Open borders organizations are now taking their pro-illegal immigration efforts a step further by demanding that violent convicts not be deported.
During an interview with the LA Times, activists with various open borders and immigration advocacy groups said criminal illegal immigrants should not be deported, mainly because it hurts their native countries.
For instance, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network Pablo Alvarado claims that countries like Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico should not have to be burdened with criminals.
“I’ve been in El Salvador and in Honduras when the planes land with deportees,” Alvarado told the LA Times. “It’s becoming the penal colony of the United States where criminal dumping is acceptable.”
Another open borders leader, Executive Director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles Angelica Salas said the U.S. should not deport criminal illegal immigrants because they are generally poor.
“We’re deporting people without a single penny to their name into abject poverty or homelessness, many of them back to places they haven’t known,” Salas told the LA Times. “These people are products of our society.”
The open borders lobby is no stranger to far-left sentiments like opposing the deportation of convicted violent criminals.
Most recently, Chris Newman with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network denounced the Department of Homeland Security’s Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) unit, which helps the victims and families of illegal immigrant criminals.
“Victims are not more harmed or need greater healing when the perpetrator of those crimes are not citizens,” Newman said, as Breitbart Texas reported. “This is clearly not an earnest effort. So you do have to ask what’s going on here. I think it seems pretty clear that this office is designed to gin up fear as part of President Trump’s overall war on non-white immigrants in the United States. I think it’s about, unfortunately, the racist exploitation of grief and tragedy. I think that the office is despicable.”
None of the open borders leaders mentioned, though, the recent Department of Justice (DOJ) report which revealed that nearly 46,000 foreign-born criminals are sitting in U.S. federal prisons. More than 41,500 of those foreign-born criminals are illegal immigrants.
