The Obama Administration blamed Secretary of Homeland Security for the decision to release hundreds of illegal immigrants in Texas, Louisiana and Florida.
They’re blaming Big Sis Janet Napolitano.
The Politico reported:
The White House was unaware of Immigration Customs and Enforcement’s decision to release detainees until the agency announced it, press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.
“This was a decision made by a career officials at ICE without any input from the White House, as a result of fiscal uncertainty over the continuing resolution, as well as possible sequestration,” Carney said.
ICE announced Tuesday that it has released several hundred undocumented immigrants in recent weeks as funding cuts loom. The detainees will instead be monitored in less expensive ways, the agency said.
