"ICE deports Polish fugitive wanted for manslaughter"

Hi Gang:
Once again my commentary is based on information that was provided by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on its official website.  I wrote an article for the CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) website about the news release and have provided a copy of the CAPS article below.
The ICE press release was posted on September 20, 2012 and touted the successful deportation of Dariusz Wietochaa, citizen of Poland back to his native country after he managed to hide in plain sight in the United States for more than two decades!  The alien in this case had some serious motivation for running the U.S. / Mexican border back in 1991- he was wanted by Polish police officials for leaving the scene of a fatal accident that resulted when he violated motor vehicle laws in Poland.
This case addresses an issue that most politicians refuse to talk about, the fact that aliens who evade the inspections process may well be motivated to enter the United States illegally and without detection because they are fugitives from justice in other countries or are heading to the United States with the intention of violation our laws.  The opponents of border security and the enforcement of America’s immigration laws, folks who I have come to refer to as immigration anarchists, often make the false argument that no one is illegal.  The term illegal means an action that is in violation of law.  The immigration laws have two primary purposes- to protect American lives and protect Americans’ jobs.  Both goals are certainly understandable and it is unfathomable that anyone would oppose laws that were enacted to achieve those two objectives.  
The responsibility of the CBP (Customs and Border Protection) Inspectors at ports of entry is to prevent the entry of aliens into the United States whose presence would be problematic.  The laws they enforce are utterly and totally blind as to race, religion or ethnicity and only make one distinction- the distinction between citizens of the United States and those who are not citizens (aliens).
It is important to understand that an alien who evades the inspection process mandated by our immigration laws may have multiple reasons for entering the United States surreptitiously. The inspections process is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens into the United States whose prosence would be harmful. Title 8, United States Code, Section 1182 enumerates the various categories of aliens who are to be excluded from the United States. A review of those categories makes the intention and importance of our immigration laws, our borders and the inspections process crystal clear.
According to information contained in the ICE news release, Mr. Wietochaa not only succeeded in entering the United States surreptitiously but in somehow remaining in the United States for more than 20 years as an illegal alien even after he was convicted of committing a felony in the United States!
The ICE news release noted that he had committed a number of crimes including the distribution of the illegal drug, Ecstacy, for which he was convicted in 2004.  It is likely that the crimes he committed injured or negatively impacted others in the United States, yet he likely worked illegally in the United States between committing crimes and was apparently only arrested when it was determined that Poland wanted him returned to Poland so that he could be prosecuted.
Certainly it is a good thing that ICE finally arrested this individual and that he was deported- but it is interesting that ICE is willing to publicize a case that shows how easy it is for hard core criminals to not only enter the United States but hide in plain sight for decades! 
Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!

If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing 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 Polish fugitive wanted for manslaughter

On September 20, 2012 ICE’s Chicago office issued a press release that heralded the deportation of a Dariusz Wietocha, a 43 year old citizen of Poland back to his native country so that he could be prosecuted for allegedly violating motor vehicles that resulted in two pedestrians being struck by the vehicle he was driving.  As a consequence of that accident, one of the pedestrians died and the other was injured.

According to the press release:

An arrest warrant was issued for Wietocha Aug. 30, 2004, by the Bialystok Regional Court in Poland in connection with a fatal traffic accident that killed one person and injured a second victim. According to the warrant, on Dec. 28, 1990, Wietocha was driving in Bialystok when he violated traffic regulations and hit two pedestrians, killing one. Wietocha then fled the scene of the accident.

Wietocha entered the United States by illegally crossing the Mexican border in 1991. He has an extensive criminal history in the United States, including a felony conviction in 2004 in the Northern District of Illinois for possessing Ecstasy with the intent to distribute.

In June ERO received information that Wietocha might be living in the Chicago area and that he was wanted for the crime of manslaughter in Poland. On July 17, ERO Fugitive Operations Unit officers arrested Wietocha near his Schaumburg residence and took him into ICE custody.

It is important to understand that an alien who evades the inspection process mandated by our immigration laws may have multiple reasons for entering the United States surreptitiously.  The inspections process is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens into the United States whose presence would be harmful.

In this case, Wietocha not only fled the scene of the crime but his country altogether, in an effort to evade law enforcement authorities.  Notwithstanding the fact that he had entered the United States illegally and was even convicted of committing a drug related felony in 2004 he managed to remain in the United States until he was finally deported back to Poland on September 20, 2012 more than two decades after he fled his native Poland and ran the U.S. Mexican border.

It is unfathomable that even after being convicted of possessing Ecstasy with the intent to distribute it that he was apparently not deported from the United States but somehow managed to be released back onto the streets of Illinois.  It should probably be presumed that this was likely the result of the attitude of the political leaders of Illinois that immigration laws are optional.  Illinois is a so-called “Sanctuary State” where immigration laws are generally ignored.

The press release continues:

“This individual snuck across the Mexican border to escape justice in Poland for the crimes he committed there,” said Ricardo Wong, ERO Chicago field office director. “On a daily basis, ICE protects public safety by arresting and removing international fugitives who pose a threat to our communities.”

It is a bit ironic that a high-ranking manager at ICE would note that criminal aliens such as the alien that served as the basis for the press release pose a threat to the communities where they live but blithely ignored the fact that it took more than 20 years for ICE to arrest this criminal and deport him pursuant to a criminal arrest warrant issued in Poland.  You have to wonder if any efforts would have made to locate and apprehend him if Polish authorities had not issued their warrant.

Under Title 8, United States Code, Section 1324, a section of law that s contained within the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), it is a felony to aid, abet, encourage or induce aliens to enter our country illegally or remain in our country illegally.

Unlike the laws of nature, man’s laws are meaningless unless they are enforced.  It is inconceivable that politicians are not only not prosecuted for violating immigration laws that were enacted in order to protect American lives and the jobs of Americans, but that they are actually able to win re-election!

All too many of our fellow Americans fail to vote- but our obligation as citizens goes beyond the voting booth.

Failures of the vast majority of the citizens of our country to make their demands known to their elected representatives have empowered and emboldened many elected representatives to represent those with deep pockets who make the massive campaign contributions and all but ignore the great majority of their constituents.

For those of our citizens who are infuriated by the current circumstances and want to know who to blame, here is a suggestion- if you are not communicating with your elected representatives and making your concerns known on a routine basis, look in the mirror!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!
