In a column on her site (“Fact Check: Media claims that Trump is anti-immigrant,” 3/13/2016), ex-CBS News investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, writes:

“For example, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported that 2013 and 2014 alone, it set loose in the U.S. more than 66,500 illegal immigrant criminals who had been arrested in the U.S. for additional crimes and had over 166,000 convictions among them: 30,000 for drunk or drugged driving, 414 kidnappings, 11,301 rapes or other types of assaults and 395 homicides. In a fairly short time period, ICE reported 2,423 of those illegal immigrant criminals had already been rearrested and convicted of new crimes in the U.S.– including felonies and gang offenses.”

I queried Attkisson about those 66,500 illegal immigrants’ 166,000 convictions. Did the convictions take place in their home countries before they came to the US? This was her reply:

“The [166,000] crimes were committed here in US —NOT in their home country. We don’t know about crimes they committed in their home country. These are people who were jailed here NOT for being illegal, but for additional crimes they committed here after coming illegally. Then they were released instead of deported or kept in prison…”
