Dave Mack fell in love with radio at an early age, and after 30 years the affair continues. His radio career has taken him to some great cities but his home has been in Alabama since 1994. Dave was introduced to Alabama in a unique way while attending church at Goshen United Methodist Church on Palm Sunday 1994 when a tornado hit the church killing more than 20 and injuring many more, including Dave. Having an up close and personal experience with Severe weather, Dave has provided long form severe weather coverage on several stations and is involved with public speaking about severe weather preparedness. Dave Mack has lived a unique life that includes stand up comedy as well as hosting his own regional television show, and most recently added "Feature Film Actor" to his resume having co-starred in the feature film "Prodigal". Dave is scheduled to star in two additional feature films in 2012. Dave and his wife LaDonna (a lifelong Alabama resident) have 4 children and multiple pets including Dave's special friend....his chihuahua "Tanner".
The Obama administration’s top deportation official acknowledged on Tuesday that he could have asked Congress for flexibility to avoid having to release more than 2,000 immigrants back onto the streets ahead of the budget sequesters, but he decided the releases were a better option.
John Morton, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also said that some of those he has had to release have multiple drunk-driving offenses on their record, since those are not considered level one cases. He did not provide exact numbers.
Mr. Morton’s decision to release 2,228 immigrants over a three-week period in February has become a major flashpoint in the debate over sequestration — the automatic budget cuts that took effect March 1.
He said his choice was between releasing immigrants or furloughing agents and cutting down on drug and child pornography investigations, and he said he wasn’t going to do that.
“I did not want to rob Peter to pay Paul,” Mr. Morton said.
Republicans, though, said that was setting up a false choice.
