Illegal Alien Who Killed Nun Was on Obama’s Supervised Release

FEBRUARY 28, 2013

The deadly results of President Obama’s “supervised release” program for illegal immigrants were exposed long ago by a Judicial Watch investigation of a Bolivian national (Carlos Martinelly-Montano) who killed a Virginia nun in a drunk-driving accident.

A Homeland Security report obtained in the course of JW’s probe details policies and actions of the Obama administration and local governments that allowed Montano, an illegal alien who committed a series of crimes, to remain on the streets despite being subject to deportation. Rather than detaining Montano, federal authorities determined that he was a candidate for the Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program, which supposedly monitored his whereabouts.

On August 1, 2010, while under the influence of alcohol, Montano crashed his car into another vehicle, killing one nun and critically injuring two others. Last year he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but the fact remains that the tragedy never should have occurred. Federal immigration authorities never should have freed Montano under Obama’s outrageous “supervised release” program.  

Incredibly, the administration continues full throttle with the controversial program. Earlier this week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released “waves” of illegal immigrants detained in facilities across the nation. The administration claims that impending budget cuts forced the move and in a statement to the media ICE said the detained aliens have been placed on “an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release.”

A mainstream newspaper well known for its pro Obama reporting called the move a “highly unusual effort to save money.” Then, as if to defend the administration, the story goes on to say that the government hasn’t dropped the deportation cases against the immigrants, but rather the detainees have been freed on supervised release while their cases continue in court.

A congressman from Virginia, the state where the drunk illegal alien killed the nun, called Obama’s early release program “abhorrent.” The lawmaker, Bob Goodlatte, also chairs the House Judiciary Committee and says the administration is “needlessly endangering American lives by releasing criminals into communities.

    Barack Obama is not the president of the United States. The Bible says the duty of government is to punish evildoers and praise those who do good. The Bible also says that those who do not work should not eat. Taxing working people to feed people who don’t work is a crime against God. When government stops doing what God authorized them to do, they have abrogated their authority. No wonder Obama sets criminals free; he’s helping his fellow lawbreakers. Don’t forget that every breath an illegal alien takes is another crime. It is senseless that people and families who have worked for generations in America have to pay for government services for people who have not contributed to the system, but have broken the law by crossing the border and living in sin. We could expand immigration if we got rid of entitlements. As long as there are entitlements, there must be strong immigration control. There’s only one plan for illegals: go home and apply legally. A baseball batter can’t go from the warm up circle straight to third base, and then score on someone else’s hit. He has to go to the batter’s box and play by the rules of the game if he wants to score. Wake up, America. WAKE UP!

    If Obama cared about the US he wouldn’t have freed thousands of illegals who will no doubt perpetuate more violent crimes against law abiding citizens. This is a prime example why democrats are dangerous. There are thousands of bloated govt. programs that should be cut and the only ones this “president” can cut are defense and borders.

    So, this accident happens in 2010 and the same rules applied not just in this administration, but the prior administration as well and now Republicans have a fricking problem with it?

    This president has deported more people in his first administration than the previous administration did in 8 years.

    what happened to the rest of it, I get wrote out in a very big descusion and it all dissappears as you can tell that it was posted with my ending, wow.

  • Southernbuckeye

    ns to come into our country. We need to stop it now people before something else occurs. Urge the President to stop the supervised release of the illegal immigrants from taking place.

    BO, Napolitano, Morton, and others should be behind bars for endangering American citizens lives, due to their dereliction of duty!
