"While the two men were caught, the arrests will likely be seen by some Republicans a sign that it is too easy for people with criminal records to move back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico."

What the republicans need to take note of is that the border is secure or they would not have been caught. They need to put more pressure on Mexico to ensure that when these criminals are sent back they serve time and are monitored. Them coming over is one thing, but when they are getting caught then that is a WIN!!!!

As we head into yet another year wondering whether Washington, meaning President Obama and both political parties, will finally betray the nation and pass some form of illegal-immigrant amnesty, "Machiavelli" at the Virtuous Republic blog reminds us that the argument is about more than depressed wages, "keeping families together," and (in the misguided minds of Catholic bishops) Christian charity.
Machiavelli went to Immigration and Customs Enforcement records for 2013 and found the following crime-related information the establishment press is extremely reluctant to acknowledge at its main page for removal statistics (bolds are mine throughout this post):
Story Continues Below Ad ↓

In FY 2013:
- ICE conducted a total of 368,644 removals.
- ICE conducted 133,551 removals of individuals apprehended in the interior of the U.S.
--- 82 percent of all interior removals had been previously convicted of a crime.
- ICE conducted 235,093 removals of individuals apprehended along our borders while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S.
- 59 percent of all ICE removals, a total of 216,810, had been previously convicted of a crime.
--- ICE apprehended and removed 110,115 criminals removed from the interior of the U.S.
--- ICE removed 106,695 criminals apprehended at the border while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S.
- 98 percent of all ICE FY 2013 removals, a total of 360,313, met one or more of ICE's stated civil immigration enforcement priorities.
- Of the 151,834 removals of individuals without a criminal conviction, 84 percent, or 128,398, were apprehended at the border while attempting to unlawfully enter the U.S. and 95 percent fell within one of ICE's stated immigration enforcement priorities.
I would additionally argue that it should be intuitively obvious to anyone, even the relatively uneducated, that if you have to sneak into a country to gain access, you're committing a criminal act (and you legally are).
Machiavelli, who presents a great deal of detailed information about the degrees of criminality found in those who were removed, writes:
What do these numbers say about the alien population that does make it across the border?
Well, certainly, it should put to rest the idea that only hard working, honest people are illegally entering our nation. Instead, our politicians have unleashed a horde of criminals on us. Illegal immigration not only depresses wages, but ruins the quality of life in the United States by allowing unfit and dangerous people in our nation. Amnesty, I fear will just attract more criminals, looking for new opportunities.
Of course it will, but that point never seems to come up with the Chamber of Commerce types, congresspersons, administration officials, and press apparatchiks who are pushing mightily for what promises, for all of its alleged but already dubious merits, to bring on the mother of all crime waves.

So Dirtbag, what you are saying is that all 11 million are rapist? The fact that they are getting caught at the border while reattempting to come back in is not good? This means that the border is not secure because they are getting caught?
If you and that scumbag Steve King want blanket deportation why don't you or he do something about it. Start deporting everyone one by one. You want to talk about why they don't speak about stats of the criminals that come here illegally? It's because they do not represent the majority that is trying to make a living and attempting to stay right by the law. The other criminals will be dealt with and are being dealt with.
From your posted stats above it looks like things are working. They are catching and removing those criminals and stopping them at the border.
Sounds like a secure border to me

360K of the 386K, met ICE enforcement priorities. The border is secure.

By The Associated Press
Posted: 01/21/2012 01:05:15 PM MST
LORDSBURG A convicted felon has been arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in New Mexico after he allegedly entered the country illegally.
Agents assigned to the Lordsburg station arrested a man Thursday and a fingerprint database showed identified him as 51-year-old Porfirio Acosta Ochoa.
They say the Mexican man had positive criminal felony convictions for charges including homicide, assault in conjunction with a hit-and-run offense as well as prior immigration violations.
Authorities say Ochoa now is facing criminal prosecution for illegal re-entry and removal from the United States.

The Border is NOT SECURE, & DEPORT ALL illegal immigrants..

No it's not. Definitely,deport these leeching criminals and to ensure they don't try to return,strategically placed landmines and snipers would be an effective deterrent.

Those criminals should get deported but what you all fail to understand is that they are getting caught now upon re entry. This supports a secure border. Think about it

Tell that to BP agent Javier Vega Jr's family. This man was murdered in cold blood in front of his family by two illegals who were arrested and deported numerous times. One of the scumbags was arrested no fewer than four times for entering the US illegally,and the other POS was deported twice for entering the US illegally. NO,the border is Not secure!!! Landmines and Snipers are a Must!!

While this is sad maybe we need you down on the border to really secure it..
As a matter of fact, I can lay down the land mines and get my sniper pals and then have you walk the border to see if it meets your standards. I'll keep the mines a suprise
