Rep. Tim Ryan backs restriction on Brazilian visas
Yongstown Democrat says Brazil's lax extradition policy makes it easy to allow Brazilian nationals to commit crimes in the US, then flee to their homeland
by WKSU's KABIR BHATIA


Reporter
Kabir Bhatia
 
In The Region:
A bill to limit immigrant visas to Brazilian citizens passed the House Appropriations Committee today, backed by Youngstown Congressman Tim Ryan.

In a press release, he said he supports the bill due to Brazil’s refusal to extradite citizens that are suspected of committing crimes in the US.

Ryan cites the case of Air Force Reserve Veteran Karl Hoerig, who was found shot to death in his Newton Falls home in 2007.  The primary suspect is Hoerig’s wife, Claudia, who Ryan says fled to her native Brazil.

His request is so offensive and authoritarian. He is asking us to violate our constitution and our extradition treaty with USA, as our laws are less important than USA laws. We too are NATION OF LAWS. He has another option as suggest in the letter from Brazil's consulate to him. He can prosecute her in Brazil, but he chose blackmail us to promote himself in the media.

Just a question to Mr. Ryan...Why the US wouldn't extradite the two pilots of the Legacy jet that collided ( flight 1907 Dec 2006) in Brazil? That accident killed 154 passengers.
