Obama’s Willie Horton Moment?

Immigration authorities released man who went on to kill 3 in North Miami – Miami-Dade – MiamiHerald.com.

Due to a Moratorium on deportations to Haiti,  burglar Kesler Dufrene was not deported the last time  ICE took custody of him, although an immigration judge had ordered it.     He has since  been linked to Jan 2, 2011 slayings of a 15 year old girl and two other people by DNA and cellphone tracking.    Dufrene committed suicide  just before he was taken by Manatee county deputies after another break in and shooting.  Authorities and relatives of the victims wonder if others were involved in the triple slaying, and most agree that that Ashley Chow, Harlen Peralta, and Israel Rincon would still be alive had Dufrene been deported as scheduled.

If deportations are halted, ICE cannot hold  illegal immigrants in custody longer than six months, due to a pair of Supreme Court rulings on the issue.  Obama had halted deportations to Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake.  The result of that decision could be the topic of  anti-Obama ads, after the style of the Willie Horton ads that plagued  candidate Michael  Dukakis so long ago.
