Maryland Sheriff: Obama Admin. Releasing Criminal Illegals

By    |   Thursday, 09 Oct 2014 11:32 AM

The Obama administration is letting convicted non-violent illegal immigrant criminals back out onto the street instead of working to have them deported, says Sheriff Chuck Jenkins of Frederick County, Maryland.

"Here in Frederick County it's widely known in the region that we work with Homeland Security through a . . . immigration enforcement program as a partnership," Jenkins told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Thursday.

"What we have found throughout recent years is that the current administration is now watering down the program, and criminals who would formerly be detained and turned over to ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] after they've served their local sentence, are being let back out in the streets," he explained.

According to the Maryland sheriff, these are illegal immigrants that were arrested for non-violent crimes such as "drug charges" and "simple assaults," that previously would have resulted in the person being deported.

"The problem is a national problem," he said, but he specifically faults the Obama administration for the lack of action.

"We're working well with ICE and with Homeland Security, but it's the Obama administration that doesn't want to enforce the law," Jenkins added.
