ICE: A snapshot of released criminals who were supposed to be deported

On April 25, Immigration and Customs Enforcement provided an updated look at the criminals it released in the United States from 2012 to February because the agency was unable to deport them. Typically in these cases, foreign countries refuse to repatriate their citizens. ICE says they are forced to release them in the United States because the Supreme Court has barred the agency from jailing immigrants indefinitely. These are the homelands of the criminals released during this period.
