Feds free illegal immigrants in Georgia, other states

By
February 27, 2013

Several hundred illegal immigrants have been released from detention centers in Georgia and other states, federal officials confirmed Tuesday. They said the releases were made to cut costs in advance of automatic spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect Friday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials declined to say precisely how many detainees they have freed or where they are being released. But they confirmed some have been freed from the Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, 145 miles south of Atlanta.

Critics immediately accused the White House of gamesmanship in the contentious debate over the across-the-board spending cuts, called sequestration. President Barack Obama and Congress have long been at odds over how to handle deficit reduction.

    This is literally an impeachable act. Not that Obama will be impeached, just he should be impeached.

    The “Washington Monument Ploy” played with actual public safety.

    I wonder how many people will be killed or injured by this?

      I get the felling there is nothing Obama and his ‘strategist’ would like more than to have the GOP start impeachment proceeds. With a complicit media, that would perhaps put the final nail in the ‘extreme GOP’ coffin they have been building for a while. It’s almost as if he is taunting them to move on it.

      Gawd, I hate politics….

      • Ragspierre says:

        If the American people overwhelmingly demanded impeachment, it still would not happen. The Senate would rubber-stamp “not guilty” on any bill of impeachment, regardless.

        Of course, any nominally conservative president could NEVER get away with the stuff Obama has done to date.

    “Neither the legal details of the sequester nor the practical work of reforming government are as interesting to the media as Mr. Obama’s invocations of plagues and pestilence. The real revelation is that if the world does end, it will be Mr. Obama’s choice.”

    This is the coda from a good, thorough piece detailing how Obama has all the flex he needs to rationally deal with a 2% cut in the INCREASE of Federal spending.

    But this whole farce is DESIGNED to beat America into line.

    Well folks, it’s started. Went with Mom for our afternoon Big Gulp and I saw a bunch of Mexicans pointing at our minivan. Its a limited editon and is worth a LOT of pesos. This is NO coincidence. They want our property and our freedom.

    Gawd

      BobintehCT, serious question…

      (despite the fact you are a cowardly, identity-confused liar)…

      Is Obama totally incompetent at running the Federal government, or…

      did he cynically direct the release of criminal illegal aliens?

      OR has the Federal government grown beyond anyone’s ability to manage it rationally?

    Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to attack President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.

    CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.

    “I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on his reporting.
    —Business Insider

    Confused!?!?

    They’ve been doing this for going on five years.

    Meanwhile, Crazy “Blast Through The Door” Biden…point man on gun-grab…

    keeps the hate alive…
