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.
