U.S. Releases Illegal Immigrants Who Are Sex Offenders

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, September 15, 2013

The news last week that federal authorities had to release 2,837 convicted sex offenders back onto the streets has renewed focus on a Supreme Court case that requires the government to release immigrants whose home countries won’t take them back.

A report released last week by the Government Accountability Office said the nearly 3,000 sex offenders are part of the 59,347 immigrants who the courts have ruled cannot be held, whom the U.S. has been unable to send home, and who instead were released under some sort of supervision as of September 2012.

The GAO took a sample of the sex offender cases and concluded that about 5 percent of the time U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement didn’t ensure that the immigrants released were properly registered with local authorities as sex offenders.

“I’m surprised that only 5 percent of them are not properly registered,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Following on news this year that ICE released a number of immigrants from custody and blamed automatic budget cuts, the latest report again highlights a thorny part of the immigration system.

In this case, the sex offenders and other immigrants—legal and illegal—who have been released are thanks to a 2001 Supreme Court ruling in what is known as the Zadvydas case. The court ruled 5-4 that detention for immigration purposes can’t be punitive; therefore, if there isn’t a likelihood someone can be deported, they generally have to be released.

That matters because many countries delay documents to make it more difficult for U.S. deportation. {snip}

Judy Rabinovitz, deputy director at the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said the GAO report highlights how the system is supposed to work: Once illegal immigrants are released, they are supposed to be under supervision, and ICE is supposed to make sure the sex offenders register with authorities according to state and local laws.

Under existing law, once another country refuses to accept its people for repatriation, the government is supposed to begin refusing to issue travel visas for citizens of that country to visit the U.S.

Ms. Vaughan said that can be a devastatingly effective tool, but administrations of both parties had refused to use it.

{snip}

The massive immigration bill that passed the Senate this year waters down the visa penalty law, giving wide latitude to Homeland Security and the State Department to determine whether another country is being recalcitrant.

House Republicans are looking at a more concrete solution.

One of their immigration bills, which cleared the Judiciary Committee this year, would give the Homeland Security secretary the power to indefinitely order the detention of immigrants who are deemed to be public safety threats. That bill could come to the House floor this year if Republicans move ahead with an immigration debate.

    How about indefinite detention pending deportation of all illegal immigrants? Make the work while detained to earn their keep. That will provide a disincentive to illegal immigrants.

    • RisingReich

      Stop feeding the critters and you will see less and less of them…..

    • John R

      Makes too much sense. That’s why they won’t do it.

    • Sick of it

      Work without pay.

    • me

      Since they’re criminals already, why not bring back the firing squads for these pedo rapists?

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Too good for them, hanging them in groups is what I would do with them.

  • In the meantime, I am still on the Terrorist Watch List.

    • bigone4u

      Posting on amren probably doesn’t do anything to help you get off the Terrorist Watch List. Who knows? I may be on there too for posting here. All of us may be.

      • Maybe if I change my Disqus display name to Anonymous Mexican and change my avatar to something that says “Brown pride” or “I plan to blow up Whites” they’ll take me off.

      • American Renaisance is listed with the Southern Poverty Law Center. The 2 key words turn up a listing of perhaps 50 first & last names. These are people who are listed as being active in hate crimes or racism or supremacy groups. Actually their links seem more thorough than the ones on this site.

    • Jefferson

      How do you find out if you are on the terrorist watch list ? Do you get a letter in the mail from Eric Holder telling you that you are an enemy of his people ?

      • John R

        If Eric Holder sent me a letter, claiming that I am an enemy of his people, I would reply “thanks for the compliment!”

    • dd121

      Me too. Once on I don’t think you can get off. I’ve tried. (I have a common Irish name).

    “…a Supreme Court case that requires the government to release immigrants whose home countries won’t take them back.”

    ———————————————————————————————————————

    Here’s an idea – get rid of the pro-pedophile idiots in the supreme court, and odds are life’s gonna get much better.

    • RisingReich

      Agreed but the problem is those are life time appointments….we literally in some cases will have to hope they DIE before any correction in these unconstitutional rulings can me made.

      • Spartacus

        You didn’t get what I meant… And here I thought I was good at being subtle.

        • RisingReich

          Yeah I get it now, Spartacus. 🙂

        • Romulus

          I gotcha bruder!

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      My suggestion is that the offenders be released to live in the homes of the Supreme Court justices who made such an atrocious ruling. And have some others live with Judy Rabinowitz of the ACLU. What a bleepin’ world. Sex offenders have the chance to be free and start all over with a new identity.

  • JohnEngelman

    Illegal immigration is itself a crime. Illegal immigrants who have not committed other crimes should be deported. Those who have committed additional crimes should serve their time in prison before being deported.

    • David Ashton

      Where to?

      • Easyrhino1

        The Hamptons!

      • mobilebay

        How about a distant island somewhere surrounded by sharks?

      • John R

        Solution? An American version of Devil’s Island. Somewhere in a remote Pacific Island. These people are not American citizens, therefore Constitutional protections do not apply to them.

        • DonReynolds

          No need for an island, send them ALL to Alaska. There is plenty of room and not many people. Let them stay there as long as they like (and not anywhere in the lower 48)…..or they can return directly to wherever they are from, once they have the money for a ticket.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            NO!!! Alaska is a beautiful place. Wall up Detroit and stick them in there, ala “Escape from New York.”

          • Just make sure that they don’t begin having kids. Then in a generation or two, they’ll own Alaska & will want it as their own country or US dependency.

      • Sick of it

        Their country of origin. If they don’t want them, we can send them home in the company of well-armed U.S. soldiers and dare them to do sh*t.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          This is what I think we should do. Most of the countries refusing to take their illegals back are poor and have little to no military power.

          We are the strongest nation in the world. We should make them take back their own criminal scum, by force if necessary.

          • John R

            Exactly! Why the heck do we pay money for a military anyway? Is it to make sure that Middle Eastern leaders-like Assad-are nice and fair to their poor people? (Who cares? It is a civil war, there!) Or, is it to PROTECT THE PEOPLE AND BORDERS OF THIS NATION!? Sorry about the caps, but this just makes me mad.

      • DonReynolds

        Who cares where?

      • Luca

        Pay Liberia to take them.

        • David Ashton

          “Israel has reached an agreement to transfer [tens of] thousands of African migrants to Uganda [who] entered Israel illegally via the Egyptian border…Eritrean and Sudanese nationals [who] cannot be sent back…will be given a sum of $1,500 dollars…. Dismas Nkuda, a journalist and refugee rights activist in Uganda, said: ‘The agreement is clearly in return for business relations and the extensive weapons deals between Israel and Uganda.” – The Jewish Chronicle (London), September 6, 2013, p.42.

      • Spartacus

        Just shoot them…

  • Easyrhino1

    Release them all in San Francisco. It’s a sanctuary city and I’m sure they’d be overjoyed by the influx of diversity and cultural enrichment.

    • Ella

      I agree. Let the liberals suffer their fate of “open borders.” They have had enough experience with serial killers and cult leaders like Manson. Many will not even know the difference of 3,000 new sex offenders in the Bay Area.

      • Sick of it

        Not since they can rape little boys without fear of public disdain, let alone punishment.

  • bigone4u

    If they won’t take their scum back, then we don’t let any of them in for any reason–cut off their entry permits. Simple and effective, but once again our pols–Republicants and DemocRats have sold us out. Hold them all accountable at town meetings and at the ballot box.

  • kjh64

    They do NOT have to release these people. The government can put them on a plane and send them back. Once they arrive at the airport in their home country, the people there can deal with them.

    • Easyrhino1

      Arrive at the airport?
      Be cheaper and faster to issue them parachutes, come in low then it’s c-ya!

      • Libs are We Todd Ed

        Parachutes are expensive give them an old couch cushion to break the landing.

  • OhWow

    But…but…they only want to do jobs Americans won’t do!

    ….and rape their 14 yr old daughters.

    • Sick of it

      They do less of the former, more of the latter.

  • Luca

    If countries won’t take their own garbage bag then we need to deport them to a corrupt country on the dark continent that will take them in for a small one time payment.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      No, we do not send them back, we should put them to death as enemy insurgents then make sure the bones are NEVER found before they rape or murder white Americans. In my city alone, in the past few years there has been a litany of rapes, or rapes than murders against local white women and children at the hands of Hispanics who are also illegal aliens. The crimes were incredibly brutal and heinous, one woman was butchered literally as she died. Therefore the best thing to do with them is to execute them.

  • IKantunderstand

    If you start from the basic assumption that the government hates White people, than every single solitary thing this government does is one hundred percent predictable. So, when in doubt about what the gov. will do, just conceptualize the worst possible outcome for Whites, and, voila, you can predict completely accurately what will be done. So simple, really. Just remember: As a White, you will be made to suffer. Period.

    • Beetlejuice

      I must commend you on a most excellent comment. So many comments here could be answered with your post: The basic assumption must be that the government hates whites and is hell bent on destroying them.
      Ask: Is it bad for whites? Then that will be the government’s action. Foreign pedophiles? Do they hurt whites? Then they’ll stay. Moving bantus into white areas thru HUD? Does it hurt whites? Then do it. Does importing uneducated, unintelligent, unhealthy immigrants from Africa hurt whites? Then do it. Do wide open borders hurt whites? Then they’ll remain open until white America is completely destroyed.
      And so on. Yes, indeed, it becomes entirely predictable.

      • IKantunderstand

        I posited my theory, you, my friend, made it crystal clear.

    • John R

      Your post actually makes the most sense.

      • IKantunderstand

        John R, if you analyze every move this government has made heretofor, there really is no other conclusion you can come to.

    • me

      Bingo! The Marxists in the government want Whites GONE!

  • Bill

    Why not send them to Gitmo??

  • MekongDelta69

    Laws, schmaws – “we dun need no steenking lores.”

    [What? You actually expected a sane comment to an insane article?]

  • willbest

    Yeah we are trying to bomb Syria, because some group (perhaps even the CIA) crossed the “red line”, and you are telling me that we don’t have a solution in the event a person’s country says no we don’t want them back?

    Also, we shouldn’t spend money housing other country’s trash. Just execute them and be done with. If a person’s country doesn’t care enough about their own citizens to give them human rights, who are we to disagree. That would be subjecting them to our culture, which I have been told is bad, and judgmental, and icky.

    • Jefferson

      When it comes to kicking out Squat Monsters, the U.S government is a paper tiger.

  • IstvanIN

    If they won’t take back their trash:
    1) Refuse to allow their imports into the US hold them at the ports.
    2) No imports from Pervistan? Hold any US assets they may have.
    3) Put them on a freighter with a Naval escort, put them in row boats when you get to the 20 mile limit, and let them row to their home shores.

    • Ella

      Istavan, you have a good idea in returning the sex offenders on a boat to country of origin, but even those citizens need some protection from them. I thought about tossing them overboard, if they can make the 20 mile swim, as part of a rehabilitative program. They have time to think about their hideous crimes.

  • White Mom in WDC

    Another prong of the plan for white genocide. Most Pedophiles go after white kids. That’s right. Look at the statistics, if they can be trusted.

    • me

      Their ‘culture’ condones having sex with girls as soon as they have their first menses. They have the ‘quincinera’ parties for fifteen year old girls, which means that they’re ripe for the pickings. I personally knew at least six White girls that were impregnated by criminal Squat Monsters at the age of thirteen.

      • White Mom in WDC

        Yuck

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        I wonder how many of them were hunted down then eliminated by these girls male relatives. Apparently, not nearly enough!

  • Kathy M

    Unbelievable. Now, more than ever, arm yourselves via CCPs.

  • John R

    So, you’re a sex offender, enter the US illegally, and “HA HA HA” you can’t send them back because their country doesn’t want them? Huh? Like WE DO??? This just gets crazier and crazier. Like another poster said: “You can’t make this stuff up!”

  • Sick of it

    Another case where the Supreme Court violates the rights of AMERICAN citizens in favor of non-Americans. We have the right to be secure in our persons and our property, but the black robed activists simply cannot accept it!

    • DonReynolds

      Inside those black robes is nothing more than flesh, and bone, and blood. After they hang up their black robe…..they have to drive in a car (on public streets) to their home (where they live). The law (including the Constitution) is not a suicide pact.

      • Sick of it

        All law which conflicts with the Constitution can be declared null and void, as it is the supreme law of the land. That includes any garbage rulings by mere men in black robes. Following the fake law of a corrupt society is indeed a suicide pact. We need to pull people off of the ledge.

      • me

        The SCOTUS is anti-White, anti-Constitution, and anti-USA. They should all be stripped of their titles and imprisoned for treason–among other crimes.

  • WR_the_realist

    That was one hell of a Supreme Court ruling. We are forced to keep other country’s perverts and criminals. We should be able to put them on a helicopter, fly them over their home country, and drop them from 1,000 feet. Problem solved.

  • Luca

    If countries won’t take their own garbage back then we should deport them to a country on the dark continent that will gladly accept them for a one-time fee.

    • we could intercept pirate ships and then put the deportees on board. What happens afterwards isn’t our problem.

  • dd121

    Another example of liberal logic.

  • DonReynolds

    That is why they make parachutes……one per customer, from 10,000 feet, over their own country, no more nonsense about whether they are allowed back in their own country. Easy as pie.

    • Sloppo

      That method combined with enforced borders could be effective.

    • Planes at 10,000 ft can be easly shot down: then we’d have to pay damages if our crashing plane hit an environmentally senistive area as it’s bound to do.

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    There used to be a group like that, but it mostly consists of undercover FBI agents now.

  • me

    Whites need to bring back some ‘frontier justice’ into their neighborhoods.

  • JackKrak

    US – “This person is a citizen of your country who has committed a sexual crime in the United States after entering the country illegally. We demand that you take custody of him immediately”

    Country X – “No”

    US – “…….Ok, nevermind. Sorry to have bothered you”

    Country X – (moment of incredulity followed by hysterical laughter)

    • mikebowen55

      Here’s how it would go in a sane nation:

      US – “This person is a citizen of your country who has committed a
      sexual crime in the United States after entering the country illegally.
      We demand that you take custody of him immediately”

      Country X – “No”

      US – “Ok” … BLAM!

      End of story.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        These violent illegals should not be treated as criminals, they should be killed as enemy insurgents and terrorists. Sex offenders especially, there is no cure for them other than a grave, from which only two people have ever been known to escape and they are found in the Bible.

  • mikebowen55

    The supreme traitors come to that conclusion because they are required to act in a manner that is wrong for this nation. Granted, they may toss out a bone or two, but overall that is the idea.

  • newscomments70

    Does the government really want civil war? The most hateful act imaginable is to rape someone’s children. Do not mess with someone’s children. These third world subhumans are genetically prone to rape. They cannot control themselves. The liberal government wants them to rape your children. They can control them somewhat, and they choose to allow them to rape your children. Whenever you see a liberal politician or judge, this is what they are. They are the enemy. German nazis in WWII were actually forbidden to rape, by penalty of death. Liberals are worse than nazis.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    “Under existing law, once another country refuses to accept its people for repatriation, the government is supposed to begin refusing to issue travel visas for citizens of that country to visit the U.S.

    Ms. Vaughan said that can be a devastatingly effective tool, but administrations of both parties had refused to use it.”

    Once again, normal Americans have been failed by both the Democrats and the Republicans. They get more sickening by the day.

  • Earl Turner

    Apparently ZOG wants even more shock troops to deploy against whitey.

  • Ella

    As a reminder, the Feds do not want to fund the borders and remain broke. We only hope Congress will NOT fund Obamacare too. The Feds continue to punish the American people by releasing these dangerous thugs into American communities of all colour. Government creates xenophobia by refusing to do its job of protecting their borders.

  • John R

    No argument from me. But, at present, we will have to wait for the Supreme Court to overturn a few earlier rulings for that to take place. Heck, for a start, I would be happy if our elected officials would just understand plain English! Example: “In this country illegally.” Why is THAT so hard to understand?

  • Timothy Adams

    How about the government actually obeys the laws for a change and pulls the visa program for violating nations? Meanwhile, march them in shackles onto a plane and dump them back home.

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    Ah, there’s the question, amr. Folk I have known from the South have told me that this particular group had differing activities, depending upon the time frame. There was (according to him) a time when they punished wrong-doing like rape, adultery (by men, no less), among whites, as well as blacks.

    Then again, I’m not claiming he was being objective about it. My little joke was simply to point out, that for some people, they had at one time that role.
