Catch and Release

As Michelle Malkin expected, many of the illegals arrested in Wednesday’s much-ballyhooed raids are being released. More examples:

Charlotte: “Officials said the 44 arrested at the company’s west Charlotte site are immigrants from Mexico and Guatemala. Most were released and told to appear before immigration authorities in Atlanta.”

Houston: “Fifty-three were released because only those who are fugitive aliens, wanted by another law enforcement agency or considered threats to national security must be held in custody, Hatfield said. The 53 must stay in touch with ICE every two weeks while they try to obtain legal immigration status or face deportation hearings.”

Gettysburg (yes, that Gettysburg): “Federal authorities have refused to identify the 36 Mexican men arrested Wednesday morning during a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in Biglerville. Thirty-four of the alleged illegal immigrants were released from York County Prison on their own recognizance.”

Mark Krikorian — Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995.

ABC News Makes a Serious Mistake
