It’s clear that under President Obama, the United States’ ability to protect its own citizens was greatly undermined.
No, I’m not talking about the shocking rise of terrorism in the last few years, brought on by weak vetting procedures by the federal government, but the complete lack of immigration enforcement set by our former president.
Despite the clear laws we possess aimed at keeping America safe, Obama worked to undermine the authority of our border patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE. These forces work tirelessly to root our criminal aliens who seek to kill, rob, and rape Americans, not to mention flood our street with drugs. Apparently Obama wanted these people around.
Now, thanks to the uncompromising decisions by President Trump, our law enforcement agencies can actually root out these criminals and keep our cities safe. Despite the empty protests of left wing liberals, ICE is continuing its work to eject criminal aliens from our country.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 248 foreign nationals across a two-week period (between February 27 and March 10) in the states of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Delaware.
In a statement published Tuesday, ICE shared noteworthy statistics of the aforementioned 248 arrests:
- 120 (or 48%) had a conviction and/or pending charges; 88 of which had criminal convictions and 32 of which have pending criminal charges.
- 50 illegally re-entered the U.S. after previously having been deported.
- 6 have been accepted for prosecution by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices for charges including reentry after removal and document fraud.
- 18 were immigration fugitives slated for deportation by a federal immigration judge.
More details emerged describing the kinds of acts these aliens are guilty of, including sexually abusing minors, drunk driving, selling and distributing drugs, and aggravated assault. One man apprehended was charged with trying to force his girlfriend into a hot oven. Real winners here.
Yet liberals are stilling trying to undermine our government’s ability to apprehend and deport these despicable creatures. They want to make President Trump out to be an enemy of immigrant families. All the while ignoring the very clear distinction between legal immigrants and criminal aliens.
They do the same thing when we try to confront radical Islamic terror. Apparently the left thinks we are coming against all Muslims, even though most people understand the difference.
This is a part of what we call identity politics. They want you to think President Trump’s policies against criminal aliens and terrorists will hurt immigrants and Muslims. Yet it’s the liberals who can’t distinguish between the groups.
Despite all this, ICE is once again hard at work rooting out dangers to our society. This 250 captured is only the beginning. It will be a long and hard process, but they will get the job done.
Regardless of how the left tries to undermine them.
