Editorial: Releasing criminal immigrants | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Opinion: Editorials (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/opinion/editorials/stories/DN-ice_18edi.State.Edition1.236dde3.html - broken link)

"...Hundreds of illegal immigrant inmates charged with felony crimes – murder, rape, drug dealing and child molestation – were set free because Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities didn't complete the paperwork to hold them for deportation.

ICE, part of the Homeland Security Department, failed to process detention orders for roughly 2,600 jail inmates who admitted they were illegal immigrants. In 177 cases, inmates committed additional crimes after being released. Hundreds had three or more prior convictions..."

ICE is a pretty worthless organization and i believe that they were meant to be that way. if you report a suspected illegal, they will not even initiate an investigation without proof. how would the average person even be able to prove it to them? they are supposed to be doing the investigation. they won't go to a packinghouse to get identification but police will sit outside a bar and wait for people to leave and then stop them on suspicion without actual proof first. so our government bends over more for the illegal immigrants because they don't actually want to stop it!

I think they want to do their job but so under staffed and so much red tape that it has been made a nightmare for them to do their job and thus many have just given up.

Many are afraid of being in a situation that they may need to use force and now have their own gvmt turn on them.

Its easier and perhaps better just to avoid most situations because your going to get paid the same regardless and promoted according to time .
