When it comes to dealing with illegal immigration, the left loves to parade examples of hardworking families that ethically cannot be separated. When discussing the need for amnesty, they pretend that we are receiving the best and brightest from other nations. They often note such factoids as the founder of Google was an immigrant.
Of course, the best and brightest know how to immigrate legally. What we are too often left with are millions of low-skilled laborers who have to America to compete for American jobs and to exploit our system, not to embrace it.
We hear of the plight of criminals who wish to remain here in America, but the left seldom references the human cost of these decisions.
Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has revealed that since 2010, 124 illegal immigrants that have been released from their custody have been charged with murder.
These murderers account for 138 deaths—that’s 138 people that would be alive today if President Obama was committed to merely enforcing our nation’s laws.
A Center for Immigration Studies report details the data from ICE and that was offered to the Senate Judiciary Committee and notes that the committee refuses to release the names of the 124 illegals who have been charged with murder since 2010.
“The criminal aliens released by ICE in these years — who had already been convicted of thousands of crimes — are responsible for a significant crime spree in American communities, including 124 new homicides. Inexplicably, ICE is choosing to release some criminal aliens multiple times,” the report stated.
It also highlighted that 75% of the cases were examples where the illegals were released due to court orders or because their home countries would not take them back.
The message? If you’re scumbag in Mexico, you can be rewarded for your crimes if you are able to get to the U.S. where “leaders” are too weak to return you.
The report did not include data from the 300 or so “sanctuary cities” that refused to provide stats and did not include data on other crimes committed by illegals.
CIS’s director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan, also notes,
“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.”
President Obama and those seeking to undermine our laws give us examples of hardworking immigrants just trying to make a better life for themselves and their families and almost-always neglect to mention why, exactly, these “hardworking” immigrants could not be bothered to go through the legal immigration process and why, exactly, they should be rewarded for their criminality.
We hear about the plight of illegals; when will we finally hear about the millions of workers displaced by illegals? When will we hear about the countless American victims who have their property vandalized or stolen who have little recourse? When will we hear about the lives lost in the pursuit of this warped sense of social justice?
