Illegal criminal aliens get released to US cities and towns
So, an illegal alien comes into your home and assaults and robs you. Worse, they rape and murder your family. Good thing is they get caught and go to jail, right? Even better, they get deported back to their original county. Not so fast.
Some countries won’t take back their citizens after they’ve commited crimes. The criminals get released back to the streets in our cities and town only to commit more crimes. Fox News reports:
Long after they were ordered out of the country, thousands of criminal aliens from places like China, Cuba, Vietnam and Pakistan remain free in the United States to commit new crimes because their home countries refuse to take them back.
For years, this unique problem percolated under the political radar. But recent crimes by immigrant felons have lawmakers scrambling to punish nations that refuse to repatriate their own citizens. The Obama administration and many Democrats in Congress, however, are blocking punitive legislation, preferring to let the State Department handle the issue diplomatically.
Here are some examples of what I’m talking about here. Via FoxNews.com
The issue recently came to Poe’s attention after three especially heinous crimes were committed by men ordered deported years ago.
In June, a judge sentenced 22-year-old Shafiqul Islam, a Bangladeshi national, for the murder of 73-year-old Lois Decker.
“This man was a dangerous criminal,” said Hudson New York District Attorney Paul Czajka. “He should not have been in the United States. At the very least, he should have been in detention.”
Islam murdered Decker after serving a year for sexually assaulting a child. After his release from prison, a judge ordered Islam deported.
Bangladesh, however, refused to take him back. Because of the 2001 high court ruling, Islam stayed in the country.
Another example is 35-year-old Binh Thai Luc. Luc was a career thief who served an eight-year term in California state prison. A judge kicked him out of the U.S. but when Vietnam refused to take him back, he was released onto the streets of San Francisco. In March, Luc allegedly bludgeoned to death a family of five.
In Boston, a Cambodian gang member stabbed and beat 16-year-old Ashton Cline-McMurray to death with a golf club. The boy, disabled with cerebral palsy, was attacked while walking home from a football game. Originally, prosecutors charged Loeun Heng with murder, which carried a life sentence. However, in 2003 they agreed to a plea bargain, believing Heng could be deported. Last year, when he was released from prison, Cambodia refused to take him back, putting him back on the streets.
Well, here’s the bigger problem. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, is leading the charge in Congress to change the law, pushing to withhold visas to nations that refuse to take back their own. Sounds fair to me. However, the Democrats in congress won’t let it go through. They say it’s too aggressive.
We need a solution, folks. What happens when an illegal, who’s been released and goes back to the general public, commits violent crimes? What can we do? Apparently, or justice system can’t hold them forever. In fact, they can only detain them for 6 months after deportation is ordered. If the criminal’s nation of origin won’t take them back, we have to release them.
I say repeat offenders as such have no country, thus no place to go. They’re country won’t take them back and we don’t want them. We can either send them to some uninhabited island and let them fend for themselves or they can face another form of punishment.
Maybe then their countries will take them back. Either way, they’re out of our hair.
