‘Impeachable Offenses’: Obama Policy Releases Criminal Illegal Aliens

Posted on | May 19, 2014 | 7 Comments

A new book exposes malfeasance by President Obama, and the administration’s defenders are trying to “kill the messenger”:

Houston immigration attorney Raed Gonzalez claims the controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s release of tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens is just a “publicity stunt” generated by the authors of a book documenting the case for impeaching Obama.
Gonzalez has been the liaison between the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which administers the immigration court system, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Asked about the scandal on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Gonzalez told the audience, “I think all of you fell for the publicity stunt of Mr. Elliott and miss, miss, what was it, Brenda Elliot and Mr. Aaron Klein, with their book, ‘Impeachable Offenses,’ that came out a couple of weeks ago. And they were denouncing the Obama administration for releasing all of these people.” . . .
Recently reported information about the Obama administration’s release in 2013 of 36,007 criminal illegal aliens . . . originated with internal memos from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, or ICE, as cited in a report by the Center for Immigration Studies.
However, in “Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office,” New York Times bestselling authors Klein and Elliott cite further ICE documentation showing the release of thousands more criminal illegals from 2009 to 2011.
“Impeachable Offenses” further documents that of the more than 7,000 criminals released in those years, some went on to be charged with 19 more murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes after their release from jail by the Obama administration.
The statistics pose a grim outlook for the 36,007 additional criminal illegal aliens reportedly released last year by ICE.

Read the whole thing. Gonzalez is using a favorite liberal tactic: Trying to divert attention from a story by referring to the allegedly malicious motives of the people reporting or promoting the story. To say that Klein and Elliott are conservatives, or to say that attention to the criminal alien scandal helps Klein and Elliott sell books — well, these things may be entirely true, without changing one iota the basic facts of the story, or the policy issues involved, or the political impact of the story.

It’s like when the Left screams “Koch money!” as if the funding of any particular project by the Koch brothers immediately discredits that project. This is just a distraction tactic, and when Democrats use these tactics, they should be called out for it.

Also, you should probably buy Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott. If the Left hates it this much, it’s got to be pretty awesome.

    These problems are not going away until Americans in vast numbers demand that the borders be “Closed For Repairs”. It doesn’t have to be permanent, or even long term, but it should be long enough in order to put it place some kind of comprehensive monitoring technology.

    And by all means, the feds should stop interfering with the states when they set about solving this problem, and should actually assist them to any reasonable extent in securing their borders.

    It’s also time to put pressure on Mexico, whose consulates are primarily responsible for the problem outlined in this post. It’s time these crooked bastards were brought to heel, which will never happen as long as the cowardly bureaucrats from both parties continue to bend over backwards to patronize them.

    Barry should be held liable, personally and criminally, for any and all crimes committed by the illegal aliens he has released. The buck stops with him, right?

    Most of the felons were released because their home countries refused to take them back.

    When a country does that, the law gives the Secretary of State the power to suspend the issuance of visas for citizens of that country. Neither Clinton nor Kerry have ever invoked that clause, or even threatened to do so.

    Also, if you’ve heard that Obama has “set records for deportations,” don’t scratch your head. He only changed the way they are counted. In the past, people turned away at the border were not considered “deported” since they never got in, and no legal proceeding was conducted to send them back. Now they are. Presto! Look at what a great job Obama is doing! Oy vey . . .

    But get used to it. They are changing the way GDP is figured, too, so that soon we won’t be able to compare our economic performance to the past OR to any other nations, because we are the only one changing the formula.

    Um, if you can show me a single instance where Obama has taken unqualified responsibility for anything in his entire life. Even on the rare occasions when he does state he is responsible, that phrase is immediately followed by blaming others and excuses.

    Will Obama go “nuclear” on Amnesty… He could do it and once it happens how do you stop it?

    Great idea, but he is immune from any liability.
