Obama Released Hundreds of Convicted Criminals in Sequester Intimidation Bid

Back when Obama was still playing Sequester Chicken, his trump card was the imminent disaster that would surely follow if the GOP didn’t bend to his will. And he did everything possible to make certain that it really would follow… including releasing convicted criminals.

More than a third of the 342 illegal immigrants released from detention facilities in Arizona last month were convicted criminals, and one of them was categorized as a Level 1 offender, the highest risk, according to data released by the federal government Friday.

The governor and local law-enforcement officials have demanded that ICE provide details about the criminal backgrounds of the immigration detainees released in Arizona.

The figures for Arizona were announced a day after ICE Director John Morton testified during a House subcommittee hearing that, nationally, 2,228 illegal immigrants were released during a three-week period beginning Feb. 9, far more than the several hundred people ICE officials originally said were released.

In all, ICE released 10 illegal immigrants nationally who were classified as Level 1 offenders, including one in Arizona, three in Chicago, two in Miami, two in New York City and two in San Francisco.

Level 1 offenders can include illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes including homicide, drug trafficking, “aggravated felonies” and threats to national security.

On Friday, ICE provided a breakdown that showed that of the 342 illegal immigrants released in Arizona, 122 of them were convicted criminals. In addition to the one Level 1 offender, ICE released 30 classified as Level 2, and 91 classified as Level 3, the lowest risk. The other 220 were non-criminals, the agency said Friday.

For four years, the media insisted that Republican tactics were endangering the country. And this time around, Obama made deliberate efforts to endanger national defense and domestic security.

    This is a scenario where Obama truly leads from out front, ahead of the crowd calling
    to his amigo's. What a dolt, can someone be impeached for endangering the public
    and aiding criminals escape justice, it should happen and if not why not. Obama is not
    above the law but the Congress is less than able to uphold it as a collegial group of
    sniveling cowards that live only to be reelected, all else be damned…………..William

    Does anyone now harbor any doubts about the malice Obama holds for this country, that he'd deliberately unleash convicted criminals on the citizens of this country, just to spite the Republicans and everyone else? Obama is a dedicated nihilist and someone should call him on it.

    Lets not forget 9/11 when Bush Jr. Ushered the families of the insurgents out of the US just weeks before it all happened! Think hard about history repeating itself. This antichrist has no boundaries, nothing will stand in his way! The illuminati is in full force and motion across the entire world. Please educate yourself on the Georgia Guidestones- what they represent and what is GOING TO HAPPEN!!! God bless and be safe… Surely he comes quickly :)

    Indeed, he committed a very GRAVE crime, in so much as he has endangered the lives of countless Americans. Not only that, but it has already been proven that the sequester was HIS baby, ostensibly to hammer the Repubs over the head with it.

    Regardless, the above is the expected result when revolutionaries hold the reins of power – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/17/when-the-u-s-

    And if Americans are outraged, as well as scared now, the above will give you more than nightmares. So sorry for that!
