’s sneaker was stuck in the mire by the side of the road. Frankie ran to retrieve the shoe for his sister. The driver of a Ford Excursion SUV, racing down the highway struck the little boy. Drew and Penelope watched in horror. Later they recounted that Frankie was standing on the lawn, not in the street. The driver did not stop to help this innocent child but instead sped away from the scene of the crime. He had been drinking. Later the SUV veered off of the road, striking a tree. The man charged with the death of “Frankie Blue Eyes” was Jaime A. Perez, an illegal alien.
 
Little Frank’s mom, Frankie, held her son. “He had blood coming out his ears. Eyes still open. He didn’t have time to blink or hurt…and…it was over, like, that fast,” she recounted in an interview with Eyewitness News.
 
Described as an “adorable little guy, with a mischievous, good humored grin”, Frankie’s bright blue eyes prompted a teacher, Mrs. Greer, to nickname him, “Frankie Blue Eyes.” He wanted to be a firefighter or an astronaut when he grew up. Some of his favorite things included swimming, jumping on a trampoline and going to the park to skate.
 
A special little boy, Frankie was clearly the “apple of the Brooks’ family’s eyes.” In an excerpt from the eulogy, written by his mom, “He had his parents, grandparents and brother and sister wrapped around his finger. One day will not pass that I will not think of the joy he brought to the world.”
 
The author of “Tears for Frankie Blue Eyes”, C.J. Graham, interviewed the heart-broken family. Frankie loved to hang out with his big brother, Drew. Drew, 13 years old, would wrestle with Frank “to make sure he was tough enough to protect himself when he grew up.”  Penelope, 10 years old, would read to him. They had fun making crafts together.
 
Frankie inherited his beautiful blue eyes from his grandfather, Frank, an army veteran. His grandparents had moved from Florida to take care of the children while his mother worked as an accountant.
 
The family is devastated. Mrs. Brooks said in the interview, “My mother cries daily. My son is not sleeping at night anymore. My daughter is higher strung and is in constant need of affection. We feel like the walking dead…This child made people that happy.”
 
When asked how she is coping, Frankie Brooks replied, “Truthfully, I basically have no will to live anymore; I am just going through the motions dealing with work and trying to be strong for my family. I only see an unhappy life for the rest of my life.”
 
Ironically, little Frank’s mother moved her family from Memphis, Tennessee, to Mississippi to get away from the crime of a big city. They lived on a rural country road. Mistakenly, she believed they would be safe.
 
Perez was charged with leaving the scene an accident involving serious injury or death, DUI and driving without a license. He had a Tennessee identification card, Mexican documents and multiple social security cards. He is being held without bail in the Tate County jail.
 
The states must pass laws to protect their citizens as a result of the federal government’s abrogation of its duty. Since the election of Barack Obama, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been weakening the interior enforcement of immigration laws.
 
In the 2009 session of the legislature, six bills were introduced to deal with the illegal alien invasion of Mississippi. If they had been voted out of committee and allowed an “up or down” vote by both houses of the legislature, they might have passed and been signed into law by Gov. Haley Barbour. Enforcing immigration law in Mississippi would go a long way to preventing more unnecessary deaths and the collateral damage they cause to American families at the hands of those who have no right to be in this country.
