Border Security: Illegal Deported 44 Times in 15 Years Tops Feds Most Wanted List –
by Carmine Sabia
Talk about not getting the message.
A Mexican man tops Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s list of most deported illegal aliens with a whopping 44 deportations to his name, according to data provided by the agency to The Washington Times.
More astounding is that the man managed those 44 deportations in a mere 15 years. Which also means he snuck back in that many times.
And the stunning part is that he is not alone.
The list includes another person who was deported 40 times between the years of 2001 – 2015. And the other three members of the top five were deported 35, 34 and 31 times, respectively.
All of the top five were Mexicans and, combined, had accrued 14 criminal convictions for illegal entry, seven for illegal re-entry, three for vehicle theft and one for “cruelty toward wife.”
ICE gave the information to the Times on the condition that it not name the illegal aliens in the report. But The Washington Times does not need to name anyone specifically for you to know there is a major issue of illegal aliens re-entering The United States after they are deported.
On Sunday, when football fans were celebrating the Super Bowl, the family of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson were planning a funeral after a drunk driving, two times deported illegal alien from Guatemala, Manuel Orrego-Savala, smashed his pickup truck into the Uber that Jackson was in. The accident also killed the man driving the Uber, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, Fox News reported.
Orrego-Savala, 37, was arrested following the crash early Sunday along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. Investigators said Jackson, 26, and his Uber driver, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, were standing outside Monroe’s car when they were struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by Orrego-Savala.
Orrego-Savala was deported in 2007 and 2009, and was again living illegally in the U.S. at the time of the crash, according to investigators…
Orrego-Savala’s blood alcohol level was 0.239 at the time of the crash — three times the legal limit — The Indianapolis Star reported, citing a probable cause affidavit. Drivers in Indiana are presumed intoxicated with a 0.08 percent blood alcohol level.
Orrego-Savala previously had a 2005 conviction for driving under the influence in Redwood City, California. He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and Indiana, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.
In the 2005 case, he pleaded no contest to two separate drunken-driving offenses and was given a brief jail sentence, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Tuesday.
An angry President Donald Trump lashed out at the killing, and the lack of sufficient border security that allows illegals to keep coming back.
“So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson,” he tweeted. “This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!”
“We need a 21st century MERIT-BASED immigration system. Chain migration and the visa lottery are outdated programs that hurt our economic and national security,” he said.
Texas Sen. John Cornyn said the crash should be a wake up call to those fighting tougher border security.
“People are dying as a result of criminals taking advantage of the porous nature of the border, and we need to stop it,” he said. “A lot of that has to do with improving our border security. And it’s not just about barriers. It’s about technology. It’s about personnel and creating the systems that are necessary to stop more of that.”
The most famous case of an illegal alien being deported several times only to come back and cause catastrophe was the 2015 killing of Kate Steinle by Jose Ines Garcia-Zarate who was deported five times before he fired a gun on a San Francisco pier that killed Steinle.
The killing was the catalyst for Kate’s Law which would jail illegal immigrants who come back after being deported.
Illegal aliens who came back after their first deportation could get two years in prison, and by the third attempt would face 10 years. Those with major criminal convictions could get 25 years.
That is what is called a deterrent.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is calling for Kate’s Law to be part of the immigration debate involving illegal immigrant Dreamers and border security.
“While no legislation can prevent every tragic situation, Congress has a duty to take every action possible to mitigate this harm and danger,” Mr. Goodlatte said in a statement to The Times.
His plan also includes the Davis-Oliver Act, which would require localities to cooperate with deportation efforts, pushing back against the growing number of sanctuaries that protect illegal immigrants.
Andrew R. Arthur, resident fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies and a former immigration judge, said prison time is critical.
“The prospect of five years of slammer time for illegal re-entry is a strong disincentive,” he said. “The vast majority of individuals who enter the U.S. illegally who aren’t smugglers are coming to the United States to work. If they are in jail, they’re not able to work to provide for either themselves or their family.”
