Deportation: “What, Me Worry?”


by Warren Beatty

 

As Keith Koffler at Whitehouse Dossier says, “Unless the Obama administration starts allowing non-citizens to send absentee ballots from Mexico, is does Democrats no good to deport all these future voters.”

Key Words: “future voters.” When what Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama is currently doing (or not doing) is examined through a future voter lens, his actions make perfect sense.

Although most illegal immigrants come to the attention of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) because of proven or alleged criminal behavior, the Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama administration deports only about a quarter of the illegal immigrants it retains. According to a Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report:
In 2013, ICE reported 722,000 encounters with potentially deportable aliens, most of whom came to their attention after incarceration for a local arrest. Yet ICE officials followed through with immigration charges for only 195,000 of these aliens, only about one-fourth.

About three-fourths of the aliens ICE detained in 2013 had criminal and/or immigration convictions so serious that the detention was required by statute.

ICE reports that there are more than 870,000 aliens on its docket who have been ordered removed, but who remain in defiance of the law.

Under current policies, an alien’s family relationships, political considerations, attention from advocacy groups, and other factors not related to public safety can trump even serious criminal convictions and result in the termination of a deportation case.
Over 541,000 illegal immigrants were released in 2013 alone, 68,000 (35%) with criminal convictions. A majority of the releases occurred not because the illegal immigrants had legal status or were qualified to stay in the United States, but because of current policies that shield most illegal immigrants from enforcement of our laws.

And the situation is only getting worse. The Obama administration’s pending review of deportation practices, its “prosecutorial discretion” policy, has, since 2011, caused a 40% decline in deportations. The administration may further relax its lenient “prosecutorial discretion” when deciding whether or not to deport illegal immigrants. And it is possibility that enforcement is being reduced now that Obama has been reelected.

The CIS report notes that the administration’s claims to have deported record numbers of illegal immigrants is based on its redefinition of “deported:”

An independent analysis of ICE records … showed that ICE was able to achieve these “record” departures only because the agency was taking credit for removing a large number of individuals who were apprehended by the Border Patrol. Such cases made up the majority of ICE’s reported deportations in 2013, but they had never been counted that way in previous administrations.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson recently admitted to a House committee that the administration’s deportation figures are not comparable to previous administrations because of the large number of border removal cases.
Where is the MSM on this? Oh, yeah, they want to protect Obama regardless of the cost to the U.S.

But that’s just my opinion.

    This is so sickening I can hardly stand it. Most of the illegals are here to rip us off. Their schools have taught them that they are ENTITLED to this land. They feel that we OWE them. Same thing with the muslims. They come here and feel that we OWE them because we aren’t muslims. It’s a deriliction of duty to have our president rewarding people for their bad behavior. We can’t get away with half the crap that foreigners do.

    I cannot stand it, either. We are losing our American culture and identity to a bunch of illegal criminals. If I liked the Mexican lifestyle, I wold move there. Don’t bring it here. Secure our borders and send them home. Legal and controlled immigration only for those who truly want to become assimilated Americans. And get rid of all those illegal jihadist Obama voters. This is a Christian country and no one is allowed to come here and change that.
    Thank you, Jim for all you do and please excuse my rant but i am hopping mad.
