    Release of about 300 illegal immigrants from federal custody in Arizona stirs up...

    The release of about 300 illegal immigrants from federal custody in Arizona this week has raised a firestorm of controversy in this volatile border state, which has one of the nation’s toughest laws against illegal immigration and is home to highly vocal groups on both sides of the debate.

    Senior Republican officials in the state, including Gov. Jan Brewer and Sen. John McCain, sharply criticized the releases, which the Obama administration said it is carrying out in several states in anticipation of budget cuts under sequestration. Brewer, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration, called the move “pure political posturing” that would endanger public safety.

    Jumping the gun a bit aren't we? Is this political grandstanding at its best?

    Great idea! The states should follow this federal lead, to save money, of course. Release all non-violent prisoners, on parole conditions of never returning to that state and drop them off in DC.

    My understanding is that a lot of them are being released with ankle bracelets saving about $125/day/prisoner and these are people who are illegal but were picked up on minor charges like driving without a license. It isn't like murderers are being turned loose.

    First I've heard about the ankle bracelet thing, I think you have been the victim of a con job.

    Why would they do that....for the State of Indiana Home Monitoring Cost 300 a week. They would lose money to release those off home monitoring who are almost done with their time.

    Course there were some strategists that thought Obama might try and Cherry Pick Programs to make as bad as he was saying with the Sequester and that he would do so in Republican States first.

    The short answer is Obama is not planning to deport them but to grant them amnesty instead so to the democrats they are future voters.......
