The Obama Administration FREED 169 criminal illegal aliens with homicide-related convictions in 2013 – booked out of detention facilities in 24 different states, according to Sen, Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
Grassley forced Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division to reveal the info in response to concerns based on a CIS report revealing that ICE freed 36,007 aliens with criminal convictions in 2013.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) called that shocking action “the worst prison break in history.” Sen. Grassley demanded ICE release further details, particularly on the 169 criminal aliens with homicide convictions, including the reason for release, the location of release, and the zip code of the alien’s last known address, according to CIS.
The largest number were released in California, according to information provided to Sen. Grassley.. ICE records show that these convicted killers were associated with 96 different cities and towns across America. The city with the largest concentration was Miami, with seven convicted murderers freed by ICE, followed by Los Angeles with six.
First, it must be noted that the original ICE document enumerating the 36,007 releases indicates that the count of criminal aliens with homicide convictions is 193, not 169. It is not clear why ICE did not provide information to Sen. Grassley on all 193 homicide-conviction releases.
ICE does not specify how many, if any, of the homicide convicts have been removed from the country. It states that only 131 have been issued a final order of removal, and that one of the freed convicts was granted voluntary departure. That individual is the only one that ICE says has left the country. Grassley concludes that the rest of the homicide convicts who were freed are still at large somewhere in the United States.
This is just the latest outrage in the destruction of immigration enforcement in the United States by Barack Obama, including a near-total end to deportations for illegal aliens, a 70% reduction in workplace enforcement, the unlawful Obama executive amnesty for 1.4 million DACA illegals, and the Obama-engineered bum rush of tens of thousands of Central American illegals across the border.
The following is a listing of the cities and towns associated with the freed aliens with homicide-related convictions in 2013, which are shown in red on the map. Grassley also provided a list of the detention centers from which the aliens were released, which are shown in blue on the map.
