And before we start, remember we’re only talking about Texas. Just ONE state in our union.
As PJ Media reports, according to analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.
The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws.
The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails:
From October 2008 to April 2014, Texas identified a total 177,588 unique criminal alien defendants booked into Texas county jails. These individuals have been identified through the Secure Communities initiative, in which Texas has participated since October 2008.
Of course that’s not even the ALL the bad news.
PJ Media estimates there are likely to be far more criminal aliens who simply haven’t been identified as aliens because they weren’t fingerprinted prior to arrest, so they’re not included in this report. But they’re still criminals, don’t forget that bit.
So add those thugs in and the numbers are EVEN HIGHER. And that’s just for one state. Just Texas.
Yesterday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldaña about the 104,000 criminals that ICE released in 2013, and the 68,000 criminals against whom ICE refused to start deportation proceedings. Saldaña calls it “good news” that only 30,558 criminal aliens were released by ICE in 2014.
Oh yeah, I’m overjoyed. In fact that news is almost as good as the fact that we’ve signed an awesome deal with Iran! The nation is practically BURSTING with tidings of joy.
But I’d really love to hear the liberal (and RINO) Trump-bashers defend these numbers. Or is this also “unhelpful” to the debate? Yo Jeb Bush, are these the acts of love you were talking about? Because if so, I don’t want any part of it.
