A shocking 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” on average are being freed and released into the public about every 10 days by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s replacement, the newly elected sheriff.
We are being told by Judicial Watch that federal law enforcement sources have reported to them that many of these releases are in fact violent offenders. This is all a part of the new Sheriff’s plan. Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy screws Americans and protects illegal aliens, including the trash thugs who have committed serious state crimes…even they, are protected from deportation.
This is a living nightmare. To go from Sheriff Arpaio to Sheriff Lucifer is almost inconceivable.
There is a long standing partnership between the country and the fed agents that the Phoenix field office of Immigration and ICE are to be notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” are released from the Maricopa Country Jail, however, even that was done away with upon Penzone taking over.
He refers to illegal aliens and criminals as “guests” …
During a recent 10-day period, more than 400 criminal illegal immigrants were released from the Maricopa County Jail, according to federal law enforcement officials directly involved in the process in Phoenix. Weekdays are the busiest, with an average of about 40 criminal illegal aliens getting released from Maricopa County Jail facilities, the sources said. On weekends the number drops to about ten each day. The illegal aliens have state criminal charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, driving under the influence and drug offenses. “There’s no telling how many criminals he’s (Sheriff Penzone) putting on the streets,” said a high-ranking federal law enforcement official stationed in Arizona. Judicial Watch’s calls to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office were not returned.
Before the new jerk of a sheriff changed the entire system, ICE was sending a wagon every 12 hours to pick up criminals illegals that were scheduled for release. Under the new policy, officials are NOT giving ICE any sort of notification at all when criminal illegals are released out into the public.
The only other way to be aware, is to literally stand outside the doors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
“We can’t stand out there and question everyone that walks out of that jail,” said a federal agent directly involved in the matter. “Even if we did, we would have to make arrests on the street, in the middle of protestors, families and picketers and that will only heighten the danger to agents.”
When Penzone announced the new policy at a press conference last week, ICE issued a statement calling it an “immediate, dangerous change.” The agency’s Phoenix director for enforcement and removal operations, Enrique Lucero, was quoted in local media saying:
“Immigration detainers have been a successful enforcement tool to prevent the release of dangerous criminals to our streets and mitigate the possibility of future crimes being committed against the residents of our communities.”
This seems to be as bad as it could get…safety apparently isn’t a priority for this the new sheriff in town.
