Justin Bieber's DUI was covered by Ryan Kennedy here on VDARE.com [Why Obama Won’t Deport Justin Bieber…And Why The Treason Lobby Is Worried] Here it is in Time Magazine
In particular, the New York Times’ Andrew Rosenthal has suggested that if Bieber were “poor, obscure and, say, Hispanic” he might be swiftly deported. [More]
The chaos of immigration litigation in the federal immigration bureaucracy has gotten so bad that even a criminal alien resident convicted of repeat felony drunk driving—who was drunk behind the wheel and killed someone—can't be ordered to be deported and stay deported from the United States.He was talking about the case of a man named Lara-Cazares, who was a legal resident, killed someone, and couldn't be deported because it wasn't a "crime of violence." That adds something to Miller's statement that "According to federal law, only violent crimes and sentences longer than 1 year result in a re-evaluation of visa status." So even if Bieber had been actually drunk, and had killed someone, he wouldn't have had to leave.
By contrast, undocumented workers can be arrested and deported with minimal due process of the law.
Well, no, they can't, exactly. There's all those lawyers (ACLU, ILW, Pro Bono lawyers ) and a system called the EOIR where appeals go on and on, and where it's said that "It ain't over 'til the alien wins."
But the point they're all overlooking is that under immigration law, any illegal alien can be deported for no reasons except that he's illegal. Bieber is legal.
What Comprehensive Immigration Reform (Amnesty) going to do is make every illegal in America as hard to deport as Justin Bieber—even if they kill someone on the roads.
