The Dirty Face of Immigration

Police in Tacoma Washington and FBI agents found the body of a 12-year-old girl who was snatched from an alley behind her house during a July 4 fireworks celebration.

Information provided by a man in custody on an immigration complaint led police and FBI agents to an undisclosed location where they found Zina Linnik's body.

Police now have a suspect in the death, and while the man is innocent until proved guilty in a court of law, circumstances certainly point to his guilt, as a vehicle fitting the description of the suspect’s van was spotted in the area at the time the girl was abducted, and girl’s undergarments were found where he was living.

The suspect is Terapon Adhahn, 42, and guess what? He is a Thai immigrant who was convicted of incest in 1990. He also has been charged with failing to register as a sex offender. The incest conviction makes Adhahn eligible for deportation. If convicted, Adhahn should be executed.

Not too long ago an illegal Mexican alien killed two teenaged girls in Virginia Beach, Virginia, when in a drunken stupor his car crashed into theirs. This bozo had been arrested numerous times for being drunk and other infractions. If convicted, he, too, should be executed.

So, friends, all of this begs the question: What is wrong in the United States when people who are in this country illegally are arrested numerous times and are allowed to remain here, and when a legal immigrant is convicted of a crime that should have resulted in his deportation is allowed to remain here? Another question: How do the defenders of our asinine policies regarding aliens/immigrants who break our laws justify allowing these miscreants to remain here to prey on our citizens?

These soft-headed people don’t apparently care who we let in to our country, or what horrible things they do.

And perhaps more on point, why does the federal government continue to shirk its responsibilities on immigration, which is one of only a few legitimate functions of the federal government.

We simply have got to demand changes, and we have to do it NOW. The local, state and federal officials who fail to jail and/or deport criminal immigrants, legal or not, should be prosecuted and put in jail. Maybe that would get the point across.
