For some reason – perhaps inadvertently – the Obama administration has admitted that an illegal immigrant and known gang member who was allowed to remain in the United States under President Obama’s executive amnesty was recently charged in the murders of four people.
Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez was allowed to remain in the U.S. under the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez. “Based on the standard procedures and protocols in place at the time, the DACA request and related employment authorization should not have been approved,” Rodriguez said in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
On Wednesday, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki declined to address the Rangel-Hernandez case specifically when queried by Fox News, nor would she discuss whether illegal immigrants who engage in criminal activity are being allowed to stay in the U.S. under DACA or similar executive actions.
Rangel-Hernandez, originally from Mexico, is now charged with first-degree murder in connection with the February killings of four people in North Carolina, including a former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant.
“This statement by USCIS confirms what we have feared,” Grassley said in a written statement, “that USCIS is not doing a thorough job reviewing the individuals who it allows to stay in this country under the president’s deferred action program.
“It’s no secret that USCIS staff is under intense pressure to approve every DACA application that comes across their desk. And based on this information, it’s clear that adequate protocols are not in place to protect public safety. The fact is that this tragedy could have been avoided if the agency had a zero-tolerance policy with regard to criminal aliens and gang members.”
At the time his request to remain in the U.S. was considered, Rangel-Hernandez was in deportation proceedings.
[Translated: The Obama administration desires increasing numbers of criminal garbage in the U.S. creating as much chaos as possible. It’s the same reason they are importing thousands of Muslims from war-torn nations that despise America, with no vetting whatsoever. It’s the same reason they are essentially ignoring jihadi training camps within our borders. When it reaches critical mass in terms of civil unrest, the government steps in militarily, and good-bye Republic. If Grassley knows that, he didn’t mention it… – Ed]
