While we were all distracted with the election, the Obama administration quietly released a statistic that can only be described as horrifying.
It has just been revealed that last year, Obama’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency decided not to deport 19,723 criminal illegal immigrants and instead released them. According to The Washington Examiner, this group of illegals included 208 convicted murderers, over 900 convicted sex offenders and 12,307 with drunk driving convictions.
The illegals were released into nearly every state, and they had a combined total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each. The ICE reported that the group had been convicted of 8,234 violent crimes.

The ICE went on to brag that they had slashed the number of criminals arrested in local communities.
“In 2015, ICE made 119,772 arrests, or just half the number of arrests made in 2013, 232,287,” said the Center’s Director of Policy Studies, Jessica M. Vaughan.
However, the reason for this decrease was only due to Obama’s immigration policy changes that make it more difficult for police to arrest many criminal immigrants. On Thursday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is having a hearing to discuss the releases.
“Each year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement releases tens of thousands of criminal aliens eligible for deportation,” the committee said in a preview of the hearing. “After release, many go on to commit additional crimes. With new restrictions on immigration enforcement through the president’s executive actions, only narrow classes of removable aliens are priorities for arrest, questioning, detention, or removal. Therefore, millions of removable aliens will be able to remain in the country.”
It’s sickening that Obama is continuing to put illegal immigrants above the safety of the American people. SHARE this story so Americans can be warned of the violent illegals Obama has sent to live among us!
