U.S. Releases “Waves” of Illegal Immigrants from Custody

Judicial Watch

Never one to let a crisis go to waste, President Obama is using impending budget cuts to justify releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers throughout the country.

Groups of illegal aliens have been freed this week from facilities in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to a mainstream newspaper story that quotes advocates reporting “waves” being released. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed the secret liberation program, but wouldn’t say how many illegal immigrants were let go or what facilities they came from.

One appreciative illegal immigrant, Manuel Perez, actually issued a statement after getting released from a detention center in Livingston Texas this week: “Lots of us are getting out who were brought in for driving without a license or other small things,” Perez wrote. “I hope more of us are able to get out soon.”

The move comes at a time when the president has embarked on a major campaign to convince the nation that impeding budget cuts will harm national security, specifically border protection and the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Ironically, releasing incarcerated illegal immigrants into the general population can certainly threaten the security of the communities where they are freed.

Here is the statement from ICE that appears in the story: “In order to make the best use of our limited detention resources in the current fiscal climate and to manage our detention population under current congressionally mandated levels, ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding. 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.”

Just a few months ago the administration used another crisis, a hurricane, as an excuse to assist illegal immigrants who have flouted U.S. law. The president actually created a special storm amnesty to justify waiving immigration laws, including for violators of student visas like the 9/11 hijackers who murdered thousands of Americans.

The unprecedented move came last November after Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast.  In an announcement posted by the Homeland Security agency handling the initiative, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Obama administration said it “understands that a natural disaster can affect an individual’s ability to maintain a lawful immigration status.”

Among the “benefits or relief” offered under the plan is “expedited adjudication of off-campus employment authorization applications for F-1 students experiencing economic hardship.” This would apply to foreign students like the al-Qaeda terrorists who trained as pilots in U.S. flight schools and purposely slammed commercial airplanes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon in 2001. All entered and lived in the U.S. with student visas and remained in the country even after they expired. One of the hijackers had enrolled—but never attended—a northern California language school.

  1. Now pardon the descriptive french but that corksucker is chidding us to react with great intolerance so that he can counter react with a test of his shoot Americans DHS, or military troops!
    This is another of his power plays just like when large numbers of jobs could have been had and he refused to inact the pipeline agreement just to screw over Americans! But he loaded up his DHS,TSA and EPA with his mindless thousands to show that he created jobs in his first term yea all Tax payer funded jobs!
    It is time to organize and move out on this basterd and shut down his DHS centers and his fema camps!

  2. Since the specific areas to be “cut” have not been announced, the Feds are clearly on the hook to cut ICE/DHS since they already let 10K illegal criminals loose on our streets citing impending cuts. If they end up not cutting ICE, a lawsuit should result.
