Last year, government claims they deported 43% illegals.
If you remember the memo that Senate has now, the one that suggested ways to go around Congress to give amnesty to illegals, and that the President said was not true, well it true. ICE even said they had no plans to go around the President to give amnesty to illegals.
On an interview with Fox News last week, John Morton, head of ICE, was asked about the memo. He said: “There is no truth to it, it is not from ICE”. He said, “I don’t know where the memo came from, it’s not ours, they don’t reflect what we are about. ”
“If we were for amnesty, ” Morton said, “Look at what we’ve done. We have a record level of removals. If we were truly about amnest, if that were our policy, would we be putting more people into removal proceedings than ever before, we’re removing more criminals than ever levels of deportations? Is that enforcing the law?
My question is obvious: if that were true then why have you, the ICE director, notified prosecutors that those they have captured and are in court waiting for deportation, are told to let them go. And why have you told law authorities Mr. Morton to let illegals go who have been stopped and it’s determined that they are illegal and have not committed a crime? Basically, what they are saying is it’s catch and release program instead of deportation of illegals. How is that enforcing the Law Mr. Morton?
Morton says “It’s all about serious and tough enforcement”. Right, and I can believe that one based on your record? Even your own people don’t support what you are doing. So if it is about serious, tough enforcement, then why do your people have a problem with your policy?
