BREAKING: Obama’s DOJ to Make Terrifying Move on Oct. 30, 2015… We Are in DANGER
There will be roughly 6,000 more criminals out on the streets after Oct. 30, as the Obama administration plans to release drug offenders as part of a sentencing program initiated by the president.
According to Fox News, a Department of Justice official confirmed that the prisoners would be released as part of new sentencing guidelines established last year for drug crimes. The criminals involved were sentenced under older guidelines.
And that’s not all. The U.S. Sentencing Commission decided in July of last year that almost 50,000 criminals would be eligible for shorter sentences.
The release of 6,000 prisoners will be the largest one-time release of prisoners in U.S. history, according to The Washington Post. The inmates, who are serving their sentences in federal prison, will be released between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2.
As always, Obama administration officials insist you have nothing to worry about.
“Even with the Sentencing Commission’s reductions, drug offenders will have served substantial prison sentences,” Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the Post. “Moreover, these reductions are not automatic. Under the commission’s directive, federal judges are required to carefully consider public safety in deciding whether to reduce an inmate’s sentence.”
However, The Post reported that the judges involved in deciding who would be released were handling up to 70 cases a week, which sounds less like the careful consideration of public safety and a bit more like rubber stamping.
It was reported that a majority of the prisoners will be released to halfway houses or drug rehabilitation centers. (If you have to put them into rehab, are you sure these are the people you should be releasing?)
However, about a third of them will be released to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for immigration violations. Given Obama’s prosecutorial discretion in that arena, too, don’t expect them to be deported anytime soon.
Just another day in Obama’s America, where the administration is always placing its agenda above your safety.
