Merrick Garland’s bungled response to illegal immigrant criminals

Any lingering doubts about the Democrats’ mad scheme were removed this week when Merrick Garland, the nominee for U.S. attorney general, appeared before a Senate committee.

With so much bad national news — the end of American energy independence, Congressional attempts to gut the First Amendment, playing footsy with the mad mullahs of Tehran, the destruction of women’s sports, etc. — sometimes we overlook what may be the Democrats’ most deranged attempt to destroy the United States.

Open borders.

After four years of the feds’ struggling to regain control of our own national security, the Democrats are going to open the floodgates to the Third World again.

This is welcome news for MS-13, fentanyl dealers, Muslim terrorists and millions of grifters who merely yearn to live the “everything-free-in-America” dream like the Tsarnaevs and millions of others before them.

Any lingering doubts about the Democrats’ mad scheme were removed this week when Merrick Garland, the nominee for U.S. attorney general, appeared before a Senate committee.

“Do you believe,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., asked him, “that illegal entry at America’s border should remain a crime?”

This was Garland’s response. All dialogue guaranteed verbatim.

“Well I haven’t thought about uh that question uh uh I just haven’t thought about that question. I I think that you know the the president has uh made clear that we are uh a country of uh with a borders and with a concern about national security um I don’t know of a proposal to uh decriminalize but still still make it uh unlawful uh to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question. I haven’t thought about it um … .”

What a boob. No wonder Obama wanted him on the Supreme Court. He’s a regular Sgt. Schultz from “Hogan’s Heroes.” He knows nothing.

Of course it doesn’t really matter that Garland hasn’t “thought” about illegal immigration crime or anything else. Whoever’s really in charge now in D.C. has made the decision to resume the importation of a foreign underclass that will be forever dependent on government, i.e., Democrats.

Of course there’s a downside for American citizens who don’t have trust funds — being overrun in their own neighborhoods by staggering levels of crime, drunken driving, sexual abuse, previously eradicated infectious diseases and welfare dependency.

Let’s consider some recent, typical illegal-immigrant crime in Massachusetts. These are all from the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston this month.

We begin with an illegal Dominican living large in Lynn — Rafael Bautista Abreu, age 63.

He pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to using Puerto Rican documents to rip off the welfare system.

“Bautista Abreu fraudulently received $12,222 in Food Stamps by using the stolen identity. He also received $16,080 in federally-funded MassHealth benefits from October 2008 through July 2016.”

Then there’s “Jane Doe” from Springfield. Increasingly, the feds are unable to determine the identity of these foreign flim-flammers, but I think we can be fairly certain “Jane” is not an Americano.

Senorita Doe was arrested last week and charged with aggravated identity theft and, you guessed it, welfare fraud.

She used a citizen’s “Social Security number as her own on an application for Section 8 housing assistance benefits in October 2018. In addition, Doe is charged with stealing Social Security disability benefits from August 2017 to August 2018, and Section 8 benefits from April 2019 through February 2021.

Do you think Merrick Garland or Joe Biden care about any of this fraud? Do they ever read the Boston Police Department’s own reports saying the drug trade here is controlled by illegal Dominican gangs?

Speaking of which, meet Pedro Wilson Hernandez-Castillo, 49, just indicted for his fifth illegal entry into the U.S.

“According to court documents, Hernandez-Castillo illegally re-entered the United States after being deported in August 2018, following a conviction for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and heroin.”

He’d been deported three times earlier, in August 2011, July 2000 and January 1999.

To paraphrase George W. Bush, he was only selling the heroin and cocaine Americans couldn’t be bothered selling.

Ever hear of a Brazilian gang called Primeiro Comando da Massachusetts (PCM)?

Come on down Breno Henrique DaSilva, a 22-year-old Brazilian illegally living in Somerville until he was sentenced to 108 months in prison for assorted armed robberies and kidnapping.

Care to guess the “gateway” cities in which PCM commits “illegal sale of firearms, drug trafficking, robberies, kidnapping and armed assaults?”

“Boston, Malden, Everett, Somerville, Framingham and Peabody, among others.”

By the way, these may be the final reports of illegal-alien crime that we get out of the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston for a good long while. Friday is U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling’s final day, and he’ll soon by replaced by some Social Justice Warrior.

Now that Lelling’s gone, what’s the over-under on how long it will take U.S. Attorney Snowflake to dismiss the federal charges against state Judge Shelley Joseph? She’s the former member of the Democrat State Committee who let a dangerous illegal Dominican career criminal out the box door of the Newton District courthouse so he could escape being lugged by ICE agents?

I’m betting Judge Joseph will be cut loose by the end of March. Any takers?
