State and federal authorities have apparently come up with a novel cost-saving measure. They will simply not enforce the law when an illegal alien is charged with a crime. Citizens get the full force of the law directed towards them, but illegal aliens are, well, something special.
In advance of any budget cuts that sequestration may or may not require, the Department of Homeland Security is releasing hundreds of illegal aliens from detention instead of deporting them. In the Commonwealth, prosecutors are waiving any requirement for illegal aliens to serve time in jail for the crimes they commit in the hopes that they can be turned over to the Department of Homeland Security, which just might deport them. Or, as we are now seeing, release them back into our communities.
Legislators still wanted prosecutors to try to save the state money, saying that prosecutors’ compensation would not be cut as significantly if they could find dollars. In response, many individual commonwealth’s attorneys told General District courts that they would automatically waive jail time on their own for certain crimes, obviating the need to appoint counsel in many cases, Doucette said.
He and others, including Ebert, have reserved the right to pursue jail time in certain cases even as they waive it most of the time.
Judges in Virginia are even appointing taxpayer-funded public defenders for illegal aliens even when they face charges that do not involve jail time, which is something they will not do for citizens or legal immigrants, just because there may be a federal interest in those that can’t seem to stop breaking our laws. Now that this administration has an excuse to avoid enforcing the law once again, they’re just going to release illegal aliens back onto our streets in order to address potential budget cuts that haven’t been made yet.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who heads the House Judiciary Committee isn’t buying any of this.
“By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the administration is needlessly endangering American lives,” Mr. Goodlatte said. “It also undermines our efforts to come together with the Administration and reform our nation’s immigration laws. Unfortunately, this Administration has a poor record of enforcing our immigration laws and has routinely sought to undermine them.”
If you happen to be a citizen or legal immigrant, prosecutors will not be waiving jail time for you if you are convicted of a crime. Neither will state or federal authorities be releasing you from prison before your sentence is completed as a cost-saving measure. But if you’re an illegal alien, well, that’s a whole different story. You get special treatment. Meanwhile, the federal government and prosecutors in the Commonwealth inadvertently conspire to endanger American lives.
The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution has effectively been repealed.
