The huge surge of illegal aliens that crossed the southern U.S. border last spring and early summer and then went into temporary decline is showing signs of being on the rise once more.
The Obama administration, under the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Intensive Supervision Appearance Program, (ISAP) has released aliens — some of whom are at risk of committing criminal acts — from detention into U.S. communities.
On June 3, The House of Representatives passed by a 222-204 vote an appropriations bill (H.R. 2578) that denies funding for the Obama administration to file appeals in the case wherein a federal judge enjoined the administration from implementing its executive actions granting amnesty to four million illegal aliens.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans decided on May 25 to let stand a February 16 injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court in Brownsville, Texas, that blocked President Obama’s executive action to grant amnesty to four million illegal aliens.
On May 12, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to abolish a program known as 287(g) — which allows federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents inside county jails and also permits sheriff's deputies to act as immigration agents in the jails.
