"Why weren't the immigration laws enforced to prevent this tragic murder?"A few paragraphs above that is the answer:
ICE doesn't have the resources to detain and begin deportation proceedings against every illegal immigrant who is arrested, agency spokesman Carl Rusnok said. ICE prioritizes by "targeting criminal aliens who pose the greatest threat to public safety."So let's double the budget for ICE.
Oh, that's right...can't do that. Too much spending!
