Catch and release
In recent times, it is used to describe Obama administration policy towards illegal immigrants. That is for law enforcement to apprehend border crossers and then releasing them. Most people believe the U.S. government would be releasing those caught... at the other side of the border. In fact, the National Border Protection Council shows 85% remain in the country.
Catch and Release is the name of a 2006 movie starring Jennifer Garner.
