I believe the technical term for that is SNAGGED!  The House Judiciary Committee  got its hands on a document dated 2/15/13 revealing that ICE and Big Momma Napolitano planned to release a total of  6,000 criminal illegal aliens on to the streets (if that is not an excuse to buy a gun…nothing is)

According to the document the cause of the release was sequestration The document shows that ICE had
roughly 31,000 illegal immigrants and criminal aliens in detention –
already below the 34,000 mandated by Congress – and planned to reduce
that number to less than 26,000 by March 31, 2013.



According to Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte:“An internal document
obtained by the House Judiciary Committee shows that Administration
officials at ICE prepared cold calculations to release thousands of
criminal aliens onto the streets and did not demonstrate any
consideration of the impact this decision would have on the safety of
Americans.  The decision to release detained aliens undermines the
Department of Homeland Security’s mission to keep our homeland secure
and instead makes our communities less safe and more vulnerable to
crime.


“Clearly, there are better ways to save money
than to release criminals onto the streets.  The House Judiciary
Committee has found several ways the Department could save money in
light of sequestration, such as reducing staff bonuses and performance
awards and using unspent funds from inefficient state and local grant
programs.  But regardless of sequestration, DHS actually has plenty of
funding to pay for the detention of criminal aliens.  Unfortunately, it
seems Administration officials are more interested in using
sequestration to promote their political agenda than as an opportunity
to get our nation’s fiscal house in order.  The Judiciary Committee
plans to hold a hearing on this issue soon to get down to the bottom of
this problematic situation.”

A review of
DHS’s budget demonstrates that the Department actually has plenty of
funding to pay for the detention of criminal aliens for three reasons. 
First, the Department has carried or will carry forward billions of
dollars in fiscal years 2012 and 2013.  Last year, the Department
announced an unobligated balance of over $8 billion.  The Office of
Management and Budget projected that at the end of fiscal year 2013, the
Department would have more than $9 billion in unobligated funds. 
Second, DHS has at least $70 million in unobligated user fee balances
they could reprogram if they were to fall short. And third, the Office
of Management and Budget has not even fully apportioned all of ICE’s
funding for this year yet—$22 million is still to come.

In other words, this is being done to punish the American people
