Welcome to bizarro world AKA right now in America where illegals receive a get out of jail free card if their home country refuses to take them back.
Based on a 2001 Supreme Court decision, U.S. immigration officials are only allowed to hold someone for six months after their incarceration. If the immigrant’s home country refuses to take back their national, the U.S. is required to let them walk — no matter what crime they have committed.
While some lawmakers are attempting to correct the problem by punishing nations that won’t take back their own criminals, the Obama administration and several Democrats in Congress are blocking punitive legislation, advocating that the State Department handle the issue through diplomatic measures.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) wants to change the law to include the withholding of visas to countries that refuse to take back their nationals.
…Poe says there were three particularly gruesome crimes committed by illegal aliens that brought the issue to his attention:
In June, a judge sentenced 22-year-old Shafiqul Islam from Bangladesh for the murder of 73-year-old Lois Decker. Before murdering Decker, Islam served a year in prison for sexually assaulting a child. After his release from prison, a judge ordered Islam be deported, however, Bangladesh would not take him back. So he remained in the United States and went on to kill a U.S. citizen.
Binh Thai Luc, 35, was a career criminal who spent eight years in a California prison when a judge ruled he be deported. Vietnam refused to take him back, so he was released onto the streets of San Francisco. He would go on to allegedly bludgeon to death a family of five in March of 2012.
In Boston, a Cambodian thug stabbed and beat 16-year-old Ashton Cline-McMurray to death with a golf club. The boy suffered from cerebral palsy and was attacked while on his way home from a football game. After striking a plea deal in 2003, Loeun Heng was supposed to be deported last year following his release from prison. Instead, his country refused to take him back and he was cut loose in the U.S. He remains free.
…Poe argues that the State Department already retains the power to withhold visas from offending nations but has only used it once in 2005 against the small country of Guyana, who then agreed to take back its 100 citizens. His current bill in committee would make the sanctions mandatory.
Why go through all of that? Why not handcuff and blindfold these animals, sneak them back into their home countries, and drop them off, preferably in the backyard of a prominent politician in that country? Do that 2-3 times and every nation will agree to take its illegals back. Is that a ridiculous idea? More ridiculous than releasing these dangerous criminals here in America, where they’re not even legally allowed to be in the first place? These nations are allowing us to be used as a dumping ground for their criminals and it is a big deal. If you say it’s not, tell it to that family of five that was bludgeoned to death by a criminal who should have never been in this country in the first place.
