Hey, Remember Those 2,228 Illegal Immigrants We Released And Blamed It On Sequester Cuts?

Yeah, “Many” Of Them Are Drunk Drivers…

( – The director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement told members at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday that some of the 2,228 incarcerated illegal aliens who were released in recent weeks included many who have been convicted of drunk driving.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) grilled John Morton during a hearing on the releases, which Morton blamed on the federal budget cuts required by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

Gowdy asked if Level 2, or illegal aliens convicted of multiple misdemeanors or certain kinds of felonies, that were released included those who had committed Driving Under the Influence or DUI offenses.

“Did you release any recidivist drunk drivers?” Gowdy said.

“Yes,” Morton said.

“How many?” Gowdy asked.

“I don’t have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had DUI offenses,” Morton said.

    Lol. I'm going to use this line of reasoning at work next time someone asks me for specifics. "How many patients have we readmitted within 30 days, post op?"

    "I'm not sure but we have had some return"

  • Thought they were all supposed to be under supervised release w/ ankle bracelets & such. I guess if they turn around & repeat the offense, they'll end up back in jail. Hopefully they don't take out anyone innocent while they do it.

    Yup and one of those illegals happened to be Obama's half-brother !! Of course boarder patrol had to let him go. Even after he nearly ran his SUV into a police cruiser and later failed several sobriety tests outside some restaurant
