ICE Shutting Down Most Immigration Enforcement During Coronavirus Epidemic

ICE is going easy on illegals during the pandemic.

Published

Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Wednesday that the agency would cease most of its immigration enforcement operations during the nationwide coronavirus emergency, a move that leaves many spectators concerned about the possibility of illegal aliens taking advantage of the agency’s freeze.

An official ICE statement on the change in approach confirmed that for the time being, the agency is returning to its old Obama Administration-era priority of focusing solely on illegals with felony convictions. The vast majority of illegal immigrants won’t be targeted for immigration enforcement during this time.

The agency will not “will not carry out enforcement operations at or near health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities, except in the most extraordinary of circumstances.”

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) “will exercise discretion to delay enforcement actions until after the crisis or utilize alternatives to detention, as appropriate.

At the very least, immigration enforcement actions by the agency are being delayed until the presence of the virus passes over.

The approach is similar to that adopted by the law enforcement agencies of several major American cities. Philadelphia’s District Attorney and Police Department have already issued an internal memorandum ordering that individuals committing nominally “petty” crimes such as burglary, vandalism, property theft and prostitution won’t be arrested during the height of the pandemic. Officers will instead retain their information for criminal prosecution at a later date.

However, Customs and Border Patrol is said to be turning away all asylum seekers and illegal immigrants seeking access at the nation’s borders. Federal refugee resettlement has also been suspended for the time being.

A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.

Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.

The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.

Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.

Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
