Tom Coburn: Only 3 in 100 ILLEGALS will ever Face Deportation

Department of Homeland Security officials will spend nearly $61 billion in 2015 and provide jobs for more than 240,000 people, but odds are it won't fulfill any of the missions it was given when Congress created it in 2003, according to the Senate's most ardent foe of government waste, fraud and abuse.
"Based upon the available evidence, DHS is not successfully executing any of its five main missions. Many of DHS’s programs, in fact, are ineffective and should be reconsidered," said Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., in his final report as ranking minority member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.
Coburn announced his retirement at the end of the 113th Congress in 2014 due to health issues. He was first elected to the Senate in 2004 and would have been heavily favored to win a third term in 2016 had he sought re-election.
The DHS was created in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 and combined operations of 22 federal agencies, including Customs and Border Protection, the Secret Service, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard.
Among the department's biggest missions are terrorism prevention and protective security, transportation security, border security, immigration enforcement, cybersecurity and disaster recovery.
Despite its huge budget and workforce, though, the Oklahoma senator said DHS is "yielding little value for the nation’s counterterrorism efforts. Independent reviews — including audits and investigations by watchdogs — show that DHS’s intelligence and analysis programs, including its state and local fusion centers and other information sharing programs, are ineffective or providing little value.

That's right. So we already have amnesty, making it a moot point - unless someone runs on full deportation of illegals. Then we have something to talk about, otherwise, it's time to assimilate.
