The Virginia man suspected in a drunken-driving crash that killed a Catholic nun in Prince William County this weekend is an illegal immigrant and repeat offender who was awaiting deportation and whom federal immigration authorities had released pending further proceedings, police said Monday.

Nun killed by someone that wasn't an illegal immigrant
But yeah ICE seems to be problematic. Apparently from their union's latest posting, ICE agent's hands are tied and they let people go so that they can deport them.
Hopefully that policy changes soon.

I wonder if you would have heard about this story if some 24 year old with one dui under his belt had done this.
I don't know why it matters whether he was legal or not.
I'm for getting illegals out.
But this is just people getting angry over illogical routes of logic.
Quit playing politics.
Critics have long demanded that ICE increase its bed capacity. In the years after the Sept. 11 attacks, some proposals called for a capacity increase to 60,000 beds to try to keep illegal immigrants off the streets while awaiting deportation. The president and Congress, however, never funded that request, and so far in fiscal 2010 ICE is holding 30,349 people on an average day.
