Will The New Republican Majority End Obama’s “Catch and Release” Of Illegal Aliens?

In 2013, under Obama's "catch and release" policy, 36,007 criminally convicted aliens were released by U.S. immigration officials, and in just one year 1,000 of them have since been convicted of a number of crimes, including but not limited to rape, assault with a deadly weapon, terroristic threats and lewd acts with a child under 14. Senators Chuck Grassley, Jim Inhofe, Jeff Sessions, David Vitter and Ted Cruz have introduced the “Keep Our Communities Safe Act" to put an end to this dangerous Obama policy.
