Big Sis: Keeping her eye on Tea Party ‘extremists’, veterans, and gun owners.
Criminal aliens? Not so much.
One of the Chechen terrorists who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings should have been deported years ago after a criminal conviction, as called for by U.S. immigration law.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old killed in a wild shootout with police, was a legal U.S. resident who nevertheless should have been removed from the country after a 2009 domestic violence conviction, according to a Judicial Watch source.
That means the Obama administration’s DHS division missed an opportunity to deport Tsarnaev, but did not abide by Federal immigration law and let him stay. It is an especially remarkable oversight, as his crime was committed in his first several years in the country – a more egregious violation by an immigrant. Tsarnaev came to the U.S. on a tourist visa in 2006. U.S. immigration law is clear on this subject:
Conviction of a crime involving “moral turpitude” during the first five (5) years after being admitted to the U.S. carries a penalty of deportation. “Moral turpitude” crimes include theft crimes such as burglary and possession of stolen property, or violent crimes such as assault and battery. Even if a legal resident was not sentenced to jail time, they are deportable if the crime committed could have resulted in a sentence of one year or more in jail.
In 2004 Chechen Islamic militants attacked a school in Beslan, North Ossetia, Russia and they murdered 380 children, parents, teachers and visitors after holding more than 1,000 captive for three days.
In 2004, U.S. security officials released a report that a group of 25 Chechen terrorists illegally entered the United States from Mexico. There’s no telling how many of these Chechen terrorists have infiltrated the United States or how many opportunities the government has missed to protect the country by deporting them.
