Hillary Clinton and the release of thousands of criminal aliens
Powerline blog citing CBS News ^ | May 15, 2014 | Paul Mirengoff

Posted on 05/16/2014 12:02:39 PM PDT by Mount Athos

CBS News reports:

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 36,007 convicted criminal aliens last year who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings, according to a report issued Monday by the Center for Immigration Studies.

The group of released criminals includes those convicted of homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping and aggravated assault, according to the report, which cites a document prepared by the ICE. . . .

According to the report, the 36,007 individuals released represented nearly 88,000 convictions, including:

•193 homicide convictions •426 sexual assault convictions •303 kidnapping convictions •1,075 aggravated assault convictions •1,160 stolen vehicle convictions •9,187 dangerous drug convictions •16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions

In effect, the administration has, as Bill Otis puts it, “unleashed its own crime wave.” But who within the administration was responsible for this for wanton indifference to public safety?

One responsible party is Hillary Clinton. Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies explains why:

The Supreme Court [has] 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.” One of the main reasons such a situation arises is that a criminal alien’s home country will refuse to take its nationals back.

Why would a criminal alien’s home country take the criminal back? Because federal law requires the secretary of state to stop issuing visas to the citizens of any country that refuses to take back its nationals.

Refusing to issue visas to citizens of a foreign country would provide a powerful incentive for that country to take back its nationals and thus create a significant likelihood of removal in the foreseeable future. This, in turn, would enable the U.S. to avoid releasing criminal aliens onto our streets.

But according to Krikorian, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have ignored the law and continued issuing visas to citizens of countries that refuse to take back their citizens. Apparently, they don’t wish to risk alienating these countries. They would rather see dangerous criminals on the loose in the United States.

It’s a strange and irresponsible preference. More than that, it’s an illegal one. 8 U.S.C. Section 1253(d) commands that:

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.

(emphasis added)

In sum, the lawless behavior of the State Department, beginning under Hillary Clinton, has created a threat to public safety in America. That will be worth remembering when criminal aliens released because of the State Department’s unwillingness to follow the law commit grisly crimes in the future.

Hillary Clinton might be a shoe-in for the presidency if only she had done no harm as Secretary of State. Having failed in multiple ways to meet this low standard, she is not a shoe-in.

Not to mention anyone who testified against them. This is a nightmare for victims and the public.

Yes it is.

Did they even deport these illegals or simply let them back on the street?

Every victim of a crime committed by an illegal alien should demand to know if that criminal was released by the Obama executive order. Then sue the snot out of the government for endangering your loved one after the rape, murder or death by DUI that thousands of families suffer each year because these animals are running loose. in our neighborhoods

Frightening stats by themselves, but does the report indicate homicide, assault perps, et al released on bond pending trial, bond absconders, arrests by category.

IIRC the ratio of convictions, especially homicides is very low, something far less than 1:20 crimes.

These would tell true numbers.

Keep in mind the tendency of DA’s plea bargaining to lesser crimes so we’re only seeing the tip of the ice berg.

Who in their right mind would want another Clinton in office ? Clinton is the female version of Obama.Clinton would appoint Michelle Obama as Secretary of State ..
Since Obama has been Prez a lot dept’s have scandals one right after another...
Obama & Clinton both think alike on immigration..Clintion would open the borders wider than Obama already has and grant illegals more rights than what Americans have..I can see Clinton would carry on Blaming Bush..If not for Bush Obama would not of..for 4 years we would hear this over and over

From related link:

...So, why are we still releasing criminals? Have China, Jamaica, and the rest stubbornly defied our cutoff of their visas?

Hardly. What’s actually happened is that nothing’s happened. The State Department has ignored the legal mandate and just keeps on issuing visas in countries that won’t take back their own citizens. Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have decided it’s 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, then–DHS secretary Janet Napolitano admitted at a hearing that she wasn’t aware of the Obama administration ever having complied with this legal requirement

If I accidentally hit one of these released criminals with my car, would I go to jail or would I be “released”? These subhuman LIBs are confusing me with their bizarro rules.

That's SHOO-IN, author!

I hate those gross errors of wording, like "hone in on" ("home in"), "reigning in" for "reining in [you know, like horses?]" and "pouring over the books" for "poring over". Ignorance is ..... ignorance.

I don't get why even the dopiest GOP candidate doesn't use this story.

It has real "juice" that even the LIVs understand.

Your average democrat may not understand or care about voter fraud, or IRS scandals, but they sure as $hit would care about knowing that the DEMOCRATS just released THOUSANDS OF CRIMINALS.

And these criminals will kill and rape...mostly democrats.

That's okay. Just scoop 'em all up and drop them in the middle of Antarctica with one MRE each.

That'll do it!

A thorough investigation needs to happen to find who is at fault for releasing these people and also to find out every crime that these criminals commit from here on out.

Whoever let them free is just as much to blame for the future crimes these people commit as the criminals themselves.

I agree. IMO this is a huge story. (I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more attention)

I'd think even the dumbest voter out there would find this disgusting and unforgivable.

"According to the report, the 36,007 individuals released represented nearly 88,000 convictions"

That fact makes it even more horrifying.

The democrats have unleashed people who have committed MULTIPLE felonies.

And that statistic only reflects those CAUGHT and convicted.

The "real" crime numbers must be staggering.

My prayers for all of us who are forced to live in communities where these monsters have been released.
