There have been no baseline-budgeting "spending cuts" yet.

And they aren't actually cuts, they are just a failure to increase spending.

The same amount will be spent this year as next year.

The lies these people tell.

The way Sheriff Paul Babeu speaks, illegals were sent to his jail from elsewhere and then released.

The left wing will wait and see if this issue blows up, then the narrative will be:

"You xenophobic right wing bigots only seem to care about brown-skinned immigrant criminals, not our pink-skinned domestic citizen criminals. If the GOPthuglicans weren't holding America hostage during sequester, these criminals wouldn't be loose on the streets. I, for one, hope that one of these criminals MURDERS the child of a budget-cutting Repukelican member of congress. It would be justly deserved. Besides, the I.C.E. director who resigned is a racist."

My take is that the person resigned because he can’t do his job. Not that he is the fall guy.

I read an article last night on azstarnet.com or kgun9.com in which Paul Babeu said he was told 500 immigrants had been released and that he was told after the fact by people who work for the Border Patrol. It was not an official communication. It sounded like these people did not approve.

Those illegals were probably not arrested for picking lettuce illegally. They are criminals. Now we have released criminals roaming around in areas they are not familiar with and they are in need of money and transportation. Look for an increase in car thefts and burglaries in the areas near those ICE detention centers.

Seems to be a lot of smoke, something unusual going on here. Maybe some of the aliens were charged with crimes but not convicted? I don’t see why the dems would be running so fast from this. They have released thousands of illegals recently. I don’t see why a few hundred more would be a big deal. Doesn’t add up.

Staged 'fall guy' for the appearance of accountability. 0bama is black and therefore immune from punishment.

So, is this a State Department dismissal (reassigned) or a private sector dismissal (your ass is gone!)?

Can we have a face and a name! Or is this a ghost person!
We talk about deceased voters we prob pay deceased workers!
When was that last time this person clocked in?
And this employee sure has a lot of power for one person! I would think this dismissal would have to have gone before some committee and if so all should resign or be fired!
Were voter registration cards and welfare documents given out when they were released?

My initial assumption was that this guy resigned in disgust after the release of illegal aliens ordered by the Obama administration as part of their fake “sequestration narrative”. Many posters seem to think he is being “thrown under the bus” as a scapegoat for the release — but that would carry an admission that the release was improper — thus counter to the narrative. The article doesn’t really say. What was the guy’s actual motivation?

I suspect they are anticpiating, or at minimum fearing worst case scenarios post-release. Sort of premeptive manuever.

Perhaps obama and feinstein will try to make sharpened weapons illegal as well, in that so many members of obama’s administration are falling on their swords to give him cover.

I don’t see the problem. He was only doing what the White House wanted - exaggerating the effect of the sequester.

Gee.....the Obama regime is releasing real, hard-core criminals....even while attempting to disarm law-abiding Americans and/or attempting to make criminals of us all via new, draconian, anti-gun ownership laws.

And this is only the beginning (of America’s end).

I’m only guessing. It could be that the guy is a liberal nut and thinks that there is no such thing as an illegal. I don’t know. I am sure we will learn more soon. I got the impression from things Sheriff Babeu said to the media that there are folks in ICE who are not happy.

I wouldn't get too excited about Gary Mead's resignation. It is just more of the Washington Kabuki Theater. All designed for the Low Information Voter (LIV). My guess is, Gary Mead is close enough to retirement (or has a higher paying job lined up) and high enough on the food chain to used as a sacrificial lamb.
As Rush says, this president has managed to convince the LIV that he is not responsible for anything in Washington. Zero, Zip, Nada. So they announce that the White House and Homeland Security knew nothing of this and Mead ‘resigns’. LIV now thinks Broncho Bamma is still as pure as the new fallen snow. Wait! That could be racist so scratch that.
Broncho Bamma is a pure as the coal dust covering the Lehigh Valley.

And that's where we need to expose them of the racists they are for implying that only non-white humans are prone to breaking laws and know no better because of the color of their skin.

I doubt it. I'm sure that's one type of fatal result (the main victim being the truth) that they heartily approve. They'd probably even make an exception for true automatic weapons if needed to give them sufficient cover(ups).

REWRITE AS OF 5:04PM:

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The senior Homeland Security Department official in charge of arresting and deporting illegal immigrants announced his retirement the same day the agency said that hundreds of people facing deportation had been released from immigration jails due to looming budget cuts, according to a letter obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. The government said he had told his bosses weeks ago that he planned to retire.

 

Hope his insurance is paid up!
