Earlier today the Associated Press reported that a Department of Homeland Security official had resigned in the wake of the Obama administrations 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 DHSs budget, and they have not even happened yet.

Lies, lies and more damn lies.

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