WASHINGTON, DC (March 14, 2016) — New information released to the Senate Judiciary Committee quantifies the public safety impact of the Obama administration's lenient approach to immigration enforcement, in which thousands of criminal aliens are allowed to remain at large each year instead of detained and processed for prompt deportation. Criminal aliens released by ICE between 2010 and 2015 have been charged with 124 new homicides and thousands of other crimes that harm citizens and degrade the quality of life in American communities.
The Center for Immigration Studies reports that only a tiny percentage of the released criminals have been removed. Only 3 percent of the criminal aliens released in 2014 have been removed, with most receiving the most generous forms of due process available, and are allowed to remain at large, without supervision, while they await drawn-out immigration hearings.
The vast majority (124) of these criminal aliens were released in California. In addition, 16 were released in Arizona, six in Texas, three in Florida, two in Georgia, and one each in North Carolina, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Washington, and Oregon.Read More HERE
