Americans are furious over the outrageous, lawless release of thousands of criminal illegal aliens from ICE detention - hundreds in Arizona alone - endangering families and communities from coast-to-coast.

As the controversy swirled today, an angry Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) appeared on FoxNews' Neil Cavuto show to react to both the detainee releases, as well as to two days of finger-pointing and avoidance of responsibility on the part of the White House and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

“The American people are fed up. We have all of this outrageous activity going on.  And, they’re releasing illegal criminals. Because these are not arrest and release people. These are people who have been held for a reasonNo one from the administration has contacted my Homeland Security Division. No one has contacted my office. No one has reached out. And, obviously they don’t know what the heck is going on because they didn’t know anything about it either. Well, who’s running this country?
As Stand With Arizona reported yesterday, past released detainees deemed "low-priority" have committed thousands of violent crimes between 2009 and 2011, including 18 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sexual assaults. Brewer's frustration reflects the chaos this Administration has created at the very center of the illegal immigration crisis: Arizona.
“I think we should all be fearful of what’s taking place and what’s going on. And that we have a situation where no one’s in charge. No one knows what anybody else is doing,” she heatedly said. “It’s outrageous. It’s appalling, and we need some communication. We need some straight talk.”
Below is the full video of Governor Brewer's appearance...

It’s called not letting a good crisis go to waste.

Probably hoping some of them will commit some atrocity so the Feds have another "reason" to attack the Constitution/People.

60,000 Border and Customs Agents Told to Take Furloughs
Thursday, March 7, 2013 08:04 PM

By: Todd Beamon

Sixty-thousand federal employees responsible for securing the nation’s borders and facilitating trade will be furloughed for as many as 14 days starting next month because of $85 billion in cross-government spending cuts.

The federal government notified the workers on Thursday, CNN reports.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said the furloughs and other austerity measures would cause delays at ports of entry, including international arrivals at airports, and would reduce the number of border patrol officers on duty at any one time, CNN reports.
