Skip to comments.Sen. McCain slams release of illegal immigrants
Posted on 03/08/2013 3:08:07 PM PST by posterchild
Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona said Friday that some of the more than 2,000 illegal immigrants recently released by the Homeland Security Department because of budget cuts may have been convicted of serious crimes, citing "local sources."
In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, McCain demanded new information on the release of the detainees, who were facing deportation, including the details of their criminal records. He said there's a possibility some of them had committed serious crimes such as smuggling, narcotics trafficking and child molestation.
Federal officials maintain those released were non-violent criminals and low-risk offenders. The states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas.
McCain wants Napolitano to make public this month the criteria used to determine which detainees were released and how many had been convicted of serious crimes.
"Local sources have raised the possibility that some of the detainees had committed serious crimes such as weapons offenses, smuggling, narcotics trafficking, forgery, aggravated assault against police officers and child molestation," McCain wrote. "The American public needs to be confident that... the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in fact did not release detainees who will be a danger to the public."

So what, that’s one out of two hundred that this old smegma got right?
No doubt the illegals got better treatment from the federales than American citizens who have a federal encounter.
Up yours, you worthless liberal bas**rd.
Is it just me or does anyone else think the MSM uses the word “slams” too much?
McSmegma? It fits!
She’s disgusting. “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.
re: After his reprehensible actions of late he’s just throwing conservatives a bone.
Exactly! That is all it is. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be having a problem with what was done. Why he even stays in the Republican Party is a mystery to me. He sides with the Democrats most of the time. Just doing his “maverick” thing, shafting the people who elected him to represent them.
He should be a democRAT along with his fellow Republican liberal Lindsey Grahamesty.
Somebody ask that idiot if he’s tried to sink a carrier lately?
If McQueeg had his way they would have never been arrested in the first place.
Look - the old man is ‘triangulating’.
The old fool is getting some heat from home and is trying to look like he’s doing something! He isn’t! He won’t! He never has! He’s not the least bothered that they ALL BROKE OUR LAWS!!!!
John McCain is the WORST thing to ever happen to the GOP...right up there with Grover Norquist.
“After his reprehensible actions of late he’s just throwing conservatives a bone.
Up yours, you worthless liberal bas**rd. “

So McCain is a Ron Paul Liberartian.
“Late to the Party John”
he sees his gums bleeding...
I have three different friends in Phoenix and ALL say the same.
McCain is notorious for posturing, but in the end does little or NOTHING.
McCain is just another politician "blowing to the galleries."
