Skip to comments.ICE blamed for Texas parolee law delay
Posted on 10/29/2011 11:55:39 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
The state has been unable to enforce a new law designed to increase the deportations of illegal immigrants from the Texas prison system amid concerns that federal immigration officials are unprepared to handle the anticipated influx of convicted criminals, state officials said.
Under the new law, which was scheduled to take effect Sept. 1, state prisoners who are granted parole and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials must either be deported or leave the country voluntarily - or risk being returned to state custody to serve out the remainder of their sentences.
The law was crafted to address a vexing problem identified by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, which reported granting parole to some illegal immigrants and turning them over to ICE - only to later learn that they were not removed from the country, said state Rep. Jerry Madden, R-Plano.
...ICE union officials said part of the problem lies in a shortage of immigration judges assigned to hear cases in Huntsville. The immigration court system is run by a separate agency, the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which declined comment on Thursday.
Rissie Owens, chair of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, said that unless ICE has finished its removal proceedings, board members can't be sure that "those they vote to release are actually deported and not released into our communities where they may be a threat to pubic safety."
ICE data shows that roughly one in five of the 5,000 illegal immigrants discharged annually lacks a final removal order clearing the way for deportation.
...Under the new state law, ICE can no longer release detainees with criminal convictions, and instead must either remove them from the country, house them in its own federal detention system or return them to the custody of TDCJ.

I was proud to sign legislation requiring a photo voter ID to vote in order to protect the integrity of our elections. And for the obvious security reasons, I vetoed legislation to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens. There is no homeland security without border security. Let me repeat that, there is no security without border security. And make no mistake about it, what we are seeing south of our border is nothing short of a war being waged by these narco-terrorists. They represent a clear and a present danger to our country - they are spreading violence to American cities; they are peddling poisons to our children. In the face of this threat, we shouldnt take any operations off the table, including security operations in cooperation with the Mexican government, as we did with Columbia some years ago. You cant have liberty - you cant have opportunity - you cant have prosperity, without security."...... [Values Voters Summit -- Oct 7, 2011]
Fully 69% of Americans in the latest IBD/TIPP poll say they dont favor states giving in-state college tuition to illegal residents while charging higher fees for legal, out-of-state residents. Just 22% support such a policy.
73% of Republicans are opposed vs. 20% in favor.
Independents have even stronger views: 74%-15%. Even Democrats are strongly opposed 58%-32%.
In fact, a majority of every major subgroup opposes giving illegals in-state tuition rates men and women, rich and poor, urban and rural. Hispanics, who have more conflicted views over illegal immigration than is commonly known, are opposed, 54%-28%. Blacks, who often see illegal immigrants as rivals for jobs, are the most opposed, 80%-12%.
And Perry told them the had no heart because they dared to disagree with him. That was really, really stupid.
IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.
IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.
If you truly believed that you wouldn't hit every thread and call up your anti-Perry posse to join the pile on pissing party.
I wonder if states could impose voluntarily leaving the US as a *condition* for parole? As with the Arizona program, where voluntary deportees get a free flight to Mexico City, it takes both the federal government and involuntary deportation off the table.
When is Rick going to man up and be accountable for wet nursing illegals instead of throwing blame at every turn like a whiny little punk?
lol! Pissing party? Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?
I truly believe RINO Rick Perry's campaign is history. That doesn't mean I can't or shouldn't enjoy watching him flounder like a fish out of water in his vain attempt to regain the support he pushed away when he called them heartless.
I do thank you for the entertainment you are providing, though. It is quite laudable.
Oh, and I don't "hit every thread". I may hit many but not "every". I would be happy to if you would ping me to them. :-)
How low does he have to go? He was dead last in one poll.
When's he gonna man up---and get the message voters are sending?
He should go back to Texas and hug a few illegals.
As long as he is spending other peoples' money (something he is good at) he will stay in. And as long as he's going after the other RINO in the race, Mitt Romney, I think he should. But when he goes after Herman Cain, the only man standing between Romney and the Republican nomination then it is time for Ricardo to pack it in. I really don't think he is that smart, though. He does come across as being one of the least intelligent candidates in the field.
... and call up your anti-Perry posse to join the pile on pissing party.
Bur 'series', that posting is kind of funny. However the way Perry is going -- or actually NOT going -- I think it's time we start getting the Whaaambulances ready for the Perrybots.
(I wonder what kind of Cheese they'd like with their WHINES)
It would be nice if people were able to discuss the article rather then come on here and act like High Schoolers every time the word Texas comes up in a headline.
Perry is not going to quit, so go blow smoke up another candidates thread.
The two of you are great and right on.
” How low does he have to go? He was dead last in one poll.

Ricky is too vain to quit apparently. He’s so vain, he probably thinks this thread is about him : )

You owe me a keyboard. Plus, now I have Coca-Cola coming out of my nose.
Any day gets better with a Carly Simon slam. Almost better than being Rick Rolled... which is what the remaining 7% who are pulling for this fool are getting from Texas Ricky.
Have you noticed how Perry is pulling a page from Obama's book? He's blaming everyone else BUT himself! Illegals in Texas? Feds fault. Affirmative action for illegals? State's Rights. Parolee delay? ICE. Gardasil? 'I hate cancer'.
Yeah---vote-crazed Rick's living on hope---plus Mexico's promise to fix the election for him in exchange for billions in foreign aid from a (gag) Perry WH.
The self-absorbed powermongering dud may not quit of his own volition....but voters are showing him the door whenever they get the chance.
Whoever thought up Rick's newest ploy---avoid debates at all costs---is looking at a quick trip out of campaign hdq, as well.
Kinda reminds me of the losing 2008 strategy used by Ricky's pal and business partner----Rooty Giuliani----who is in the same mold as La Raza Rick---maybe even moldier (/sarc).
Rooty was on all fours, all puckered up, sucking away at hyphenated voting blocs and declaring he was not going to enter early primaries and caucuses-----AT THE SAME TIME Giuli entered and lost every single one held.
Giuli said he was "saving himself" for Florida----so he campaigned there 63 days straight and came in a distant third.
Ricky, like Rooty, forgot you have to have delegates to stay in the game. Rooty spent millions----and was forced out b/c he had no delegates.
La Raza Rick won't take responsibility.
Illegals in Texas? Feds fault.
Affirmative action for illegals? State's Rights.
In-state tuition? His unbigoted heart is in the right place.
Parolee delay? ICE.
Gardasil EO? Merck Big Buck contributions made him do it.
” now I have Coca-Cola coming out of my nose. “
Been there, done that....Hertz, don’t it ?
” Have you noticed how Perry is pulling a page from Obama’s book? He’s blaming everyone else BUT himself! Illegals in Texas? Feds fault. Affirmative action for illegals? State’s Rights. Parolee delay? ICE. Gardasil? ‘I hate cancer’. “
Oh HECK yeah, I noticed : )
This is just another nanny state overreaction, period.
He’s pulling a lot of pages from the Obama book.
Not falling for it. But its a shame you have.
Instead of going after those who oppose your boy, why don't you go after Ricky for enacting a knee-jerk law, and then admitting didn't do enough research? Why don't you ask him to repeal the law?
I’ll take your post as an admission that saying “I hate cancer” is not blaming others.
‘I hate cancer’ is blaming cancer for a stupid decision. Get it? Good.
Your logic is pathetic. Saying I hate cancer to support a decision is not blaming others for my decision, any more than saying I hate wealth redistribution as a justification for tax cuts blames others.
Get it? Good.
Riiight. Keep projecting, Sparky. And keep supporting nanny state, alarmist liberal tactics. I’ll support conservatism EVERY TIME.
BWAHAHAHA! Now you’re just silly. I’ll explain this slowly. Saying “I need to give instate tuition to illegals because of ICE” is blaming others. Saying “I support vaccines to prevent cancer” is not blaming others, any more than saying I support tax cuts because I dislike wealth redistribution blames others. If you can’t make the distinction and admit you’re wrong, we’re done. I don’t waste time with people unable to admit they or their preferred candidate is wrong.
Which is why you’re sticking your head in the sand for Perry??? HAHAHAHAHAHAA. You’re pathetic. You can’t tell the difference between conservatism and nanny state liberalism. How sad for you.
Why don't you explain to all the conservatives here what exactly is conservative about mandating gardasil.
I’m having trouble keeping track. First it was preventing cancer is blaming others. Then it was preventing cancer is nanny-statism. Now preventing cancer is playing on people’s fears. Thank you for once again proving that your original point was incorrect and you can’t defend it.
IOW, I'm stupid for not researching it, but you're heartless and must like cancer if you oppose the law.
Thank you for once again proving that Perry’s decision had nothing to do with BLAMING OTHERS, which was the whole point of your original post.
Wow are you thick. Let me give it to you in simple terms: He mandated gardasil because HE hates cancer.
Exactly. Perry mandated Gardasil because he hates cancer. You’ve provided definitive proof that your original statement is false. He clearly doesn’t blame others for that decision. Thanks for the help proving your original statement wrong.
Keep telling yourself that.
Please tell me what is conservative about mandating gardasil.
You mean let’s change the subject and stop talking about your silly original post that said saying “I hate cancer” is blaming others? I’ll be happy to change the subject if you’re willing to admit you were wrong and that saying “I hate cancer” really is justification for the HPV vaccine that requires no “blaming others.” Like I said, I have no interest in discussing anything with someone who believes that they and their preferred candidate can do no wrong.
I stand by my original post that Perry blames everyone else (and everything) for his bad decisions.
If “I hate cancer” is “blaming others,” then there is no justification that could possibly be given for any vaccine that would fall outside of “blaming others.” Like I said, you’ve defined “blaming others” so broadly that nothing Perry said would fall outside of your predefined position. Which would be fine, if you hadn’t tried to hide your predisposition in a claim of somehow finding a character flaw in Perry.
Perry has many character flaws, placing blame everywhere except where it belongs is only one of them.
So justify any vaccine for any disease if trying to defeat the complication from that disease is “blaming others”.
