30 Countries Are Refusing To Take Back Illegal Immigrants Convicted Of Serious Crimes

2 17


There are two issues that surface in this story.  The first deals with the amount of time and reasons for detaining illegal aliens and the second with the refusal of other nations to accept their citizens who are deported for criminal activity in our country.

My impression from research is that the Supreme Court ruled in 2001 (Zadvydas v. Davis) that a hearing must be held after a six-month detention for an illegal alien and that absent a showing that they were a danger to society or a flight risk, they could not be further detained.

So regarding the first issue, it seems obvious that illegal aliens can be detained for more than six months pending deportation…if they have been deemed a danger to society.  Does committing a serious crime not equate to “a danger to society”?  If the answer that is ‘yes’, then where is the breakdown between the courts and law enforcement?  As we have noted for some time now, the breakdown is, and was, created by ex-President Obama with his executive actions on immigration.  He turned the entire Immigration Act on its head!

Regarding the second issue, if foreign nations refuse to take back their criminal citizens once they have been identified for deportation from America, action needs to be taken by the federal government.  The laws are on the books and if they refuse to do so, at the very least any type of visas for the nations’ citizens to enter the United States should be stopped pending compliance and acceptance of all illegal criminals being deported.  Any assistance and/or funds to those nations should also cease.

And here is a good suggestion I recommend to The Don and Congress…Pending deportation, all criminal, illegal aliens should be held in confinement in the state of Hawaii in order to limit or reduce the amount of potential violence on mainland citizens.

Thank you very much…and have a good day!


Approximately 30 countries are refusing to accept the deportations of illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes in the U.S., according to Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar.

While these countries are refusing to accept the deportations of these criminals, the U.S. government is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries, according to the Texan congressman. There is already a law on the books which allows the U.S. to hold visas from a country that is not taking back its criminals, but according to Cuellar, the U.S. is not enforcing it.

“We’re not enforcing it, which is amazing. So now my intent is to go back to our committee on appropriations and affect their funding until they do that,” Cuellar told Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure, in an interview.

Cuellar, a Democratic member of the House Committee on Appropriations, told Attkisson that the Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants arrested for criminal activity can only be held for a certain period of time before they must be released.

“That means you’re releasing criminals into our streets because those countries refuse to take back those criminal aliens,” said Cuellar. “That’s wrong. And especially I think it’s even worse that this is already on the books, and we’re still issuing business tourist visas and student visas to countries that refuse to take back their criminal aliens. That’s wrong, and we’re hoping to change that.”

Cuellar has not been afraid to break with some of his party leadership on immigration issues in the past. He was known as one of former President Barack Obama’s fiercest critics on illegal immigration. Cuellar teamed up with Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn in 2014 to help pass a bill that would speed up the deportation of unaccompanied minors. His stance disappointed his fellow Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid.

There are many foreign countries that refuse to retake illegal immigrants convicted of crimes, according to the congressman, including Vietnam, Cuba and China. Cuellar said that diplomacy plays a factor in the government’s refusal to enforce the law, as the Department of State and other federal agencies do not want to upset foreign partners.

“But my response is, but we can upset our constituents, we can upset our way of life that we have here by allowing those criminals to be released?” said Cuellar. “And basically the response from the State Department is because you have to work with the State Department and Homeland Security. And the State Department, with all due respect, was focused on diplomacy.”

Cuellar noted that he understands the importance of diplomacy in these situations, but that it also important to prevent convicted criminals from returning to American neighborhoods. He told Attkisson that he plans to push for the U.S. government to withhold visas from countries that refuse to take back their convicted criminals.
