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.

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.
The “they” in my post was directed at the illegal aliens. We don’t need their encroachment on yet another segment of the economy.
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.
They should all be released to save money - on the south side of the Mexican border.
They had no intention of deporting them anyway
Be warned that the Main Stream Propaganda Media will pull out all the stops to report the End of the World as we know it, the Abyss and the Apocalypse, all kinds of bad happenings and sob stories.
Just ignore it all.
IMPEACH OBAMA. NOW. He is endangering the lives of all of us with his political hostage taking and THREATS.. Like this event. A THREAT to all of us.
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?
How much of his political agenda will he implement under the guise of spending cuts???
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.
Why not cut those who have been on Unemployment longer than a year. Seriously not a job in a YEAR?
Ah yes, the Mariel boatlift. A stupendous decision by Jimmy Carter that worked out so well for this woman...
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
I was not aware that immigrants were ever detained. I think the headline is lying a wee bit.
