Sequestration May Lead to Release of Detained Illegal Immigrants in Houston
Feb 27, 2013 By News 92 FM
Some illegal immigrants facing deportation are instead being released on their own recognizance as Immigration and Customs Enforcement braces for budgets cuts as a result of sequestration.
Local immigration authorities contacted by NEWS 92 FM said they were not authorized to speak about how many of those immigrants might be released in the Houston area. But local immigration attorney Charles Foster says the people eligible for this release are low risk individuals with no criminal history.
