It is the job of the Homeland Security Department, specifically Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to make sure they are capturing illegal aliens and deporting them, especially if they commit crimes.
But what is ICE actually doing with the illegals who commit crime? Because they aren’t deporting them.
Setting them free. And then hiding the fact that many of them go on to commit even MORE crimes.
This bombshell from the Boston Globe is utterly infuriating:
A Globe review of 323 criminals released in New England from 2008 to 2012 found that as many as 30 percent committed new offenses, including rape, attempted murder, and child molestation — a rate that is markedly higher than Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have suggested to Congress in the past.
The names of these criminals have never before been made public and are coming to light now only because the Globe sued the federal government for the list of criminals immigration authorities returned to neighborhoods across the country. A judge ordered the names released in 2013, and the Globe then undertook the work that the federal government didn’t, scouring court records to find out how many released criminals reoffended.
A NEWSPAPER had to do the work the government would not.
How bad is it? This bad:
Clear answers are hard to come by in a system that aggressively keeps its records from the public.
For example, ICE had insisted in court records that reoffenders were “isolated examples.” To Congress, ICE officials suggested that reoffenders were rare, less than 10 percent.
But the reoffender rate among the immigrants on the Globe’s list is clearly much higher, at 30 percent.
Thirty percent! There will be some who say, “Well that’s not much different from the typical recidivism rate.” Hold it. That it is not all that different doesn’t change the fact that:
- The government still covered up what the actual number is
- They failed to deport these criminals and as such, people have been hurt.
This is government incompetence at its worst. In fact, it is almost criminal. The most important job the government has is protecting the homeland and enforcing the laws. That illegal aliens can commit crimes, spend time in US prisons, be released and not deported, free to commit more crimes is not only a disgrace, but is putting citizens at risk.
Share this with others. Let them know what is going on and this needs to stop. Now.
