WASHINGTON -- The Associated Press has learned that the Homeland
Security Department released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants
facing deportation from immigration jails in recent weeks because of
looming budget cuts. It also planned to release 3,000 more during March.

The newly disclosed figures, cited in internal government budget
documents reviewed by the AP, are significantly higher than what the
Obama administration acknowledged this week as a "few hundred"
illegal immigrants who were released under the budget-savings process.

The budget documents show that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement
released roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants from its jails around the
U.S. each week since at least Feb. 15. The agency's field offices
have reported more than 2,000 released before intense criticism this
week led to a temporary shutdown of the plan.

An 18-year-old Mexican woman was arrested Wednesday after border
agents in Nogales say she tried to walk into Arizona with heroin duct-
taped to her midriff.

It is the third time in about a week that border agents in Nogales
have found women trying to smuggle heroin across the border in
Nogales in that fashion.

A 37-year-old woman from California was arrested earlier this week
with eight pounds of heroin wrapped around her midriff. And on Feb.
21, an 18-year-old Nogales, Sonora woman was arrested with about a
pound of heroin duct-taped under her bra, according to news releases
from U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement.

In the most recent incident, agents say the 18-year-old was searched
after a drug dog alerted to the teen as she waited to walk into Arizona.

The search found 3.4 pounds of heroin taped under her bra. The
estimated street value of the heroin is $47,000, a news release said.

The woman was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
