A DREAMER That Killed Two Children, Remains In Country
In 2013, Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, a teenager at the time, was convicted of felony hit and run in the October crash that killed two young stepsisters in Forest Grove. Garcia-Cisneros struck Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, and Abigail Robinson, 11, when she drove through a leaf pile, unaware the two girls were playing in it.
An immigration case was opened at the time but was dropped as Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Andrew S. Munoz as said that Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros “was released from ICE custody Aug. 14 after an immigration judge dismissed her case.”
Brought to the U.S. from Mexico as a young child, Garcia-Cisneros had temporary permission to be in the country through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Since her January sentencing, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has held her in federal custody at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Wash until May 0f 2017 when A judge sentenced her to three years of probation and 250 hours of community service, and as an undocumented immigrant, she risked deportation.
She avoided prison time in large part because she was a teenager and because the victim’s parents urged the trial judge to sentence her to probation.
The appeals court also reversed their decision on Garcia-Cisneros’s conviction based on two additional main points:
- Her knowledge that the incident occurred while she was still at / near the scene
- Whether the law requires a driver to return to a scene of an injury crash once they learn of it
This is the problem with our justice system that is run by activist judges everywhere. Even if the parents asked for probation only, shouldn’t she still be at the very least deported? This is relevant to the Kate Steinle case where an illegal immigrant shot a woman to death and was acquitted of all charges.
If a white male were for instance to shoot someone dead in the streets unintentionally shoot someone or run someone over with their vehicle, it is guaranteed that at the very least some version of manslaughter would be charged.
