Every time I hear one of these sob stories, I think to myself, “One down, 30 million to go!”
Take John Cunningham, the Irish illegal immigrant who lived in Brighton and claimed to be an electrical contractor, even though he had no license. Like so many illegal immigrants, Cunningham had an arrest warrant out for him when he was pinched, after he had gone on Irish TV and bragged about living here.
Back in 2003, he got a 90-day visa and then just … forgot. You can sympathize, can’t you? I mean, if you get pulled over by a cop three days after your car registration expired, he’d accept that I-just-forgot excuse, right?
No, if you were lucky, you’d get a citation. If you weren’t, your car might be towed and you might be taken away in handcuffs.
On this one, the headline from The Washington Post tells it all: “ICE nabs teenager hours before his senior prom.”
Oh well, I’m sure they have proms in Ecuador, and if not, well, it’ll always be one of the kid’s fondest memories of America, along with indoor plumbing and EBT cards.

The Corner at National Review Online, July 1, 2017http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/449169/kate-steinle-no-sanctuary-criminals
Today is Kate Steinle Day, the second anniversary of a woman’s murder by a repeatedly deported illegal-alien felon nestled in the warm embrace of San Francisco’s sanctuary policies. But she wasn’t the first American to be killed by sanctuary-city ordinances, not even in San Francisco. In 2008 a Dreamer convicted-felon gang member protected – twice – from deportation by the city’s policies murdered Anthony Bologna and his sons, Michael and Matthew. And in 2010, Drew Rosenberg was run over three times by an illegal alien with Temporary Protected Status who shortly before had been arrested – and then let go by San Francisco police – for driving without a license or insurance the wrong way down a one-way street.
And elsewhere victims have included Jamiel Shaw, Joshua Wilkerson, Dominic Durden, Brandon Mendoza, Michael Davis and Danny Oliver, and many more.
The House of Representatives finally stepped up this week by passing two bills designed to curb the special protections enjoyed by criminal aliens. The first is Kate’s Law, named for s. Steinle, that lengthens the sentence for re-entry after deportation, which is already a felony. The bill, aggressively promoted by Bill O’Reilly, is mainly symbolic – the problem with illegal aliens re-entering after a formal deportation is not that the sentences were too short but that U.S. Attorneys often didn’t prosecute at all. There’s nothing wrong with Kate’s Law, but the energy devoted to it over the past two years would have been better spent promoting broader legislation.
Legislation like the other bill passed by the House this week, the No Sanctuaries for Criminals Act. The bill is needed because the Justice and Homeland Security departments have limited ability to fight state and local nullification of federal immigration law, but Congress has more. The potential efficacy of this bill is suggested by the fact that only three House Democrats voted for it, as opposed to the 24 Democrats who voted for Kate’s Law in order to pretend that they care about immigration enforcement. (Only one Republican – Justin Amash – voted against both bills.)
Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte shepherded these two bills, and has several other important pieces of legislation queued up, including the Davis-Oliver Act, which would tighten immigration more broadly, rather than specifically regarding sanctuary cities. But since these bills would need support from eight Senate Democrats to pass (unless the filibuster is returned to its traditional talking format rather than requiring a supermajority for almost all legislation), I don’t see how they become law. When the overwhelming majority of a party’s lawmakers can vote against a symbolic measure like Kate’s Law because they object to the symbolism – opposition to illegal immigration – groups like the newly formed Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) still have a lot of work ahead of them.
Illegal Alien Accused of Stabbing Her Four Children, Husband to Death
An illegal alien has been arrested after being accused of killing four of her five children and her husband in a brutal stabbing.Isabel Martinez, an illegal alien with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer, is accused of stabbing to death four of her children, including 2-year-old Axel, 4-year-old Dillan, 7-year-old Dacota and 10-year-old Isabela Martinez, and her husband, 33-year-old Martin Romero, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
Martinez also allegedly stabbed her fifth child, 9-year-old Diana Romero, but after being airlifted to the hospital following the stabbing incident, she is expected to survive, according to authorities.
According to police, Martinez went on the stabbing spree against her own family in the middle of the night, around 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.
“What prompts a person to take the life of such innocent children and her spouse is something we may never understand,” Gwinnett County police said in a statement. “This is a horrendous crime not only for the victims but for the extended family, neighborhood and community. We are hoping and praying that the remaining victim survives his/her injuries and makes a full recovery.”
In a write-up for the New York Times on the brutal crime incident, mainstream media reporters called the accused killer a “Georgia woman,” glossing over the fact that she had been placed on an immigration hold.
In accordance with ICE policy, only illegal aliens can be hit with a detainer. But, the Times tried to bury the hold, slipping it into one statement reading “She was also being held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, officials said.”
Martinez is being charged with five counts of malice murder, five counts of murder, and six counts of aggravated assault. Martinez remains in local custody, but should she ever be let out, she will be turned over to ICE officials for prosecution and deportation.

Finally, Common Sense on Immigration:
Kate's Law Passed by House of Representatives
By Jon Harris
Washington Examiner, June 30, 2017
The House also passed a bill to pull federal funding for certain programs away from "Sanctuary Cities." Named as the "No Sanctuary for Criminals Act," the bill would cut federal grants to states and "Sanctuary Cities" that refuse to cooperate with law enforcement carrying out immigration enforcement activities.
This win is only half the battle. Both bills will face substantial opposition in the Senate from the Democratic side of the aisle who successfully blocked Kate's Law last year. The Senate Republicans will need all their members and at least eight Democrats to vote with them to assure Kate's Law as well as the No Sanctuary Law will pass. It will be a steep hill to climb.
