Surprise! Administration’s ‘Humanitarian Deportation’ Means Criminal Aliens Get to Stay

Following a promise from the Presidente to make deportation more “humane”, the administration has decreed that “petty” criminals can benefit from Obama’s executive amnesty.

Who hasn’t seen this coming? More “humanitarian” deportations weren’t going to include better sandwiches for Pancho during his trip home: obviously enforcement standards had to fall lower.

But it’s worse than that: there are no standards. “Petty” crime has no definition at all, so it’s whatever some bureaucrat wants it to be. Is theft no big deal? What about carjacking? Is drunk driving a petty crime?

Drunk driving is a crime many in the government have preferred to overlook, even though numerous Americans have been killed by drunk-driving illegal aliens. Arguably from a public safety perspective, drunk-driving aliens should be at the top of anyone’s Deport ASAP list. But we cannot trust the Obama administration to act with the protection of Americans in mind.

In 2011, many concerned citizens of Milford Massachusetts gathered to demand the government enforce immigration laws after young Matthew Denice was dragged to death by a previously arrested drunk-driving illegal alien.

In addition, the protection of illegal alien criminals has been a common theme in Democrat immigration legislation and policies generally. In 2011, Senator Jeff Sessions observed that the DREAM Act of that year was worse than the last in terms of creating a Christmas tree of goodies for dangerous foreigners, and he provided a point-by-point list of criminal-friendly items.

Is not every immigration bill worse than the last when the Democrats are major authors (and many Repubs are just as bad)? The problem is the Raza open-borders extremists are pulling the legislative strings and they do not act in good faith.

DHS giving illegal immigrant ‘petty’ criminals second chance in waiver application process, Daily Caller, March 24, 2014

Are you an illegal immigrant whose waiver to stay in the country was denied because of your criminal past? Well, you’re in luck, because the Obama Administration may let you stay in the country anyway.

In a guidance distributed to congressional offices and obtained by The Daily Caller, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it is reopening cases in which applications for provisional unlawful presence waivers were denied to criminals.

According to the notice, USCIS had determined that applicants should not be denied an I-601A waiver due to a past criminal offense so long as it “falls under the petty offense or youthful offender exceptions or is not considered a crime involving moral turpitude.”Last week, USCIS began reopening waiver applications denied due ‘solely’ to a prior criminal offense before January 24, 2014, “in order to determine whether there is reason to believe the prior criminal offense might render the applicant inadmissible.”

The notice does not specify what types of crimes constitute a “petty offense,” and defines neither “youthful offender” nor “a crime involving moral turpitude.” Neither DHS nor USCIS responded to TheDC’s requests for comment. Continue reading this article

Guatemalan War Criminal (an American citizen!) Is Sentenced to Prison in California

On Monday, a Guatemalan ex-soldier, Jorge Sosa (pictured), was sentenced to ten years in prison for lying about his past in order to enter this country and become an American citizen. The jail time sounds pretty slim for a man who took part in the massacre of at least 160 people in the village of Dos Erres in 1982, but the real accounting will hopefully occur when he is deported to Guatemala where wartime atrocities are still remembered.

Sosa is a perfect example of how the worst war criminals on earth can waltz in to stupid-generous America and make themselves at home. The details about the massacre makes for gruesome testimony, such as how villagers thrown into a well, followed by a grenade. But Sosa lied on his asylum application that he was a morally upstanding fellow, suitable for American admittance, and he got it.

Some of the diverse war criminals admitted to America include:

● Bosnian Sulejman Mujagic, was accused of murder and torture while an Army commander during the ethnic war in the former Yugoslavia. He was arrested in Utica in 2012, where 6500 Bosnians reside in one of the largest settlements of that tribe in the country.

Gonzalo Guevara Cerritos was arrested in 2006 for being an illegal alien and also a member of the Salvadoran military death squad that brutally murdered six priests in 1989.

Kelbessa Negewo was an Ethiopian government official who participated in torture of political enemies who objected to the marxist regime. After immigrating to the US, he was later recognized in a New York City elevator by one of his torture victims.

Marko Boskic was a Serb militia triggerman who helped execute thousands of residents of Srebrenica in the 1995 massacre. Even so, he entered the US in 2000 using his real name and settled in Peabody Massachusetts where he had numerous arrests for drunk driving and such, but was only tracked down when Boston Globe reporter Elizabeth Neuffer investigated him. In 2010, the US extradited Boskic to Bosnia where he was tried and imprisoned.

Over the last few days, citizens have learned that the administration plans to loosen the standards by which asylum is granted, with an eye toward the million of Syrians who have been displaced. Persons who have “limited terrorist ties” will now be eligible to enter this country and become American citizens.

In fact, this nation has a terrible history of letting bad guys in, whether they are categorized as terrorists or mass-murdering war criminals. The idea that US screening is too tough is ludicrous, given the record.

A segment from Fox News on Monday listed several terrorists who received asylum in the United States, namely Ramzi Yousef (perpetrator of 1993 World Trade Center bombing), Gazi Ibrahim Abu Mezer (part of 1997 New York subway bomb plot), Mir Amal Kansi (the 1993 shooter at CIA headquarters), Nuradin Abdi (planner of an Ohio shopping center bombing) and the Tsarnaev brothers (bombers of the Boston Marathon):

As despicable as ordinary war criminals are, most lead quiet lives in the United States where they seek to hide from their shameful pasts. But the jihadists that the administration will most certainly admit with its new permissive policy are active, willful enemies who want to kill infidel Americans.

Here’s the AP report of Sosa getting sentenced:

Ex-Guatemalan soldier sentenced to 10 years in US, Associated Press, February 10, 2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — A former Guatemalan special forces soldier was sentenced Monday to a decade in an American prison for lying on a U.S. citizenship application about his role in a civil war massacre that decimated a village more than three decades ago.

Jorge Sosa, 55, who taught martial arts in Riverside County, was also stripped of his American citizenship after being convicted of failing to disclose his alleged participation in the killing of at least 160 people in the village of Dos Erres.

The former second lieutenant was not formally tried in California for war crimes, but U.S. District Court Judge Virginia A. Phillips noted that a jury found Sosa committed crimes in Dos Erres after comrades testified that he fired a weapon into a well filled with screaming villagers and stood by as soldiers under his command raped and killed women.

“These are the crimes the defendant lied about and didn’t disclose,” Phillips told the court before handing down the maximum 10-year sentence. “The particular facts of what occurred on Dec. 7, 1982, at Dos Erres cannot be characterized in any other way than as crimes.”

The case is one of several aimed at perpetrators of the massacre that took place at the height of Guatemala’s 36-year civil war. In that nation, five former soldiers have each been sentenced to more than 6,000 years in prison for the killings, while one of Sosa’s former comrades is also serving a decade-long sentence in a U.S. prison for lying on his immigration forms.

Massachusetts Mulling Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens

In Massachusetts, the usual suspects are pushing driver’s licenses for foreign intruders. The boosters claim that requiring aliens to learn the rules of the road would make driving safer for everyone.

Interestingly, when illegals lined up around the block for licenses in Nevada, around 75 percent of applicants failed the written test. That figure would comport with the arrogance of Latin males who think they don’t need to study to pass a test.

However, a substantial number of deaths by illegal aliens are fueled by excessive drinking, where knowing state laws and the stopping distance at 60 mph won’t prevent a blotto drunk foreigner from killing innocents. In fact, drinking immoderately is considered to be a positive character attribute indicating macho-ness in many hispanic cultures, particularly Mexico.

Back to Massachusetts, the mother of crime victim Matthew Denice has spoken out against the proposed weakening of driver’s license protections.

Denice (pictured) was was killed when a drunk driving illegal alien Ecuadoran smashed into his motorcycle and dragged the young man for a quarter mile as bystanders banged on the side of the perp’s truck trying to make him stop. The accused killer, Nicholas Guaman, had a long rap sheet including assaulting a police officer, but had been shielded from deportation by Massachusetts’ sanctuary policy.

Why do liberals want to protect dangerous criminals and willfully thwart public safety? Are they insane?

Advocates push for driver’s licenses for Mass. immigrants, Fox News Boston, January 26, 2014

BOSTON — Lawmakers will soon consider passing a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license.

The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, or MIRA, is backing the bill.

Policy director Shannon Erwin says that issuing licenses to undocumented immigrants would make the roads safer because they would have to pass all of the RMV requirements and get insurance.

“It would let more drivers take the drivers’ exam. More people to learn the rules of the road, more people to purchase individual liability insurance,” Erwin said. “Nobody wants to be in an accident with an uninsured driver.”

Maureen Maloney lost her son, Matthew Denice, in August 2011 when illegal immigrant Nicolas Guaman allegedly struck and killed Matthew with his truck, dragging Matthew’s body down a Milford street.

Guaman is charged with his murder. Continue reading this article

Goodlatte Comes Out for Legalization (Amnesty) on Spanish-language TV

Politico reports that the powerful Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte believes he has the “solution” for the problem of 11 million illegal aliens living openly in the shadows.

Note to clueless Republicans: illegal aliens don’t cross the burning Arizona desert so they can become citizens to vote in US elections. They come for American jobs that normally pay substantially more than employment in Mexico and points south.

A December Pew poll found that exemption from deportation is more important to illegals than citizenship. No surprise there.

Even many legal immigrants are not that interested in becoming citizens. They want the financial benefits without the responsibility of political participation or unhinging from their homeland.

In addition, only 40 percent of the 1986 cohort of amnesty recipients became citizens by 2009, as noted by the Wall Street Journal.

But back to the millions of illegals who cause so much head-scratching in Washington, what should be done with them is the big question vexing the big important brains.

How about. . . nothing. Leave them exactly as they are because they are getting along fine as is. (Of course, if they are caught drunk driving or shoplifting or engaging in document fraud, they should be deported after serving appropriate sentences.)

pew resident pollLife “in the shadows” must be quite agreeable since many illegals manage for years, as illustrated by Pew research from the paper Unauthorized Immigrants: Length of Residency, Patterns of Parenthood, December 2011. It found that “nearly two-thirds of the 10.2 million unauthorized adult immigrants in the United States have lived in this country for at least 10 years.”

The illegals would prefer to have the threat of deportation removed so they can continue to work at their stolen jobs, and legalization with its associated work permit would do that immediately, or as soon as the rubber stamps can be produced. Then they would have been rewarded for lawbreaking by getting everything they came unlawfully to get. For that reason:

Legalization IS Amnesty.

Congressman Goodlatte has been dreaming up enforcement strategies that can be made into legislation, but he may have forgotten that actually carrying out laws is the job of the executive branch. And the current President is arguably the biggest friend open borders ever had and will not enforce sovereignty after an amnesty any more than he has thus far. A Rasmussen poll from last October found only 5 percent of voters believed that an amnesty would include genuine border enforcement.

The majority of skeptics are correct.

Bob Goodlatte pushes immigration solution, Politico, January 9, 2013

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) says he sees “no reason” why current undocumented immigrants shouldn’t gain legal status as long as Congress enacts tougher border-security and enforcement measures.

In a Telemundo interview set to air Sunday, Goodlatte addressed the set of immigration principles that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said earlier Thursday is expected to be released in the “coming weeks.”

While not delving into specifics of the document, Goodlatte said the principles are meant to show the broader House Republican Conference how all the pieces of immigration reform would fit together and ultimately “galvanize” support among lawmakers.

Though reform has essentially been written off for dead this Congress, Republican leaders in the House have said they want to get an overhaul done and many lawmakers in the chamber are eager to pass a rewrite of current immigration laws.

Goodlatte outlined three pillars of an overhaul – ensuring border enforcement, fixing the legal immigration system and determining a legal status for immigrants already in the country illegally. He stressed that interior enforcement was a major point of focus for Republicans, noting that as much of 40 percent of undocumented immigrants did not cross a border illegally, but overstayed a visa.

“If we can have a way to get [enforcement] up and operating, I see no reason why we can’t also have an agreement that shows how people who are not lawfully here can be able to be lawfully here – able to live here, work here, travel to and from their home country, be able to own a business, pay their taxes,” Goodlatte, a veteran lawmaker who was an immigration lawyer before coming to Congress, said on the Telemundo show “Enfoque,” according to a transcript of the interview.

Obama Deportations Are Minimal, but MSM Spreads Sob Stories of Suffering

Among the various end-of-year enumerations, one of Obama’s many falsehoods was notable: his “record deportations” turned out to be as big a whopper as ObamaCare’s “You can keep your doctor.”

Is el Presidente even deporting rapists, murderers and child abusers after prison? It doesn’t sound that way. Only a tiny handful of foreign intruders are being repatriated.

Obama deported only 0.2 percent of 11.7 million illegals in 2013, Daily Caller, By Neil Munro, December 31, 2013

Fewer than 0.2 percent of the 11.7 million illegal aliens in the United States were deported in 2012 for violating immigration laws, according to data released by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

“It is a drop in the bucket,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Caller. “Relative to the [agency] resources and tools they have been given to do this job, it is a record low,” said Vaughan.

Government officials say they deported a total of 368,644 people. But almost two-thirds of those people, or 235,093, were caught at the border and promptly returned to their home countries.

Only 133,551 resident illegals were picked up in the interior of the country and deported, the ICE report admitted.

But 82 percent of those residents were deported for other offenses, ICE acknowledged. Those offenses include drunk driving, assault, robbery and drug possession.

The remaining 18 percent adds up to only 20,000 illegals of the 11.7 million illegals believed to be living in the United States.

That’s only one immigration-law deportation for every 585 illegals. [. . .]

Meanwhile, liberal propaganda organs continue to pump out emotional tripe based upon the self-created problems of lawbreaking foreigners.

The Washington Post published one such item on Sunday about a family with an illegal alien dad who might get the hook. It reminded me of the dog-and-pony show I saw when Congressman Luis Gutierrez brought his magical amnesty tour to San Francisco in 2009: Treason Lobby Triumphant: Speaker Pelosi Boards Gutierrez Amnesty Express.

The opening act was a nine-year-old boy who complained of living in fear because his father might someday be caught and deported. The office janitor dad wasn’t in jail or especially in danger because of American immigration laws, but just the slight possibility of deportation was considered a cruelty worthy of sympathy by the largely hispanic audience.

The Washington Post found a similar worried little boy in order to purvey its sob story:

Below, illegal alien Jorge Penate resides in Virginia with his wife Diane and son Jason.

It’s too bad for the kid. It’s tough being 12 and knowing your father might be sent back to Guatemala — although a deportation is unlikely after all this sympathetic publicity.

On the other hand, 2.7 million American kids have a parent in jail caused by deliberate lawbreaking and nobody writes sensitive newspaper stories about their emotional suffering.

Deportations of parents can cast the lives of U.S.-citizen kids into turmoil, Washington Post, December 29, 2013

Twelve-year-old Jason Penate spent the holidays hanging close by his father. They picked out a Christmas tree and decorated the front window of their Gainesville, Va., home with candy canes, and Jason tried very hard not to think about whether his father would still be here in the new year.

Jorge Penate, a Guatemalan national who came to the United States illegally in 1997, has a hearing scheduled Monday that will determine whether he can stay in the country. A drunken driving arrest two years ago launched deportation proceedings and cast his family’s future into uncertainty.

Jason wrote a letter to the immigration judge, explaining that the three days his father was detained in 2011 “were the worst days of my life” and asking not to be separated from him again. “If he does have to leave I think every day of my life is going to be the worst,” Jason wrote.

More than 1 million illegal immigrants were deported in the past three years, a record number reflecting increased enforcement efforts under the Obama administration. The crackdown has spun the lives of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens — including children like Jason — into upheaval. Continue reading this article

Fusion Network Grills Roy Beck on Amnesty

The founder of NumbersUSA appeared on Fusion TV recently to discuss immigration “reform” with open-borders propagandist Jorge Ramos. Jorge wanted to focus on the alleged suffering of illegal alien lawbreakers but Roy argued for consideration of jobless American workers who shouldn’t be further harmed by a mass amnesty and doubled legal immigration.

I may be mis-remembering, but I recall Ramos as speaking English somewhat better in the past. Perhaps a thick Spanish accent is a plus in his new gig. These days he is a major talking head on the new diversity network Fusion which is covering some controversial subjects to appeal to the hip edgy crowd. Rolling Stone characterized Fusion as “a new English-language network aimed at young Latinos and their multicultural peers.”

Interestingly, Ramos interviewed ABC reporter Brian Ross about the refugee terrorist story, where jihadist Iraqis used America’s permissive screening procedures to enter the country. As a result, the government is pursuing “dozens” of likely bad guys. Watch the Fusion segment: Is a Broken Immigration System Allowing Terrorists into the U.S.?

The immigration anarchist was curiously concerned about public safety:

RAMOS: The real question is, Are we in danger? Is it possible that some of these refugees are among us right now and they might be planning something and we have no idea what they are or who they are?

Funny, but many Americans are more concerned about the danger of criminal gangsters like the undeported MS-13 thug, Edwin Ramos (any relation??), who murdered three members of the Bologna family in San Francisco. Plus, foreign crime syndicates have burrowed into every corner of this country: in 2008, the DoJ reported that Mexican drug trafficking organizations operated in 230 US cities, a number unlikely to have decreased. And drunk driving illegal aliens continue to kill more Americans every year.

But Jorge Ramos is worried about the danger from 70,000 Iraqi refugees rather than the 12 million or so illegal aliens, 78 percent of whom are hispanic.

Mexican Authorities Increase Sentence for Drunk Driver Who Put Jersey Woman in a Coma

We don’t see many instances of efforts toward justice coming from Mexico when the victims are American, so sightings are welcome and deserve commendation.

In 2003, 21-year-old Christina Applegate (pictured) was struck by a drunk-driving illegal alien Mexican in Franklin Township New Jersey. Newly married at the time, Christina has been in a coma ever since and lives on a feeding tube and ventilator under the care of her father.

Juan Luis Bautista, the drunk-driving illegal, was arrested, posted bail and escaped to Mexico — apparently local authorities didn’t think he was a flight risk. He was rearrested there in 2010, thanks in part to the diligence of county police who fed information to Mexican officers about Bautista’s background.

In 2011, Bautista was sentenced to 2 ½ years in a Mexican prison for the injury to Applegate, four years for use of a fraudulent driver’s license and a fine of around $600. More recently federal prosecutors decided that the punishment was insufficient for the permanent injuries caused, and added three more years to the sentence.

Of course, less than ten years for the complete destruction of a life is hardly adequate, but any increase in punishment is a move in the right direction. Bautista is not a particular threat to Mexicans so you have to conclude the the prosecutors’ act was one of decency.

This case is a pleasant change from the meddling of the Mexican government to protect its criminal exports: the murders of two Texas girls comes to mind. Jennifer Ertman, 14, and Elizabeth Pena, 16, were brutally raped and murdered in a 1993 gang initiation, after which the Mexicans went to great lengths to stop their guy Jose Medellin from being executed.

Bur we should never forget the preventable crimes allowed by Washington’s open borders. Christina Applegate got a life sentence of existing in a vegetative state.

The 2011 news segment reported the relief of Christina’s friends at the arrest of Bautista in Mexico:

Sentence increased for drunken driver in 2003 Franklin crash, Daily Journal, September 25, 2013

FRANKLIN — A Bridgeton man convicted in a 2003 alcohol-fueled car crash that put a Franklin Township woman in a decade-long coma will spend more time in a Mexican jail for the offense.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office said 32-year-old Juan Luis Bautista will serve an additional three years on top of the 6 ½ he was sentenced to in 2011.

The additional prison time was added after an appeal was filed by Mexican federal prosecutors.

Bautista fled to Mexico after he was charged with first-degree vehicular injuries in 2003. The television show “America’s Most Wanted” filmed a segment on the case in 2004. He was picked up there in 2010.

Applegate, then 22, sustained severe head injuries in the September 2003 crash. She was married and living in Franklin Township at the time. Applegate remains in a coma and is now in the care of her father in another state, authorities said. Continue reading this article

Illegal Alien DUI Killer Pleads Guilty in Virginia

Last April, Maxey Ann Lynch (pictured) was killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien as she was doing her job of Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper carrier. Her car was struck head-on by Guatemalan Santos Gabriel-Tomas driving the wrong direction, and she died later in the hospital.

Not only was his blood-alcohol content 0.19 percent (more than twice the legal limit), he also had no license to drive due to his illegal alien status.

Worse, this crime was entirely preventable because Gabriel-Tomas had been convicted in March 2012 of drunk driving, but was not deported. In a nation that cared about public safety, drunk-driving illegal aliens would be deported as a matter of law, but that is not the case here.

Now-retired Congresswoman Sue Myrick worked for years to pass the Scott Gardner Act, but with no success. As she said, the bill required, “You’re drunk, you’re driving, you’re illegal, you’re deported, period.” In 2012 Senator Chuck Grassley proposed a three-strikes requirement that would have meant deportation after three DUI arrests. However, that law would not have saved Sister Denice Mosier from a two-timer nor young Matthew Denice either.

Below, Santos Gabriel-Tomas was previously arrested but not deported.

Man pleads guilty in DUI fatality, Richmond Times-Dispatch, August 23, 2013

An intoxicated, wrong-way driver who pleaded guilty to the killing in April of a Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper carrier in South Hill had been convicted of DUI a year earlier and had never been licensed to drive in Virginia.

Santos Gabriel-Tomas, 30, an immigrant from Guatemala in the country illegally, was convicted in March 2012 of driving under the influence of alcohol in neighboring Lunenburg County. He had never acquired a license to drive, but a judge in the earlier case revoked his privileges to obtain a license for 12 months as part of his punishment, Mecklenburg County Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Allen Nash said.

After the suspension period passed, Gabriel-Tomas continued to drive without a license and was doing so when he crashed head-on April 7 into a car being driven by longtime Times-Dispatch carrier Maxey Ann Lynch, 61, who later died at VCU Medical Center. Continue reading this article

Texas Parents Face Illegal Alien Who Killed Their Daughter

This story is all too common: a previously arrested (but not deported) drunk driving illegal alien takes the life of an innocent American. Had the government repatriated Osvaldo Cerda after his several marijuana arrests, he wouldn’t have been here to kill Heather VanHoozer, a 24-year-old nursing student.

Below, the VanHoozer family in happier times: parents Alan and Debra with Heather in the center. Heather was killed by a drunk driving illegal alien a year ago.

A local TV report discussed the illegal alien aspect, unlike too many news accounts when the perps are border-jumping foreigners.

Like many average citizens faced with a preventable death at the hands of a foreigner who should have been deported, the VanHoozers are shocked and surprised that their government did so little to protect their family. But in the new globalized America, foreign lawbreakers have more rights than upstanding citizens.

Parents prepare to face daughter’s accused killer in court, WFAA, August 7, 2013

Every morning before work, and every evening after work, Alan and Debra VanHoozer stop at the cemetery on Garland Road.

The headstone is just a few feet away from away busy street. It is inscribed with three names: Alan, Debra and Heather.

It’s just not right that their daughter was the first to be buried.

“There’s nothing worse… nothing worse a parent can go through,” Alan VanHoozer said.

Heather VanHoozer died 11 months ago in a terrible crash on Centerville Road in Garland. She was 24 years old.

Police said Osvaldo Cerda, then 18, was drunk when he T-boned the car of Heather’s boyfriend. According to the police report, even after the crash, a witness saw Cerda put a beer can to his mouth, then toss it down and crush it before running away.

Police caught him not far from the scene.

“He took our pride and joy. Heather was our life,” Debra Van Hoozer said. Continue reading this article

Rwanda Genocide Perp -- Admitted as a Refugee -- Is Sentenced to Prison

In its haste to welcome the victims of the world, Washington’s rubber-stamp refugee policy has taken in a rogue’s gallery of despicable war criminals. The latest, Beatrice Munyenyezi (pictured), a commander in Rwanda’s systematic mass murder of Tutsi tribal members, is quite a piece of work, but is by no means unique in depravity.

Some of the noteworthy diverse criminals residing in America have included:

● Bosnian Sulejman Mujagic, was accused of murder and torture while an Army commander during the ethnic war in the former Yugoslavia. He was arrested in Utica in 2012, where 6500 Bosnians reside in one of the largest Bosno-diverse settlements in the country.

Gonzalo Guevara Cerritos was arrested in 2006 for being an illegal alien and also a member of the Salvadoran military death squad that brutally murdered six priests in 1989.

Kelbessa Negewo was an Ethiopian government official who participated in torture of political enemies who objected to the marxist regime. After immigrating to the US, he was later recognized in a New York City elevator by one of his torture victims.

Marko Boskic was a Serb militia triggerman who helped execute thousands of residents of Srebrenica in the 1995 massacre. Even so, he entered the US in 2000 using his real name and settle in Peabody Mass where he had numerous arrests for drunk driving and such, but was only tracked down when Boston Globe reporter Elizabeth Neuffer investigated. In 2010, the US extradited Boskic to Bosnia where he was tried and imprisoned.

Back to today’s case, where a Rwandan woman has been convicted of lying about her history of human rights abuses to enter the United States and sentenced to prison:

Rwandan who was given U.S. citizenship is jailed for 10 years for her role in country’s genocide where half a million were slaughtered, Associated Press, July 15, 2013

A woman who lied about her role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide was sentenced on Monday to ten years in prison, a fate her lawyers say is tantamount to a death sentence.

Rwanda native Beatrice Munyenyezi, from New Hampshire, remained stoic as U.S. District Judge Steven McAuliffe sentenced her to the maximum prison time. She declined her right to address the court.

Munyenyezi, 43, was convicted in February of entering the United States and securing citizenship by lying about her role as a commander of one of the notorious roadblocks in the city of Butare – where Tutsis were singled out for slaughter as they tried to evacuate.

According to some reports, a fifth of the 500,000 massacred during the Rwandan genocide were killed in Butare.

However due to the chaotic nature of the genocide, it has been difficult for experts to put exact numbers on how many died.

She also denied affiliation with any political party, despite her husband’s leadership role in the extremist Hutu militia party.

McAuliffe acknowledged she has led a crime-free and productive life since her arrival in New Hampshire in 1998 but said it was a life lived under false pretenses. Continue reading this article

MADD AWOL on DUI in Senate Amnesty Bill

How common and unpunished are drunk driving illegal aliens in America? One measure: the uncle of the President is one (pictured), and Omar Onyango is doing just fine, back at his liquor store job and in possession of his driver’s license, after a mere 45 days without it after a drunk-driving bust.

Today’s lawbreaking topic is the failure of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to criticize the Senate’s criminal-friendly amnesty bill, specifically on its drunk-driving permissiveness.

I investigated MADD for a 2008 VDARE.com article, Mothers Against Drunk Driving: Successful Reformers—Or Hypocrites from Hell?. After initial success in raising the issue and changing behavior, the organization began to see itself as more educator to wrongdoers than protector of innocents. The attitude has become, “Welcome new drunk drivers! Please sign up for our program.”

Hispanics’ cultural preference for drinking mass quantities of alcohol guarantees a long and profitable future for MADD. (Even NPR has noted, “Latinos are responsible for a disproportionate number of DWI arrests and alcohol-related car accidents.”) A fat pipeline of diverse clients from abroad is advantageous for MADD’s bottom line.

As a result of self-interest, MADD says, “No problema” to the multi-million amnesty.

MADD OK with Illegals with DUIs Staying on America’s Roads, Breitbart.com, June 18, 2013

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is refusing to fight to prevent the Senate “Gang of Eight” from allowing illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving from being granted legalized status, or amnesty.

When Judicial Watch asked a MADD spokesperson if they would stand up against provisions in the bill that allow illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving to get amnesty, and therefore keep driving on America’s roads, that spokesperson simply responded that MADD “doesn’t get involved in immigration matters.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Breitbart News that MADD’s refusal to fight against convicted drunk drivers here is ludicrous. “We know already that Obama is releasing criminal illegal aliens onto the streets,” Fitton said in an email. “This new amnesty will further harm the public safety. In many states, a misdemeanor results in a citizen losing the right to vote. Yet under this amnesty bill, a ‘misdemeanor’ won’t stop an illegal alien from getting legal status and citizenship.”

As Watchdogwire’s Marinka Peschmann detailed in an early June article, there are provisions in the Gang of Eight bill that allow drunk driver illegal aliens to get amnesty.

“On page 608 drunk drivers are welcome too if they have only been busted three times before the Gang of Eight’s bill is enacted,” Peschmann wrote, before citing the specific section of the bill text. Continue reading this article

Senate Amnesty Bill Coddles Illegal Alien Criminals

We already know that the Gang of Eight amnesty bill contains a full trough of goodies for foreign job thieves. But evidence is accumulating that favoritism toward dangerous criminal aliens is also written into the legislation, which is not exactly a new trend (see Criminal Protection Is a Historic Element of Congressional Amnesties).

Did La Raza’s cartel division help write S.744? The notion that government’s top job is to protect public safety has been diminished greatly by the open-borders extremists.

Fortunately the criminal-friendly aspect of the bill is beginning to come to light. The legislation allows a great deal of discretion to the DHS Secretary about who may be deported. For example, if a drunk driver’s removal might cause inconvenience to his US-residing familia, he could be permitted to stay, despite the obvious danger to Americans.

The open-border gang has always been squishy on public safety and particularly so on drunk driving illegal aliens, probably because hispanics disproportionately drive drunk (at least according to NPR). It’s just easier for DHS boss Janet Napolitano cover up shocking cases like the Virginia nun Denise Mosier killed by previously arrested illegal Carlos Montano who had been released from jail.

The video above mentioned a couple of preventable deaths, one being that of Phoenix Police Officer Daryl Raetz (shown below with his wife and five-year-old daughter), killed by a hit-and-run driver, an illegal alien with priors.

But to the Gang of Eight and other friends of diverse crime, the preventable deaths of Americans killed by criminal aliens are unimportant, so the plan is to lessen the immigration enforcement that protects public safety.
