Some 'Immigrants' (Read Illegal Aliens) Are Re-arrested 6 TmesTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
Let's file this under the 'only in America' department of 'incredible but true: Findings by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, based on a sampling of 100 illegal immigrants arrested by local and state authorities in 2004,show that 73 of the 100 immigrants were arrested, collectively, 429 times -- ranging from traffic tickets to weapons and drug charges:
Fine's office said its audit could not conclude precisely how many of the 262,105 illegal immigrants charged with criminal histories that year had been re-arrested. "But if this data is indicative of the full population of 262,105 criminal histories, the rate at which released criminal aliens are re-arrested is extremely high,"...And to think that some of our politicians want us to give these people amnesty and relax our border security!
And then there's that not so little matter of the cost of illegal immigration to the American taxpayer and how long we going to continue to tolerate stealing from Peter to pay Pedro? This, not to mention the fact that Links Between Terrorism, Drug Trade, and Illegal Immigration Can't Be Ignored.
