ARIZONA’S ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT POPULATION PLUNGES
Arizona’s illegal immigrant population is near its lowest level in a decade thanks to the tougher enforcement of immigration laws across the state.
The Department of Homeland Security released a report Friday that estimated (based on census date) there were 360,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona as of January 2011 – that’s down 110,000 from one year earlier and down from 200,000 in 2008 when an estimated 560,000 illegal immigrants lived in the state according to 2000 census data.
‘Experts’ at the Department of Homeland Security are saying the decline due to the lack of jobs in the construction and tourism industry, despite reports that tourism to this patriot-state has increased.
According to the report, Arizona now ranks ninth out of the 10 states with the largest illegal immigrant population – last year the state ranked fifth.
ICE RELEASES CHILD RAPIST UNDER OBAMA GUIDELINES
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released Amado Espinoza-Ramirez – an illegal immigrant, who is a child rapist accused of incest – because he has a child who is a U.S. citizen and no prior criminal convictions or immigration violations.
When Amado Espinoza-Ramirez, who was charged with 42 counts of predatory sexual acts, was turned over to ICE on Sept. 2, he was released ON THE SAME DAY. He then escaped his ankle monitor and is now a fugitive roaming free in the United States.
This case is a prime example of how the June 2011 memo from ICE Director John Morton, which put into effect Obama’s “prosecutorial discretion” or backdoor amnesty guidelines, has led to numerous dangerous criminals being released.
