SENATE GOP TAKES ON SANCTUARY CITIES: The Senate Judiciary Committee is having a hearing on the negative effects of cities using "sanctuary" policies...
Up to 80 percent of criminal illegal aliens who are released by sanctuary jurisdictions across the United States will commit additional crimes and victimize more Americans, federal immigration data reveals.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official Timothy Robbins said that anywhere between 40 to 80 percent of criminal illegal aliens who are released by sanctuary jurisdictions go on to commit more crime.
“When aliens walk out the front of the jail that could have been handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings, they have the opportunity to commit additional crimes,” Robbins said. “What we’ve seen, and depending on the report you look at, anywhere from 40 to 80 percent of those who have committed crimes will re-offend.”
“In that regard, what we’re seeing is crimes that could be preventable, the human cost who are being victimized and hurt by criminal aliens that ICE had the ability to remove from this country,” Robbins said.
The data indicates that up to 80 percent of crimes committed be sanctuary-freed illegal aliens could have been prevented if those suspects had been turned over to ICE for arrest and deportation.
