Matt Gaetz Introduces Legislation To Deport All Illegal Aliens in US Custody During Pandemic

The PANDEMIC Act would deport all illegal aliens in federal custody.

Congressman Matt Gaetz has introduced legislation to deport all illegal aliens held in federal custody during federally recognized epidemic such as the ongoing coronavirus emergency.

Gaetz broke down the case for what he’s calling the PANDEMIC Act in a statement provided to Fox News on Wednesday.

“It is unconscionable that at a time when we should be working together as Americans, Democrats are working to socially engineer our country and advance their legislative priorities,” Gaetz said. “The PANDEMIC Act puts Americans first by requiring that all illegal aliens be deported during a pandemic, ensuring our resources are used to benefit and protect American citizens.”

Gaetz is framing his proposal as a response to a recent jailbreak initiative spearheaded by Democrats to free all illegal immigrants in federal custody. Pramila Jayapal and Cory Booker are claiming that the illegals in ICE custody need to be freed in order to escape the risk of the coronavirus spreading in the immigration detention facilities.

Minnesota progressive Ilhan Omar has also requested that ICE suspend all deportations during the coronavirus crisis, opening the border to illegal travel in an era of a global pandemic.

Gaetz’ proposal would instead ensure they’re returned to their home country, allowing illegal immigrants to avoid the risks of contracting the disease in federal custody. It would also allow the government to preserve resources necessary to protect in the public that would otherwise be used for immigration detention.

Strict enforcement since the onset of the coronavirus epidemic has largely ground illegal immigration to a halt, suggesting such an approach may prove to be successful after the disease is contained. Customs and Border Patrol have promptly expelled more than 10,000 illegal border crossers since the onset of the emergency, leaving the detention facilities of the federal agencies with less than 100 inmates.

Illegal Immigrant Arrested in Fatal Virginia Hit-and-Run

Pichinte Echeverria entered the country illegally.

Published

An illegal immigrant has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a Virginia hit-and-run incident that caused the death of a 62-year old man.

Pichinte Echeverria was arrested at his workplace on Monday, two weeks after the May 6 death of Alberto Anthony Marino. Marino had been struck in a roadway earlier by a vehicle, and was struck again when laying in the roadway by the driver of a Nissan Xterra, fatally. The drivers of both vehicles fled the scene after striking the Virginia man.

Authorities are describing Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria, 35, of 6502 Monarch Road in Frederick, Md, as the driver of the Xterra. A source informed Potomac Local News that Echeverria had entered the country illegally at some point on Wednesday.

Law enforcement were able to identify Echeverria as the driver of the Xterra using surveillance footage obtained from a nearby gas station.

Local police are still looking for the driver of the first vehicle to strike Marino, which they say was a Toyota Corolla.

Echeverria is being charged with felony hit and run for his involvement in the incident. In any event, it appears likely that Marino’s death could’ve been avoided if not for Echeverria’s alleged reckless carelessness and illegal presence in the United States. Should he be convicted of the felony hit and run charges, he’ll likely serve a sentence in federal prison before being subject to deportation proceedings.
