A spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Gillian Christensen, says the immigrants were being held around the country and being released and "placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release."

No surprise from this administration since Obama doesn't want any illegals deported that don't have a felony conviction anyway. Obama is also willing to compromise the security of our borders to get what he wants. Any decent president wouldn't compromise our national security to obtain spending cuts. National security should be a priority.

Sequestration is the cause, and it leaves no choice.

something that hasn't happened yet is the cause?

how odd.


Quote:
"It's abhorrent that President (Barack) Obama is releasing criminals into our communities to promote his political agenda on sequestration," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte. "By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the Administration is needlessly endangering American lives. It also undermines our efforts to come together with the Administration and reform our nation's immigration laws."

Sending them home of course was a choice but Obama truly believes unemployed Americans are too lazy to work and will keep extending unemployment handouts indefinitely while he releases these illegals and encourages many more to come.

No, just stating the facts. Corps and gov't must prepare to take action for an event due to start within 48 hours.

This is so ridiculous. It's quite obvious that this entire administration is extremely lax on the problem of illegal immigration ... so their attitude is go ahead & release all these lawbreakers to roam the streets, and blame it on the budget cuts. To hell with border security!

This isn't really all that surprising considering who is running DHS. Janet Napolitano is pathetic. She was horrible when she was Governor of Arizona ... thanks to her, the state faced a huge budget deficit & was on the edge of bankruptcy. She always has been wimpy about the illegal alien problem. During her run as Arizona Governor, the influx of illegals was out of control. With Janet at the helm of DHS, I feel like our borders are very INsecure. So much for these wonderful federal agencies!

He doesn't care a rat's patoot if they have felony convictions or not! ICE rep's are calling Arizona Sheriffs and apologizing for the already released 300 detainees, who have among their numbers, convictions for everything from burglary to rape.

Releasing them with supervison equates to nothing for a very large group of people with no visible means of support OTHER than crime, does it?

Meanwhile your DHS in the proxy of TSA are still treating legitimate, entering visitors to demeaning and intrusive jewel jangling in the name of security checks while even more of these criminals are climbing over your basement fence.

What a fudged up country being run by a cabal of retarded misfits!
