Elder Patriot – A group of progressive House Democrats led by Reps. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Adriano Espaillat of New York, introduced a bill this past Thursday that would abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency within one year.
If you’re like me you have to be scratching your head over the growing insanity coming from the left side of the aisle. As if the the Democrats’ open borders policy isn’t costly enough to our nation’s economy, ICE is the critical cog is limiting the cost of human carnage that results from unvetted immigrants..
Just 13 days into this month alone ICE officers are responsible for these major busts:
Enrique Rodriguez, 37, of El Paso, Texas, was convicted on one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, one count of possession with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin, and one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.
Gang members allegedly committed 5 murders, conspired to murder 8 persons, engaged in kidnappings, extortion, and drug trafficking.
HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS
Jucontee Thomas Woewiyu, 72, lied on his application for U.S. citizenship by denying that he advocated the overthrow of any government by force or violence and by denying that he ever persecuted any person because of membership in a social group or their political opinion.
John C. Goelz, 29, of Carmel, Indiana, and a swim coach with Carmel High School, faces charges of sexually exploiting a minor who was one of his athletes, and possessing child pornography.
SAN JUAN, PR
A Humacao-area man was sentenced Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico to more than 17 years in prison for production of child pornography. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) conducted the investigation that led to the arrest.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
HSI eventually seized 795 boxes containing 181,615 pieces of trademark-infringed merchandise, which included many counterfeited brands, such as the following names: Adidas, Apple, Calvin Klein, Casio, Chanel, Coach, Diesel, Fendi, Gucci, Hugo Boss, LG, Luis Vuitton, Mark Kors, Nike, Rolex, Samsung, Sony, Under Armor, Yves St. Laurent; and DC and Marvel Comics.
KANSAS CITY, MO
A former professional basketball player was sentenced to six years in federal prison Monday on charges related to an extensive charity fraud scheme.
ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL
Dorviro Rocha-Ribeiro, 47, a citizen and national of Brazil who was the subject of an Interpol Red Notice for murder, was removed from the United States by officers with ICE’s ERO to Brazil via Boston Logan International Airport and Miami International Airport on July 10.
A federal grand jury this week indicted eight MS-13 gang members on the following criminal charges: racketeering conspiracy; attempted murder in aid of racketeering; assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering; conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering; and using, carrying and possessing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
EL PASO, TX
Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and agents with U.S. Border Patrol arrested 18 alien smugglers and seized cash, vehicles and more than 1,000 lbs. of marijuana last month in a joint effort.
With a track record like this what could these Democrats be thinking? They must be afraid that if the people ever learn about the important work ICE does they will no longer be able to deny their intent to undermine the security of the United States.
