NOW can we get serious...?!

This freak (that oddly resembles a Todd McFarlane action figure, but is an actual person) is Gregory Despres, and on 5/25 he arrived at "U.S.-Canadian border crossing at Calais, Maine, carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with what appeared to be blood. U.S. customs agents confiscated the weapons and fingerprinted Despres.

Then they let him into the United States." (source)

Ok, you're shocked right, but wait...it gets worse.

"The following day, a gruesome scene was discovered in Despres' hometown of Minto, New Brunswick: The decapitated body of a 74-year-old country musician named Frederick Fulton was found on Fulton's kitchen floor. The man's head was in a pillow case under a kitchen table. His common-law wife was discovered stabbed to death in a bedroom.

Despres, 22, immediately became a suspect because of a history of violence between him and his neighbors, and he was arrested April 27 after police in Massachusetts saw him wandering down a highway in a sweat shirt with red and brown stains. He is now in jail in Massachusetts on murder charges, awaiting an extradition hearing next month.

At a time when the United States is tightening its borders, how could a man toting what appeared to be a bloody chain saw be allowed into the country?" (source)

The answer to this question? "Because nobody asked us to detain him"... for real?

Immigration vigilance is not about keeping out those who happen to have a darker skin tone, but about a Government's FIRST duty --which is the protection of its citizens!
