Obama Terrorizes Public with Illegal Alien Releases


In one of the most politically despicable moves ever perpetrated by a sitting administration, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of illegal aliens from prison in anticipation of budget cuts produced by the sequester. “As fiscal uncertainty remains over the continuing resolution and possible sequestration, ICE has reviewed its detained population to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget,” said agency spokeswoman Gillian M. Christensen in a statement. Immigration officials further warned that even more releases are possible, if the anticipated cuts are realized.

In Arizona, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who revealed that more than 500 inmates were released in his county alone, put this ploy in the proper perspective. “President Obama would never release 500 criminal illegals to the streets of his hometown, yet he has no problem with releasing them in Arizona. The safety of the public is threatened and the rule of law discarded as a political tactic in this sequester battle,” he said.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) were equally incensed. ”This is very hard for me to believe that they can’t find cuts elsewhere in their agency,” said Boehner in an interview on Tuesday night. “I frankly think this is outrageous. And I’m looking for more facts, but I can’t believe that they can’t find the kind of savings they need out of that department short of letting criminals go free.” Goodlatte concurred. “It’s abhorrent that President Obama is releasing criminals into our communities to promote his political agenda on sequestration,” he said in a statement. “By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the administration is needlessly endangering American lives.”

Yet it gets even more cynical. The “most transparent administration in history” is not only releasing inmates, it is refusing to say how many have been released, and where those releases are taking place. Federal officials claim that the detainees are still being monitored, even as they continue to face charges. They also insisted that only nonviolent offenders will be let go.

That first claim is utterly disingenuous, if not an outright lie. How is an agency ostensibly so “devastated” by budget cuts that it is forced to release criminals into the streets better equipped to monitor individuals in numerous locations, as opposed to keeping track of a group of incarcerated detainees in far fewer locations?

As for only nonviolent offenders being released, it seems the definition of that term is also somewhat elastic. The New York Times profiled one “nonviolent” detainee named Anthony Orlando Williams. Mr. Williams became an illegal alien after overstaying his visa in 1991. In 2010, he was detained by a deputy sheriff in Gwinnett County, GA, not for being in the country illegally, but for violating his probation stemming from a 2005 conviction–for simple assault, simple battery and child abuse.

Yet ICE insists it has no choice, claiming the “current fiscal climate” has forced it to do a spending review, part of which includes examining who they have detained. “As a result of this review, a number of detained aliens have been released around the country and placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release,” ICE said in a statement.

The notion that the “current fiscal climate” has forced ICE’s hand is ludicrous. The entire amount of the reductions engendered by the sequester this year is $85 billion, out of projected budget of $3.5 trillion. Yet even the $85 billion may be overstated. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), ”Discretionary outlays will drop by $35 billion and mandatory spending will be reduced by $9 billion this year as a direct result of those procedures [sequestration]; additional reductions in outlays attributable to the cuts in 2013 funding will occur in later years.” In other words, the true cost of the sequester for FY2013 is only $44 billion. Yet even that number is misleading: regardless of any so-called reduction in spending, the federal government will spend $15 billion more this year than it did last year–and a full 30 percent more than it did as little as six years ago.

Unsurprisingly, advocates for illegal aliens favor the releases, maintaining that there are better and more cost effective alternatives to incarceration. They are further urging the Obama administration to maintain their current enforcement priorities, which include the refusal to arrest illegal aliens accused of low-level crimes, or ICE administrative violations.

Yet this latest effort may backfire. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who contended that “the administration is using the sequester as a convenient excuse to bow to political pressure from the amnesty groups,” warned that such a move “lessened the chances” of comprehensive immigration reform. “With this new action, the administration has further demonstrated that it has no commitment to enforcing the law and cannot be trusted to deliver on any future promises of enforcement,” he added.

In a coordinated scare tactic, DHS Secretary Janet A. Napolitano on Monday warned that, if the sequester occurs, as many as 5000 border agents will also be furloughed, increasing the chances that even more, and possibly more dangerous, illegal aliens will be roaming the countryside. “I don’t think we can maintain the same level of security,” Ms. Napolitano contended.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) cut right through the manufactured hysteria. In a letter sent to Ms. Napolitano, he outlined a host of alternative cuts Ms. Napolitano could make. Yet the most telling part of that letter was the revelation that DHS will have approximately $9 billion in unspent funds by the end of FY2013, “raising the question of why we would not start reclaiming these funds,” Coburn wrote.

Napolitano is not the only government official with options. Barack Obama has the authority to prioritize the sequester cuts in any manner he chooses. Yet this is what he said in 2011 when the Congressional Supercommittee was formed in a failing effort to avoid sequestration:

Already, some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one.

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that Congressional Republicans are considering ways to give Obama an off ramp, as in the power to determine how the cuts are administered. The president has dismissed those efforts. The dismissal follows a Wednesday statement by White House press secretary Jay Carney claiming that ICE made the decision to release illegals “without any input from the White House.”

If that is true (which already strains credulity), then why doesn’t the same president who issued an executive order granting legal status to nearly a million illegal aliens last August, order ICE to stop releasing illegals from incarceration?

The answer is simple. Once again, the President of the United States has made it clear that he and his administration are prepared to implement their agenda by any means necessary. In this case, Obama, along with DHS and ICE officials, have now demonstrated that they are more than willing to potentially endanger American lives, rather than accept a “cut” that merely reduces the overall increase in government spending. The president undoubtedly sees such tactics as “negotiation.” Extortion is more like it.

    Here's the thing – "fiscal cliff' or not, the incorporation of illegals, in tandem with every other future Dem voter is the goal, regardless of this or that law. The law, under the aegis of Obama & Holder, is meaningless, and no longer even applicable. They operate as a junta. In fact, inventing crises, to fit their paradigm, is exactly what they do.

    Nothing shocks, at least to those reporting on their activities –

    More welfare checks, it gets better!
    Fourteen families they moving in,
    But neighbor's patience wearing thin.

    And in the yard I put a tent.

    But they, too, draw the welfare cash!
    Everything is mucho good,
    And soon we own the neighborhood.
    We have hobby–it's called breeding,
    Welfare pay for baby feeding.
    Kids need dentist? Wife need pills?
    We get free! We got no bills!

    American crazy! He pay all year,
    To keep welfare running here.

    Too darn good for the white man

    The buck stops at the white house, so this is just another unlawful, high crimes and misdemeanors offense by Barack Hussein Obama II.

    Barry Soetoro took an oath of office to defend the Constitution and the laws of the land, but so far, has failed his obligations.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Barry Soetoro took an oath of office to defend the Constitution and the laws of the land, but so far, has failed his obligations."

      He was able to slither past Benghazi murders so why would he expect to pay any price for this BS since we can't find any direct evidence of dead bodies? This is nothing to leftists. They love their dear leader playing hard ball. What constitution? That "white supremacist" document?

      And anyone taking an oath while wearing a ring praising allah is not really expected to take that oath seriously the way a Jew or Christian would. Even many atheists care about oaths but a Sunni jihadi living up to an oath of office when it's clear already where his loyalties lie?

      Disgusted but not that surprised.

    Plus it would be so inconvenient to have so many Obama voters behind bars when the next Congressional elections roll around. Even the MSM might object to putting voting machines right in detention centers.

    Obama dont like the Pilgrims.. He thin they were selfish and didn't share.

    On a serious front Obama is an Alinskiite and causing chaos is one of the principal rules for radicals. But we have guns and they dont like that. It makes them afraid to pull a full takeover. They will take it slow on a slow road to socialism while we freedom-lovers will have to defend every inch of ground. Lets wear them down..

  • janetspillows

    Obama should be released from the White House. He is a criminal and an evil psychopath who won't stop until the U.S. is completely destroyed. And the worst part of all is that his second and final term will expire at 11:59 am on January 20th, 2017. That's way too long!! Can you imagine what our country will look like then??? It truly scares me.

  • geneww1938

    These are not just illegals in these prisons, they are those with the most serious crime records. Just consider the cost invested to place them there, the percent that repeat crime and the cost that will be imposed on society in terms of localized terror, rapes, murders and every other form of crime.

    Obama will show us how he can get even when we do not give him what he demands [which changes from day to day based on the criminals who are bribing him

    The freeing of incarcerated illegal immigrants awaiting their deportation hearings is a blatantly political move.

    It, however, is not a slap in the face to the Republican Party; it's a slap in the face to all of the American people.

    This move has an air of particularly nasty vindictiveness about it. I'm amazed that Americans aren't having conniption fits over this particular tactic. It's just so deliberately provocative.

    I've been waiting for the news reports about the discovery of IEDs along the most commonly-known entry ways used by illegals from Mexico and would be surprised not to have heard about them already, if it weren't for the fact that the Border Patrol hasn't been doing much of a job for quite a while and probably couldn't find those entry ways with a marked map.

    I also think it's a failure to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitutional of the United States of American and as such is an impeachable offense, a high crime and misdemeanor.

    Democrats are blaming Republicans for the “Sequester” when it was President Obama signed it into law. Now he is using intimidation by alarming the American people, about the outcome of this law. All but in secrecy Homeland Security sent an interoffice memo to release up to 10,000 illegal aliens back on the streets. The 40 million Tea Party members are watching carefully the Liberal-Democrats and the Socialist Czars who craft most of the laws, designed to cripple the America we know. Democrats are issuing more freebies to the unknown numbers of majority groups, the poor and the freeloaders. Food stamps are more or less being passed out on a “Carte Blanche” basis and even free cell phones to anybody who applies. Some GOP Senators and Congressional leaders are running scared, because of the loss of the general election, when the truth is slowly emerging of giant irregularities of non-citizens voting. Now we have legislators as John McCain, Lindsey Graham and others cringing to the demand that 20 to 30 million foreigners gain immediate legal status.

    Next on the Democrats list is passing another illegal Alien amnesty, with a previous 1986 (IRCA) was poorly organized and full of fraudulent application and yet 6 million illegal migrants and immigrants were awarded a Path to Citizenship. The law was dictated to as the new one gaining momentum by the special interests, agriculture, unions, faith groups, corporations yet not the General Public? A new well regulated law to enforce Guest Worker jobs should be imposed, but temporary and must leave once the visa is expired. Farmers should pay all, fees, benefits, health Care, wages and not handed down to the unsuspecting taxpayer. It is the same with new immigrants who must already have employment, a financially adequate sponsor, who must support their charge and not taxpayers. What did it bring us, millions of more procuring citizenship welfare and an intensification to encourage even more foreigners skirting our borders, smuggled children and families?

    The country is in a dire emergency with a 17 trillion dollar debt, with Obama’s minions spending and spending and demanding more taxes to pay for another amnesty if it is enacted. The last Amnesty is still being paid for in illegal municipal ordinances as Sanctuary Cities, and federal pushes as the Dream Act, crucifying the taxpayer with Family Unification Chain Migration adding even more millions of people who will need Social Security and money to live on when retired? Petition your Representative in Washington at NumbersUSA or make the effort to call them through the main government switchboard at 202) 224-3121. There are an estimated 23 million Americans either not working, but with pressing demand of big businesses their advocates that roam the halls of Congress still are gaining favors. The E-Verify provision of THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT must find passage in Congress, before any new immigration laws are given priority, also to include the 2006Secure Fence Act. Not one fence but at least two, stretching from Texas to California. In addition THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT to be voted on to stop the intentional smuggling of children into our nation from across the world, to gain immediate citizenship. These laws will draw to a close the hundreds of billions of dollars collected by people of foreign status.

  • BS77

    Why couldn't these illegals have been put on buses and escorted straight to Mexico? Why not instant deportation for the crime of illegal entry?

    Simply letting them go inside our nation is NUTS. Next, one of these freed illegals will kill someone while driving drunk, no license, no insurance, no nothing. Lo siento, senor.

    The one good thing about this is between releasing illegal alien criminals and taking a ridiculously hard line on immigration "reform," Obama may himself be responsible for the failure of an amnesty which feckless Republicans otherwise might have passed. It is often said that Republicans are the stupid party and Democrats the evil party, but apparently stupidity (and even bad political gamesmanship) are not confined to one party.

  • EndangeredAmerican

    As Pat Buchanan properly stated, It’s an agenda to exterminate the United States born (white or native american indian born) races, by causing premature teenage promiscuity, followed by forced abortions WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT, buying back guns from American gun owners and giving or supplying them TO these illegal (automatic citizens) immigrants, foreclosings homes via mortgage fallouts of mostly white families causing homelessness, businesses being closed while business owners do NOT get paid even if they were promised and take the matter to court, all while places like were I live there are 250 dollar incentive programs of to refer someone to come live in the same complex but those that report lawbreakers are “legally” harassed while those that violate every law there is and are reported get paid for bringing 20 more members of their family per day. Obama said in his own campaign that for these 11 million illegals, arrest would warrent DEPORTATION even though you should NEVER trust the words of a demon, Hold Obama bin laden (I said that as I meant it, besides, he is a member of the muslim brotherhood) and kick Obama out along with these freaks. my ancestors did NOT fight for terrorists to steal my home, to kill my family or my hopes or my dreams or my future or destroy me! My grandfathers, my forefathers, my ANCESTORS, all fought for survival and this is NOT SURVIVING THIS IS BOWING DOWN AND ACCEPTING DEFEAT BY INVASION OF AN INFECTIOUS RACE CALLED HATRED!!! There is a difference between flowing down the social river going “weeeeeeee” and being ignorant until you get swept under water by the undertow and standing against the tide or braver still, getting out of those dirty waters and standing on shore throwing a rope to the extreme few who manage to stand as well. a coward sinks, can’t swim, a hero stands and saves!

    Here’s an easier way to view this: when you invade, there’s no reason to trade, you have nothing left to wonder about, as if you, as a country, (now in our home) are fully exposed and are seen for being worthless now, there’s nothing to buy, sell, no reason to go visit because you are not home. You are uninvited. Unwanted, undesired. And IF you return, there still won’t be anything left to desire, mexico exposed to much and showed what it’s capable of (as in no manners, no education, if any standards, extremely low standards, not to mention absolute lack of all kinds of control). Get the picture?
