Illegal Aliens Have 1 In 6 Recidivism Rate

From Fox News:

Illegal immigrants often returning to jail after release, study shows

Tuesday July 31, 2012

Roughly one in six illegal immigrants is re-arrested on criminal charges within three years of release, according to new government data being released Tuesday.

The findings, obtained by Fox News, are contained in reports by the Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee and nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. They are the result of the committee’s subpoena request for Department of Homeland Security records from October 2008 to July 2011.

The information was analyzed by the CRS, which also broke down the information for criminal immigrants — legal immigrants who committed crimes and were arrested again over the three-year period. Together, the two groups also had a roughly one-in-six recidivism rate.

The records show 276,412 reported charges against illegal and criminal immigrants over that three-year period as identified by Secure Communities, a federal program that essentially attempts to make best use of resources by identifying and prioritizing which illegal immigrants pose the biggest threat to public safety and should be arrested or deported.

Of the 160,000 people in the database, more than 26,000 were re-arrested — accounting for nearly 58,000 crimes and violations.

They allegedly committed nearly 8,500 drunken-driving offenses and more than 6,000 drug-related violations. The records also show major criminal offenses, which included murder, battery, rape, kidnapping and nearly 3,000 thefts. Roughly 2 percent of the crimes included carjacking, child molestation, lynching and torture, according to the 13-page Congressional Research Service report

The report showed that more than 7,000 of those re-arrested were illegal immigrants. Among their charges were 19 murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes…

But bear in mind, under Obama these criminals might actually be deported if they are convicted of a major felony.

The records were subpoenaed last year in large part over concerns that Obama administration changes to Secure Communities was allowing “potentially millions of illegal and criminal immigrants to avoid current immigration law,” according to the GOP-led House committee…

Committee members cited one case in which an illegal immigrant was flagged by Secure Communities for a June 2010 vehicle theft and then arrested five months later for attempted grand theft.

He was then arrested roughly six months later in connection with murder. He and two other men allegedly attempted to rob a 68-year-old man. When the victim’s grandson intervened, the illegal immigrant allegedly shot and killed the grandson, according to the committee.

“While this illegal immigrant should have been detained and deported, he was not considered a priority under the Obama administration’s reckless immigration policy and was released onto our streets,” the committee concluded.

So if this illegal alien had been deported after his first crime, entering the US illegally, or even his second crime, car theft, the grandson would still be alive today.

But the Democrats are trying to buy the Hispanic vote by allowing more criminals to stay in our country. And who cares what it costs in human lives and suffering?

  1. Right of the People

    Already under federal law, which Janet the Lame Napolitano Secretary of the DHS refuses to enforce, the second time a person enters the country illegally it is a felony. If we would just enforce the laws already on the books like with a lot of other things we could cut down on crime significantly.

    Something is going to have to be done to solve the problem of illegals and soon or this country is going to go down the crapper. Of course getting the illegal alien out of the White House is a good first step.

    I don’t fault illegal aliens. Illegals gonna be illegal.

    But I do hold accountable the men and women of the Federal Government of the United States of America for treason, intentionally engaging in criminal acts against this nation by not enforcing laws on the books.

    If that doesn’t define aid and comfort to enemy, I cannot imagine what does.

    (oh, well, there’s Bill Clinton selling nuclear secrets to the Communists of Red China, but no Republican stood up and called him on it, so who am I?)
