According to a 2011 U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report of the 51,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in federal prison in December 2010, 68 percent were citizens of Mexico, and almost 90 percent were from one of seven Latin American countries: Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic.
It’s hard to ignore the fact that illegal aliens only account for 3.5 percent of the U.S. population and yet they accounted for 36.7 percent of federal sentences in fiscal year 2014.
Admittedly, the Obama administration turned the FBI into a political tool but in 20019 before he completely destroyed its integrity, 57 percent of the 76 fugitive murderers most wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) were foreign-born (either illegal aliens or aliens given visas).
Six times more U.S. residents are U.S.-born than foreign-born yet foreign-born residents are responsible for four-times more terrorism convictions. Or, put another way, 13.5% of the population is responsible for 64% of terrorism convictions.
But, these statistics still fail to tell the whole story because the children of aliens who are born here and who commit crimes are considered native born Americans when compiling these statistics.
The man charged with fighting back the wave of illegal aliens that are bankrupting our hospitals, school systems, social welfare programs, police and fire departments, and prison systems, is Thomas Homan, Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Homan ‘s plan is to go after the politicians who are acting in defiance of existing federal law 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens that specifically gives the men and women who work under him, and designated by the Attorney General of the United States, the authority to arrest anyone (there is no exception provided in the law for politicians) who violates this statute.
This brings us to California’s Governor Jerry Brown and Homan’s plan to deal with him. Homan discussed it during an appearance on Fox News with Neil Cavuto earlier this week:
“The state of California wants to put politics ahead of public safety and ahead of officer’s safety. [Editor’s note: Based on the GAO’s sample of criminal aliens, they estimated that their study population of 249,000 criminal aliens was arrested about 1.7 million times, averaging about 7 arrests per criminal alien.] When you release a public safety threat back into the public it’s just a foolish decision.”
If he (Jerry Brown) thinks he’s protecting the immigrant community he’s doing quite the opposite. If he thinks ICE is going away, we’re not! There’s no sanctuary from federal law enforcement. As a matter of fact we’re going to significantly increase our enforcement presence in California.
“California better hold on tight. If the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities then ICE will.”
“We got to work with the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice needs to do a couple things. Number one, they need to file charges against the sanctuary cities. Number two, they need to hold back their funding. Another thing they need to do, they need to hold these politicians personally accountable. I mean, more citizens are going to die because of these policies and these politicians can’t make these decisions and be held unaccountable for people dying. I mean, we need to hold these politicians accountable for their actions.”
Cavuto asked Homan whether President Trump shared his views.
HOMAN: The president is totally against sanctuary cities. He knows, as well as I do that people are dying, people are being victimized by illegal aliens in this country and there are certain sanctuary cities that don’t want to cooperate with us. Look, this is about the American public. This is about the U.S. citizens being victimized by some of these criminal illegal aliens. We’ve got to hold sanctuary cities accountable. This is going to continue. The crime rate in California is going to increase.
At least 50 percent of these criminal aliens being released back into the public re-offend the first year. Seventy-five percent will re-offend in 5 years. This is a victimization of the American community. This isn’t the America I grew up in. We’ve got to take these sanctuary cities on. We’ve got to take them to court and start charging some of these politicians with crimes.
Brown, and politicians like him have been driving hardworking taxpayers from their cities and states with high taxes and burgeoning crime and they need to replace the lost headcount or lose seats in Congress and the power that comes with the total number of residents not citizens. Essentially, these liberal politicians are using lax immigration enforcement to increase foreign representation in every level of government.
Governor Brown’s order has made illegal aliens – even criminal illegal aliens – a protected class as California Assemblyman Travis Allen discusses with Tucker Carlson in the following video:
Brown is following in the footsteps of an earlier Democrat, Alabama Governor George Wallace, who also refused to protect the citizens of his state – that time because of the color of their skin.
Governor Brown is tempting fate. ICE Director Homan has the president’s backing and nothing would send a louder message to the mayors of sanctuary cities than the biggest fish of all winding up behind bars.
