Residents angry over release of illegal immigrants

Four illegal immigrants who ran from police during a traffic stop were arrested Tuesday. But they were quickly released after federal immigration agents refused to pick them up for deportation.

LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The jailhouse doors flew wide open Tuesday to four illegal aliens who ran from police during a traffic stop just one day earlier.

"It's frustrating to some degree, but there's also nothing we can really do about it," said Asst. Chief Jimmy Davis with Loudon County Sheriff's Office.

The quad were among 10 suspected illegals enroute to Knoxville from Texas when their van was stopped along I-75 in Loudon County. The ordeal caused an intense manhunt which even included a Knox County sheriff's chopper.

"We don't know what type of person you're dealing with, why they're fleeing law enforcement, is there some type of narcotics, somebody that's wanted, somebody in the middle of a crime," said Davis.

Turns out Loudon sheriff's deputies did everything right. But it's when they called federal immigration agents to pick up the illegals, and what happened next that has jaws dropping across East Tennessee.

"There's just not the manpower and resources to deport every illegal immigrant that is found in the United States. It's just not possible," said Davis.

Local residents sounded off upon hearing about the releases. "I don't think it's right. They need to send those boys right back," said Greg Keener.

But county deputies lack power to deport illegals. And since the feds refused to, deputies had to cut the group loose.

"Arrest them, hold them, and send them back," said Shirley Goth.

"I think they need to get their stuff together," said Rebecca Keener.

ICE spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez released this statement reading: "we prioritize our efforts based on those that pose the greatest threat to the community."

Re: Residents angry over release of illegal immigrants

Even if ICE couldn't get involved what they did was illegal, eluding officers. Why didn't the Sheriff's office hold them for a bond hearing?

Re: Residents angry over release of illegal immigrants

Perhaps that would work but.......exactly how would our wonderful court system do that if none of them had ANY type of identification...????

The same way they deal with a Jane Doe. THey would try them based upon the fact that what they did was illegal. Without identification bond cannot be set nor can a bondsman guarentee a bond.

This person(s) would be sitting in jail.

Once again getting three squares and a bed, paid for by taxpayers. Which is fine, leave them there until you have enough to fill a bus. Transport them to the Border and kick them out.

I agree they should not be a burden on us but for the county to just turn them loose was on the verge of moronic.

It just goes to show the extent of the problem and the complete lack of attention given to it. The county systems could not deal with the enormous volume of illegals if they did begin detaining them. And obviously the Federal Agencies are not concerned. So how does one propose to solve this dilemma? By just ignoring it? When will it become too late? Oh well, I do kinda like Mexican food!

I'd bet my truck if I had run from the cops I'd still be sitting there in jail. Why being an illegal does it give a pass to walk?

Re: Residents angry over release of illegal immigrants

Probably be the same story coming out of AZ when they catch illegals. This just goes to show the federal gov't has no plans to deport illegals even when they are caught. Really the is no point of a fence if the gov't won't deport them anyway.

Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
