Illegal Immigrants Set Loose Due to Sequester
By Harold Hutchison
Illegal immigrants were turned loose by the Obama Administration ahead of the looming sequester.
"Over the last week, ICE has reviewed several hundred cases and placed these individuals on methods of supervision less costly than detention,” ICE spokesperson Gillian Christensen said. “All of these individuals remain in removal proceedings. Priority for detention remains on serious criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to public safety.”
The Obama Administration has been campaigning against the looming sequester, demanding instead further tax increases. The Administration also has delayed the deployment of USS Harry S Truman, and the overhaul of USS Abraham Lincoln.
“By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the administration is needlessly endangering American lives. It also undermines our efforts to come together with the administration and reform our nation’s immigration laws,” Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement.
