WASHINGTON TIMES — Homeland Security agents release criminal aliens back onto the streets without strict monitoring because their home countries refuse to take them back, the department’s inspector general concluded in a report that exposes serious flaws in the system.
The report, released this week, was prompted by the 2015 killing of a young woman, Casey Chadwick, at the hands of Jean Jacques, a Haitian man who had served prison time for attempted murder but whose home country refused to take him back.
Investigators said agents did try to deport Jacques but once Haiti refused, their hands were tied by a 2001 Supreme Court decision that limited the amount of time an immigrant could be detained.
Once they released Jacques, agents failed to keep close track of him and gave up on efforts to deport him.
Within months of his 2015 release from parole, he murdered Chadwick, police say.
