WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- The Obama administration violated the law when it released thousands of illegal immigrants last February, more than 600 of whom had criminal records, according to an internal audit released Tuesday that blamed the problem on poor planning and bad leadership from Washington, the Washington Times reported.
Compounding matters, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gave bad information to Congress about the releases, initially blaming the looming budget sequester rather than the agency’s own budget pressures, the Homeland Security inspector general concluded.
The new surge of illegal immigrant children and families on the U.S.-Mexico border has put illegal immigration back on the front burner as the Obama administration tries to grapple with how to detain and deport the tens of thousands who are now flooding into Texas. -- Source
