During fiscal year 2014, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released 30,558 aliens convicted of crimes back into America’s communities, according to a report released on March 18 of this year. This followed the release of 36,007 criminal aliens in FY 2013.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the agency charged with detention and removal of illegal aliens, said that “overcrowding” was the main reason dangerous criminal aliens have been released from custody. New ICE director Sarah Saldana told reporters the number of foreign criminals released by the Obama Administration “still concerns me.” She went on to claim that, “I am determined to continue to take every possible measure to ensure the public’s safety and the removal of dangerous criminals” while defending the Obama Administration’s policy of releasing, not jailing or deporting, criminal aliens.

ICE did not release a breakdown of criminal offenses committed by the new class of over 30,000 released criminals. Among the 36,000 released in 2013 were aliens convicted of murder, sexual assaults, kidnapping, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Is there any doubt that this administration is at war with America’s citizenry?
