I can think of plenty of other options.
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration says it had no choice but to release almost all of the 169 immigrants with homicide convictions that were let back onto the streets last year, claiming court decisions gave officials no choice in the matter — but it’s promising a new system to better screen who gets let out.
Of the 169 immigrants with homicide-related convictions released in fiscal year 2013, all but 15 were required to be let go because of specific court orders or because the immigrants had been held for too long under the rules established by a sweeping 2001 Supreme Court case, the Homeland Security Department said in an Aug. 15 letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican.
The 116 murderers were a fraction of the 36,007 criminals ICE released in 2013. The criminals had convictions ranging from homicide and manslaughter to drunken driving and sex crimes.
Apparently cops only make black people put their hands up, who knew?
So we should grant amnesty out of fear?

Democratic State Representative and candidate for U.S. representative Pat Murphy said Tuesday that if the underage migrants who have come to the U.S. from Central America aren’t given a “pathway for citizenship” they could become terrorists.
Speaking with Iowa Public Radio host Ben Kieffer, Murphy said that “we need to make sure that we take care of the children that are coming up here.”
“They’re not from Mexico, they’re coming from further south,” Murphy continued. “We need to make sure that when we’re talking about these children we need to treat them like they’re our children or our grandchildren. If they’re gonna be refugees, which several of them are going to be, we need to make sure that we have—one, we take care of them, and we create a pathway for citizenship and set up education for them so they don’t become the same problem that we’re currently having in the Middle East—that they’ll be terrorists a generation from now.”
At some point they’re going to acknowledge Obama was (gasp!) wrong about something, right? Yeah, probably not.

A senior White House official said the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has gained more power and poses a greater threat now than it did when President Obama referred to the group as a “JV” team in an interview eight months ago.
“Clearly, [ISIS], which has a long history and has an origin dating back to al Qaeda in Iraq, has gained capacity as they advanced across Iraq and gained heavy weaponry,” Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, told reporters Friday.
“They pose a greater threat today than they did six months ago. … We’re going to do what’s necessary to deal with this counter-terrorism challenge,” he added.
The Washington Post editorial board said Friday it will stop using the word “Redskins” when referring to Washington’s football team, joining a growing list of other commentators who have renounced the term because they believe it disparages Native Americans.
In a statement, the board said, “While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect.”
The editorial board is separate from the news-gathering side of the organization, which executive editor Marty Baron said will continue to use the team’s moniker.
“The Post’s newsroom and the editorial page operate independently of each other,” Baron said. “Standard operating policy in the newsroom has been to use the names that established institutions choose for themselves. That remains our policy, as we continue to vigorously cover controversy over the team’s name and avoid any advocacy role on this subject.”
Note the orange jumpsuit, James Foley was wearing the same thing when he was beheaded.
The fake blood is a nice touch.

Just say Obama doesn’t give a crap and move on.
Breaking the glass ceiling, jihadi style.
A female jihadist from London has vowed to become the first female to behead a western prisoner in Syria.
Khadijah Dare, who is originally from Lewisham in south east London, took to Twitter to celebrate the brutal murder of American journalist James Foley.
The 22-year-old mother of one, who moved to Syria in 2012 with her Swedish husband and Isil fighter, Abu Bakr, expressed her desire to carry out a similar execution.
Writing under the Twitter name Muhajirah fi Sham, which means ‘immigrant in Syria’, she posted a slang filled message that said: “Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up ha ha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!(sic)”.
They wanted martyrdom and that’s what we gave them, you can thank us later, ISIS.
