Newly released figures from the Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) identifies criminal illegal aliens are using the international border as a revolving door, and it demonstrates the fact America’s southern border remains extremely porous.
The report cites approximately 188,380 criminal illegal immigrants, an all-time high, were deported in fiscal year 2011. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact OIS said 86,699 (46 percent) of them were previously deported.
Twenty-three percent of these criminals were guilty of drug-related crimes, followed closely by traffic offences (DUI) at 20 percent. Violent crimes were committed by 12 percent of repeat illegal border crossers and finally about seven percent of criminal aliens committed burglary, larceny or fraud.
