Immigration authorities released man who then murdered three people in Florida

posted at 6:45 pm on January 23, 2012 by Tina Korbe

BuzzFeed asks whether Kesler Dufrene might not become Barack Obama’s Willie Horton. Nothing about Dufrene’s story reflects well on U.S. officials:

When burglar Kesler Dufrene became a twice-convicted felon in 2006, a Bradenton judge shipped him to prison for five years. And because of his convictions, an immigration judge ordered Dufrene deported to his native Haiti.

That never happened.

Instead, when Dufrene’s state prison term was up, Miami immigration authorities in October 2010 released him from custody. Two months later, North Miami police say, he slaughtered three people, including a 15-year-old girl …

DNA on a rifle found inside the house and cellphone tracking technology later linked Dufrene to the Jan. 2, 2011, slayings.

But North Miami detectives never got to interrogate him. Just 18 days after the murders, Dufrene shot and killed himself when he was cornered by Manatee County sheriff’s deputies in Bradenton after an unrelated break-in and shooting there. …

The failure to deport Dufrene infuriates the victims’ family members. “This guy shouldn’t have been in America,” said Audrey Hansack, 37, who moved back to her native Nicaragua after the murder of her daughter Ashley Chow. “I’m so upset with the whole situation. Because of immigration, my daughter is not alive.”

So, what was the deal? Why was Dufrene never deported? Because of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the Obama administration issued a temporary moratorium on all deportations to the island nation. That decision had at least some validity: Haiti was in a state of emergency and the Haitian government had reduced capabilities to ensure the security of Haitian society as a whole.

The more troubling issue here is that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials couldn’t detain Dufrene until deportations to Haiti resumed. A pair of Supreme Court rulings in 2001 and 2005 specify that foreign nationals who cannot be deported may not be detained for more than six months. While those rulings make sense in the abstract, they make less sense when applied in a case like Dufrene’s. He was a twice-convicted felon whom ICE officials surely could not have been confident releasing. Surely some kind of an exception could have been invoked here, right? If not, this story is another bleak reminder that overregulation often leads to the underutilization of personal judgment and common sense.

At any rate, the chilling quote from Ms. Hansack serves as a powerful reminder that immigration policy and its enforcement or lack thereof has real and painful consequences.

Why do you think the Dominican Republic won’t let haitians near their border. It’s really hell on earth.

Haiti was one of dozens of third world hellholes before the earthquake, it was one of dozens of dozens afterwards, and it will almost certainly continue to be so for generations, with or without natural disasters.

There is really no validity to deciding not to deport illegal immigrant felons back to Haiti unless you are prepared to grant permanent residency in America to absolutely anyone from the dozens of such counties that manages to make it ashore.

There is no end to such a policy. When does anyone think Haiti will no longer be a hellhole?

If Tina is going to volunteer lame excuses for Obama administration decisions like this, maybe she should consider writing somewhere else with a more naive or cynical view about the results of such an open borders philosophy.

My comment from another thread on now archived headlines.

(Mushy-headed thinking by GOP candidates in the past (Bush, McCain. et al) has helped fuel the current deplorable situation. Let’s hope the next president thinks with his HEAD, not his heart!):

Kudos to Newt for the Contract with America, overturning 40 years of Dem. House rule, balanced budget, etc., etc. All super achievements.

But why is he proposing to GIVE AWAY OUR COUNTRY TO FOREIGN INVADERS? Hardly a TEA party platform plank.

Point 6 of his otherwise great immigration plan
needlessly rewards criminals (who knowingly broke our laws by illegally entering our country) with their ill-gotten goods (residency).

In what other area of human activity does this otherwise smart man think that giving the ill-gotten goods to the criminal will cut down on the crime rate? Duh. Point 6 is just another giant magnet for future illegals, just like Perry’s in-state tuition, Mitt’s former advocacy of McCain-Kennedy Comprehensive Amnesty, ad nauseum.

A pox on ANY candidate who devalues American citizenship so much that he advocates rewarding foreign invaders with residency, or worse, a pathway to citizenship.

Why can’t ALL GOP candidates just calmly and rationally advocate for the policy of “attrition through enforcement” — the most humane, logical, lawful, economical, effective and POLITICALLY POPULAR solution? Duh.

And when the states actually implement this policy, listen to an illegal alien explain why it is so effective.

Because of immigration, my daughter is not alive.”

while I can appreciate the disgust, this is where government takes it in the shorts every time. Ultimately, its this man’s own decisions that took her life. Although it is comforting and convenient to blame the government for things going wrong (and generally, that is a valid argument), the government is not the root of all evil. That root is in this man’s heart and there is nothing the government is going to do about that (except keep him detained). Of all the people we detain, there are guys like this that fall through the cracks unfortunately. A sad case all around.

HatfieldMcCoy on January 23, 2012 at 9:54 PM

What’s really annoying outrageous is that Obama’s Immigration Department released Dufrene in October 2010 due to Obama placing a moratorium on deportations to Haiti and because the end of it in January 2011 was not foreseeable.

Seriously, Obama lifted the moratorium around less than three months after they released Dufrene but by some rationalization of these clowns running the executive branch that was not “foreseeable”.

Considering how much time it takes for Obama to mull over any freakin’ decision he has to make, The White House had to already be in the process of deciding to lift the moratorium at the time Dufrene was released, and if ICE had just talked to Obama they would have foreseen the end of the moratorium.

But all that kind of coordination would require a President who was serious about his responsibilities as the Manager-in-Chief of the Executive Branch of government.

the same foot loose and fancy free mentality applies to american citizen recidivist felons including the most heinous of murderers. our judicial system -our laws- have been decimated by years of pro-defendant, left wing activist legal shilling. our laws have been hallowed out from the inside stripping the public, the victims and the state of the means necessary to maintain order and safety for all. victims are disappeared from the system and their families mean naught. the only important poor benighted baby seal whose mistreatment screams for justice is the criminal. the victims are nothing and the state an out of control police state. that is the narrative that freed this scum bag and thousands just like him.

our country has been ceded to the worst among us at the behest of the left- the legacy of the criminal and murderous marxists- all of them involved in ‘prison activism’- of the 60′s. the same collection of hateful killers who propped up king obambi.” free as a bird, guilty as sin.” the same killers pardoned in droves by the likes of clinton. our DOJ is in the hands of these people yet the republicants in congress made no attempt to block racist thugs like holder. meekly they now peep peep about him resigning and they don’t dare blame obama for the injustices of his social justice department.

people molder in ICE jails- even those who have committed no crimes besides the obvious one of being here illegally. however,once some illegal commits a serious crime he automatically becomes a victim who needs to be shielded from the racist oppressive “justice” of the man. he was let out because his criminally conferred more rights on him than we the law abiding have. we certainly do not deserve to be protected from him.criminal- being limited to those who commit crimes against persons no matter how violent- is a protected class except of course white white collar criminals who deserve the death penalty.

the rule of law is all we have standing between us and fascism or chaos-and we’ve allowed it to be destroyed. i shudder to think who dear leader will pardon on his way out of office. how will we fix this mess when the opposition isn’t strong enough to stand against it ?

Looks like another of the Sotero clan has been captured.

Sheesh! He came here illegally. If some people break one law and nobody cares, how do they know when to quit?

Give the guy a break!

The failure to deport Dufrene infuriates the victims’ family members. “This guy shouldn’t have been in America,” said Audrey Hansack, 37, who moved back to her native Nicaragua after the murder of her daughter Ashley Chow.

IMHO, That alone should make everyone involved in this at the legislative level, hang their head in shame….In Shame, dam*it….

There is NO way you can sit there and tell me the system works…It does not work, if a immigrant from a country like NICARAGUA feels safer moving BACK there than stay here.

Let me rephrase: She’s willing to LEAVE a 1st World (red ink and all) country to RETURN to one that, to be fair, is not the first place Joe Sixpack thinks of traveling to on his yearly week vacation.

This is insane. You want to give me a reason why we aren’t building more holding tanks for these people?

The sad thing is I could throw a baseball from my back yard and hit a house that has illegals in it both back then and today. Its such a joke.

Looks like a future cabinet member or a union president.

you racists obviously don’t understand that he had a difficult upbringing and was subject to a lot of abuse and discrimination by white people. You should accept responsibility for this and send the money for his defense team.

I wonder if he’ll vote democrat in the 2012 election?

angrymike on January 23, 2012 at 7:29 PM

Showing his photo is racist or something.
