Sen. McCain slams release of illegal immigrants
AP via abc news ^ | March 8, 2013 | Christina Silva

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."

Did citizen criminals and criminals legally authorized to be here also get a sequester freedom bonus or was that just reserved for those criminals who additionally entered illegally?

No doubt the illegals got better treatment from the federales than American citizens who have a federal encounter.

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.

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."

A week and a half after the release happens and now
He lifts his head out of Obama’s shorts to voice a concern.
Now here is a real leader! /s

Why have you been mute on the issue until today?
Would it be because at the very same day and time this was happening
you were having lunch with Nero and you didn’t want many to notice?

John McCain: the enemy within!

I don’t give a hoot what that POS RINO has to say... about anything.

McCain has proven time and time again that he simply can’t be trusted. His word holds zero credibility.

Frankly, I think he is mentally ill.

I don’t recall Ron Pauls position on deportation.

Let’s look:

Enforce visa rules. Immigration officials must track visa holders and deport anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law. This is especially important when we recall that a number of 9/11 terrorists had expired visas.

But who cares, anyway? Ron is out of office.

And remember it was MeCain that hired Conservative hit man and Sarah Palin hater Steve Schmidt as his senior campaign advisor.

MeCain is the biggest camera hog in Washington and has no problem going on TV or being interviewed by the libs over at Politico to trash Rand Paul & Ted Cruz and their Conservative supporters.

Enforce visa rules.

Illegals care as much about visa rules as criminals do about gun purchase rules.

But who cares, anyway?

My point exactly.........who besides some of us not in congress cares?

Sen. McCain slams release of illegal immigrants

He doesn't mean it. It just dawned on Juan that he and Lindsey had hurt themselves with their assinine criticism of Rand Paul, so now he's trying to make up for that lost ground by pretending to object to the release of the illegals.

RE :”One of the illegal aliens must have committed another crime..”

No, McCain can see that this action is causing complications with his amnesty deal with Obama. How can McCain tell us that Obama has made the border safe when the gubment is letting loose these criminals? So like Rubio he does a 'woof-woof I am tough on Obama' play.

Political success is much about messaging.

Mccain gets on Sunday show and says that illegals will vote GOP if only given amnesty, playing good cop.

Grahamnesty played the bad cop by going on TVs suggested we change the constitution to end birthright, with the sole purpose of getting the MSM to drop hell on the anti-amnesty GOP in congress. (he drops the subject fast after that and lets the GOP take the heat.) And not one Republicans points out that changing the constitution is not necessary, because of all the fire directed at them.

This is war folks and they sure are not on our sides.

McCainac is still sucking up to Ohaha liked he did as his 2008 opponent----now McJerk's falling right into O's devious plan to split Repubs down the midddle so the Dems can takeover the entire Congress at midterms.

Vote-crazed US pols are marching in lockstep with Mexico. Mexico is pushing north at a furious pace---throwing its "pressure groups" over the border---salivating for reconquista---to takeover the SW--- financing and coaching their fifth column invasion of US borders.

The wailing and whining propaganda-----"just here for a better life, to do jobs Americanos won't do"--- really "gets" to bleeding heart sap-happy, vote-crazed US pols.

=====================================================================================

We need someone with integrity----maybe Cong Alan Allen West (not reelected)----- to write letters to colleagues, and to the media:

(1) decrying the agitation and intimidation tactics being used by latino groups,

(2) exposing latino groups using hatemongering for personal gain,

(3) emphasizing the illegalities WRT threatening the US Congress,

(4) precpitating investigations into voter fraud using forged/stolen ID's,

(5) expose Third World collusion to exchange votes for amnesty, foreign aid, etc etc etc.

THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES w/ PRESSURE GROUPS LIVING ILLEGALLY IN THE US: Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside)l Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Fifth Column "Dreamers" are here to take orders from their Third World masters to tear down the US govt....from within. There should be no handouts, free college education, amnesty, jail release, etc, for any latino (or their parents) who support the America-hating LaRaza. Here's why.

====================================================

BLOOD-CURDLING LA RAZA STUDIES ONCE TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS La Raza Studies does not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its blood-thirsty plans to kill off Americans: : These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation. And judging by Ramos' activities---La Raza is establishing a beachhead in NJ.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murdering Americans and latino violence, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

====================================================

The Dems tried to pump up San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro (his twin brother is a Congressman) at the 2012 convention by making him a Dem keynoter....but ol' Juan made a huge mistake when he genially introduced his mother---Maria “Rosie” Castro.

Mamasita Castro is a busy activist---a radical ethno-centric anti-assimilationist---a key figure in the activities of “La Raza."

JUST ANOTHER LATINO UNDERWORLD KINGPIN HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE God only knows the how much govt money da Mayor and Mamasita La Raza are scamming. Every govt budget, agency, and bank account under San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro's control should be examined with a fine-tooth comb for govt fraud, racketeering, conspiracy, collusion, nepotism, secret LLC accounts, and money laundering, wire fraud, tax evasion, etc, etc, etc.

=======================================

SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding and abetting building a Third World on US soil.

Mmmmmmm....those father daughter chats must be interesting.
