Avoid Deportation At All Costs

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations  deport Mexican homicide suspect Servando Calvillo-Armenta to Mexican law enforcement authorities Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona


A new California law goes into effect on January 1, 2016 that creates a double standard for United States citizens and non-citizens in this country (aka “illegal aliens” or “undocumented aliens” or “undocumented citizens”).

No matter what state we live in, we must watch these unconstitutional laws because they spread like a cancer.

Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1343 which was authored by Assemblyman Tony Thurmond, who is obviously a Democrat.

This bill imposed a new requirement on prosecutor’s statewide, requiring prosecutors to structure pleas bargains that seek to avoid deportation of non-citizens who plead guilty to crimes committed in California.

Section 1016(3)(b) is added to the Penal Code, to read: “The prosecution, in the interests of justice, and in furtherance of the findings and declarations of Section 1016.2, shall consider the avoidance of adverse immigration consequences in the plea negotiation process as one factor in an effort to reach a just resolution.

In other words, prosecutors are REQUIRED to try and avoid a plea agreement that would lead to deportation. Illegal aliens must be given a better deal than citizens get[…]

As expressed in by Marc Debbaudt is President of the Association of Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys:

“Since state law will now mandate that prosecutors must try to avoid a plea deal that leads to deportation, will defense attorneys or Judges be allowed to make the DDA state what consideration they gave to immigration consequences when making a plea deal? Are elected District Attorneys now going to have to put in writing office policies to implement this new law? Will citizens who commit the same crime as illegal aliens be able to claim they are being denied equal protection under the law, that their status as citizen makes them subject to harsher punishment than an illegal alien?
The reality is that any policy that turns a blind eye to illegal activities – including those that make it easier for people who have been convicted of crimes to remain in this country illegally -is a bona fide threat to public safety. “
