GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has made immigration the centerpiece of his maverick presidential bid — hammering Barack Obama for his “weakness” in enforcing the law, and promising a crackdown on illegals should he be elected.
And one of the things Trump has skewered Obama for is ordering his Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division to weaken their “priorities” by which they hold criminal illegals in detention.
Obama himself has said immigration enforcement is “not smart” and that most illegals are “not making trouble.”
Well one illegal Obama’s ICE released in Maryland just proved Donald Trump right — and it only took him 10 minutes to do it.
As the Daily Caller reported:
Just minutes after being set free from jail, an illegal immigrant who had already been deported once stole a woman’s car and threatened to kill her.
Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez, 24, had been held in ICE’s Montgomery County Detention Center since June before being released Monday afternoon, FOX5 reports.
Upon his release, Cabrera-Hernandez approached a woman in a nearby parking lot and demanded she get out of her car.
Cabrera-Hernandez, armed with a knife in one hand and a brick in the other, put the knife to the woman’s throat and forced her out of her car, NBC Washington reports.
Once she was out of the car, Cabrera-Hernandez threw the brick at the woman before speeding away in her car.
Police went to the nearby detention center and were informed that Cabrera-Hernandez was released just 30 minutes before the initial distress call about the carjacking was placed.
He got away. But his criminal nature just couldn’t resist …and he did it again just two days later:
Cabrera-Hernandez held on to the stolen car for two days before he found another victim and attempted to steal a different car. He approached a 68-year-old woman at the parking lot of the Sibley Hospital Medical Office Building and demanded she hand over her keys.
The two struggled for a bit before Cabrera-Hernandez threw a bottle at the woman’s head, which missed, and she was able to escape from the car. Cabrera-Hernandez then sped away in the newly stolen car, breaking through a security gate with police in pursuit.
This time he didn’t get away.
Cabrera-Hernandez crashed the car into some trees after leading police on a brief chase. He then took off through the woods, but was found by police shortly after walking down a road in Northwest D.C.
Here is where Obama’s weakened immigration policies come into play.
Cabrera-Hernandez was first arrested in 2007 for being in the United States illegally. He was arrested again in 2011 for illegally entering the country and deported later that year.
A spokeswoman for ICE told FOX5 that the crime Cabrera-Hernandez was arrested for didn’t meet ICE’s “civil immigration enforcement priorities.”
What was that crime? Armed carjacking!
Following his arrest, D.C. police learned that Cabrera-Hernandez was wanted in Maryland for an outstanding armed carjacking warrant. He is currently in jail pending a hearing later this week.
So Obama’s ICE didn’t think it was a “priority” to maintain detention — and eventually deport or imprison — an illegal alien who had previously carjacked someone with a weapon?
THIS is why Trump’s promise to “crackdown” on criminal illegals “on day one” is so resonating with millions of Americans.
Share this on Facebook if you agree with Trump that illegal aliens must be deported, and a wall built to make sure they never come in again…
