U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offered the pilot program in five cities, giving illegal immigrants facing court orders to leave the country 90 days to plan their departure and coordinate travel with relatives instead of facing the prospect of being arrested, detained and deported.
ICE will end its "Scheduled Departure" program when the trial period concludes Friday, Jim Hayes, acting director of ICE's detention and removal operations, told The Associated Press.
It's just absolutely scary that these bureaucratic idiots have your taxpayer $$$ to p*** away on the stupidest of ideas, yet they can't figure out how to string a fence from point A to point B that requires the collective intelligence of Ms. Jones' kindergarten class!
