The Associated Press has learned that the Homeland Security Department official in charge of the agency's immigration enforcement and removal operations has resigned after hundreds of illegal immigrants were released from jails because of government spending cuts.

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.
Fall guy (or gal).
Did the bus even slow down?
Window dressing.He was probly retiring any way.Will probly get full benis.
What a crock of BS
Fall guy (or gal).
This is such BS I want to vomit all over 0dumbo
I wonder what kind of severance package this person got so 9dumbo could blame someone besides him
Good Grief he is taking this country down so fast and there is not a way to stop it
The way Sheriff Paul Babeu speaks, illegals were sent to his jail from elsewhere and then released.
The dude is leaving at the end of April....big deal....
Meanwhile, Obama remains unscathed....
"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."
Exactly....Wonder how much they were paid?
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.
What a bunch of cr4p. He isn’t leaving till the end of April. Why not right away. I call this a fall guy move. I bet they still will get full benefits.
Not even his administration knows what is going on. WHO's RUNNING THIS country?
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.
So, is this a State Department dismissal (reassigned) or a private sector dismissal (your ass is gone!)?
We could never stop it. It IS coming down—it is just a matter of when. It is like a sickness, the sooner we barf to eliminate this sickness from our body, the sooner we can begin to heal.
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 hear you, it’s very vague.
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.
He's probably up for a promotion.

I don’t see the problem. He was only doing what the White House wanted - exaggerating the effect of the sequester.
I bet you nailed it.
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.
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).
The republicans DO control the House and have controlled it when Obama has done worse things. Make sure you also lean over John Boehner's lap with 1/3 of your vomit.
Did I hear Rush mention 30,000 ILLEGALS were released and DHS still had an additional 3,000 empty beds?
Try something and if doesn't work and backfires, throw some flunky under the bus.
Now try something again and if doesn't work and backfires, ..............
Repeat as needed, the MSM has our backs.
Castro had the Mariel boatlift. Obama needs to do SOMETHING similar.
So far there has not been one thing Obama has done for the American people. NOT ONE THING.
Dangit boy, did you just cut/paste that off the DUmp?
Not good enough. He needs to go keep the last cot warm until we get the all the criminals recaptured. It’s a good deal, he would get three hots with that cot.
Stupid AP headline..
these are not “immigrants”, these are illegal alien invaders
Bullcrap. They were released because Obastard told them to release them.
According to that popcorn-fart that does the daily Presser, the first the White Hut heard about this was in this morning’s NYT.
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!
