About Those Angry Trump Voters

I think the post two below this one establishes well enough what I think of Donald Trump. I find his comments about Mexicans to be stupid, not so much that they're racist (what he said was clumsy more than hateful), but just that they're dumb. Mexico isn't "sending" us anyone -- and since when has any country "sent" us its best and brightest? Your poor, your tired, your huddled masses -- that's who comes here, at least when we're talking immigrant waves. The question is, do they begin to rise when they get here, integrating and assimilating and becoming Americans -- and that is the question it drives me crazy that no one focuses on -- because we'd have to look at our own policies. (Link is to me on this subject in 2006.) 

That said, here is what Trump is tapping into like the genius self-promoter that he is. Prior to reading that piece I really had no idea the extent of ICE malfeasance or the problem of "sanctuary cities." 

For instance: 
It got little notice, but on May 28, Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, admitted in a letter to Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that between fiscal years 2010 and 2014, the Obama administration had released “121 unique criminal aliens who had an active [deportation] case at the time of release and were subsequently charged with homicide-related offenses.”Think about that: 121 times over the past four years, the administration has released an illegal immigrant with prior criminal convictions who went on to be charged with murder. That is one every 12 days.
Every 12 days, the Administration releases a murder into the wild? When you put it that way....And the release rate is even higher for sex offenders: 
ICE also does not routinely notify local authorities when it releases illegal immigrants who are sex offenders. Last month, a Boston Globe investigation found that between 2008 and 2012, ICE released 424 sex offenders into communities across the country — including “convicted rapists, child molesters and kidnappers” — and that “immigration officials have released them without making sure they register with local authorities as sex offenders.” The paper further found that “At least 34 of the 424 released sex offenders . . . were back in jail as of last month, state records show, some for heinous crimes committed after ICE released them.”
If we're going to label college students who got drunk and hooked up with an equally drunk girl who now regrets the dalliance sex offenders, couldn't we do the same for, you know, actual sex offenders?
