We rely on the "honor system" with criminals

Authorities free 1 million aliens amid proceedings
One million people facing immigration proceedings have been released into the general population, the government's chief of detention and removal told the Senate yesterday , prompting some Republicans to say the Bush administration is "not serious" about the problem...
...He said of those people, 465,000 are fugitive aliens who have been ordered deported. About 80,000 of those are criminal aliens who have committed an offense in addition to immigration violations, but he couldn't provide an exact number....
..."The aliens that are being released include murderers, rapists and child molesters," Mr. Cohn said.

"Not serious" about the problem? That's an understatement. Your family and my family are put at risk by having these dangerous criminals loose in the community. Our government is not taking it's number one job of public safety very seriously at all.
