Usually, the term “catch and release” is used by fishermen who release a fish they have just caught, and throw it back into the lake to continue to thrive. The idea is for the fish to grow larger and possibly be caught again at the fisherman’s discretion.
Nowadays though,”catch and release” refers to former President Obama’s lawless policy of releasing illegal immigrants back into the population to continue doing their crimes and wreaking havoc upon our law enforcement agencies, who were mandated by Obama to not enforce immigration laws.
Obama’s disastrous policy has left America with at least a million “hardened criminal” illegals which president Trump is now forced to deal with.

The mainstream media and various immigrant advocacy groups have been utterly melting down in response to actions taken by President Donald Trump’s administration in regard to enforcing the laws against illegal immigration, something he vowed repeatedly on the campaign trail that he would do.
USA Today reported on sweeping memos released this week by Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly that spelled out how the laws would be enforced and which segments of the illegal immigrant population would be prioritized for deportations.
While hypothetically any individual in the country illegally can be deported at any time for any reason, the administration has made it abundantly clear that its focus is on those who have been convicted of crimes and already been ordered deported, yet still remain in the country.
“Everybody who is here illegally is subject to removal at any time. That is consistent with every country, not just ours,” White House pres secretary Sean Spicer said at Tuesday’s daily news briefing. “But the priority that the president has laid forward (are) the people who have committed a crime or pose a threat to our public.”
“We’re talking close to a million people who have already been adjudicated, and had their — their status processed through a formal due process system,” he said. “And so what we need to do now is to make sure that we focus the resources and the efforts on those people going first and foremost.”
Former President Obama kept the full measure of the illegal immigrant problem confidential and according to the officials at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there could be an additional 2 to 3 million more illegals with criminal records hiding below the deportation radar.
Obama’s “sanctuary cities” and “catch and release” policies have left America under a huge threat from criminal illegals. This is the very reason why America needs a border wall and a president committed to enforcing vital immigration laws.
Obama wasn’t that guy but we hope Donald Trump is and will make it happen soon!
