Administration Releases 2,228 Illegals from Nation's Jails
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton acknowledged Thursday that the agency has released a total of 2,228 illegal immigrants from local jails "throughout the country" between Feb. 9 and March 1 for "solely budgetary reasons."
He said they included detainees held on theft charges, financial criminals and drunken drivers. "In some cases, multiple DUIs," Morton acknowledged. He also said 10 individuals labeled as "Level 1" offenders -- the most serious classification -- were released, but that four have since been brought back into custody.
Oh good. That means that only six of the serious offenders have actually be unleashed on the civil society.
