Preventable crimes and a porous border

Maracio Cedra (illegal alien rapist)Recent, graphic crimes in California and Nevada are more stark reminders of what an unprotected border allows, says the spokesman for an immigration watchdog.

An illegal alien in California, Macario Cerda (pictured at left), was sentenced to more than 400 years in prison last week after being convicted of kidnapping, three counts of rape, criminal threats, and seven counts of lewd acts upon a child under 14 --- all against the same family.

In neighboring Nevada, an illegal alien from El Salvador has been charged with murder in the deaths of four people earlier this month. '

Both cases predictably drew national attention since immigration and border security are national headlines right now, and the stories gained even more attention after President Donald Trump suggested the murders showed the need for his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says there is no debate that American citizens have been victimized by illegal aliens who should not be here.

"Who in many cases have been deported and have been able to get back in," he says, "in spite of the fact that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer tell us the border is already secured."

"All God's Children" immigration bannerOpen-borders leftists, in fact, openly suggest that a national border is a racist idea, or similarly suggest that "no human being is illegal," and Pelosi has mirrored those far-left views by suggesting a border wall is "immoral" in her ongoing feud with President Trump.

Meanwhile, illegal aliens seem to have little trouble sneaking back in after they are deported, says Mehlman, and once in the country they are protected from deportation by "sanctuary laws" that shield them from federal authorities.

Mehlman tells OneNewsNow that every crime committed by an illegal alien was a preventable crime, and fellow Americans should consider anyone who blocks immigration laws as partly responsible for the tragedies that occur.

"You have all these factors that contribute to a crisis," he complains, "where people are losing their lives at the hands of people who should not be in the first place."
