Letter: Release of immigrants

There was an interesting column in the July 19 Denver Post with some surprising statistics.

The Obama administration has been releasing tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens into our communities.

Just like some softhearted (headed?) local judges who set ridiculously low bails for all the illegal alien coke dealers busted by Lou Vallario and Co. Say Lou, any of those perps show up for their day in court? No? I haven’t read anything in the court news.

But back to Barack; between 2010 and 2014, 121 criminal illegal aliens were released who then were involved in homicides. From 2008 to 2012, Obama released 424 sex offenders who didn’t have to register as sex offenders due to a lack of communication. In 2013 Obama released a total 36,007 illegals with criminal convictions. In 2014, the number was 30,558.

Kathryn Steinle was killed in San Francisco recently by an illegal alien with seven prior felony convictions. Because San Francisco is a “sanctuary” city, they refused to notify ICE of his release.

Last year Obama’s open border policies allowed tens of thousands of illegal alien women and children to invade our country. Our tax dollars are now providing “free” food, shelter, clothing, teachers, entertainment and high-priced lawyers. When was the last time Barack gave you or your kids anything free?

The president has made a mockery of our immigration laws by rewarding criminals with work permits and defacto amnesty, even though illegal aliens are the main cause of income inequality.

Unfortunately the rich can never have enough poor to satisfy their greed. That’s how Aspen manages to pay maids less today than 35 years ago.
