    The Department of Homeland Security must remove the thousands of criminal immigrants slated for release from federal prison next month from the U.S., according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).

    Some 2,000 convicted criminal aliens are expected to be released in November as part of the United States Sentencing Commission’s retroactive reduction of prison time for certain drug offenders.

    In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson dated Tuesday, Goodlatte seeks assurances that these criminal aliens will be removed from the country and not walking freely on American streets.

    “Please confirm whether my expectation will be met and that the Department of Homeland Security is committed to ridding our streets of aliens peddling dangerous and illicit drugs to our children,” Goodlatte wrote.

    The Virginia lawmaker highlighted testimony Johnson offered during a July committee hearing in regard to these sentencing changes and the early release of alien felons.

    “I’m aware of this issue,” Goodlatte quoted Johnson’s testimony in the letter. “I’m aware of the adjustment to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. I’m aware that a number of individuals will be released as a result. I’m aware that a number of them are probably undocumented, and we’ve been working with DOJ to do the most effective thing for public safety in that regard.”

    According to Goodlatte, Johnson’s acknowledgement requires action and DHS must take responsibility for these high priority criminal aliens and ensure they are removed.

    “Given your response, I fully expect that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will issue a detainer with the [Federal Bureau of Prisons] for each alien expected to be released pursuant to Amendment 782, and that each alien will be taken into custody by ICE, as required by the Immigration and Nationality Act, for purposes of initiating removal proceedings or to execute the removal order of each alien who is already subject to a final order of removal from the United States,” he wrote.

    Additionally Goodlatte pressed for more information about the criminal aliens slated for release, including details about DHS’ expectations for their removal proceedings.

    GOP Members Warn: 'America About to Break Every Immigration Record'

    "Did any American vote for this extreme and untested policy?"

    Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat are warning that America is on the cusp of "unprecedented levels of immigration" over the next 10 years and said if politicians don't start curbing the influx, there won't be much future left for the American people.

    The dire warning came in a hard-hitting memo to the GOP that began with: America is about to break every known immigration record. And yet you are unlikely to hear a word about it.

    Both Sessions and Brat agree that too many politicians recklessly push "immigration reform" in their campaign promises without knowing what it should actually look like.

    Though they believe it's something that is needed, they shout it from the rooftops without ever considering what effect immigration is having on schools, hospitals, police, jobs, poverty, you name it.

    And at the end of the day, it isn't even apparent that they care what happens.

    The senator and congressman define true immigration reform as something that actually benefits Americans first before it trickles down to immigrants. But they've noticed the exact opposite in the nation's capitol:

    [I]n Washington, immigration reform has devolved into a euphemism for legislation that opens America’s borders, floods her labor markets and gives corporations the legal right to import new foreign

    workers to replace their existing employees at lower pay.

    Part of the Senate's "gang of eight" immigration bill in 2013, still lobbied by many immigration "reformers," would in fact usher in low-wage H-1B workers to replace American workers, offer "the

    largest supply of visas" for those low-skilled immigrants, transfer bargaining power and wealth from employee to employer, not to mention that Democrats would gain "more political power."

    "This is not immigration reform," the memo states. "This is the dissolution of the nation state, of the principle that a government exists to serve its own people."

    The letter takes time to detail that middle-class growth in the 20th century was at its highest when immigration was at its lowest. Time and time again, history proves this.

    But since Congress passed looser immigration laws in 1965, the foreign-born population has quadrupled to over 42 million today and Sessions and Brat warn that another 14 million immigrants are

    heading this way over the next 10 years.

    "[T]hat’s almost five times the number of students who will graduate from public high school in America this year," their letter states.

    "Assuming no law is passed to reduce immigration, the Census Bureau estimates that, in less than eight years’ time, the percentage of U.S. residents born in a foreign-country will be the highest level in our history.

    And the bureau estimates — again, assuming Congress does not reduce immigration rates — that the foreign-born population share will keep rising to new all-time records for as long as they can project."

    According to Pew Research projections over the next 50 years, there will be enough new immigrants and their children to fill 25 cities the size of Los Angeles.

    "Did any American vote for this extreme and untested policy?" the letter asks rhetorically. "Yet our politicians who have created this policy do print or speak a word about it.

    This remains the forbidden conversation."

    And so Sessions and Brat are asking for actual immigration reform that puts Americans first and offers limits to how many immigrants are allowed in. That is what will show true compassion to

    America's struggling families, they argue, not the faux compassion of an open borders policy.

    Lettered on our nation’s seal are the words E Pluribus Unum. Out of many, one. It does a disservice to both the country and the immigrant when we bring in larger numbers than we can

    reasonably expect to assimilate.

    If we allow our immigration system to replicate in America the same failed conditions which people have left, we are hurting the country and any who would seek to enter it in the future.

    After nearly half a century of massive immigration it is time to turn our attention to our own residents. It is time to help our own workers, families and communities — immigrant and U.S.-born — rise together into the middle class.

    Anyone running for the White House who cannot publicly commit to these principles should consider a different occupation. Americans should no longer have to wonder for whom their leaders work.
