    Most of us have learned of the story of the tragic murder of Laken Riley, the University of Georgia nursing student who was murdered while jogging on campus. She was murdered, allegedly by Antonio Ibarra, an illegal immigrant from Venezuela, who had already been held by Athens, GA police for theft from a local Walmart. 

    Outrage has centered on the fact that GA police had Ibarra in custody but failed to turn him over to Immigration authorities (ICE).  Normal Americans consider the lenient treatment of illegal immigrants in our country an irresponsible menace to the public... or worse.

    As a result of this episode, House leadership put up H.R. 7511, the ‘Laken Riley Act’ for a vote. The bill calls for the detention by ICE of illegal immigrants implicated in local theft or burglary charges. 

    Bottom line is that Ibarra never should have been free to commit the heinous crime.  

    Laken Riley is just the latest in long list of victims of illegal immigrant crime over the past decade and more.  The Laken Riley Act seeks to finally prevent such horrific crimes going forward. And infuriatingly, Jim Himes voted AGAINST the Laken Riley Act! 

    You could give his Stamford office a piece of your mind over his continued mis-representation of our interests at 203-353-9400. Let him and his staff explain his latest vote against the citizenry he’s sworn to protect.
