(CNS News) – Nearly 900,000 illegal aliens who have received a final order of removal are still in the United States – and about 167,000 of these are convicted criminals who were released by ICE and are currently at large, a new study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows.

According to the study, 883,000 total illegal aliens are legally required to leave the U.S, but are still here:

“As of the end of the 2014 fiscal year, there were approximately 167,000 convicted criminal aliens at large in the United States (released by ICE) who have been ordered removed and exhausted all appeals. In addition, there were approximately 716,000 deportable non-criminal aliens at large who have been ordered removed and exhausted all appeals.”

According to U.S. Immigrations and Customs (ICE) officials who spoke off the record with CIS, ICE officers are instructed to release or take a pass on illegal aliens whose crimes are designated as “minor” or who have family members in the United States. The result, the report says, is “that only a fraction of deportable aliens that ICE identifies actually will be processed for deportation.”

And, only about half (53%) of criminal illegal aliens encountered by ICE agents were actually deported, the report finds:

“It is important to note that, similarly, only a fraction of those aliens labeled as a criminal threat at the time of encounter were selected for deportation by ICE in 2014. According to the weekly ICE metrics report cited above, as of September 20, 2014, ICE officers had reported 170,125 encounters with aliens deemed a criminal threat. Meanwhile, only 90,500 criminal aliens were issued charging documents, indicating a startlingly large number – potentially nearly 80,000 – of illegal aliens with criminal histories who were able to escape deportation proceedings in 2014, even after being encountered by an ICE officer.”
The report also finds that less than two percent of aliens who have been given a final order of removal, but have yet to leave the country, are in ICE custody:

“ICE’s weekly metrics report includes information on the number of aliens who have been issued a final order of removal, but who remain in the country. As of September 20, 2014, the total number of such aliens was 897,572. Of these, less than 2 percent (14,629) were detained in ICE custody. Yet 174,258 of these post-final-order deportable aliens were convicted criminals. Only about 4 percent (7,477) of the convicted criminal post-final-order aliens were detained in ICE custody.”

“Unrelated to Ebola,” agency claims

Residents of South Texas were on edge after a photo surfaced showing several illegal immigrants wearing face masks while in Border Patrol custody.

The photo, snapped and sent in to ABC affiliate KRGV by an anonymous viewer, shows several illegals standing and sitting outside of what appears to be the Anzalduas International Bridge, along the US-Mexico border.

The persons in the photo, about eight in total, appear to be wearing surgical masks and latex rubber gloves, leading to questions about whether the men were infected with communicable diseases.

Customs and Border Protection did not give details on the detainees, other than to say that the men did not have the deadly Ebola virus.

“No case or individual processed by CBP at Hidalgo-Pharr-Anzalduas Port of Entry on Oct. 13 was related to Ebola,” CBP responded in a statement.

CBP also said that it has ramped up health precautions at all US ports of entry and that it is working alongside the CDC to “develop policies, procedures and protocols to identify travelers that are known by US public health officials to have a communicable disease and to handle in a manner that minimizes risk to the public…”

From CBP’s statement to KRGV:

“When a traveler or alien is identified with a possible communicable disease or identified from information that is received from the CDC, CBP personnel will take the appropriate safety measures by donning personal protective equipment (PPE), to include gloves and surgical masks, which are readily available for use in the course of their duties. CBP personnel receive training in illness recognition, but if they identify an individual believed to be infected, CBP will contact CDC along with local public health authorities to help with further medical evaluation.”
Rather than halt connecting flights from Ebola-afflicted West African regions, the US Border Patrol has also stepped up health precautions at at least five major airports throughout the country, including Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dulles International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

While the agency was able to tamp down Ebola concerns, the fact that no specific explanation has emerged regarding why the illegal immigrants photographed were wearing protective gear will likely only lead to further public consternation.

Obama Should Take A Lesson On Immigration From Australia


By Robert Gehl
October 14, 2014

The Obama Administration could learn a lot from Australia on immigration.

The country has taken a very tough stance against illegal immigration – promising to deport anybody landing on their shores and assuring possible immigrants that the rules won’t change anytime soon.

In a message to possible illegal immigrants, Australia Customs released a video outlining their hardass policy.

The poster – above – sends a strong message – “NO WAY – YOU WILL NOT MAKE AUSTRALIA HOME.” The stated intent is to stop rampant human smuggling. In the video, General Angus Campbell warns potential immigrants that not only will they be deported, but that smugglers’ promises they will be taken to New Zealand are not true – that no smuggling boat has ever made its way to New Zealand.

The policy is called “Operation Sovereign Borders.”

Asylum seekers who travel by boat without a visa will not end up in Australia. The rules apply to everyone; families, children, unaccompanied children, educated and skilled. There are no exceptions.

Australia is serious about protecting its borders and will stop anyone who attempts to come illegally by boat.

The OSB Joint Agency Task Force is delivering a range of offshore communication activities to inform people considering travelling to Australia illegally by boat that the rules have changed, they should not believe the lies of people smugglers and there is no way they will make Australia home.

Yup. We could learn a thing or two from our friends Down Under.

Two of Obama’s Illegal Alien ‘Children’ Escape Detention, Carjack 91-Year Old WWII Veteran

Don’t they sound like “wonderful additions to the fabric of America,” as Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin (D) called them back in August?

The narrative of Barack Obama’s virtual amnesty for 60,000 “poor unaccompanied children” took a hit this week as two illegals escaped from DHS custody and led police in two states on a 220-mile crime spree.

Two teenage illegal aliens who were allowed into the U.S. in recent months by Barack Obama, broke out of a detention facility in Illinois and committed two carjackings, including of a 91-year-old Navy veteran.

The Guatemalan illegals, ages 16 and 17, were eventually caught. That’s the good news. The bad news is that despite their crimes, they will remain in the United States.

As TRN has reported for months, Obama engineered this border bum rush of tens of thousands of illegals, who swarmed an overwhelmed Border Patrol and were quickly transported to all 50 states — skipping critical medical checks that have led to the spread of dangerous disease in at least 14 states.

But in conjunction with a lapdog media, the Administration and leading Democrats have pretended these illegals were all helpless, harmless “children” escaping crime and miserable poverty in Central America.

What we we not told is that of the 60,000 “unaccompanied minors”, only 20% were actually children under 13, but another 20% had known criminal records, including violent crimes, gang activity, and drug and human smuggling — and were still allowed to stay and even transported to every state in America.

One such state was Illinois, where these two carjackers went. The teenagers were being held at the Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, a suburb of Chicago. In July, Democrat Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel welcomed the illegals, saying he would take more than 1,000: “While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions,” Emanuel said to CNN

Well it looks like they brought some “dangerous conditions” into America with them. According to the DailyMail:

Police say the teens escaped about 6am and committed a carjacking of a victim nearby about 40 minutes later. During the carjacking, the teen threatened the victim with violence, Des Plaines police Commander Randy Akin told MailOnline.

They drove 165 miles southwest to Moline, Illinois, where they targeted the 91-year-old man at a Walmart about noon. The teens threatened to beat up the 91-year old Navy WWII veteran, and made him give them his keys.

The teens then sped off and hit a parked car on their way out of the parking lot. They headed west on Interstate 80 into Iowa. They made it 80 miles, past Iowa City, when they were finally caught. Troopers used spike strips to shred the teens’ tires and then pulled them over.

The teens did not speak, and only indicated that they spoke little English, Lt Jones said.

Despite an anticipated spike in immigration, feds claim no threat posed by Ebola or terrorists


Officials with the Department of Homeland Security have admitted they expect another surge in illegal immigration this coming winter.

DHS is already building facilities for immigrant families in expectation that “the influx could grow again this winter,” reports the Los Angeles Times.

“We believe it is necessary to build more of that capability in the event we have another spike,” DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said at a Center for Strategic and International Studies meeting on Thursday.

The surge is expected to increase as the scorching Texas summer and fall months come to an end, the DHS head says, even though overall immigration numbers have decreased to mid-2013 levels.

Seeking to allay concerns over terrorist and biological threats to the homeland, Secretary Johnson blamed “overheated rhetoric” for prompting fears that the Obama administration’s de facto open border policy is putting Americans in harm’s way.

“In the absence of facts, the American public is susceptible to claims that we have an open, ‘porous’ border, through which unaccompanied minors and members of terrorist organizations such as ISIL may pass,” Johnson said.

Labeling claims that ISIS fighters had been caught at the southern Texas border “categorically false,” Johnson asserted that the people apprehended at the border were actually Kurdish immigrants who had fought against ISIS in Iraq, but who reportedly “had no link to terrorism.”

The DHS Secretary’s comments follow concerns raised by vice president of the National Border Patrol Council local chapter 3307 Chris Cabrera, who told news outlets last week that he was worried for the safety of his fellow agents after immigrants from Liberia and other Ebola-stricken African nations were caught attempting to sneak into the U.S.

Yesterday, Marine Corps General John F. Kelly told the National Defense University in Washington that during his travels in Costa Rica he witnessed “a handful of Liberian men preparing to be smuggled into the U.S. as illegal immigrants,” according to the Washington Times.

Gen. Kelly speculated that, as the Ebola crisis grows more out of control, immigration from Ebola-stricken nations would increase, making this summer’s immigrant surge “look like a small problem.”

“If Ebola breaks out in Haiti or in Central America, I think it is literally ‘Katie bar the door’ in terms of the mass migration of Central Americans into the United States,” General Kelly said.

The general’s concerns were echoed by several medical experts this past summer, who also warned that the Obama administration’s lax immigration enforcement could potentially lead to people infected with Ebola coming into the United States.

“If risk is so low for the U.S., why is the CDC quietly setting up Ebola Quarantine Centers in 20 cities across the U.S.? Why did the Congressional Record report that Ebola bio kits have been deployed to National Guard units in all 50 states?” Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet questioned in early September, weeks before the first U.S. case of Ebola was diagnosed in Dallas.

Despite the feds’ attempts to calm the public over potential disease and terrorist threats crossing the open southern border, the fact that the DHS is actually admitting the surge will increase during the winter season will no doubt keep the American public guarded.
