A graph posed by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) shows the continuing decline of deportations of illegal aliens from the interior. Between 2012 nd 2015, the number of these deportations declined by 62 percent. The administration has claimed that it has limited resources to enforce immigration law. But as Sessions notes, allocations for detention and removal rose significantly between 2012 and 2015.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015 released 19,723 criminal aliens it held in custody instead or deporting them. That number included 208 convicted of murder, 900 convicted of sex crimes, and 12,307 for drunk driving. The National Examiner noted that “Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each. . . .” The Obama Administration says that it cuts back on enforcement against most illegal aliens in order to concentrate on deporting criminals who pose a threat to public safety.

A recent study reveals that the children of immigrants designated as refugees receive more in public benefits than native-born American children. Commenting on this disparity, a writer at americanthinker.com observed, “The concept of a civic community has been turned on its head in the United States. No longer do we take care of our own first and then do what we can to help the rest of the world. Along with the idea of actual borders, the idea that we owe our citizens the greatest protection is being tossed aside in practice, if not yet in theory.”

The Townhall website counts twenty times when President Obama said that he didn’t have the legal authority to decree legal status for illegal aliens–which he ended up doing. One example was his statement on July 1, 2010: “[T]here are those … who have argued passionately that we should . . . at least ignore the laws on the books… I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair. . . . This could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration.”

House Republicans reacted strongly against the statement of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen that his agency doesn’t care that illegal aliens are using fraudulent Social Security numbers on tax returns. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) replied to Koskinen,”What I find absolutely outrageous is your suggestion that when it comes to illegal immigrants, the IRS couldn’t really be bothered when it comes to these folks stealing Americans’ Social Security numbers.” Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX) said Koskinen’s statements were “alarming.”

Eighty percent of the unaccompanied minors caught illegally entering the U.S. in recent months have been placed by the Obama administration in the care of other illegals, according to data obtained by the Associated Press.

The case, filed by Texas and 25 other states, challenges President Obama’s 2014 executive order that would have allowed some unauthorized immigrants to apply for temporary work permits and shielded them from deportation. That policy, now on hold due to the court challenge, would allow federal immigration authorities to focus their resources where they are …
