Re the March 25 story Released detainees include criminals: Everyone needs to calm down and relax about the recent release of immigrant detainees. One of them is the greatest guy in the world and lives in our house. He was going to be released anyway.
Almost all who are being released were getting out soon anyway. Most are decent people who are going through the immigration process, and the worst of their criminal history is driving without a license.
If taxpayers knew the suffering that many families go through while immigration authorities hold their relatives, they would overwhelmingly want most of these people released well before they are scheduled to get out. Remember, they are people. They have families and friends who suffer by their not being home.
Relax, the streets are not being overtaken by criminals.
