As If Biden’s Border Crisis Weren’t Bad Enough, His Admin Is Booting Immigration Judges Who Enforce The Law BY: BRIAN PFAIL for The Federalist

A member of MS-13 received a lighter sentence after committing murder due to the overburdened judicial system.

After the sentencing of yet another MS-13 gang member on Long Island, residents question if the Biden administration will ever begin to effectively enforce border security.

The MS-13 gang member was sentenced to 25 years for his role in the 2016 murder of a 15-year-old boy. Eduardo Portillo, the 25-year-old now sentenced, was also previously involved in narcotics trafficking for the MS-13.

Before a Central Islip judge, Portillo apologized to the victim’s family, saying, “I understand I have failed and regret with all my heart the horrible things I did. But I can still change, and I can still become a good person.” And though Gary R. Brown, the U.S. district judge overseeing the case, said he considered a stiffer penalty, Brown settled on 300 months or 25 years because he received numerous letters from Portillo’s family suggesting he could change. The judge felt Portillo should have a second chance. The victim, Javier Castillo, was not afforded the same opportunity.

Portillo allegedly came from an impoverished family in El Salvador and had borrowed money to help him gain access to the United States. As Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney said, this is typical of how the cartels operate at the border.

“Gangs have a better ability to use coyotes, and they have a greater familiarity with the system,” Tierney said. “It’s easier for gang members to come up.”

“They engage in importing drugs into the United States as well as victims of human trafficking,” he added.

The Daily Caller reported that Attorney General Merrick Garland has been dismissing Trump-appointed immigration judges. Republican congressmen have taken the offensive demanding answers.
