Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday that she is pursuing plans to remove some captured illegal aliens from “prison-like or jail-like circumstances” and put them in converted hotels and nursing homes.
“To better manage detention operations, ICE will develop a risk assessment and custody classification, which will enable detainees to be placed in an appropriate facility,” DHS said in a statement. “ICE will pursue detention strategies based on assessed risk and reduce costs by exploring the use of converted hotels, nursing homes and other residential facilities.”
Um, if we are going to put illegal aliens on a bus to transfer them – why don’t we just transfer them back home? In addition, if we have converted hotels, nursing homes or other residential facilities available – why don’t we utilize this space to house our American homeless population?
Ms. Napolitano, do you realize that illegally entering the US is a crime? How on earth is this going to deter this illegal activity? Come to America illegally and we’ll put you up in a hotel? Your responsibility is to ensure the security of our borders, not inject your ideology. If you disagree with the law – change it. Oooh, that’s right, a significant majority of the American people do not agree with your ideology.
Napolitano noted that DHS will develop detention strategies based on assessed risk that will reduce costs and put illegal aliens “near immigration service providers.” These strategies will include pursuing the use of non-prison-like housing.
Aw………it becomes a little clearer. They are going to make it more convenient for the LaRaza/LaCasa groups to assist these persons with their immigration.
Janice Kephart, national security policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, believes that “alternatives to detention” is just another name for the failed “catch and release” model.
“‘Alternatives to Detention’ is just another way to say ‘Catch and Release,’ which was the thorn in the side of the prior administration until they stopped it and put rule of law in place,” said Kephart.
“Although managing detention facilities and their populations well is a good goal, simply doing it by reducing the illegal population and dispersing them back into American communities does not help enforce immigration law or make our communities more secure,” Kephart said.
Kephart pointed out that Mir Aimal Kansi, who murdered two CIA employees outside the agency’s Langley, Va., headquarters; Ramzi Yousef, who masterminded the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center; and Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, who inspired the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, had all been asylum applicants who were left free in the United States.
Those pesky terrorists are always getting the way of Napolitano’s plans…………………..I wonder how the people in the communities will feel about these ‘Immigration Hiltons’ being in their neighborhoods?
