Omnibus Spending Bill Allows More Illegal Aliens to Be Released into U.S. Through ‘Catch and Release’

Breitbart – by John Binder

The omnibus spending bill, passed by the Republican-controlled House and Senate, will allow more illegal aliens to be released into the United States after they are caught crossing the southern border through the “Catch and Release” program.

The spending bill, which Trump signed despite opposition from conservatives and his base of supporters, paves way for the Catch and Release program to not only continue, but increase in its use. 

Catch and Release is the process where illegal aliens caught by federal immigration officials are released back into the U.S. until their immigration court hearing. Part of the reason for their release into the country is because the federal government refuses to fund the space needed to detain illegal aliens until their hearing.

After being released, illegal aliens often do not show up for their court hearing and become quasi-fugitives living in the interior of the country, adding to the already booming 12 to 30 million illegal alien population.

Local media reports across the U.S. have highlighted how the Catch and Release program has continued:

Currently, according to the Washington Times’ Stephen Dinan, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been using about 40,761 beds in its detention centers on average to house illegal aliens awaiting their hearings.

Ryan’s spending bill eliminates nearly 250 of those detention center beds, thus increasing the number of illegal aliens who will be released back into the U.S. through the Catch and Release program.

The spending bill does not include any of the provisions from Trump’s list of pro-American immigration principles, where he called for the end of Catch and Release.

Trump’s populist immigration agenda, wherein he has called on the Republican-controlled Congress to reduce overall immigration levels to raise the wages of American workers, has largely fallen on deaf ears in the GOP leadership.

For the 2018 midterm elections, Republican voters have said that reducing overall illegal and legal immigration levels to the U.S. — where more than 1.5 million immigrants are admitted annually — is a bigger priority than tax reform, replacing Obamacare, and even destroying ISIS.

  1. The Ominous Spending Bill is a slap in the face for many if not most Trump supporters, including me. I certainly do hope there was some kind of positive ploy behind all this and that somehow things may be righted, but I don’t see the light.

    1. I hate to say it, James, but “Trump supporters” were dumb enough to fall for the same pack of lies that’s shoveled into their face every four years, and without them, our problems would have been solved a lot sooner.

      All Trump did was allow Americans to sit back for another four years and wait for the newest hero to save their country, and all they got for their effort of supporting him was their faces pissed on once again.

      The fact of the matter is that NO POLITICIAN IS GOING TO DO SQUAT FOR THIS COUNTRY, because they’re all assisting in it’s destruction, and the “Trump supporters” allowed another four years of wetbacks pouring over the border, more money for the Jews, and more misery for Americans.

      NOTHING is going to be “righted” until “We The People” straighten things out ourselves. There will be no assistance from anyone in Washington D.C., the courts, academia, or the media. They’re all Zionist-controlled entities working toward the destruction of this country, so please stop falling for their BS.

      I don’t care if it’s the next president, or the next King. If he’s on TV it’s because he’s lying for the Jews.

    1. Hi Katie, I really appreciate your response and directions, but I am ẃay out in the jungle and don’t have access. I bailed out of the States a long time ago.

  3. “… adding to the already booming 12 to 30 million illegal alien population.”


    “… where more than 1.5 million immigrants are admitted annually.”

    Double that is likely closer… if not more.

    This is an ARMY we’ll be fighting soon.
