5 CHARGED IN BRIAN TERRY’S DEATH, $1M REWARD OFFERED FOR LEADS
After more than a year of not doing so, the Justice Department unsealed an indictment on Monday charging five people in connection with Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s December 2010 death while also announcing a reward up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of the four suspects who remain at large.
Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) praised the DOJ for its announcement but questioned the timing, calling it “another example of using politics over good policy.”
Regardless of the DOJs move, the call on Holder to turn over Fast and Furious documents continues as the questions surrounding how and who allowed the botched gun-running operation that put weapons into the hands of Terry’s murderers remain unanswered.
OBAMA ADMIN RELEASES LARGE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL ALIEN SEX OFFENDERS
Judicial Watch on Saturday released newly obtained information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contradicting DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s claims that removing criminal aliens was a “top priority”. Why? Because it contains a laundry list of violent crimes Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials were told to simply overlook when it came time to decide where or not to deport any illegal immigrant.
The series of internal ICE memos reveal officials were told they could dismiss deportation cases against illegal immigrants convicted of sexual assault, solicitation of murder, aggravated assault, assaulting a police officer, kidnapping and many drug charges.
The memos disclosed due to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit also reveal the Obama administration has been actively working behind the scenes to implement amnesty a la ‘prosecutorial discretion’ nearly an entire year before ICE director John Morton publicly announced Obama’s policy toward deportations.
