Obama’s first sequester move: Releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers

posted at 4:01 pm on February 26, 2013 by Allahpundit

C’mon. What’s his next move, ordering the Border Patrol to stand down because he supposedly can’t afford to pay them? Oh, right. That is his next move.

This makes me more enthusiastic about the sequester, just because now I’m curious to see how derelict he’s willing to be in his duties to in the name of putting political pressure on the GOP. Next up: Suspending TSA checkpoints at America’s airports, maybe? Where else is he going to find two percent savings in three-plus trillion in spending?

In a highly unusual move, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of detainees from immigration detention centers around the country in an effort to save money as automatic budget cuts loom in Washington, officials said…

The agency, Ms. Christensen added, “is continuing to prosecute their cases in immigration court and, when ordered, will seek their removal from the country.”

Officials did not reveal precisely how many detainees were released or where the releases took place, but immigrants’ advocates around the country have been reporting that hundreds of detainees were freed in numerous locations , including Hudson County, N.J.; Polk County, Texas; Broward County, Fla.; and New Orleans; and from centers in Arizona, Alabama, Georgia and New York.

While immigration officials occasionally free detainees on supervised release, this mass release — so many in such a short span of time — appears to be unprecedented in recent memory, immigration advocates said.

Mark Krikorian calls this the “never let a sequester go to waste” strategy, in which O achieves two goals in one fell swoop — turning up the heat on the GOP to cave on cuts, yes, but also tossing the amnesty fans in his base a bone by reducing border enforcement on the very day that he’s meeting with McCain and Graham at the White House to talk immigration reform. Question for liberals: If he’s suddenly all about penny-pinching in base-pleasing ways, how about getting him to cancel the next year of federal marijuana prosecutions for nonviolent offenders instead? After all, the “waves” of illegals released today will all be legal soon enough. If you’re looking to seize an opportunity for a little emergency cost-cutting social engineering, rolling back the drug war is in more dire need of a jumpstart than immigration.

Via Mediaite, here’s Andrew Napolitano musing about the legal consequences for a president who deliberately seeks to make the federal government perform more poorly than it has to.

“You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble. You’d think maybe you wouldn’t but actually you become more humble–you realize what you don’t know,” Obama said.

“You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can’t do things by yourself. That’s not how our system works. You’ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress, and what that means is you’ve got to make sure that constituents of members of Congress are putting some pressure on them, making sure they’re doing the right thing.”

OhEssYouCowboys on February 26, 2013 at 4:07 PM

C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job. 

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.

Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or “more revenue” as he likes to call it. The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.

If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.

If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.

If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then let’s stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

Two Party Evil Money Cult in Washingtont D.C..

Enabled by the GNN (Goebbles News Networks).

The “Staff” of the Cult, the hired hands get their paychecks re-filed by OUR TAX MONEY THE WITHHOLDING.

Some of U.S. have run out of withholding to hand off.

What is going on is the testing.

The commie Democrats led by this doper test us now.

So far we have failed.

Obama will not stop until we stop him via a cut of of tax money or votes.

There are Democrats now who are looking at the deal close.

Do they want to join him in the rath “We The People” will push back with soon.

Many a thug has over bet a bad hand.

tick tock goes the explosive clock….

Question for liberals: If he’s suddenly all about penny-pinching in base-pleasing ways, how about getting him to cancel the next year of federal marijuana prosecutions for nonviolent offenders instead? After all, the “waves” of illegals released today will all be legal soon enough. If you’re looking to seize an opportunity for a little emergency cost-cutting social engineering, rolling back the drug war is in more dire need of a jumpstart than immigration.

Strategy. Specifically, election strategy, i.e. votes. illegal aliens will very likely vote a straight “D” ticket, when delivered to the polls by SEIU, etc. Potheads, by comparison, probably won’t even bother to show up.

Registering illegal aliens to vote is a bit more difficult (not to mention entirely illegal) than registering the average doper. But the Dems believe it’s worth it because they can be pretty sure the illegal alien will show up at the polls on Election Day, while the doper might not pull the right lever even if bussed in and “helped” in the booth.

It’s a question of focus. The Dems, especially Obama, are focused on the creation of a huge voting bloc that will guarantee them a lock on power for the next several decades. Something that the “doper freako vote” has manifestly failed to do for them for the last several, no matter how many times the Dems promised them Taxpayer-Funded Free Dope For Life.

They just kept on tokin’, and forgot about votin’.

The Dems want a strong horse pulling their wagon. And that’s the illegals, right now.

I’ll take the hit if it means people get to see Barry the Man-Child again.

The only way I am interested in seeing him again, is dangling from a hangman’s noose the day after being convicted of TREASON and attempting to overthrow the United States Constitution.

If you haven’t already, read anything by Robert Conquest. His books on the subject are simply magnificent.

Absolutely brilliant stuff.

Go to Amazon and download a free sample if you have a kindle Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956

I started it last night and just the introduction will scare the crap out you with the parallels of what happened then and what is happening in the US right now.
