ACLU Files Lawsuit Using Coronavirus as an Excuse for ICE to Release Scores of Illegal Migrants

Coronavirus is being used an excuse to facilitate social disorder.

The Cuyahoga County Court in Ohio is in the process of releasing hundreds of prisoners from incarceration amidst fears regarding the spread of coronavirus, WJW Cleveland has reported. This announcement has emboldened leftists to call for similar jailbreaks within jurisdictions across the country.

“You gotta remember, the goal of this is to protect the community and the safety of the inmates. If someone’s a serious violent person, well, we’re using our discretion to make sure the community’s safe also,” Administrative Judge Brendan Sheehan said last week, adding that “hundreds” of prisoners will be let loose.

The court made the decision official during a special session on Saturday. Some individuals were allowed to plead out for their crimes, others were released on house arrest, and some of the worst offenders were led off to prison.

The far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is urging for similar policies to take room throughout the country, using coronavirus as an excuse to push for lax criminal justice policies:

The Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) Campaign has called for the state of New York to release prisoners onto the streets as well because of supposed coronavirus concerns:

The ACLU is even calling for ICE to empty their detention centers of illegal migrants, using the coronavirus as an excuse to implement leftist public policy.

“Immigrant detention centers are institutions that uniquely heighten the danger of disease transmission,” Eunice Cho, senior staff attorney at the ACLU’s National Prison Project, said in a statement.

“In normal circumstances, ICE has proven time and again that it is unable to protect the health and safety of detained people. These are not normal circumstances, and the heightened risk of serious harm to people in detention from COVID-19 is clear,” she added.

The ACLU is joined by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) in filing a lawsuit against ICE based on nine migrant plantiffs who they claim have serious health conditions, but they make it clear that they hope the lawsuit has broader implications on the migrant detention system.

“If it waits to react to worst case scenarios once they take hold,” Matt Adams, legal director for the NWIRP, said regarding ICE, “it will already be too late.”

“If we can go in and get an order clarifying that the federal government indeed has the responsibility to secure the safety of those who are at high risk — and that the only meaningful way to secure their safety is to release them — then we would expect that they would comply with that, not just with these nine individuals, but all of the others who are detained there,” Adams said to CBS News.

“It’s a disaster waiting to happen,” Cho said to CBS News. “Immigration detention centers are closed environments, just like the cruise ships, just like the nursing homes that were the site of some of the deadliest exposures to COVID-19.”

Former Obama administration official and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel infamously said: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Those principles are on full display, as leftists attempt to use the coronavirus scare as a power grab to fill the streets with criminals and illegal aliens.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed

A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.

A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.

The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.

14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.

It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.

The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.

Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
