Bad Immigration Policy Continues To Produce Violent Crime

posted on July 22, 2015

In case the Kathryn Steinle murder in San Francisco failed to exhaust your fury over absurd Obama administration immigration policies, here’s another: Dominican Republic citizens and murder suspects Wilton Lara-Calmona and Jose Lara-Mejia have been deported at least once each, and hence were both in this country illegally at the time of their latest crime.

The two are now being held while an investigation continues into the July 4 fatal shooting of Lawrence, Mass., nurse Mirta Rivera as she lay in bed in her apartment. So far, it looks as though the two fired a bullet from a bolt-action rifle through the floor of their apartment.

Lara-Calmona and Lara-Mejia also face drug charges for heroin and cocaine trafficking, and this begs a question beyond immigration and deportation enforcement: At what point will Americans start to insist that gun violence be publicly tied to its preponderant source of drug dealers and drug purchasers?
