On May 25, in the shadow of COVID-19 lockdowns and lost jobs, Minneapolis police officer David Chauvin was recorded kneeling on George Floyd’s neck which contributed to his death. Not only did the video go viral, it was the catalyst that ignited protests and riots around the country. Within the unrest, protestors rolled in the killing of Armaud Arbury. On February 23, Gregory and Travis McMichael confronted Arbery in a Brunswick County, GA subdivision. The father-son duo fought with Arbury who was shot and died because of the melee. After the story was broadcast on CNN, there were calls for the father-son duo to be prosecuted along with the man that recorded the interaction between the three men. Breonna Taylor was killed March 13 when Louisville, Kentucky Metro Police attempted to execute a “no-knock” search warrant. Metro police officers stormed into Ms. Taylor’s home. She was killed after being shot eight times. Protestors marched in protest of the killings of these three Black Americans.
There was outrage for the loss of these lives, but what about the lives of a judge, two children, and a senior citizen?
On February 25, Jose Armenta-Vasquez, an illegal alien, was released from jail instead of into ICE custody. Denver, Colorado officials will not allow ICE to assume custody of illegal aliens in the Denver jails. This was at least the third time ICE officials attempted to assume custody of Vasquez. During the most recent release, Vasquez stabbed an Adams County Magistrate judge.
Jose Bulmaro Cruz-Guillen, an illegal alien from Mexico residing in Augusta, was wanted by authorities for punching his 4-year old stepson in the face and body in 2014. Guillen was also indicted in 2019 for sexually abusing his 7-year old stepdaughter over a prolonged period of time. He was finally apprehended on February 17th.
On March 7, Ramiro Federico Mendoza-Sales, an illegal alien, crashed his car severely injuring one passenger and killing 60-year old Evelyn Falcon who was ejected from the car. Sales was eluding Chambersburg, Pennsylvania police because he was driving without a license and under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. In his court appearance, Sales was denied bail and court records showed he was in the U.S. unlawfully. In 2019, he was arrested twice for driving without a license and was never deported. Chambersburg is located in Franklin County which is a sanctuary jurisdiction.
The crime of illegal immigration takes lives, futures, jobs, and income.
ACORN, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the remaining entitlement-mentality, alphabet organizations remain silent when it comes to these victims. A cursory review of the websites of these groups shows
- ACORN: “…demands that lawmakers pass comprehensive immigration reform measures that include … path to citizenship
- Black Lives Matter: “We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of … immigration status …”
- Occupy Wall Street: “… demand immigrant justice … and stopping detentions and deportations of our beloved community members.”
Just as cases of police misconduct leaves destruction in its wake, so, too, does illegal immigration. Where were the marches from these organizations for the two children, the senior citizen, the judge and the millions of lives affected by illegal immigration?
