VIDEO: AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu says Obama ‘knowingly lied’ about releasing criminal illegals

gngmbrsPinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Neil Cavuto on Fox News’ Your World last week that Obama originally told him the 2,228 criminal illegal immigrants his administration released had only minor criminal records. Now we’re finding out that wasn’t true at all.

The Gateway Pundit reported Babeu’s statements,

…2013, when we broke this story because they had released hundreds right in my county in Arizona and when I brought this out because of five courageous whistleblowers within ICE they said I was lying.

It went all the way up to the White House and they knowingly lied. It wasn’t me it was them. And there was 2,228 released in California, Arizona, Texas and Georgia. And the most troubling part of this story is now that this has been exposed that this administration knowingly lied releasing people like, my county, two that were charged with manslaughter, child molestation, aggravated assault against police officers, armed robbery. The worst thing is we still don’t know their names, where they were released to at this very moment.

This is extremely troubling, because those violent felons could be endangering the lives of other innocent Americans. A large percentage of felons go on to commit more violent crimes. Obama’s actions in the name of political correctness – allowing illegal immigrants to brazenly break the law without any ramifications – are now delving into dangerous territory.  Obama claims it is because the federal government doesn’t have the resources to hold and prosecute the felons – yet he has plenty of resources to prosecute conservatives like Dinesh D’Souza for a couple of minor campaign contributions. Watch the interview below.
