President Obama has long been soft on crime and illegal immigration, but when is enough simply going to be enough?

Mr. Obama’s failure to protect the legal immigration process and crackdown on criminal aliens has resulted in hundreds of preventable assaults, rapes, robberies and murders.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the Obama administration released over 124 illegal immigrants between 2010 and 2015 that went on to be arrested and charged with murder here in the United States.

Two of these criminal aliens were previously convicted of homicide-related crimes and were released before being charged again with homicides.

The other 122 criminal aliens had together racked up over 450 criminal charges before being arrested and charged with a homicide.

These numbers are horrifying.

But, instead of supporting and protecting the American people, the Obama administration released over 5,000 illegal immigrants in 2013 alone, including many criminals and several illegal immigrants with links to terrorist activities.

Dave Ray, spokesman for the Federation of American Immigration Reform, characterized this ridiculousness perfectly by saying, “Unfortunately, some American families paid the ultimate price – the loss of a loved one – for this political theater.”

The reality is that there is much more that can and should be done to protect the American people from criminal aliens.

Yet, the question remains, how do we sort the ‘good’ from the ‘bad’?

Well, deporting the 1.9 million removable criminal aliens could be a good start.

But, you haven’t heard that statistic in the media lately, have you?

Did you even know that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement estimates that we have approximately 2.1 million criminal aliens living in our country, only 200,000 of whom have green cards?

The mass media and the Obama administration won’t talk about these statistics because they do not fit with their liberal rhetoric that support the weak policies of President Obama.

Nobody wants to tear families apart, but a criminal is a criminal no matter what their immigration status and we simply cannot sit by and let criminal aliens do more harm to our country.

Not only have these 1.9 million criminal aliens hurt and killed American citizens, but they have also imposed enormous costs on families and communities nationwide.

Many of these criminal aliens were deported multiple times before coming back to murder American citizens and tear American families apart.

Enough is enough.

It’s time to crack down on criminal aliens and bring justice to the families of their victims and to our country by refusing to allow our leaders to be soft on illegal immigration and criminal aliens.
