If the Senator is shown to have been aware that Sanchez was an illegal immigrant and chose to hire him with that status, then he needs to resign.
There needs to be an investigation.
What we do know...
Sanchez is 18. He was charged as a Juvenile, in 2010, when he was 16 with a charge that qualified him as a "Sexual Offender"...which in New Jersey can
range from Rape etc. to Public Urination.
Those records are sealed since he was a Juvenile, but the State of NJ chose not to list him on the Public Registry of Sex Offenders...which could be
an over-sight or could reflect a charge that didn't warrant it.
When did Sanchez's Visa expire? Before or after he was hired by the Senator as an intern? I'd assume if he was illegal in 2010 when he was charged,
the cops would have notified ICE etc. So his Visa likely expired between 2010 and now..2012? Between the ages of 16 and 18?
The AP article said that ICE agents were informed in October that Sanchez might be an illegal alien...by who? The same folks that said that the ICE
agents were told by Homeland Security to not move on him until after the election? Despite Homeland Security saying that is Categorically false? If HS
told ICE to sit on thier hands...then provide the emails, memos etc. I smell OP Researchers...the folks political campaigns hire to do the dirty
digging. Doesn't excuse anything, but the story needs to be vetted, investigated.
What methods does the Senator have available to screen hires to his campaign? The Senator claims that all he is able to do is ask if they are legal
residents and that he did the same.
Is there any evidence that the Senator was aware of his status?
What was the Sexual Offense? It obviously did not qualify him for time at a Juvenile facility?
Not defending anyone....not Leaping to conclusions for partisan purposes either...facts are important.
