I suppose it was only a matter of time before countries trying to solve their domestic problems by exporting their uneducated, disaffected and criminally-minded citizens was going to propose something like this. Just what might countries like Mexico propose we do with their citizens who have illegally come to our country and then were convicted of violent felonies? Award them citizenship?
The always impressive folks at Judicial Watch have the scoop:
To support the request, the mayor (Jose Reyes Ferriz) of Mexico’s most violent city, Ciudad Juarez, pointed out that of 80,000 people deported to his community in the past three years nearly 30,000 had committed serious crimes in the U.S. Around 7,000 had served sentences for rape and 2,000 for murder. The criminal deportees have contributed to the escalating drug-cartel violence in his city, Mayor Ferriz said, so he wants the U.S. to make other arrangements when prison sentences are completed.
If this seems unbelievable, consider that a few years ago Mexico’s government formally complained that too many Mexicans had been repatriated from the U.S. and that the entire country was overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools. Various Mexican legislators publicly chastised the U.S. for sending illegal immigrants back, explaining that the country could not accommodate the “repatriated.”
I’ll just bet the Obama administration is seriously considering this request.
Yet doesn’t it seem strange that according to the Mexican government, 37% of all illegal aliens deported by the United States to Ciudad Juarez had been incarcerated for a felony offense, and 11% were either rapists or murderers? What about all that talk about how illegal aliens are supposedly more law-abiding than American citizens, and that we’re spending all our time deporting non-violent traffic offenders? C’mon, just how can that be possible?
Certainly not all illegal aliens are criminals above and beyond their immediate violation of our immigration laws. And their identity fraud and theft. And their unlawfully obtaining public benefits, like Obama’s Auntie Zetuni who was cashing in $50K a year in disability benefits for a disease that doesn’t actually seem to exist, and living in publicly-subsidized housing. And their perjury on government forms like the I-9. Beyond criminal behavior like being an willful uninspected entrant, benefits fraud, perjury, driving without a license, and all that other stuff about complying with pesky laws that the rest of us obey, I’m sure most of them — at least 63%, are not felons.
So don’t be hatin’ on me, saying I’m a racist or something. Hate is bad, you know. Don’t do it. I might mistake you for one of those moonbats who think ObamaLand makes any sense at all.
