Obama Gives Criminal Illegals A 'Budget Pardon'
Investor's Business Daily ^ | February 27, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Budget: Even before sequestration hits, the administration has been releasing hundreds of illegal aliens scheduled for deportation, jeopardizing public safety in a demagogic attempt to scare us into not cutting spending.

'I'm appalled to learn the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun to release hundreds of illegal aliens from custody, the first of potentially thousands to soon be freed under the guise of federal budget cuts," said Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday in response to the release by Immigration and Customs Enforcement of hundreds of "low-risk" illegal aliens from detention.

Well, so are we.

We are appalled at the bogus warnings that our food supply will be tainted, our transportation security jeopardized and the like by slowing the rate of growth by the federal behemoth by a paltry $85 billion.

And now this — the release of criminal illegal aliens before sequestration even happens is a cynical and unnecessary political ploy. In Pinal County, 70 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Sheriff Paul Babeau told Newsmax, the release of hundreds of detainees over the weekend was "outrageous and unacceptable, because there's a direct and immediate impact to public safety of families in my county."

Babeau noted: "These are criminal illegals. They were headed for deportation — but now, they have received a budget pardon."

An ICE spokesman said the detainees selected for release were "noncriminals and other low-risk offenders who do not have serious criminal histories."

Well, that depends on how you define "low risk" and "serious." We view all crime as serious and law enforcement and border security as an essential, not optional, function of government.

This never would have happened if only the GOP compromised and raised taxes again as O demands.

God know what O will do next unless the GOP sees reason.

Please Bohner, raises taxes NOW before O releases the serial killers and Islamic terrorists on us. Sequester will kill us all.

And Obama cares or he wouldn't complain so much about all the stuff he plans on doing to us.

Which judge ordered these releases? If the releases were allowed with a judge’s order, those who made that decision need to be in jail////

Start arrests at the bottom with the person who unlocked the cell, then the warden, then the judge, work it right up to where the order came from.

Just one more reason not to give up our guns.
