Sex offender listed on registry 9 times before action is taken

Source: rockymountainnews
Jaime Rodriguez made 22 trips to the Weld County Jail, including nine times to register as a sex offender, before he was deported to Mexico in 2004. His crimes ranged from traffic offenses to attempted sexual assault on a child.

Rodriguez, 32, entered the U.S. when he was 2 months old. He declined to comment, but his mother, Felipa Rodriguez, said she sneaked him across the Mexican border into El Paso, Texas. *snip*

His criminal history goes back to 1997 when he was arrested twice on domestic-violence charges, which can be grounds for deportation.

In 2000, when he was 26, Rodriguez pleaded guilty to the attempted sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl in La Salle, near Greeley. He was given a deferred sentence, but it was revoked in 2002 after he missed treatment classes and was involved in a third domestic-violence assault against his girlfriend.

In 2003, he was sentenced to a year in prison after another domestic-violence arrest involving his new wife. In prison, he finally came to the attention of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and he was deported in July 2004 to Mexico.

Rodriguez came back into the U.S. after only three months, his mother said. With his flawless English and a legitimate U.S. identification card, Rodriguez easily crossed the border between Juarez and El Paso. Two months later, he was arrested in La Salle on charges of misdemeanor child abuse involving his 18-month-old daughter.

After serving his 180-day jail term, he was turned over to ICE and charged in U.S. District Court with illegally re-entering the United States. He pleaded guilty and will be sentenced this month. He is expected to be deported again after serving his sentence.
What is the definition of insanity again?

Let's review, a bad man, not a citizen is caught by the police on several occasions. He is a pedophile, a wife beater and general all around scumbag. After being allowed to commit far too many crimes on American soil he is mercifully deported.

And comes right back into the country and picks up where he left off raping little American girls. Of what value is deportation exactly?

We've been trained to breathe a sigh of relief when the alien bad guy gets deported, but let's take another look at this story for clues as to the effectiveness of this policy...

So clearly the border was no obstacle to this POS.

He goes right back to his criminal ways. Now that he's been caught again what is the government's response?

This isn't working. We have two choices, and two choices only in this type of situation. We can lock them up for an extended period of time, or kill them. Deporting them is at best an inconvenience and I'll wager if some bright egghead did a study he'd find that the types and severity of crimes committed by those previously deported rise after they figure out how impotent our response is.

And frankly I really don't care anymore which we choose.
