DHS Must Explain Why it Released Convicted Felon

This week, the American people learned that a twice-convicted illegal alien felon from Haiti, Kesler Dufrene, went on a murder spree, killing three people in Florida. The murders occurred just two months after Dufrene finished his sentence and was released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE released him in spite of an immigration judge having previously ordered him to be removed from the country upon completing his sentence. He escaped deportation due to an order issued by President Obama ceasing all deportations to Haiti following the earthquake in 2010 (tens of thousands of Haitians living in the U.S. are currently protected by Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that was granted after the earthquake; however, Dufrene was not eligible for TPS because he was a convicted felon). Rather than accept responsibility, DHS is falsely claiming that their hands were tied by U.S. Supreme Court decisions that left them no choice but to put Dufrene back onto the streets of Florida.

The Supreme Court decisions DHS cited as its excuse for allowing Dufrene to remain in the country prevent indefinite detention of people whose deportation is not “reasonably foreseeable.” However, it is not the law that prevented Dufrene’s deportation, but rather DHS’s own decision not to deport anyone, including criminals, to Haiti. In other words, the only reason he could not be deported in a “reasonably foreseeable” timeframe is because DHS is choosing not deport anyone any time soon. Simply put, it was not the Supreme Court that allowed the release of this twice-convicted felon- it was the Administration’s policy choice.

    Obama doesn’t care about immigrants, legal or the ever popular illegal immigrant. What Obama and his lackey Napolitano care about are VOTES and Obama is certain that his elimination of Voter ID will ensure his communist friends at ACORN that every one of those illegals will be able to vote for him. While Obama is a huge scumbag, certainly Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano are not that far away from his level of “scum”.

    Too bad the two most responsible people in Washington are not two of those that Dufrene killed. That way more Americans might have a chance of surviving the (yet to be) killings that other illegals they won’t deport have since done or are yet to do. It would be a good trade- the two of them for the numerous others.

      pretty scary is’nt it ? but yet you and i can’t be trusted with a weapon – it certainly would be the best thing to have happened to this country if that rampage had turned to D.C. –

    This is just a small tip of the iceberg. You will see more of this type of horror as more third world citizens make their homes here on Obama’s invitation. All the politicians will deny responsibility for this madness to keep from having the blood of these innocent victims on their hands. Here are three more victims laid at your feet Obama. How many more have to die before you rid the nation of these criminals?

      I’m sorry to say I don’t think he cares how many Americans die at the hands of illegals or anyone else. He was born an island and raised there and in Indonesia thousands of miles from the mainland. This country is here for his use in promoting his agenda. He does not love it, or the people who live here and worked to try to keep it a good place to live.
