Why on earth are we arresting individual illegals multiple times? Didn’t Napolitano argue that they are deporting “criminal” aliens? If so, why are these miscreants still here?

On Thursday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report which shows that California’s illegal alien prison population has risen 17 percent since 2003, with the actual number of incarcerated aliens at 102,795 in 2009.

According to GAO auditors, California spends $34,000 annually to incarcerate each illegal alien.

In 2010, California spent around $1 billion on their illegal alien inmate population.

Based on our random sample, GAO estimates that the criminal aliens had an average of 7 arrests, 65 percent were arrested at least once for an immigration offense, and about 50 percent were arrested at least once for a drug offense. Immigration, drugs, and traffic violations accounted for about 50 percent of arrest offenses.

SCAAP criminal aliens incarcerated in selected state prison systems in Arizona, California, Florida, New York, and Texas were convicted of variousoffenses in fiscal year 2008 (the most recently available data at the time of GAO’s analysis). The highest percentage of convictions for criminal aliens incarcerated in four of these states was for drug-related offenses. Homicide resulted in the most primary offense convictions for SCAAP criminal aliens in the fifth state—New York—in fiscal year 2008.

Napolitano is a liar. Just like her boss.
