According to 76 pages the DHS released to Judicial Watch following its FOIA lawsuit, the DHS released 165,900 criminal illegal aliens from detention facilities since April 2014. Their crimes consist of homicides, aggravated assaults, sexual assaults, and kidnappings. Judicial Watch filed this lawsuit after the DHS failed to respond to its FOIA request.

Judicial Watch’s president Tom Fitton also commented on this lawsuit, as quoted in the article:
“It’s appalling that we’ve had to sue in federal court to get key information about the Obama administration’s release of 165,950 convicted criminal aliens,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement releasing their report. “These documents show the Obama administration is lying when it says that its ‘enforcement priorities’ include deporting illegal aliens who have committed heinous crimes. And lawless localities that help protect illegal alien rapists and other criminals show that politicians at all levels put politics above the rule of law and the public safety. Where do the innocent victims of the illegal alien criminals this president’s appointees have set free go for justice?”
