Would the Boston Bombing victims be used as props in the Immigration Debate?
The recent and failed Senate gun control ramrod bill featured the unfortunate use of the Sandy Hook victim's families as props to provide a leftist notion of moral authority to the impetus to pass the ill-conceived legislation as Boston reeled this week from the nation's largest terror shock since September, 2001.
Reports are surfacing that the older Tsarnaev brother could have been deported after a 2009 arrest and conviction for domestic violence:
One of the Chechen terrorists who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings could have been deported years ago after a criminal conviction and the other was granted American citizenship on the 11th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old killed in a wild shootout with police, was a legal U.S. resident who nevertheless could have been removed from the country after a 2009 domestic violence conviction, according to a Judicial Watch source. That means the Obama administration missed an opportunity to deport Tsarnaev but evidently didn't feel he represented a big enough threat.
Adding insult to injury, the other bomber, little brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was rewarded with American Citizenship on September 11, 2012 in Boston, according to JW's source.
With the gun control debate and Sandy Hook aftermath as a model, will the Boston Bombing victims and survivor's families be given a similar opportunity to publicly weigh in with similar moral authority as victims of the nation's failed immigration system and its refusal to "profile" or better monitor individuals prone to "radicalization?"
Or will they receive the same perch beside the bully pulpit to tell America and the West that importing radical Islam or its starter kits is not part and parcel of the mythical "melting pot" paradigm that existed before 9/11?
The link between lax immigration enforcement and terrorism is far greater than the false association and victim exploitation that the Democrat strategists conjured up in the gun control debate as Boston "sheltered-in."
