Washington Times-- January 30, 2015  
Illegal immigrants released from custody committed 1,000 new crimes
    One thousand of the 36,000 illegal immigrant criminals the government released in 2013 have gone on to commit other crimes, including child sex abuse, hit-and-run and child cruelty, according to new data released Friday evening by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley.
    The information, which the Homeland Security Department provided to Mr. Grassley, details all 1,000 convictions including dozens of drunk-driving convictions, drug offenses and weapons convictions. But the more serious crimes include domestic abuse, carjacking and aggravated assault...[...]
    “The Obama Administration claims that it is using 'prosecutorial discretion' to prioritize the removal of criminal aliens from this country. But this report shows the disturbing truth: 1,000 undocumented aliens previously convicted of crimes who the Administration released in 2013 have gone on to commit further crimes in our communities,” Mr. Grassley said.

Barack Obama Immigration Scandal: 8 Facts About Executive Action Amnesty Controversy 
President Barack Obama's 2014 executive amnesty action will protect some 4-5 million illegal aliens from being deported.

Portlanders should ask representatives to control immigration 
Portland has attracted national attention for its efforts to limit urban sprawl. It is noteworthy to find a mindset that bigger is not necessarily better.
