Unlike media lapdogs, Fox News’ Dana Perino is not buying what the White House is trying to sell. In yet another “the buck stops anywhere but here” move, the White House is blaming the release of thousands of illegal immigrants on ICE.
Unreal. More from The Washington Times:
The White House said Wednesday it had nothing to do with the decision by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release immigrants awaiting deportation back into the country in order to save money ahead of the looming budget “sequesters.”
“This was a decision made by career officials at ICE without any input from the White House as a result of fiscal uncertainty over the continuing resolution as well as possible sequestration,” spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.
Sequester scare tactics! Now with more illegal immigrant releases.
Twitter users aren’t buying it either.
And Richard Grenell points out a little something.
Hey, “what difference does it make now,” right? Not sending things up the food chain is par for the finger-pointing course in this administration. Also standard operating procedure? The release of illegal immigrants.
But, hey, Obama didn’t know and it’s totally sequester’s fault.
