124 Illegal Immigrants Were Arrested, Released, and Later Charged With Murder

Not surprisingly, when people break the law and are released without consequence, they tend to break the law again.

This fact of life has devastating consequences on the national security of the United States, particularly when it comes to our failed immigration system and repeat violent criminal offenders.

The Washington Examiner reports:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed that 124 illegal immigrant criminals released from jail by the Obama administration since 2010 have been subsequently charged with murder. A Center for Immigration Studies report on the data from ICE to the Senate Judiciary Committee added that the committee is not releasing the names of the murder suspects.

“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,” said the report written by CIS’s respected director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan.

She added that 75 percent were released due to court orders or because their countries wouldn’t take them back. What’s more, her report said that in 2014, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens who had been convicted of 92,347 crimes. Only 3 percent have been deported.

You read that right. Only THREE percent. And that’s not even the whole of it:

…And despite the high number of illegal immigrants charged with murder, the list doesn’t include those released by over 300 so-called “sanctuary cities” and those ICE declined to take into custody.

These aren’t just political issues. The lawlessness of the Obama Administration has deadly consequences on our communities.
