Thousands of Criminal Illegal Immigrants Sent Home After Apprehension at Southwest Border

Nearly 4,000 illegal immigrants apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol at the southwest border over a three-year period were allowed to return to their home countries despite having past criminal convictions and connections to criminal networks.

The statistic is included in a new government audit exposing shortcomings in the way Border Patrol agents deal with illegal immigrants caught trying to cross the border into the United States.

Border Patrol agents use the Consequence Delivery System, or CDS, to classify apprehended aliens using seven criminal and noncriminal categories. They then decide which of eight consequences the apprehended aliens should receive, based on how effective the consequences are in preventing the individuals from trying again to illegally enter the United States. The CDS system plays a major role in the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to combat transnational criminal organizations and drug smuggling across the U.S. border.

However, Border Patrol agents incorrectly classified roughly 15,000 criminal alien apprehensions between fiscal years 2013-15, according to a Government Accountability Office report issued this month. Twenty-four percent of these aliens, or 3,717, were allowed to voluntarily return to their countries of origin. Voluntary return is rated as the least effective and efficient of the consequences. More severe consequences include criminal prosecution.

"using seven criminal and noncriminal categories."

Last time I checked crossing the border was a criminal offense if you were an illegal alien?? When did that change?

If they would start arresting these criminals, putting them up in "tent cities" and committing them to hard labor then that might deter the illegal aliens from constantly crossing the border.

When you deport the illegals they all keep coming back. Slapping them on the wrist isn't going to deter that crime. Hell, deportation isn't even slapping them on the wrist.

Giving them free room and board, food stamps, welfare, EBT cards, free education, free college. Hell they have it better than the hard working Americans that pay taxes.
