CONGRESS: MORE THAN 179,000 CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ROAMING FREE IN THE U.S.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that more than 179,000 illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes, including violent ones, continue to roam free all across the United States, and further reports suggest that these illegal immigrants are committing new crimes every day, according to lawmakers and the director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, also known as ICE.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-AL) stated that approximately 179,029 “undocumented criminals with final orders of removal” from the United States currently remain at large all across the nation and are essentially untraceable.
The Washington Free Beacon also reported back in August that the Obama administration had been keeping secret the release of violent criminal illegal immigrants, and only began to inform local law enforcement agencies in recent months about these releases.
Sen. Grassley added, “Many criminals remain in our communities. When will enough be enough? Even those with violent criminal histories aren’t being removed as promised … American citizens are paying the price while law enforcement officers are instructed to look the other way.”
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) observed, “Our goal should be to keep 100% of all criminal aliens out of the United States. There is nothing wrong or controversial about such a policy.”
Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, paints a picture that is even more dire than that portrayed by ICE. “Last year ICE managed to deport just over 63,000 criminal aliens from the interior out of an estimated criminal alien population of over 2 million.”
Ann Coulter, in her book entitled “Adios, America!”, examines the crisis of illegal immigrants and crime and sums it up well when she concludes, “What is the cost in murder victims, rape survivors, facial reconstruction surgeries, drug overdoses, ruined lives, stolen property, and destroyed neighborhoods? We haven’t the first idea ….”
