As if you didn’t already realize it, the crisis of illegal alien criminal activity is more than out of control. The Obama administration simply looks the other way as violent crimes continue to occur. Illegal aliens who commit crimes (additional crimes, that is) aren’t being deported, and if they are, the security is so lax, that they just come right back. Take at look at the latet crime that wasn’t worth Obama’s time.
Imagine an illegal alien who is drunk and drag racing down a street. He loses control of his car, hits another car, and kills the woman inside. Well, you don’t have to imagine too much, because the event really happened. The victim was 21-year-old Sara Root. The part that seems too hard to imagine is what happened next.
As reported by Fox News, the driver, Edwin Mejia, “wasn’t detained by immigration officials because his offense did ‘not constitute a crime of violence,’ the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said in a March letter to Congress.”
“Mr. Mejia should not need to be on this list – he should be in jail,” Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., said in a March 30 statement. “ICE originally said that Mr. Mejia was not an ‘enforcement priority,’ but this morning he was placed on their Most Wanted list. The public still does not have a complete account of what went wrong.”
Sasse has been pressing for answers since his office issued a Feb. 29 letter to ICE Director Sarah Saldana. He called Saldana’s eventual response “bureaucratic nonsense” and wrote to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on April 4 seeking a response that was not “an embarrassment to the hardworking men and women” at DHS.
And, of course, this is not an isolated incident of criminal activity being ignored or disregarded. Here’s one that’s even worse. Four illegal aliens have been charged with raping a woman and beating her boyfriend, and two of those people had already been deported in the past! With no security at the borders, is it any wonder illegal alien criminals can come back and commit more crimes?
Four illegal aliens from Guatemala are charged in the rape of a Massachusetts woman and the vicious beating of her boyfriend, and one of the suspects was arrested less than a month before the attack — but he was not reported to immigration authorities.
Federal immigration officials have requested detainers on Elmer Diaz, 19, Ariel Diaz, 24, Adan Diaz, 32, and Marlon Josue Jarquin-Felipe, 27, following their arrests in the March 13 incident in Framingham, The Boston Herald reported. The three Diaz men are brothers.
Adan had previously been arrested for drunken driving on Feb. 22 and Ariel was arrested for drunken driving in December, but immigration officials told The Herald they were never made aware that either was in custody. Ariel was also convicted of drunken driving and disorderly conduct and sent back to Guatemala in May 2014, but he re-entered the U.S. at some point, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Shawn Neudauer told The Herald. Jarquin-Felipe was also deported to Guatemala in 2014, but managed to again cross the border to the U.S. undetected.

This is the current state of affairs we deal with by having a pourous border and an administration not willing to enforce exisiting laws. What’s even more pathetic is that whenever someone like Ted Cruz or Donald Trump speak about the need for additional border security, they are the ones who are criticized by the media and Obama’s followers.
Do we really want criminals coming into our country? Do we want thieves and rapists? And what about the terrorists? If its so easy to enter and reenter the country illegally, don’t you think the terrorists know this and are exploiting it?
How many more crimes need to be committed before something is done? How many terrorist attacks are we setting ourselves up for? America deserves better than this. We deserve to be protected from people who would do us harm. And the first SIMPLE and LOGICAL step is to secure our borders. It’s not racist. It’s common sense.
