Excerpt: If we had deported no criminal aliens between 2010 and 2015, there would be 1,066,947 criminal aliens still residing in the United States. Even if we control for immigration crimes (illegal re-entry, unlawful presence), there would still be 787,702 alien criminals in the United States, with many eligible for parole to be released back into the community.
These are not victimless crimes. Of this group, 90,134 deported aliens were convicted of assault; 18,859 have been convicted of violent sexual assault. There have been 211,677 deported aliens convicted of possessing and selling dangerous drugs. CHIRLA and NDLON believe that all of these 787,702 criminals should be
allowed to stay in the United States.
