Here at allenbwest.com, we’ve been trying to convey the simple message that President Obama has been violating the rule of law, our Constitution, with his unilateral actions on immigration and releasing unlawful enemy combatants from GITMO. Both actions violate Article I, Section 8, Clauses 4 and 11, and there are consequences to lawlessness. Sadly they can be deadly. We recently shared with y’all the fact that some 3700 Threat Level I illegal aliens have been released by the Obama administration back into American communities.As reported by the Washington Times, “More than 100 immigrants whom the Obama administration released back into the community went on to be charged with subsequent killings, according to government data released Monday that raises more questions about whether immigration authorities are doing enough to detail illegal immigrants awaiting deportation. In one case, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acknowledged that its agents didn’t find out about an illegal immigrant’s death threats and court injunctions against him — which should have put him back in detention — until after the man was accused of murder.
That case, involving Apolinar Altamirano, is the latest instance of someone who went through the Obama administration’s deportation system and was released, only to go on to be charged with major crimes. “ICE was not aware of the injunctions against Mr. Altamirano until after his January 22, 2015 arrest for first-degree murder, armed robbery and related offenses,” the agency said in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, and Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican in whose state the killing occurred. All told, 121 immigrants who were held but eventually released by ICE went on to commit “homicide-related offenses” from 2010 through 2014, the agency said.”
Now, just imagine if this were a Republican president what the media would be saying once this revelation became evident? Here we have a presidential administration taking unconstitutional actions that have resulted in the deaths of American citizens. Would it be a stretch to consider the Obama administration as complicit in these murders? And once again, you must understand the majority of these releases are being done under the guise of ICEs discretion. Yes, there is a consequence for disregard of the rule of law — sadly it does not affect the Obama administration but rather places law abiding Americans in danger.
“Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime,” said Maria Espinoza, co-founder of the Remembrance Project, which advocates for victims of crimes committed by immigrants. “This further supports what we have been fighting for. The safety and welfare of Americans must be the priority of the administration and the Republican-led Congress.” Don Rosenberg, whose son was killed in a traffic accident by an illegal immigrant driving without a license, said the government lacks the willpower to deport people and to do it quickly. “These people can and should be deported. We have that option, and we don’t want to take it, and this is what happens,” he said. “I guess until somebody who has the responsibility to make these decisions has one of their loved ones killed, it’s going to continue to happen.”So what do these radical Hispanic groups and others say to Mr. Rosenberg? Is he a bigoted racist and a xenophobe? Is it wrong to believe the rule of law should not be dismissed for the sake of a political agenda? The operative word is “illegal” and no wordsmithing master of lexicon deception — undocumented — can ease the pain of those who have lost their loved ones to the politically correct endeavor to give rights to criminal illegal aliens.
And consider that the Obama administration wants to “normalize” relations with Cuba. Well, The Washington Times reported that ICE releases hundreds of Cuban criminals into U.S. communities every year because the island nation refuses to take them back.
Of course there will be a very slick response, i.e. excuse, from the White House on this — perhaps even some faux apology. However, who will take responsibility? God knows, we have U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry whose family will never have anyone take responsibility for the policy that led to his death.And so we have some 121 instances of criminal illegal aliens being released back into the public domain creating a threatening environment for American citizens. I guess we’re just supposed to sit back and take another sip of hope and change Kool-aid.
Just think, the prison employee who enabled two murderers to escape has been charged. Who in the Obama administration will be charged for releasing criminals back into our communities?
