Several powerful evangelical elites have signed a document calling for the release of certain populations of illegal immigrants. They insist that keeping these illegals detained is a health risk, due to a lack of ability to social distance at ICE detention centers.
Said evangelicals include influential and powerful figures like Russell Moore – head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commision (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), Scott Arbeiter – President of World Relief, Walter Kim – President of National Association of Evangelicals, as well as several others.
All of these figures are a part of the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), the organization under which the document was formed.
The document states, in part:
…we are writing out of concern for the wellbeing of both staff and detainees in immigrant detention facilities where ICE holds individuals with a pending court hearing. Our concern is rooted in our Christian belief that each human life is made in the image of God…and…we want to do everything possible to minimize the loss of life.
Individuals who are held in detention facilities…are effectively unable to practice the “social distancing”…to limit the spread the COVID-19. While it may be necessary to continue detaining individuals who have been convicted of violent crimes and who may pose a threat to public safety…the majority of individuals detained in ICE detention facilities have not been convicted of any criminal offense, and many of those with criminal convictions are for minor, non-violent offenses.
In the interest of public health…we encourage you to utilize alternatives to detention for individuals who do not pose a threat to public safety. Detainees who are elderly or who may otherwise be uniquely vulnerable to the worst effects of COVID-19 are of particular concern.
The obvious problem with releasing these illegal immigrants is that they are a “flight risk.” If let go, what incentive does someone who came here illegally, and so is fearful of being deported, have to show up to court.
These evangelicals battle that reality by stating, “Alternatives to detention (ATD) have proven highly effective in…assuring proper tracking of immigrants.”
They link to their website, where they argue that 95% of immigrants in ATD programs show up for their final court date.
The problem is that those already in ATD programs are presumably allowed to be in those programs becuase they aren’t a flight risk. Meaning, illegals still in detention are very likely significantly more of a flight risk than those who have already been put in ATD programs.
Additionally, these illegal immigrants traveled into the country illegally. We are currently restricting travel within the country, supposedly for the purposes of keeping everyone safe.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that letting out those who are essentially being detained for illegal travel might be a bad idea.
If they have no concern for laws about traveling into our borders, they’re likely not going to be concerned about laws restricting travel within our borders.
Globalist Oligarch George Soros Drops $50 Million Into 2020 Election
The Free Beacon reported that George Soros has pitched in $50 million to Democrats’ PACs and campaigns in the 2020 election cycle.
These contributions represent a record amount of financial support for the billionaire oligarch.
In the 2020 cycle, Soros stepped up his political spending through the Democracy PAC, which he established in 2019 to dump large sums of money into other leftist organizations.
According to new filings to the Federal Election Commission, the PAC donated nearly $17 million last quarter, which brought its total spending for this cycle to $48 million. Soros donated $4 million directly to Democrat campaigns and committees without first funneling the money into his PAC.
The $52 million cash injection is over twice the amount that Soros donated in the 2016 presidential election cycle — $22 million.
Ironically enough, Democrat candidates who have benefited from Soros’ generous candidates have lamented about the influence of money in politics. According to Joe Biden’s government reform plan, he vows to “reduce the corrupting influence of money in politics.” Biden’s website says, “We could improve our politics overnight if we flushed big money from the system and had public financing of our elections…. Democracy works best when a big bank account or a large donor list are not prerequisites for office.”
The Right has criticized Democrat hypocrisy regarded money in politics, while many Democrats still receive Soros money. “While Democrats across the country sanctimoniously rail against the influence of dark money in politics, their party’s largest donors are bankrolling a massive web of liberal organizations to get them elected,” a GOP operative said to the Washington Free Beacon early in July. “George Soros’s unprecedented spending further highlights just how dependent Democrats are on contributions from billionaires, despite their hypocritical rhetoric.”
Soros pitched in $500,000 to the Biden Victory Fund, which has already pulled in $83 million for this cycle.
In 2020, Soros is starting to become sneakier with his electoral spending Previously, he donated to groups directly under his name. Now, he is transferring tens of millions from the Fund for Policy Reform, a nonprofit with a budget of $750 within his vast Open Society Foundation network, into Democracy PAC. From there, the PAC donates it to other Democrat PACs and committees.
Soros views this election cycle as a crucial moment in American history. During a speech at the World Economic Forum earlier this year, the octogenarian billionaire declared that the “fate of the world” is at stake and called Trump a “con man” and “authoritarian” who is “willing to sacrifice the national interests for his personal interests.”
Soros is one of the most prolific globalist oligarchs in the world. His support comes in handy for the Left, which is constantly in need of funds to promote their identity politics causes and other projects such as radical gun control.
This will not be the last time we will hear about Soros.
