Three other Democratic members of Congress from New York showed up at the rally in support of Ragbir: Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Rep. Joe Crowley and Rep. Yvette Clarke.
They say the government targeted the 53-year-old native of Trinidad because of his activism as the head of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York that helps immigrants fight deportation.
The government says he should be deported because of a 2001 wire fraud conviction involving a New Jersey mortgage company where Ragbir worked that was caught up in a fraud scheme.
Yeah, well, if Democrats weren’t interested in prosecuting these vicious mortgage fraudsters even back in 2009, why should they care about their crimes now?
What’s really interesting is that they can’t seem to find any immigrants in need of protection who are not rich criminal jerks. There must be a shortage of decent immigrants facing deportation (said I with great sarcasm, obviously.)
