Gov't releasing 3,500 illegal immigrants who have committed more serious crimes

It's probably just me but several things about illegal immigration really tick me off:

First is the sheer number of people sneaking into the U.S. illegally, and the government--supposedly a government that represents US (but actually does no such thing)--does essentially nothing to stop the tide.

Second is the number of illegals who commit other, more serious crimes after they get here--notably either outright murder or killing by driving drunk.

Third is the number of left/liberal/"progressives" who claim--against all evidence--that illegals don't commit any more crimes than legal citizens.

And finally, there should be a special place in prison for government officials who deliberately release--into the U.S.-- illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes, allegedly because their home countries won't take 'em back, and there's no room in U.S. prisons to hold 'em.

This problem isn't limited to just one party: It happened under Bush and is still going on today. According to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, the bureau of "Immigration and Customs Enforcement" releases an average of about 3,500 illegal aliens each year who have been convicted of other, arguably more serious crimes.

The chairman--Republican Lamar Smith of Texas--has introduced a bill to stop this, and the Left is marshalling its allies in the media to see that it's defeated. For example, Ahilan T. Arulanantham, deputy legal director with the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, said Smith’s bill would cause the incarceration of immigrants who would otherwise help the economy.

I'm sorry, but I think we can easily afford to lose the "services" of 3,500 criminal aliens each year to prevent the murders of more cops or innocent drivers.

And as for the bleeding hearts who say it's just plain cruel to keep all 3,500 in jail to prevent a few hundred from killing American citizens, I ask this: Under what legal theory do you support the release of a criminal simply because the guy had the smarts to flee to the U.S.?

If anybody knows any leftists, ya might ask 'em this one. I'm really curious.
