300 Illegals Released From Arizona Immigration Detention Centers

Crossposted at Blogs For Borders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released 300 illegal aliens from detention centers in Arizona, according to the Arizona Daily "Red" Star, because of sequestration cuts that maybe, might happen in a couple of days.
“As fiscal uncertainty remains over the continuing resolution and possible sequestration, ICE has reviewed its detained population to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget,” said the agency’s spokeswoman Amber Cargile.
While Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was "appalled", Senator Jeff Flake said it was "a deeply misguided move by DHS."
All 5 detention centers involved are located in Pinal County, a large extended piece of land between Tucson and Phoenix.  Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeau commented that he was not officially notified and only found out by private calls from ICE agents.
Of course, liberals are happy with the development.  One of the more asinine comments was made by Caroline Isaacs, local program director for the American Friends Service Committee: 
“To me, it’s simply a more honest revelation of the fact that most of the people in detention don’t need to be there in the first place.”
Well, let's just empty the prisons then...  That would prove that all of them don't need to be there either, right, Sweety?
