The discredited policy of "catch and release," the policy by which Department of Homeland Security agencies, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU), U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations (CBP OFO), apprehends illegal aliens, then releases them with no charges, is back with a vengeance. Previously "catch and release" actually included filing charges with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) with the aliens left to ignore their hearing date and disappear into the interior of the United States and was generally limited to BP arrests, but in a more limited manner, at least in the numbers of those caught and released, to ICE SVU's predecessor, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service's (INS) Office of Investigations, as well as the legacy INS' Office of Inspections, predecessor to CBP OFO. For the legacy Office of Inspections "catch and release" was generally limited to asylum applicants who arrive without documents at airports. Over a period of time, large numbers of those with fraudulent asylum applications entered this way because the legacy INS did not take custody of arriving aliens seriously and was underfunded. Usually the policy was limited to what the legacy agencies considered low threat aliens. After the 1993 WTC bombing that was led by a asylum applicant who won the "catch and release" lottery, Ramzi Yousef, things were tightened up. But not for long.
However, besides the return of "catch and release" for Mexican and other low threat illegals as part of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, "catch and release" has returned for the new Ramzi Yousefs of the world.

Two foreign nationals — who are believed to be associates of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers — were arrested Saturday on immigration violations, authorities said.
The men, identified by neighbors as 19-year-olds from Kazakhstan, drove around in a black BMW with the mock license plate, “TERRORISTA #1.”
The pair was hauled out of their New Bedford apartment in handcuffs about 3:50 p.m. The raid was carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, a spokesman told the Daily News.
“These individuals were arrested on administrative immigration violations,” spokesman Ross Feinstein said in a terse statement...
The three were taken into custody Friday evening — but let go early Saturday.
There we have it, ICE SVU has applied "catch and release" to terrorism suspects.
And there is a twist, the FBI has since re-arrested the recipients of the Obama Regime "Catch and Release" Administrative Amnesty on the same day they were released by ICE SVU.

Two men are in federal custody as the FBI investigates a possible terror cell that may be linked to suspected Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The men, known only as Diaz and Azmat, were arrested Saturday, April 20, in New Bedford, Mass. While the suspects are being held on immigration violations, their arrest was made after police received new information regarding a possible 12-member terror cell operating in the area.
Investigators say the group’s main focus may have been training the brothers to build compact explosives like the bombs used in the marathon attack and those thrown at police officers Thursday night during a car chase.
Just as "catch and release" allow Ramzi Yousef to kill Americans, it is only a matter of time until "catch and release" kills more Americans.
