Obama released illegal alien families into the US

"Well, look at how they lied and covered up the fact that ICE released 36,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions in 2013. Remember that? There were murderers and rapists in that release. So why should it surprise us when they refuse to tell us about releasing families. The Regime has a government to grow. The Regime has a party to grow here, and they're gonna do it one way or another." ~ El Rushbo
Yet another dereliction. Congress, hello? The citizenry is being illegally overrun here!
AP: The Obama administration has released into the US an untold number of immigrant families caught traveling illegally from Central America in recent months and although the government knows how many it’s released, it won’t say publicly.

Senior US officials directly familiar with the issue, including at the Homeland Security Department and White House, have so far dodged the answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that they did not know the figure or didn’t have it immediately at hand. “We will get back to you,” the Homeland Security deputy secretary said Friday.

The figure is widely believed to exceed 40,000 since October. It’s believed to be slightly below the roughly 52,000 children caught traveling illegally from Central America over the same period, an extraordinary increase since last year that is driving a humanitarian crisis at the border.

Despite promises to the contrary, this is how it looks when the image-conscious Obama administration doesn’t want to reveal politically sensitive information that could influence an important policy debate. The mystery figure is significant because the number of families caught crossing from Central America represents a large share of new immigration cases that will further strain the overwhelmed US immigration courts system. It also affects federal enforcement strategy, such as where to deploy the border patrol, and political calculations about whether Congress or the White House will relax American immigration laws or regulations before upcoming congressional elections in November.

Most of the immigrant families are from Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala and cannot be immediately repatriated, so the government has been releasing them into the US interior and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest US Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices. Despite promises for better transparency on immigration issues, the administration has been unwilling to say how many immigrant families it’s released or how many of those subsequently reported back to the government after 15 days as directed.
