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.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
