    Is it true that ICE let loose almost 40 000 criminal illegal aliens in the streets of America?

    There's a  report that ICE let go almost 40 000 criminal illegal aliens  in the last year, and I even read a hub here  in HP,so I took it seriously ,but when I went to research it  ,it turns out it was put out by  The Center for Immigration Studies, which is a known anti immigrant organization, and then picked up by  Breitbart.com ,the Heritage foundation,Rush Limbaugh,and Sean Hannity,and other extreme right wing and xenophobe organisations ,so this is probably another baseless rumor being spread to scare the simpleton voter.

    The bigger question is why were ANY let go and not deported immediately. CIS is not "Anti-immigrant" as you put it, they ARE however anti-ILLEGAL immigrant. Big difference there.

    These people are not 'immigrants' the are illegal immigrants who broke the law the minute they crossed our border, i.e. they don't have a right to be here. Period.

    I don't know what they do Uruguay, and frankly I don't care, but here it is supposed to be illegal to cross the border with no passport and not use a Port of Entry. Because Obummer refuses to enforce the laws does not mean they cease to exist. 

    You can parse the numbers all you want, even ICE admits that a significant number were released, some of them murderers.

    "ICE spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said the report misses the fact that many of the releases were carried out under orders from U.S. courts. For example, she said 75% of the people released who had murder convictions were "mandatory releases."

    Exactly how is there any 'mandatory release' for a convicted killer? And why if they MUST be released are they not sent directly back to their country of origin?

    Go back to school, learn something.

    The problem with groups, such as the ones you mention, isn't always that they are completely wrong (though they sometimes are), it is that they heavily skew what they present: they cherry-pick facts, ignore full context, etc.

    Yes detainees are let go. What these groups won't tell you is things like that those let go have already served their prison terms, or that many are released under supervision, or that detainees have always been let go regardless of the administration, or that many are released based on the judiciary, which the administration has no control over. Nor will there be any discussion about budgets and resources, even though for any program that conservatives don't like (e.g welfare) that's all they ever seem to talk about.

    These groups and people don't talk about the full issue, because they don't actually care about the issue. They care about their partisan agenda and they care about smearing the opposition. Both of those things make them unworthy of any thinking person's time.

    These Alternatives to Detention programs started under Bush, and the issue of releasing undocumented immigrants has been around since then as well. If conservatives want to do anything about it then I'd recommend they drop their cheap partisan child's play and actually elect some representatives who bother to show up for work once in awhile.
