ICE Can Only Remove 4% of Illegal Aliens Per Year

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) memo has revealed they can only remove 4% of illegal immigrants per year. In spite of the lack of resources to enforce immigration law, the Obama administration has filed a lawsuit against Arizona for trying to help.

CNS reported:
In a June 30 memorandum, John Morton, assistant secretary of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said that enforcing civil immigration laws is vital to “our national security, public safety, and the integrity of our border and immigration controls.”

But Morton also said that ICE only has the resources to remove about 400,000 illegal aliens each year, a litle less than 4 percent of the current population of those in the United States illegally.
