Skip to comments.REPORT: OBAMA CONSIDERING BOND HEARINGS FOR DETAINED ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
Posted on 04/17/2014 2:29:29 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants.
According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more.
The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him as the "deporter in chief." That label has been proven to be nothing more than a myth in reports, not only from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), but in the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
The American Civil Liberties Union has found that "871 of 1,262 immigration detainees who were given bond hearings after a September 2012 federal district court ruling in California were ordered released on bond, or released with an ankle monitor, regular check-ins or other restrictions."
The LA Times also notes that "Justice Department lawyers have spent years fighting proposals to require bond hearings," and the White House "has not yet decided whether to drop its objections to the federal court's decision or appeal to the Supreme Court."

This pimple is coming to a head!
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since [Zero] took office, the [regime] may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more.Wow, the LA Times actually reported that?
He has a pen and a phone. Why should he defer to Congress? /s
Zero’s gonna need every vote he can get in seven months. Try not to judge him too harshly.
There is no hope anymore. The lawlessness condoned and celebrated by this Administration/Congress/President is the final nail.
I despise Barack Obama and his ilk.
If Barack Obama honors no law, neither do I.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Tuesday that his departments deportation numbers are now mostly made up of illegal immigrants caught at the border, not just those from the interior, which means they cant be compared one-to-one with deportations under President Bush or other prior administrations.
Just another example of Obama cooking the books to send a false message.
Guess that helps explain this old story...
Despite the sequester, the Department of Homeland Security has just completed a hiring blitz of attorneys to oversee and manage immigration litigation. Almost all of these new civil service attorney hires hail from an activist pro-amnesty and pro-asylum background. Sources within the Department of Homeland Security report that the process for hiring these new career civil service lawyers was unconventional and was conducted by an Obama political appointee within DHS.
Funny, this story makes it sounds like Obama and the DoJ were fighting this...pffft...LA Times also notes that “Justice Department lawyers have spent years fighting proposals to require bond hearings,”
All a bunch of freaking liars.
The number of deportations resulting from interior enforcement by ICE declined by 19 percent from 2011 to 2012, and is on track to decline another 22 percent in 2013.
In 2012, the year the Obama administration claimed to break enforcement records, more than one-half of removals attributed to ICE were the result of Border Patrol arrests that would never have been counted as a removal in prior years. In 2008, under the Bush administration, only one-third of removals were from Border Patrol arrests.
Total deportations in 2011, the latest year for which complete numbers are available, numbered 715,495 the lowest level since 1973. The highest number of deportations on record was in 2000, under the Clinton administration, when 1,864,343 aliens were deported.
When claiming record levels of enforcement, the Obama administration appears to count only removals, which are just one form of deportation, and only a partial measure of enforcement. Beginning in 2011, a shift of some of the routine Border Patrol case load to ICE enabled the administration to count an artificially high number of removals.
“this could result in “several thousand” illegal immigrants being released from jails and “could slow the pace of deportations” even more.”
And a revenue stream from bond forfeitures. Somewhere
there is money in it for someone. Set the bond at around
a grand and see how many fail to appear. And if they get
caught make them post a bond again. Might not be a bad idea
Bet they’ll be defended by “public defenders” too. And bet the bond “revenue” won’t even match the defender’s cost.
Hussein doesn't need votes anymore!!!
Illegal immigrants? Sheeesh, call them what they are, illegal ALIENS!
Obama is going to need these illegals to vote Democrat this fall.
They can’t afford to come here under work visa or immigration laws but, can afford bond, to stay in a country they are not authorized to be in?
i don’t even know what he believes in. Everything he does is about campaigning. The biggest phoney ever.
For the remaining years I have on this earth, I will forevermore blame and despise Obama voters for this, the destruction of our once-great nation.
