WASHINGTON (AP) A House subcommittee on Wednesday authorized a subpoena against the Homeland Security Department for information about illegal immigrants who have been identified but not deported.
The authorization cleared the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration policy and enforcement by a 7-4, party line vote. Democrats voted against the measure, saying it was premature to issue a subpoena because Homeland Security, which oversees Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is cooperating with the committee.
House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, says the subpoena authorization is necessary because the Obama administration hasn't responded quickly enough to his request, which was made in August. He had set a Monday deadline that the department failed to meet.
"The administration is obviously not acting in good faith," Smith said. "They're on the verge of obstructing the legitimate work of Congress."
Nelson Peacock, an assistant secretary for Homeland Security, said in a letter to Smith Wednesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is working expeditiously to turn over the information the committee has requested but that it will take significant analysis.
"As we have explained, ICE does not track the circumstances of cases where no action is taken," Peacock wrote. But he said the agency is committed to satisfying the committee's request and is working through its records to get as specific a response as possible.

illegals identified but not deported...Big Sis will say “the system worked”.
If they are going for anything less than a “blind naked choke” the committee shouldn’t be touching this.

Do we have an idea of how many illegals were not deported but were said to have been deported in the statistics? Linda Chavez said on Fox and Friends yesterday that we were at near all-time highs of illegal deportations this past year.

I am not sure about how many, I am sure that the Obama administration has lied. I posted a piece earlier with proof that they lied about the numbers and completely full of it.
Here is the article from yesterday.-
‘DHS has artificially inflated its deportation numbers by including figures on voluntary removals’
Deport Homeland Security and especially Big Sis.
Sadly, just this past weekend, a 10-year old hispanic girl was murdered in this area by an ICE-identified illegal from Mexico who had not been deported. He is married to a cousin of the girl’s family.
