On Wednesday a “reporter” for Vox claimed President Donald Trump’s criticisms of former President Barack Hussein Obama’s “catch-and-release” policies are based on myths.

The president has long maintained that the practice of releasing illegal immigrants into our communities after we either catch them or they apply for asylum is foolhardy, as it allows illegals an easy opportunity to hightail their asses into the heartland and then disappear.

As noted by the Center for Immigration Studies last year, “American immigration courts have the highest failure to appear rates of any courts in the country. Over the last 20 years, 37 percent of all aliens free pending trial failed to appear for their hearings.”

Instead they slipped into our communities and neighborhoods, where they then build lives here as what the left calls “undocumented Americans.”
