More illegal aliens caught, expecting quick release, Border Patrol union says
Illegal immigrants have started surrendering to local Border Patrol agents after crossing the Rio Grande, convinced they'll be released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which recently turned hundreds of immigrants loose to save money.
In preparation for the sequester --- federal spending cuts forced by Congress' inability to reach a budget deal --- ICE released several hundred low-risk illegal immigrants from detention centers last month and placed them on supervised released instead. The news reached illegal immigrants preparing to cross the border.
"These are people that are just voluntarily turning themselves in to our agents with the expectation they'll be released," said Border Patrol Agent Paul Perez, president of the Rio Grande Valley union of the National Border Patrol Council. "When you cross with the expectation that you'll be released, there's no need to hide, there's no need to run. You just look for a uniformed agent and turn yourself in."

The Tidal Wave Has Begun
We will continue to have large groups of illegal aliens chasing Border Patrol agents down so they can be "arrested", knowing they will be set free and given temporary permission to remain here in the United States (no jail space to keep them locked up until their cases are adjudicated).
