These "Threat Level 1 criminals "who are deemed the top priority for deportation, were still released out into the community even as they waited for their immigration cases to be heard."
Liberal blame game: "Homeland Security officials have implied their hands are tied by court rulings in many cases." However, "the numbers, obtained by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, showed 57 percent of the criminals released were by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcementâ€™s own choice, and they could have been kept instead."
In other words, undocumented democratic workers & cheap labor trumps Americans safety.
But wait, its okay, they can track them:
"ICE officials insist that those who are released are still monitored, often by electronic ankle bracelets but also through a system of phone checks or by paying a bond. However, nearly all of those released under electronic monitoring broke the terms of their release, according to ICE numbers."
"In fiscal year 2014, ICE put about 41,000 immigrants through electronic monitoring, and more than 30,000 of them broke the terms of their release â€” many of them racking up multiple violations. All told, they notched nearly 300,000 violations in one year alone, or an average of 10 instances per violator." http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jun/3/3700-illegal-immigrant-threat-level-1-criminals-re/
