Street crimes units from around the US are making a startling discovery. Gang members are painting the ends of gun barrel orange. The theory is that cops will be slower to shoot because that orange tip is a signal of being a toy gun.

Orange gunsOfficers working out of Los Angeles first alerted us to this over the weekend. But soon enough reports have also come in from Chicago, New York and Dallas.

Many realistic looking toy guns, such as airsoft guns, are increasingly using orange tipped barrels in an attempt to signal the weapon is a fake. The last few years have seen an increase of police shootings where after the fact it was established the suspect had a toy gun.

Gang leaders are apparently using this trend to embolden their troops. Z-Bazz, leader of the Lucas Street Lords, was willing to talk with CallTheCops.

“Yo’ Dawg, the pigs be shooting people for no reason. Kidz gots toy guns just playin in some empty lot. Next thing ya know the popo blast them. Mannn we about to level this playing filed here. My boy Al Sharpton, he be coming down hard on the cops, tell them to identify if a gun is real or not befor they be blast’n away n’ all. So with the pigs on a leash, my boyz get to live to see another day. 5-0 be seeing them orange tips, they be all like, think’n toy gun…we going to save some homies lives in the hood doing this”

Z-Bazz was very carful in his words to never actually say his gang was going to shoot at cops. But anyone with an ounce of intelligence should be able to figure out what he is talking about.

No firearms training officers were willing to go on record for this story.

The Second Amendment, as affirmed by the Heller and McDonald cases, protects the right of American citizens to possess guns regardless of geographic boundaries within the U.S., yet cities like Washington, D.C. and Chicago make gun ownership very difficult. Seeing how these cities have violent crime rates higher than other U.S. cities, you would think they would make it easier for law-abiding citizens to possess guns as a means of self-defense as well as for sporting reasons.  Sadly this isn’t the case; in fact, the rights of gun owners in these two major U.S. cities are closer to gun rights of citizens of Mexico than they are to their fellow Americans.

Article 10 of the Mexican Constitution grants citizens the right to “possess arms in the home for security and legitimate defense” and, over the past five years, as violence has become more prevalent throughout the country, Mexican residents have been purchasing guns in large numbers. According to a recent study conducted by Ernesto Villanueva at the National Autonomous University in Mexico’s Institute of Legal Research, the number of Mexicans legally owning guns has increased more than 50 percent, from 2,033,749 in 2009 to 3,118,592 in 2012, which is one of the most violent periods in Mexican history given the ongoing battle with the country’s drug cartels.

Despite the seeming Constitutional guarantee, legally obtaining a firearm is very difficult as Mexico’s gun laws are actually quite strict, much like Chicago and D.C. There is only one military-run store in all of Mexico, the Mexico City-based Directorate of Commercialization of Arms and Munitions, where it is legally possible to obtain a firearm.  The store is located on a military base and features Belgian-, German-, Turkish- and U.S.-made handguns and rifles. Those hoping to buy a firearm for personal protection are restricted to buying a pistol or revolver and calibers are limited to between .22 and .38.  In July 2012, the most “exotic” firearm available to the average citizen was an $803.05 Smith & Wesson revolver. There are zero gun stores in Chicago and Washington and the types of guns permitted are also restricted based on aspects such as magazine capacity and appearance.

In both Chicago and Mexico, prior to even touching a firearm in a gun store (somewhere in suburban Illinois for Chicagoans), one must be approved for a license, which is not easy to do. The process in both Mexico and in Chicago can be lengthy and requires a significant amount of bureaucratic red tape. Additionally, the Mexican license must be renewed annually and, like D.C., it only allows the gun to be used in the gun owner’s home for personal protection. A separate permit is required to carry the firearm in public and that presents another hurdle for gun owners – from 2008 to 2013, only 318 out of the 1,627 applications for a public carry permit were approved. D.C. does not allow carrying the gun outside your home.

As of right now, American citizens in cities such as Chicago and D.C. are suffering under laws more similar to Mexico than the rest of America – despite the Constitutional guarantees of both countries.  We can’t do much about Mexico. Across the USA, NSSF will continue to fight against these senseless restrictions to free the lawful commerce in arms — and with it, the true constitutional rights of city residents as American citizens.

April 12, 2014 

Four years ago, Northern California found itself in the crosshairs of gun devotees who gathered at Baker Beach and various Starbucks locations, openly carrying their unloaded 9mm Glocks and .40-caliber Walthers.

The meet-ups scared other patrons and prompted the Legislature to ban open displays of unloaded handguns, with exceptions for rural counties where a gun owner obtains law enforcement permission. The resulting law, which went into effect in 2012, brought the displays to a screeching halt.

But now the open-carry crowd has shifted its sights from coffee bars to the courts, hoping to leverage recent favorable decisions on concealed carrying of guns in California into favorable rulings on the harder sell of open carry.

“That’s the next logical step in the evolution of gun rights in California,” said Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California in Folsom (Sacramento County). The gun-flaunting gatherings “have died off because they were squelched and our people are law-abiding. But that doesn’t mean we’re not preparing for the next round, which is the courts.”

The slow path through the courts is a sharp contrast to the open-carry movement’s fast-lane push through legislatures in gun-friendly states such as Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee.

In those states and elsewhere in the South and Southwest, open carry is something of a final frontier for the National Rifle Association and its allies, now that all states have legalized some form of concealed carrying of guns.

In California, a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in February in favor of concealed-carry permit applicants in San Diego County, saying the need to show “good cause” to obtain a permit from the county sheriff violated their Second Amendment rights. A separate Ninth Circuit decision last month in a case from Yolo County came to the same conclusion.

Using rulings in future

Paredes said these rulings will form the basis for future court arguments that state prohibition of open carrying of guns also violates the Second Amendment.

But lawyers favoring gun control counter that state laws covering both concealed and open carrying of weapons are on solid legal ground.

“The gun lobby can’t win this fight through the democratic process, so they are trying to overturn the will of the people in the courts,” said Cody Jacobs, staff lawyer for the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence in San Francisco. “However, they won’t succeed.”

He called the Ninth Circuit rulings “outliers” in conflict with opinions in other circuits on the same topic.

The provocative quality of open-carry demonstrations has drawn skepticism even among gun-rights supporters. “Fighting to change people’s opinions about guns by carrying guns in public is not very productive,” said Gene Hoffman of San Carlos, chairman of the CalGuns Foundation. “Why not just wear a T-shirt saying, ‘I’m carrying’? Problem solved.”

Whether through demonstrations or the courts, open-carry advocates say their goals include normalizing the display of guns in public – arguably a steep uphill climb.

“We want the public to see this kind of thing is not a threat,” said Jeff Knox of the Firearms Coalition in Phoenix. “It’s just a guy walking down street carrying his tools.”

Conflict in the ranks

But Knox acknowledged disagreement over the tactical value of public gun displays.

“There is conflict within our ranks,” Knox said. “Some feel the real in-your-face open-carry protests are detrimental because they scare middle-ground people.”

Gun-control advocates say the idea of desensitizing public fear of openly displayed firearms is preposterous.

“That’s wrong on so many levels that it’s hard to know where to begin,” Jacobs said. “If ‘more guns, less crime’ were true, we’d have less crime than anywhere in the world.”

Director Robert Bray’s home was raided in December in connection with the ongoing probe. Law enforcement and congressional sources told FoxNews.com that Bray’s recently announced retirement, which is effective in June, is directly related to the investigation. 

Bray allegedly is among several officials who were obtaining weapons through this operation. 

The Department of Homeland Security inspector general probe — which also is believed to involve the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — stems from whistleblower accusations involving federal Air Marshal supervisor Danny Poulos. 

He is accused of using the agency’s federal firearms license and his relationship with gun manufacturer Sig Sauer to obtain discounted and free guns. He then provided them to high-up agency officials for their personal use, according to whistleblower documents obtained by FoxNews.com and interviews with multiple officials with knowledge of the ongoing probe. 

It is unclear, based on the allegations, whether he made money off the alleged transactions, and how many guns were involved. 

Reached for comment, a TSA spokesman said, “We are aware of the allegations and we are looking into them.” The spokesman, though, said he was not aware of a DHS IG or ATF probe. 

Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., chairman of the House Homeland Security transportation security subcommittee, wrote a letter to Transportation Security Administrator head John Pistole on Thursday raising “grave concern” about the claims of possible “gross misconduct.” 

Though Congress is supposed to be notified of these types of probes, when reached by FoxNews.com for comment, a spokesman for Hudson said they had received no such notification. 

In the letter, Hudson cited claims that an Air Marshal supervisor “may have accepted free firearms that were offered because of the employee’s official position in 2010, at a time when such firearms were being tested by FAMS for possible future procurement.” 

He wrote that the same employee “may have, in turn, sold or given those firearms to other Federal employees, including but not limited to the current Director of FAMS.” 

He also voiced concern that the director’s retirement “may be directly related” to the investigation into the activity. Further, he complained that Congress was not notified of any of this. 

“I am extremely concerned about recent allegations of unethical behavior involving firearms within the Federal Air Marshal Service, dating as far back as 2010,” Hudson told FoxNews.com in a written statement. “The alleged behavior is unbecoming of any official entrusted with the duty to protect and serve the American public. I am outraged at the apparent attempt by TSA and the Federal Air Marshal Service to hide this from Congress. TSA needs to come forward and provide clear and complete answers so that we can conduct a thorough and open review of these alleged activities on behalf of the American people.” 

Hudson gave Pistole until next Friday to provide more information on whether illegal and/or unethical activity took place and other details. 

Reached by phone on Thursday, Poulos told FoxNews.com: “I don’t have a comment.” 

Poulos’ lawyer also told FoxNews.com it was premature to speak on the record about his client. 

FoxNews.com attempted to reach Bray for comment via email, but has not received a response. 

The DHS-OIG office said it would not comment on “investigative matters,” when reached by FoxNews.com. 

The details in Hudson’s letter square with accounts from whistleblower documents and other sources. 

One document obtained by FoxNews.com said the director and former deputy director “received several firearms from [the supervisor] that included ‘special purchases’ such as long guns and assault rifles.” 

“The DHS IG is presently investigating a pervasive personal gun purchasing issue at the FAMS. The investigators are quietly calling in federal air marshals that purchased weapons from [the supervisory agent] out of his federal government office and taking photographs of the [sic] each gun’s serial numbers,” the document said. 

The document detailing the allegations — written by a whistleblower and circulated among some employees — claimed that Poulos, at the Washington Field Office, is “under an active investigation by the DHS IG” for using his FAMS license to buy guns “from Sig Sauer for the FAMS Director, senior TSA/FAMS staff and a few Federal Air Marshals at a discounted ‘FAMS Agency’ rate.” 

The document further said “some of these weapons may not fully be accounted for or some stolen — thus the reason for the DHS IG to want photos of the serial numbers.” 

Sources and documents say that the director’s home was raided on Dec. 26, 2013 and at least one gun was seized that was allegedly connected to the gun operation.   

Sources told FoxNews.com that Bray filed a police report after the raid reporting the weapon stolen — even though it allegedly was seized by ATF during the raid. The Fairfax County police in Virginia, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by FoxNews.com, provided information saying that on Dec 26, a pistol was reported stolen from the home address of Bray. But the date of theft was listed as Dec. 20. 

It is unclear when the DHS OIG investigation began, but if the Dec 26 stolen weapon police report is any indication, it was going on at that time. 

Poulos did not personally have a federal firearms license, but had been authorized to use FAMS’ license to purchase guns for the agency, according to documents — he’s accused of using that license to buy the weapons for other officials, including the director, for their personal use. 

Documents obtained by FoxNews.com also claim the ongoing investigation “is being conducted quietly to keep Congress in the dark on the gross mismanagement and misdeeds that the FAMS senior management staff have perpetrated for several years.” 

Bray announced his retirement in a March 31 email to agency employees. 

“Many of you have heard me talk about the importance of change and how vital it is to keep any agency moving forward,” he wrote. “Therefore, I need to practice what I preach and so effective June 28th, I am going to retire from Federal service.” 

He said he has no plans “except to spend time with my wife and family, without whose love and support I could not have had such a great, long career.”

On social media and elsewhere, soldiers have been speaking out about their inability to defend themselves at work in the wake of last week's shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.

On social media and elsewhere, soldiers have been speaking out about their inability to defend themselves at work.

“It’s the only place that a licensed soldier can’t carry,” said Staff Sgt. Jacob Wiley, who’s assigned to the 708th Contingency Contracting Team at Fort Campbell, Ky. “When you’re deployed,you have your weapon issued to you, and it’s mandatory that you carry it. Then you come back home and you come onto post, and … the only people who are going to have weapons are military police … and those who don’t care about the law.”

Wiley contends that soldiers are trained to carry and handle weapons.

“I don’t understand why it’s muscle memory downrange but not at home,” he said.

After the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, Wiley said he and his fellow soldiers had to sit through ineffective active-shooter training.

“It’s ridiculous. All they do is put a Band-Aid on it, check the block,” he said. “The briefing told us to shut the door, turn off the light and hide behind the desk. And do what? Pray that someone with a gun comes to save me?”

A warrant officer, who asked to remain anonymous so he could speak freely, said he believes select soldiers should be allowed to carry weapons on post.

“If somebody is in a trusted position, someone with a security clearance, somebody who’s in charge of making sure a soldier’s welfare is taken care of, they should be carrying some sort of protection so we don’t have to wait 10 to 15 minutes for the police to show up,” said the warrant officer, who’s been in the Army since 2008 and is training to become a helicopter pilot. “That way we’re not forced to either run, which we don’t like to do, or use our bodies to protect somebody else, because that’s our only option right now.”

The warrant officer also said he believes potential shooters may think twice if he knows some soldiers may be carrying a concealed weapon.

“We can’t afford to have a military police officer at every building and every door,” he said.

Eric Chambers, a former Army medic and sergeant, agreed.

“At the very least, allow senior enlisted and company officers to carry handguns,” he said. “This way almost every area and soldier will have protection nearby. If we cannot trust our senior NCOs and officers to protect our troops, then who can we trust?”

Lawmakers are also speaking out.

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno if a hearing to discuss the issue was warranted.

“There’s clearly a difference of opinion on this,” Odierno said. “Our assessment is we probably wouldn’t initially support something like that, but all of this is worth a discussion.”

Odierno’s latest comments echo what he said April 3, also while testifying in front of the SASC.

“We have our military police and others that are armed, and I believe that’s appropriate,” he said in response to a question from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. “I believe that allows us the level of protection necessary.”

Three soldiers were killed and 16 others wounded April 2 when a fellow soldier opened fire on them with a .45 caliber handgun.

The accused gunman, Spc. Ivan Lopez, killed himself after he was confronted by a military police soldier, officials said.

In a news briefing Monday, officials said Lopez opened fire after an argument. He then left and drove away, shooting at times from his car. The three soldiers who were killed were gunned down in separate locations.

Investigators said Lopez fired more than 35 shots in an eight-minute period.

As of Monday, 11 of the 16 injured soldiers have returned to duty.

A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon on Fort Hood. President Obama is expected to attend.

In 2009, 13 people were killed by then-Maj. Nidal Hasan, who had said he was angry about being deployed to Afghanistan and wanted to protect Islamic and Taliban leaders from U.S. troops.

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that gun tracking bracelets are something the Justice Department (DOJ) wants to “explore” as part of its gun control efforts.

When discussing gun violence prevention programs within the DOJ, Holder told a House appropriations subcommittee that his agency is looking into technological innovations.

“I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe,” he said.

“By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”

“It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis,” Holder said.

The Justice Department has requested $382.1 million in increased spending for its fiscal year 2014 budget for “gun safety.”

Included in the proposal is $2 million for “Gun Safety Technology” grants, which would award prizes for technologies that are “proven to be reliable and effective.”

For 20 years, a tough-as-leather Nevada rancher and the federal government have been locked in a bitter range war over cattle grazing rights.

This weekend the confrontation got worse, when the feds hired contract cowboys to start seizing Cliven Bundy’s cattle, which have been grazing on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The government officials brought a show of force that included dozens of armed agents in SUVs and helicopters.

Bundy, 67, who has been a rancher all his life, accuses BLM of stampeding over on his rights.

“This is a lot bigger deal than just my cows,” Bundy told FoxNews.com. “It’s a statement for freedom and liberty and the Constitution.”

The fight involves a 600,000-acre area under BLM control called Gold Butte, near the Utah border. The vast and rugged land is the habitat of the protected desert tortoise, and the land has been off-limits for cattle since 1998. Five years before that, when grazing was legal, Bundy stopped paying federal fees for the right.

“For more than two decades, cattle have been grazed illegally on public lands in northeast Clark County,” the BLM said in a statement. “BLM and (the National Park Service) have made repeated attempts to resolve this matter administratively and judicially. Impoundment of cattle illegally grazing on public lands is an option of last resort.”

But Bundy said he has grazed cattle on the land for decades, and his father and father’s father did long before his 1,000 cattle roamed the area. He has long defied orders from bureaucrats he says are bent on running him out of business.

Just before the round-up began this weekend, Bundy said federal agents surrounded his 150-acre ranch. His son was arrested on Sunday in an incident involving the agents.

“They’ve been bringing men in and equipment and setting up a compound,” Bundy told FoxNews.com Monday. “They got helicopters flying low. They got snipers around the ranch. Our access to public lands has been blocked.”

“We’re not pointing guns at anyone but we’re sure getting a lot of guns pointed at us.”- Carol Bundy, wife of Nevada rancher

Bundy said he is worried BLM might try to turn the situation into another Waco or Ruby Ridge.

“Yeah, there’s a little fear in me,” Bundy said. “They’re definitely set up to do that.”

Federal officials said BLM enforcement agents were dispatched in response to statements Bundy made that the agency perceived as threats.

“When threats are made that could jeopardize the safety of the American people, the contractors and our personnel; we have the responsibility to provide law enforcement to account for their safety,” National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover told reporters Sunday.

Bundy, who does not have an attorney, spoke to FoxNews.com from Las Vegas, where he had gone early Monday morning to ask Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie for help. Last week, Gillespie told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that neither Bundy nor the BLM should resort to violence.

“No drop of human blood is worth spilling over any cow,” Gillespie said.

Back at the ranch, Bundy’s wife Carol said she and her husband were not looking for trouble.

“We’re not pointing guns at anyone, but we’re sure getting a lot of guns pointed at us,” she said.

The trouble started when Bundy stopped paying grazing fees in 1993. He said he didn’t have to because his Mormon ancestors worked the land since the 1880s, giving him rights to the land.

“We own this land,” he said, not the feds. He said he is willing to pay grazing fees but only to Clark County, not BLM.

“Years ago, I used to have 52 neighboring ranchers,” he said. “I’m the last man standing. How come? Because BLM regulated these people off the land and out of business.”

He said he won’t let the feds do that to him.

“I said, ‘No.’ Then, ‘Hell, no,’” he said.

BLM said in a statement two judges ordered Bundy to remove his cattle from Gold Butte. The Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group, said the federal action was long overdue.

“Despite having no legal right to do so, cattle from Bundy’s ranch have continued to graze throughout the Gold Butte area, competing with tortoises for food, hindering the ability of plants to recover from extensive wildfires, trampling rare plants, damaging ancient American Indian cultural sites and threatening the safety of recreationists,” Rob Mrowka, a spokesman for the group, said in a statement.

Firearm Microstamping

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) have filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on behalf of their members against the State of California in Fresno Superior Court to prevent enforcement of the state’s microstamping law. The state statute enacted in 2007, but not made effective until May 2013, requires that all semiautomatic handguns sold in the state not already on the California approved handgun roster incorporate unproven and unreliable microstamping technology.

Under this law, firearms manufacturers would have to micro laser-engrave a gun’s make, model and serial number on two distinct parts of each handgun, including the firing pin so that, in theory, this information would be imprinted on the cartridge casing when the pistol is fired.

“There is no existing microstamping technology that meets the requirement of this ill-considered law. It is not technologically possible to microstamp two locations in the gun and have the required information imprint onto the cartridge casing. In addition, the current state of the technology cannot reliably, consistently and legibly imprint on the cartridge primer the required identifying information from the tip of the firing pin, the only possible location where it is possible to micro-laser engrave the information, said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel.

“The holder of the patent for this technology himself has written that there are problems with it and that further study is warranted before it is mandated. A National Academy of Science review, forensic firearms examiners and a University of California at Davis study reached the same conclusion and the technical experts in the firearms industry agree,” Keane said. “Manufacturers cannot comply with a law the provisions of which are invalid, that cannot be enforced and that will not contribute to improving public safety. Today, we are seeking injunctive relief against this back-door attempt to prevent the sale of new or upgraded semiautomatic handguns to law-abiding citizens in California.”

In 2007, California Assembly Bill 1471 was passed and signed into law requiring microstamping on internal parts of new semiautomatic pistols. The legislation provided that this requirement would only became effective if the California Department of Justice certified that the microstamping technology is available to more than one manufacturer unencumbered by patent restrictions. The California legislature subsequently reorganized certain statutes concerning the regulation of firearms, including the microstamping law in 2010. On May 17, 2013, Attorney General Kamala D. Harris provided such certification.

Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger have separately announced that they would no longer be selling new or improved semiautomatic handgun models in California because of the impossibility of complying with the new law.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 68,000 foreign nationals who had criminal convictions last year instead of pursuing deportation, according to newly uncovered documents — a statistic one senator said represents an enforcement “crisis.”

The internal documents were obtained and published by the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based group that advocates stricter immigration enforcement. According to the documents and the group’s analysis, ICE agents reported encountering 193,000 “criminal aliens” in 2013, but only targeted 125,000 for deportation.

A total of 67,879 were released.

CIS called it a “large-scale abuse of authority.”

“The Obama administration’s deliberate obstruction of immigration enforcement, in which tens of thousands of criminal aliens are released instead of removed, is threatening the well-being of American communities,” study author Jessica Vaughan said in a statement. “It’s not a matter of if, but how many families will suffer harm as a result.”

The statistics challenge repeated claims by the administration that, when weighing whether to pursue deportation, they are prioritizing cases where the illegal immigrant in question has been convicted of a crime.

Indeed, the documents show that those with a criminal record are far more likely to be targeted for deportation than those without one. But they also show the agency is letting thousands who have a criminal record off the hook.

The CIS report said factors such as “family relationships, political considerations, or attention from advocacy groups” are likely helping to “trump criminal convictions as a factor leading to deportation.”

The report further deepens concerns about the course of an ongoing internal review of the administration’s enforcement and deportation policies. Groups like CIS have warned that this could chip away at an enforcement structure that already has been weakened.

“The preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that immigration enforcement in America has collapsed,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said. “Even those with criminal convictions are being released. [The Department of Homeland Security] is a department in crisis.”

Earlier this month, a DHS spokesman said the internal review of immigration enforcement is a process that is “ongoing” and will be done “expeditiously.”

“Since taking office, the Secretary has made clear that he shares the President’s commitment of enforcing our immigration laws effectively and sensibly, in line with our values,” the spokesman said. “As part of that effort he has been taking a hard look at these tough issues, meeting with a range of stakeholders and employees and already has been assessing if there are areas where we can further align our enforcement policies with our goal of sound law enforcement practice that prioritizes public safety.”

The ICE documents did not break down the types of criminal activity that those allowed to stay in the country had been convicted of. But the CIS report noted a 2012 report by House Republicans that tracked 26,000 illegal and criminal immigrants who were re-arrested and found they were tied to 58,000 crimes and violations — much of them drunk-driving arrests, but also major criminal offenses like murder and rape.

CIS also reported that in 2013, ICE charged just 195,000 of the 722,000 “potentially deportable aliens” they encountered.

Further, the agency reported more than 870,000 illegal immigrants have been ordered removed but have remained in the country anyway.
