ICE Released 32 Illegals With ‘Multiple Felonies’

From Fox News:

ICE admits hundreds of illegal immigrants with criminal records released

May 16, 2013

Hundreds of illegal immigrants with criminal records were released earlier this year as the Obama administration prepared for budget cuts, according to newly released data that challenged claims the program involved "low-risk" individuals.

Even this sentence is very misleading, since these releases were done before the sequester was a done deal. Besides, we already know that the minuscule sequester cuts should not have required any releases, anyway.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement released the figures to two top senators, after a three-month delay and under the threat of congressional subpoenas.

Which is typical of the ‘most transparent administration’ in history.

Of the 2,226 detainees that were released in February, the department revealed, "622 have been identified as having some type of criminal conviction."

Lest we forget, Obama pretends that he has suspect deporting illegal aliens in general, in order to concentrate on deporting those with criminal records that might be a danger to public safety.

A statement from Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Carl Levin, D-Mich., who received the stats, said 32 of them had multiple felony convictions. The department then "re-apprehended" 24 of those, the senators said, after realizing the "seriousness" of their crimes…

When the details of these releases first surfaced back in March 2013, the Direct of ICE Director, John Morton, testified before Congress that only eight serious felons had been released. And that four of them had been rounded back up.

Still, why were any of these illegal aliens released in the first place? Let alone 32 with "multiple felony convictions"? And how come eight illegal aliens with multiple felony convictions are still on the loose in the country?

This is yet another example of how the Obama administration has put our country at risk in order to play politics.

In late February, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: "As ICE made clear yesterday, the agency released these low-risk, non-criminal detainees under a less expensive form of monitoring to ensure detention levels stayed within ICE’s overall budget."

But according to McCain and Levin, some of those released had lengthy rap sheets.  

Mr. Carney is seldom on the same page with the truth.

One of them released in Phoenix had a second-degree robbery conviction and convictions for prostitution and solicitation for lewd conduct.

Another had been convicted of an "extreme" case of driving under the influence, harassment, and causing criminal damage to property. And yet another had prior convictions for carrying a gun, felony possession of drugs, burglary, vandalism and trespassing…

But they weren’t a threat to public safety.

    This is the ultimate moment of truth for us and our fellow citizens. Everything we need to know about Demonicrats, Obummer, and the failures of the GOP establishment is out there now. Corruption and criminality is rife and out of control.

    There’s a lot more of course (Fast & Furious, Bernanke and the Fed, etc.), but Americans have enough on their plate for a whole meal.

    An immense grass-roots movement has to rise up, demanding reform and a cleansing of the Augean stables. It will require a river of passion and public outrage to flush out the effluvium.

    If these felons want to stay out of jail, all they need to do is get jobs at the IRS, DoJ, EPA, State Department or nerobama’s cabinet. Apparently they can skate by un-noticed there for a long time and they won’t face any charges even if they are caught there. They might even add some class to the cabal of multiple-felons already there.

    It’s okay.

    My new ammo shipment got here yesterday.

    Someone told me there were far more and very dangerous illegals than first reported, but any time the media reports something negative against the liberal administration it adds weight, but still most likely is far worse than what tidbit’s the brave on to report.

    Can you imagine what the media has gone through for years now with Obama’s Gestapo breathing down their necks and threatening them.
