Deport illegal criminals? Maybe later

A starkly candid article from MSM about the Fed's inability to deport illegal immigrants convicted of felonies:

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Ezeiquiel Lopez already had a rap sheet that stretched all the way to Texas when, police said, he shot Kenosha County, Wisconsin, Deputy Sheriff Frank Fabiano in the head, killing him.

Lopez, 45, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was free at the time of the May shooting, after having been jailed for two prior violent crimes. By law, he should have been deported, but federal immigration authorities didn't know he had been in custody, and state and local police didn't tell them.

The case isn't an exception. Fewer than half the foreigners convicted of crimes in the U.S. -- most of whom are in the country illegally -- are deported after serving their sentences, according to the Homeland Security Department's inspector general.

Maybe the dunces in the Senate will realize that there are more pressing issues to be addressed before worrying about bringing people 'out of the shadows'.

And Graham, Kyl, Lott, and McCain can't understand why the American people stood up against their recent amnesty bill.

If you can't ENFORCE THE BORDERS, CAN'T ENFORCE THE LAWS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS...you will get Americans giving you a smackdown.

When I read stories like this, I go ballistic.

Do you really think the Senate is going to address the important issues such as this?

Highly unlikely.

Good ol' Homeland Security. 'Nuff said.

Maybe we are back to square one after the failed immigration bill, but at least at square one we weren't giving legal status to criminals.


How stupid are our elected officials?
