New DHS immigration rules: Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, gun offenders not top deportation priorities

The Department of Homeland Security has just released new “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants.” Designed to fill in the details after President Obama’s announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation’s immigration and border security officers as they administer the president’s directive.
The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.

Surely they are kidding!
As I always say Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient! And in this case, STUPID!
Sorry, but “prioritizing” should be if you don’t follow the law, you’re GONE!
In 30 minutes of less.
And, the southern border is a joke to be called a border.
Instead of looking for new ways to poke “We, The Sheeple” — and yes, that’s a euphamism — they should be asking for the resources to do the job right!
Instead of the IRS investigating and harassing Tea Party groups, they should be aimed at this current and present danger!
