“Liberal governing has transformed beautiful California into the poverty capital of America with the worst quality of life. Crazy taxes, crazy high cost of living, and crazy overreaching regulations have crushed the middle class, forcing the middle class to exit the Sunshine State. All that is left in California are illegals feeding at the breast of the state, rapidly growing massive homeless tent cities, and the mega-rich.” LLOYD MARCUS
“Until lawmakers end the catch-and-release
policies of the Obama administration,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for
Immigration Studies, “any infrastructure improvements, new strategies, and
better metrics are pointless.”

(CNSNews.com) - U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested
2,059 criminal illegal aliens from 94 different countries during a five-day
operation conducted March 1-5.
That total includes 476 illegal aliens (23%) who had re-entered the United
States after previously being deported, federal
officials said Monday at a joint press conference by ICE and the Department
of Homeland Security.
Of the 2,059 criminals arrested, 1,013 -- almost half -- had been convicted
of more than one crime; and 1,036 had been convicted of a felony, including
voluntary manslaughter, child pornography, robbery and kidnapping.
Of the total 2,059 criminals arrested, 58 are known gang members or
affiliates, and 89 are convicted sex offenders.
An additional 912 illegal aliens were arrested for multiple
"significant misdemeanors," mostly repeated convictions for driving
under the influence.
According to ICE Director Sarah Saldana, one Mexican national already had
been deported six times when he was arrested once again in Oxnard, Calif. The
man has a history of crimes in the United States spanning the years 1983-2006,
including petty theft, carrying a loaded firearm in a public place, driving
under the influence, evading a peace officer, possession of a controlled
substance and grand theft, she said.
“Following his release from federal prison, a detainer on this individual
was not honored, and he was released back into the community,” Saldana said.
“ICE previously removed him from the United States in 2003, in 2004, in 2005,
in 2006, in 2008 and in 2013.”
Of the 2,059 who were arrested in March, 163 have been presented to U.S.
attorneys to be prosecuted, Saldana said. This includes aliens who will be
charged with illegal re-entry, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in
prison -- at American taxpayers' expense.
The arrests are part of the Cross Check Operation, conducted annually since
2011 by ICE and DHS.
According to a DHS press release, the five Cross Check operations to date
have resulted in the arrest of 12,440 criminal illegal aliens.
The foreign nationals detained in early March who are not being criminally
prosecuted will be processed administratively for removal from the United
States, ICE said. But it's not clear how many of them might be released
In FY 2012, ICE says it removed
409,849 illegal aliens. Fifty-five
percent of them (or 225,390) were convicted criminal aliens, the largest number
of criminal aliens removed in agency history, ICE said.

promised back taxes — but the requirement isn’t there; they promised tight
restrictions on welfare benefits — but state and local benefits, as well as tax
credits, will be available immediately and federal welfare access is granted to
millions of illegal immigrants starting in five years; they promised to protect

immigrants over the next decade and doubling the number of guest workers,”
BORDERS AGENDA WITH NARCOMEX:
Sarah Saldaña, who
will head Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE). She will be the first Hispanic woman to lead the agency.
“She will continue
the pattern of lawlessness perpetuated by thepresident and the
political leadership at the Department of Homeland Security,” Sen. Jeff
Sessions (R-Ala.) said. Congress cannot and must not confirm anyone to lead an
agency in DHS or other law enforcement agency who supports executive amnesty.”
