YOUR OPINION: Up the Sentencing Anti on Illegal Immigrants Convicted of Crimes That Harm U.S. Citizens
By Ilene Davis, CFP // August 2, 2019
under previous administrations 'temporary protected status' for migrants wasn’t temporary
I am getting so tired of reading these stories. Enough is enough.
According to immigration officials as reported in an article from Liberty Headlines, an illegal immigrant pedophile from El Salvador, in the US under temporary protected status (TPS), was arrested and now faces charges for the first-degree rape of a child.
His TPS had expired in 2010, but he failed to obey deportation orders. He is now being charged with three counts of rape of a child dating back to 2014.
This scumbag is not the only person illegally in the country, ordered to leave at least once, if not multiple times, that has harmed American citizens.
TPS allowed nearly 200,000 El Salvadorans access to the U.S. As its name suggests, TPS is ostensibly a short-term humanitarian benefit that lets foreign nationals stay while their home countries recover from catastrophes such as civil wars, natural disasters or epidemics.
However, under previous administrations, TPS status wasn’t temporary. For more than 300,000 total immigrants, deportation was deferred entirely.
Fortunately, President Donald Trump is now trying to change that. In 2018, the Department of Homeland Security announced it would remove the temporary legal status these migrants had enjoyed for almost two decades.
I propose a simple solution to protect America. Any person in this country illegally who commits a crime that harms an American citizen either physically or financially will be in jeopardy for the death sentence.
And if they have been ordered to leave and are still here, they lose their right to due process.
