It’s one thing to let the illegals in; it’s another to keep the illegal criminals.

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are pushing the Department of Homeland Security for more information about the thousands of criminal aliens that the agency has captured and released back into the United States.

The members’ request come on the heels of a report, based on internal data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, that found ICE charged only 195,000, or 25 percent, out of 722,000 potentially deportable aliens they encountered.

Further, the report, from the conservative Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), revealed that ICE released convicted criminal aliens 68,000 times in 2013.
