Criminal Immigrant, Who Avoided Deportation, was Found Guilty for Killing Two South Boston Doctors
Plot twist, this guy wasn't here illegally. This convicted killer had a green card, and actually avoided deportation for an earlier crime (a bank heist) thanks to a sweet legal deal. Kind of those lawyers, as it gave Bampumim Teixeira, a 33-year-old migrant from West Africa, even more time to murder two doctors. Ah, America. Land of opportunity, second chances, leniency, and two dead doctors who didn't need to be. Lest you think Bampy here isn't guilty, here he is threatening to kill the ADA's wife, should Bampumim break out of the clink.
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched rejects who're eager to shed innocent blood on your shores." ~ The new Statue of Liberty inscription should we update it for Bampumim Teixeira and other violent immigrants who've gone before him.

From Boston 25 News:
The suspect had no known personal relationship with the victims but had once worked briefly as a concierge in their building, prosecutors said.
Teixeira told investigators he was having an affair with Bolanos. He said Field came home and became enraged, and killed Bolanos. Teixeira said he killed Field in self-defense.
An argument the jury didn't buy. No one is that stupid, especially after the little mid-court outburst about killing the ADA's wife. Only innocent men with intentions most noble threaten to kill a prosecutor's wife should things not go his way. I read all about it in Criminals: A History.
This double homicide wasn't the first crime Bampy had committed in the country gracious enough to give him a home. If you thought his first crime was minor, like say failing to pay a parking ticket, no. Misgendering a tranny? Heaven's preserve us, also no. Asking for a plastic straw to sip his diet Coke? No heathen would consider such a thing. No, our criminal immigrant is just a run of the mill, two-time bank robber. The same bank. Twice. Thanks to a little legal massaging, lawyers were able to negotiate his sentencing down from unarmed robbery low enough to avoid immigration penalties. Including having ICE providing a swift kick to his buttocks to send him all the way back to his country of origin where he'd be someone else's problem. Remember that, Boston, when your politicos tell you how much they care about you.
A message that doesn't just apply to Bostonians.
From the Boston Herald:
At a September plea hearing, a prosecutor and lawyer for Bampumim Teixeira presented a joint motion to reduce the charges against the Chelsea man from two counts of unarmed robbery, to larceny from a person, according to an audio recording of the hearing obtained by the Herald.
Teixeira, who received a green card in 2010, was arrested last July for robbing $212 from a teller at Citizens Bank on Summer Street. Under questioning in that case, he admitted to jacking $600 from the same bank in 2014.
Naturally, this robbery case has come back up to bite the legal teams in the tushies, now that the same man has killed two people. Sure, hindsight is 20/20, but when dealing with a criminal immigrant is as easy as dialing 1-800-ICEMENZ, why not pick up the phone? Why plea the crime down to keep this gem in the United States?
Jake Wark, spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, maintained Teixeira’s sentence was “no more lenient than what would have been imposed on any similarly situated person given the same facts, circumstances and lack of criminal record.”
But according to the same article, that's not true.
For one, federal law says immigrants can be deported if they commit an aggravated felony, which, among other ways, is defined as “a theft offense” for which the term of imprisonment imposed is at least one year. Teixeira’s 364-day sentence was a day short.
Almost as if the prosecution and defense knew making the sentence just shy of a year would protect their man from getting booted from the United States. As he deserved. As two now-dead doctors probably would've liked. If I'm guessing.
In addition, any green-card holder who is convicted of two or more crimes involving “moral turpitude” is deportable. But Teixeira’s 2014 robbery case was resolved as “guilty filed,” which allows a judge, with prosecutor and defense consent, to forgo imposing a sentence on a defendant.
Now sure, plenty of natural-born citizens engage in terrible crimes. I'm not suggesting this man being an immigrant makes him any less evil than any American who's engaged in evil crimes. Evil has no borders. But I am for sure suggesting had he been deported after committing a robbery (or two) the doctors he was just convicted of murdering would still be alive.
Isn't the leftist argument "if it saves one life, we should do it" often used to push gun control measures that fly in the face of Americans' rights to possess firearms. Well, how does this mantra not apply to measures already on the books as it relates to immigration? If you're a guest in America, and you commit a crime while you're a guest, you're no longer a welcome guest. These measures are in place to protect Americans who have a right to live in America. A right not extended to guests. So if it saves just one life, or in this case two, why not err on the side of saving American lives and deport the f*cker?
If only the legal teams had thought just as logically.
