Part 1: Illegal Immigrants Killing American Citizens is NOT A "Little Thing"....Despite What A Congressman Thinks

A little while ago we discussed the terrible tragedy where a young American citizen, Kate Steinle, was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had seven felony convictions and who had been deported five times. If that was not enough heartache for Ms. Steinle’s family and friends, an Illinois Congressman, Luis Gutierrez, described her cold blooded killing as a “little thing” that got in the way of his political aims for illegal immigrants. As we observed at that time, this is just a cold hearted, despicable thing to say especially when Ms. Steinle’s parents. family members, and boy friend were in mourning for this senseless death.

But this is how far the country has fallen away from respecting those with different opinions and the rule of law. The Congressman views her death as a little thing in the context of his political aims and ambitions. Cities and the politicians across the country who operate them have decided that the rights of illegal immigrants are more important than observing current Federal law and protecting the lives of American citizens.

Thus, I thought it worthwhile to take some discussion time to identify and honor those American citizens that have suffered and died as a result of politicians who think that the the status of illegal immigrants is more important than the lives of American citizens. I am not saying that all illegal immigrants are violent or criminals, the majority are likely not.

But it is important to understand that because the Washington political class has not sealed the border, that Washington politicians have not enforced standing immigration laws in so-called “sanctuary cities,” and that local politicians give haven and refuge to illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities, many of whom are criminal elements, Americans are dying. And the mainstream media for the most part ignored or downplayed these citizen deaths to facilitate the work of people like Congressman 
Gutierrez who thinks that a single, unnecessary American citizen death at the hands of illegal immigrant, who never should have been on an American street, is a “little thing.”

1) Brian Omar Hyde illegally entered this country about seven months ago from Belize, according to recent local news reports. He is also the prime suspect in a triple homicide in Lee County, Florida. In what was described by police as a “very violent,” Hyde is suspected of killing 37-year-old Dorla Pitts, her pregnant 17-year-old daughter Starlett Pitts and the girl's boyfriend Michael Kelly Jr., 19, leaving an 18 month old child in the house unharmed. Those killed had suffered "repeated, sharp force trauma," according to the local sheriff's office. 

Fortunately, Hyde had been pulled over for driving on the wrong side of the road by Fort Myers police. At that time he was put into custody for having “visible blood” on his clothes. He was arrested for driving without a license and later booked for the murders.

Would the Congressman Gutierrez consider the victims in this triple homicide a “little thing?”

2) The Conservative Tribune website recently wrote an article on how an Ohio judge had delivered an emotional review in a case involving another illegal immigrant, Juan Razo. Mr. Razo has allegedly murdered one woman, shot another woman, and attempted to rape a 14 year old girl who was his niece.

At the hearing, Razo said that he did not have a license, passport, identification, and that his birth certificate was left behind in Mexico. The judge observed that, “I have somebody who we don’t even know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder." The judge then proceeded to set bail at a whopping $10 million.

Rather than showing pity on the victims of the heinous crimes committed by this illegal immigrant, a Hispanic support organization called HOLA put forth the justification for the murder, violence, and rape attempt because of the mental health of the suspect: “Thus, this is not an issue about immigration; rather it is about the problems associated with adults with mental illness,” Veronica Dahlberg of HOLA said. “We are disappointed to see leaders exploiting this tragedy to promote a political agenda.”

I am sorry but Ms. Dahlberg is sounding like Congressman  Gutierrez, the victims of the violent crimes are just “little things” when it comes to the rights and mental health of illegal immigrants. If the American political class were doing their jobs, one American citizen would be still alive, another would have been hurt, and a 14 year old would not have an attempted rape in her memory. But these are probably just “little things” when it comes to Congressman Gutierrez.

3) The Washington Examiner ran an article  by Kelly Cohen on July 30, 2015 that described how Juan Razo, the illegal immigrant we just discussed, actually was in the custody of law enforcement but U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials told the the local sheriff's department to let Razo go.

The Feds told the sheriff to release him since although he was here illegally he had not committed a crime yet. Now he has committed not one crime but a series of crimes and a family is burying a loved one simply because the Federal government was not doing its job.

4) CNN recently reported that Jamiel Shaw, Sr. would be introducing Presidential candidate Donald Trump at an Arizona political rally. Why Mr. Shaw? Mr. Shaw’s son, a standout Los Angeles high school football player, was gunned down in 2008 by an illegal immigrant gangbanger.

In Mr. Shaw’s opinion: "He's [Trump] speaking for the dead. He's speaking for my son. He's speaking for the people who can't speak for themselves that demand that somebody do something."

Would Congressman Gutierrez consider the murder of Mr. Shaw’s son a “little thing?”

5) Ever Olivos-Gutierrez has been an illegal immigrant living in this country since 2004. He was arrested in 2007 but was released before the Feds got around to picking him up and taking him into custody for being in this country illegally.

As a result of this incompetence, this illegal immigrant went forth and incurred three DUI convictions and was still not put into custody and deported. But the fourth time was not the charm as Olivos-Gutierrez was recently arrested AGAIN when he was convicted for a fourth time for DUI that resulted in the death of a 17 year old man. Olivos-Gutierrez was found to have a blood-alcohol level that was three times the legal limit that obviously contributed to his speeding at 80 MPH through four red lights before he killed the young man.

Would CongressmaGutierrez consider the unnecessary death of the 17 year a “little thing?”

That will do it for today, more examples of Americans suffering at the hands of violent and illegal immigrants. Again, this is not to say that all illegal immigrants are violent criminals, most are not. However, the victims of this government’s inability to enforce the laws of the land and protect innocent Americans from the imported violence of illegal immigrant criminals needs to be part of any discussion on immigration reform. 

Their deaths and the suffering and mourning of their families are not “little things.” They are victims of Washington’s inability or unwillingness to seal our borders and do their jobs when it comes to rounding up, departing or detaining violent criminals who often cross our borders numerous times with impunity.
