Another tragedy as a result of DACA

Illegal immigrants caughtA border enforcement advocacy organization says it is an outrage that yet another illegal alien slipped through the cracks and is now accused of murder on the high seas.

Recently, The Boston Globe reported that an illegal alien from Mexico was charged with murder after allegedly killing a man on a fishing vessel near the coast of Massachusetts.

He had already been arrested earlier in the year and was previously a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient. 

Franklin Vazquez reportedly attacked several of his crewmates with a hammer and a knife. He climbed the boat's mast as his crewmates attempted to stop him. One person was killed, and two others were injured. The boat's captain sent out a mayday call for help, which was answered by a German cruise ship.

Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) Spokesman Ira Mehlman maintains that he has seen enough abuse of the system with former President Barack Obama’s DACA program.

"This was more than just the result of lack of vetting under DACA,” Mehlman pointed out. “He had been through the criminal justice system, and a judge had released him – even though DACA had been denied.”

He blamed liberal judges for the latest tragedy.

“This was, again, a consequence of activist judges – that theSy are going to thwart the enforcement of federal immigration laws,” the immigration expert contended. “So this is more of what has been going on – and people are paying for these kinds of things with their lives."

Mehlman also argued that DACA is an unconstitutional program that should never have been established in the first place.

"The fact that someone doesn't commit a crime in this country doesn't mean they should be eligible for amnesty,” the conservative activist explained. “We sort of expect that anybody that's in this country is going to abide by the laws – even if they are here illegally, so the reason for not having DACA wasn't just because there might be some criminals that might get through. The reason for not doing DACA is, A.) it was unconstitutional and B.) amnesty is just a bad idea – under any circumstance."
