Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan announced his department would end longstanding ‘catch-and-release’ practices that allow illegal immigrants to exit immigration detention almost immediately after being arrested.
McAleenan was speaking at an event of the globalist Council one Foreign Relations in Washington Monday.
The Acting DHS Secretary’s pledge could potentially be a game changer in terms of effective immigration enforcement at America’s border. It would end an inexplicable practice that has served as a draw for millions of illegal immigrants in the United States.
McAleenan claims illegal immigrants will now be swiftly repatriated within 21 days if they can’t lodge a credible claim with the asylum court system. Such an initiative is likely to incentivize even greater levels of asylum fraud, which has said to reach record proportions in recent years.
The promise to end catch and release is the second major change set into motion with regards to DHS’s illegal immigration processes in recent months. The Trump administration is seeking to revise the ‘family unit’ loophole enabling anyone with a minor to easily gain legal status, a battle that is currently held up in the court system by leftist kreitarchs. It ranges from likely to possible that a move to end catch and release will be met with similar obstruction.
McAleenan’s actual track record is less than stellar and the career bureaucrat is distrusted by many genuine immigration patriots inside and out of the administration. He’s fought to undermine Presidential directives on several occasions, even bizarrely requesting permission to attend a UN-sponsored event meant to celebrate illegal immigration.
It’s very much unclear if McAleenan’s promise to end catch-and-release is nothing more than an empty claim or a real commitment to combat illegal immigration. Only the Acting Secretary’s actions will demonstrate that. But if he intends to follow through on this pledge, a major draw for illegal immigration will be no more.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
