Immigration Detainees' Release Causes Outrage in Arizona (Lawless DHS 'Budget Amnesty')

TUCSON — The release of more than 300 people from immigration detention centers in Arizona — part of a mass release across the nation in anticipation of looming federal budget cuts — sparked outrage among activists on both sides of the political aisle.

Anti-illegal immigration groups and others accused the Obama administration of playing politics, while an immigrant rights group said the incident showed the administration had detained people they shouldn’t have in the first place.

John Hill, executive director of the Phoenix-based anti-illegal immigration group Stand With Arizona, said the Department of Homeland Security was using immigration security as a political weapon.

"The shocking, lawless actions of DHS in releasing thousands of illegal aliens from detention merely to score points on sequestration proves what we have said all along: The DHS is far too politicized to be trusted to implement either the Obama or the 'Gang of 8' immigration reform plans," Hill said in a statement.

Hey, it only makes good sense. The gov’t is running out of cash so THE ONLY POSSIBLE SOLUTION is to let all the criminals free and downsize the military. Seriously, what else can they do!?!?

And the Oboma administration owns it. Sequester doesn't even hit until Friday. My guess is at least one crime has already been committed by one of these illegals.

The LAW IS WHAT OBOZO, HOLDER AND NEPALITANO SAY IT IS. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THAT, THEN ASK GENERAL DEMPSEY. IF WE DON’T NEED THE TWO HOUSES OF CONGRESS TO DO THEIR PART IN RUNNING THIS COUNTRY THEN WHY THE HELL ARE THEY GETTING PAID?

Just your basic three year throwing a tantrum, burning down the house ‘cause he didn’t get his way. Obama reverting to form.

My question is what states had the highest release numbers? Was it Arizona? Was it revenge against Republican state governors? What are the statistics?

A good question, one I'd like answered, too.

In the eyes of the illegal the Oboma administration gave them a free ticket to do crime.
So much for laws.
