Do you remember last year, when Kate Steinle was gunned down in broad daylight by an illegal alien who had been deported FIVE times?
There was national outrage. Her killing got wall-to-wall media coverage, leading many Americans to ask what the heck was going on in Liberal cities for them to provide sanctuary for these killers…
Well, believe it or not, this horrible tragedy has actually been topped.
Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez has been arrested and charged with murdering three people, and shooting a fourth, on an Oregon blueberry farm.
Oh, and one more thing: Gonzalez had previously been deported SIX times.
Think about that… Six times, this man has been kicked out of the country and six times, he just waltzed right back in.
Now, three people are dead.
The media won’t cover it, just like the media refused to cover the fact that a concealed carry permit holder stopped a mass shooting at a nightclub this week…
They can’t risk disproving their narrative!
Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez was first deported in 2003. His most recent deportation, prior to the murder, was in 2013.
This isn’t a partisan issue. Both political parties are to blame for this. The Democrats want open borders to grow their voter rolls and the Republicans want open borders to facilitate more cheap labor for corporate interests.
In the wake of the Kate Steinle killing last year, a bill called “Kate’s Law” was introduced in Congress. This bill is only 269-words long but it would amend the current penal code to implement strict, mandatory minimums for illegal alien criminals who are deported and then re-enter the United States. Not only that, but each subsequent illegal re-entry would increase the minimum sentence.
If an illegal alien commits a crime and is deported, they would face a minimum of 5-years in prison if they were ever caught in the United States again.
If they’re deported after this prison sentence and they’re caught in the United States again, the minimum sentence would jump to 10-years. If it happens again, a mandatory minimum of 20-years would be applied.
Right now, if someone is convicted of a violent crime, deported, and then caught re-entering the country, the judge would have the option to just levy a fine.
Kate’s Law would completely end that practice.
Here is the good news: After languishing for a whole year, the Senate will be voting on Kate’s Law as a standalone bill this week! The Senate will also hold a second vote to defund Sanctuary Cities that defy Federal immigration law in protecting illegal aliens from prosecution.
This is the first vote on a bill against illegal immigration that has been scheduled in years. Up until now, Mitch McConnell has been too fearful to schedule this for a vote.
This is all thanks to your activism. If you hadn’t been holding Congress’ feet to the fire, demanding a vote, this day likely wouldn’t have come.
But now is not a time to rest on our laurels. Now is not the time to pat ourselves on the back for coming this far.
