Suspect In Double Murder Was Out Free Pending Deportation Hearing

I don’t want to hear another word about this administration cracking down on illegals.  Try telling that the the families of the murder victims.

A fatal federal red-tape delay may have left a suspected illegal alien accused of gunning down two people at a Lawrence birthday party free to roam the country while awaiting a March 2011 deportation hearing, the Herald has learned.

Dominican immigrant Fernando Guerrero-Lara, 27, was awaiting a March 7 preliminary removal hearing in U.S. Immigration Court in Harlingen, Texas, when authorities say he and a second triggerman unleashed a bullet bloodbath at a Labor Day birthday bash at La Guira Restaurant on Broadway in Lawrence.

Guerrero-Lara, charged in Texas with violating immigration law, was scheduled to appear at a so-called master calendar hearing on March 7, a preliminary step toward deportation, said Kathryn Mattingly, a spokeswoman for the Executive Office for Immigration Review.

When he and co-defendant Johan Saintclair, 30, were busted, Guerrero-Lara coughed up to cops he was the subject of an “arrest of alien” warrant issued Aug. 12.

Mattingly declined to elaborate on why the Department of Homeland Security was trying to give Guerrero-Lara the boot and referred questions regarding why he wasn’t being detained to Harold Ort, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Ort would only say, “An ICE detainer has been placed on Fernando Guerrero-Lara and we are aware of Johan Manuel Saint Clair (sic) and will take appropriate action as the situation warrants.”

How comforting.

Raaacist Boston PD Participating In ICE Program Aimed At Deporting Illegals

Well, now, what do we have here?  While the Boston City Council was busy passing a resolution to boycott Arizona for its raaaacist immigration law, Boston’s finest were working with ICE to rid the Commonwealth of illegals.

San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C. have fought to block this program. A Boston police spokesperson wouldn’t confirm whether the department is participating.

But according to federal documents and ICE, the Boston Police Department is participating. These officials say Boston is one of the cities where the program started.

“Boston was actually part of a pilot back in 2006 that first tested interoperability,” Martin says.

According to Martin, Boston shares the fingerprints of everyone it arrests with immigration officials. He says it’s all part of a plan to work more “efficiently.”

Here’s how it works:

When Boston police officers arrest someone, they enter their fingerprints into a database of FBI, Homeland Security and immigration information. If the person has had any interaction with immigration officials — if they overstayed a visa, if they applied for asylum, if they have a green card — it will ping officials. If ICE wants that person, they’ll call Boston police to put a hold on them.

ICE categorizes these immigrants — some of whom are here legally — by the severity of the charges against them. The program is supposed to target the worst offenders — “Level 1s” — people charged with murder, kidnapping, national security crimes. But Martin says ICE officials also deport people accused of lesser crimes that are picked up by Boston police officers.

“It’s based on what our resources allow,” he says. “Certainly somebody that is arrested for a Level 2 offense that also has those charges which make them removable, if we have the resources to devote to that, then we certainly will do that and enforce the immigration laws.”

Guess who was governor in 2006?  Not Deval.  Guess who was president?  Not Barry.

I wonder if some disgruntled illegal will storm the field at Fenway waving a Brazilian flag in response to this raaacist, xenophobic policy?

Rhode Island State Troopers Are Raaaacists!

Hold onto your knit hats, moonbats.  Rhode Island State Troopers are doing something that Barak’s mini-me put the kibosh on within seconds of being sworn in.  What are they doing you ask?  They are reporting illegal immigrants to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

SCITUATE, R.I. — Rhode Island State Trooper Nuno Vasconcelos was patrolling Interstate 95 a few months ago when he came upon a two-car accident in heavy traffic. The trooper pulled up, stepped out of his cruiser, and asked one of the drivers for his license.

The man said he did not have a license, and under questioning, confessed that he was here illegally from Guatemala.

If the accident had happened 15 miles north in Massachusetts, the man would probably have been arrested for driving without a license, which carries a fine of up to $1,000 and 10 days in jail, then released pending an appearance in district court.

But in Rhode Island, illegal immigrants face a far greater penalty: deportation.

From Woonsocket to Westerly, the troopers patrolling the nation’s smallest state are reporting all illegal immigrants they encounter, even on routine stops such as speeding, to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE.

Sounds an awful lot like the Arizona law that is making liberal and illegal heads explode to me.
