Sen. Jeff Flake released the following statement Tuesday after the Department of Homeland Safety said it would be releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants in the face of budget cuts.

The statement has not been altered in any way.

"With more than $1 trillion in budget deficits, there are many opportunities to rein in federal spending. Releasing hundreds of detainees who have violated the law is most certainly not one of them," said Flake. "This was a deeply misguided move by DHS."
