DHS plans to release 5,000 illegal immigrants due to sequestration
The Washington Examiner ^ | March 5, 2013 | Joel Gehrke

House investigators learned Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials developed plans to release about 5,000 illegal immigrant detainees, although Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has denied responsibility for the decision.

“An internal document obtained by the House Judiciary Committee shows that Administration officials at ICE prepared cold calculations to release thousands of criminal aliens onto the streets and did not demonstrate any consideration of the impact this decision would have on the safety of Americans,” committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., announced.

The ICE document contains a table that proposes “reduc[ing] invoiced daily population by 1,000 weekly.” Between February 22 and March 31st, this plan would drop the number of detainees from 30,748 to 25,748.

“The decision to release detained aliens undermines the Department of Homeland Security’s mission to keep our homeland secure and instead makes our communities less safe and more vulnerable to crime,” Goodlatte said. “[R]egardless of sequestration, DHS actually has plenty of funding to pay for the detention of criminal aliens. Unfortunately, it seems Administration officials are more interested in using sequestration to promote their political agenda than as an opportunity to get our nation’s fiscal house in order.”

Napolitano said that it wasn’t her decision, even though ICE is part of DHS....

He's poking law abiding Americans in the chest, backing them up to the edge of the abyss.

This is a carefully thought out and executed strategy.

Yet more of the addled, not to say insane, and certainly illegal, Obama response to resistance to his continuing budgetary excesses.

Clearly, he cares nothing for the laws of the United States where his gamesmanship is involved.

In what new ways will the egomaniacal side of the president reveal itself in the coming four years?

I can only imagine the outrage if Americans on the whole were mentally alert enough to understand why this is a bad thing.

And we’re expected to believe these illegals are no threat because they’re not violent criminals. To the Einsteins who think this is such a great idea ... Since they’re “undocumented,” how did you arrive at THAT conclusion???

The real question is will the other two branches of the FERAL Government nut up and arrest, try, convict and hang all those responsible for these treason,high crimes and misdemeanors imposed upon the LEGAL American Citizen?

Ehhhhh, No.

So, who will it fall upon to seek and ensure that justice is wrought upon these traitors to the American Constitution and American Liberties?

The Armed Patriot.

Are all these illegals on welfare, unemployment, food stamps, Section 8 housing, free emergency room care and/or free ObamaPhones yet?

If not, how are they living...and who is paying for this "living"?

"“An internal document obtained by the House Judiciary Committee shows that Administration officials at ICE prepared cold calculations to release thousands of criminal aliens onto the streets and did not demonstrate any consideration of the impact this decision would have on the safety of Americans,” committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., announced."

I think they demonstrated considerable consideration of the impact. They want to maximize the impact. Release the criminals, open the borders, close some airports, make the TSA lines hours long; all of this is a plan to maximize the impact of the sequester, create a crisis and blame it on the evil GOP. Obama is banking that the average citizen will buy his propaganda and the GOP will fold. If we can't cut 2.4% of an increase in budget authority, then there is no hope at all to stop the deficit spending and rein in Obama.

This is also a strategy to take back the House for the Rats. If that happens, there will be nothing left, not even a weak Boehner, to stop Obama doing a full transformation like the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela.

But, we won't stop the Obamaphone Program, and there's 5000 new Obamaphones that could be GIVEN to those released.

Cuts in the Military, cuts in public-inconvienience Services, etc., all to make it "the Republican's Fault", for implementing Obama's Sequestor.

State-run-media has their talking points, and this spit-in-the-ocean token cut in spending has eliminated NONE of the over-staffed, over-blown, and overlord Administrations path of Destruction.

California has almost 700 prisoners on death row.

Imagine what they could save if they turned them all loose.

When I first heard of sequestration I foolishly thought it meant our congress critters would be sequestered – like with a jury – until a viable budget was agreed on. I liked the idea of them being in lockdown.

Then I looked up the meaning of “sequestration”:

1. confiscating or being confiscated: the act or process of legally confiscating somebody's property temporarily until a debt that person owes is paid, a dispute is settled, or a court order obeyed Encarta ® World English Dictionary © & (P) 1998-2005 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

I still don’t see the connection.

“Oh well the majority elected this assclown.”

The illegal criminals aliens will ply their trade in the large blue gun restricted cities where they can blend in the best and get all the freebies they can carry away (legally or illegally).

Rural areas have little to worry about as they are armed to the teeth and these criminal aliens stand out like a sore thumb.

In effect, Obama is releasing the majority of these criminals into the midst of his voting base.

Serves them right for voting for the pr*ck.

As per an earlier post by a Freeper (whose name I can't recall), the MSM should refer to the current sequester as "the Obama sequester," as the infamously did to the so-called "Bush tax cuts."
