A bill for the punishment of countries that refuse to have their illegal immigrants criminals is two years too late to save Casey Chadwick, but the Texas Congressman behind him, figures it’s the least we can do in Washington.
Chadwick was murdered in the year 2015 by Jean-Jacques, an illegal immigrant from Haiti, and one of thousands released on U.S. roads, which serve every year, according to the prison time, because their home countries refuse to deportation. But a proposal by Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, the Criminal Alien Deportation Enforcement Act, would force you to take such countries, their citizens, or danger, foreign aid and travel visa privileges.
“The problem is, hundreds of Americans are robbed, mugged, raped or murdered every year by criminal aliens, then they fire back on the road, because their country of origin refuse to take them,” said Babin. “I have personally met with a number of these victims, or if the victim is deceased, I met with their families. It is heart-wrenching.”

To confess when Haiti refused, Jacques, ICE was forced to release him, under a 2001 Supreme court ruling.
Chadwick case is among the most striking, said Babin. Jacques prison was sentenced to 60 years last year for stabbing Chadwick, 25, to death in their Norwich apartment. The killer had in the United States illegally since 1992, had already spent 17 years in prison for attempted murder and possession of a firearm without a permit.
He was not deported, after he time, but it was not for the lack of American efforts. Jacques was listed to repatriate as a passenger on three charter flights to Haiti in June, August and October of 2012), but each time, when the Haitian government refused it.
A 2001 Supreme court ruling, Zadvydas v. Davis ruled that illegal immigrants Ticket for the deportation are not accepted but, taken from their home countries, for an indefinite period of time. Jacques was held for 205 days, but ultimately released, with less than six months before he Chadwick killed.

“For the sake of Casey and thousands of other Americans, to the victims, it is time that we start looking at the safety of our citizens first and stop this revolving door allows that dangerous criminals should be deported-back on our streets,” said Babin.
A house Oversight and government Reform Committee hearing in April, documented that since 2013, 86,288 illegal immigrants have committed 231,074 crimes after release from prison. Many of these illegal immigrants ultimately deported, but some of the 2,166 who had served, were published in their time for the various crimes in the past year, if their home countries refused to take them back.

Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, believes his bill has a great chance to be right.
Babin bill, the Department of Homeland Security report would be to the Congress every three months the names of the uncooperative countries. The Federal government would then withhold development aid to these countries, while the State Department would travel visas to be suspended.
President-elect, Donald Trump, bill faces a “new interest” because Trump “has expressed its strong support for the punishment of countries to accept the refuse of the deportations,” said Babin.
The problem is “out of control” agreed Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies.
There are now more than 20 countries, to cooperate in the refuse with the United States, and more than 60, the process is said to be very difficult, Vaughan.
“It’s not just Cuba and Cambodia; now it is China, Bangladesh, Nigeria, and many others,” she said.
The State Department visa sanctions imposed only once, the Gambia, only a few months ago, which worked right away, Vaughan said.
“All you had to do to stop the issuance of visas Gambian government officials, and all of a sudden, the cooperation started within a few weeks, which is fast in the diplomatic context,” Vaughan said.
Under current law, the State Department must impose sanctions, at the request of the Department of Homeland Security, but that rarely happens, said Vaughan.
Claude Arnold, a former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of Homeland Security investigations, said that in the past administrations, DHS would have this question at the State Department, but nothing would happen. He believes that under the proposed bill, Congressional oversight.
“The USA is the center of international trade. As soon as companies are not allowed to to the USA are International, that’s all it would take,” Arnold said. “These countries would accept their deported immediately, because they kind of pressure, their citizenship, which would hurt financially.”
Neither the State Department nor the Department of Homeland Security, commented on the pending legislation.
But an official of the State Department FoxNews.com said facilitate the removal of aliens subject to a final order of removal, and in particular those who is a danger to national security or public safety, a “top priority”.
“Intensive diplomatic efforts [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and the State Department have to significant increases in cooperation among the 23 countries, which is currently on ICE, Uncooperative list, with almost half of these countries improving their records on the issuing of travel documents, accept charter deportee flights with deportees, and on formal arrangements for future relocations in the last few months,” the spokesman said.
A spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Agency, the work is told through “diplomatic channels” to ensure that other countries accept the timely return of their nationals in accordance with international law.
But Babin said he would fight for tougher restrictions.
“Many of these countries are still millions and millions of dollars of American taxpayers, and then not under their criminals back,” said Babin.
