I fell asleep soundly

Tyler (KETK) — Yesterday, the president spoke to leaders in law enforcement. The president basically told the cops how to do their job.
He said there was no reason to run after illegal immigrants because-- in his words --they are woven into the fabric of our society. Their kids go to school with our kids and on and on.
No word if he ever talked about the 36,000 criminals ICE had rounded out that his justice department released. In fact, the president is being called by detractors "the releaser and chief."
The people ICE officers risked their lives to catch: killers, drug dealers, drunk drivers. I don't think they are proud taxpayers looking forward to the next PTA meeting.
The reports from CBS news states:
According to the report, the 36,007 individuals released represented nearly 88,000 convictions, including:
193 homicide convictions
426 sexual assault convictions
303 kidnapping convictions
1,075 aggravated assault convictions
1,160 stolen vehicle convictions
9,187 dangerous drug convictions
16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions
303 flight escape convictions
This is outrageous.
Then, ICE issued a statement in response to the report, saying most of the individuals described in the report were released under restrictions, such as GPS monitoring, telephone monitoring, supervision or surety bond.
Oh, I feel better already. How about you?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
