A Mexican national, who was convicted of child rape in Texas, somehow fooled immigration authorities into giving him his U.S. citizenship.
Pause for a second and let that sink in.
Once officials discovered he was a convicted child rapist he was deported.
Here is where the story gets worse.
When authorities sought him to be deported, he was serving time in jail for another rape.
To all the liberal loons saying we don’t need a wall or secure borders… wake up!
President Trump is right to say we do, and this is just one example why. Imagine the people we are letting in who are alleged ‘refugees’.
Thankfully the temporary halt to refugees and migrants from six terror-tied countries passed. It will give officials time to do their jobs right and vet these people coming into our country.
This week, U.S. District Court Judge Vanessa Gilmore issued an order stripping 54-year-old Jose Arizmendi of his U.S. citizenship and taking away all rights and privileges, information released by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed.
In April 1996, Arizmendi had pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child in Harris County. According to prosecutors, soon after entering his plea, he applied for naturalization. During a subsequent interview about his application in October 1996, Arizmendi was asked by an immigration official if he had ever been arrested, indicted, charged, or detained for breaking any laws while in the country.
“Relying on his answer,” the U.S. government granted his naturalization application and Arizmendi became a U.S citizen at the end of 1996.
In February 2015, almost 20 years after Arizmendi had raped a child and been granted U.S. citizenship, authorities filed a complaint to strip him of it. At the time, Arizmendi was in a Mexican jail serving an 18-month sentence in a separate case after he was convicted of rape in Mexico.
“We will aggressively pursue denaturalization in cases where individuals lie on their naturalization applications, especially in a circumstance like this one, which involved a child sex abuser. Civil denaturalization cases are an important law enforcement tool for protecting the public, including our children,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Chad A. Readler of the Justice Department’s Civil Division.
