Federal immigration authorities last year released 19,723 criminal illegal aliens back onto U.S. streets who have been convicted of 64,197 crimes — including 208 homicides.
That’s according to data that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) provided to Congress this week ahead of a House Oversight Committee hearing scheduled for Thursday.
The number of criminal aliens released from ICE custody is down from previous years, though apprehensions of illegal aliens in general have also fallen during the Obama regime.
In 2013, more than 36,000 criminal illegal aliens with convictions for more than 88,000 crimes were released from custody. In 2014, more than 30,000 were released.
