Long after they were ordered out of the country, thousands of criminal aliens from places like China, Cuba, Vietnam and Pakistan remain free in the United States to commit new crimes because their home countries refuse to take them back.
For years, this unique problem percolated under the political radar. But recent crimes by immigrant felons have lawmakers scrambling to punish nations that refuse to repatriate their own citizens. The Obama administration and many Democrats in Congress, however, are blocking punitive legislation, preferring to let the State Department handle the issue diplomatically.
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, is leading the charge in Congress to change the law, pushing to withhold visas to nations that refuse to take back their own.
“I don’t know why the State Department seems to take the side of foreign countries over our own American interest in the United States,” Poe said, urging the U.S. to tell those countries: “Look, you take these people back or the consequence is going to be no visas for your nation.”
~ The first illegal, Shafiqul Islam who crashed Decker’s 2006 Hyundai Accent on Route 23 in Claverack around 6:42 p.m. on Sunday (NOV. 20122). After crashing Decker’s car, Islam then fled the scene. HILLSDALE, N.Y. – The Columbia County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that the victim of the Sunday night Hillsdale murder died of manual strangulation. 73-year-old Lois Decker was found murdered in her home at 18 Cold Water Street in the Village of Hillsdale after officers went to her home to talk with her during the investigation of a one car rollover accident. Islam is a Level 2 Sex Offender and is currently on parole for a 2008 conviction and three year prison sentence from a felony offense of Promoting a Sexual Performance by a Child Less than 17.
Mrs. Decker was very patriotic and always supported veterans organizations. This punk, with the OK of the State Dept., Bis Sis, Hillary, Eric and Obama robbed Lois’ four children, three grandchildren, four step-grandchildren, a brother, and four sisters of her devotion. Amongst so many other family, friends, she was a Sunday school teacher, a volunteer at the nursery school, as well as at the Stay in Play after school program. She Loved Elvis and bowling.
“Lois had so much more living to do. She’ll never see her grandchildren marry. Or see them have children. She loved her family, her friends and her church,” lamented Decker’s sister Sue Call at Islam’s sentencing hearing.

* In Boston, a Cambodian gang member stabbed and beat 16-year-old Ashton Cline-McMurray to death with a golf club. The boy, disabled with cerebral palsy, was attacked while walking home from a football game. Loeun Heng, an illegal immigrant who pleaded guilty to manslaughter, received a 10 to 12 year sentence.Ashton was killed by four teenagers in Revere 11 years ago.
“They said he would never set foot basically on American soil again,” said the boy’s mother Sandra Hutchinson. “It’s crazy. They’re just letting him back out there to do it to somebody else.” Eventually, Cambodia relented and took him back.
But these cases caught Poe’s attention. His first bill introduced last year refused any visas — student, business or tourist — to any country that refused to repatriate their criminals. That bill went nowhere, opposed by the travel industry, the administration and Democrats in Congress
Back again in the House Immigration Subcommittee, Poe is trying again. This year, his bill only applies to visas for diplomatic staff from countries that refuse deported nationals. But many Democrats believe even that is too aggressive.
The issue recently came to Poe’s attention after three especially heinous crimes were committed by men ordered deported years ago.
Those nations with the highest numbers, in order, are: Cuba, China, India, Pakistan and Vietnam.
~ And this administration is concerned more for these nefarious, sick nations then Our citizens?!
Fox News contacted Democratic members of the immigration subcommittee, but they declined interviews on the topic.
