How much is Pakistan earmarked to receive?
This goes to far.
Pure political move. We all know the "sequestration scare" is just
another doom-and-gloom scare tactic being played by both sides in Washington.
Fact is, Washington spends too much money. This $85 billion is a drop in the
ocean and amounts to only 3 cents on every dollar. I wish the sequestration was
higher and we could have real budget reductions, but until Washington stops
using base-line budgeting, the spending will be higher and higher.
I'm familiar with this game. It's called, "Good Cop/Bad Cop".
White House: "Those dang DHS folks"!If you arrive a
work late too many times - you'll surely be reprimanded and maybe fired.
This guy can order the release of folks that don't belong in our country -
ZERO CONSEQUENCE. Greater responsibility, greater accountability?
NOT IN AMERICA! The mass-releasing of "prisoners" is not a
new "political" scheme. It's been done before by sinister men for
. . . let's say . . . purposes that are not innocent or pure... The amount of political stupidity mixed with corruption is an age old problem
but now with modern stakes (read: rewards). It will come to a head soon...“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can
bet it was planned that way.” -Franklin D. RooseveltThis applies to
ALL politicians - both sides of the isle.
And why do we have the second amendment, To protect ourselves from stupid people
who run our country.
They could of been deported instead, for a lot less money in the long run. Add this official walking away after seeing this injustice, add in the
ICE labor union going to court against Obama's waivers. Plus the
administration just purchase 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition and sniper rounds
for DHS. This is what happens when your tear a department apart, and
refuse to enforce the laws. Just one question, who will the rounds of ammunition
be unes against? the citizens, ice?
Since the early Bush years detention space has been an enforcement game.Very little of the bed space is actually in federal facilities. Most is
rented from county jails or contracted out to for-profit prison companies.All the while prisons are empty and could have been used to house detainees.
(Case in point is the Thomson prison in western Illinois.)Obama threw a
wrinkle in the program by insisting that the detainees be housed in
dormitory-like facilities with cooking classes, dance lessons and conjugal
visits. And free medical/dental care.At the heart of the problem is
detention time. 20 days ought to be the limit in clearing people for
deportation but we stretch it out for years.Sorry to ramble on but this
program is just another case of Washington doing everything but enforcing
immigration law and simply deporting illegal aliens promptly.
John Woodward, Washington Post senior editor and solid liberal has called
Obama's actions "madness". It is like we are reliving Fidel
Castro's release of Cuba's mental patients some thirty plus years ago.
We have a president who is not representing the people.He is simply a liberal
Democrat and that who he represents. It is time for the media to research the
news and quit being a silly lapdog for this president.
If Congress doesn't allocate the money for government services, those
services disappear. Its not rocket science.
The person who created sequester is the one same who is against it, and blaming
republicans.I don't get it.
How long till these illegal immigrants qualify for benefits?Our
commander is showing leadership?
To cjb...The sequester hadn't even started yet, when these prisoners
were released. And even if it had, it doesn't actually effect any
government agency for approximately a month. Therefore, this was political thru
and thru. The head of the organization knew he was quitting, and knew it would
be controversial, so waited until the very day he was leaving before pulling
this stunt. Also, please note that the Obama administration didn't
criticize the move at all. Instead, they tried to justify it... even while
saying they weren't notified beforehand. This prisoner release falls
exactly in line with the other actions Obama has been doing in regard to dealing
with illegal aliens... allowing big groups to "legally" and indefinitely
stay, and also strongly pushing for an amnesty for the rest. All for political
gain. Had 70% of the Hispanic vote been for the Republicans instead of Democrats
in November, you can bet your bottom dollar his actions regarding this
controversial issue would be entirely different. He's now simply rewarding
them for their votes and trying to keep them. Pure politics all the way.
Can this lead to civil unrest, and rioting?Not good leadership.
