Illegal Immigration Is Not A Victimless Crime, It is A Failure of The Obama Administration

We almost always protest when government and the American political class try to do something. We object for two basic reasons:
  1. The more government and politicians do, the less freedom and liberty we have.
  2. The more government and politicians do, the more they screw up life, often making an existing problem worse with their “solutions” while wasting money and liberty in the process.
In our view, we would like government and politicians do far less with the chance that they would actually resolve a problem once in awhile. Instead, they do a lot of things, getting all of them wrong instead of focusing on a few issues and maybe resolving one of them. 

In our view, one of the prime functions and responsibilities should be to protect Americans. I think if they could do that well then we could forgive them if they did not try to do some of the other inane and unnecessary thinks they do that never work out while wasting taxpayer wealth in the process. 

However, even though their are laws on the books to protect us from illegal immigrant criminals and non-criminals, the Obama administration has decided that these are not laws but merely “suggestions.” relative to illegal immigration. We have previous related on how this adminsitration admitted in Congressional hearings that it has released tens of thousands of criminal illegal immigrants into American society where they have committed thousands and thousands of new crimes against American citizens:

We have also reported on how the Obama administration’s inability or non-desire to rid the country of illegal immigrant criminals, many, many American citizens have been maimed and killed by illegal immigrants that have not been deported or confined or have been deported and confined but Obama released them back out to prey on American citizens:

Today, we will review the sad cases of other innocent Americans who have been killed because Obama has refused to enforce current immigration laws,  proving once again that illegal immigration is NOT a victimless crime (note: these sad cases of suffering American families comes from the Fair US website):

- Tess Tranchant of Virginia Beach was a 16 year old that was killed on March 30, 2007 when an illegal immigrant, Alfredo Ramos rammed into the back of Ms. Tranchant’s car that was stopped at a red light. Ramos was drunk and speeding when he rammed the car and killed her. He had a history of criminal activity and convictions but since Virginia Beach fashions itself as a sanctuary city that ignores current immigration laws, he was never taken into custody by local officials and deported. He was charged with two counts of manslaughter, Ms. Tranchant’s friend, sitting in the passenger seat was also killed, and he got a sentence of 40 years in prison.

- Sarah Root, 21, of Omaha, was killed in January, 2016 when her car was rammed into by Eswin Mejia, an illegal immigrant from Honduras. Mejia was street racing when he hit Ms. Root. She had just graduated from Bellevue University with a 4.0 GPS and had a bright future in front of her. The town where she was killed is also a sanctuary city which has policies that restrict the execution of Federal immigration laws. Mejia was charged with homicide but somehow got bail which was he posted and disappeared, depriving Ms. Root’s family of closure over the murder of their daughter.

- Shayley Estes was killed in 2015 in Phoenix by an illegal immigrant from Russia, Igor Zubko. Ms. Estes had gotten an order of protection against Zubko a week and half prior to the murder but he still invaded her home and murdered her. He had overstayed his visa which enabled him to commit the murder for which he faces first degree murder charges.

- Roberto Gallo was an unlicensed driver and illegal immigrant from Honduras but lived in sanctuary city of San Francisco which protected him from Federal immigration laws. He ended up killing second year law student Drew Rosenberg when Gallo ran him over three times. Unbelievably and disgracefully, even though Gallo was found guilty vehicular manslaughter, he was sentenced to only six months in jail AND was released after serving only 43 days. The Federal government refused to even deport him until Mr. Rosenberg’s family’s activism finally got Gallo deported three years later.

Don Rosenberg, Drew’s dad, summed up our feelings on the function, and failure, of government perfectly: “The number one responsibility of the federal government is to protect the citizenry. We have been betrayed by successive administrations who have allowed campaign contributions and votes to supersede that responsibility with the result being the deaths of tens of thousands of our loved ones.” Well said.

- Grant Ronneback, age 21, was murdered by illegal immigrant, Apolinar Altamirano, in January, 2015, over a pack of cigarettes when Mr. Ronnebeck was working his job at a convenience store. Sadly, Altamirano was out on bond from a previous conviction while the Obama administration tried to decide whether he should be deported. Steve Ronnebeck, Grant’s father also had some sorrowful insights to his son's unnecessary murder: “My son's death was completely preventable. Obama's immigration policies cost my son his life.”

The article goes on to document some other atrocities and affronts to Americans and rule of law: 
  • Cecil Burrows, an illegal immigrant from India, is scheduled to be deported after three years in prison for organizing a gang rape in his home in 2012.
  • Two illegal Salvadoran immigrants and gang members were convicted of murder in Virginia.
  • Mauricio Morales-Caceres, an illegal immigrant and MS-13 gang member from El Salvador was sentenced to life in prison in Maryland to life in prison for the stabbing death of another Salvadoran. 
  • Juan Carlos Sepulveda-Castro, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for threatening people with an assault rifle in Idaho despite the stupid and inane law that prohibits illegal immigrants from owning a firearm.
  • Eleven illegal immigrants, all members of the Salvadoran MS-13 gang, were convicted of a series of crimes including murder in New Jersey in the spring of 2016.
  • Illegal immigrants, Reinol Vergara and Edson Benitez, pled to second degree murder when they invaded the home of a 90 year Mnnesota man whom they beat up and left to bleed to death while they ransacked his home.
  • Another Salvadoran illegal immigrant, Mauricio Morales-Caceres, was convicted of first degree murder in Maryland in April, of 2016.
  • Juan Razo, a Mexican illegal immigrant in Painesville, Ohio, pleaded guilty to a life sentence to a series of crimes that included the shooting death of a 60-year old woman, the attempted rape of a 14-year old girl, kidnapping and burglary. 
As often with Obama, the rule of law is merely a suggestion to him and his political ambitions. And as often happens when the law is broken, Americans die and American families mourn. Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime. It is just another failure of the Washington political class who has failed miserably in this area to carry out a basic function of government, protect those that it governs.
