Feds Failed 3 Times To Deport Illegal With Criminal Record Who …

The Department of Homeland Security s (DHS) Inspector General has reluctantly agreed to investigate how the agency failed at least three times to deport an illegal immigrant with an extensive criminal record, allowing him to murder a young woman in Connecticut. Casey Chadwick, 25 brutally murdered by Jean Jacques, 41, a Haitian national Judicial Watch reported 1 that lawmakers finally pressed the IG to add the case to its list of ongoing projects. But the nonpartisan watchdog warned the list is so long interested parties shouldn t hold their breath for answers.

WND reported 2 that the case involves the stabbing death of Casey Chadwick, 25. Jean Jacques, 41, a Haitian national, was arrested shortly after the 2015 summer discovery of Chadwick s body inside a closet in her apartment. She died of sharp forced injuries to the head and neck and she also suffered from vascular injuries, Norwich police said 3 .

After his arrest, local media and interested politicians learned Immigration and Customs Enforcement failed to deport Jacques at least three times, going back to 2002. As if this weren t atrocious enough, Jacques spent 17 years in prison for attempted murder before authorities released him, instead of deporting him, in January of 2015, Judicial Watch reported, citing Norwich Bulletin reports 4 . Six months after his release, Jacques was arrested for her murder and jailed on a $1 million bond.

But Connecticut s two U.S. senators and one congressman, all Democrats, demanded to know why the federal authorities hadn t deported him in the first place. As Judicial Watch noted, this is not an isolated case.

In the last few years, illegal immigrants with lengthy criminal histories have been allowed to remain in the U.S. despite being repeat offenders. For instance, back in 2008, JW launched a California public records request with the San Francisco Sheriff s Department to obtain the arrest and booking information on Edwin Ramos, an illegal alien from El-Salvador who murdered three innocent American citizens.

Ramos was a member of a renowned violent street gang and had been convicted of two felonies as a juvenile yet he was allowed to remain in the country. Judicial Watch also noted the Democratic lawmakers are only demanding answers because Chadwick s murder occured in their backyard, and that both senators had previously blocked a measure that would have blocked grants to police departments located in sanctuary cities and states. The watchdog s conclusion?

Perhaps if states like Connecticut didn t offer illegal immigrants sanctuary, this case and many others like it nationwide wouldn t exist, Judicial Watch said.

SEARCH GOES AWRY Report: Plane hit with laser while looking for …

A plane aiding in the search for 12 missing Marines, whose helicopters crashed off the Hawaiian island of Oahu, was reportedly hit with a laser Saturday forcing it to alter its course. A Coast Guard spokeswoman told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that if crew members had been directly exposed to the green laser, the C-130 Hercules would ve had to make an emergency landing and the crew would ve been examined. Laser exposure could cause temporary blindness.

Pointing a laser an aircraft is a federal crime. Officials released the names of the 12 missing Marines late Saturday whose choppers crashed on Thursday. The names of the Marines are: Maj.

Shawn M. Campbell, 41, College Station, Texas. Capt.

Brian T. Kennedy, 31, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Capt.

Kevin T. Roche, 30, St. Louis, Missouri.

Capt. Steven R. Torbert, 29, Florence, Alabama.

Sgt. Dillon J. Semolina, 24,Chaska, Minnesota.

Sgt. Adam C. Schoeller, 25, Gardners, Pennsylvania.

Sgt. Jeffrey A. Sempler, 22, Woodruff, South Carolina.

Sgt. William J. Turner, 25, Florala, Alabama.

Cpl. Matthew R. Drown, 23, Spring, Texas.

Cpl. Thomas J. Jardas, 22, Fort Myers, Florida.

Cpl. Christopher J. Orlando, 23, Hingham, Massachusetts.

Lance Cpl. Ty L. Hart, 21, Aumsville, Oregon.

The family of Cpl. Christopher Orlando of Hingham, Massachusetts, said it was grateful for people s prayers. We continue to monitor the ongoing search effort in Hawaii and are thankful for the hard work of the many federal and local heroes undertaking this search and rescue mission, the family said in a statement released by the Massachusetts State Police.

Ty Hart, a 21-year-old from Oregon, was in one of the helicopters, the Oregonian reported Friday night. The newspaper said Hart lives on base in Hawaii with his wife. Hart s former high school football coach and teacher, Alan Kirby, described Hart as a positive kid who always had a smile on his face and called him a quick learner on the gridiron.

The family of Capt. Kevin Roche believes he was one of the Marines aboard the helicopters. We believe the Marines and Coast Guard are doing everything they can to bring Kevin and his fellow Marines home safely, and we are grateful to everyone involved in the rescue, said a family statement distributed by brother-in-law Anthony Kuenzel in St.

Louis. A Coast Guard official was notified of the crash by a civilian who saw the aircraft flying then disappear into a fireball. Someone else reported seeing a flare in the sky, Coast Guard spokesman Lt.

Scott Carr said. It s unclear if the fireball and the flare were related. The Marines were alerted when the CH-53E helicopters carrying six crew members each failed to return to their base at Kaneohe Bay following a nighttime training mission.

Hours later, a Coast Guard helicopter and C-130 airplane spotted debris 2 1/2 miles off of Oahu. A Navy P-3 airplane was scouring the ocean, along with helicopters from the Coast Guard, Army, Navy and Honolulu police and fire departments. Two Navy warships and two Coast Guard cutters were on the scene.

Honolulu lifeguards on personal watercraft were also looking. The Coast Guard was keeping people out of a wide zone that spanned about 30 miles of shoreline, citing danger from debris. The zone extended from the shore to 8 miles off the coast.

Saturday s search efforts were severely hampered by high waves that topped 30 feet high. National Weather Service meteorologist Derek Wroe said Saturday that the surf peaked Friday afternoon and was slowly declining. A storm about 1,500 miles to the north and northwest of Oahu was sending large swells to the islands, he said.
