Team Obama Responsible for 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes

The Obama administration released illegal immigrants who went on to commit more crimes, including charges of 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the House Judiciary Committee said in a report Tuesday.

All told, the nearly 47,000 illegal immigrants the administration was notified of but declined to deport between 2008 and 2011 under its Secure Communities program had a recidivism rate of 16 percent, the committee said.

They were just part of the nearly 160,000 immigrants — most of them here legally — who were flagged by Secure Communities during the three year period but who were either not eligible to be deported or who the administration decided to release. Those immigrants went on to be charged in nearly 60,000 more crimes, according to the committee and the Congressional Research Service, which issued a report on the matter.

The findings stem from the Obama administration’s Secure Communities program, which was designed to identify immigrants who run afoul of the law and who the administration decides it wants to deport.

While hundreds of thousands have been sent back home under the program, 159,286 were not put in deportation proceedings during the period under review, CRS said.

About three quarters of those weren’t eligible for deportation because they were legal immigrants and their criminal records didn’t rise to the level of deportation, though nearly a quarter could have been deported, CRS said.

Those who could have been deported but were released later went on to commit the 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the Judiciary Committee said.

“The Obama administration could have prevented these senseless crimes by enforcing our immigration laws,” committee Chairman Lamar Smith said. “But President Obama continues to further his anti-enforcement agenda while innocent Americans suffer the consequences. His unwillingness to enforce immigration laws puts our communities at risk and costs American lives.”

Mr. Smith requested the CRS report, which used data he had subpoenaed from the Homeland Security Department.

The department didn’t immediately return a request for comment Tuesday morning.

Secure Communities has come under fire from both sides of the aisle.

Many Democrats say it casts its net too wide, which means illegal immigrants who have committed relatively minor offenses could be deported. But Republicans, led by Mr. Smith, say the administration is actually being too picky in those it chooses to deport, which results in criminals being released back onto the streets to commit more crimes.

In one of the cases, the committee said, an illegal immigrant named Evin Adonis Ortiz was identified by Secure Communities but released, and later went on to be charged in the killing of California man. According to the Los Angeles Daily News, police said Ortiz and two others robbed a 68-year-old grandfather and then killed his grandson when he tried to chase the bandits down.

The Obama administration has set records for deportations, removing about 400,000 aliens a year. But it has dramatically altered the composition of those being deported, shifting attention away from rank-and-file illegal immigrants and towards those who already have criminal records or who have repeatedly broken immigration laws.

In June President Obama announced yet another policy that shields most illegal immigrants age 30 and under from deportation. That policy won’t fully take effect until the middle of August, but it has already had an effect on those being deported.

Between Oct. 1 and June 16, a day after the new policy was announced, 51 percent of those ICE deported had criminal records. But in the month after the policy was announced, the percentage of criminals being deported jumped to 57 percent — a record high rate.

    OK, this is only the 5th reply but I'll take the heat and say it anyway.... GW's administration invented the "catch and release" policy of illegals. I don't have time, who's going to dig up the number of murders, attempted murders, and sex crimes committed by the thousands of illegals caught and released during GW's administration?

    And by the way, this falls into my usual rhetoric that anything you say about one politician can be extended to another. And now that we all agree, sho nuf GW did pioneer the catch and release policy, what is the purpose of this thread?

    Obama just stepped up the catch and release policy. I don't agree with it, I was just saying what's good for the goose is also good for the gander. If you're going to count murders by illegals caught and released under Obama, you must also count murders by illegals caught and released under Bush or Clinton or Bush or Reagan or...... Don't you understand anything?


    By the way, Bush ended catch and release in 2006.... and further research shows I was wrong, GW did not pioneer the policy, it was going on when he took office.

    As you can see by the vote tallys below most republicans and all conservatives were and are against our govt side stepping immigration. The only no votes by the democrats for Bush's amnesty bill were because it didnt go far enough.

    Bush Amnesty attempt roll call vote tally in the Senate;

    Voting "yes" were 33 Democrats, 12 Republicans and 1 independent.

    Voting "no" were 15 Democrats, 37 Republicans and 1 independent.

    Granted the GW administration screwed it up too.............but...........is that a reason not to do different now that we know what is wrong?

    More to the point, knowing now what not to do is it not more telling that they are still doing it?

    Wrong.....no matter the team.

    And mind you I'm one of those who would be hard pressed to come up with a solution as I have confused thoughts on it, still the catch and release part is obviously wrong.

    Catch and release is significantly less costly than catch, house, adjudicate, and deport. If we don't catch and release, how do we pay for the costly deportation process? Isn't money ALWAYS the issue? Funny, huh, that only WE could impose so much bureaucracy upon ourselves that we can't afford to keep our borders safe? We think our image to the world is so much more important than American lives, perception really IS everything.

    We need to secure the borders first, I don't care if we have to give up military bases all over the world to pay for it, we need to open new military facilities along the border and patrol our borders with manpower and electronic surveillance. Prevent the crossings first, then deal with catching those still here.
