reuters.com reports: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, backed legislation to encompass Trump’s “four pillars” of immigration reform, which include plans to build the wall, end the visa lottery program and impose curbs on visas for the families of legal immigrants.
“This proposal has my support and during this week of fair debate I believe it deserves support of every senator who’s ready to move beyond making points and actually making a law,” McConnell, said in a speech on the Senate floor.
The Trump “pillar” of immigration that is easiest for Democrats to accept is protecting some 1.8 million Dreamers who were brought illegally to the United States as children. Many Democrats are reluctant to help fund the wall, which is aimed at keeping illegal immigrants out but is seen by many lawmakers as too expensive and too inefficient.
Previously deported rapist Wilmer Avila-Gamez, an illegal immigrant from Honduras, was arrested in Arizona recently.
Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector arrested a previously deported Honduran national with a prior conviction for raping a woman in California. The arrest came shortly after the man crossed from Mexico into Arizona.
While working on patrol near the border community of Arivaca, Arizona, agents encountered 44-year-old Wilmer Avila-Gamez, an illegal alien from Honduras. Agents transported him to their station for processing and a background investigation, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
After conducting a biometric background investigation, agents discovered Avila-Gomes is a previously deported alien with a criminal history in California. A court in Santa Ana, California, convicted the Honduran national in April 2011 on a felony charge of “Rape by Force.” Immigration officers deported the man following his prison term.
Avila-Gomez now faces new felony charges of Aggravated Re-Entry after Removal as a Convicted Sex Offender. If convicted on this charge, he could receive up to 20 years in federal prison.
Last week, a federal judge handed down prison sentences to two illegal aliens in Detroit, Michigan, who had re-entered the U.S. after being deported.
