Senate Letter Reveals Staggering Number Of Murders By Illegal Aliens With Previous Criminal Convictions

Tyler Durden's picture

A letter written by the Senate Judiciary Committee in June 2015 to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, Secretary of State John Kerry and Attorney General Loretta Lynch reveals news facts about the number and nature of crimes committed by illegal immigrants who had already been convicted of other crimes but were released back into the public either because their home country would not accept their deportation and/or because they exceeded a Supreme Court mandate prohibiting detention of deportable foreign nationals beyond six months. 

According to the letter, published by the Miami Herald, statistics provided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirm that 121 homicides were committed in the U.S. between 2010-2014 by illegal immigrants who had already been convicted of a crime but were released back into society due to limitations on their detention.  In addition, ICE confirmed that of the 36,007 criminal aliens released from custody in 2013, 1,000 of them had already been convicted of new crimes as of June 2015.

“This disturbing fact follows ICE’s admission that, of the 36,007 criminal aliens it released from ICE custody in Fiscal Year 2013, 1,000 have been re-convicted of additional crimes in the short time since their release,” according to the letter, dated June 12, 2015.


The Senate Judiciary Committee letter revealed that 121 immigrant convicts were charged with homicide following their release from ICE custody between 2010 and 2014. It also noted that in 2014, ICE released 2,457 immigrant convicts because of the Supreme Court ruling prohibiting detention of deportable foreign nationals beyond six months.


Most of these immigrant convicts are nationals of 23 countries described by ICE as “recalcitrant” because they routinely refuse to take back deportables. The bulk of these immigrant convicts in 2014 — 1,183 — were from Cuba, according to the letter. The other “recalcitrant” countries include Afghanistan, Algeria, China, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Zimbabwe, according to ICE.


A committee spokeswoman did not provide additional information on the letter when contacted by el Nuevo Herald last week.


But in response to the letter, Sarah Saldaña, then-director of ICE, stated that 33 of the 121 immigrant convicts accused of “homicide-related offenses” had been released on bond at the discretion of immigration courts. Another 24 were released because ICE was unable to obtain approval to deport them to their countries within the 180-day deadline set by the Supreme Court in 2001.

Of course, throughout the campaign cycle Trump was very clear about his intentions to deport the ~2 million illegal aliens currently residing the country with criminal convictions on their records. 


One weapon Trump has suggested he could wield to compel countries to take back their deportable nationals is halting the issuance of visas to visitors and immigrants from those nations.  While this has yet to happen, and would almost certainly result in additional legal challenges from the Left, it is certainly easy to imagine a scenario in which additional non-compliant countries could simply be added to his existing temporary immigration ban.

In a speech in Phoenix during the campaign, Trump vowed to deport immigrant criminals regardless of whether their countries agreed to take them back.

"There are at least 23 countries that refuse to take their people back after they’ve been ordered to leave the United States,” Trump said. “Including large numbers of violent criminals. They won’t take them back. So we say, ‘Okay, we’ll keep them.’ Not going to happen with me, not going to happen with me.”

Of course, Trump's appearances with the families of victims murdered at the hands of illegal immigrants was a common occurrence on the campaign trail.

In his Phoenix immigration speech Aug. 31, Trump recalled the case of 21-year-old Sarah Root of Des Moines, Iowa, whose death in January 2016 was blamed on an undocumented immigrant who had been released after having been in custody despite being in the country illegally and having failed to show up in court for prior alleged crimes. Eswin Mejía, a Honduran, was charged in connection with Root’s death in a vehicle crash, was freed on bail and fled.


Trump also cited the case of Grant Ronnebeck, a 21-year-old convenience store clerk from Mesa, Arizona, whose murder was also blamed on an undocumented immigrant who had been previously convicted of burglary and had been released from federal custody.


Ronnebeck was killed allegedly over a pack of cigarettes in January 2015, and the murder was linked to Apolinar Altamirano, a Mexican national who was in deportation proceedings but who had been released on bond by an immigration court judge.


A third case Trump mentioned was that of Kate Steinle, gunned down in San Francisco by an undocumented Mexican, Juan Francisco López Sánchez, who had been deported five times previously but had managed to cross the border again undetected.


ICE officials have told Congress that they tried to prevent López Sánchez from bonding out of jail but failed to do so because authorities in San Francisco, a so-called “sanctuary city,” ignored an immigration detainer for the defendant.

Not surprisingly, and despite the damning data provided by ICE officials, Obama's former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told the Senate Judiciary Committee in April 2015 that he did not believe visa sanctions against recalcitrant countries was the right policy, saying "I don’t necessarily believe that we ought to suspend immigration, travel from any of these countries because of this particular issue."

Somehow we suspect the Trump administration disagrees with the former DHS Secretary on the seriousness of this "particular issue."

Just deport them by air dropping them with a hunting knife, winter survival suit, small tent and a few cans of beans directly over the South Pole.

Antarctica can’t refuse to take them.

Then they will have to deal just with themselves and God.

...and further fucking more, let's look at these numbers...

Operation Reclaim and Rebuild was widely successful in its endeavor with 28 commercially, sexually-exploited children and 27 adult victims being recovered; 142 males arrested for the charge of Solicitation; and 36 males arrested for pimping.  In total, 474 arrests were made.

142 Johns + 36 pimps = 178, subtracted from 474...WTF are the remaining 296 that were arrested? Any ideas?

Yes, the Matrix of some Space Aliens will keep his memories and personality in a special and exceptional place. Just like it will keep yours, if worthy of storage space. 

This scenario seems far more likely than that, which was concocted by ancient, smelly and semi-literate shamans/priests, whose sun-baked fears and fantasies have been programmed into the brains of billions of children, for too many centuries.

Go to the YouTubes of Bill Clinton's 1995 State of the Union address to Congress where he says he wants to double deportations and got a standing ovation.

Of course now that a Republican wants to do the same thing this is facist, racist, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.

But Bill was dubbed "The First 'Black' President" by his fawning black fans back in the day, remember?  (LOL! Poor suckers....)

If those countries refuse to take back their crimnal invaders, cut off ties, foreign aid, and trade with them and seize their assets. 

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

No need to. Simply refuse them travel visas, or impose them if no visa requirements exist.

We ante up and Call.

Anyone think we are doing a great job on immigration?

Sorry I don't know how much USA claims without audits to support Immigration and Refugees.

Jekyll Island Treaty (1910)
The London Treaty (1920)
The Second Plan of the Experts (1929)
The Hague Agreement (1930)

The Washington Panel (1998)
The Treaty for Respecting the Rights (2003)

$3.3 Billion + $6.4 + $3.4 + $1.28 = $14.28 Billion per year, Direct federal funding of Immigrants... as far as I know now... these are line items to confuse any reporting and understanding.

Is US Federal Funding of Immigration and movement of Refugees important if it is like 3 Agencies involved as per funding?
- State Department
- International Assistance
- Homeland Assistance
- Education Department with language programs
- HHS Department with Enforcement of Payments or domestic Assistance

2014 Total HHS Outlays - Refugee and Entrant Assistance = $1.28 Billion
2014 HHS Child Care Entitlement to States outlays = $2.839 Billion
2014 Total DOE Outlays - Office of English Language Acquisition = $736 Million

$3.3 Billion + $6.4 + $3.4 + $1.28 + 1.28 + .736 = $16.4 Billion per year

Well maybe that is all the line Items I know Today!

Jews are everyone's enemy:


No... Parasitical behavior is everyones enemy:


New World Order and the Kahal


"The possessions of the goyim are like an ownerless desert, and everybody [every Jew] who seizes it, has acquired it." - Babylonian Talmud, IV/3/54b
"Our goal is to gradually absorb the wealth of the world." - Cecil Rhodes, a Freemason.
In the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" (17) this passage occurs:  "Even now our brothers are under obligation to denounce apostates of their own family or any person known to be opposed to the Kahal. When our kingdom comes, it will be necessary for all subjects to serve the state in a similar manner." Is the Jewish "Kahal" the Modern "Soviet"? 'The International Jew', Chapter 15.   

"The word Kahal is Kehillah in Hebrew. It is the local branch of the Sanhedrin in every community where Jews live, through which they are controlled without their knowledge. "  Henry Klein, A Jew Exposes the World Jewish Conspiracy, p. 7
