A law enforcement official has been suspended in Fairfax County, VA for holding a driver at the scene of an accident so they could be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.
Fairfax County police Chief Ed Roessler released a statement on Tuesday that the officer is being suspended for his behavior during a Sept. 21 traffic accident that took place in the Alexandria section of the Harrison Lane and South Kings Highway.
After arriving to the accident scene, he officer found that one individual was not in possession of a drivers license. He ran their information and found that the individual had skipped a deportation hearing and was wanted by ICE. He contacted an ICE agent, and the illegal alien was detained.
Roessler claims that the illegal alien should not have been turned over to ICE because the illegal was not being detained for violating the law, despite the fact that the individual was driving without the possession of a license.
The offending officer has been “relieved of all law enforcement duties pending the outcome of this investigation.” He is suspected of violating county police protocol which states that if “the individual is not in custody or being taken into custody for any other violation of law, officers shall not … take the individual into custody based solely upon the [Immigration Violators File] hit.”
Roessler maintains that his officers are taught in the academy that “we do not enforce nor detain for administrative warrants, and we have no authority to enforce federal law.”
“Our county is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and no one should have the perception that FCPD is acting as a civil immigration agent for ICE. This matter damages our reputation and the longstanding policy that I have stated many times that our officers shall not act as immigration agents,” Roessler said, making the agenda behind the officer’s suspension very clear.
Fairfax was officially given sanctuary county status last year:
Fairfax County’s jail will no longer comply with federal immigration authorities’ detainer requests on illegal immigrants, the sheriff announced Tuesday, joining the number of communities that are balking at assisting President Trump on immigration.
Sheriff Stacey A. Kincaid said her department will still share information on people booked into the jail with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. But it will not hold them beyond their regular release time, she said.
She gave ICE 120 days’ notice, meaning the new refusal policy will kick in May 23.
“We found it expedient to no longer have an agreement that required us to extend our resources beyond these obligations,” the sheriff said.
Fairfax County is the largest jurisdiction in Virginia and the largest in the Washington region. More than 30 percent of its 1.1 million people are immigrants.
Immigrant-rights groups cheered the announcement, but said the county should go even further toward sanctuary status.
“This is a victory for the immigrant residents in Fairfax County,” said Michelle LaRue, director of the Virginia office for CASA, a major immigrant-rights advocate. “This is step in the right direction and a way to restore trust within the immigrant community.”
If Fairfax County isn’t careful, they will end up like adjacent Montgomery County, MD. Montgomery has seen at least nine instances of illegal aliens committing sex crimes since July as the county has become a hot spot of sorts for third-world rapists since declaring itself a sanctuary county during the summer.
Border Patrol Expects 13,000 Illegal Alien Minors to Arrive at the Border in May ALONE
A consequence of Biden’s open borders policy.
Customs and Border Patrol is expecting more than 13,000 unaccompanied minor illegal aliens to arrive at the US-Mexico border in the month of May alone, bracing for unprecedented ‘caravan’ style migration to the United States as President Joe Biden dismantles ICE and opens the immigration system to dubious asylum seekers.
A CBP official provided the projection to the Biden administration on Thursday. The already increasing arrival of child migrants during Biden’s presidency have revealed the “kids in cages” talking point of the Left and the media to be little more than a political prop, with CBP and DHS detaining the minors in the exact same detention facilities.
“We’re seeing the highest February numbers than we’ve ever seen in the history of the [Unaccompanied Alien Child] program,” a CBP official was quoted as telling Axios on Thursday. The border agency expects caravan-style migration to pick up in earnest in the spring months, possibly presenting a genuine border crisis for Biden, who has promised to obey a strict ‘America Last’ approach to the border and immigration.
The federal government was never going to release minors from another country onto the streets of the United States without the support of relatives, or hand them off to the already troubled group home system.
Biden’s de facto invitation of illegal immigration will prove to be an invitation for dangerous journeys from minors from Central America and Mexico. Human smugglers often utilize supposed minors to pose as family units in hopes of amnesty from the United States. Many of the unaccompanied minors who arrive in the United States have been instructed to come to the country in hopes of enabling legal residency for the adult family.
The Biden administration is actively expanding minor detention centers in response to the current surge of illegal immigration, with previous faux-moral sanctimony about ‘kids in cages’ demonstrated to be little more than political propaganda. If you don’t want to detain illegal alien minors in federal facilities, don’t create border policies that serve as a de facto invitation for smugglers to traffic them.
