Viewpoint: Immigration Issues

The federal government, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or "ICE" has released convicted killers, who are also illegal immigrants.

And it's not just a few; it's 169 of 36,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions across the country.

Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren says he's disgusted by this.

WSB TV reported the Obama administration claims to be "bound by a 2001 court decision that ruled immigration detention cannot be punitive or indefinite.

That applies when governments refuse to take back their citizens."

We believe this is a travesty of justice, and puts law abiding citizens in jeopardy.
