Cory Booker Attempts to Suspend Immigration Enforcement, Empty Detention Centers Due to Coronavirus Pandemic
Failed Democrat presidential candidate and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is leading an effort to release illegal immigrants and hamstring ICE during the coronavirus emergency.
According to a press release, Booker and Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) plan to unveil the Federal Immigrant Release for Safety and Security Together (FIRST) Act on Monday, which will remove immigrants from detention centers and stop immigration enforcement on those not deemed a public safety risk.
Essentially, Booker’s measure is a jailbreak for illegal aliens. The Democrats are not letting the coronavirus crisis go to waste. In addition to letting illegals go free, Booker wants to let other dangerous felons out of prison as well.
“We have an obligation to do everything we can to prevent the spread of this deadly disease,” Booker said about his jailbreak plan last month. “That means moving certain incarcerated people to community supervision when they don’t pose a violent threat to our communities and are facing high risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19.”
Democrats have exploited the coronavirus panic to let felons out of prison throughout the country:
California Governor Gavin Newsom is exploiting the coronavirus crisis in order to more quickly implement far-left criminal justice policies, which has allowed at least one convicted child murder to be let back on the streets.
Newsom commuted the prison sentences of 21 different convicted criminals and pardoned five others who had already served their sentences on Friday. A stunning 14 of the cases involved murder or a charge related to murder. Children were the victims in two of the chilling cases. In another case, it was a pregnant woman who was the victim. The people found responsible for these heinous crimes by the court of law are now back on the streets.
Suzanne Johnson, a 75-year-old San Diego county resident who served 22 years in prison for assaulting a child who ended up dying, had her sentence commuted. Joann Parks, a 64-year-old Los Angeles county resident who served 27 years in prison after her three children were killed in a house fire, also received amnesty from the Governor. Rodney McNeal, a 50-year-old San Bernardino county resident found guilty of stabbing his pregnant wife to death, was freed and now walks the streets as well.
Newsom made it clear that these violent criminals would have been let out of jail anyway by his regime, but the coronavirus panic gave him an excuse to speed the process up considerably. The Governor’s office claimed that Newsom “also considered the public health impact of each grant, as well as each inmate’s individual health status and the suitability of their post-release plans, including housing.”
Liberals are using coronavirus to implement their ongoing transformation of America from a Constitutional Republic into a theft-based socialist despotism, and Booker is at the helm of that vanguard.
