The Media Will Not Tell the American People the Truth About Illegal Aliens

The Democrats and the liberal media may discount the enormous damage illegal aliens do to American society, but the problem is bigger than ever. A new report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Office of Inspector General (OIG) reveals startling failures during the Obama Administration that allowed 2.2 million deportable aliens to remain on the streets in a “supervised” status.

Amazingly, illegal aliens with criminal convictions accounted for nearly 400,000 of that total. Yet these sort of alarming figures are dismissed by the left and those presenting the evidence are labeled “racists.”

The report was issued by ICE Inspector General (IG) John Roth in early May. It goes into great detail concerning several failures under the previous administration. They had built a tremendous backlog for deportation officers (DO).

The failures listed were varied. They included imbalanced workloads for DOs, unachievable goals, a lack of clear policies and procedures, and insufficient training. In other words, political chaos created by the Obama administration in their determination to make America’s streets more dangerous and unsafe.

It is supposedly the job of ICE deportation officers to deport aliens who are in a detained or non-detained status. However, the report focuses on the struggles by ICE DOs working with the immigration court’s non-detained docket.

The system is thoroughly broken. The non-detained aliens are considered to be under “supervision,” Roth states in his memorandum dated April 13. The report goes on to detail the period where massive numbers of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) began crossing the borders in 2014.

President Trump inherited what has become a political situation caused by the lack of laws being enforced. From sanctuary cities to politicians themselves more concerned with votes than national security. Each and every American should be wary of Washington lawmakers attempting to create mayhem at our southern border for the sake of their own political careers.
