Napolitano: Not sure why
released detainees were
in jail in the first place

Washington Examiner, by Michal Conger

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/1/2013 12:10:32 PM

Not only was Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano surprised when the people who work for her released hundreds of illegal immigrants this week, but she doesn’t know why those detainees were in jail in the first place, she told ABC News on Thursday. “That’s a good question. I’ve asked the same question myself,” she admitted. “So we’re looking into it.” Napolitano also said the release was poorly timed. “Do I wish that this all hadn’t been done all of a sudden and so that people weren’t surprised by it? Of course,” she said. But, Napolitano explained,

FTA: "“That’s a good question. I’ve asked the same question myself,” she admitted. “So we’re looking into it.” Napolitano also said the release was poorly timed. “Do I wish that this all hadn’t been done all of a sudden and so that people weren’t surprised by it? Of course,” she said."

Yes, I´m sure she was sitting around scratching her rear end, completely baffled by all of this. Then she says the release was "poorly timed". So was it planned and someone screwed up the timing? And then she says she wished it hadn´t been done "all of a sudden" so people weren´t surprised by it? This means the release was planned all along.

Napolitano is surely the dumbest of the dumb.

There will be an investigation by the House, Janet, Obumbo, and everyone one else in the administration will claim ignorance (which goes without saying) and the news media will only declare this as another witch hunt by republicans. They will stall until everyone gets tired of it.

The lowest cost for DHS and ICE is to release a suspected illegal alien on their own recognizance until their Immigration Court Hearing. The second least expensive option is to deport them. The most expensive option is to hold them until their hearing and then deport them.

Does ICE not know how to decide who gets detained? Have we been detaining the first time visitors with minor traffic tickets while the rapists have been released on their own recognizance?

By appointing deeply stupid people to most high ranking federal offices ( I need not give examples.) ValJar is preparing us to agree with the coming ´transformation´ where all power is centralized in a more ´streamlined´ and efficient control center. By poisoning the system with incompetents she has already accomplished several important goals. ( for the LOFO market)

1- Conspicuously ignorant department heads (and Vice-Presidents) serve to make Barky look smarter.

2-These same people know that they were hired for their loyalty not their ability so they don´t get in the way of ValJar´s micromanagement.

3-Each mounting outrage boils the frog sloooooooowwwwwly.

Can we please stop using the word "repugs" on this forum? It is a leftist pejorative and I do not appreciate it because the actual party is the people--not the elected politicians.

Now, for this article...I can´t believe she would be so dumb as to say something like that in the first place. That would be like admitting that you either don´t know what your people are doing or that your department often incarcerates people for no reason and violates their rights. One or the other...of course, we know it is the first in most cases.

Incompetent? Dumb? No, Napolitano is doing exactly what Obama wants her to, and it is a classib Obama double game: get street cred with the Hispanic community for easing immigration, while appearing indignant when blowback appears. Napolitano´s response -- claiming ignorance -- is par for the course with this administration, and kept Obama´s fingerprints off the action. You get promoted for that kind of loyalty, not fired.

"After all, what´s the difference? By now they´d all be in their 20s and 30s - - if they were still alive - - and we wouldn´t recognize them anyway."

She should simply ask the immigration judges why they are detaining illegal aliens, as every illegal alien who is detained has a right to post an amount of bail, and have a bail hearing before an immigration judge.

Usually there are two reasons why an illegal alien is detained, either he or she is deemed to be a danger to the community, or the judge has reason to believe that once released, that the illegal alien will not return for his or her future court hearings.

The reason for such determinations is that a lot of illegal aliens are dangerous criminals and historically about 90% of released illegal aliens abscond and do not return for their future court hearings or for deportation.

If you believe the statements (in many cases under oath, testifying before Congress) made by Janet Napolitano, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Obama, and others, not a single member of Obama’s cabinet has ever made a single decision regarding any action, campaign or program involving their agency or department. All decisions are made by mid-level bureaucrats, without their approval or knowledge. This has been this administration’s go-to excuse for Fast & Furious, dropping charges against the Black Panthers, Benghazi, the moratorium on off-shore drilling, the release of thousands of illegal aliens awaiting deportation, and countless other screw-ups.

If an officer of a company ever tried to use that excuse – to the CEO, Board of Directors, or stockholders – they would be out of a job in no time. But in the Obama Administration, it’s the excuse they have used for everything. And every single time they have used it, the MSM has looked the other way.

It’s a LoFo (LOw inFOrmation) epidemic that has infected all of DC, the MSM, 50+% of voters and is spreading like wildfire. The only known cure is the truth and a conscience.

No one knows anything? Who believes that low level bureaucrats would decide to let convicts go free in Arizona without up-line approval? I would bet my bottom dollar that Obama gave the final okay and the message was passed down to Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano. Why was not Arizona Governor Brewer advised? No one will say. Who sent out UN Ambassador Rice out to the Sunday TV talk shows to claim the Libyan attacks on our embassy in Bengasi was because of a video? No one will say. Why was no one every brought to justice for the loss of lives and property in Bengasi? No one will say. Who were responsible for “Fast and Furious? No one will say. Every heard of “the Chicago way”? THIS IS THE CHICAGO WAY. Our God did not intend his children to behave this way.

How long will it be until principled democrats (oxymoron) stand up against Obama and his thuggish regime? In any group of men there are usually some within the ranks with the courage to put self-interest and safety aside to speak out. It was a handful of courageous men who pledged their lives, their fortunes and sacred honor in signing their names to the Declaration of Independence. Even within the British House of Commons there were brave men who passionately opposed King George III in prosecution of the war against the rebellious American colonists. In the American colonies one third were British loyalists; one third were ambivalent. But one third supported independence. Where are such patriots today among the democrats? Where are they?

#25, I´d love to meet you and perhaps have tea and talk. Maybe, just maybe, you would then stop ad hominem attacks and focus on relevancies. Yes, the policies of Napolitano and Reno are and were repugnant. As are also are/were those of Menendez, Spitzer, Ted The Swimmer, Bloomberg, Pelosi and a whole lot of other Ds who are most likely heterosexual. I think you have good points to make, but when they are prefaced by spitting out the word "butch" they sort of lose their punch.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb. Stokes, a legend in the civil-rights history of Ohio´s populous

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
