Sanctuary cities are only part of the problem behind the deadly illegal alien crisis. Barack Obama’s administration has instituted “sanctuary” as a national policy.
We have just obtained records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revealing that nearly 260 illegal alien criminals, including 40 incarcerated for violent crimes, were released from Arizona detention facilities during the last week of February and the first two weeks of March 2013.
This release begets lie after lie. After first denying that the mass release had taken place, the Obama administration claimed the releases were due to theanticipated sequestration budget cuts. The newly obtained records were uncovered because of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch on behalf of Edward Tuffly, a Tucson, AZ, resident.
The Obama administration will be up before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Friday at 9:00 a.m. for a second round of oral arguments in the immigration lawsuit filed by Texas and 25 other states. Things don’t look good for the government.
Scott Keller, the Texas Solicitor General, will be arguing on behalf of the states that the Fifth Circuit should uphold federal district court Judge Andrew Hanen’s preliminary injunction against President Obama’s immigration amnesty program. The Justice Department can’t be happy about the lineup on the three-judge panel assigned to hear the government’s appeal — two of the judges, Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith, are the same two judges who ruled against the government on May 26 in its emergency request for a stay of the injunction. Their May 26, 66-page opinion read almost like a decision on the merits of the injunction, rather than just an opinion on the government’s request for an emergency stay while the appeal was pending.
Thousands of illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes-including rape, child molestation and kidnapping-have been released in the United States by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the agency doesn’t bother keeping track of the alien convicts.
The DHS agency responsible for removing dangerous illegal aliens, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), simply releases sex offenders when they complete their criminal sentence and fails to monitor or force them to register with local authorities in the communities where they resettle. The incredulous story of this outrageous system comes via an investigative series published this week in a Boston newspaper that sued the government for the records. It includes a database of criminals that one former federal prosecutor calls “chilling.” The offenders are “dangerous and predatory individuals who should not be prowling the streets,” the prosecutor says in the article. “In fact, they should not be in the United States at all.”
The monstrous agency created after 9/11 to protect the United States from more terrorist attacks instead compromises national security by failing to track how many unauthorized foreigners-some felons in their native country-it refuses to prosecute under President Obama’s broad amnesty initiative.
One of the president’s many tools to reward illegal immigrants with amnesty is a measure known as prosecutorial discretion, which allows federal agencies to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals. For years the system has spared a myriad of illegal aliens from removal by authorizing-and encouraging-low-level field officers to block deportations by using an outrageously broad list of exemptions. Under prosecutorial discretion guidelines issued in 2011, droves of illegal aliens have been allowed to stay in the country, but no one really knows the exact amount.
Joe S. Adams, Jr. is a private investigator and former mercenary who trained forces and acted as a security consultant for officials in Southeast Asia, Africa, and Europe. Adams was the first person indicted in Iran-Contra and served one day of unsupervised probation for the “crime.”
Joe Adams has been working on the US Southern border for years providing security for ranchers and concerned citizens.
This morning Joe contacted The Gateway Pundit to relay a recent situation on the southern border in Arizona.
According to Brown, several Somali men were recently apprehended crossing the border into Arizona. When ICE officials came to pick up the illegals they told the rancher that the aliens were Mexican. The rancher argued that of course the men were obviously from Somalia. That’s when ICE told the rancher that they were ordered to report all illegals as either from Central America or Mexico – including these men from Somalia. It’s the latest trick by the Obama administration to deceive the American public on the calamity at the border.

The next explosion of illegal teen border crossing is in full swing, but just one-in-six are being sent home, with most of the rest settled in the United States, according to new government figures.
The U.S. Border Patrol agency reported that they have seized 12,509 illegals under age 18 since October, making it the second biggest surge in history after last year’s unprecedented movement of unaccompanied youths across the nation’s southern border.
However, when compared to the numbers of illegal kids turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, it is clear that most are being “booked in” to U.S. facilities and then released — not sent home. ICE documents provided to the Washington Examiner shows that ICE is accepting an average of 2,000 a month, meaning that the Border Patrol is returning just one of six kids to their countries, mostly Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
