In spite of the middle finger being flipped at us by them, the U.S. is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries because we're apparently stupid.
There is a law that allows us to hold visas from countries unwilling to take back their garbage but according to Cuellar, we are not enforcing that law.
What gives, President Trump?
"We're not enforcing it, which is amazing," Cuellar told Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure. "So now my intent is to go back to our committee on appropriations and affect their funding until they do that."
Cuellar, a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, told Attkisson said that the Supreme Court ruled that illegal immigrants who have been arrested for crimes, can only be held for a certain period of time and then must be released.
"That means you're releasing criminals into our streets because those countries refuse to take back those criminal aliens," he said. "That's wrong. And especially I think it's even worse that this is already on the books, and we're still issuing business tourist visas and student visas to countries that refuse to take back their criminal aliens. That's wrong, and we're hoping to change that."
Cuellar refused to be an Obama pool boy and was unafraid to break with the left on immigration issues. He was one of Obama's fiercest critics on illegal immigration and worked with Republican Sen. John Corny, (R-Tx) in 2014 to help pass a bill designed to speed up deportation of unaccompanied minors.
Failed Sen. Harry Reid was not a fan of Cuellar.
Cuellar said that diplomacy is a factor in government's refusal to enforce the law, because the State Department doesn't want to upset foreign partners. That's called 'kissing butt'.
For Cuellar, however, diplomacy isn't an excuse to put American lives in danger.
Cuellar admits that diplomacy can be important, but it's equally as important to prevent convicted criminals from returning to American communities. He plans to push for the US government to withhold visas from countries that refuse to take back their trash.
