Crimes committed by illegal aliens are crimes, that for the most part, that are almost entirely preventable. The problem is that our elites support cheap labor. Unfortunately, that lust for low paid help means that your life and liberty and property are not being protected. Our open borders even allow those that we have previously deported to come back to the U.S. and some of them commit more crimes.
The Las Cruces Sun-News in New Mexico relays the following story:
DEMING Customs and Border Patrol agents apprehended a previously deported sex offender Monday night in Deming, according to a news release.
Servando Valenzuela-Corchado, 27, of Mexico was stopped by the agents at a local motel in Deming. Criminal background checks revealed his previous conviction on charges of “sexual contact/no consent,” the release stated.
In July 2005, Valenzuela-Corchado pleaded guilty to the charge and served six months in jail in Boulder, Colo., according to the release. Since the offense was a crime involving moral turpitude, he was deported from the United States upon his release from jail.
Valenzuela-Corchado was being detained at the Luna County Detention Facility and will face felony charges for re-entry into the United States. His formal removal from the United States will be reinstated after he serves a jail sentence for felony re-entry and is returned to Mexico.
From Indiana, we get this story of a previous deported criminal who came back and committed another crime.
A Mexican national living in Indiana who has repeatedly returned to the United States after being deported will serve 62 months in prison for illegally re-entering the United States.
That prison time will come on top of time Juan Mata-Talavera, 37, is serving for a felony battery conviction, Justice Department officials said Monday.
Mata-Talavera pleaded guilty Friday to re-entry by an illegal immigrant after previously being deported, only to return to the U.S. and commit felony battery.
Mata-Talavera was convicted of battery in 1998, which under immigration law meant he could never return to the United States without permission.
But later that year, he returned to the United States without permission and was deported in 1998 and again in 1999.
He came back to Indiana once again and was convicted on a felony battery charge in 2005. He is serving a four-year sentence in the Indiana Department of Correction for that conviction.
Calling for the securing of our southern border isn’t a political slogan. It is a common sense realization that we need a fences, vehicle barriers, boots on the ground, sensors, and drones to stop undesirable people from entering our country and committing crimes. Deportation is only one part of the solution. Keeping those already deported out of our nation is another part of the equation that our government is only now grudgingly acknowledging as more Americans call for border security.
