Via NewsBusters:

In FY 2013:

ICEwide

- ICE conducted a total of 368,644 removals.

- ICE conducted 133,551 removals of individuals apprehended in the interior of the U.S.
-- 82 percent of all interior removals had been previously convicted of a crime.

- ICE conducted 235,093 removals of individuals apprehended along our borders while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S.

- 59 percent of all ICE removals, a total of 216,810, had been previously convicted of a crime.
-- ICE apprehended and removed 110,115 criminals removed from the interior of the U.S.
-- ICE removed 106,695 criminals apprehended at the border while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S.

- 98 percent of all ICE FY 2013 removals, a total of 360,313, met one or more of ICE's stated civil immigration enforcement priorities.

- Of the 151,834 removals of individuals without a criminal conviction, 84 percent, or 128,398, were apprehended at the border while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S. and 95 percent fell within one of ICE's stated immigration enforcement priorities.

And we're suppose to feel all warm and fuzzy about giving illegals a 'path to citizenship'?

I'm thinking perhaps there needs to be a significant vetting process in place first ... and yes, a much more secure border than what we have now - and a president that doesn't allow border patrol agents to enforce the law and make arrests.
