House Homeland Security Committee Chair demands answers from ICE on illegal immigrant release
Daily Caller ^ | February 27, 2013 | Caroline May

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul is demanding answers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton regarding the release of illegal immigrants from detention centers.

In a letter addressed to Morton and carbon copied to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano Wednesday, McCaul expresses concern about news that ICE has started releasing detained illegal immigrants, and in doing so is failing to enforce the law.

“This decision reflects the lack of resource prioritization within the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement and is indicative of the Department’s weak stance on National Security,” McCaul wrote.

I love that the White House said they have nothing to do with it. Seriously, ICE is releasing a third of their detainees and they didn’t mention it to the Secretary? I don’t think so.

Another illegal decision by the White Hut, Impeachable even, yet the headlines today are about sequestramegeddon.
Meanwhile I take some consolation that the criminals are being released in heavily liberal area's.

Same ol' $hit.

EVERYONE is appalled. Who's responsible?... How could this be?... Who ordered these releases?

Followed by the next news cycles resulting in NOTHING HAPPENING... followed by the NEXT warm bowl of $hit being prepared and readied for serving up to the American public.

The cycle repeats itself endlessly.

So we give the Federal Government a few trillion a year and what exactly do they do for us ? What the heck are we getting for our money ? Why even pay ICE to detain illegal law breakers if they are just going to let them go. Would it not be more prudent to just eliminate the ICE department ?

Turn them loose now or turn them loose later. What difference does it make?

If the duties of ICE and BATFE were swapped and they addressed their new responsibility with the same vigor as their old responsibility and waited a week we would find the following:

There wouldn’t be a single living illegal alien in America and one would be able to shoot their cannon from their front porch without any consequences.

That would lead one to believe that they actually have them in the first place.

They not only expect us to believe Janet from another planet wasn’t behind it or supported it; we are also supposed to believe the White House wasn’t consulted. Sure.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is crime against the American People, But don’t say it to loud. The Republicans might alienate the brown vote that they never get anyway.

Passive-aggressive personality disorder.......A neighbor asks the guy next door to keep his pit bull on a leash. Two days later, the guy lets the dog into the neighbors back yard to “play” with the three year old child.
