U.S. District Court Judge Andre Birrote Jr, an appointee of former President Barack Hussein Obama, issued an injunction last week preventing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from using ‘Secure Communities’ databases to identify and detain illegals in parts of California.
Birotte determined that ICE’s database had “serious errors.” The rights of the illegals were violated by the program, he stated while issuing his injunction that will further exacerbate the flooding at the U.S. southern border.
“The result, of course,” Birrote explained in his ruling, “is that many U.S. citizens become exposed to possible false arrest when ICE relies solely on deficient databases.”
The class-action lawsuit, Gonzalez v. ICE, had been pending since 2013. The plaintiffs were represented in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), the legal firm Kaye, McLane, Bednarski + Litt LLP, the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), and, of course, the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California (ACLU SoCal).
The ruling will pertain to all ICE detainers carried out in the Central District of California, and the far-left ACLU is gloating as a result.
“This decision is a major indictment of ICE’s dragnet deportation program, which for more than a decade has subjected citizens and non-citizens to needless unconstitutional arrests at the mere click of a button,” said Jennie Pasquarella, senior staff attorney and director of immigrants’ rights for the ACLU SoCal.
“Reams of evidence presented at trial demonstrated ICE’s complete disregard for the people impacted by its actions and its concern only with using an automated system to arrest record numbers of people,” she added.
ICE’s “Secure Communities” program was suspended during the Obama regime, and then re-enacted by President Trump’s Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States executive order in 2017. ICE describes their program as follows:
Secure Communities will utilize all available data systems and Criminal Alien Program resources to identify and take enforcement actions (to include the lodging of detainers) against criminal and other priority aliens while they are in the custody of another law enforcement or correctional agency. This will prevent their release back into the community, and thus stop the cycle of recidivism perpetrated by many of these criminal and immigration offenders.
Secure Communities had a long and successful history prior to its suspension as indicated above. In fact, from its inception in 2008 through FY14 and since its reactivation on January 25, 2017 through the end of FY 2017, Secure Communities interoperability led to the removal of over 363,400 criminal aliens from the U.S.
The crippling of this program will only further add to the sanctuary policies that have already caused the state of California to descend into third-world squalor.
“This year, ICE lodged over 11,000 detainers with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, but unfortunately, less than 500 of those detainers have been honored,” said David Marin, Field Office Director for ICE ERO in Los Angeles.
“These are criminal aliens and immigration violators who have been arrested and were in the custody of local law enforcement agencies,” he added.
The federal kritarchy, or rule by robed lawyers acting outside of the bounds of the constitution and rule of law, is putting the most vulnerable at risk. The enemies of America are cheering as a result of this incomprehensible ruling.
“I think the decision is a tremendous blow to ICE’s Secure Communities deportation program and to Trump’s effort to use police throughout the country to further his deportation programs,” Jessica Bansal, senior staff attorney with the ACLU of Southern California, said to the Los Angeles Times.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus
Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.
President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.
The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.
“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.
Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.
“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”
Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”
During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.
“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.
“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.
The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.
“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.
Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
