Napolitano promises to release more illegals

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised to release more illegal immigrants into the United States, saying the budget sequester has left her no choice.

Several hundred detainees have already released because of the sequester, she insisted. They were released on bail, or because their legal status had changed, she said.

“We’re going to continue to do that … for the foreseeable future,” Napolitano said at a March 4 breakfast meeting hosted by Politico. “We are going to manage our way through this by identifying the lowest risk detainees, and putting them into some kind of alternative to release.”

However, Napolitano’s statement clashed with a March 1 report by The Associated Press, which said that internal agency documents show that her managers had already released 2,000 detainees, and planned to release 3,000 more detainees.

Napolitano’s threat reflects the White House’s determination to ramp up public distress until the GOP ages to another tax increase.

Under the sequester, budgets at the Pentagon and the numerous civilian agencies are being cut by roughly 8 percent from March to September. The cuts will trim roughly 1 percent from federal spending in 2013.

President Barack Obama suggested the sequester plan in 2011, and is now refusing any changes until the GOP agrees to tax increases.

There are roughly 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, of whom roughly 7 million are working, mostly in low-skill jobs. However, roughly 20 million Americans are without jobs, including several million Americans with few job skills.

    Can we add her address on some “Welcome to America” flyers at the border?

    Enjoy it while you can Janet. One day you’ll be judged for your treason – either this side of the veil or the other…or both.

    Mary Jane beat me to the punch. I was going to suggest leasing an apartment building in Nappy’s neighborhood and letting some of the illegals with the worst criminal records stay there rent free.

    Okay, so let me get this straight.

    Janet Napalitano had nothing whatsoever to do with the release of those illegal aliens. She didn’t know it was going to be done and somebody at ICE did it without her knowledge. But she assures us she will be releasing more.

    Have I got that right?

    @ sTevo- We need a Senate with balls to make that go. In fact, the existence of Harry Reid is a get-out-of-jail-free card for anything Obumfuk or his czars want to do to this country.

    The only solution is the second amendment and that’s why they’re working so hard to castrate it.
