Gov’t Won’t Say How Many Illegals They Are Releasing

From the Associated Press:

US releases immigrant families, won’t say how many

By ALICIA A. CALDWELL | June 23, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has released into the U.S. an untold number of immigrant families caught traveling illegally from Central America in recent months — and although the government knows how many it’s released, it won’t say publicly.

This is par for the course with the Obama administration. We still don’t know how many previously uninsured people got insurance under Obama-Care. Just like we can’t trust any other statistic that might hurt the Democrats. Such as the real unemployment, inflation and GDP numbers.

Senior U.S. officials directly familiar with the issue, including at the Homeland Security Department and White House, have so far dodged the answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that they did not know the figure or didn’t have it immediately at hand. "We will get back to you," the Homeland Security deputy secretary said Friday.

The figure is widely believed to exceed 40,000 since October. It’s believed to be slightly below the roughly 52,000 children caught traveling illegally from Central America over the same period, an extraordinary increase since last year that is driving a humanitarian crisis at the border.

In other words, the number of those released is only though to be "slightly below" those who have come across the border. Which jibes with earlier reports that 90% of the illegal aliens are being released.

Despite promises to the contrary, this is how it looks when the image-conscious Obama administration doesn’t want to reveal politically sensitive information that could influence an important policy debate…

Or hurt them at the polls in November. Or cause people to break out the pitchforks.
