Obama Admin. Releasing Murderers Into U.S.
Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, told Fox News on August 6 that the federal government is allowing murderers from Central America to be released into the United States.
We already know this. He further explains that among the illegal “children” are teenage gang members who are being released to family members in America. He told Fox News. If these criminals have family here in the US, ICE is releasing them to family members.
Cabrera said to Fox News. “We’ve had a couple that had admitted to murders in their home country. They were 17 years old, 16 years old, and the United States government thought it fit to release them to their parents here in the United States.
“Our agents aren’t allowed to do the job they were hired to do,” Cabrera told Fox News. “We’re walking more and more people out the door … they’re catch-and-release that have family units. The criminal aliens that are coming in, some of these young gang member kids that are coming in, and there’s no criminal history in the United States, we’re releasing them out the door and more and more it gets frustrating.”
In June, Cabrera told National Review that Border Patrol agents have reunited identified gang members with their families in the United States. He said a Border Patrol officer had recently told him about a known teen member of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) transnational gang whom he was powerless to stop entering the country.
“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Cabrera said. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”
Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Arizona, complained in June about the Border Patrol’s policies in a statement also quoted by National Review: “It’s upsetting that a lot of [the gang members] are 16 or 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation.”
During the heyday of legal immigration to the United States, about two percent of immigrants being processed at Ellis Island and other immigration stations were denied admission and sent back to their countries of origin for reasons such as having a chronic contagious disease, a criminal background, or insanity.
These illegals could be screened the same today, but politicians won’t go for that, as t hey see themselves losing future voters.
