Los Angeles Jails Have Refused to Hand Over 25,000 Criminal Illegal Aliens to ICE

The ultimate sanctuary city.

Published

Federal immigration enforcement data obtained by the Washington Examiner indicate that the Los Angeles jail system has denied over 25,000 detainer requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, almost certainly releasing more criminal illegal aliens onto the streets than any other so-called sanctuary city.

The data has been released as Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva is changing policy to deny immigration transfers of new categories of even more dangerous criminals. Now, virtually no charged and convicted illegal alien criminals will be transferred to ICE in Los Angeles, forcing the federal agency to make dangerous and at times tenuous arrests of criminal aliens on the streets of the community.

As the sheriff of Los Angeles County, I am responsible for everyone’s public safety, regardless of immigration status,” Villanueva said in a statement. “I will not allow an entire segment of the population to be afraid to report crimes to law enforcement and be forced, again, back into the shadows.

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Executive Associate Director Henry Lucero slammed the Democrat Sheriff’s commitment to open borders in a statement to the Washington Examiner, calling him out for the most severe attack on federal immigration laws on the part of a local or county official.

I believe the greatest threat to public safety are the more than 10 million LA County residents who stand to be victimized due to the release of convicted criminal aliens by law enforcement officials, especially the LA County Sheriff’s,” said Lucero. “This makes it more difficult and more dangerous. Undoubtedly, multiple people will be victimized as a result of this dangerous position.

Department of Justice programs enacted by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions provide guidelines for federal authorities to enforce immigration laws in left-wing sanctuary cities, going above their usual duties if necessary to ensure that the most dangerous criminal aliens are apprehended with the assistance of local law enforcement or not.

Los Angeles’ free pass to criminal aliens is willing subversion of American immigration laws and the sovereignty of the United States.

Biden DHS Secretary to Illegal Immigrants: “We’re Not Saying ‘Don’t Come,’ We’re Saying ‘Don’t Come Now'”

Did he just endorse illegal immigration?

Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, appeared at Monday’s White House press briefing to give an overview of what he and the DHS are doing to “replace the cruelty” of the Trump administration’s immigration processes and to take questions from reporters.

In response to a reporter’s question about how he was going to rebuild the DHS and reunite families, Mayorkas began by saying that they are “progressing every single day” on building a system to accept “asylum seekers”—read: illegal immigrants—through ports of entry.

We are progressing every single day. I don’t have a particular timeline, but all I can do is communicate, both to the American public and to the individuals seeking protection, that we are working around the clock seven days a week to make that timeframe as short as possible, but they need to wait. But they need to wait with a particular goal in mind. We are not saying ‘don’t come,’ we are saying ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible. There have been, I understand, approximately 105 families reunited in the recent past. That is through the extraordinary efforts of counsel and others in the community. We are joining with counsel, with members of the community to work on this.”

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Big League Politics has covered Mayorkas closely since his nomination to DHS secretary by Joe Biden. He previously said he would stop construction of the border wall and that he was unsure what he’d do with the amount of wall already built.
