The president has yet to comment, however, on another shooting victim whose death is connected to an administration immigration policy and may pose problems for his reelection campaign.
On Jan. 2, 2011, Kesler Dufrene is alleged by local police to have shot and killed 15-year-old Ashley Chow in Miami... Dufrene, a 23-year-old illegal immigrant from Haiti, was convicted on burglary charges in 2006.
Already on probation for stealing a car, he pled guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison... The Miami Herald reported that in August 2007 a U.S. immigration judge ordered Dufrene to be deported to Haiti when his sentence was up.
However, the Obama administration halted deportations to Haiti following that nation’s devastating 2010 earthquake...
Dufrene was released in October of that year, three months prior to the January 2011 shooting that killed Chow and two others... Immigration authorities did not have to release Dufrene, despite the administration’s order to stop deportations to Haiti. In 2001, and again in 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that illegal immigrants unable to be deported could still be detained for up to six months.
Hey, Romney advisers (notice that I was polite and didn't say, "Hey, schmucks!"): maybe you could make an ad out of this all-too-typical result of Obama's disastrous open borders policy.
