There’s a fascinating article in The Washington Times this week. And here’s how it starts:
“Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers and thousands of drunken drivers back into the U.S. in 2013, according to Obama administration statistics that could undercut the president’s argument that he is trying to focus on the most serious criminals in his immigration enforcement.
“Among the 36,000 immigrants whom U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released from custody last year there were 116 with convictions for homicide, 43 for negligent manslaughter, 14 for voluntary manslaughter and one with a conviction classified by ICE as ‘homicide-willful kill-public official-gun.’
“The immigrants were in deportation proceedings, meaning ICE was trying to remove them from the country and could have held them in detention but released them anyway, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which published the numbers Monday. The Washington Times also obtained the data.”
And then it runs this quote:
“‘This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials,’ said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican. ‘The administration’s actions are outrageous. They willfully and knowingly put the interests of criminal immigrants before the safety and security of the American people.’”
But don’t worry too much, Lamar Smith. Those criminals were doubtlessly just acting out because of unfair, unjust decisions on the part of racist lawmakers and their racist constituents.
I mean, duh.
As soon as we pass amnesty and give them a completely free, completely unearned ticket to U.S. citizenship, I’m sure they’ll transform into peace-loving, law-abiding individuals who fit right into the current culture we’re so set on encouraging.
