Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Most Recent Statistics Show that 62% of All Federal Criminal Convictions are for Immigration Related Crimes

Rate this Entry

TRAC Reports has issued the following regarding the breakdown of federal criminal convictions for April 2012.  


Here is what they found:



The largest number of convictions of these matters in April 2012 was for "Immigration", accounting for 62.4 percent of convictions. Convictions were also filed for "Drugs-Drug Trafficking" (10.2%), "Drugs-Organized Crime Task Force" ( 4.2%), "Weapons-Operation Triggerlock Major" (3.9%), "Withheld by Govt from TRAC" (3.4%), "Other Criminal Prosecutions" (2.1%). See Figure 2.


The lead investigative agency for convictions in April 2012 was DHS accounting for 69 percent of convictions. Other agencies with substantial numbers of convictions were: FBI (7% ), DEA (7%), ATF (4%), Interior (2%).



TRAC also determined that in April 2012, the two most heavily prosecuted charges are for alleged violations of 8 U.S.C. 1325, "Entry of alien at improper time or place; etc." (66.8%), and 8 U.S.C. 1326, "Reentry of deported alien" (22.8%).


At least for me it is comforting to know that the administration has prioritized the criminal prosecution of immigrants over stopping drugs and weapons crimes. <- Sarcasm.


In other deportation news, the Obama administration's first move on deferred action unsurprisingly was to postpone the stakeholders meeting.  They issued the following announcement:



Dear Stakeholder,


We regret to inform you that we must postpone the engagement on prosecutorial discretion with respect to certain individuals who came to the United States as children scheduled for July 9, 2012 at 4:00 pm Eastern.


We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and will notify you when we have identified a new date for the engagement...


Kind Regards,


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services



Also, it has come to my attention that "immigration" is an issue that is conspicuously absent from Obama's campaign website.


Maybe he is hoping that his 400,000 deportations per year mandate will also disappear from the minds of the immigration reform electorate.


Wishful thinking.

    This is a great book if you are new to Ron Paul and his views or if you are just starting to qsteuion what's going on in this country and how you might be able to change things.I've been a HUGE fan of Ron Paul for about two years now and have read some of his other books and watched hours of him on YouTube so I didn't really learn any new insights to his thoughts.This book gives you quick overviews of his opinions of why it is so important for the future of our country to return to the Constitution.I recommend it to Republicans and Democrats alike and especially people who are Independant. I'm a registered Republican and Ron Paul was THE ONLY candidate worth voting for in the last Presidential Election.I don't agree with all his opinions but I truly believe that his ideas are a great starting point to get our country back on track before it's too late.
