Americans for Legal Immigration PAC's spokesman is accusing the Obama administration of engaging in a form of terroristic threats by unlawfully releasing 10,000 illegal immigrants from detention centers, threatening to facilitate a new mass influx of illegal aliens, while at the same time demanding more money and power and amnesty for illegals.
The White House is making the spurious claim that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released the illegal immigrant prisoners without authorization from the President. This tactic is the same the White House used as a defense in the Fast and Furious gun walking Scandal.
The fact that US Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham just emerged smiling from a closed door meeting with Obama regarding immigration reform amnesty on the backdrop of these threats shows an agenda in motion. McCain and Graham are thumbing their noses at a new Reuters poll showing 70% of Republicans, and a majority of all Americans, want illegal immigrants deported instead of being allowed to stay in America.
"The Obama administration is telling Congress and the American public that if we do not give them more money, power, and amnesty for illegals that they will release more illegal immigrants upon our communities and signal more to enter the US through our undefended borders," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Since his words and deeds will clearly lead to loss of American lives, property, jobs, and security, his administration is engaging in a form of terroristic threats. If Americans and Congress back down to these kinds of threats and abuses this time, they will get worse and more damaging in the future."
Legal definition: "A person commits the offense of terroristic threats if he threatens to commit any offense involving violence to any person, property, or government agency, or group with intent to:
- cause a reaction of any type to a threat[s] by an official or volunteer agency organized to deal with emergencies;
- place any person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury;
- place the public or a substantial group of the public in fear of serious bodily injury; or
- influence the conduct or activities of a branch or agency of the federal government, the state, or a political subdivision of the state."
The Obama administration has been bombarding the press and public with claims that only illegal immigrants engaged in broader serious criminal activities would be deported over the last two years. They are now contradicting themselves by claiming that the illegals being released from deportation detention facilities do not pose a threat to the community.
In a telling development, the release of illegal immigrants was halted when Congressman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) demanded to know what crimes the released illegals had been charged with and what, if any, supervision was in place post release!
By releasing the illegal immigrants before any budget crisis actually occurs, and by releasing the illegal immigrants in tandem with a threat to gut the Border Patrol, accompanied by a verbal notification to potential illegal immigrants abroad that Obama will open the borders, Obama's actions are clearly a political agenda and not necessitated by federal finances but designed to menace and intimidate his opposition.
"The latest threat of terrorism is coming from the White House and Obama policies, not Iraq or Afghanistan," said William Gheen. "How low will Obama go if he does not get more money or agenda concessions? Will he start opening up the federal prisons next or disable our nuclear deterrent capabilities? How long will Congress and American citizens put up with these threats from the White House?"
