Ted Cruz Forces ICE Director To Admit He Is “Absolutely Right” After He Catches Her Using False Statistics

Senator Ted Cruz was interrogating ICE Director during a committee hearing over immigration. She disputed his claim that Obama released 104,000 criminal illegal aliens.

“When I asked you how many criminals ICE released in 2013, you were off by a factor of three,” Cruz said. “You said 30,000 — the correct answer is 104,000.”

She argued that she thought he was talking about the number from 2014. And said the number from 2014 was close to 30,000. She continued that the good news was the number in 2014 was down from 2013.

“But you’re omitting the 68,000 criminal illegal aliens that ICE did not begin deportation proceedings against at all. You’ve got to add both of those together — it’s over 100,000.”

She responded with “Yes sir, that’s absolutely right.”

And then added “All done pursuant to this statute that Congress has outlined.”

The real question of course is why is this number not 0. Why are any criminal illegal aliens being released.

Sign The Petition To Stop Obama's Illegal Immigration Amnesty

There are people around the world patiently waiting to become US citizens. There is no reason to reward law breakers with citizenship while other law abiding people follow our laws and go through the legal process to become citizens. Rewarding law breakers simply encourages people to break laws and it punishes people that choose to follow the rules.
