DHS Released Another 30,000 Criminal Aliens onto Streets

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, March 18, 2015

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.

New ICE Director Sarah R. Saldana said the number “still concerns me.”

“I am determined to continue to take every possible measure to ensure the public’s safety and the removal of dangerous criminals,” she said in announcing the new steps.

ICE said it had little discretion over most of the criminals it released. The agency said that under a previous court decision, immigrants whose home countries won’t take them back cannot be held indefinitely, so they have to be released after a period of time.

Republicans in Congress have proposed rewriting the law to allow for longer detention of serious criminals, and they have called on the Obama administration to use existing powers to deny visas to leaders of countries that refuse to take their citizens back.

But the administration has declined to take those steps.

Those released from custody are generally supposed to be monitored, and Ms. Saldana vowed to stiffen those procedures to try to ensure those that are released are not able to commit new crimes.

ICE didn’t release a breakdown of criminal offenses of the new 30,000 on Wednesday, but among the 36,000 released in 2013 were 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions and 16,070 convictions for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

    Of course they did. Because they are just so concerned about the safety and well-being of Americans.

  • D.B. Cooper

    These parasites need to be dumped off in Vermont, Maine, and any other white area that claims diversity is our strength while they themselves don’t practice it.

    • Cid Campeador

      Vermont and Maine may be our last refuge until they come for us there. This can only be settled by one thing.
      The discussion of race? There is nothing left to discuss. Starbucks can go to Hell!!!

      • Jason Lewis

        Where we go so does civilization. We will be followed.

        • Cid Campeador

          WE have to make the “follower” fear us.

      • ElComadreja

        Vermont and parts of Maine are full of negro worshiping liberals. It’s damn easy to like something if you’re insulated from the problem.

    • newscomments70

      What the hell are you talking about? I’ve lived in these places and most folks there are race realist. Stop generalizing, and wishing death on people you don’t even know. They’re not all the same person.

    • John Ambrose

      Dump ’em in the neighborhoods of Mark Zuckerberg, Rupert Murdoch, Jeb and W. Bush, Mike Bloomberg…

      • Reynardine

        Yes, but Jeb married one.

        • Cid Campeador

          She comes up to his belt line and looks like she could be his old aunt. I’m still trying to figure out that one.
          I wouldn’t compare her to a Mayate.

          • Alden

            According to Jeb, she was the prettiest girl n town.

          • He’s right. I bet at one time she was the toast of Huitzilopochtlicuauhtemocixolojo.

          • Race War Provisions

            Was that town East St. Louis?

    • Michael Robert Ryan

      Marin County would be my first choice…

      • newscomments70

        Interesting you should say that. Liberals in Marin County would not allow George Lucas to build a studio. He is now building section 8 housing there to spite them.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    The communist party (some prefer “Democrats”) want them to be able to vote before they go to the “Slam” or the “Big House,” permanently…

    Another innocent White man was out walking his dog in West Filthadelphia and was shot dead by two “Youths” in an attempted robbery AKA a robbery gong wrong,
    The man pleaded with them not to shoot him but they did. Two of them were 15 and one was 14. The latter won’t be charged with murder due to his age. He usually walked his dog with his 13 year old daughter but it was later than he usually walks the dog so he told her to stay at home because it was too late. If she had been there she probably would have been dragged into an alley and raped and perhaps killed as well.
    WHEN THE f— IS THERE GOING TO BE A RECKONING!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????

    • phillyguy

      He was a white liberal and I think he was married to a black woman living in a black section of the city.

      • Cid Campeador

        To the blacks, he was just another crackuh!!

      • ElComadreja

        Serves him right.

    • Alden

      It was not a robbery “gone wrong” as the liberals call it. The things were polar bear hunting as part of joining a gang.

  • Luca

    The Second Amendment is all we have at this point.

    • Jason Lewis

      Ridculous to go to that point. The cost of their crimes, arrest, jailing and trial has to far exceed the cost of a one way plane ticket.

    • Cid Campeador

      DId anyone see Geraldo this morning on F &F? Ya just want to whack him across the face with a canvas bank bag full of quarters.

      • ElComadreja

        For a “White Hispanic” he sure does love his negros.

  • Jason Lewis

    I’m sure the 82nd Airborne has 30,000 old parachutes. (I’m humane) One way flight to home country of origin and push em out.

    • Reynardine

      You can get much more by using the damaged and poorly packed ones too.

    • phillyguy

      please don’t say that ,, my father served honorably with the 82nd in Korea

    • Cid Campeador

      Forget the Chutes. Get the cargo plane in a steep climb and then open the back doors. All crew members HOLD ON.

    • ElComadreja

      I wouldn’t waste the parachutes on them.

  • listenupbub

    A new imprimis has come out that talks about the issue of our government’s unwillingness to deport illegals.


  • Reynardine

    They’re playing the opposite of Pokemon:

    Gotta release ’em all!

  • Marilyn

    They’re crazy!

    Just be thankful the borders aren’t wide open, otherwise there’d be a lot more illegal alien criminals released.

    Apparently a lot of them are being dumped in California. This is on top of “regular” criminals being mass released to comply with a court order to reduce prison overcrowding. We were told only low level offenders would be released, and there would be no threat to the public.

    March, 2015, San Francisco CA:

    According to Police Chief Greg Suhr:

    Burglaries are up 20 percent, larceny and theft up 40 percent, auto theft is up more than 55 percent, between 2010 and 2014. Suhr said those crimes shot up largely due to prison realignment (codeword for mass release of prisoners) . Suhr said auto burglaries are up quite a bit this year, and he believes it’s because of the Prop. 47 release.

    How much longer are “We The People” going to let this criminal gov’t crap all over us?

    • ElComadreja

      Judging by the last couple of elections, forever.

  • Greg Thomas

    We have become the dumping ground for the entire third world. To add insult to injury, we allow these same third world countries to dictate who they will take back. How many billions of dollars are we sending in “aid” to these countries I wonder.

    • archer

      Common sense, any citizen from any country that will not enter into a extradition treaty with us, including Israel, should be denied a visa and that country should be denied foreign aid. We would save billions and not be a dumping ground anymore.

    • Cid Campeador

      The ultimate goal is to make America the THIRD WORLD.
      WE are the new Jews. They want us gone. This country will become HISPANOAFRICANIA. THe Lingua Franca will be Españobonics.
      ¿ Qué te be happnin’ dawg?

        He went soft in the end though.

    I am so glad and feel so safe that the number is down by 6000. Sarcasm!!!

    It doesn’t matter as you have millions of “YT” hating black “youth” roaming about like feral beasts emboldened by Obama, Holder, et al (BRA), liberal lemming enablers, etc. to do as they will whether it’s attacking senior citizens, five year olds, or just running around in groups rioting. What’s another 30k?

    It turns out the duty of department of homeland security is to release criminal aliens and see whether they can use their criminal nature to add “diversity” of this country. Shouldn’t DHS be renamed DHI (department of homeland invasion)?

  • Dale McNamee

    “Department of Homeland Security”… Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw, haw, haw, haw, giggle, giggle , giggle, snort…

    • Cid Campeador

      Really. That is a joke. Homeland ( Whose?) Security ( Where?)

      • Dale McNamee

        I agree, Cid. The only way to deal with this is mocking laughter…

        • Cid Campeador

          Laugh when you ammo order is delivered.

    Lest we forget Lewiston Maine where they installed some 20,000 Somalis into that nice New England town. Somalis; The ones with the extended foreheads and gigantic overbites; not only Black but Muslim Black. There’s a double dose of danger. They’re the ones who dragged the mutilated body of one of our soldiers through the street of Mogadishu.
    Within a few months there were several incidents of crimes against each other “Honor Killings” and if my memory serves me several rapes. That’s a certainty where you’ve got BMs i.e. Black Muslims. I’m not sure against whom the rapes were perpetrated but to be sure there will be more.

    Articles like this make me ashamed to have served in the US military. I can not believe I sacrificed so much for a country that hates me and everyone who looks like me. At this point, we have no other choice than to choose a part of the country, all move there, and draw a line in the sand. White people will not survive if we continue on this path.

    • Who Me?

      Check out Northwestfront DOT com It may sound silly, but it’s just exactly what you said, (“choose a part of the country, all move there, and draw a line in the sand”) and it’s the only hope we have left.

  • Cid Campeador

    On top of all this Obama wants to close Guantánamo and put the remaining fanatics in a corrections facility State Side. That way these bastards convert and radicalize our home grown “youths” so they can get out and visit even more violence on us.

  • ekwaykway

    They are not immigrants, they are not aliens, they are illegals, it’s important to know what words mean.

  • carriewhite64

    “…immigrants whose home countries won’t take them back…” Seriously? America has truly become the sissy of the world.
