Obama: Kill the Sequester Or I’ll Flood the Streets With Illegal Aliens

Obama: Kill the Sequester Or I’ll Flood the Streets With Illegal Aliens


No, not a veiled threat.

This is pretty straight forward:

“In order to make the best use of our limited detention resources in the current fiscal climate and to manage our detention population under current congressionally mandated levels, ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen. “As a result of this review, a number of detained aliens have been released around the country and placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release.”

Christensen said ICE is continuing to prosecute their cases in immigration court and will seek their removal from the country.

“We’re getting reports from multiple detention centers in Texas, Florida and New Orleans where detainees who are low priority are being released in mass without bond,” Domenic Powell, a spokesman for the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, an immigration advocacy group, said Monday night.

The White House has warned of devastating across-the-board spending cuts scheduled to take place this week as part of a 2011 bipartisan deal to reduce the deficit by $1.2 trillion over the next decade. Janet Napolitano, head of the Department of Homeland Security, said Monday that the cuts would be “disruptive and destructive” to national security.

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also part of DHS, will be forced to reduce detention and removal and would not be able to maintain the 34,000 detention beds as required by Congress,” she said. “It would also reduce our investigative activities in areas like human smuggling and commercial trade fraud.”

      Because it’s not HIS country and we’re NOT his countrymen. He’s a total fraud. Just like this whole sequester thing is a total fraud. Not a single government entity will lose any funding. It is a 3.5% reduction in FUTURE SPENDING! Every time Obama wants to raise taxes again, he screams how the world will end if he doesn’t get it. He spreads fear and lies among the elderly and “vulnerable” citizenry. Last time it was to avoid the “fiscal cliff”, yet another completely fabricated lie.
      Obama’s task is to bring the collapse of the last, greatest bastion of individual freedom left in the world. And with the help of the 47% ignorant liberal masses, he just may pull it off. His illegal and unconstitutional attempts to disarm america is his last big hurdle. After that, it’ll be smooth sailing.
