Once again, a liberal court comes to the defense of an illegal alien and blocks federal immigration laws. A Mexican citizen has been living illegally in the United States for the past 25-years, taking advantage of Americans and our benefits. He was detained in February when he dropped his daughter off for school.
ICE Agents picked him up and he was eventually issued orders for deportation. Those deportation orders were challenged, sending them to an immigration appeals court. Although this court dismissed the deportation order, the illegal is still not a free man.
His case was returned to the same lower court that first issued the deportation order. However, with the huge backlog of immigration cases facing the courts, it could take several years before this case comes back before the court.
An immigration appeals court this week threw out the final deportation order for Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez, who was detained in late February minutes after he dropped his daughter off at school in Lincoln Heights.
His lawyer said the case will be kicked back to the local immigration court that initially ordered that he be deported. That means Avelica-Gonzalez, 49, is still in deportation proceedings, but it could take years for a judge to enter a new decision.
An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the agency can no longer comment on Avelica-Gonzalez’s case because of his pending U visa application.
Avelica-Gonzalez, a Mexican citizen, has lived in the United States for 25 years. ICE agents arrested him Feb. 28, minutes after he dropped off his daughter Yuleni, 12, at school. Another daughter, Fatima, now 14, sobbed as she recorded cellphone video of the encounter, which went viral…
I don’t understand the system. If someone is here illegally and it can be proven, then they should be deported. If not deported, then they should serve time in prison for every year they lived in the US illegally. Once harsher treatment of illegals is seen, fewer illegals will enter the nation and some may even choose to leave before they are arrested and lost everything by being deported or sent to prison.
