Skip to comments.Is Hillary Responsible for Releasing Criminal Aliens?
Posted on 05/14/2014 3:32:34 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
In response to my colleague Jessica Vaughans revelation that an ICE Document Details 36,000 Criminal Alien Releases in 2013, the Obama administration said that many of the releases were mandated by a Supreme Court ruling from 2001. A spokesperson for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told Breitbart News that mandatory releases accounted for over 75 percent of the homicides listed (of which there were 193 meaning that ICE chose to release only about 40 of the foreigners with homicide convictions). For all the criminal alien releases, Vaughans report estimates that about 8 percent fell in this category, or close to 3,000 people.
The Supreme Court case cited is Zadvydas v. Davis, which held that the federal government can detain aliens for deportation up to six months but generally must release the alien into the United States after that point if there is no significant likelihood of removal in the reasonably foreseeable future.

Hillary? Ultimately, the responsibility goes through Holder as implementor for Obama/Jarrett.
So, why are we still releasing criminals? Have China, Jamaica, and the rest stubbornly defied our cutoff of their visas?
Hardly. Whats actually happened is that nothings happened. The State Department has ignored the legal mandate and just keeps on issuing visas in countries that wont take back their own citizens. Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have decided its better for ICE to release criminal aliens into American communities even at the risk of their committing further crimes than to risk upsetting relations by halting the issuance of visas, as required by law. Back in 2011, thenDHS secretary Janet Napolitano admitted at a hearing that she wasnt aware of the Obama administration ever having complied with this legal requirement.
Specifically, the law states:
On being notified by the [DHS Secretary] that the government of a foreign country denies or unreasonably delays accepting an alien who is a citizen, subject, national, or resident of that country after the [DHS Secretary] asks whether the government will accept the alien under this section, the Secretary of State shall order consular officers in that foreign country to discontinue granting immigrant visas or nonimmigrant visas, or both, to citizens, subjects, nationals, and residents of that country until the [DHS Secretary] notifies the Secretary that the country has accepted the alien. [8 U.S.C. § 1253(d); emphasis added]
HILLARY CLINTON PARODY: Try to Remember
Not if you factor in the fact that probably half of Obama's admin are Clinton holdovers/followers.
Re Post 3:
That’s very interesting material. You’re saying that if the SOS (Hil) followed the law, she would pressure other countries to control their citizens by threatening to cut off legitimate visas.
That’s fascinating, and it’s typical of Dems following only the laws they like, but I don’t think it’s the primary driver of our illegal problem. By that, I mean that if ICE and DOJ did their mandated jobs, the borders would be secure and violators prosecuted.
I guess it’s a supply/demand slide argument!
