According to the Miami Herald, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of State say 121 homicides could have been prevented between 2010 and 2014 had more immigrant convicts been deported.
This shocking number comes after a 2015 U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee document was reviewed by the el Nuevo Herald.
“This disturbing fact follows ICE’s admission that, of the 36,007 criminal aliens it released from ICE custody in Fiscal Year 2013, 1,000 have been re-convicted of additional crimes in the short time since their release,” according to a letter sent to the DOJ.
But these weren’t just any crimes. The letter states 121 immigrant convicts committed murder after they were released from ICE custody.
The review by the Senate Judiciary Committee shows that ICE released 2,457 immigrant convicts in 2014 alone because the Supreme Court did not allow ICE to detain deportable immigrants for more than six months.
According to the letter, 1,183 of the convicted immigrants were from Cuba, with Afghanistan, Algeria, China, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and Zimbabwe following close behind.
This new evidence could be a major factor in justifying President Donald Trump’s recent efforts to deport convicted immigrants as quickly as possible.
“There are at least 23 countries that refuse to take their people back after they’ve been ordered to leave the United States, including large numbers of violent criminals,” Trump has said. “ They won’t take them back. So we say, ‘Okay, we’ll keep them?’ Not going to happen with me, not going to happen with me.”
