Pretty wily over there at the DHS. They have FOX news all up in arms about the release of a few thousand illegal aliens. The fact of the matter is, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. ICE is releasing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and that is being ignored by the media completely.
The latest scandal to rock the dysfunctional DHS caught the attention of the media when the White House conceded that a few hundred low-risk illegal aliens were being released, ostensibly due to the devastating sequester cuts. Internal budget documents revealed that the numbers were closer to two thousand in recents weeks with more releases to come.
Three strikes and you’re out. The few hundred number was a straight out lie from mouth of Jay Carney. When the White House expressed shock and amazement that it was actually more than two thousand, that surprise was a lie as well. I reported the real numbers back in 2011. According to Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) the DHS is releasing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens with actual deportations at an embarrassingly low level.
Of 447,731 illegal aliens apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol during fiscal year 2010 (which ended last September), only 73,263 (16.4 percent) were prosecuted, according to the submitted data. That means that 374,468 illegal aliens that were taken into custody (83.6 percent) were never prosecuted.
Keep in mind ICE claims to have room for a little over 30,000 detainees. Let’s do the math. If the Border Patrol catches over 447,000, only 73,000+ are prosecuted, what happened to the nearly 400,000 other detainees?
They let them go. They don’t have them, they didn’t prosecute them-they let them go. And don’t be surprised if those folks got a ballot and a little pep talk going out the door. Hundreds of thousands yet the Obama regime has successfully shifted the focus to these few thousand over the last couple of weeks.
You might be asking why the Republicans don’t investigate this. Where’s Issa? Where’s the IG? Well, it was investigated and Culberson came up with the numbers. But with Republicans in full pandering mode now, absolutely nothing will be done.
Couple all this with the Obama defacto amnesties, the illegal aliens that are just shooed back across the border without ever being apprehended, and the ones that never get caught. According to the Border Patrol 2 out of 3 make it in. Multiply that by a few decades of open borders and now you see why the Republicans are pandering. We’re swamped, and with the high birthrates of the illegal aliens coming across…that pretty much wraps it up for the United States.
