Obama Allies Releasing 6,000 Criminals into America’s Streets

President Barack Obama’s allies are releasing roughly 6,000 criminals back into America’s streets by Nov. 2, supposedly to ease “overcrowding” and to offset harsh sentences, according to the Washington Post.

The new releases include roughly 2,000 criminal foreign migrants, contradicting claims that illegal immigrants don’t contribute to crime. The migrants are to be repatriated to their home countries.

The Obama administration is trying to distance itself from the mass release, but Obama and other Democrats appointed most of the legal professionals now running the U.S. Sentencing Commission, which directed lower jail penalties for some crimes and backdated rules to allow the releases. The group is headed by judges and political lawyers who are allied with the Democratic Party, not by politicians who face an election in 2016.

Over the last year, violent crime has risen in many cities as murder rates have spiked 16 percent, while Obama and his allies have tried to stigmatize and regulate state and local police. The increased murder-rate has added up to 482 extra dead Americans under Obama’s policies.

That spike in crime is likely to frighten middle-class voters and make crime a hot issue in the 2016 election. According to the Post:

The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. Most of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release.

The early release follows action by the U.S. Sentencing Commission — an independent agency that sets sentencing policies for federal crimes — which reduced the potential punishment for future drug offenders last year and then made that change retroactive…

The panel estimated that its change in sentencing guidelines eventually could result in 46,000 of the nation’s approximately 100,000 drug offenders in federal prison qualifying for early release. The 6,000 figure, which has not been reported previously, is the first tranche in that process….

Critics, including some federal prosecutors, judges and police officials, have raised concerns that allowing so many inmates to be released at the same time could cause crime to increase…
