Leaked Documents Show Most Illegals Now Immune to Arrest

New Obama administration rules make the vast majority of illegal immigrants immune to arrest and relegate border patrol agents to the role of social workers, according to Breitbart Texas.

A border agent leaked the documents to the conservative web site, explaining that the Department of Homeland Security has decided that the majority of immigrants crossing U.S. borders illegally cannot be detained or deported without approval from top officials in Washington.

The documents do not specifically order agents to let illegal immigrants pass freely into the United States, the source said. But the rules “clearly” say “don’t waste your time because the alien will not be put into detention, sent back or deported,” he said.

“There is literally no reason to arrest an illegal alien because they are specifically telling Border Patrol there will be no consequence for the illegal alien. It is a waste of time and resources to arrest someone who is off limits for detainment or deportation and the documents make that fact clear,” the source added.

“Border Patrol agents are now being trained to be social workers, not law enforcement.”

The training documents create three categories of illegal immigrants. “Priority one” includes those who “pose a threat to national security, border security or public safety.” “Priority two” would comprise those guilty of misdemeanors or “new immigration” violations. “Priority three” are simply described as “other immigration violators.”

The new rules follow a Nov. 20 directive from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who ordered agents to arrest only immigrants they see crossing the border or those who are wanted criminals or convicted felons.

“This is not how it was before,” the source told Breitbart. “Border Patrol used to arrest, process, and turn the illegal alien over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the courts. Under this new program, the majority of illegal aliens will be released directly from the Border Patrol with no appointments or expectation that they ever have to show up for a hearing.”
