Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe beauty queen who has been attacking Donald Trump on behalf of Hillary Clinton is actually proving why the country needs Trump’s immigration policies.
Machado was accused of being an accessory to murder and allegedly threatened to kill a judge in Venezuela, and yet, she was allowed into the country.
Ryan Girdusky of Red Alert Politics explains the irony in the case:
Machado was an accomplice in a murder, threatened to kill a judge, who sentenced her boyfriend to jail time, and had a relationship with a drug lord that resulted in the birth of her daughter.
When CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked about these allegations, Machado smiled and said “I’m not a saint girl.”
These series of events may deny Machado sainthood, but they didn’t deny her American citizenship. Proving Trump’s point about the need for greater background checks into prospective immigrants.
How does someone with a history of lawbreaking, threatening, and affiliations with drug lords deserve citizenship? Were there no law-abiding Venezuelans without a history, which included assisting in a murder, applying?
And if assisting in a murder is not enough to raise a red flag when applying for citizenship, then what is?
When can we deport this accused foreign criminal?
