Preventable Murder

Readers know that I have significant problems with Donald Trump, starting with his basic manners.  He nonetheless rode to the nomination on what I shall call a stern view of immigration, sometimes bordering on xenophobia.  

That said, I am compelled to give credit where credit is due.  Trump is on the money in excoriating the present Administration's lack of seriousness in its "enforcement" of immigration law.  As usual, it's not the people who go to Georgetown parties and have mahogany paneled offices at DOJ who pay the price, as witness this story in today's Washington Post:  "Immigration officials:  Suspect in Maryland gang murder had been deported twice."

A 28-year-old gang member charged in the brutal stabbing death of a Maryland teenager had been deported twice to El Salvador in the past two years, according to U.S. immigration officials.

Oscar Delgado-Perez is expected to make his first appearance in Montgomery County court on Friday afternoon in a killing detectives suspect was over gang bragging rights.

Detectives say that on June 16, Delgado-Perez and at least two other members of the MS-13 gang stabbed Cristian Villagran-Morales, 18, more than 40 times in a park in Gaithersburg. Delgado-Perez "directed" the attack, detectives wrote in an affidavit filed in court.

The Left is fond of saying that the problem behind the huge spike in violent crime this year and last is lack of trust in law enforcement.  Like so much else the Left says, this is hogwash.  The problem is lack of fear by the criminally-inclined toward law enforcement  --  a lack that is, under our present leadership, appalling, if justified.
