The Department of Homeland Security is releasing some illegal immigrants from jails ahead of the sequestration budget cuts this Friday.  The Northwest Division for ICE is not saying whether any releases have been made in Portland; and they aren't announcing the total number of releases, or how those people were selected for release.  The National Immigration Forum says it costs $164 a day to keep an illegal immigrant facing deportation jailed, while it costs up to $14 a day to supervise someone who has been released.  ICE has 34,000 immigration jail beds across the country.
