Another victim to our lax illegal immigration policy

Miguel Alexander Vargas
Another one slips through the cracks-another innocent person dies

It's happened again. First we have the senseless murder of Jamiel Shaw Jr in Los Angeles by an illegal alien gang member fresh out of jail without being turned over to ICE. Then we have the murder of a father and 2 sons (Bologna family) in San Francisco by an illegal alien gang member who had been released from jail in the Bay Area without ICE being notified. Now this.

Miguel Alexander Vargas (25), a native of El Salvador and illegal alien, is charged with the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend, Annette Angelina Alvarado (23) in Placentia, California near Los Angeles. On January 27, 2009, Vargas pleaded guilty to a charge of domestic violence against Alvarado. Nine days later, he killed her, stabbing her over 20 times in front of her two small children.

At this time, an internal ICE review is underway to determine why ICE did not deport Vargas after the January 27 plea. At this point, we don't even know if he was actually in ICE custody.

Oh, by the way. This was not the first time Vargas had run afoul of the law. He had a US arrest record going back to 2002 for misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, driving without a license, a conviction for felony gang assault in 2007 and, according to the Orange County Register article, was sentenced to a year in prison on November 21, 2008 for violation of probation. Why was he on the streets 3 months later? You're asking me?

Vargas was arrested (after the murder) in Tijuana on February 16 and turned over to American authorities.

So here we have yet another case of a gang-banger with multiple arrests going through the justice system and being turned back onto the streets of our cities without being deported. And yet another victim has paid with her life for our negligence.

The depressing details can be found here in an article by the Orange County Register

When do we as a people say to our elected leaders, "Enough"?
