Illegal Immigrant Was Deported Five Times, Now He’s Busted for Major Crime

What is the left’s argument for illegal immigration? That it’s compassionate? I guess Democrats have no compassion for American citizens. Our broken system has allowed this one illegal to sneak back into America — even after being deported five times. Now, he’s been arrested for breaking a major law, yet again.

Democrats really have no moral high ground when it comes to illegal immigration. Their support for “undocumented” immigrants stems from a sick desire to exploit them for votes. Liberals don’t seem to care that these people are smuggled like cargo into the country, mistreated by drug cartels and violent criminals, only to be abused by companies that like slave labor. But whatever it takes to win, eh Jerry Brown?

The fallout of their undying support for illegal immigration has taken its toll. Americans are suffering across the spectrum. Thanks to illegal immigration, wages in many jobs stay low. That’s when the jobs aren’t being taken by illegal laborers. That’s the most positive aspect of illegal immigration.

Many illegal aliens do not respect our country, way of life, or laws. Far too many treat our society like garbage. Numerous cities on the West Coast are little more than trash heaps, thanks to lax policies that refuse to punish illegals for their constant abuse. San Francisco is swimming in garbage, syringes, and human filth; it’s also one of the largest sanctuary cities in the country.

We don’t even have to point to drug cartels like MS-13 to see how illegal immigration is harming Americans. Everyday illegal aliens jeopardize our safety.

Mario Santos-Ochoa has been deported FIVE times, only to sneak back into the country. Once again, he’s been busted by the police for the same offense that he does over and over again.

A Mexican native who has been living in the U.S. illegally for 28 years was sentenced to nine months in jail for his third DUI in Virginia.

Mario Santos-Ochoa, 44, was sentenced to nine months in jail on Monday and immigration authorities placed a detainer on him, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. He could be deported again after serving his time.

Santos-Ochoa has four children, ages 9 to 21 years old, who were all born in the U.S., his attorney, Catherine Lawler said. He was deported five times between September 1997 and September 2014.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Carissa Cutrell said Santos-Ochoa “illegally re-entered the United States again at some point thereafter [September 2014].”

Santos-Ochoa was convicted in federal court in Texas of “re-entering the U.S. after being deported — in 2009, 2011 and 2012 — and sentenced to seven months, 180 days and 15 months, respectively, in federal prison,” court documents stated.

In November, Santos-Ochoa was pulled over after a Chesterfield County police officer said they had to stop short after he tried to change lanes. Santos-Ochoa’s blood alcohol content was 0.11 percent, 0.3 percent above the legal limit. Two years before the incident, Santos-Ochoa was convicted of his second DUI. He was also convicted three times of “giving a false identity to police.” [Source: Fox News]

Isn’t that nice? The man is a convicted felon. He’s been deported five times. He’s been busted for drinking and driving at least three times. And he “could be” deported again after serving his time.

I’m sorry, but “could be”? Meaning, there’s a chance they’ll just let him free? The man is a criminal. He broke the law to enter our country. And while here, he’s continued to endanger lives, flagrantly insulting our laws.

Why should he be given a chance to stay here anymore? He should be booted out once and for all.

Most states have a “three strikes, you’re out” policy for lawbreakers. They are given two chances to reform. Santos-Ochoa was given numerous chances. He broke every one. It’s clear he does not respect the United States and our laws. He’d rather insult our border and drive drunk, endangering everyone — including his own children.

Yet he will most-likely get off scot-free, thanks to corrupt Democrats and our broken system. Without a border wall, many more like him will be able to sneak over. I fear this story will not end until he takes a life behind the wheel. Only then will the government deal with this man properly.
