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.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
