Lawless Immigration Policies of the
in enforcement is a policy choice by the White House
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, testifies at the hearing that the Obama administration's "radical new approach to immigration law" has resulted in more than a 70 percent decline in deportations from the interior and over a 50 percent decline in the removal of criminal aliens.
Read the written testimony at: http://cis.org/testimony/Krikorian-Declining-Deportations-and-Increasing-Criminal-Alien-Releases
Krikorian describes the egregious crimes committed by many of the approximately 85,000 criminal aliens who have been released from custody and blames the public safety costs, in part, on the administration's termination of the successful Secure Communities program. Criminal aliens are being released into our communities rather than being released because the new Priority Enforcement Program (PEP) suppresses enforcement.
The testimony concludes with a quote from the former Democratic congresswoman and civil rights pioneer, Barbara Jordan:
"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

Border Surge Solution: Send ‘Em to Camp David!

Human Events Online, February 17, 2016

As Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council testified on Capitol Hill recently: “The cartels understood that the unaccompanied minors would force the Border Patrol to deploy Agents to these crossing areas in order to take the minors into custody. I want to stress this point because it has been completely overlooked by the press,” he told the House Judiciary Committee. The unaccompanied minors could have walked right up to the port of entry and requested asylum if they were truly escaping political persecution or violence. “Why did the cartels drive them to the middle of the desert and then have them cross over the Rio Grande only to surrender to the first Border Patrol Agent they came across?” Judd challenged.
“The reason is that it completely tied up our manpower and allowed the cartels to smuggle whatever they wanted across our border.”
This is just another maddening example of Obama’s warped priorities at work. Instead of building effective walls and enforcing our borders to prevent the coming illegal immigration waves manufactured by criminal racketeers, this administration rushes to build welcome center magnets that shelter the next generation of Democrat voters.
U.S. Failed Three Times to Deport Illegal Alien Who Murdered Woman
Judicial Watch Corruption Chronicles, February 18, 2016
. . .
Here’s what we already know from local media reports in Norwich, the city of about 40,000 residents where the murder occurred; the DHS agency responsible for deporting illegal immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), failed to remove Jacques at least three times dating back to 2002. As if this weren’t atrocious enough, Jacques spent 17 years in prison for attempted murder before authorities released him—instead of deporting him—in January of 2015, the Norwich Bulletin reports. Six months later the 41-year-old illegal alien convict stabbed 25-year-old Casey Chadwick to death. Police said Chadwick died of sharp forced injuries to the head and neck. Jacques is being held on a $1 million bond.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. In the last few years illegal immigrants with lengthy criminal histories have been allowed to remain in the U.S. despite being repeat offenders. Judicial Watch has investigated several of the cases and obtained public records from the government. For instance, back in 2008 JW launched a California public records request with the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department to obtain he arrest and booking information on Edwin Ramos, an illegal alien from El Salvador who murdered three innocent American citizens. Ramos was a member of a renowned violent street gang and had been convicted of two felonies as a juvenile (a gang-related assault on a bus passenger and the attempted robbery of a pregnant woman) yet he was allowed to remain in the country.

Dozens of Homicides Committed by Criminal Aliens After Being Released by ICE
By Mark Krikorian
The Corner at National Review Online, March 14, 2016
The federal government shares responsibility when any illegal alien commits murder — it failed to keep him out in the first place. And when a sanctuary city releases a deportable criminal, Washington shares the blame for any subsequent crimes because it’s not cracking down on such rogue jurisdictions nullifying federal law.
But federal responsibility is greatest when ICE actually has the criminal aliens in its custody, and then releases them to go and kill some more. Needless to say, the Obama administration doesn’t advertise when that happens.
But the Senate Judiciary Committee demanded the information from ICE, which my colleague Jessica Vaughan has summarized. The most outrageous find: Since 2010, 124 criminal aliens who were in ICEs custody and then released went on to be charged with 135 new homicides.
The Judiciary Committee also asked about criminal aliens released by ICE more than once. Since 2013, there have been 156 such criminal aliens, who racked up between them a total of 243 additional convictions after being let go.
None of these statistics include criminal aliens released by sanctuary cities or those whom ICE simply refused to pick up from local jails in the first place. These are only those who were in ICE’s hands, and then let go.
Many of these non-citizen criminals were released with ICE’s affirmative consent. A significant number were ordered released by the Justice Department, pursuant to a Supreme Court decision, because their home countries wouldn’t take them back. But even here, the administration is culpable. The Secretary of State is required by law to suspend the issuance of visas in any country that won’t take back its own citizens. The Obama administration has never — not once — complied with this legal requirement.
Here’s the list of countries ICE has identified as refusing to take back their deportable citizens:
Afghanistan, Algeria, Burundi, Cape Verde, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, India, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, and Zimbabwe.
Afghanistan and Iraq? We let our colonies refuse to accept their deportable citizens, so they can stay here and commit more crimes? Who, then, is the colonizer and who the colonized? And how about Cuba? The administration has made clear that the issue of deportees wasn’t — and still isn’t — even on the table in discussion of normalizing relations. And the idea that pipsqueak countries like Gambia or Cape Verde can freely defy us suggests that “superpower” doesn’t mean what people think.
Politicians have no business even suggesting things like amnesty or increased immigration and guestworkers until outrages like this are banished.
Half of all murders are now committed by MEX gangs!
CA has the largest and most expensive prison system in the nation. Half the inmates are MEX.
Of the top 200 most wanted criminals in La Raza-occupied Los Angeles, 186 are MEX.
There have been more than 2,000 Californians murdered by Mexicans who fled back over the border to avoid prosecution.
WHERE'S THE OUTRAGE?

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 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.

Instead, the administration allows funded detention space to go unused, declines to use efficient forms of due process for criminals, and shifts millions of dollars that Congress provided for enforcement to other purposes. In addition, they have failed to take action against recalcitrant countries that won’t accept the return of their deported citizens.”
Inexplicably, ICE is choosing to release some criminal aliens multiple times. Two of them had homicide-related convictions even before they were released. These aliens had 464 criminal convictions prior to release by ICE, ranging from drug crimes to DUI and other driving offenses to larceny and theft.
This tally does not include aliens who were released by sanctuary jurisdictions, nor those aliens that were released by local law enforcement agencies after ICE declined to take them into custody due to Obama administration prioritization policies. This list includes only those aliens that ICE arrested and then released.
ICE reported that there are 156 criminal aliens who were released at least twice by ICE since 2013. Between them, these criminals had 1,776 convictions before their first release in 2013, with burglary, larceny, and drug possession listed most frequently.
Without the congressional inquiry into criminal alien crime, the public would not have this Immigration status information from ICE, which should be reported on a routine basis by all law enforcement agencies. Legislation has been introduced by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) that would remedy this problem.

VIDEO: 17 Suspected Illegal Aliens Caught off California Coast
Seventeen suspected illegal aliens aboard a panga boat sent a
distress signal off the coast of San Diego on Tuesday morning
that led the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border
Protection (CBP) to apprehend the group.Video of the stranded boat was released, along with the Coast Guard’s announcement that the 17 aboard were taken to a local Border Patrol station for processing.
Crew aboard the 87-foot Coast Guard Cutter Sea Otter spotted a flare around 4:45 a.m. Tuesday morning off the coast of San Diego, according to the Coast Guard. Coast Guard Sector San Diego Joint Harbor Operations Center watchstanders also received a 911 call around 5:30 a.m. from one of the persons aboard the panga boat.
The Coast Guard release described the operation to find and rescue those aboard:
A Sector San Diego MH-60 Jayhawk crew and CBP AMO UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter crew immediately launched to search and at approximately 6:50 a.m., the CBP AMO Blackhawk crew located the vessel approximately eight miles west of Pacific Beach, in San Diego.The group was picked up approximately eight miles off of San Diego’s Pacific Beach, and delivered to Shelter Island. From there, the Marine Task Force took the group into custody. The 17 were then transported to the Border Patrol office.
At 8:15 a.m., the Sea Otter’s crew arrived on scene with the vessel and safely rescued 17 suspected illegal migrants from the disabled panga.
Last August, illegal aliens were caught at least twice trying to enter the United States off the coast of southern California. Also last August, a lawsuit was filed naming three CBP agents over the death of an illegal alien aboard a panga boat. The Mexican national perished as a boat of illegal aliens attempted to evade capture and capsized.
