MAGA Hat Trick Puts Illegal Alien on ICE
President Donald Trump maintains that Mexico “is not sending their best” to America. A recent incident in Massachusetts suggests that Brazil isn’t sending their brightest.
Rosiane Santos, a 41-year-old Brazilian national, was arrested at a Mexican restaurant and charged with assault and disorderly conduct after repeatedly grabbing a “Make America Great Again” hat from a fellow diner.
As cops were removing Santos, she again lunged at the customer, hitting him. When they arrived at the police station, Santos refused to get out of the police car and yelled, “What are you going to do if I don’t?”
Having called attention to herself, Santos was subsequently detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which had determined she was in the U.S. illegally.
Santos’s attorney, Katarina Kozakova, said her client has a pending green card application and is married to a U.S. citizen.
Now, instead of getting her green card from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Santos has been ordered to appear before an immigration judge for removal proceedings.
It’s not necessarily a slam dunk. ICE released Santos from custody and with police
U.S. immigration courts have the highest failure-to-appear rates of any courts in the country. Over the last 20 years, 37 percent of all aliens free pending trial failed to appear for their hearings, according to data compiled by Mark Metcalf, a former immigration court judge.
“Nearly 46,000 people each year disappeared,” Metcalf said. Any bets on Ms. Santos?
Still battling and unbowed, the Brazilian justified her MAGA-fueled outburst: “I had a little bit to drink. Maybe that’s the reason that I couldn’t walk away, but being discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for my life.”
“I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”
