U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has recently announced that they are consolidating the custody of illegal aliens in Alabama with a private prison in Georgia.
Of course Alabama politicians are upset that they are not getting some of the sucre.
Unfortunately they are only concerned about the money and not the fact that money spent on the long term detention of illegal aliens is a waste. This just another aspect of the lawlessness of the Obama Regime and its failure to fully implement expedited removal. The continuing failure starting with the Clintong Regime and through the Bush and Obama Regimes is both lawless and a policy failure. Holding aliens for removal proceedings or awaiting travel documents wastes millions of dollars each year. Expedited removal and other provisions of immigration law provide for the immediate removal of many classes of illegal aliens and also provide that the U.S. can issue letter of travel for said illegal aliens, ending the need to wait sometimes years for travel documents from their countries of citizenship. This is just another aspect of the Obama Regime amnesty plan, keep as many aliens in the U.S. as possible for the upcoming amnesty and waste as many dollars as possible in areas not related to actually finding and removing illegal aliens. Why pay to find an illegal when the Regime can appear to be enforcing the law by spending millions, but fooling the public by wasting those millions on the useless long-term detention of illegal aliens who should have been deported long ago?
