Many have claimed that illegal aliens, who already get a pass for illegally entering into the United States, are often benefactors of the nationwide soft-on-crime prosecutors who let violent criminals back out on the streets far too soon.
That was evidenced again, Breitbart reported, with the sentencing of Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, a 31-year-old illegal alien from Mexico who was found guilty of murdering a man on a scalloping boat off the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts in 2018.
The light sentencing, in the opinion of many, comes in the wake of Vazquez entering a guilty plea in March to one count of second-degree murder, one count of attempted murder, and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.
The story behind the killing is a chilling tale, Breitbart noted:
In the fall of 2018, Vazquez was aboard the Captain Billy Haver boat — about 50 miles off the coast of Nantucket — when he used a hammer to attack one of the six other crew members, leaving the man unconscious. Then, Vazquez attacked a second crew member, stabbing him multiple times with a fishing knife. When a third crew member tried to intervene, Vazquez struck him in the head with a hammer as well. When the captain of the boat tried to intervene, Vazquez attempted to stab him.
While most observers slammed the light sentencing for the convicted murderer, the FBI office in Boston bragged about the sentence on social media.

Notably, once Vasquez completes his sentence, he will be immediately deported, according to the sentencing guidelines.
The U.S. Coast Guard was able to bring the violent illegal alien into custody, and a high-ranking member released a statement on the matter.
“Our thoughts are with each of the families, nothing can replace their loved ones”, said Coast Guard Rear Admiral John Mauger, Commander, First Coast Guard District. “Commercial fishing is a foundation of maritime commerce, and we are focused on ensuring the safety of the industry. We sincerely appreciate the teamwork with our federal partners in bringing justice to this case.”
