This is unbelievable. The sequester hasn’t even kicked in and already the Obama admin is releasing hundreds of illegals from local jails and they plan on releasing thousands more, all because of the 2% sequester.

It’s really just unbelievable what this president gets away with. I bet he could order the deaths of the first born and the media would just ignore it. Ugh:

FOX NEWS – The Department of Homeland Security has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails in anticipation of automatic budget cuts, in a move one Arizona sheriff called politically motivated — and dangerous.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released more than 500 detainees in his county alone over the weekend. A spokesman for Babeu told FoxNews.com that ICE officials have said they plan to release a total of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants.

The numbers, though, are in dispute. ICE officials said that it’s unclear how many ultimately might be released and that only 303 have been released from four Arizona facilities so far, though all those are in Pinal County. According to ICE, 2,280 detainees are still in custody in those facilities.

Babeu described the move as a “mass budget pardon” and suggested the administration was going to unnecessary lengths to demonstrate the impact of the so-called sequester.

“President Obama would never release 500 criminal illegals to the streets of his hometown, yet he has no problem with releasing them in Arizona. The safety of the public is threatened and the rule of law discarded as a political tactic in this sequester battle,” he said.

An ICE spokeswoman confirmed the plans without specifying how many illegal immigrants might be released.

Spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said ICE had directed field offices to make sure the “detained population” is “in line with available funding.” She stressed that ICE would continue to prosecute the cases while keeping them under supervision.

“Over the last week, ICE has reviewed several hundred cases and placed these individuals on methods of supervision less costly than detention,” she said. “All of these individuals remain in removal proceedings. Priority for detention remains on serious criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to public safety.”

The announcement comes after DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano on Monday warned about the potential impact of the cuts. She said the department “would not be able to maintain the 34,000 detention beds as required by Congress.”

“We’re doing our very best to minimize the impacts of sequester. But there’s only so much I can do,” she said. “I’m supposed to have 34,000 detention beds for immigration. How do I pay for those?”

    Obama is doing everything he can to disarm America, swell and arm the criminal element of our society with the end result being a complete collapse of life as we know it. And a big thanks to our elected traitors…

    • z b

      I had a good laugh on that one. Although I think Obama is a corrupt politicain, I don’t think he wants to destroy america – he needs it as socialist modal. LOL.

      • unclesamnephew

        and what does fundamental transformation mean to you? to most conservatives it means destruction.

        • z b

          I agree with you guy’s 100% on this one, a socialist America is destruction. I dont think he WANTS to destroy america, in his view socialism would be fixing america. But as for me, my grandparents went through socialism and it defiantly means destruction. Even China, where GDP growth is 8% it is only because they are starting to adopt to a free market economy.

          • StrangernFiction

            He and his comrades are deliberately taking away our freedom. That is intentionally destroying America.

      • aposematic

        socialist model=destruction… So yes, Obuma is destroying America.

      • DCGere

        Socialist model is a lib utopia that has brought nothing but destruction, debt, poverty, and death. Hey, we can all be miserable (except the elites of course)!

  • http://twitter.com/DanaZZGarcia Dana Garcia

    Yep, the Obamanoids couldn’t wait for the real sequester to kick in for them to release lawbreaking foreigners. After all, the illegals are future Democrats.

    • PhillyCon

      How so? Who’s going to report it?

      • DCGere

        No one. And none of the protected politicians will have to face any illegal criminals doing damage to them or their homes, nor taking away their jobs.

    There are already 800,000 running around that DHS has failed to deport. http://cowboybyte.com/16528/dhs-errors-let-800k-deported-illegal-aliens-stay-in-us-some-receiving-welfare-benefits/

    Why not a few more, especially in AZ. They voted McAmnesty back in again after he has been pro-amnesty for decades. He also met with Obama to iron out that pathway to citizenship. http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/mccain-guardedly-optimistic-immigration-reform-18570284

    It’s a done deal, 20 million of his and Rubio’s lovely illegal aliens plus Rubio wants their families to come here too, so more like 100 million.

    Obama isn’t done, he has already said that criminals will be released so the federal pens are likely next to be opened.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    The founders intent for the main duties of the federal government were to

    1. Defend the shores
    2. Establish a system of currency
    3. Deliver the mail
    4. Protect individual rights

    This administration, and the inaction of both houses have ignored the laws of this nation, and allowed millions to come through an open border undocumented. This includes potential terror threats due to middle eastern people coming through from South America. These people broke the laws of this nation and no nation can survive if one ignores the laws and not only allow the lawbreakers to remain free, but give aid and comfort to them, to the detriment of the citizens.
    What is it going to take for the Citizens to say enough is enough? This action by dear leader now is putting this nation’s citizens further at risk, and shows a complete dereliction of duty at least, bordering on treason and it’s GOT TO STOP!

    • Patriot077

      All I can say ABC is that we had better speak up now or never. The trouble is people have to work. No one has time to email and phone these bastards (excuse my language but I don’t feel like being polite to them) every five minutes. But that’s what it’s going to take. And we need to start visiting their local offices with our friends on a steady basis too.
      It just makes my blood run cold to think that Boehner and Company are such lily livered pantywaists. And McConnell should either buck up or put on his nightshirt and call it a day. He needs to be stirring up his fellow senators not pussy footing around Harry Reid. Has he no guts? Maybe we need to pump the water fountains full of testosterone in hopes some real men emerge. Do they honestly think their lives will be worth living if they give up America and her exceptional constitution?

      Maybe we should quit paying our taxes. We sure don’t get any representation for our money.

    • OneThinDime

      This is long past treason and not a peep out of the House of Reps. Jarrett promised revenge. Brewer took the Medicaid expansion and sold out AZ. McAmnesty is so pro-citizenship he is piddling his pants with anticipation.

      McAmnesty should be outraged and go on TV saying he and the other RINOs have pulled out of the Gang of 8, along with Gowdy and his amnesty crew, but nope, they will trade sequester for amnesty, just watch.

      We were also told that March 2013 was when Obama was going to make his move for martial law. That’s just a few days away and the fed gov’t is well-armed and ammo’d, more than enough to kill every American citizen many times over.

      Since we know he hates whites and his NBPP wants to kill crackers and cracker babies, guess it is starting.

  • notebene

    Yet another bully tactic from the Fascist in Chief. Despicable, but not surprising. Now you don’t have to be a citizen to vote…it was proven at the last banana republic farse, otherwise known as the November, 2012 “election”. The creep is still campaigning.

    Maybe i’m wrong, but wouldn’t it be the correct time to practice with our drones?
    Just askin’..

  • c4pfan

    The so called conservative talking heads would too. They are more concerned about Christie not being invited to CPAC.

  • wallwatchman

    This is crazy!!! Where is everybody! My rep and senator will be hearing from me, but I’m not holding my breath! Look at the damage this gov has done. They’ve caused me and many more citizens to be skeptical that we’ll ever be represented again! I’ll keep trying, but I’m losing hope that we really are a rep republic anymore! What’s left when you feel like voting and staying in contact with elected officials, is worthless and a waste of time?!

    • c4pfan

      It seems that way, doesn’t it? Do they not freaking listen?

      • wallwatchman

        They don’t listen, and that’s the problem! They live in their own little world, where their stupid decisions don’t affect their lives one iota! My life has changed drastically in the last four years, because of past and current decisions Washington has made, and I’m sick of it!! They need to stop making it harder to find work, keep up with bills without every darn tax going up, or putting in new ones! Ahhhhhh!! Do u gov hacks even see what you’re doing to us, or you’re just to comfortable in your bubble world to care?!

    • aposematic

      But…but…but; they are so much smarter than you…don’t you pay any attention to the MSM/Press…NOT!

      • wallwatchman

        Oh yea, forgot how much smarter ALL these people think they are than us:). That includes these gov hacks who think their hooty tooty education makes them more qualified for these jobs and to run my life! NOT!! I think the vast majority of us could do their jobs better than them…in our sleep! Go home!! All of you!!

    My bad. Hadn’t figured the sequester likely has them grounded, although I do feel safe

  • deeme

    Obama said ” there was no smart way to cut billions of dollars”..Well that right there proves you aren’t very smart..cause your way is to keep spending trillions..

    • c4pfan

    • stage9

      For Obama there isn’t a smart way for doing much of anything.

  • marketcomp

    All Governors in every State, especially the border States where violent illegals are released, tell their citizens to arm themeselves for protection.

    “Priority for detention remains on serious criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to public safety.”

    Obama voters?

  • Sober_Thinking

    I’m just about to the point where I need to take a break. This insanity just keeps coming.

    Every day… and day after day after day with this evil regime. It keeps hitting us on every single front. The economy…. aaaahhhh! Gay rights….. aaaahhhh! Illegal aliens accepted… aaaahhhh!!! Gun control… aaaahhhh!! Taxes… aaaahhhh! Muslim infiltration… aaaahhhh! Christians persecuted… aaaahhhh! Children indoctrinated through crooked schools… aaaahhhh! Polticians literally getting away with murder… On and on an on.

    I know many of us feel the same way… we’ve already gone way beyond anger and outrage. Our jaws are torqued. Our blood is boiling. Our increasingly broad backs are near the breaking point and more straws keep coming.

    I’m not discouraged… not really. The Bible says things like this will be coming on… and it’s gonna get worse. But I am physically sick to see the country that I served faithfully for 20 years – and veterans keep right on serving even after we retire – being pulled apart by wolves and betrayers. The heart can only take so much.

    Time to turn it all over to God. Give it to Him… he’s got the whole world in His hands. Time to apply the sweet salve of His Word to my heart. Not surrender from the fight… but surrender from being the fighter – let God do it for us. Pray for this nation. Pray for the Lord’s will to be done and pray that He gives us peace as we turn it all over to Him. We were not made to worry… we were not made to fear. Lean on God and let Him carry us through this present evil.

    My mind and heart can think of nothing better to do.

    • marketcomp

      Yes, give it all to God but fight also, Sober_Thinking. We need everyone in the fight, my friend!

      • Sober_Thinking

        I’m not giving in… But I am going to give it to God.

        I’m tired of the anger I’m allowing in my heart. I’m tired of all the evil that’s swelling in this world. Time to go back to the spring…

        Thanks for your response my friend. :)

        • PVG

          You are right Sober friend. I have let this insanity get the better of me and find myself consumed. I should be consumed with God’s word and will. I have been wrestling with this since the election and last Sunday we had a sermon that really spelled it out so even I could “get it”.
          I am heading for spring!!!

          • Sober_Thinking

            Thank you my friend. You said it better than I.

            I can find no peace in mankind… our leaders are all flaky and tyrants are rewarded. Cowards are released and traitors turn their back on Americans. Evil and corruption abounds. The election was a massive turning point for me too. So heart-breaking and wrong.

            I need to find peace through God and be more faithful to His Word. It’s funny how far I stray and it’s shocking to realize you’re far from the path and deep in the woods if you’re not careful. I’ve been trying to fight the shadows all by myself… unarmed in some cases. The Lord is my Sheppard… time to follow Him again – especially during these very troubling times.

            I appreciate your response.

  • Jaels_Song

    Speaking of the “death of the first born,” well, first of all, he got away with voting against viable abortion survivors, but … that wasn’t my original thought…

    My thought when I read “death of first born,” reminded me of when Obama first came into office he told Israel; “No natural growth.” I’ll be darn if he did not remind me of the Pharaoh of Egypt that ordered the Israelite’s to drown their sons in the Nile (you know, the Pharaoh who ended up drowning in the Nile himself).

    So, yeah… Obama would get away with it… for awhile.

  • guppymanster

    It amazes me that anyone is still shocked by this leftist. He has never done anything presidential since becoming president. He lied from the first day in office when he sealed all of his personal records. In fact, we don’t know who he really is to this day. He uses emotion to push his proposals. In 2010 he had people dressed in white coats behind him when he promoted Obama Care and after the shooting at Sandy Hook he had children behind him. He uses children as human shields to further his leftist agenda. The picture he attempts to present is, “Support my gun control proposals or else you hate children. You don’t hate children, do you?”
    He is personally responsible for the murder of four brave Americans at Benghazi and the press has been complicit or perhaps “unindicted co-conspirators”. He wants to bring America down and redistribute the wealth of this country. He, along with Eric Holder, are responsible for Fast and Furious and on and on. He is the lowest of the low and truly a reprehensible man.

  • notsofastthere

    Those on this and other posts know what Obama has done and plans to do. We still don’t feel the pain, because these criminals haven’t been released into our towns.
    BO is like a cancer that we aren’t taking care of. We plan to check it out in 2014 and again in 2016. By 2014 he (being the cancer) will have metastasized and it will be too late to undo what we have allowed him to do to us as a people.
    This cancer has to be impeached – he is selling our country out, not defending our laws, arming the Middle East, reducing our military, ignoring congress, and ruling by executive order.

    “I’m supposed to have 34,000 detention beds for immigration. How do I pay for those?” – Napolitano

    Deport them. That will free up the bed space. Oh, they can’t vote if they’re deported? Well, then I guess they’ll have to use absentee ballots. Problem solved.

    If any citizens are hurt by the release of these illegals criminals..who will be responsible for OUR citizens?? Certainly not this Government..but they’ll protect illegals in everyway.

    This is disgusting..these filthy illegal thugs are stealing and raping OUR country..and we basically stand by and do nothing.

    Just yesterday, I had to go to the south side of Tucson..and it no longer looks like an American nieghborhood, it’s as bad as Nogales, Mexico.
    It’s filthy..every sign is in Spanish, children wondering the streets, cats and dogs wondering the streets (starving), tagging everywhere with gang signs, most business is conducted in Spanish..and when a clerk does speak English you can barely understand..because most of the people living in this area ARE illegals..they care nothing for this city, state or country, living off their anchor babies food stamps, section 8, WIC, etc. Is all they care about..and they laugh at us, for they have taken over in that area of Tucson..and that’s what is happening all over this country.
