(Hamilton, Ohio) A 37-year-old illegal alien, Jose Valenzuela, was arrested yesterday for failure to register as a sex offender. Valenzuela was convicted in 1998 of a sex crime involving a juvenile girl and classified as a sex offender by the court.
However, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported him in 2004.
Deputies received information that Valenzuela was back in Butler County and took him into custody for failure to register.
Officials said when they asked why he came back to Butler County after deportation, Valenzuela said, "they never told me I couldn't come back." [ed. bold]
So, deporting illegal aliens isn't an adequate solution to the problem. Authorities must also tell them not to come back -- as if that would make a difference. Heh
Aliens break the law without consequence by sneaking into the U.S. in the first place. If they are deported (a big "if"), their return should be expected since nothing prevents them from sneaking across the border again. And, other than deportation, there are no, nada, zilch consequences. Sneak in, sent back, sneak in, sent back -- it's a do-loop.
This is so stupid. As long as the border is essentially imaginary, deportation is meaningless. The illegal aliens simply get American-taxpayer-funded trips back home and then return as they please.
They never told him???
Digger, I process a lot of cases dealing with illegal aliens (they are kept in jail with a no-bail INS Title 18 hold)
Most of 'em plead out of charges (every thing from indentity theft to felony hit-n-run) and part of the PLEA agreement, right there in the court minute order, is explicit admonishment that after sentencing and deportation that they are NOT to return to the US without the explicit permission of INS or DHS.
I doubt that states other than CA do any differently.
