ICE And Obama Dither Over Deporting Illegal Aliens With Multiple Felonies

By 19 Comments 2,994 views

Illegal Aliens with multiple offenses are not considered for deportation, leaving Americans asking, “Who the Hell do we deport?” In an accessible text file for GAO report number GAO-05-646R entitled ‘Information on Certain Illegal Aliens Arrested in the United States’, it was released on May 9, 2005.

Subject: Information on Certain Illegal Aliens Arrested in the United

Obviously our government has an affection for the illegal Mexican alien that transcends common sense and decency. By allowing these policies to continue makes us complicit in the absurdity of Progressive nonsense that costs our country untold millions in financial loss and suffering.

We performed our work from October 2004 through May 2005 in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Further details on our scope and methodology, including how we selected the illegal aliens in our study population, are discussed in enclosure II.


The briefing slides in enclosure I address each of our three questions. In summary, for our study population of 55,322 illegal aliens, we found that:

* They were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than 1 arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Most of the arrests occurred after 1990.

* They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien. One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one and half times more offenses than arrests.[Footnote 6] Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses. About 45 percent of all offenses were drug or immigration offenses. About 15 percent were property-related offenses such as burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and property damage.

About 12 percent were for violent offenses such as murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes. The balance was for such other offenses as traffic violations, including driving under the influence; fraud–including forgery and counterfeiting; weapons violations; and obstruction of justice.

* Eighty percent of all arrests occurred in three states–California, Texas, and Arizona. Specifically, about 58 percent of all arrests occurred in California, 14 percent in Texas, and 8 percent in Arizona.

Agency Comments and Our Evaluation:

The Departments of Justice and Homeland Security reviewed a draft of this report and had technical comments, which we incorporated as appropriate.

We are sending copies to the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security and interested congressional committees, and we will make copies available to others who request them. In addition, the report will be available at no charge on GAO’s Web site at

We Republicans maintain that we have a profound respect for the law, but we seem to a;;ow our leaders a wide interpretation of the law when it involves illegal aliens. It is time to demand answers to this bizarre double standard: we have on set of laws for American citizens and another set of laws for illegal aliens. We deserve to have the discrepancy explained and defined; especially, since we are paying for this privileged criminal class.

Although this lunacy has been going on for decades, President Obama and Ms Napolitano own this debacle for the time being. It is now their responsibility to explain or desist in this strange application of American Immigration Law and border enforcement.

    One thing I will say: if the border remains as porous as it is today, and if these guys were not going to be locked up in Mexico (or whichever other place we sent them to), then imprisoning them here *might* be preferable to deporting them, despite the cost. Of course proper border enforcement would allow us to deport them, which is ultimately preferable.

    George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all died and went to Hell.

    While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

    Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

    Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

    Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

    When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.

    The devil smiles and replies, “Since Obama took over, it’s a local call.”

    That statement pertains to those who come to this country illegally, without legal purpose and standing. Those who have visa’s due to work, or with pending citizenship are not included.

    Well, we’ve provided illegal Mexicans with all the things they can’t get in Mexico — health care, education, and jobs. It should be no surprise that they expect us to provide a revolving door for their criminals, too. It’s way past time to put an end to this nonsense, and the first order of business is to secure the border.

    Do you suppose this is why the Democrats are pushing for voting rights for felons? This is a huge demographic of voters for the Democrats to lose. If you can think of a better reason, let’s hear your reasoning.

    Mr. Irons

    The progressive mentality of making a welfare system for the illegal and those who refuse to take care of themselves (parasites), are only building a house made out of rotting wood with the exterior handcraftedly painted to manipulate the population into buying it. The further the legal citizen and resident gets disinfranchised, the more the house’s rotted, and feeble interior is exposed from constant weathering of their plans but when does the Legal Citizen awaken that this scandal of a house is about to collapse inward? And will it collapse before we set foot inside? Their trap is activating due to the decay faster than they desire, and they must sell us this house before it collapses without its intended targets inside.

    @John ryan:

    Please contrast and compare that with the previous administration


    National Data, By Edwin S. Rubenstein
    Deportations Decreasing, NOT Increasing, Under Obama

    (a) From same period of the prior FY. Data source: ICE Removals 2007-2010 Excel Spreadsheet

    In FY2008—George W. Bush’s last full fiscal year—deportations rose a whopping 26.8% from the prior year. But growth slowed to 5.6% in FY2009, the last eight months of which were on Obama’s watch.

    And now the rate of deportations in has actually turned negative. As things stand now, Fiscal 2010, which started on October 1, 2009 and is Obama’s first full year, is on course to be the first since FY2002 in which deportations will have declined.

    And it’s very hard to see how Morton’s blithe estimate of “about 400,000” deportations can be reached.

    In six of the first nine months of FY2010, deportations have declined from the corresponding month of the prior year. The largest decline—16%—occurred in May.

    As of this writing the ICE website provides deportation numbers through July 22, 2010. Prorating the 22 days of July you get a full month total of 19,200 deportations, which is 45% below the 34,819 deportations recorded in July 2009.

    There is a lot of seasonal noise in deportation activity. Deportations seem to spike in summer months and sink in the winter. This is why it is useful to compare monthly deportation activity over the course of a year with that of the same month in the prior year.

    Hmmm. It seems to me that ICE’s functions are being politicized now. The following is an excerpt about an internal ICE memo. It seems to be a pre-emptive strike against AZ’s law that is making it’s way through the court system.

    ICE’s misleadingly-named Office of State and Local Cooperation (OSLC) has announced the next step in the Obama administration’s efforts to drastically diminish the scope of immigration law enforcement. According to a draft policy document now being circulated among a limited group of stakeholders, ICE chief John Morton intends to prohibit not only his officers, but also local officers with 287(g) immigration authority, from busting illegal aliens who are discovered as a result of traffic violations.

    …According to the draft document’s cover e-mail from Ann Yom Steel, a political appointee whose mission seems to be to harass and discourage local agencies who want to help ICE and who want ICE to help them, the agency is responding to the “many concerns [of immigration law enforcement critics] related to immigration detainers, including that they could distort the state criminal process or open the window for pretextual, minor criminal charges.” In other words, ICE believes the ethnic advocacy groups who accuse local cops and sheriffs of abusing their authority by trumping up traffic charges on innocent illegal aliens in order to have them deported. Therefore, all illegal aliens who violate traffic laws will get a free pass from ICE, unless they also happen to have committed other “real” crimes. The policy draft says: “Immigration officers shall not issue a detainer unless an LEA [law enforcement agency] has exercised its independent authority to arrest the alien. Immigration officers shall not issue detainers for aliens who have been temporarily detained by the LEA (i.e. roadside or Terry stops) but not arrested,” although the LEA may hold them without a detainer if ICE is coming right away (don’t hold your breath).
