When apologists for illegal immigration (who have taken a vow of stupidity) say those they euphemistically call “undocumented workers” are doing the jobs Americans don’t want, does that include kidnapping and rape?
Evandro Doirado, a 28-year-old Brazilian, is in custody in Massachusetts, awaiting trial for aggravated rape, kidnapping a child, kidnapping and sexual assault while armed, assault with intent to kill and carjacking.Mr. Doirado’s latest crime spree began a few days before Christmas. As the result of a drug deal gone bad, the Brazilian stabbed an acquaintance.
Believing he’d killed victim #1, and so could be facing a life sentence, Doirado decided it was time for a little R&R.
He proceeded to kidnap a woman and her 2-year-old son at knifepoint from a Wal-Mart parking lot (ironically, as the retail giant has a reputation for employing illegals), drove them to a motel and repeatedly raped the woman over the course of two days – frequently in front of her child. He threatened to kill the toddler if the mother tried to escape.
Finally, she managed to alert the clerk at a liquor store, who contacted police. The woman and child were freed, and Doirado was arrested. Did I mention that this exemplary newcomer to our country is probably HIV-positive? All in all, it was a nice early Christmas present for mother and child.
But Doirado did not act alone. His accomplices include amnesty-pushing politicians, municipalities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, so-called immigrant-advocacy groups that lobby for porous borders and callers to talk-shows who insist that illegals are a boon to the economy and grateful we should be for their presence here.
You see, besides being a cocaine addict (which he admitted to in custody), a kidnapper, a rapist and an assailant – Mr. Doirado is also in this country illegally.
One of the many swell things about illegal immigration is that there’s no way to do a criminal background check on the estimated half-million “undocumented workers” who come here each year.
Back in Brazil, Doirado could have a rap sheet as long as the Great Wall of China. But no one here knew it.
Obviously, with illegal immigration, there’s no way to weed out the addicts, sex offenders, murderers or gang members – or those with more prosaic problems, like communicable diseases. (According to the author of a report for the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, diseases such as tuberculosis and polio are re-appearing in this country -- and others like dengue fever have been detected for the first time -- thanks to illegal immigration.)
Illegal immigration and crime go together like Hollywood and treason. Consider:
· Between 1980 and 1999, the numbers of immigrants (most illegal) in federal and state prisons jumped from 9,000 to 68,000.
· In 2002, an estimated 29% of all prisoners held in Federal Bureau of Prisons facilities were newcomers who did not get their jobs through The New York Times.
· According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), between 1997 and 2002, more than 72,000 immigrants were arrested on drug charges alone.
· New York State spends $270 million annually in criminal justice costs for aliens. It costs Illinois $40 million a year to incarcerate criminal aliens.
· In Los Angeles, roughly 95% of outstanding homicide warrants (1,200 to 1,500) are for illegal aliens, as are up to two-thirds of all felony warrants.
· A decade ago, a study by the California Department of Justice estimated that 60% of the state’s notorious 18th Street Gang (responsible for an assault or robbery every day in LA County) is comprised of those whose first crime was entering the country.
Facilitating the foregoing -- and reflecting the utter insanity of American immigration policies -- are the so-called sanctuary cities.
Under pressure from Hispanic groups, many municipalities either have ordinances or informal policies forbidding police to cooperate with federal authorities or to inquire into the status of the immigrants they encounter.
In 1979, the Los Angeles Police Commission prohibited officers from cooperating with what was then the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Other cities, like Chicago, San Francisco and New York, followed suit.
In a spectacular demonstration of suicide by political correctnesss, city councils in Portland, Maine and Seattle, Washington adopted non-cooperation policies after September 11, 2001. We wouldn’t want to unfairly burden on the next generation of Mohammed Attas.
In 1996, Congress passed a law barring municipalities from establishing their own immigration policy. The statute has been upheld by the federal courts. But that hasn’t stopped “sanctuary cities” from showing kindness to illegal aliens, including the criminals among them.
How does municipal groveling work to the advantage of the predators who’ve infiltrated America?
In an article in the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, Heather MacDonald reports that in September, 2003, Miami police apprehended Reynaldo Elias Rapalo for seven particularly vicious rapes.
The previous year, Rapalo was in custody for lewd and lascivious molestation.
Had they checked on his status then, police would have discovered that the Honduran had overstayed his visa, was here illegally, and could have handed him over to the feds.
Alas, Miami is one of those alien-friendly cities which require cops to act like the see-no-evil monkeys when it comes to illegal immigration. Seven raped women paid the price for immigrant-pandering.
There is a logical nexus between illegal immigration and crime. If individuals break the law to enter the United States, is it so surprising that many take an equally cavalier attitude toward the rest of the criminal code?
The casualties of illegal immigration are by no means confined to the victims of street crime. In California, 84 hospitals have closed their doors due to the drain of being forced to treat uninsured illegals.
According to a new study by the University of South Florida, emergency rooms in the state will soon be following the lead of California hospitals. More than half of all ER patients in Florida are uninsured -- most of them illegal.
Other victims of our lax immigration policies are bottom-rung workers who lose their jobs to illegals willing to work for a fraction of their wages, and taxpayers forced to pay for the education of anchor babies. (Rep. Nathan Deal – R, Georgia – believes that 10% of all births in the United States are to illegal aliens.)
Forget about getting tough with illegal aliens; we’re way past that. For the sake of our survival, we need to get mean.
When illegals are caught (before they’re deported), they should spend several years turning big rocks into little rocks, in prisons that make Edmond Dantes’ Chateau D’If look like the Ritz Carleton.
Troops should be stationed on our southern border with shoot-to-kill orders for anyone trying to enter the United States without a visa or proof of citizenship in hand.
As for apologists for illegal immigration – who share responsibility for the hell a Massachusetts woman went through – they should share a cell with Evandro Doirado, on a rotating basis.
