CIS has some of the latest figures for amnesty lovers and a taste for what we’re in for with amnesty. And remember these are deportation figures under the most alien-friendly (and we’re not talking Alf) administration in history. It’s a slice of a much more toxic pie.
For fiscal year 2011 the Office of Immigration Statistics reported that there were 188,382 deportations (“removals”) of criminal illegal immigrants (“aliens”). Of these, 23 percent had committed drug-related offenses (manufacturing, distribution, sale, and possession of illegal drugs). Another 23 percent had committed criminal traffic offenses (primarily driving under the influence). The next largest category, at 20 percent, was immigration offenses such as illegal reentry after deportation. The violent crime categories of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses totaled 12 percent. The non-violent crime categories of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled 7 percent. All other categories, including unknown, totaled 15 percent. The deportation of criminal immigrants usually takes place after the completion of any sentences associated with their criminal convictions.
That would be 188,382 illegal aliens who have already been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country.
Even under Obama and with the proliferation of sanctuary cities, we still deported 22,605 illegal aliens responsible for everything from rape to murder. And another 45,000 for drug trafficking.
And that’s the icing on the cake.
Out of the 188,382 criminal aliens deported in 2011, at least 86,699, or 46 percent, had been deported earlier and had illegally returned to the United States. We know this because 86,699 is the number of criminal alien deportations resulting from “reinstatement of final removal orders” (“reinstatement” for short) for 2011
CIS calls this a revolving door system and that’s putting it mildly. We’re re-deporting criminal aliens who were deported and came back and committed other crimes. And these repeat offenders make up almost half of all criminal aliens who had been deported.
