. . . as Glenn Reynolds would say. How about this from Sunday's Miami Herald:
Kesler Dufrene, who last year slaughtered three people in North Miami after being let out of immigration custody, wasn’t the only convict released to the streets because of a moratorium on deportations to Haiti.
According to newly released federal statistics, 687 Haitians slated for deportation [because they had been convicted of a crime] were released to the streets in 2010 because of the year-long moratorium on deportations to the earthquake-ravaged island.
Of those, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took 90 back into custody and deported them to Haiti once the moratorium was lifted in January 2011. Another 16 are back in detention and are awaiting deportation.
And the rest, more than 500, are still out on the streets on supervised release or are out on their own recognizance. According to ICE, some are seeking “legal relief” to halt their deportations while others have been granted “an immigration benefit.”
Some are back in local jail after being re-arrested, according to ICE, which did not specify exactly how many have re-offended.
