Skip to comments.DHS releasing illegal immigrant families from Central America into U.S. — but won’t say how many

Seven times the AP asked them for a number, seven times the feds said they either didnt know or that theyd get back to them. You trust Obama to faithfully report the effects of new border security laws after comprehensive reform passes, dont you?
An ominous possibility here: Maybe they really, sincerely dont know. Maybe the crush of illegals over the past six months has been so huge and the system so overwhelmed by trying to process and house minors that theyre turning people loose now without even pausing to record their presence. Usually catch and release at least involves a tally. Who knows anymore?
Despite promises to the contrary, this is how it looks when the image-conscious Obama administration doesnt want to reveal politically sensitive information that could influence an important policy debate. The mystery figure is significant because the number of families caught crossing from Central America represents a large share of new immigration cases that will further strain the overwhelmed U.S. immigration courts system. It also affects federal enforcement strategy, such as where to deploy the border patrol, and political calculations about whether Congress or the White House will relax American immigration laws or regulations before upcoming congressional elections in November.
Most of the immigrant families are from Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala and cannot be immediately repatriated, so the government has been releasing them into the U.S. interior and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices. Despite promises for better transparency on immigration issues, the administration has been unwilling to say how many immigrant families its released hundreds or thousands or how many of those subsequently reported back to the government after 15 days as directed.
I will: Hundreds of thousands. Next question?
Quick folks: Which functional but sparsely populated country in Central America are all three of these near or even bordering?
Why don't they head there?
If you guessed Belize and "Because they enforce their borders", then go to the head of the class.
Department of Homeland Security ? everything but
who will stop them. anyones congressman saying anything????
why is homeland security mixed up in this?
Just how crazy is this????? “homeland security” releasing alien invaders throughout the USA. These federal criminals at all levels should be fired and imprisoned. “homeland security” my butt. LIBs/DIMs are insane.
“so the government has been releasing them into the U.S. interior and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices”
This isn’t just the usual folly. As Zero’s minion `Jeh’ pointed out in a letter on this subject posted here the other day, releasing them is illegal.
But when has concern for the law ever stopped this lawless & irresponsible group of thugs?
Obama’s Migrant Voter Program going as planned
The Obama zombies have taken over. Head for they hills!
Why are we bringing the families up here?-Even shipping the people/kids one-way, back to their home countries, is going to be an expensive nightmare- assuming we do send them back.
Cue the: "You mean I have to pay for them" crowd-same ones who were "shocked" to discover that Obama saying: "everyone should be insured" meant "they" (low info voters) were expected to pay for the uninsured.
Wake up America!
Department of Homeland Security has become:
The Bureau of Screw-You America
Fedgov is facilitating foreign invasion.
Thug arm of the Democrat Party? The 'enforcers'...
