As you know, I have had a problem with the Department of Homeland Security regarding my mother who entered the country legally. They have been a thorn in my family’s side and I have been following what the say and do, more closely than the average citizen.
I will start with what they have already done on a possibility that something may happen in the future. Federal immigration officials have already released thousands of detainees (read illegal immigrants) from detention centers around the country. There may be more.
Now, in August 2011, Obama’s policy was that the Department of Homeland Security would no longer spend our limited resources to apprehend illegal immigrants who don’t have criminal records. Under current U.S. code, entering the United States illegally is usually a civil infraction and not a criminal one. Last week, Press Secretary Jay Carney assured reporters that those being released were “low-risk non-criminal detainees.”
This administration freed some of the very people that it wasn’t supposed to have locked up in the first place. Are they criminal detainees or are they hard-working people looking for a better life? You can’t have it both ways.
Recently, The New York Times had an article about Anthony Orlando Williams, a 52 year old Jamaican who was released last week. “I’m good, man,” he said. “I’m free.” I say you’re a piece of shit who needs to be in jail or deported. According to the article, he overstayed a visa in 1991, was detained in 2010 by a sheriff’s deputy in Georgia when it was discovered that he violated probation for a conviction of simple assault, simple battery and child abuse. So, we have someone who violated probation, committed assault and battery, and the worst charge – child abuse. He gets released?? How is this guy not a felon?? Who else is released into our communities? Mr. Williams was released last Friday. “That was a long, long, long run,” he said of his detention, adding that he has an appointment this Friday at an immigration office in Atlanta at which he expects to receive the terms of his supervised release — “a list of things I have to abide by.” What makes anyone believe this illegal will abide by a list of things? The very definition of probation is – the testing or trial of a person’s conduct, character, qualifications, or the like. HE FAILED!
It is clear to me that this administration is using the sequester as a convenient excuse to bow to political pressure from the amnesty groups and it has no commitment to enforcing our laws.
Now, this may be a stretch but the Feds policy on releasing (How many? Nobody will say for sure.) scumbags like the above may increase gun sales. If their actions show they are not going to enforce the law and protect the citizenry, then we must protect ourselves.
