The Obama Administration has often touted its tough stance on illegal immigration by pointing out the record number of deportations carried out by the administration every year. Despite the record number of deportations, Obama’s enforcement of immigration laws between 2008 and 2011 have not been tough enough. The Washington Times reports :
The Obama administration released illegal immigrants who went on to commit more crimes, including charges of 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the House Judiciary Committee said in a report Tuesday.
All told, the nearly 47,000 illegal immigrants the administration was notified of but declined to deport between 2008 and 2011 under its Secure Communities program had a recidivism rate of 16 percent, the committee said.
