Could Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have prevented the release of some 36,000 criminal immigrants last year?

The limited immigration group Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) say there is a good chance the answer is yes

Monday, an internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement document obtained by CIS and viewed by Breitbart News revealed that the 36,007 criminal immigrants convicted of nearly 88,000 crimes were released while awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings last year.

In explaining the releases, ICE pointed in part to court cases, specifically Zadvydas v. Davis, a 2001 Supreme Court case in which the court held the government could not indefinitely hold an immigrant if there is not a likelihood of removal in the “foreseeable future.” This may occur when a country refuses or unreasonably delays accepting people the United States is looking to deport. 

POLL: What is the worst Hillary Clinton scandal?

According to ICE, many of the releases — specifically 72 percent of criminal immigrants convicted of homicide — were mandatory, required by court decisions like Zadvydas

A little-enforced statute (8 U.S.C. § 1253(d)) CIS highlights, however, requires the Secretary of State to instruct consular offices to stop issuing visas to countries that engage in such obstruction.

  • If these two are not evil then they are the biggest fools ever to hold office, with exception of Obama!

  • Whatever he does, we always can depend on the Marxist supporting MSNBC and CNN to support it; or lie about it; or simply ignore it! We have some doozies on them! Al "racist" Sharpton and Mike, whatever his name is! Internationally I have heard Putin speak on various topics as many of us have. We should take note that he is not as pro-Marxist as is our Liberal fools in media!

  • Nick, I am not sure about mating with the daughters as we hear Muslims and many others with criminal backgrounds want virgins!

    What is our wonderful MSNBC telling with this story; CNN? We should find it interesting that most of who Obama wanted and appointed are now under attack for corruption and even murder! Want to bet our new American History books will blame honorable Conservatives for all Obama has done to our country!

  • Maybe they will get their house robbed by those immigrants, or better yet maybe they will mate with their daughters and become their family.....

  • I don't understand.  Why don't they still have to serve their sentences? Does this mean immigrants, can come here and rape and kill us with impunity if their country won't take them back for deportation? Or, did they already serve their sentences and couldn't be held any longer due to the deportation problem?

    Either way, apparently, the safety and welfare of Americans, is non existent under the Obama regime. Illegals have more protection and rights than American citizens. Plus, we will end up supporting these violent foreigners while they are murdering and raping us. This traitor government is making us finance our own destruction.

    Obama and the communists in the white house have brought hell to earth here in America.

  • Why would they stop it and do anything according to the law.  They are Obama's communist enforcers and they do not follow the law.  I guess the congress and senate don't either since they just sit and do nothing while this president and his crew destroy the USA.

  • The dogfaced rotten bitch hillary rotten clintonian will just say, "what difference does it make?"  They believe that they are above all laws.  John Kerry is the biggest asswipe to ever deface the Hallowed halls of  dc.

  • Obama yesterday stated, "We need "immigration" reform because it's a Law & Order issue." Of the 36,000 "criminal" Illegal aliens he released into our streets, some were murderers & some were rapists. Nice Law & Order!  Obama, Hillary, Holder, Janet Napolitano, & many other Demo-Socialists need to be in prison. Any family or loved one hurt, raped, or murdered by one of these released Illegal criminals need to file a gigantic lawsuit against this corrupt to the core administration.......

  • Hillary was "FIRED" for lying and other unethical conduct during the WATERGATE investigations! This leper does not change her spots. She is just as CORRUPT then as now, only difference being, that now she has "name recognition" as former First lady, Former Senator and now Former Secretary of State to add to her INFAMOUS resume' of hot scandals.

    How much more CORRUPT can this woman get? Elect her as the First Woman President and find out! Just joking! That was a rhetorical (STUPID) question
