For those in the cheap seats still wondering why on Earth the U.S. would ever need a border wall, among other national security upgrades, look no further than than yet another case of a dangerous illegal immigrant being arrested on U.S. soil.
According to Fox News:
An illegal immigrant – who’s served at least three stints in U.S. prisons for sexually abusing children -- was reportedly arrested during an early morning traffic stop in Texas on Wednesday.
Marvin Yovani Mejia Ramos, 50, had given a fake name but was arrested after the deputy who stopped him on 69 North ran an onsite fingerprint scan that revealed his identity, KHOU.com reported. A Mexican national, Ramos was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security after his arrest.
This latest instance wouldn’t be the first time Ramos used a fake name.
Ramos re-entered the U.S. soon after being deported in 2013. Authorities say that Ramos was arrested in Houston for a DWI under an another fake name in 2015.
People who support open borders will argue that the U.S. has a ton of its own criminals, which is true. But those criminals, if caught, typically face the repercussions of their actions. A decent amount of illegal immigrants do, too. However, if they hadn’t entered the country illegally in the first place, a lot of those crimes would’ve never happened.
See the difference?
As for Ramos, his rap sheet looks like a giant laundry list of horrible.
According to a Facebook post by Precinct 4 Constable’s Office of Montgomery County, Texas:
Mejia Ramos showed to have been a convicted felon and served 6 years for Perjury in Los Angeles, served 6 years for Sexual Assault of a Child and 2 more years for Lewd Acts with a Child Under the Age of 14, also in Los Angeles. Mejia Ramos has also served 8 years in Lancaster for Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child. Since then he has been deported in 2013 but soon returned, only to be arrested in 2015 for DWI in the Houston area, again under a fake name.
One bad apple certainly shouldn’t ruin the whole bunch. But when you’re first action in attempting to enter the U.S. is to intentionally break the law, you don’t make the best case for yourself, while also unjustly shedding a bad light on your community.
