Activists Fret Over “Which Crimes Are Eligible For Deportation” Under Trump

Begin ringing the warning bells, citizens. Donald Trump is coming and he’s going to deport your “undocumented immigrant” friends… for no darned reason at all. That seems to be the message coming out of the amnesty camp these days. At Route Fifty they have an article this week by Teresa Wiltz (originally published at Stateline) which raises the ghost of immigration fights past. Will there be a newly enhanced immigration force? If so, they may be planning to deport all sorts of people who really aren’t such bad eggs.

Wiltz starts off by telling the story of Mayra Machado, who was picked up during a traffic stop in Arkansas. An unpaid traffic ticket led to a quick background search which revealed she’d previously been taken in for writing bad checks. Oh, and she’s also in the country illegally, so now she’s facing imminent deportation to El Salvador. The author adds in another tragic tale of a guy from Kenya who came here on a student visa but overran the expiration date. (He also did nine years in detention after a robbery charge.) He’s being deported also. That leads to these observations:

The two situations illustrate the variety of crimes that can get immigrants detained and deported, even after they have served a jail or prison sentence for the crime — and even if they are in the country legally. And while the federal government says it targets noncitizens who are serious or repeat offenders, immigrants with minor offenses often are deported.

Immigrants with criminal records may soon come under increased scrutiny. Republican President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to immediately deport “the people that are criminal and have criminal records.” There are, he said, “a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country.”

All of the code words in this article are predictable and common among amnesty proponents. The government is “targeting” people. Some of those being deported are only charged with “minor crimes.” No matter what Trump winds up doing on immigration you can expect to see these sorts of stories repeated ad nauseam in the press, always highlighting the one person they find who came from truly tragic circumstances in their original home and who committed the least serious offenses possible.

  1. Yep, now the circle jerk begins, because some of the lefty’s in that circle don’t know what bad is. Because of their PC/CM training by the neocons.

    • Like Obama’s new house in an upscale area of California where there are no blacks or Hispanics?? Will they bring down the property values like nice places in other cities that lose their shirts when riff raff move in??? Just wondering!!! AH HAHA I know a judge that lives there–he is NOT a happy camper!!

      • Nah – obama is staying in DC —– He plans to make life miserable for trump and anyone who hates and doesn’t support the NWO….

  2. What do you expect from snowflakes? You get more snow! Illegal is so harsh, they’ll use undocumented. No matter how hard they cry, the same votes that put Obama in office has put Trump there too.

    • Did you know that judges don’t even collect the fines for illegal entry – on the books it’s a fifty dollar fine for the first entry and after that even more – they just put ten dollars towards the CVF yet they spend thousands on smugglers to bring them here – then – they get resettlement checks – welfare – food stamps and the biggest one yet —- SS—–and they claim it’s going broke…..

  3. Hello authors: When a person enters another country ILLEGALLY…they have at that point~ committed a crime . Hence the term “ILLEGAL”.

  4. Obviously the term illegal is a foreign concept to the liberals. Has as little meaning to them as the Constitution. What these idiots will never understand is once the concept of a nation of laws is gone there will be no nation. Only a spot on the map occupied by various “tribes”. There will be no more “golden eggs” as the goose will be dead. It will be interesting to see what these idiots do then.

  5. the liberal P.C. snowflakes do not not believe that crimes like illegally crossing the border over and over again, raping and killing people, running drugs,etc. are crimes serious enough to seal the border or to deport any one. after all the Democrats need them to keep them in office.

    • The liberal PC snowflakes know that keeping these illegal aliens here and having them vote either via amnesty or voter fraud is the only way to replenish the ranks of the Democraps, whose voter base has plummeted in numbers for the past 8 years.

  6. It goes without saying that if you enter this country with any intent to enter without documentation and permission then you enter ILLEGALLY. In the 60’s at this time every year in black and white TV no less the immigration service has public service notices to register ANNUALLY with the INS. I have not seen those since perhaps 1970 but they used to run all the time INS STILL requires aliens to register but does not enforce it any more. Here are some cut and pastes from MEXICO’s civil code regarding immigration. What are you Mexicans bitching about our code us much more lenient than your laws. We are just trying to align ourselves according to NAFTA ha ha! READ BELOW and see how you might relate if you wanted to move to Mexico. By the way our neighbors tot he north don’t want US either! Eh!

    – Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)
    – Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)
    – Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)
    – The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38)
    – Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)
    – Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)• – Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:
    – Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)
    – Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)
    – Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121).
    – Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,
    – “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)
    – Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
    – Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126) Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:
    – A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)
    – Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)

  7. Why can’t the criteria for deportation be simplified? Why not deport anyone who has committed any crime? Why not deport anyone who is here illegally? To me, a crime is a crime which should not have been committed.

  8. I have read several recent articles from “alternative” media (i.e. Brietbart, etc.) that says Trump is planning .to strip citizenship from “activists” (anyone who disagrees with him or are registered Democrats). He doesn’t have that authority, but that doesn’t mean he wont try.

    According to my attorney, I am in a rather unique and precarious position. I was born in the U.S. of a U.S. father and I have the long form birth certificate to prove it. However, my mother was born in the Dominican Republic of an American Father, but a British mother (Falkland Islands). The Dominicans considered her a citizen until the mid ’60s. My Great Gramdmother was born in Sydney and Great Grandfather in London.

    My attorney says that the government could argue (and lose after a very expensive trial) that I’m not really an American.

  9. Who gives a frigging shit about your opinion or your assine “fretting”?? Why don’t YOU take your friends to your house, feed them, clothes them and put a roof over their heads. And, and you get to pay for all of YOUR undocumented friends costs. I for one will not be paying for a bunch of criminals from Mexico or where ever. It’s a CRIME moron to be in this country illegally. So big mouth, start collecting your compadres and start taking care of them.

  10. They’re here ILLEGALLY it’s a CRIME and that should be all you need, so they have been here a long time stealing from the AMERICAN TAX PAYER doesn’t make them Mr or Mrs Nice Guy so they can stay. F%^k these CRIMINALS I’m not in MEXICO stealing from the MEXICAN TAX PAYERS.

  11. lets just send them all back that way we don’t have to pick and choose who is good and who isn’t and besides illegal means just that.

  12. Remember resendez – they failed for years to deport him – even though I had set him up a couple of times in Laredo – Judges let him go after lawyers fought for the guy’s rights…DEPORT THEM ALL…..

  13. I fret that the past decades DC has set the precedent that there is no crime in breaking the law, especially the supreme law of the land – the Constitution. That has filtered down to all the fringe groups and been supported by gubmint.

  14. We already have our own criminals who were released early where crime escalated dramatically. We don’t need anymore illegals added to the pack.
