New report claims ICE released 68,000 illegal aliens who have committed additional crimes

March 31, 2014

 Late last night the Department of Homeland Security released the results of an internal investigation, which according to this story, states that ICE released 68,000 illegal aliens who have committed crimes in addition to entering the country illegally.

The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. “The criminal alien releases typically occur without formal notice to local law enforcement agencies and victims,” CIS’s Jessica Vaughan, the report’s author, added.

  While that is bad enough in and of itself the number is most likely even higher than this because this report did not include illegal aliens who committed traffic violations, including driving while under the influence and vehicular homicide:

By “criminal,” ICE means people who have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony that is not a traffic violation. For instance, traffic violations like Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or even vehicular manslaughter do not count toward this description of “criminal alien.”

  Needless to say, these are crimes which American citizens would be held accountable for but apparently illegal aliens are above the law. This did not sit well with Jeff Sessions who summed up the situation thusly:

“The preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that immigration enforcement in America has collapsed,” Sessions said. “Even those with criminal convictions are being released. DHS is a department in crisis. Secretary [Jeh] Johnson must reject the President’s demands to weaken enforcement further and tell him that his duty, and his officers’ duty, is to enforce the law – not break it. As Homeland Secretary, Mr. Johnson is tasked with ensuring the public safety and the rule of law. But Secretary Johnson is not meeting these duties.”

  He nailed it, but what are the Republicans in the Congress going to do about it other than sit around and bitch about it? DHS is trusted with keeping American citizens safe on the homeland and as we can see here the department is derelict of duty when it comes to protecting American citizens from illegal aliens who have a criminal record. The department seems more interested in protecting criminal illegal aliens from the law than it does in enforcing the laws.

  At this point is appears as if there is no law, or probably more accurately, law based simply on a whim of the president which could change on a daily basis.

  What is the worst that could happen? For more on this story check out Larry’s post on Political Realities.

    Thanks for the link, Steve. As I have already said on my blog, I’m not sure why they are keeping up the pretense of being hard on illegal immigration. It’s clear to anyone who is paying attention that they have no intention of enforcing the law.

      You are welcome Larry. They are keeping up the pretense because the media allows them to get away with it, until they are called out they will keep pushing the envelope.

    They are baiting us and obviously bent in inciting a conflict. Then they an declare martial law and I assume they think the people will just go to the FEMA camps willingly….??

      Thanks for the reblog and it does seem like so much that this regime does is done to entice people into action.
