The Obama administration has so screwed up our immigration system that they are releasing criminal illegals back into the population for them to turn around and commit murder before they can be deported:
YAHOO NEWS – Federal authorities say an immigrant was out on bond and awaiting deportation hearings when he killed a Phoenix-area convenience store clerk over a pack of cigarettes.
Apolinar Altamirano, 29, pleaded guilty in 2012 to a burglary charge but did not serve time in prison. U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement took Altamirano into custody on Jan. 3, 2013, after learning of his conviction in Maricopa County in Arizona. But after reviewing his case, ICE found he was eligible for bond, a spokeswoman said in a statement issued Monday.
Altamirano was free on bond when two injunctions against harassment were issued against him in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa. An injunction against harassment is similar to a protection order.
Altamirano is now facing a first-degree murder charge, among others, after the shooting death of 21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck last week.
Critics say the shooting is an example of the lax immigration policies put into place by the Obama administration. Directives issued by former ICE director John Morton in 2011 provided new guidelines for deportations that focused on dangerous criminals with gang ties or who had been convicted of “serious felonies.”
“This administration has taken the position that you have to use violence against an American and be convicted of it before they will take notice if you are an illegal alien,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for more immigration restrictions.
