When the federal agency charged with keeping Americans safe cannot or will not answer to the media about something as simple as where are missing illegals from Countries we are at war with, after releasing them, well we have a big problem Get Rid Of DHS And Let The States Take Care Of Themselves
Even as President Barack Obama continued the U.S. military intervention in Libyaâ€™s civil war–with armed Predator drones beginning patrols over that North African country on Thursday–U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the division of the Department of Homeland Security responsible for enforcing immigration laws, could not account for 10 Libyan men it had caught and released inside the United States since July 2009.
After two weeks of inquiries about the Libyans from CNSNews.com, ICE finally responded on Thursday afternoon that it had already released to CNSNews.com all the information that was â€œavailableâ€ on these Libyans and that the agency had â€œnothing more to add on the matter.â€
ICE describes itself as â€œthe principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the second largest investigative agency in the federal government.â€ It says its â€œprimary mission is to promote homeland security and public safety through the criminal and civil enforcement of federal laws governing border control, customs, trade, and immigration.â€
The information about the unaccounted-for Libyans derives from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that CNSNews.com filed with ICE on Dec. 1, 2010. This FOIA request asked for records about non-Mexican foreign nationals processed by ICE in fiscal years 2009 and 2010.
Our States do a much better job of protecting us as the DHS runs around like chickens with their heads cut off. It is DHS and their catch and release programs that have created chaos in States all across America. Here in Virginia, the State did the right thing and turned over an illegal with a record to DHS, they released him back out on the street and he killed a nun while drunk driving. That is the type of stupidity we get from federal government agencies all the day long. The federal government is too large, too inefficient and its time to pare it down and leave it up the States that which they will do better on any given day. Well Republican States that is!
