Immigration offenses accounted for more than 81,000 of the 165,256 arrests made by federal authorities in 2014, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found in its study. Nearly two-thirds of the total number of federal arrests occurred in the five jurisdictions that sit along the U.S.-Mexican border.
The report further found those arrested along the U.S. southern border to be more likely than those arrested in any other region in the country to return to federal prison within three years of release.The Ethiopian man Khalid Adem was deported back to his country after he committed female genital mutilation on his daughter. There is no reason for the US to import such barbarians. In light of the new administration's crackdown on illegals, a prominent Hispanic festival in Phladelphia was canceled out of fear that it may become a target for immigration enforcement officers. It's also an eloquent testimony for the kind of people who attend such an event in the first place that would warrant such a concern. I'm also pleased to note that the State Dept. is also stepping up screening of people who want to enter the country. Last but not least, Germany spent more than $21 billion on refugees alone last year.
