Fox Uses Misleading Report From Anti-Immigrant Group To Stoke Fears Of Violent Undocumented Immigrants
American Immigration Council: "New Report from Center for Immigration Studies on Deportation Data Misleads and Misinforms."
The American Immigration Council's executive Director, Benjamin Johnson, denounced the CIS report in a March 31 press release:
A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) makes a range of false claims about deportation data. First their claim that out of 722,000 "potentially deportable aliens" encountered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement only 195,000 were charged is completely misleading. As a result of dragnet programs like Secure Communities, any foreign-born individual that that comes into contact with law-enforcement likely falls into 722,000 number cited by CIS. Thus, this number includes immigrants (including long time permanent residents) whose interaction with law enforcement was so minor that they are not even legally subject to removal. In fact, that data likely includes U.S. citizens as well. [...]
Furthermore, the report claims ICE "released" 68,000 "criminal aliens" yet fails to explain that being released is not the equivalent of being set-free. Being released from ICE custody often means being issued a notice to appear in court, released with an ankle bracelet or released under an order of supervision. These details were conveniently left out of the CIS analysis.
Understanding deportation data is important in the current debate over immigration reform. However, reports full of false and misleading data do nothing to move the discussion forward and pave the way for further polarization and inaction. [American Immigration Council, 3/31/14]Bipartisan Policy Center: Deportations Of Undocumented Immigrants With Criminal Records Have Nearly Doubled.
A March 13 issue brief released by the Bipartisan Policy Institute reported that "since 2008, the share of deported immigrants that ICE classifies as 'criminal aliens' has nearly doubled from 31 percent to 59 percent."
So the deportation of immigrants with criminal records nearly doubled, eh? Is it possible that they were the same immigrants that were 'released'? Because the dates and stats seem to fit.

And its interesting you link to media matters to make your case, not exactly leg work, is it? I think youre just coasting in your attempt to discredit. Its not working. Also, I wonder if you have figured out that fox news is not cited in my OP, I have no idea why you continue to mention it here.
Congress seems not to have a problem with the CIS testifying in Congress since they are considered more knowledgable on immigration matters than anyone else in America.
From your own Wiki link talk page.
The SPLC and IRC claims
>"Neither the SPLC nor IRC provide evidence of their claim. As such, it must be identified as a claim, not proof of that claim. To identify it as a claim is not an ad hominem."<
>" You should be aware that the SPLC article that you referenced in the article claims or, to be generous, insinuates very strongly that FAIR is in bed with Neo-Nazis. By then linking CIS with FAIR, they are seeking to damn CIS by association. The SPLC article is an attack piece plain and simple and it provides no source for any of its claims for CIS"<
>"We require that our sources be reliable. An unsourced claim by a left wing political activist group who has been accused by other, third party, sources of working to overinflate the number of political racist groups is hardly a reliable source."<
>"The source for saying that CIS is nonpartisan is Time magazine's Special Investigation "Who left the door open?" dated Sept 12, 2004. I don't know how to reference it in the article, however"<
>"Two third party sources, Harper's Magazine and Montgomery Advertiser, have independently shown that the SPLC, though it claims to be about ending racism, practices insitutionalized racism. One of those investigations was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. That makes the SPLC unethical. They also (among other sources) showed that the SPLC, despite being a non-profit, is highly profit driven. That not only makes the SPLC unethical, it makes the SPLC money-grubbing. The SPLC provides no support for its claim written here. That claim is supports the SPLC's agenda. So, we have an unethical, money-grubbing organization making a statement which supports its agenda. Do you really want to make the claim that it is anywhere near the same level as a reliable source as a third party neutral source?"<
>"Regarding the horse the SPLC has in this, they were identified as "the Jim and Tammy Faye Baker of the civil rights movement" (that's a quote from Millard Farmer, the famous death penalty defense lawyer). They stir up fear, get millions of dollars in donations, and spend two-thirds of that money on "administrative expenses". For more on the SPLC's "horse" in stirring up fear and riding the donations to fight it all the way to the bank..."<

More than a few on the Politico got their panties all bunched up and the abuse tab was hit over 100 times. The Politico staff removed my thread. I made my argument that all the thread is are links to fifty different dogs that were raped by illegal aliens that were covered in news broadcast or newspaper articles. It's all legit. I prevailed and the thread was put back up.
My "Mexican Rape Tree" thread wasn't so lucky. It was removed because some liberals were offended of the photos of trees along the U.S. - Mexican border where young Mexican illegal alien girls were raped by their Mexican coyotes and their panties were hung on trees as trophies.
The same rapist that Obama released the Democrats want to award with amnesty.
Just in case anyone doesn't know. right now there are about 2.3 million people locked up in prison in the USA.
Since only a small percentage of those people are locked up for life, eventually most of them will walk out of prison.
THEIR PRISON TERM WAS DETERMINED BY A JUDGE AND JURY.
When that term is over with they will walk out of prison.
And that has nothing to do with who's the president of the USA.
Deal with it.
