Obama administration failed to deport arrested illegal immigrants who went onto to commit 19 murders and 142 sex crimes
Daily Mail: Illegal immigrants arrested and then released were responsible for 19 murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes during the first three years of President Obama’s administration.
The findings, which were published by the House Judiciary Committee, found that 36,000 illegal immigrants arrested on other charges between 2008 and 2011 failed to be deported by the President and his team.
The study discovered that one in six illegal immigrants is re-arrested on criminal charges within three years of release and House Republicans have condemned what they see as a ‘dangerous and deadly’ immigration policy.
President Obama and his administration were aware of 159,286 immigrants who had committed crimes and been arrested and declined to deport more than 36,000 of them who were here illegally. Although three-quarters of the almost 160,000 people were not eligible for deportation because they were legal, the rest could have been deported.
Those who could have been deported but were instead released back into the community, went onto commit 19 murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes said the House Judiciary Committee which produced the report along with the Congressional Research Service.
‘The Obama administration could have prevented these senseless crimes by enforcing our immigration laws,’ said committee Chairman Lamar Smith. ’But President Obama continues to further his anti-enforcement agenda while innocent Americans suffer the consequences. ‘His unwillingness to enforce immigration laws puts our communities at risk and costs American lives.’
In addition to the serious violent and sexual crimes committed by the 159,286 immigrants, there were nearly 8,500 drunken-driving offences and 6,000 drug related violations.
The findings were compiled after records were subpoenaed last year after concerns that President Obama’s administration was neglecting its immigration policy, allowing, ‘potentially millions of illegal and criminal immigrants to avoid current immigration law,’ said the Republican led House committee. The Department of Homeland Security could not be reached for any comment on the figures.
The Committee members cited the case of 24-year-old Danilo Morales, who was allegedly killed by 22-year-old Evan Adonis Ortiz and 29-year-old Rene Ubaldo Ramirez. Ramirez is an illegal immigrant who has twice been deported from the USA who was flagged by Secure Communities for a June 2010 vehicle theft and then arrested five months later for attempted grand theft.
Six months after that he was arrested for the murder of Danilo Morales, who was coming to the aid of his 68-year-old grandson, who was being robbed by 27-year-old Edwin Alexander Bonilla and 22-year-old Evan Adonis Ortiz. ‘While this illegal immigrant should have been detained and deported, he was not considered a priority under the Obama administration’s reckless immigration policy and was released onto our streets,’ the committee concluded.
Another case that concerned the committee was that of Carlos Montano, an illegal immigrant who allegedly caused a car crash while driving under the influence that killed a nun, Sister Denise Mosie in August of 2010. Prior to the accident, Montano had been arrested twice before on drunk driving charges but had not been deported.

I feel bad for the families of these victims and crimes. How infuriating to know that these crimes could have been avoided if the illegals were simply deported.
