Congressman Ted Poe: Send Convicted Foreign Criminals Home

Some countries in the international community refuse to accept their citizens after they have committed crimes in the US and Washington tries to deport them. That list includes but isn’t limited to Cuba, China, India, Jamaica, Pakistan, Somalia, Iran, Trinidad and Tobago, and Bangladesh.

The brutal murder of five in San Francisco brought this subject up again. The accused killer, Binh Thai Luc (pictured below), had served a prison term for robbery but was not deported because Vietnam refused to take him back. See Accused San Francisco Mass Murderer Was Not Deported to Vietnam. So the crime was totally preventable, but Washington has been weak in dealing with irresponsible nations and thousands of dangerous criminals have been turned loose on American streets as a result.

Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) has been a leader on the issue of persuading reprobate nations to take back their criminals, and he discussed his strategy recently on Fox News. His legislation is H.R. 3256: Deport Convicted Foreign Criminals Act.
