Twenty-three illegal aliens that were previously convicted of homicide in the U.S. have been charged in Arizona with illegally reentering the U.S. since February, according to monthly reports from the U.S. attorney for Arizona.
Types of crime committed by aliens illegally reentering the U.S. from February through October 2021 (remember, this is just for Arizona):
- 400 convicted of "violent crime"
- 320 convicted of driving under the influence
- 846 convicted of "drug crime"
In February alone, for example, the office reported that 190 foreign nationals in Arizona had been charged with "illegal reentry" to this country. Among these, 151 had already been convicted of a non-immigration crime in the United States. These included 44 aliens who had what the U.S. attorney's office described as "violent crime convictions." Two of these had already been convicted of "homicide" in the United States.
Here's the monthly numbers from Arizona alone on illegally reentering aliens in 2021 that were previously convicted of homicide:
- February: 2
- March: 3
- April: 2
- May: 3
- June: 6
- July: 1
- August: 4
- September: 2
- Total: 23
You have to wonder how many of the 2 million other illegal aliens that have entered the U.S. in the last 12 months (which surged once Joe Biden took office) had similar criminal backgrounds but slipped through the cracks...
🧐 Meanwhile, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified in the Senate Judiciary Committee last week on "terrorism."
He said "the primary threat" to the U.S. is "homegrown violent extremists (HVEs)" and "domestic violent extremists (DVEs)."
"In the years immediately following 9/11, the primary threat evolved from foreign terrorists to homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) -- the individuals in America who are radicalized by a foreign terrorist organization's ideology," he said. "The threat has evolved further and now includes domestic violent extremists (DVEs) -- U.S.-based lone actors and small groups who seek to further political or social goals wholly or in part through unlawful acts of force or violence, without direction or inspiration from a foreign terrorist group or foreign power."
"These actors are motivated by various factors, including biases against minorities, perceived government overreach, conspiracy theories promoting violence, and false narratives often spread online."
"U.S.-based lone actors and small groups who are inspired by a broad range of ideologies, including HVEs and DVEs, pose the most significant and persistent threat to the homeland."
Does Mayorkas mean the "homeland" that's supposed to actually have borders and enforce just immigration laws?
If not, then I don't know what his idea of a "homeland" or "security" even is.
