The fact that more than two million illegal aliens are roaming the United States despite deportation orders is a good example of weak laws, says the spokesman for an immigration watchdog.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute recently obtained data from the Department of Homeland Security that revealed there are currently over one million illegal aliens remaining in the country who have already been served deportation orders.
In addition there are roughly 1.1 million others from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala who have "pending final orders" and are close to receiving deportation orders.
The data shows over 2.5 million illegals have either been ordered deported or are awaiting deportation orders.
Dave Ray, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the parent organization of the IRLI, says the system is overwhelmed with non-deported illegals because asylum laws are being “abused” by people who know they will eventually be denied.
“Then they disappear,” he says, “into the interior of the U.S."
When the illegals are finally issued deportation orders, it is a daunting task for immigration authorities to find these people because, according to Ray, they use false identification with fake addresses so it becomes a needle-and-haystack screnario.
“And in this case,” he tells OneNewsNow, “there are two million missing needles."
