Liberals are not about to let the coronavirus crisis go to waste, and ANTIFA-style activists are behaving accordingly. They protested on Friday in New York City to demand that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) disband and let illegals in their custody onto the streets.
Activists made sure to abide by social distancing customs as they joined together for their demonstration in favor of border anarchy.
“People are dying in these cages right now,”activist Benjamin Shepard told Zenger News in a surgical mask while protesting in Times Square.
“This is a country of immigrants,” said a Brooklyn resident named Shepard to reporters. “If you’re locked up in a prison right now, it’s a death sentence.”
He added: “Abolish ICE. Free them all.”
Video of the rally as it was taking place can be seen here:
The demonstration was put together by “a coalition of groups who are opposing the detention camps that ICE runs and also incarceration generally in New York state,” according to a social justice activist who goes by the alias “Savitri D.” She is calling for Governor Andrew Cuomo to empty the prisons as well “because COVID is rampant in all the detention facilities.”
The protest came to a close outside of an ICE office on Manhattan’s south side where demonstrators claimed that ICE agents and other federal immigration enforcement officials “are not essential workers.”
There has been a national push to use the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to flood the streets with potentially dangerous illegals by the far-left:
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.
The radical left will not hesitate to put American lives in jeopardy if it means advancing their broader goals of mass immigration and general lawlessness.
Customs and Border Patrol Arrest 36 Camouflaged Illegal Aliens at Open Borders Organization’s Smuggling Camp
Illegal immigration is back on.
Customs and Border Patrol arrested more than three dozen illegal immigrants at a smuggling camp operated by a left-wing open borders organization in Arizona on Friday night, possibly signaling that illegal immigration is back on after the coronavirus halted human smuggling and trafficking operations at the U.S-Mexico border.
CBP Tucson Sector Chief Roy Villareal recounted the operation, which was executed on a camp operated by the ‘No More Deaths’ open borders group, which coordinates and assists in dangerous border crossings on the part of illegal aliens in southern Arizona. CBP executed a federal search warrant on the camp in Aricava, Arizona, after investigating the criminal activity associated with the facility.

“On July 31, 2020, Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Border Patrol Sector, with support from CBP Air and Marine Operation’s Tucson Air Branch executed a federal search warrant on the No More Deaths camp near Arivaca, Arizona. Upon entry, over three dozen Illegal border crossers were found within the camp,” revealed CBP in a statement to News 4 Tucson.
The group that was arrested may have been one of the biggest detained by CBP since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, which largely halted illegal immigration. The capture of larger groups of illegal immigrants in recent days and weeks may signal that large-scale human smuggling operations may be back on after a hiatus.
Chief Villareal shared CBP imagery revealing that the group formation of illegal aliens traveled directly to the No More Deaths camp in Aricava, suggesting a degree of coordination between the open borders group and the border crossers.

Federal authorities have pointed to the left-wing camp as a tool utilized by drug smugglers and criminals seeking to infiltrate the United States for years, having dismantled the camp through court order before.
Law enforcement operations occur in the area around the No More Deaths camp regularly as this is a key smuggling route for both undocumented migrants and drug traffickers.

No More Deaths continues to incentivize highly dangerous border crossings in the Sonoran Desert in the thick of the Arizona summer, endangering the lives of law enforcement, the public, and unauthorized migrants who make the treacherous journey with the promise of assistance.
