The fight over illegal immigration continues to rage. Our government was temporarily shut down over it.
And, despite what Liberals claim, most Americans are against illegal immigration.
We understand that illegal immigrants cost Americans jobs. They jeopardize our national security. And they allow for criminals and drug cartels to operate in the United States.
Yet there are those who fight for illegals’ “rights” in this country. Democrats make the top of the list in advocacy, and of course, most other advocates are illegals themselves.
However, President Trump believes that the rule of law supersedes the “rights” of these illegal aliens. And because of that, it looks like two prominent illegals are facing the music.
The men apprehended are Jean Montrevil and Ravidath Ragbir, who had been previously deported for wire fraud. Both of these men violated our laws, and they openly advocated for illegal aliens like themselves.
From Daily Caller:
Immigration authorities have detained in recent weeks two prominent activists who are themselves illegal immigrants, demonstrating the Trump administration’s commitment to expand the pool of deportable aliens.
The arrested men have openly lived in the U.S. for years and have until recently enjoyed a de facto immunity from deportation, thanks to their status as high-profile immigrants’ rights activists…
Both men are leaders of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City, a network of religious and social organizations that works to prevent the detention and deportation of illegal immigrants…
CE officers first detained Jean Montrevil, a Haitian national who had lived in the U.S. since 1986 despite having served a prison term for drug possession that resulted in a deportation order…[Ravidath] Ragbir came to the U.S. in 1991 as a legal permanent resident, but he was ordered deported in 2006 following a wire fraud conviction for which he served a two-and-a-half year prison sentence.
Just imagine the audacity of these men. They are flaunting their illegal status in our faces. Not only do they refuse to follow our laws, they fight to ensure other criminal aliens can stay.
Considering they were well-connected and influential, they could have gotten legal status. One way or another, they might have become legal residents or even citizens. But they continued to break the law, because it was easier.
That’s what it all comes down to. Illegals refuse to follow the law because it’s hard. They don’t want to take the necessary steps to live here legally. They just hope the U.S. government will look the other way.
Those days are over. Obama’s not in the White House. Our government is once again enforcing our laws. Illegal immigration is nearing its final days. Thank God for President Trump.
