This is the April 28, 2016 hearing on "Criminal Aliens Released by the Department of Homeland Security" held before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the statement of Sarah Saldana: "As Secretary Johnson has mentioned in previous congressional hearings, the Department is focused on the smart and effective enforcement of our immigration laws. Individuals who pose a threat to national security or public safety, or who are arrested crossing the border illegally, are enforcement priorities, and ICE [US Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is allocating enforcement resources accordingly, consistent with our laws. Day-in and day-out, Deportation Officers, Special Agents, and attorneys focus their efforts and resources on the removal of individuals who have been convicted of felonies, those who have been convicted of significant or multiple misdemeanors, those actively and intentionally engaged in gang activity, and recent border entrants. Today, I highlight the role the dedicated men and women of ICE play in the arrest, detention, and removal of individuals meeting the Department's enforcement priorities, and I am pleased to share some of ICE's recent initiatives and successes." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sarah R. Saldana, Ralph Martin, Wendy Hartling, Scott Root and Chris Burbank.
