An update on the case of the criminal illegal alien who murdered five people recently in Kansas and Missouri:
It was revealed in subsequent stories that law enforcement had THREE SEPARATE OPPORTUNITIES to re-deport Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino. He was originally deported about 12 years ago after making a terroristic threat, but only after serving two years in prison for the felony. (Needless to say, Obama wasn’t president then.)
Therefore, Serrano-Vitorino was known as a potentially violent felon–just the kind of person that Obama claims is at the top of the list for apprehension and deportation.
Because of allegedly scarce resources, prioritizing the apprehension of criminal illegal aliens (an obvious oxymoron) serves as Obama’s excuse for why his administration doesn’t catch and deport your ordinary “good” illegal aliens.
This alleged murderer is no choir boy. Returning after being deported is yet another felony on Serrano-Vitorino’s rap sheet. Over the past two years, this criminal was on law enforcement radar three separate times (that we know of) and all three times he allegedly just “fell through the cracks”–three different “errors” for which ICE is allegedly very sorry.
Serrano-Vitorino drove without a license or insurance, and with a defective headlight. He was also convicted of driving under the influence. He was more recently detained for domestic violence. Despite all that, he was allowed to remain here to murder and wreak mayhem. The local law enforcement authorities in Kansas said that it’s not their job to enforce immigration laws. One can hardly blame them, considering the Obama DOJ sued Sheriff Arpaio in Arizona to stop him FROM enforcing immigration law. Any questions?
Well, now the widow of one of the victims, Randy J. Nordman, is asking questions and demanding answers. She wants to know, like the family of Kate Steinle wants to know: WHY are these criminal illegal aliens allowed to be here, to come back here after being deported, to stay here, despite numerous opportunities to catch and punish them for breaking our laws?
Police in Kansas allegedly stated that when they stopped Serrano-Vitorino, they didn’t know his “immigration status.” Could that be because it would have been “racial profiling” to CHECK on his immigration status, or even to suspect that he has an “immigration status”?
Reading between the lines, one can assume that because of Obama-instituted-and-enforced “political correctness”, now five people are DEAD in MO and KS.
How many more are dead across this nation? How many more will die before the borders are finally closed?
Not surprisingly, the progressive media are upset. Oh, not that five innocents have been slaughtered–crimes which could easily have been prevented–but because these murders provide “fodder” for Trump’s “anti-immigrant bashing,” allowing him to “use” the case to “whip up national anger,” as if those who hear about these murders need Trump to goad them into reacting the way any normal human being would react (exceptions being rabid progressives on editorial boards).
Read the quoted editorial, which contains not one word of sympathy for the families of those who did not have to die, but which is concerned only with the potential political damage done to pro-illegal-alien politicians.
No doubt, some on the left will also be upset that they can’t politicize the incident for gun control purposes. The AK-47 the alleged killer used was already illegal for him to possess, what with him being an illegal alien as well as a several-times-over felon.
Here’s the most ridiculous part of the editorial. Quote:
The driving force behind the immigration problem is employers’ lack of access to low-wage labor for jobs that Americans won’t do. Migrants have little or no realistic way to get work visas. Thus, the illegal system continues to thrive.
Is this progressive “editorial board” actually arguing FOR giving work visas to persons of color so they can come to this country to work at “low-wage jobs,” like some kind of modern-day slaves?
The editorial board argues for “immigration reform,” which would presumably include giving work visas to Mexican “migrants” so they can work the “low-wage jobs that Americans won’t do.”
Let’s have a thought experiment. Let’s imagine this is the 19th century, before the abolition of slavery. The economy of the South runs on slave labor–the lowest-wage labor you can get.
Some people are arguing for the abolition of slavery, no matter what it does to the economy, because it’s the right thing to do. But others feel the pain of the South and want a solution that won’t wreck their economy.
So let’s imagine a progressive editorial board arguing that we should abolish slavery but then give “work visas” to Africans to come here and work those low-wage jobs picking the cotton that Americans won’t pick. Plantation owners can just pay the visa holders whatever amount they had previously spent on food, clothing, housing and presumably medical care for slaves. If that amounts to “low wages,” then so be it. Sound like a plan?
Back in the 21st century, the plan would be even more beneficial to the business owners, who could count on the U.S. taxpayers to feed, clothe, house, and give medical care, plus free educations, to “migrants” who work for low wages that qualify them for welfare. What a deal!
Who is stupid enough to believe that the progressives who write such nonsense seriously want these “migrants” working “low-wage jobs?”
Who believes that once those visas are issued progressives won’t instantly pivot and begin arguing for full citizenship, unionization, voting rights, and a “living wage” for these second-class persons of color?
Here’s a real solution to the problem of low-wage jobs that Americans allegedly won’t do:
Stop illegal immigration. Then businesses will have no choice but to raise wages until Americans decide that the jobs are worth doing.
But wait! That’s letting the market decide. That’s freedom. That’s capitalism!
How well we know that progressives hate capitalism, and so they pretend to argue instead for what amounts to 21st century slavery, but this time subsidized by the taxpayers.
Let’s stop letting progressives pretend that they’re on the side of poor “undocumented migrants” who just want to feed their families. Let’s cry BS on all that nonsense.
All they want is power, power, and more power.
