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.
Supreme Court Rules President Trump Cannot Touch DACA with John Roberts Casting the Deciding Vote
SCOTUS stands for amnesty.
The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) determined on Thursday via a 5-4 ruling that President Donald Trump cannot end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects some 800,000 illegals from being deported from the country.
Trump had sought to reverse an executive order made by former President Barack Obama which granted amnesty to the illegals, believing Obama’s order was unconstitutional. Although it is well-understood that presidents have the authority to reverse executive orders, SCOTUS arbitrarily revoked that power for Trump because he did not give them a reason they found satisfactory for doing so. Trump is now effectively banned from revoking DACA until he can give an explanation that the courts and left-wing special interests determine as acceptable.
Far-left lawyers seized on the coronavirus pandemic to make their case to keep the privileges for illegal immigrants, claiming that DACA recipients included “dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, home health aides, technicians.”
“Termination of DACA during this national health emergency would be catastrophic,” the immigration attorneys claimed in their April 2 filing.
However, hospitals were letting personnel go throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as nurses danced in TikTok videos due to lack of activity on the job. The lack of logic behind their argument did not seem to matter to SCOTUS, who bought it hook, line and sinker.
The SCOTUS ruling comes after a bipartisan push by corporate Republicans and Democrats who have backed widespread amnesty to push down the cost of labor and increase their massive profits:
Billionaire heirs Charles and David Koch are gearing up to wage a public influence campaign in favor of granting amnesty to ‘dreamers,’ illegal immigrants brought to the United States at a young age.
TIME magazine reported that the inheritors of the massive Koch family fortune plan to use their extensive political infrastructure to exert muscle with the hopes of securing a legal status for the approximately 700,000 DACA illegals. The political move would come as the latest effort in the Kochs’ long history of seeking to increase levels of immigration to the United States even higher, further than the current record-breaking annual flow.
Formerly holding a prominent role in national Republican politics, the Koch brothers fell into disrepute among conservatives and Republicans for a series of policy views at odds with the everyday citizen, including financial support for wage-sinking mass immigration. The Kochs declined to support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, although they had previously been among the most extensive and prolific political donors in the United States…
While fashioning themselves as “free market capitalists,” the family fortune that the eponymous Koch brothers use to advance their political ideals was obtained through methods foreign to their own conception of free markets, to put it mildly. The founder of the family business, Fred Koch, became a multi-millionaire after accepting a partnership with the Soviet Union under its leader Joseph Stalin to build oil refineries. Somewhat shockingly, the overseas business activities of Fred Koch also included the construction of a plant in National Socialist Germany under Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s.
The notion of reclaiming the judiciary is looking more like a pipe dream with rulings such as this and the LGBT mandate against private businesses being approved by so-called conservative justices.
