From Fox News:
Long after they were ordered out of the country, thousands of criminal aliens from places like China, Cuba, Vietnam and Pakistan remain free in the United States to commit new crimes because their home countries refuse to take them back.
For years, this unique problem percolated under the political radar. But recent crimes by immigrant felons have lawmakers scrambling to punish nations that refuse to repatriate their own citizens. The Obama administration and many Democrats in Congress, however, are blocking punitive legislation, preferring to let the State Department handle the issue diplomatically.
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, is leading the charge in Congress to change the law, pushing to withhold visas to nations that refuse to take back their own.
"I don't know why the State Department seems to take the side of foreign countries over our own American interest in the United States," Poe said, urging the U.S. to tell those countries: "Look, you take these people back or the consequence is going to be no visas for your nation."
Under a 2001 Supreme Court decision, U.S. immigration officials are only permitted to hold someone for six months after their incarceration. So when a home nation refuses to take back their national, the U.S. is required to release them -- no matter what they've done.
The issue recently came to Poe's attention after three especially heinous crimes were committed by men ordered deported years ago.

the law ,according to eric holder and barack,the big D.C. voice.
Then cast them adrift in a canoe with 2 days food supply in the middle of the ocean.
Food for thought...eh?
Food for the sharks too!
If we had a decent immigration security system in place, we'd be able to weed out criminals before they entered the USA!
Subcontract these criminals to the Russians.
It would cost us less to throw them into a gulag than the $40,000+ it costs us taxpayers to incarcerate each one of these bums!
Maybe Viet Nam or Nigeria, etc. can do it for less.
I say....shop around the world...and privatize our prison system by farming it out to foreign countries.
Our State Department should just refuse to issue any visas to the nationals of these countries until they agree to accept their citizen criminals back.
a sort of a prisoner exchange program...eh?
OR...like Fidel Castro we could empty our prisons by unloading boats off the shores of China, etc.
There ya go...
problem solved several ways!
Send them to the mideast..........
I'd give them 3 days of food
Excellent solution! Withhold Visas.
Keep em here. Bloomberg wants to use them as cheap labor,
You take 'em in....LIBERAL ASS HOLE!
We need to institute a "Devils Island" penal colony and resettle some dead areas in the USA with convictsla la Australia.
The U.S. Virgin Islands...maybe?
I understand it's become a dangerous hell-hole there.
