The seriousness of the Third World invasion of America has been revealed in the latest Department of Homeland Security (DHS) statistics which show that 423,896 “Priority 1” illegal invaders were deported in 2016—individuals classed as “threats to national security, border security, and public safety,” and “the most serious categories of convicted criminals as well as gang members.”
In total, immigration enforcement agents and officers initiated new enforcement actions against 805,071 inadmissible or deportable aliens in fiscal year (FY) 2016.
The “Priority 1” individuals made up 91 percent of all DHS deportations, which totaled 450,954 “removals and returns.”
Of the remaining number, 5 percent were classified as “Priority 2”—“serious and repeat misdemeanants,” and “significant abusers of the visa system,” and 1 percent were “Priority 3”—“individuals issued a final order of removal on or after January 1, 2014.”
According to a year-end statement issued by the DHS, the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) reported 415,816 apprehensions nationwide, compared to 337,117 in FY 2015; and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 114,434 individuals, compared to 125,211 in FY 2015.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) identified 274,821 inadmissible individuals at ports of entry, compared to 253,509 in FY 2015. ICE removed or returned 240,255 individuals in FY 2016, compared to 235,413 in FY 2015.
The DHS statement also said that the “demographics of illegal migration” on the U.S.’s southern border “have changed significantly over the last 15 years.”
In this regard, the DHS said, “far fewer Mexicans and single adults are attempting to cross the border without authorization,” but more families and unaccompanied children are invading from Central America.
“In 2014, Central Americans apprehended on the southern border outnumbered Mexicans for the first time. In 2016, Central Americans again outnumbered Mexicans in apprehensions on the southern border.”
The flood of so-called “unaccompanied children” can be seen from the 59,757 apprehensions during 2016, along with the 77,857 “family units” nationwide.
Those claiming to be “unaccompanied children” are routinely released once again, despite crime statistics showing that they have caused a massive spike in Third World gang warfare across the country.
Significantly, the DHS statement added that its “civil immigration enforcement priorities have impacted how ICE conducts removals.”
“Rather than expending limited resources on individuals who have been in this country for many years or those charged or convicted of traffic and other minor offenses, ICE instead focuses its resources on those who pose a threat to public safety and on recent unlawful entrants, consistent with the Secretary’s November 20, 2014 memorandum,” the DHS said.
What this means in practical terms is that the DHS is not prosecuting long-term illegal invaders, and is merely concentrating on trying to control the current crop of invaders.
The “catch and release” policy, implemented by Obama’s Executive Order, however, makes a mockery even of these efforts. Once arrested, invaders are issued with papers ordering them to appear at an “immigration hearing” and then released.
To no one’s surprise, relatively few of these released invaders ever actually appear in court, and they simply “vanish” until they are detected by the law enforcement agencies for criminal activities.
