Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Political Stunt Related to Looming Sequester Results in Release of Immigrant Detainees

Rate this Entry

Yesterday, social media was all a buzz with rumors that nationwide low-priority immigrant detainees were being released from detention faciltities.  Turns out the rumors were true.  ICE spokesperson Gillian Christiansen confired the reports stating: "ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding."


I have heard that many/most of the individuals being released have been detained for minor traffic offenses, or other low level violations, in some instances for many months.  These people should have been released months ago.


Does anyone else find it troubling that it takes a political stunt related to a budget shortfall for the administration to actually implement their "smart" enforcement guidelines?


Par for the course.
