New lie from Obama administration: Released illegals weren’t criminals

Last year President Barack Hussein Obama was awarded the “Lie of the Year” from the Washington Post over his “you can keep your doctor line.” Didn’t think he could top that whopper? Ha. Here comes another one with potentially dangerous consequences for Americans.

As reported by Breitbart, “The Obama Administration lied last year when they informed Congress and the public that the 2,200 people that the Administration released from incarceration to save money had only minor criminal records. USA TODAY, gaining the data from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) through the Freedom of information Act, reports that some of the illegal immigrants had been charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking, and homicide. After the new information was released, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen protested, “Discretionary releases made by ICE were of low-level offenders. However, the releases involving individuals with more significant criminal histories were, by and large, dictated by special circumstances outside of the agency’s control.”

I wonder what defines “special circumstances outside of the agency’s control?” Would that happen to be “politics?” I wouldn’t put it past the vindictive nature of Valerie Jarrett and Barack Obama – after all, they closed veterans’ memorials – to do such a thing. Was it the intent of the Obama administration to use “sequestration” as a punishment upon the American people by placing fiscal restraints on agencies such as ICE, forcing them to release hardened illegal immigrant criminals?

Here is the background to the situation. As Breitbart reports, “ICE releases immigrants with serious criminal records only if their legal status has changed or if they cannot be deported. Every illegal immigrant held in jail costs ICE an average of $122 a day. Last year, GOP members asked ICE Director John Morton for specifics about the immigrants the agency had released. Rep. J. Randy Forbes, R-VA, asked Morton, “No one on that list has been charged or convicted with murder, rape or sexual abuse of a minor, were they?” Morton responded, “They were not.” He added that none of the released immigrants had been charged with child pornography charges. White House spokesman Jay Carney echoed that the prisoners who were released were “low-risk, non-criminal detainees.”

“However, an ICE spreadsheet reveals one immigrant from Texas had been charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexually assaulting a child, and others had charges including armed assaults or assaulting police officers. One immigrant had been charged with conspiracy to commit homicide. Two more had charges of aggravated assault using a weapon, and another had been charged with sexual assault.”

I know what you’re thinking — what can be done about the corruption, lies, and deceit of the Obama administration? Well the immediate remedy is to remove Harry Reid from the post of Senate Majority Leader. After all, Obama stated his policies were on the ballot this midterm election cycle — including lies like this one about illegals. This lie puts American citizens at risk, and that is unconscionable.

Breitbart says, “Morton had informed Congress that of the over 2,200 immigrants ICE released, 629 had criminal records, all of them misdemeanors “or other criminals whose prior conviction did not pose a violent threat to public safety.” Of course, Morton did not mention the 144 other released immigrants who were filed under “special issues.” They were largely released because ICE had six months to jail them legally if the agency could not deport them.”

Of course, all of this comes to light at the time when there is NO ONE in Washington D.C. until a week after the midterm election, and you can bet that in a lame duck session, this won’t be considered — especially not in a Harry Reid-controlled Senate.

I hope you’ll keep this in mind as you head to the polling booth — hopefully those with accurate voting processes and machines — and recall that Obama promised the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Foundation he would find a way to implement an executive order amnesty — another of Obama’s policies which are on the ballot.

The fundamental transformation of America includes the demographic transformation of our Republic — by any means necessary — which apparently includes placing your public safety in danger.
