Obama imitates Fidel Castro emptying his jails on the US
Criminals ‘in exodus from Cuba’: US fears Castro emptying his jails – into Florida
1994-THE UNITED STATES believes Cuba has started to release prisoners from its jails and suspects that President Fidel Castro is about to send them to join the boat people leaving the island for Florida.

Brewer: Release of Hundreds of Illegals Ahead of Cuts ‘Height of Absurdity’
Arizona officials — from the statehouse to Capitol Hill — were outraged on Tuesday at the Obama administration’s release of hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails to save money as huge budget cuts loom.“I’m appalled to learn the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun to release hundreds of illegal aliens from custody, the first of potentially thousands to soon be freed under the guise of federal budget cuts,” said Arizona Gov.

“These are criminal illegals,” Babeau added. “They were headed for deportation — but now, they have received a budget pardon.”
