Illegal immigrants – many of which that have been convicted of crimes such as murder and rape – have somehow avoided being deported under the Obama administration. Over 800,000 of them.
Breitbart’s reporting shows, “While some estimates say there are up to 2 million criminal illegal aliens in the U.S., a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies finds there are at least 820,000 which, as the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard notes, is still larger than the populations of four states: Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont, or Wyoming.
The study finds that as many as 690,000 of the 820,000 have very serious convictions, while the others have lesser crimes to their record.
Bedard also quotes CIS fellow David North who discounts dividing the illegal immigrants into separate categories based on lesser or greater crimes saying, “an illegal alien with a shoplifting record, for example, is an illegal alien who does not belong here in the first place.”
During his last four years in office, the number of illegal immigrants Obama deported plunged from his first term. In fact, during 2015, the number of deportations have cratered even over those of 2014 and measured in at his lowest number thus far in his presidency.”
