A report by the Department of Homeland Security says that more than 179,000 criminal illegal aliens eligible to be deported are still in the U.S. and immigration officials admit they don’t know where they are.
The report was delivered to the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration. As it turns out, there are nearly a million illegals who have been issued deportation orders who have not been sent home.
“Not serious enough criminals…”? Since the president’s immigration reform plan would have allowed illegals convicted of drunk driving to remain in the country, that’s a pretty good indication they don’t care much if thousands of illegals every year cause traffic accidents while under the influence — some of which result in deaths.
You have to wonder what other offenses that illegals were convicted of aren’t considered “serious.” I’m sure the answer would be interesting.
If someone is slated to be deported, there ought to be some mechanism that can ensure they follow the legal order to leave the country. Instead of allowing illegals to disappear, isn’t there some way to track them while they are appealing? It’s a tough problem but short of halting deportations altogether, at least some effort besides the half-hearted PEP program that can’t work anyway because of the non-cooperation of sanctuary cities should be made.
