Roll Call outlines how the Obama Administration has virtually ceased enforcing our nation’s immigration laws in many respects, giving illegal aliens what amounts to a “virtual amnesty” for illegals as long as they haven’t committed a felony. I can’t say such a turn of events is unexpected from these folks.
The statistics don’t lie. Last year, ICE’s noncriminal illegal immigration arrests during work site enforcement operations declined 68 percent and trickled down to a mere 24 arrests this January. Over the same time period, work site enforcement arrests for criminals also declined by 60 percent to just 20 in the month of January. Similarly, work site enforcement indictments and convictions are down 58 percent and 63 percent respectively over this time frame. Meanwhile, ICE reports that it has 3,800 detention beds that are empty, for the first time in years, although there are about 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States .
Read more here. It’s thoroughly disgusting. Just when there are millions of Americans out of work, the Administration is actually giving illegal aliens caught in workplace enforcement raids visas so they can legally work.
