Most sensible people would think it’s crazy, but not everybody is sensible, and that includes our president, Barack Obama. His open-border policy with MexicoÂ already has the earmarks of idiocy.
More than 1,000 illegal immigrants set free under under Obamaâ€™s â€œprosecutorial discretionâ€ continued to commit crimes across the United States, according to Department of Homeland Security records. And that was in just one year.
TheÂ 38-page DHS report lists the new convictions for fiscal 2013, the latest year for which statistics are available. They include:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Terroristic threats
- Failure to register as a sex offender
- Lewd acts with a child under 14
- Aggravated assault
- Criminal street gang
- Rape spouse by force
- Child cruelty: possible injury/death
â€œThe Obama administration claims it is using â€˜prosecutorial discretionâ€™ to prioritize the removal of criminal aliens from this country. But this report shows the disturbing truth: 1,000 undocumented aliens previously convicted of crimes, and released by the administration in 2013, have gone on to commit further crimes in our communities,â€ said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the Watchdog reported.
Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, vowed:Â â€œI will continue my work to ensure our immigration officials are doing what it takes to take criminal aliens off our streets and out of our country.â€ (States oppose executive amnesty.)
Local law enforcementÂ forced to do federal government’s job Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Sheriff Paul Babeu, from Pinal County, Ariz., has told the House Judiciary Committee that as many as Â 30 percent of about 120,000Â illegal aliensÂ apprehended annually at the southwest border around his county have aÂ criminalÂ record in the United States, adding that â€œthe border is not more secure than everâ€ as President Barack Obama has claimed.
He also said it is so lawless in some areas it is like a war-zone on American soil, where â€œlocalÂ law enforcementÂ is leading the effort toÂ fight criminalÂ syndicates from a foreign nation.â€
Babeu said 88,000 and 123,000Â illegal aliensÂ are apprehended each year at the Tuscon Sector, one of nine border patrol zones along the U.S.-Mexico border. Among those illegal aliens, between 17 and 30 percent have aÂ criminalÂ record in the country, Babeu testified.
â€œThis clearly shows that the border is not more secure than ever,â€ he said.
Babeu also said the smuggling and drug running that have become increasingly prevalent in his county. In one day alone, law enforcementÂ officials arrested 78 members of a notorious cartel and seized 108 illegal weapons, all during a single drug bust.
â€œ[These are] not just handguns,â€ Babeu said. â€œThese are scoped rifles and AK-47s, two of which were traced back to the Fast and Furious operation. This is in my county.â€
â€œThis is on American soil. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s so disruptive, is the fact that here, as the sheriff, where our primary job is to answer 9-1-1 calls, how on Earth did we get here to this place that local law enforcementÂ is leading the effort toÂ fightÂ criminalÂ syndicates from a foreign nation on American soil?â€
Learn lesson from Norway where deportations have cut crime Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â If common sense and these statistics arenâ€™t enough, we can take the case of Norway where the Oslo Local News reportsÂ violent crime has decreased by 31Â per centÂ after a record number ofÂ immigrantsÂ were deported byÂ NorwegianÂ authorities.
The National Police Immigration Service of Norway, Politiets Utlendingsenhet, deported a record 824 people in October. The previous record was set in the previous month when 763 people were deported.
The new NorwegianÂ Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, known as â€œIron Erna,â€ began a program that targets and deportsÂ immigrantsÂ who have ties to radical groups or have committed violent crimes while in Norway.Â That also include undocumented aliens.
In 2013, a record number of 5,198 foreign citizens were expelled from the country, an increase of 31% from 2012, when 3,958 people were deported.
The center-right government has predicted 7,100 people will be deported in 2014. At the end of October, PU had so far deported 5,876Â immigrants.
A percentage of those deported in 2014 were asylum seekers who had their applications for continued asylum rejected. They were then deported along with their families.
The majority of deportees, however, had committed crimes or had returned illegally to Norway after already having been deported. Returnees could face prison time.
The moral of the story is when a self-servingÂ elite runs aÂ country, you’ll get more crime.
