Just recently, Roberto Cruz Cisneros, a 45-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico who has already been deported from the United States twice, was reportedly convicted yet again of illegally re-entering the country. As a consequence, he was sentenced to time served, which amounted to roughly five months, and promptly handed over to federal officials to be deported.
Shockingly, though, rather than accept the ruling, the illegal alien and his lawyer Shahid Haque are demanding constitutional protection in a desperate attempt to stop the judge’s actions so he can remain in the country.
Apparently, they believe that by arresting the Mexican national while he was inside his home in Bitterroot Valley, Montana, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents supposedly violated the Fourth Amendment, which is a constitutional amendment that protects the privacy of U.S. citizens by barring unreasonable searches and seizures.
According to reports, Cisneros was arrested earlier this year by ICE agents after being pulled over by a local law enforcement official while driving home a month prior. During the traffic stop, the officer purportedly asked for his identification and where he lived, but didn’t inform him that he violated any laws. He then let the illegal alien continue on his way and later provided Cisneros’ information to Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) agents in Kalispell, Montana.
Following the incident, ICE employees who received the information from the HSI officials went to the address that Cisneros’ had provided and placed him under arrest for illegally re-entering the country after an order of deportation.
In the wake of the incident, however, members of Cisneros’ family have claimed that at the time of the illegal alien’s arrest, the ICE officials failed to produce a warrant and entered their home without explicit permission to do so.
“Even though the Hamilton police officer had no right to pull Roberto over in the first place, he was allowed to pass his name and address to ICE to have him arrested,” complained Haque in an email to reporters about the matter.
“This is fundamentally unfair, as it allows the police to benefit from violating a person’s rights and encourages more violations,” she added. However, many people argue that the Constitution does not deliver universal rights, just the ones for citizens.
Despite this, US District Court Judge Dana Christensen found Cisneros, who he suggested was supposedly an “outstanding” father and taxpayer as well as a productive, hard-working member of the community, guilty of illegal re-entry earlier this week.
“He returned to this country to be with his family,” explained Judge Christensen. “That, in a nutshell, is what I have before me,” she continued, adding, “but unfortunately, he is in this country illegally.”
Disturbingly, however, Christensen only sentenced him to the five months of time that he had already served, which many agree is really just a slap on the wrist.
Although some may claim that Cisneros and other supposedly “outstanding” illegal aliens should be allowed to remain in the country, conservatives recognize that the rule of law must be upheld.
Moreover, while it may be true that some undocumented immigrants are not dangerous, there are countless others who are extremely dangerous and they consequently ruin it for everyone else.
For example, several weeks ago, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, who is a 36-year-old illegal immigrant originally from Peru, was reportedly arrested by law enforcement officials in California for allegedly sexually assaulting at least four different women while purportedly posing as a rideshare driver.
A few weeks prior to that, Carlos Melara, a 21-year-old undocumented immigrant from El Salvador and an alleged member of the brutal MS-13 gang, was found guilty of participating in the brutal murder of a 15-year-old boy in the state of Massachusetts.
Apparently, it was found that Melara lured the young boy to a secluded park and then, upon arrival, ambushed him with the help of several other gang members and stabbed him to death.
And before that, Miguel “Timido” Angel Lopez-Abrego, a 19-year-old illegal alien who’s also suspected of being in the MS-13 gang, was taken into custody by Maryland law enforcement officials for allegedly helping several other MS-13 gang members kill an unidentified man, whose body was later found buried deep in the woods.
Aside from harming and killing countless American citizens, some of the people who are currently living in the country unlawfully have also degraded the integrity of the US voting system.
Earlier this year, for instance, law enforcement officials in Texas arrested Laura Janeth Garza, a 37-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico, on charges of “voter impersonation and ineligible voting” for allegedly stealing another citizen’s identity and using it to illegally vote in multiple past elections.
And just after that, the state’s law enforcement officials placed Marcela Gutierrez, who is not a US citizen, under arrest for allegedly marking votes on the ballots of numerous residents without their knowledge or consent while helping out as a volunteer at a local voting center.
