Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu (R) said that he cannot get access to the names of the nearly 500 criminal illegal immigrants released in his county on Tuesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
“30,000 this year, 36,000 the year prior, and these aren’t the run of the mill illegals. There’s 11 to 20 million illegals that are here in the United States. This is the group that everybody, even President Obama, said that are the worst of the worst actors, that everybody agreed need to be shipped out of our country back to their country of origin. There [were] 193 of them that were convicted of murder. 300-plus that were convicted of rape and sexual assault, and there [were] another 200 to 300 that were convicted of kidnapping [that were released in 2013]. So, these are the worst criminals in our society, and they were not returned to their country of origin because of what she [ICE Director Sarah Saldana] said and Jeh Johnson said, ‘well, their countries don’t want them back'” he stated.
Babeu added, “we have no clue where they’re at today…they released nearly 500 in my county alone…I have demanded not only in formal letter, through FOIA, and legally have even talked to Senator McCain. Senator McCain, who’s a powerful Senator, said, ‘Sheriff, I promise you, I’m going to get you these names.’ He can’t get me the names. Nobody will get me these names, and the reason why they will refuse to provide the names is then we have a list of all these illegals that our government — President Obama has released into our communities that are committing new crimes, that are committing murder, that are committing rape, that are committing aggravated assault, armed robbery, and then we can directly link them back to the president’s action of this unlawful mass prison break.”
