Immigration official defends the RELEASE of 30,000 illegal aliens onto American streets

Despite what Juan Williams will tell you, this administration is doing a crap job of actually capturing and deporting illegal aliens. Congress demanded some answers from ICE director Sarah Saldana for the release of 30,000 illegal aliens last year, but few answers were forthcoming.

From Fox News:



More from the Washington Times:

Federal immigration officers released another 30,000 immigrants with criminal records last year, following the 36,000 it released in 2013, the government announced Wednesday — though it promised to take steps to cut down on the problem.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency that handles detention and removal of illegal immigrants, said it will no longer allow overcrowding to be the main reason a dangerous illegal immigrant is released, and will require a top supervisor to approve the cases of any serious criminals that officers want to release.

Overall, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens in fiscal year 2014, which is down from the 36,007 criminals released a year before.

The 2013 releases prompted an outcry, and the latest news that the releases continue is likely to renew the calls for ICE to get a handle on its actions.
