Wave of Immigrants Released Ahead of Automatic Budget Cuts
New Yawk Times ^ | February 26, 2013 | KIRK SEMPLE

Posted on 02/26/2013 9:06:13 AM PST by tje

In a highly unusual move, federal immigration officials have released a wave of detainees from immigration detention centers around the country in an effort to save money as automatic budget cuts loom in Washington, officials said.

The government has not dropped the deportation cases against the immigrants, however: The detainees have been freed on supervised release while their cases continue in court, officials said.

Totally predictable.

Obama is intent on causing as much chaos and pain as possible picking his “cuts” strategically. Pain,suffering,misery,chaos,destruction. Obama feeds on it, needs it to gain strength.

Then blame the evil Republicans.

Why not just release a wave of federal employees from our bloated bureaucracy? For example, couldn’t the cuts easily be met by getting rid of the salaries of x-number of employees from the GSA, the Labor Dep’t, the Education Dep’t, the Energy Dep’t, etc? Most of these departments are useless anyhow, and surely they have enough non-essential personnel (is that redundant?) which can be cut to meet cost-cutting goals.

And if they got jobs fracking, they could do something productive for a change.

Once they start seeing taxes come OUT of their paychecks, they might be on our side, too.

1. Reduce the number of Border Patrol agents.

2. Release the illegals already caught & awaiting deportation.

3. Do your best to remove all firearms from the hands of the American citizens who have a right to be here & who are not trouble makers living off the taxpayers.

Result:

A Second American Revolution.....

Bring it on!!!

How would that punish We the People for our disobedience? He wants more of our wages. If we don't give him what he wants, he will see to it that millions of our fellow citizens suffer. He will punish the American people until they obey him.

Now wait a minute. If federal immigration laws can be ignored and nothing happens, can't federal gun control laws be ignored, too? If not, why not? If federal laws don't matter, why would people have to obey any of them?

I don`t think people understand what their feet are standing in.

The USA is the Beast System,

Revelation 13:4

” Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? “

Want to go up against Obama?

He has TRILLIONS of dollars to either fight you with through lawsuit or regulation or can withhold it and inflict chaos that way.

Want to go up against the Beast by yourself and think your tough?
You`ll get Wacoed, Ruby Ridged or droned.

Want to try change the Beast politically?
It will subdue you and break your will.

Are you a foreign country and want to resist the influence of the Beast?
The pressure brought to bear with tacticts from bribing with billions of dollars to arming insurgents will break you.

My advice is simple:

Matt; 10:23

“But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another...”

Keep your head down. Don`t talk to strangers. Live in a relatively safe place.Mind your own business. Interact with the Beast System as little as possible.

Never, EVER underestimate your enemy, period. This event is just a part of a series of events meant to break the will of the enemy (us). Quit dwelling on the small stuff, and look at the big picture. These people want power, and they are plenty willing to do anything and everything to get it and keep it. The interests of the american people are irrevelavent. They perceive the population as a means to an end, to be disposed of, or enslaved as they see fit to their agenda. America is going to get the same hard lesson that the Russians were given almost a century before. As Ayn Rand said,”you’re not dealing with a bunch of boy scouts here. These people want power and they mean it”, or something to that effect.

The “they” in my reply was the government bureaucrats that the poster I was responding to, mentioned. Not the “immigrants” I think your post is directed toward.

Well, there was no “they” in your post, but I did think you were replying to something other than my post.

I do agree with you, the jobs we can create with American ingenuity should NOT be available to illegal aliens. I would add Unionists to the list, too. They have single-handedly destroyed productivity in this country, and I see no reason for them to benefit from a productivity resurgance.

Maybe this will backfire on Obama. If there are enough people let loose to adversely affect the lives of citizens in a sudden and noticeable way, maybe they will see the wisdom of tight border control.

You're the President of the United States. Faced with cuts, do one of the following:

a) Release detained illegal aliens into society at large

b) Cut services to illegal aliens already at large

0bama chose a), which increases State and Local debts? WTF?

I agree this could be a tipping point, or the start of one.

NO WAY this was necessary. To put the lives of citizens at risk for a political ploy could really backfire on him.

Sure, the press will minimize it, but it is the President's obligation to make good decisions and prioritize. His priority is handing out money for democrat votes. Couldn't care less about anything else. Letting illegal immigrants loose in the streets is a very risky gamble. So much for Big Sis’!

If the other cabinet officials follow in suit and make cuts in ways that directly harm the public (without cutting less critical areas), this could all blow up.

Anyone remember this movie?

(1966) Based on a true event in WWII

Germany is retreating in Europe, the Allies are advancing on Paris. Hitler orders his generals to destroy the city, rather than losing it to the enemy. They even rigged major landmarks like the Eiffel Tower with esplosives.

That's what this situation feels like to me - Obama would rather destroy the country than alter his agenda.

Why didn't Paris burn? The General in charge of defending/destroying the city disobeyed Hitler's order and surrendered instead

"Unusual" as in done for political maneuvering rather than objective necessity. They should call it what it is.

This is like 1980’s Mariel Boatlift when Jimmah Carter announced he’d receive any and all Cubans who made it ashore. Castro emptied the insane asylums and prisons and herded the inmates onto boats headed for our shores to become Jimmah’s problems (or rather Florida’s).

O has been itching for an “excuse” to loose all the illegals unluckey enough to get caught and (un)released. What a total bastard!

Maybe his aunt and uncle will get to stay here also?

No one will be able to tell the difference....

Dallas Texas 2006:

500,000 illegals and their supporters so emboldened by Bush, they marched thorough our cities and towns all over the U.S., by the millions, making demands and threats while pushing foreign flags in your faces...
