Illegal Immigrants Attack Employer

JULY 18, 2006

It took the brutal attack of an Ohio construction company owner for federal authorities to finally hit the streets and arrest illegal aliens–many of them violent criminals–in that state.

The owner of a Warren County construction company was recently assaulted and shot at by a group of illegal immigrants simply because he fired one of their buddies who could not provide documentation of his immigration status in the U.S.

Police said the fired man returned for revenge with eight other Mexican men, armed with three handguns and several baseball bats. The owner was viciously assaulted and his truck was severely vandalized before an ambulance took him to the hospital with multiple injuries.

The Department of Homeland Security apparently took note and sent agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to round up 154 illegal immigrants in Ohio. The immigrants had been caught entering the country illegally and were ordered deported but never left and U.S. officials never bothered to find them.

Many had remained undetected by authorities for more than a decade after being “deported,” 20 had been charged with serious crimes and one was a member of a well-known Mexican street gang notorious for its ruthless violence.

Yet these serious lawbreakers were allowed to remain in the U.S. for many years, illustrating the federal government’s repeated failure to protect its citizens from these invaders.

Immigrations Human Cost documents the enormous number of Americans who have been harmed by the criminals who pass through the nation’s open borders, listing specific cases with pictures and details. A “particularly tragic example” features one of the snipers who terrorized the Washington DC area for three weeks in 2002. As a stowaway, John Lee Malvo should have been immediately deported when he was apprehended by U.S. authorities, but instead was released in the country.
