Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Report: 4 of 5 Immigrants deported through Criminal Alien Program aren't Criminals

As I have been explaining for years, President Obama is not focused on deporting serious criminals.

From The American Immigration Council:

"Based on government data and documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the report examines CAP’s evolution, operations, and outcomes between fiscal years 2010 and 2013. The data analyzed reveals that the program removed mainly people with no criminal convictions and people who have not been convicted of violent crimes or crimes the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) classifies as serious. During this time period, over 4 out of 5 CAP removals were of individuals with either no conviction or of individuals who have not been convicted of a violent crime or one that the FBI classifies as serious.

Out of more than half a million CAP removals that took place between FY 2010 and FY 2013, ICE classified the largest share (27.4 percent) as not “definite criminals”—i.e., ICE recorded no criminal conviction. The second- and third-most prevalent categories of CAP removals were of individuals whose “most serious” criminal conviction involved a “traffic offense” (20 percent) and “dangerous drugs” (18 percent), followed by “assault” (6 percent) and “immigration” (5 percent)."
