A man accused of attacking his wife with a chainsaw has been deported from the US 11 times since 2005
Depending on their criminal history, any person who illegally reenters the United States, after having been previously removed, could be charged with a felony offence that carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison.
Alvarez will be transported back to the Whittier City Jail where he will be booked on charges of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run and grand theft auto.
People like this are just one reason we need to actually enforce our immigration laws instead of simply letting people flood right back in once we deport them. A man named Alejandro Alvarez Villegas who had previously been deported 11 times has managed to sneak in yet again, this time viciously attacking his wife with a chainsaw in front of their 3 children. Her condition is presently unknown. Alejandro was eventually caught and arrested for attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run and grand theft auto.
If you'll notice, illegally re-entering (sneaking into) the US after being deported is a potential felony charge with up to 20 years imprisonment. This man has clearly shown a blatant disregard for the laws of the US by violating that at least 10 times. The fact that he was actually free until his chainsaw attack is an indication of the absolutely sad state of our immigration enforcement.
