My earlier report about the April 19 House hearing about illegal alien crime
was focused on the victims: House Immigration Committee: Two Mothers Tell of Children Killed by Illegal Aliens.
In addition, a Maryland sheriff made a convincing case that Obama’s disappearing enforcement has left the nation considerably more endangered by illegal alien criminals.
Sheriff Charles A. Jenkins of Frederick County warned that “Open border policies and failure to enforce our immigration laws have greatly impacted public safety in every community in America and cities are becoming war zones. Every single day, more Americans are becoming victims of avoidable crimes.”
Jenkins noted that his office has partnered with federal authorities on the 287(g) program since 2008 and it has been effective in identifying and removing illegal aliens criminals to better protect Americans in his jurisdiction. But clearly the extent of the administration’s border anarchy has made it hard for local law enforcement to keep up.
The sheriff further explained, “The criminal alien gang numbers are growing across the nation, and the serious crimes are increasing. There is also a direct nexus between the action on unaccompanied minors of two years ago and the increases we are seeing in gang crimes.”
Get that last bit? The many thousands
of unaccompanied kiddies
from Central America of yesteryear who needed immediate housing
and programs in schools
etc. ad nauseum have now morphed into violent gangsters.
What a surprise. Some were just pretending to be kids
for all the easy freebies and others had existing gang affiliations
. Plus there are no jobs for unskilled non-English-speaking kids (sometimes preliterate
), making them perfect recruits for gangs. The care and feeding of Centrals was estimated to be in the billions of dollars
, and that was without their being criminals. America is importing violent criminals and taxpayers are forced to pay for it.
