Homeless man shot by LAPD was barred from his birth country

The African homeless man shot by the LAPD was an illegal alien bank robber. He served time in prison and was supposed to be deport. However, his birth country of Cameroon refused to take him back.

ICE tried to dump him on France, which also refused to take him. So the violent illegal alien criminal was released into the streets.

The US taxpayers give huge amounts of annual aid to Cameroon, despite the countries vast untapped natural resources. The Federal government called have threatened Cameroon’s aid, and they would have readily agreed to take Robinet back with a smile.

Now the LAPD is under attack after shooting him in self-defense.

From LA Times…

A homeless foreigner shot to death by Los Angeles police was in the country illegally after serving time for a bank robbery but couldn’t be deported because no country would take him, U.S. immigration authorities said Wednesday.

France issued travel documents for a man identified as Charley Saturmin Robinet but rescinded them in June 2013 after determining it was an assumed name and the man was really from Cameroon, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said in a statement.

ICE, which had issued a deportation order in April 2013, said Cameroon consular officials failed to respond to repeated requests for travel documents after France spurned him.

Cameroonian officials could not immediately be reached to comment. Voicemail for a phone line at the country’s embassy in Washington, D.C., was full Wednesday.
