Congresswoman Norma Torres, Latina Democrat from California, may be doing more than any Republican has to support Trump's campaign proposal to deport illegal immigrants.
With unemployment claims down, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta predicting 4% GDP growth (never achieved in any quarter under Obama), and illegal immigration on the decline, President Trump may actually shift his plans to stop illegal immigration to the back burner, but Congresswoman Torres is picking up the slack.
Nexus Is Serving the Underserved
Torres recently asked the federal government to investigate a small but rapidly growing Virginia based company, Nexus, that facilitates bail bonding for people charged with crimes, including people being detained because of their status as illegal immigrants or people who have overstayed their Visas.
Before Nexus, detained illegal immigrants had more difficulty posting bail than did American citizens. Bail bondsmen had no interest in taking a risk on them, since they often have no collateral and if deported back to their home countries would be beyond the reach of debt collection.
