The APís Claim that a DHS Official Resigned Over the Illegal Alien Releases Turns Out to Be False
PJ Tatler ^ | 2/27/13 | Bryan Preston

Earlier today the Associated Press reported that a Department of Homeland Security official had resigned in the wake of the Obama administration’s decision to release thousands of illegal aliens awaiting the judicial process. The department cited budget cuts as the reason for the releases, despite the fact that the cuts would hit about one percent of DHS’s budget, and they have not even happened yet.

The AP’s story turns out to have been premature. No one has been fired or resigned in the wake of the release scandal.

The senior Homeland Security Department official in charge of arresting and deporting illegal immigrants announced his retirement the same day the agency said that hundreds of people facing deportation had been released from immigration jails due to looming budget cuts, according to a letter obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. The government said he had told his bosses weeks ago that he planned to retire.

The House committee responsible for oversight must have whoever issued the order testify under oath who gave him the order. Also if one of these detainees commits a felony after their release whoever gave the order should be held civilly and criminally liable.

“You can resign for any reason you want as long as it’s on our approved list of reasons to resign. Do otherwise and we’ll turn an illegal alien loose on your ass.”

Yes but I'm afraid this group has no spine whatsoever to do such a thing. Nothing will come of this, following in the footsteps of Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Illegal Executive Orders, (the drunk) Hagel and (crook) Lew,etc.

Also if one of these detainees commits a felony after their release whoever gave the order should be held civilly and criminally liable.

See above

No! Just an out and out lie to calm the situation!
I really wish the sane ones in the nation would boycott these
news outlets and the advertisers that support this tripe!
Honest journalism is dead!
I usually give a news story 3 days to see what is going to be retracted!
Self pride is also now missing from so called reporters!
The credential around their neck is no more than a license to lie!
