Law-enforcement official: Less accountability for illegal aliens than for citizens
A local law-enforcement official at the forefront of enforcing our criminal and immigration laws says non-U.S. citizens who don’t comply are held to a different and lower standard compared to lawful residents.
In a Senate hearing focused on the impact of crimes by illegal immigrants on Americans as far north as Wisconsin and Washington, Grant County, Wash., Chief Deputy Ryan Rectenwald described a gruesome murder in 2016 of Jill Marie Sundberg by a previously deported illegal immigrant who skipped out on an $8,000 bond.
“He never returned for his hearing. No failure to appear warrants were ever issued,” said in prepared testimony before the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, chaired by Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson. The hearing begins at 10 a.m.
“That’s not how legal residents are treated when they miss court dates; you and I would have had warrants issued for our arrest,” he added in the advance testimony provided to Secrets.
It’s crucial, as President Donald Trump said in his joint address to Congress Tuesday, that those who enter our nation love Americans and respect our laws and values. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our leaders to enforce our immigration laws and keep our citizens safe.
