Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, 19 years-old, was convicted in January of this year in the killing of two young girls in a felony hit-and-run accident in Oregon. An illegal immigrant, Garcia-Cisneros had temporary permission to be in the country through the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — the result of a 2012 executive order.
Now, though she is both a convicted felon and in this country illegally, Garcia-Cisneros has not only avoided prison time, she’s reportedly been released from custody after her immigration case was dismissed. Apparently, she has even avoided deportation, thanks to a judge whose name is not being disclosed.
On Fox News, Laura Ingraham — filling in as host of the O’Reilly Factor — argued that this case is a shocking example of how illegal immigrants sometimes seem to enjoy more protection than legal U.S. citizens.
“This just shows us this whole DREAMer thing is a big farce,” Ingraham stated, adding that 68,000 criminals – including 167 murderers – have been released by ICE.
“We have enough criminals to deal with in the country. We don’t need an entire new class of criminals.”
Watch the interview with immigration attorney Francisco Hernandez (video above) and see if you agree with Ingraham’s position.
