I know that in liberal circles federal immigration officers are considered evil for enforcing the law, but this is ridiculous. An illegal alien has taken refuge in a Denver church to avoid deportation because she believes that Immigration and Customs Enforcement won’t dare set foot in a place of worship. ICE Agents are not vampires who can’t enter the hallowed ground of a church; the law is the law and this illegal alien broke it.
Fox News reports:
A Mexican woman trying to avoid deportation took refuge in a Denver church Wednesday after U.S. immigration authorities denied her request to remain in the country, the latest case to rattle the immigrant community as the White House promises to boost enforcement.
Jeanette Vizguerra skipped her scheduled check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in the suburb of Centennial.
ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer said Vizguerra was an “enforcement priority” because she has two criminal convictions. She was arrested and convicted of driving without a license and forging documents, including providing a false Social Security number. She was given her final deportation order in 2011, but thanks to Obama’s lax immigration enforcement has been granted several extensions. Those extensions are up and she must go.
While liberals and immigration activists will most certainly blame this on Donald Trump, it is important to remember that this illegal alien’s deportation order came under Obama. I’m sure that doesn’t matter because facts are to liberals as holy water is to vampires.
Vizguerra took refuge in the church, a common tactic to avoid deportation because authorities generally don’t enter places of worship…
I can only imagine the next tactic illegal aliens will employ is to ward off ICE agents with cloves of garlic. Or maybe they could only come out during the day because everyone knows sunlight sets vampires on fire.
Vizguerra said that recent high-profile arrests and deportations freaked her out about her own status. Her plan to deal with that was to make a big public showing and call attention to herself. Brilliant.
The truly crazy thing about this (okay, one of the crazy things) is that this woman plans on living in a small room in the basement of the church for apparently the rest of her life. She would rather live in a small dank basement than face up to her crimes and eventually live free in her home country of Mexico.
She won’t be able to work, shop, or even go on a walk and she has to know eventually the feds are going to get her. ICE might even brave the holy water and wooden stakes to arrest her inside the church. This will set the liberals off, but so what, they are outraged by everything. A little more outrage is going to make that much of a difference.
