Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio was a guest Friday on “Your World with Cavuto,” and questioned White House statistics on the deportation of illegal immigrants, saying the numbers are “smoke and mirrors.”
“I always had a feeling that a lot of these people that we put on hold — turn over to ICE — really were not being deported,” Arpaio told host Neil Cavuto. “I did a survey in the last three months and found out that of the over 1,200 illegal aliens in our jails, one-third, or about 400, that were released in the past have criminal records.”
“And they’re still being booked back into the jail!” he continued. “Six, seven, eight times. Keep coming back! How come they’re not being deported?

America’s toughest sheriff wondered if illegal immigrants are “being let out the back door” when his department turns them over to ICE.
“They’re rounded up, they’re booked into my jails for criminal violations, we put holds on them, they’re turned over to ICE,” he explained. “And how come they keep coming back in the last several years? They should be back where they came from, or they’re being let out the back door! You can’t have it both ways. How come they keep coming back to jail?”
Arpaio pointed out that Jeh Johnson, the new head of Homeland Security, said recently that the Obama administration is counting those stopped at the border as being deported, when other administrations never included these numbers.
“So it’s smoke and mirrors going on, that has been going on,” he concluded.
