Virginia Official Calls for Congress to Subpoena ICE Records on Releasing Illegals

Powered by Topple

Editor’s Note – It is a well known little secret that the Obama administration is all but ignoring this nation’s immigration laws.

As reported earlier this week, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council — an AFL-CIO affiliate — and affiliated local councils cast a unanimous 259-0 vote of no confidence in ICE Director John Morton and Assistant Director Phyllis Coven. 

The NICEC criticized the directors for “misguided and reckless initiatives,” and said their leaders have “abandoned the Agency’s core mission of enforcing United States immigration laws and providing for public safety, and have instead directed their attention to campaigning for policies and programs related to amnesty.”

Is there anyone out there who believes these decisions are being made by I.C.E. officials?  Absolutely not!  What Obama and the Progressive Left continue to ignore is that these actions are putting American lives at risk on a daily basis, as we see here.

America was founded on the basic belief that we are a nation of laws, not men.  When a President and a government place themselves above the law by selectively enforcing it, we can no longer refer to this government as an American form of government.

   

Virginia Official Calls for Congress to Subpoena ICE Records on Releasing Illegals

As a Bolivian native faces charges for killing a nun while drunk driving, a Virginia official is calling on Congress to subpoena Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to find out how many criminal illegal immigrants referred for deportation are released back into the communities where they were picked up.

Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County, Va., board of supervisors, said his county’s police referred Carlos Martinelly Montano for deportation twice in the past after he served sentences for drunk driving convictions. But immigration officials released Montano, who allegedly killed Sister Denise Mosier and injured two other nuns in the Aug. 1 accident, on his own recognizance pending a deportation hearing.

“Regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on, or on this issue, we can all agree that if you are an illegal alien and you’ve committed a crime, that you should be deported afterward,” Stewart told Fox News on Friday. “But this guy had been twice handed over to immigration officials and twice released back into the community even though there was an immigration detainer on him. And of course he’s gone right back out and committed the same crime and killed a nun.”

Stewart accused the Obama administration of a policy of “deliberately underfunding and understaffing immigration enforcement” so that officials are left without detention facilities to place illegal aliens who are awaiting deportation after serving time for criminal convictions.

“I want the Obama administration to come clean with the American people about its policy of releasing illegal aliens who localities and other law enforcement officials have identified as illegal aliens who have committed crimes, and the Obama administration is simply turning around and releasing these dangerous individuals back into neighborhoods,” Stewart said.

Montano, who allegedly crashed head-on into the vehicle carrying the three nuns, was arrested and charged for drunk driving, involuntary manslaughter and driving on a revoked license. It is possible he could face a murder charge.
