And that’s just the numbers since 2010! Are these the dreamers that Obama talks about? Those are definitely some interesting dreams they have.
One-hundred twenty-one illegal aliens with criminal convictions who were released by federal immigration authorities back onto U.S. streets between 2010 and 2014 have been charged with “homicide-related” crimes.
That’s according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which released data in response to a letter sent in February by Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Arizona U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake.
The senators sent the letter after Mexican national Apolinar Altamirano allegedly gunned down Grant Ronnebeck, a Mesa, Ariz. convenience store clerk, over a pack of cigarettes on Jan. 22. ICE released Altamirano in Jan. 2013 on $10,000 bond related to a burglary charge. After his release, Altamirano was accused of threatening a woman, but he remained in the U.S.
In response to Grassley’s and Flake’s letter, Sarah Saldaña, the director of ICE, stated that 33 of the 121 illegal aliens who have been accused of “homicide-related offenses” had been released on bond at the discretion of the Justice Department’s Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) after committing their original crime. Another 24 were released because ICE was unable to obtain approval to deport alien convicts within the 180-day timeframe mandated by federal law.
