Gov't acknowledges releasing thousands of illegal immigrants
By The Associated Press

The AP reported earlier that the states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas. There are several immigrant detainee centers in Georgia, including the North Georgia Detention Center in Gainesville.
WASHINGTON (AP)-- A senior Homeland Security Department official is telling Congress more than 2,000 illegal immigrants were released from immigration jails due to budget constraints during three weeks in February.

The figure cited by the director of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, John Morton, is significantly higher than the "few hundred" immigrants the Obama administration had acknowledged were released under the budget-savings process.

The Associated Press reported weeks ago that more than 2,000 illegal immigrants had been released since Feb. 15 and the government planned to release 3,000 more during March, but Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had said the AP's report was "not really accurate." (See earlier stories."

Morton acknowledged Thursday at a House appropriations hearing that 2,228 illegal immigrants had been released over the three-week period for what he called "solely budgetary reasons."

The AP reported earlier that the states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas. There are several immigrant detainee centers in Georgia, including the North Georgia Detention Center in Gainesville.

Ga. park orders visitors to remove own trash
By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) The National Parks Service will begin asking Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area visitors to begin carrying their own trash out of the park.

Beginning in April, officials say visitors to boat ramps, picnic areas and trails will be asked to bring their own trash bags and take their garbage with them out of the park.

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area Superintendent Patty Wissinger says the move is a response to automatic federal spending cuts. Officials say trash cans will be removed from most park locations.

Wissinger says the park has hundreds of trash cans scattered across 48 miles and emptying them accounts for a large part of the park's maintenance costs. Wissinger says the cost savings will help the park get closer to meeting a federally mandated budget cut.

Isn't it great.

All those folks constantly whining that we have to cut back because they want to tax the rich;
Now are whining that we are cutting back.

When we shut down Medicare, Social Security, School Lunches, and the TVA, and close down the National Forests.- then we'll see who really is a self-sufficient American, and who just like to pretend they are.

Like the sign said "Keep your damn government hands of my Medicare !"

Gotta love Karma.

Typical Right Wing Hypocrite - slurping up every government benefit possible,
completely unable to support himself or his family without our tax dollars,
hoping this time he passes that difficult GED test,
and explaining to us normal folks how we're all the reason his life has been such a debacle.

That's why we need to cut everything. Just listening to these Right Wingers squeal when they are forced to go without government subsidies would be worth the pain.

Government Pays Farmers to Keep Peanuts in Storage

If you grow peanuts in this country, the government will pay you to keep them in storage—instead of selling them—if the price of peanuts falls below a certain target and the farmers decide to forfeit their crop.

That’s right: The taxpayers spend money to make sure they can’t pay less for peanuts.

Peanut farmers aren’t the only ones protected from market price declines. Cotton farmers can store their product at taxpayer expense, too, under certain circumstances.

But the storage program is just one example of the multi-billion dollar handout Uncle Sam offers to farmers large and small every year. And it’s got many wondering whether the federal government can afford to keep an entire industry on the federal dole any longer.

Yep, we Georgians would never take government handouts.

Don't you hate those pesky facts demolishing Right Wing Wacko Fantasyland ?
