A little old, but seems to confirm my previous supposition. Tech companies are hiring cheap foreign labor (less expensive).

One of our finer "immigrants", who doesn't contribute to the crime statistics in the US. Now our tax dollars will keep him here for another 10 years.

RALEIGH
An El Salvadoran man who has been deported 10 times after criminal convictions was sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison Wednesday for illegally entering the United States again.

Jose Alfonso Rodriguez-Garcia, 54, was sentenced in a Raleigh federal court to 115 months behind bars after he was convicted of illegal re-entry of an aggravated felon.

A federal grand jury handed up a one-count indictment against Rodriguez-Garcia on May 3, 2017. Days later, on May 22, Garcia pleaded guilty to the offense, U.S. Attorney Robert J. Higdon Jr. said in a news release.
Federal authorities found Rodriguez-Garcia in Wake County following his arrest on charges of second-degree forcible rape.

Higdon said previous deportations followed convictions for burglary, receiving stolen property, grand theft, theft, attempt to distribute a controlled substance, resisting a public officer, trespassing, possession of controlled substances, auto theft, evading arrest, assault on a female, deported alien found in the United States, illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien and illegal re-entry by a previously deported aggravated felon.

Rodriguez-Garcia disregarded the laws of the United States for years, despite multiple deportations and “conviction after convictions,” Higdon said in the news release.

“With this 115-month sentence, the American citizens, and in particular those of the Eastern District, are safer today because it has put a stop to Rodriguez-Garcia’s treating our borders as a revolving door,” Higdon said.

hey were his convictions under obama... again Obama was the first to focus on criminals and deporting them. darn he should have deported criminal trump...

his rap sheet looks cleaner than Trumps.... can you get us a copy of trumps tax returns and a list of people he has paid off for raping and sexually harassing them.

as I said one time when I was in a car line to cross the border at I think Mexicali, a bunch of people put up a ladder and were in the USA and border patrol was catching them and then another ladder went up maybe 300 or so yards away and about 10-20 climbed and border patrol was with their hands full at the other location and all these people entered about 200 yards from the official entry point. Again they could not stop people right there from over and i bet at the same time people were going under.

That's a joke, go to any one of the thousands of home depot stores throughout America and there will be dozens of illegal immigrants standing around waiting for jobs. None of them pay taxes. This is a fact. Most receive food stamps in addition to their under-the-table earnings.

P.S.
Illegal and legal immigrants are unenrolling from receiving welfare benefits following reports that President Trump’s administration will soon bar foreign nationals from permanently resettling in the United States if they are documented as being a burden on American taxpayers

The architect of Trump's anti-immigration policies.
Quote:
By Sanjana Karanth

Democrats in the House and the Senate introduced a joint resolution Thursday demanding the resignation of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller over his white nationalist views and racist, anti-immigrant policies.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) introduced the resolution in their respective chambers. It condemns Miller “for his trafficking in bigotry, hatred, and divisive political rhetoric and policies that are inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as a Senior Advisor to the President,” according to the text.

“Stephen Miller is the hateful force behind the cruel and xenophobic policies that have defined the Trump administration,” Harris said in a statement. “His white supremacist, anti-immigrant ideology has no place in our country, let alone the White House.”

Harris led a large group of senators in December in demanding the White House fire Miller in light of leaked emails that showed more evidence of his white nationalist beliefs. The resolution cited the emails’ content as one of the reasons to condemn Miller and call for his removal.

In November, the Southern Poverty Law Center published a series of bombshell reports analyzing 900 emails Miller sent to far-right website Breitbart from 2015 to 2016, when he was working for then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). The emails revealed Miller actively influencing Breitbart stories related to race and immigration by encouraging writers and editors to look to explicitly white supremacist texts and websites.


You must be so proud.
