While the idiots in charge of the Department of Homeland Security stick their fingers in their ears and yell, "Our borders are secure," criminals from other nations cross our borders with little or no government interference to wreck havoc on Americans. In 2009, nearly a thousand dangerous illegal aliens were released into our communities from jails and correctional facilities without any intervention by federal authorities to deport them.
(CNSNews.com) - Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) failed to identify more than 800 criminal alien convicts eligible for deportation before they were released from U.S. prisons, including “many” of “the most egregious criminal aliens, who pose a significant pubic safety risk,” according to a report by the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
According to the report , released on Feb. 4, ICE’s Criminal Alien Program, or CAP, “is responsible for identifying criminal aliens incarcerated in federal, state, and local prisons and jails who are eligible for removal from the United States.”
Actually, the way that DHS runs our borders, it doesn't make much of a difference whether or not they're deported, but more on that later.
In fiscal year 2009, CAP failed to identify 890 criminal aliens eligible for removal from the United States, according to the report. These criminals had been incarcerated in facilities in Texas and California and were released back into U.S. society.
A criminal alien eligible for removal is a person who is in the United States illegally and is subsequently convicted of a crime or was a legal permanent residents convicted of a removable offense, such as murder and other felonies.
ICE agents “do not always record and retain critical information and documentation used to determine the status of foreign-born inmates incarcerated in federal and state prisons,” the report stated. “This is because ICE procedures do not require agents to record and retain such information.”
“As a result, ICE is unable to provide assurance that its [Criminal Alien Program] agents are screening all potentially removable foreign-born inmates incarcerated in federal and state correctional facilities,” the report continued.
According to the IG report, the screening under the criminal alien removal program refers to “electronic records check and interview that [ICE] agents may conduct to determine if a foreign-born inmate is removable.”
[...] “ICE estimates that 300,000 to 450,000 criminal aliens who are eligible for removal are detained each year at federal, state, and local correctional facilities,” the IG report stated.
Last October I posted here on Vital Signs Blog about Jose Lopez Madrigal, a Mexican citizen who had recently arrested for raping a young, "slightly disabled" woman in Edmonds, Washington.
I pointed out that, "Once investigators worked their way through Madrigal's 30 aliases, they discovered he had an incredible criminal record dating back to 1989 and ranging all over the western part of the United States. His previous crimes have included theft, theft using a firearm, several drug and drug sales crimes, and sexual assault.
So why isn't he behind bars? Well, in part it's because judges have decided to deport him rather than jail him. But with the laughable security measures of our borders, Madrigal just comes back whenever he feels like it to prey on American citizens again.
Jose Lopez Madrigal has been deported from the U.S. back to Mexico...get ready...9 times!
It's hardly surprising that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement refuses to comment on the case.
Reason is the ultimate judge of what is true, and therefore of what is right, and what is good (what is legal and what is ethical). Freedom consists of obedience to the laws that conform to the knowledge discovered by reason.
After executing Louis VIV in 1793, the French promoted "reason" as their standard for governing, even honoring a "Goddess of Reason" - it lead to the Reign of Terror and slaughter. Apparently the slaughter of American citizens on our own soil by foreign nationals is of no concern to the US government.
Mario Montalban-Ramirez, 61, was convicted of manslaughter in Illinois in 1982, convicted of murder in Texas in 1984 and sent back to his native Mexico three times -- in 1996, 1997 and 2003 -- for being in the United States illegally. He also has been a frequent customer in local jails, locked up for such offenses as DWI, theft, assault and being a fugitive from justice.
This is beyond insanity. This is evil incompetence or deliberate malfeasance on behalf of liberals who worship the Goddess of Reason.
UPDATE: A romantic relationship that soured sparked a Manassas man to fatally shoot his ex-girlfriend and two other people and wound three more in a shocking spate of violence that shattered a close-knit neighborhood, authorities said Friday.
Jose Oswaldo Reyes-Alfaro, 37, a Salvadoran national who was in the country illegally, was armed with a .38-caliber revolver when he went to the Hood Road townhouse he shared with Brenda Ashcraft, 56, just after 7 p.m. Thursday, according to police and court records. After fatally shooting Ashcraft's son and wounding two other family members, including a teenage girl, he shot Ashcraft in the head as she tried to dial 911, police said.
Reyes-Alfaro then went to a house just blocks away and used the last bullet in the revolver to kill his friend Julio Cesar Ulloa, 48, court records say. Using a large knife or machete, he cut Ulloa's 77-year-old landlady in the head, the records say.
