Posted on 05/20/2005 6:44:29 PM PDT by Tacis
Is there a list or a site that collects information on the illegal criminal Mexican aliens in the US? Even with the media bias in favor of these cucarachas, there seem to be many stories about rapes, robberies and killings by illegal visitors to our country.
Just as there is a source that collects information on the instances where a life is saved by a citizens legal use of a gun, information to prove the vast extent of Mexican crime against Americans ought to be tabulated and available.
How would we accomplish this? Is there a site that spearheads the campaign demanding that our government do it's job and secure the border? Are they doing any such data collection?
I've also recently seen many reports of criminal Mexicans responsible for traffic deaths either because they were drunk or didn't have US level driving skills or had stolen a car/SUV that wrecked.
Does anyone collect this? Can we establish a FreeRepublic "topic" that would permit a year end search?
A very good post. there just is very ittle documented stuff on illegals in one place.
Here are a few I found - brace yourself, it is pretty scary:
I will post some more as I find 'em, but 1 thing I can say for sure, this will be 1 of the most frightening threads here.
Read it and weep.
See C-Span's complicity in encouraging illegals from mexico.
In trying to fix our illegal alien problem (and the horrific wave of violent rapes, murders, drug trafficking, burglaries and armed robberies that comes with it) our government has successfully managed to make it worse. Far worse. All of these major crimes against society have sky rocketed in the past three years. Americans are the victims. Our Open Border Lobbying government is the cause.

This Backgrounder focuses on ICE, which is responsible for, among other things, enforcement of federal immigration laws in the interior of the United States.]
Thanks for the ping. Thanks to all - linkers/researchers. New media bump!

Why Is DOJ Keeping Convicted Illegal Alien Data Under Wraps?
Did you know thousands of illegal aliens who have served time for serious crimes they committed in America are still wondering our streets? Strangely, the Justice Department is refusing a Cox Newspapers Washington Bureau Freedom of Information Act request for data that journalists and the public could use to help locate these criminals so they can be deported, as required by federal law.
This case is the focus of my latest column for Knight Ridder Tribune's regular series, Focus on Freedom of Information.
WARNING: This column will make you very angry!
By law, illegal aliens convicted of heinous crimes rape, murder, child molestation are to be deported once they've served their jail terms. But lately, thousands of them have simply been let go. And Justice Department officials have refused to release a government database that could help journalists and private citizens find these aliens.
No one knows exactly how many of these criminals there are nationwide, but Cox Newspapers Washington Bureau journalists Eliot Jaspin and Julia Malone examined Georgia state prison records in 2002 and found numerous cases like convicted pedophile Miguel Angel Gordoba. He served a four-year sentence for molesting a 2-year-old girl in Alma, Ga., then disappeared following his release.
Federal officials are required by law to deport people like Cordoba when they are released from prison, but immigration officials are often nowhere to be found when the illegal alien felons walk away from jail. Federal investigators say there are thousands of Miguel Angel Gordobas. As scary a prospect as that is, this story gets worse. Much worse.
After finding so many cases in Georgia using state records, the Cox reporters decided to look at federal data to get a better idea of the scope of the problem. They submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs seeking an electronic copy of all records collected on alien inmates in the government's Grants Management System. The GMS funds are used by Washington to reimburse state and local governments for the cost of incarcerating illegal aliens like Gordoba.
The Justice Department refused to provide any of the data sought by Jaspin and Malone. Why? For three reasons, according to Rachal Madan, Office of Justice Programs' general counsel: (1) the grants data are exempt from disclosure under the FOIA because it concerns matters "of internal significance in which the public has no substantial interest," (2) processing the data "would place an unjustifiable administrative burden" on the Office of Justice Programs, and (3) releasing the data would "constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of (the convicted illegal aliens') personal privacy."
In other words, the government refused to make the data available because the public that's you and me, our families and neighbors wouldn't benefit, the agency can't be bothered and it would be wrong to violate the criminals' privacy!
Such "reasoning" defies understanding. It is the most outrageous violation of the concept underlying the FOIA taxpayers have a right to know what their government is doing with their tax dollars I've seen in my two-decades-plus as a journalist in our nation's capitol.
This case also illustrates, however, the value of the FOIA. The public clearly has a "substantial interest" in knowing the identities of criminals among us; that's why we see "Wanted by the FBI" posters in every U.S. Post Office in America. It's why police so often ask the public for help in finding accused criminals who are at large. It's why the "Amber" system works so well in finding kidnapped kids.
Think what would happen if photos of these thousands of illegal alien criminals and other information about them gleaned from the data by Jaspin and Malone became available on Cox Newspaper's Web site. You can be sure lots these thugs would deport themselves as soon as possible. Federal officials, aided by citizens, thanks to the FOIA, would catch many more. My guess is that incoming Attorney General Alberto Gonzales disagrees with Madan's view that her agency can't be bothered to aid such an outcome by compiling the data sought by Jaspin and Malone.
As for Madan's fear of violating a convicted illegal alien's privacy, here's another thing to think about: Homeland Security officials admit they can't adequately protect our borders. Things are so bad in Arizona that citizens there are volunteering to help monitor the border.
How many terrorists lurk among those thousands of convicted felons who should have been deported? Which is more important protecting an illegal alien's alleged privacy or finding and deporting somebody planning the next 9/11?
Cox Newspapers is appealing the Office of Justice Programs denial, but FOIA appeals often take years to complete and always costs thousands of dollars that most media organizations simply don't have. You can help. Ask OJP's boss, Assistant Attorney General Deborah Daniels, to release the data sought by Cox. Her address is: 810 Seventh Street NW, Washington, D.C., 20001.

Keep posting that.
"Sanctuary laws, present in such cities as Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Austin, Houston, and San Francisco, generally forbid local police officers from inquiring into a suspects immigration status or reporting it to federal authorities. Such laws place a higher priority on protecting illegal aliens from deportation than on protecting legal immigrants and citizens from assault, rape, arson, and other crimes.
"Lets say a Los Angeles police officer sees a member of Mara Salvatrucha hanging out at Hollywood and Vine. The gang member has previously been deported for aggravated assault; his mere presence back in the country following deportation is a federal felony. Under the prevailing understanding of Los Angeless sanctuary law (special order 40), if that officer merely inquires into the gangbangers immigration status, the officer will face departmental punishment."
"To get the felon off the street, the cop has to wait until he has probable cause to arrest the gangbanger for a non-immigration crime, such as murder or robbery. It is by no means certain that that officer will successfully build a non-immigrant case against the gangster, however, since witnesses to gang crime often fear deadly retaliation if they cooperate with the police. Meanwhile, the gangbanger is free to prey on law-abiding members of his community, many of them immigrants themselves."
Can anyone wonder why liberals and socialists have been the cause of so much human suffering in the last century. They will cause the complete destruction of our once great land....given the time.
From INS lax on deporting illegal alien criminals (December 15, 2002) - Miguel Angel Gordoba is a pedophile. He is also an illegal immigrant. After he finished serving his sentence for molesting a 2-year-old girl in rural Alma, Ga., everyone assumed that he would be deported to his native Mexico, as required by federal law. Everyone was wrong. Gordoba left prison and disappeared into the community because the Immigration and Naturalization Service never deported him.
