"ICE deports Los Angeles-area gang member wanted for murder in El Salvador"

Hi Gang:

Today’s commentary is based upon an article I recently wrote for the CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization website).  My CAPS article was, itself, prompted by a news release that was posted on May 24, 2012 by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) that touted the arrest and deportation of Tarsis Dodamin Quintero–Sanchez, an illegal alien from El Salvador who had been previously deported from the United States on four previous occasions and is now wanted in his native El Salvador for his alleged role in the shooting death of a victim in El Salvador nearly five years ago. 

The fact that this violent thug could so easily illegally reenter the United States makes it clear that no matter how secure Ms Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security claims our borders are, in point of fact, our borders are not secure enough!  It would certainly seem that our border now acts as a huge revolving door, enabling illegal aliens and the criminals and terrorists among them, to easily return to the United States no matter how many times they may be deported!

Quintero-Sanchez, the illegal alien upon whose arrest and deportation the ICE news release was predicated clearly posed a threat to the members of the community in which he lived while he managed to hide in plain sight.  Even while hiding in the United States to evade capture and prosecution in his native El Salvador, he continued to commit crimes within the United States.  Yet the head of DHS, an agency I have, for obvious reasons, come to refer to as being the Department of Homeland Surrender continues making public appearances claiming that our borders are secure!  She has also claimed that “Spillover violence” from Mexico is not a problem!  For Ms Napolitano, nothing about our porous borders or failures to effectively enforce our immigration laws is a problem. 

Perhaps it could be said that for Ms Napolitano issues concerning immigration law enforcement and border security are matters of mind over matter- if she doesn’t mind these failures, then it doesn’t matter!

The administration needs to go back to basics and read the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Title 8, United States Code, Section 212, is contained within the Immigration and Nationality Act, and enumerates the various categories of aliens who are statutorily ineligible to enter the United States, will provide a clear prospective as to the intention and extreme importance of our nation’s immigration laws. Among the categories of aliens who are supposed to be kept out of the United States are aliens with dangerous communicable diseases, aliens who suffer serious mental illness and are prone to violence, aliens who are convicted felons, aliens who fugitives from justice in other countries, aliens who are human traffickers and drug smugglers, aliens who are war criminals and aliens who have committed human rights violations. Also aliens who are engaged in terrorism and espionage are among those who are, by law, supposed to be prevented from entering our country. 

It must therefore be presumed that aliens who seek to evade the inspections process that is mandated by our laws to protect our citizens and our country from aliens described in the section of law I noted above are members of one or more classes of excludible aliens.  Furthermore, records of entry are not created when aliens are not inspected when the enter the United States, creating additional national security vulnerabilities.

What seems to be missing from most discussions about illegal immigration is the simple and fundamental fact that the purpose of our nation’s immigration laws is to protect American lives and protect American jobs!
Currently the entire immigration system lacks integrity and the many failures of the federal government to instill meaningful integrity into the enforcement an administration of our immigration laws creates a serious threat to national security.

If our government’s failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation! 

All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!

We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.

This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!

ICE deports Los Angeles-area gang member wanted for murder in El Salvador

An ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) news release
from May 24, 2012 reported on the arrest and formal deportation
(removal) of Tarsis Dodamin Quintero–Sanchez, an illegal alien from El
Salvador who was wanted in his native country for the murder of Oscar
Oswaldo Reyes-Alvarado.  A warrant for Quintero-Sanchez was issued by
law enforcement authorities in El Salvador in September 2007 charging
him with that murder that allegedly occurred on September 16, 2007 in
Ciudad Delgado, El Salvador.  Purportedly Quintero- Sanchez was one of
three assailants who pumped nine rounds into their victim.  
Additionally, it is charged that Quintero-Sanchez is a member of the
violent transnational national gang known as the “18th Street Gang.”

Beyond the obvious information contained in the ICE news release
announcing the arrest and removal of a dangerous illegal alien from the
United States, it is significant to give some thought to a few other
issues a review of the news release raises.  The criminal alien in this
case was previously deported from the United States in 2000, subsequent
to his having been convicted of committing several felonies including
robberies in 1993 and 1995.  Our supposedly secure borders were not
secure enough to prevent his re-entry into the United States.

Qintero-Sanchez had been arrested, charged and convicted of
“vandalism” in Los Angeles, California.  While the nature of this crime
was not expounded upon in the ICE news release, generally the crime of
vandalism is not considered a “serious crime.”  However it was the local
or state law enforcement officials who notified ICE about the
conviction of Quintero-Sanchez for his latest crime enabling ICE to take
the appropriate action and ultimately a dangerous murder suspect was
returned to face justice in his home country rather than simply be
released on the streets of an American city where his presence obviously
would have posed a serious threat to members of the community where he
had been living prior to his arrest for his most recent criminal
activities.

Advocates for open borders and the non-enforcement of our nation’s
immigration laws ignore the fundamental fact that our immigration laws,
at their foundation, have two highly important goals:  to protect
American lives and protect American jobs.  Aliens who violate our
nation’s borders and immigration laws may well have far more nefarious
intentions than to simply do work Americans cannot afford to do for the
meager wages that illegal aliens are expected to accept.  A significant
proportion of illegal aliens seek to enter the United States because
they are fugitives from justice in another country.  Such was clearly
the case where Tarsis Dodamin Quintero–Sanchez was concerned.

In many instances the victims of the crimes perpetrated by ethnic
gang members of the same ethnicity as are their assailants.  Once again
we can certainly consider that the victim of Quintero-Sanchez was also a
member of the Latino community in their native El Salvador.  Thus it
would appear that the claim that politicians who seek the mythical
“Latino vote” must vote for pathways to United States citizenship for
illegal aliens is a false claim not grounded in reality but rather
grounded in the greed of those who stand to benefit by the exploitation
of illegal aliens- and there is certainly no shortage of those who feed
at that lucrative but illegal and immoral trough!

Title 8, United States Code, Section 212,
is contained within the Immigration and Nationality Act, and enumerates
the various categories of aliens who are statutorily ineligible to
enter the United States, will provide a clear prospective as to the
intention and extreme importance of our nation’s immigration laws. 
Among the categories of aliens who are supposed to be kept out of the
United States are aliens with dangerous communicable diseases, aliens
who suffer serious mental illness and are prone to violence, aliens who
are convicted felons, aliens who fugitives from justice in other
countries, aliens who are human traffickers and drug smugglers, aliens
who are war criminals and aliens who have committed human rights
violations.  Also aliens who are engaged in terrorism and espionage are
among those who are, by law, supposed to be prevented from entering our
country.

Simply stated, our immigration laws are designed to protect us and
the time has come for these laws to be effectively and routinely
enforced.
