As many know, in preparation for the sequestration cuts, the Department of Homeland Security released hundreds of illegal immigrant prisoners. Because preparation for the zombie apocalypse and protecting Lake McConaughy, Nebraska from a sneak underwater Al Qaeda attack is much more important than keeping criminals locked up. No, really! See here and here.
Fortunately, Janet Napolitano has some real ‘take charge’ underlings working for her. While she was dithering about what to do about these looming cuts, her underlings made the command decision to release the prisoners.
Sadly, because Napolitano doesn’t use email, and the underlings don’t know how to use a telephone, or some such, apparently no one informed the head of Department of Homeland Security. From ABC…..
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had no part in a decision by underlings to release low-risk illegal immigrant detainees as a way to save money before the sequestration and was surprised to learn about it, Napolitano told ABC News in an exclusive interview. ……
When asked why the detainees were in jail in the first place, Napolitano replied, “That’s a good question. I’ve asked the same question myself … so we’re looking into it.”
And then ABC goes on to quote Napolitano about how bad the sequester cuts are going to be….. as if she knew anything.
Can someone wake us from this nightmare called the Obama administration? Can we also please have some journalists?
