When crimes are committed by illegal aliens here in New York, the names are often kept secret, at least they are when the crimes are by a protected class such as an illegal alien. The same goes on in other sanctuary cities.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has reported that the Obama administration “grossly misrepresented” the “number of crimes the criminal aliens it released from custody in FY 2014 subsequently committed by nearly tenfold.”
Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) request on FAIR’s behalf, we now know that the 30,558 criminal aliens ICE released in FY 2014 committed 13,288 additional crimes.
The number of subsequent convictions contained in FIOA documents is far higher than the 1,423 additional offenses ICE reported to the House Judiciary Committee last July.
They lied to Congress.
The crimes are serious.
The criminal aliens released in FY 2014 who went on to commit those additional crimes had convictions for offenses like homicide, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, and drunk driving. The new crimes, according to ICE’s report to Congress, included vehicular homicide, domestic violence, sexual assault, DUI, burglary and assault.
“Rather than end dangerous politically-driven policies that have put a total of 85,000 deportable criminal aliens back onto the streets in the last three years, ICE tried to hide them by providing grossly inaccurate information to Congress and the American people,” Dan Stein, the president of FAIR, said in statement.
In response to the FY 2015 numbers, 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.”
It’s really worse than that. We have an open invitation for criminal foreigners to come here and kill us.
“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.”
There shouldn’t be any crimes by illegals. People need to come here legally and sanctuary cities need to be shut down.
This is common sense.
It’s one year since the young and beautiful Kate Steinle was murdered by a much-deported criminal alien and for which there will be no action by Congress.
