Catch-and-Release Aliens' Crime Wave

Obama's "prioritization" is about his own political benefit.

Kathryn Steinle, the San Francisco woman who was murdered by an already-deported illegal alien last year, isn’t the only victim of Barack Obama’s foolish immigration policies. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, “The criminal aliens released by ICE [since 2010] — who had already been convicted of thousands of crimes — are responsible for a significant crime spree in American communities, including 124 aliens charged with 135 new homicides. Inexplicably, ICE is choosing to release some criminal aliens multiple times. … There is a human cost to the Obama administration’s careless catch and release policies for criminal aliens, euphemistically known as ‘prioritization’.” A human cost indeed — these aliens sometimes commit other crimes as well. Mark Krikorian notes, “The Judiciary Committee also asked about criminal aliens released by ICE more than once. Since 2013, there have been 156 such criminal aliens, who racked up between them a total of 243 additional convictions after being let go. None of these statistics include criminal aliens released by sanctuary cities or those whom ICE simply refused to pick up from local jails in the first place. These are only those who were in ICE’s hands, and then let go.”

In short, Obama’s “prioritization” is about his political benefit, not the security of the country or the American people. But that’s not exactly a surprise, either, is it?
