“Obama administration immigration policies are creating a sanctuary for thousands of illegal alien criminals.”
A new report from the Federal for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) says the Obama administration “grossly misrepresented” the number of crimes committed by criminal illegal aliens who are released from jail. The number is actually about 10 times what was reported, according to Breitbart.
FAIR revealed that the 30,558 criminal illegals which ICE set free in 2014 went on to comment 13,288 additional crimes. ICE reported only 1,423 criminal offenses.
The aliens who were freed already had convictions for offenses like homicide, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, and drunk driving.
New crimes committed included vehicular homicide, sexual assault, DUI, Domestic violence, burglary and assault.
In 2015, ICE released an additional 19,723 criminal illegal aliens, who already had a combined total of 64,197 convictions.
In total, the Obama administration has put 85,000 total deportable criminal aliens back on the streets in the past three years, according to Dan Stein, the president of FAIR. He said “ICE tried to hide them by providing grossly inaccurate information to Congress and the American people.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte warned that the Obama Administration’s immigration policies are creating “a sanctuary for tens of thousands of criminal aliens.”
“The American public has been misled by the enforcement priorities, deferred action, and executive action policies of this Administration, which categorize only certain so-called ‘serious’ criminal aliens as worthy of detention and then removal,” Goodlatte said in a statement. “Despite its rhetoric, the fact remains that the Obama Administration continues to willingly free dangerous criminal aliens, allowing them to continue to prey upon communities across the United States.”
