Vitter: Obama Administration Releases Illegal Immigrant Criminals in Louisiana

(Washington, D.C.) -- U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.) today spoke out against the decision by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release illegal immigrants convicted of “homicide-related” offenses that had been awaiting deportation proceedings. ICE responded to a request from Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) disclosing that it released 169 convicted illegals from over 130 zip codes in 2013. At least two of the zip codes mentioned are from Louisiana: Kenner and Baton Rouge, released through the South Louisiana Detention Center.
