Killer of three in Oregon was deported six times

News that 170,000 criminal illegal aliens have avoided deportation has consequences beyond mere statistics.  An illegal alien in Oregon, deported six times since 2003, has been charged with three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in a quadruple-shooting at a rural blueberry farm.

Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez, 29, has no significant prior criminal convictions, but ICE asked Oregon authorities to turn him over to them if he's released from custody in the current case, the agency said in a statement to The Associated Press on Friday.

Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez, 29, has no significant prior criminal convictions, but ICE asked Oregon authorities to turn him over to them if he's released from custody in the current case, the agency said in a statement to The Associated Press on Friday.

Oseguera-Gonzalez pleaded not guilty to three counts of aggravated murder and one count of attempted murder Tuesday in Marion County Superior Court.

His attorney, Deborah Burdzik, did not immediately return a call seeking comment about his immigration status.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted about the case Friday, saying the suspect "should have never been here."

Two men who lived at the blueberry farm in the Willamette Valley town of Woodburn, in northwest Oregon, died at the scene of Monday's shooting. The third victim, the girlfriend of another resident who was not home at the time, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A third man was seriously wounded but survived and is able to speak with investigators.

The Oregon State Police arrested Oseguera-Gonzalez a few hours later on Interstate 84 in the Columbia River Gorge, about 100 miles northeast of Woodburn.

He acknowledged to authorities in an interview that he shot four people, according to a probable cause statement.

The victims were identified as Ruben Rigoberto-Reyes, 60; Edmundo Amaro-Bajonero, 26; and Katie Gildersleeve, 30, of Logsden.

Motive is important to the criminal case but largely irrelevant when looking at the big picture.  Trump is right: this man should never have been here.  That he has been deported and snuck his way back in the U.S., or he has avoided deportation altogether, is a clear sign of a failed immigration system. 

It will be interesting to see this murderer's history.  Was he released previously by a sanctuary city?  Was he ever in the custody of ICE?  For how long?  These are questions that need answers if we're ever going to get ahead of the battle to reduce the number of illegals who live in America.
