Angry Lamar Smith Calls ICE Release of 36,000 Criminal Immigrants a President-Sanctioned Pr

Quote:
Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith reacted harshly to a new report detailing the crimes committed by 36,007 criminal immigrants that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released last year.

“This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the President and perpetrated by our own immigration officials. These criminal immigrants should have been deported to ensure that they could never commit crimes on U.S. soil. But instead, ICE officials chose not to detain them and instead released them back onto American streets,” Smith said in a statement Monday.

An internal Department of Homeland Security document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies, a limited immigration group, and shared with Breitbart News Monday revealed that last year ICE released 36,007 criminal immigrants who had nearly 88,000 convictions.

The document further broke down the crimes and number of convictions – including 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions.

CIS detailed the document’s findings in a report Monday morning, explaining that ICE prepared the document in response to congressional inquiries seeking additional information about the number of criminal aliens released into the United States and the crimes for which they were convicted.

obama does not have the best interest of the country at heart, he is willfully trying to destroy this once great nation. What he is doing is criminal and he should be tried for treason, not just impeached.

The Obama administration released thousands of convicted criminals -- including murderers and those convicted of sexual assault -- while they were awaiting deportation proceedings, according to a new report.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based advocacy group, released the statistics on Monday, in its latest bid to draw attention to what analysts with the organization say are lax enforcement practices by the Obama administration.

The numbers showed that in 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 "convicted criminal aliens" while they were waiting for the outcome of their deportation cases. They represented a total of 88,000 convictions.

The majority of the cases involved individuals convicted on lower-level or nonviolent offenses, like auto theft, drunk-driving and drug charges. But many were involved in more serious cases.

According to the report, the 88,000 convictions included:

-- 193 homicide convictions

-- 426 sexual assault convictions

-- 303 kidnapping convictions

-- More than 1,000 aggravated assault convictions

Jessica Vaughan, the group's director of policy studies, said in a statement she was "astonished" by the figures. Referring to an ongoing Department of Homeland Security review of deportation policies, she said any "further relaxation of enforcement" would be "hard to justify" in light of the statistics.

Another scandal. It's hard to keep up with all of these. The incompetence of the Obama Administration is beyond belief. They have no problem endangering Americans' lives to suit their political purposes and buy votes. The once proud Democratic Party has become a cesspool of inadequacy, arrogance and a complete lack of moral compass.

But hey, 40YF, what's another one of those "phony" scandals if you can let 36,000 votes out of jail?
