Sent back to their deaths: At least
138 Salvadorans deported from the US
to their homeland were killed within a
year of their return, some within days

At least 138 people deported to El Salvador from the US in recent years were subsequently killed, Human Rights Watch says in a new report that comes as the Trump administration makes it harder for Central Americans to seek refuge here. A majority of the deaths documented by Human Rights Watch in the report being released Wednesday occurred less than a year after the deportees returned to El Salvador, and some within days.(Snip) The violence underscores the risk faced by people forced to return by US law that mandates deportation of non-citizens convicted of a range of crimes

Comments:

Human Rights Watch says we need to keep Salvadoran criminals in the USA because it's safer here. American Citizen Rights Watch would say, send them all back and let them elect leaders who will clean up their country.

Perhaps they returned to their criminal lifestyle. Have you considered that? Probably not. Besides, not our concern. We don't need the dregs of society coming here, and bringing their gutter culture with them.

I'm just wondering how many U.S. citzens might have died at the hands of these illegal immigrants if they had not been deported? Answer me that.

Human Rights Watch needs to tell El Salvador’s to clean up it’s own mess. Then maybe there will be no need for anyone to try to escape. My daughter went on a humanitarian mission to El Salvador last year with a group of dentists. The hotel they stayed in was surrounded by a wall topped with coiled razor wire. Their “refugees” are not our problem.

So I assume that Human Rights wants us to take in everyone from El Salvador. That's only 6,500,000 people. Of course, that would also include the murderers that were doing all the killing. Why not let in all of Central America...Guatemala with their 17,000,000, Honduras:6,500,000 and Nicaragua: 6,000,000. That's only 36,000,000 poorly educated people to go on welfare here. We also shouldn't leave out our good neighbor Mexico at 132,000,000. That's a mere two hundred million more to add to our 340,000,000 population. We must be compassionate to those seeking a better life and what could possibly go wrong?

If things were so horrible in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are right next door. Belize is a heck of a lot closer than the USA, and they had to go through Mexico to get to the USA. But, no, all the "free stuff" is so much better in the USA. And you have the Demon-Rats working for you if you make it over the border. So its worth a shot...

Returned to El Salvador... isn't El Salvador the homeland of MS13? We do know that thousands upon thousands of criminal aliens have arrived here. Their first or primary victims are within the alien community, but their prey is also among the LEGAL immigrant community. These criminal black-hearted people become emboldened by feckless politicians who coddle them by their policies. Also, they create networks of avenues for deadly drugs to flood the country, all throughout our country.

The biggest flop of the award show season? The award show itself. The Oscars made history for the smallest audience the award show has ever received after a night of predictable wins and polarizing acceptance speeches. About 23.6 million people watched the 92nd installment of the show, which showered Bong Joon Ho with awards including Best Director and Best Picture for his widely acclaimed social horror film “Parasite.” And while it was the most-watched show of the awards season, even the promise of a hostless show couldn’t hoist up Hollywood’s big night amid repeat wins by actors who already took home Golden Globes, SAGs and BAFTAs.

Jackson, Miss.—The president of Jackson State University resigned Monday after he was arrested in a prostitution sting in central Mississippi. William Bynum Jr., 57, was among more than a dozen people arrested during the weekend, according to a Clinton Police Department news release. A separate news release from the Mississippi university system on Monday said Bynum submitted his resignation, and it took effect immediately. Bynum is charged with procuring services of a prostitute, false statement of identity and simple possession of marijuana. He has been president of Jackson State since 2017 after serving four years as president of Mississippi Valley State University.

Iran was sabotaged with an unprecedented cyber attack on the eve of its failed attempt to launch a satellite into orbit, the regime has claimed. Last night, a rocket launch from Imam Khomeini Spaceport was scuppered due to low speeds which stopped it breaking into orbit. It was a humiliating blow to Tehran, which the United States believes is developing rocket technology to advance nuclear capabilities. But hours before the failure, Iran's deputy information minister Hamid Fatah had revealed the country's communications network had been hit with 'the most widespread attack in Iranian history'.(Snip) Hosseini still sought to portray the failure as a 'remarkable' achievement for its space program.

Chechen blogger Imran Aliev, 44, was found late last month in a hotel bloodbath in Lille that reflected “extreme savagery,” sources told Agence France-Presse. His throat had also been slit, Business Insider said. Aliev had political refugee status and was living in Belgium under police protection “because of threats out of Russia and Chechnya over his opposition blogging,” a senior French police official told the outlet.

But those seats would only become warmer and warmer as the night went on, because instead we heard different people called up: Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt and, most improbably, “1917.”

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.

The president’s fiscal 2021 budget will not include funding for the licensing of Nevada’s Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste repository, a senior administration official confirmed to CQ Roll Call on Thursday. President Donald Trump tweeted earlier what appeared to be a rejection of the long-debated plans for the federal site about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, an abrupt reversal of his administration’s policy. “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions — my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches — I’m confident we can get it done!” the president tweeted Thursday evening.

I see that various pundits are competing to write the political epitaph for Joe ‘son-of-a-bitch‘ Biden. That’s entirely understandable.

And then there was the desolation wrought by the Democrats’ impeachment entertainment. From the start, it was clear that the chief casualty of that amateur theatrics was going to be Joe Biden and his sniff, sniff, sniffing son Hunter. Everyone who is not Bill Kristol understood that the bullet of that purely partisan hit job would miss President Trump.
