Something is going in the wrong direction – it’s the illegal aliens.
According to a new analysis from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, taxpayers are paying more – for less. Specifically, the budget for deportations has continued to grow over the past four years, but the number of actual deportations has PLUMMETED, says Breitbart, who obtained the report.
DEPORTATIONS, according to Department of Homeland Security:
In fiscal year 2012, ICE deported 180,970 aliens from the interior and 228,879 from the border.
In fiscal year 2015, ICE deported 69,478 aliens from the interior, and 165,935 from the border.
ICE deported 43 percent FEWER aliens in 2015 than in 2012 – and nearly 62 percent fewer from the interior of the United States. One the illegal aliens are becoming embedded into society, the United States government is NOT getting them out.
BUDGET for removals and detentions has continued to GROW:
2012 Budget $2,750,843,000.
2015 Budget $3,431,444,000.
The same old excuse of “lack of resources” has been used by ICE as the reason they aren’t deporting more people, according to Senator Jeff Sessions. In 2011 ICE claimed they “only had resources to removed approximately 400,000 aliens per year.” Again in 2014, the exact same excuse was given. Trouble is, their resources have continued to GROW.
CRIMINAL ALIENS – these are the very type of illegals the administration says are a priority – yet deportations are down here too by 41 percent.
2012 Criminal Alien Deportations: 235,390
2015 Criminal Alien Deportations: 139,368
