All should be cool with ar­rests

Agency do­ing its job clean­ing up, pro­tect­ing Amer­i­cans

Boston Herald - - NEWS - Howie CARR

Who rep­re­sents a greater threat to you and your fam­ily’s per­sonal safety — brazen il­le­gal im­mi­grant crim­i­nals who know they face no penal­ties for their law­less­ness, or the ICE agents who are try­ing to grab them at lo­cal court­houses be­fore they can kill, rape or rob any more Amer­i­cans?

The an­swer’s pretty ob­vi­ous, isn’t it?

Yet, in cer­tain cir­cles, it’s ICE — U.S. Im­mi­gra­tion and Cus­toms En­force­ment — that’s tak­ing the heat for ac­tu­ally hav­ing the temer­ity to … en­force the law.

Let me pose the ques­tion an­other way — sup­pose you have a Do­mini­can ca­reer crim­i­nal, with three aliases, de­ported twice al­ready, who gets picked up with co­caine in his pocket, and when the cops run his three aliases through the com­puter, they get back a fugi­tive war­rant from Penn­syl­va­nia on a drunken-driv­ing charge?

Is this the kind of “mi­grant” you want in your coun­try?

Would you want to thank an ICE agent who showed up at the court­house to make sure this arch fiend was sent back to one of the Third World hell­holes that spawned him and mil­lions more like him who are now de­stroy­ing this coun­try?

I’d go up and shake that ICE agent’s hand and per- son­ally con­grat­u­late him for rid­ding civ­i­liza­tion of such a thug. And so, I think, would you.

In case you missed it, there was an al­leged case in­volv­ing such a sus­pect ear­lier this year at the New­ton District Court. For the sec­ond time in less than a year, a dan­ger­ous il­le­gal im­mi­grant re­port­edly fled the court­house, jump­ing a fence as an ICE agent was stalled else­where in the build­ing.

A fed­eral grand jury is hear­ing tes­ti­mony. The out­rage is pal­pa­ble — against the feds for try­ing to take a for­eign mon­ster off the board be­fore he hurts any more tax­pay­ers.

Iron­i­cally, this lat­est cod­dling of a Do­mini­can il­le­gal im­mi­grant comes to light the same week that ICE rounds up 58 more of these crim­i­nals who des­per­ately want to get their cases trans­ferred to the New­ton District Court, the bet­ter to es­cape from.

Ac­cord­ing to ICE, “15 in­di­vid­u­als were pre­vi­ously re­leased from law en­force­ment cus­tody, cor­rec­tional fa­cil­i­ties, and/or court cus­tody with an ac­tive de­tainer.”

In other words, the New­ton District Court is not an aber­ra­tion. It’s the norm.

These il­le­gal im­mi­grants the judges are cut­ting loose are only charged with mi­nor crimes like mur­der, DWI, co­caine traf­fick­ing, as­sault, at­tempted as­sault, ag­gra­vated iden­tity theft etc., etc.

Let’s con­sider some of the bad hom­bres that ICE lugged in New Eng­land these past few days, over the stren­u­ous ob­jec­tions of the lo­cal Democrats:

In Methuen, they ar­rested a 23-year-old Do­mini­can claim­ing to be an Amer­i­can with con­vic­tions for drug traf­fick­ing, iden­tity theft and re­sist­ing ar­rest, with pend­ing charges for drug traf­fick­ing.

In Lan­caster, N.H., a Haitian was ar­rested in Coos County Su­pe­rior Court after an ap­pear­ance on a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence charge. He’s al­ready been con­victed of drunken driv­ing and drug traf­fick­ing.

In Lawrence, a Do­mini­can who had stolen an Amer­i­can’s iden­tity was ar­rested. He had prior con­vic­tions for posses­sion to dis­trib­ute co­caine and heroin.

In Brock­ton, it was a 41year-old Guade­loupe na­tive with con­vic­tions for DWI, co­caine posses­sion and as­sault and bat­tery. Ac­cord­ing to ICE, this un­doc­u­mented Demo­crat has more than 30 adult ar­raign­ments, in­clud­ing kid­nap­ping and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

In Hyan­nis, a Ja­maican, age 41, was ar­rested after con­vic­tion for posses­sion of 28-100 grams of co­caine.

In Dorch­ester, a 40-yearold Do­mini­can was lugged. He had pri­ors for traf­fick­ing co­caine and money laun­der­ing.

In Cranston, R.I., ICE ar­rested a 47-year-old Do­mini­can with pri­ors for co­caine posses­sion, DUI and do­mes­tic as­sault.

In Put­nam, Conn., ICE ar­rested a 59-year-old Brazil­ian who was wanted for mur­der in Brazil by al­legedly throw­ing a net over his vic­tim and stab­bing him 20 times.

I’m guess­ing that ev­ery sin­gle one of these for­eign felons has a pub­lic de­fender, be­cause of course they’re all “in­di­gent.”

I’m guess­ing, too, that ev­ery sin­gle one of these would-be Democrats will soon be re­quest­ing a change of venue — to New­ton District Court. Where in the halls of jus­tice, the only jus­tice is in the halls.
