He is the world’s most persistent illegal immigrant: One Mexican managed to get deported 44 times in 15 years — which means he also managed to sneak back across the border at least that many times.
The runner-up was ousted 40 times from 2001 to 2015. No. 3, 4 and 5 on the list were deported 35, 34 and 31 times, respectively, according to data provided to The Washington Times by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

While those are the most extreme cases, repeat-illegal immigrants were back in the news this week after police said a twice-deported man was driving drunk in Indiana on Sunday morning when he plowed into pro football player Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver, killing them both.
President Trump tweeted about the “disgraceful” death and called the killing “one of many such preventable tragedies.”
Someone please explain why our country is being allowed to run lawless for serious crimes like treason and THIS 44 deportation but normal citizens do one little thing and they throw the book at them?
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, one of the Republicans’ chief negotiators in the current immigration debate, said the fatal crash should be a wake-up call.

The list of heinous crimes attributed to repeat illegal immigrants is long.
The most notorious is the 2015 slaying of Kate Steinle by Jose Ines Garcia-Zarate, who had been deported five times before he found himself on the San Francisco waterfront with a gun in his hand.
That attack spawned Kate’s Law, a bill to toughen penalties on repeat illegal immigrants. Those who are caught returning after deportation would face two years in prison, and a third attempt would be punishable by 10 years. Repeat illegal immigrants with serious criminal convictions could face up to 25 years.
Kate’s Law cleared the House last year with support from two dozen Democrats, but the Senate has not taken action. Now, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is calling for Kate’s Law to be part of the immigration debate involving illegal immigrant Dreamers and border security.
