Rep Raises Alarm After Murders by Illegals Blocked from Deportation by Home Countries

William La Jeunesse, Fox News, August 13, 2012

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.

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.

“I don’t know why the State Department seems to take the side of foreign countries over our own American interest in the United States,” Poe said, urging the U.S. to tell those countries: “Look, you take these people back or the consequence is going to be no visas for your nation.”

Under a 2001 Supreme Court decision, U.S. immigration officials are only permitted to hold someone for six months after their incarceration. So when a home nation refuses to take back their national, the U.S. is required to release them—no matter what they’ve done.

Those nations with the highest numbers, in order, are: Cuba, China, India, Pakistan and Vietnam.

{snip} His [Rep. Poe’s] first bill introduced last year refused any visas—student, business or tourist—to any country that refused to repatriate their criminals. That bill went nowhere, opposed by the travel industry, the administration and Democrats in Congress

Back again in the House Immigration Subcommittee, Poe is trying again. This year, his bill only applies to visas for diplomatic staff from countries that refuse deported nationals. But many Democrats believe even that is too aggressive.

Poe says the State Department already has the discretion to withhold visas from offending nations, but used it only once in 2005 against Guyana. The country immediately took back its 100 citizens. His bill currently in committee would make the sanctions mandatory.

    “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to return to the streets to commit more crimes, safe in the knowledge that the hellholes they came from won’t allow us to send them back.”

  • Rocky Bass,

    To hell with their “native” countries, American lives are at stake! SHIP these dirtbags to any African country with a $100 bill taped to each of their necks. The Congo would welcome them with open arms and it’s far enough away they couldn’t ever walk or swim back here!

    United States Of Ameritard…………the dumping grounds of the world!!!!!!!!!

  • I thought that Vietnam had made an agreement with the US to take back its nationals who have committed crimes back in the US. I know that the US does not have an agreement with Cuba to take back its troublesome nationals.

       Why don’t we just take them to Guantanamo Bay, open the gate and shove them out.

    Sounds like this fits the definition of Domestic Terrorism–those supreme court justices responsible for this decision that puts American citizens lives in danger should be held accountable for the actions or crimes that these illegal sub-humans commit against the citizenry for they are just as responsible if not more so…

  •  Someone mentioned to me all the businesses they open.  Because those 2 or 3 convenience stores, bodegas, nail places and laundromats are a huge boon to the economy.  What would we ever do without them?

    Deportation is the correct policy, but it does involve its own complications. The Mara Salvatruchas began when Los Angeles gang members were deported back to El Salvador–there they evolved a particularly brutal style of thug culture, and have wrecked public safety in most of Central America. And, because of our porous border, they have managed to introduce their venomous style back into the USA. So we can’t just send them back–we have to be sure that they are rendered harmless once they arrive in their home countries.

    Because the democrats WANT Third World criminal aliens here to prey on American citizens, especially White citizens.  To the White-hating genocidal maniacs that control this country, your White life is utterly worthless, good only to serve as cannon fodder in the government’s overseas wars.

    Remember this case from 2008??   This is the legacy of democratic policies of releasing violent, illegal felons onto America’s streets and then protecting them with special rights and sanctuary policies.

    This story received some publicity and then died completely ho-humed by the government – controlled media, and I LIVE in California:

    6/12/2012 update:

    An illegal alien opened fire on a car carrying Tony Bologna, 48, and his three sons — Michael, 20, Matthew, 16 and Andrew — in June 2008, killing Anthony and Michael. Matthew died at the hospital after his mother had him removed from life support. “It was the most difficult part of my entire life to look at my baby and know he was gone …”

    As a juvenile, El Salvadoran native Ramos was convicted of gang-related assault and the attempted robbery of a pregnant woman. Protected by San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy, he was never reported to federal immigration authorities. Arrested on a gun charge, federal officials inexplicably did not place an immigration hold on Ramos after learning he was an illegal alien.

    Danielle Bologna waited nearly four years to hear Ramos was guilty.

    Need more proof that the governmedia believe illegal aliens should have rights, privileges and priority over American citizens?
