Texas lawmaker likens sobering statistics to 'worst prison break in American history'

Illegal immigrants in the United States, when they commit crimes, are almost always released shortly afterwards - where, in lieu of returning to their homelands, continue to commit crimes in the U.S. Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith likens this to "the worst prison break in American history."

DHS also included a breakdown of the kinds of offenses -- but did not include the number of offenses per type of crime.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Smith, reacting to a new report on crimes committed by 36,007 criminal immigrants, says that these figures are unacceptable.

"[These releases were] sanctioned by the President and perpetrated by our own immigration officials. These criminal immigrants should have been deported to ensure that they could never commit crimes on U.S. soil. But instead, ICE officials chose not to detain them and instead released them back onto American streets," Smith said in a statement this week.

Starvation doesn't go on vacation --

ICE released 36,007 criminal immigrants who had nearly 88,000 convictions. The report was an internal Department of Homeland Security document, which was obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Breaking down the crimes and number of convictions, included 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions.

Presented in a report earlier this week, ICE prepared the document in response to congressional inquiries seeking additional information about the number of criminal aliens released into the U.S. and the crimes for which they were convicted.

Smith was one of the members of Congress who pressed DHS for these answers. A response from DHS was given to Smith earlier this year explaining that ICE did release 36,007 criminal aliens.

DHS also included a breakdown of the kinds of offenses -- but did not include the number of offenses per type of crime.

"Obama administration officials want the American people to think these individuals were guilty of minor, petty offenses," Smith said. "But the convictions tell a chilling story. Among those released were criminal immigrants convicted of murder, rape, kidnapping, drunk driving, and aggravated assault."

Smith added that immigration reform should be off the table until laws currently on the books are enforced.

"There should be no discussion of reforming our nation's immigration laws until the President enforces the laws currently on the books. The safety of the American people should be the President's top priority. We need a President who follows the law and deports criminal immigrants who violate our laws and endanger our lives."
