Don't we already have enough violent killers in America without getting MORE from other countries?

A 37-year-old illegal immigrant from Nicaragua has been
arrested for the murder of an Elizabeth man who was found lying
in the street outside a Linden tavern last month.
Carlos Ray Gutierrez, 37, of Westfield Avenue, Elizabeth was
arrested in the Bronx and brought back to New Jersey over the
weekend to face murder charges with the death of a 33-year-old
Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow and Linden
Police Chief John Miliano said Gutierrez was arrested while
hiding in an apartment on 168th St., in the Bronx. He was
arrested by members of the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force
along with Linden detective David Dehler and detective Sue
Deegan of the Prosecutor's Office Homicide Unit.
"This was an arrest of a dangerous wanted suspect without
incident at dawn in New York City and it came off without a hitch,'' said Romankow, who said the team of detectives identified Gutierrez and then began working with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers once they learned his identity.
Jose Riascos, 33, of Elizabeth was found lying in the middle of the street of the 800 block of East Elizabeth Avenue around 2:10 a.m. Feb. 22 by Linden police officers Paul Zack and Jayson McPhail.
Riascos was leaving the Q Vos bar shortly after 2 a.m. and walking with a friend to a vehicle when he became involved in a verbal dispute with a small group of people. He was stabbed in the upper torso, before the group fled.
Riascos, formerly of Morristown, was taken by emergency
medical workers to Trinitas Hospital in Elizabeth where he was
pronounced dead at 2:40 a.m.
Gutierrez has been charged with first degree murder, possession of a knife and possession of a knife for an unlawful purpose, Miliano said. He added Gutierrez was brought to Newark where he was processed as an illegal immigrant, and than transported to Linden Police Headquarters.
Romankow said Gutierrez was later transferred to the Union
County Jail in Elizabeth where he is being held on $1 million bail set by Superior Court Judge Joseph Perfilio, sitting in Elizabeth.
He also faces charges for failure to appear on a federal deportation warrant, according to Linden Capt Michael Boyle.
so he will get the same rights as an american citizen, and then be sent to american jail, and i'm willing to bet he will be released back into AMERICA...... wtf
He already was released INSIDE America to wait for his deportation ONCE(at least once)
I'm glad that we get to pay for his defense and stay in prison.
