Obama’s ICE Released Back Onto Our Streets 600 Convicted Illegal Alien Sex Offenders Some Because Of Zadvydas v. Davis Decision
The above is my version of title by Bob Price at Breitbart.
Congress could override Zadvydas.
In an effort to roll back Zadvydas, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) has introduced the “Keep Our Communities Safe Act” (H.R. 1932), legislation aimed at allowing indefinite detention of unremovable admitted immigrants and asylum applicants (immigrants awaiting approval of asylum applications). Three experts lent support to the legislation during a hearing on the Act: Gary Mead, Executive Associate Director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations; Thomas H. Dupree, Jr., partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP (and former Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General under President Bush); and Ft. Myers Chief of Police Douglas Baker, a colleague of Officer Widman who was murdered by an alien released as a result of Zadvydas.
Clearly, that effort failed. It never reached the House floor and even if it had, Obama would have vetoed it. Today, 2017, HR 1932 is a totally different bill and has nothing to do with Zadvydas.
