Lack of timely communication between federal agencies has cost the U.S. government as much as $125 million for medical care that isn’t even supposed to be provided to illegal immigrants and incarcerated criminals.

U.S. Clears Criminal Illegals with Removal Orders for Public Benefits

As if President Obama’s stealth amnesty program weren’t bad enough, one in eight foreigners who have been ordered deported—including serious criminals—subsequently get approved by the government to collect public benefits while they live in the country illegally. This is yet another one of those sad, only in America stories. The…


Feds Secretly Free Dangerous Criminals Instead of Deporting Them

The gigantic U.S. immigration system operates under a cloak of secrecy, releasing thousands of dangerous criminals who avoid deportation and commit deadly crimes after being freed by the feds, a disturbing newspaper series reveals.
