    US: Most new immigrant families fail to report

    Quote Originally Posted by AP News
    WASHINGTON (AP) - For nearly three months this summer, the Obama administration carefully avoided answering questions about what happened to tens of thousands of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border and released into the United States with instructions to report back to immigration authorities.
    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and others said they faced deportation. But it turns out that tens of thousands of those immigrants did not follow the government's instructions to meet with federal immigration agents within 15 days. Instead, they have vanished into the interior of the U.S.
    The Homeland Security Department privately acknowledged that about 70 percent of immigrant families failed to report as ordered. The disclosure came during a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies.
    The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday's meeting and separately interviewed participants.
    On the recording, the government did not specify the total number of families released into the U.S. since October. Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70 percent figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices.
    The official, who was not identified by name on the recording, also said final deportation had been ordered for at least 860 people traveling as families caught at the border since May but only 14 people had reported as ordered.


    The Homeland Security Department did not dispute the authenticity of the recording.

    Surprised? No. Shocked? No. I'm sure the US INS and the White House knew this exactly would happen and possibly even hoped it would happen. What this shows is that the administration knew these people wouldn't show up for a deportation hearing so of course they would not register and report as ordered. It's silly to expect otherwise. It also shows that Homeland Security and the White House who have avoided (according to the article) at least 7 times to address this issue has failed to enforce US law. For that - they need to be held accountable.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    419,000 deported. 11.3 million here.

    As Growth Stalls, Unauthorized Immigrant Population Becomes More Settled | Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project

    "The nation’s estimated unauthorized immigrant population had risen steadily since at least 1990, when it numbered 3.5 million. By 2007, it had more than tripled, to 12.2 million."

    Thats because these progressives in government want them here.

    When an illegal immigrant family gets caught - they're given an immigration hearing date then turned loose and expected to show up for on the date set for the hearing - of course they never do, and there is no way to find them..

    Clearly the government WANTS them to be here.

    It's not only that tho - any illegal alien that makes it past border security is basically "home free" even if local authorities pick them up for anything, any crime there is nothing they can do about it. Local authorities don't have the power to deport them an INS wont take them.

    The bureaucracy is stunning.

    Now, the powers that be are really really stupid or they want open borders.

    Under Obama "deportations" are considered those deported when caught at the border by border patrol - under all other presidents "deportation" was considered those who made it well past the boarder and actually lived in the United States.

    Oh another problem with that graph is the FACT that illegal immigration to the US has tripled since Obama took office. The reason for that being that our government wont do a damn thing to anyone who is caught at the border besides hold them for an hour then bus them back across the border while portraying them as a "deportation" to inflate those graph statistics. Of course the illegal alien will just try again, and if caught they may bet "banned" from the US for 2-3 years or so, as if that really matters, considering if they're caught again by border patrol they will just get banned from the US for more time but quickly deported.

    So basically an individual could get deported numerous times without consequence while the statistics inflate.

    Don't overreact, changing Congress would put Democrats in charge of the House. Some here would be very dismayed by that!
