JUDICIAL WATCH — An illegal immigrant who stabbed a young Connecticut woman to death after completing a 15-year sentence for murder couldn’t be deported by the U.S. government because his homeland, which receives billions in aid from Uncle Sam, wouldn’t take him back—three times! So federal authorities released the violent criminal, a Haitian national, and didn’t even bother tracking his whereabouts allowing him to commit yet another heinous crime.
Now, a year after an innocent woman was viciously butchered to death in her own apartment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is getting a bit of a spanking from its watchdog for failing to do its job. It’s a sad old story, but this one is extra special because the DHS agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), responsible for deporting the murderous thug (Jean Jacques) claims Haiti simply refused to take him—on three different occasions. In fact, Jacques was listed as a passenger on three flights to Haiti but the Haitian government refused to repatriate him. U.S. authorities followed the orders of a famously corrupt, third-world country that gets billions in “humanitarian” aid from American taxpayers and Jacques was released to kill again.
As unbelievable as this may sound, it’s the somber reality of an agency created after 9/11 to keep the nation safe. A few years after coming to the U.S. in the early 1990s Jacques went on a crime spree and was convicted of attempted murder and illegally possessing a gun. He was sentenced to 20 years but got out after serving 15 and was jailed again for violating the terms of his parole before getting released for good in January of 2015. Six months later he stabbed 25-year-old Casey Chadwick to death in Norwich, a city of about 40,000 residents. Connecticut has long protected illegal immigrants with sanctuary policies and even offers them special drivers’ licenses, but the gruesome crime ignited fury and the state’s congressional delegation—all Democrats and avid defenders of sanctuary measures—demanded that the DHS Inspector General conduct an investigation.
