Illegal immigration rages on as one of the most important issues in American politics.
Democrats have tried for years to convince the American people that illegal immigration isn’t a problem at all.
But one manhunt proves once and for all that the immigration problem is a national emergency.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is on a manhunt for two illegal aliens who are suspected of murdering a 14-year-old girl in Maryland.
Last year, Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar were arrested for attempted murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges to their affiliation with the violent street gang MS-13, whose chilling moniker is “rape, control, kill.”
ICE requested that Prince George’s County Detention Center of Maryland hold onto the suspects for 48 hours so they could be picked up by ICE.
Both Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar are illegal aliens who had been scheduled for deportation, but predictably did not comply with a court order and disappeared into the country.
However, Prince George’s County authorities denied ICE’s request and released Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar.
Shortly thereafter, the two illegal aliens were prime suspects in the murder of 14-year-old Ariana Funes-Diaz.
ICE released a statement in light of her murder:
“Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate.”
Sadly, this situation is not unique.
Despite the false Democrat narrative that illegal aliens are more law-abiding than American citizens, there are many felon illegal aliens on the loose, most of which having been deported multiple times.
The immigration system is broken and Democrats refuse to work with Donald Trump to fix it.
Over 90% of asylum claims are bogus, yet the asylum courts remain backed up, and there aren’t enough facilities to house all of the detainees while they await their asylum hearing.
This has led to thousands and thousands of illegal aliens being released into the country on the hopes that they will show up for their asylum claim.
This is ridiculous.
Most don’t even show up for their court hearing, as was the case for Fuentes-Ponce.
Democrats won’t release funding for a border barrier and more facilities and resources for detainees.
The lack of resources have led to quarantines and infectious disease breakouts in detainee facilities.
Liberals also created sanctuary cities where local law enforcement won’t cooperate with ICE.
Non-cooperation led to Funes-Diaz’s tragic murder in Maryland.
Regardless of the crime statistics among illegal immigrants, they shouldn’t be committing any crimes.
Also, the left doesn’t even want Trump sending detainees to sanctuary cities.
The only other alternative is open borders.
The Democrats won’t say it because it’s wildly unpopular, but that’s what the hard left really want.
Even the New York Times is beginning to question the far left’s tack toward illegal immigration.
Until the left becomes more concerned with Americans and less concerned with importing a new voting base, the problem is only going to get worse.
