We already knew that Obama favored illegal aliens over the American people, but even we had no idea things were this bad…
According to Right Wing News, a whooping 95% of criminal illegal aliens that the Obama administration is aware of have not been detained. Instead, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) has revealed they are living in neighborhoods and communities all over the country.
“The American public has been misled by the ‘enforcement priorities,’ ‘deferred action,’ and ‘executive action’ policies of this Administration, which categorize only certain quote, unquote ‘serious’ criminal aliens as worthy of immigration enforcement,” Goodlatte said at a hearing examining the victims of illegal immigrant crime. “However, this Administration’s actions demonstrate that it finds it acceptable to permit even serious criminal aliens to prey on our communities.”
House Judiciary Committee says that the Obama administration has allowed tens of thousands of criminal aliens to remain in the U.S. through their relaxed enforcement policies.
“At least 95 percent of convicted criminal aliens known to [the Department of Homeland Security] are not detained,” Goodlatte said at Tuesday’s hearing.
The Republican congressman went on to argue against immigration activists’ contention that illegal immigration is a “victimless crime,” saying that this couldn’t be further from the truth.
“Illegal immigration has consequences that can be devastating,” he argued, according to Breitbart. “Americans deserve to know why this Administration would release thousands upon thousands of criminal aliens from DHS custody – despite convictions that included a total of 473 homicide-related offenses, 375 kidnappings, 890 sexual assaults, and 10,731 assaults before their release.”
Goodlatte then took on the liberal argument that the unaccompanied minors from Central America, who have been flooding across the border illegally by the tens of thousands and largely allowed to remain, are all helpless children.
“It is no coincidence that the spike in gang crime occurred during the same time that thousands of Central American minors were illegally entering at the southwest border. Sixty-four percent of validated gang members arrested in Frederick County in 2015 entered illegally through the southwest border as unaccompanied minors,” Goodlatte said.
