WASHINGTON (AP) Government officials decided to release more than 2,000 immigrants facing deportation in 2013 strictly for budget reasons and didn't tell the Homeland Security secretary about the plan, according to an oversight report.

The lack of communication led the Obama administration to wrongly deny for weeks that 2,228 immigrants facing deportation had been released, according to a harshly critical, 41-page report Tuesday from the Homeland Security Department's inspector general.

Report: White House didn't OK immigrant releases

This is what we've got for a POTUS? Sheesh!

Who knows what this knob head approves. To be honest, I really do believe everyone else on the payroll at the WH is making the decisions and the leader is out golfing and fundraising.

Everyone is a Chief now and there's no more Indians.
When an obtuse memo comes down to "cut your budget" with no specifics then it's left in the hands of subordinates who make their own decisions.

Yes the WH is to blame because "cut your budget" came from them.
And it was probably worded vaguely on purpose so it could not be traced back to them.

I describe this administration as "sly as a fox". They know exactly what they are doing.

From the tory.......

Data published by the government in May of this year revealed that the Homeland Security Department released 36,007 convicted criminal immigrants in 2013 who are facing deportation.
That total includes those accounting for 193 homicide and 426 sexual assault convictions.
The immigrants nearly all still face deportation and are required to check in with immigration authorities while their deportation cases are pending.

Somehow, I don't see them "checking in" with immigration authorities.
Just think, these criminals are still out there walking the streets !

They are out there walking the streets, probably many of them planning their next crime, laughing about how stupid our government is. Telling their buddies, You killed someone? That's OK man, you're illegal!
