President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been increasingly less careful with the people they catch and release into the country. Their lack of investigative prowess has been astonishing, even leaving other alphabet agencies like the FBI, DEA, and CIA scratching their head.
One of their most recently identified cases came back in July 2021. An unnamed man from Brazil was caught in San Luis, Arizona after illegally crossing the border. Apprehended by DHS, he was placed under arrest and held for processing. Just a month later, he was released without bond or monitoring. He was told he would need to appear for a hearing with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. He failed to show up for that hearing (surprise, surprise).
In July 2021, the criminal court of Mogi Das Cruzes, in Sao Paulo, Brazil started seeking his extradition. They accused him of committing felonious homicide. Not just any homicide either, this was the murder of a child under 14.
For over 2 years, he would elude DHS as well as Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) until October 18th. Picked up by the Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arm of Boston, MA’s ICE unit, they charged him with numerous federal immigration violations. He will be held by ERO Boston until he is ready for deportation.
ERO is described by ICE as a system with very separate channels. “ERO conducts removals of individuals without a lawful basis to remain in the United States, including at the order of immigration judges with the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). EOIR is a separate entity from DHS and ICE. Immigration judges in these courts make decisions based on the merits of each individual case, determining if a noncitizen is subject to a final order of removal or eligible for certain forms of relief from removal.”
The numbers reported by ICE for ERO are surprisingly low for how many illegals flood our borders. According to ICE, in FY22 they picked up 46,396 illegals with criminal histories. In total, they had just over 198K charges and convictions. Of that 21,531 assaults, 8,164 sexual crimes, 5,554 weapons charges, 1,501 homicides, and 1,114 kidnapping charges. Needless to say, they only pick up an average over just over 10 illegals per day. Not doing their job.
With ERO not doing an effective job in sending criminals home, or DHS and ICE being unsuccessful at preventing them from entry something needs to change.
As Biden refuses to fund them or provide assistance by policy to send these illegals home, he has been flooding the country with the trash of other nations.
I’m not going to lie to you. There are some who come to this country to earn more and send some home. They come to exploit employers looking to pay criminal wages, and they are willing to take it because it’s STILL more than they would have at home. The horrific squalor many of them subject themselves to to make it work is incredible.
That being said, if you knew 3 snakes in a box of 100 were venomous, you wouldn’t just stick your hand blindly in the box, would you? The same principle applies here. We need to take the blinders off our immigration officials. The handcuffs need to be removed, and they need to complete their missions.
Coming here illegally and getting caught needs to be met with real punishment. Not coddling to appease the masses with our humanity and compassion. There is a degree of understanding for specific situations that the US previously had. That time however has run its course. It is over and now we are at the stage where the American people need to start shoring up our borders and watching who we are letting in.
In decades past, when someone left their country, and especially their continent, their aggressors didn’t give chase. If they crossed over, more often than not, what had happened was forgotten about. Now, we get the aggressor coming here, and showing no respect for our country. They bring their criminal and murderous ways to the American shores, and we get stuck dealing with it.
