Immigration is perhaps one of the most important issues of our day, particularly the aspects of it that are related to our national security and the safety of citizens, especially those who live close to the border.This is why President Trump has been taking action to empower and equip Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to find illegals and send them packing back home.
To illustrate just how serious this threat is to our country, ICE recently busted a group of illegals who were working construction on one of our air force bases.The Daily Caller is reporting, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have arrested illegal aliens working construction at the Travis Air Force Base and are looking to deport them as soon as possible.
ICE quickly arrived on the scene after a military official realized that two illegals, Hugo Mejia and Rodrigo Nuñez, did not have valid social security numbers and reported the pair of construction workers at the base, The Mercury News reports.
After arresting Mejia and Nuñez, ICE has placed the men in expedited deportation proceedings, as both men have removal orders stemming from when they entered the country illegally over a decade ago.ICE told The Mercury News that the two men “will remain in ICE custody pending court proceedings and it will be up to a judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review to determine whether they will be subject to removal from the U.S.”
The immigration attorney for the two men has submitted an asylum request, but in order for that request to go through, the men will have to prove they are likely to face severe persecution upon their return to Mexico.
How scary is it to think there were folks who crossed the border illegally, working on a military base, a job which could’ve gained them access to all sorts of information, weapons, and military personnel, should their intentions have been hostile?A better illustration of the need for stringent enforcement of immigration law couldn’t have been dreamed up. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
