Deportation of criminals up
President Obama said in a speech recently in El Paso that “We increased the removal of criminals by 70 percent.” He was referring to the nearly 200,000 aliens who were here illegally and were deported only after they were convicted of serious crimes.
What about the criminals who are still here illegally, who have not be caught and convicted of serious crimes?
What about the citizens of this country who were victimized by these illegal aliens?
Wouldn’t it be more cost-effective and better use of law enforcement to keep these hundreds of thousands (millions) of illegal aliens out of our country in the first place?
Mr. President, tell us instead about the decrease in number of crimes committed by illegal aliens, not the increase in numbers who were caught, convicted and deported.
