It was learned recently that in 2013 the Obama administration released thousands of criminal aliens into America’s vulnerable colonies of other aliens. Understandably Republicans are livid.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), one of the most important Republicans on the immigration issue, expressed outrage about the Department of Homeland Security releasing thousands of criminal aliens from detention. Now he’s planning to bring DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson before his committee for answers.
The House Judiciary Committee expecting to Johnson before the committee about the 36,007 criminal aliens ICE released last year later this month, a committee aide told Breitbart News.
Monday, the Center for Immigration Studies released a report detailing an internal ICE document which showed that 36,007 immigrants convicted of nearly 88,000 crimes were released back into the United States last year.
Some of whom are almost certain to win a collegiate debate championship in the next academic year. But the primary concern is that all of these violent aliens are being released into America illegally.
And for that Republicans have a formidable solution: Legalization!
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who has his eye on the GOP presidential nomination and was the central figure who backed the Senate’s amnesty bill that passed last year, said that Republicans in the Senate would “absolutely” take up amnesty legislation again if they gain a net of six seats to take back the upper chamber. He indicated that piecemeal or bite-sized bills would be better than his Gang of Eight amnesty bill that he championed and which faced stiff resistance from House conservatives.
If Republicans retain the House, that would mean GOP leaders like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who would become Majority Leader, and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) may promptly abandon the conservative base to strike a deal on amnesty legislation.
Rubio conceded that he did not “think a comprehensive bill can pass,” but emphasized that he did not “want us to waste another two years on an approach that has no chance of passing.”
“I certainly think we can make progress on immigration, particularly on topics like modernizing our legal immigration system [and] improving our mechanisms for enforcing the law, and I think if you did those things you could actually make some progress on addressing those who are illegally,” Rubio said on Wednesday, according to The Hill.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who would be Chairman of the Judiciary Committee if the GOP takes back the Senate, and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who would become Majority Whip, also agreed. “We’d start over again next year,” Grassley, who said he supported the amnesty provisions in the Senate bill but not the lax border security measures, told The Hill. “I’d make a decision about whether you could get more done by separate bills or a comprehensive bill.”
And this is why conservatives vote for republicans: to address national emergencies like rampant illegal immigration. And once all immigration has become legal…They will have done so.
