So You Think Bush Is Enforcing Immgration Law? Think Again
The San Francisco Chronicle has exposed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as either incompetant or criminally negligent. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/07/19/MNK011MAFR.DTL&tsp=1 I appears that ICE and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) were shielding the convicted gang-banger from deportation. Usually this is incompetance, but USCIS has an unwritten policy of doing all it can, like the City of San Francisco, to protect illegals from the consquences of their illegal status. This gang-banger tried to obtain legal residency by first applying for the ongoing amnesty for Central Americans then using a fraudulent marriage to a U.S. citizen to obtain residency. Because of the unwritten rule that ICE and USCIS use of giving illegals any opportunity to stay, he stayed, and, of course, killed some Americans. But President Bush thinks murder is a family value from south of the Rio Grande and that value has been learned by ICE and USCIS. Let's get the Bushism money quote from the City and County of San Francisco's Sheriff's Department spokesman regarding their contact with ICE concerning the gang-banger "'In our communication with ICE, they specifically told us they were not placing a detainer on him,' Hirst said. 'We cannot hold people in custody without a documented reason to hold them.'" No reason to hold him? Convicted felon, illegal alien, arrested with a gun used in a double homicide? No reason? Your tax dollars at work.
