Border sheriffs react to DOJ plan to release up to 2,000 criminal illegal aliens
Border sheriffs are responding to a report that the U.S. Department of Justice is set to engage in the largest one-time release of federal prisoners. Six thousand inmates will receive early release, 2,000 of which are "foreign citizens" who officials claim "will be quickly deported." The release is set to occur between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2.
"Law enforcement should always be concerned when this number of criminals will be released." said Jackson County, Texas, Sheriff A.J. "Andy" Louderback, who also serves as legislative director of the Sheriffs' Association of Texas. "I am also concerned that although the federal government claims they will be deported, as many as 2,000 illegal aliens could be released into our communities."
