Just one little fact missing from this headline: Mexican dad detained after leaving sanctuary church to meet with immigration officials

Illegal alien Oliver-Bruno (r): Previously convicted of committing fraud/AP photo

What the NY Post article below fails to mention is that the “generous” and “kind” illegal alien was a convicted illegal caught trying to enter US with forged documents. From CBS News (their headline was just as misleading, at least they provided facts in the article):

“ICE said Oliver-Bruno, who has lived in North Carolina for two decades, had no legal basis to be in the U.S. and had exhausted his “extensive” appeals. Oliver-Bruno pleaded guilty in 2014 to using false documents to try to re-enter the U.S. in Texas after a trip outside the country, according to court documents.”

But run with the sympathetic undocumented immigrant narrative. It still won’t change the fact that this illegal alien committed fraud and church members were harboring a fugitive.

From NY Post: A Mexican father who hid out in a North Carolina church for close to a year to avoid deportation was detained when he attended an appointment with immigration officials.

Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, had a scheduled meeting Friday at a Raleigh-area immigration office to provide fingerprints and discuss a petition to delay his deportation, so that he could stay in the country with his wife and son, who is a US citizen, local outlets reported.

About 20 minutes after he walked into the office, plainclothes US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested him.

The CityWell United Methodist Church’s pastor, Cleve May, and more than two dozen other people who’d accompanied Oliver-Bruno to the appointment surrounded the car taking Oliver-Bruno away and were also arrested, CNN and the Effingham Daily News newspaper reported.

The pastor said church member feared the immigration appointment had been a trap set up by ICE to nab Oliver-Bruno — who came to Greenville NC., from Veracruz, Mexico more than 20 years ago.

Congressmen David Price and G.K. Butterfield, both North Carolina Democrats, said they were “extremely alarmed” by the detention.

“It appears ICE has acted in concert with officials at USCIS, who instructed Mr. Oliver-Bruno to appear at local USCIS offices to discuss his deferred deportation,” the lawmakers said in a statement.

During his 11 months hiding out in living quarters built for him inside the church, Oliver-Bruno attended English classes, played guitar and read during services. “He helped construct his living quarters. He’s remarkable. He’s very generous and kind,” May told CNN.

Oliver-Bruno will remain in US detention for the duration of his case.

ICE deports Kazakhstani man convicted of concealing evidence for Boston Marathon bombers

Bye, bye you terrorist supporter!

Our country and the safety of our citizens matter. Good riddance!

From ICE press release dated 11/01/18:

DALLAS — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Kazakhstani man on Oct. 23 who was previously convicted for concealing criminal evidence for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Dias Muratovich Kadyrbayev, 24, a citizen of Kazakhstan, was convicted June 2, 2015, of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for removing and disposing of incriminatory items from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Tsarnaev was later convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three innocent bystanders, and subsequently two police officers.

Kadyrbayev’s crimes are considered aggravated felonies under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in federal prison at the Federal Correctional Institute in Big Spring, Texas (FCI Big Spring). Under federal law, aliens convicted of an aggravated felony are subject to removal and barred from returning to the United States.

Kadyrbayev departed the U.S. by commercial air on Oct. 23 and was released from ICE custody on Oct. 24 at the Almaty International Airport, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, without incident.

On Oct. 13, 2016, ERO Dallas lodged an immigration detainer with the Bureau of Prisons on Kadyrbayev and on Feb. 15, 2018, served him with a final administrative order of removal.

On Aug. 29, 2018, FCI Big Spring transferred custody of Kadyrbayev to ERO Dallas at the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas. Kadyrbayev remained in ICE custody until he was removed under ICE escort on Oct. 23.

Seattle, King County councils approve $1.3 million in legal aid for immigrants

Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher: Proposed using your tax payer dollars to defend illegal aliens

Suck it, taxpayers. Your hard-earned money is going to defend illegal aliens whether you approve or not.
From Seattle Times: The Seattle City Council on Monday voted to create a $1 million legal-defense fund for immigrants illegal aliens whom the federal government attempts to deport. And the Metropolitan King County Council approved $750,000 for immigrant and refugee programs, including $300,000 for the defense of people in immigration court.
The city and county will distribute the money to nonprofit organizations such as the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project to do the legal work.
City and county leaders have said local immigrant families need the help because of President Donald Trump’s plan to step up deportations.
Immigration-court cases are civil proceedings because living in the country illegally is a civil violation rather than a criminal one. Unlike in criminal cases, people who can’t afford to hire an attorney for immigration court aren’t guaranteed a public defender.
More than one-third of people with immigration-court cases in Seattle and more than 90 percent of those with cases in Tacoma lack legal representation, according to Councilmember M. Lorena González, who proposed the city fund with Councilmember Tim Burgess.
People convicted of crimes wouldn’t be excluded from getting support through the city’s fund in their unrelated immigration-court cases, according to Gonzalez and Burgess. Burgess said Monday that everyone should be afforded due process, including people facing potential deportation.
The city’s fund is separate from $250,000 Seattle is spending to help immigrants and refugees navigate life under Trump, with a focus on children in the city’s public schools.
