Real Face Of Illegal Immigration

In his seventh year of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” as Barack Obama promised five days before he was elected president, we are learning new details about thousands of immigrants who were released from custody after being convicted of serious, violent felonies and horrific sex crimes. Cuba refused to take back Luis-Leyva Vargas after he served time in a Florida prison for unlawful sex with a teenage girl. After he was released by ICE, he kidnapped an 18-year-old girl in Virginia at knifepoint and raped her. He is now serving a 55-year prison sentence, which U.S. taxpayers are paying for. Felix Rodriguez, a 57-year old sex offender, was convicted of raping children as young as 4 years old, but was freed to continue his crimes because Cuba refused to take him back. He then fatally shot his girlfriend in Kansas City, pled guilty, and is now serving a sentence in a Missouri prison.

Obama used his executive action to give valuable benefits to the Communist rulers of Cuba without any quid pro quo whatsoever that might benefit the United States. Cuba refuses to take back its citizens who have been convicted of crimes against Americans. Cuba refused to take back 878 criminals last year and has already rejected nearly 400 criminals this year. Cuba is the biggest offender among the countries that refuse to take back their own citizens who committed crimes in our country, but there are at least a dozen other countries doing the same thing. It is bad enough that those criminals committed vicious crimes against our girls, but it adds insult to injury when we have to spend U.S. taxpayers’ money to support foreign criminals for years in our prisons.

For starters, Congress should cut off all foreign aid and all other favors to countries that refuse to take back their own criminals.
