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.

Biden Pledges “Not Another Foot” Of Border Wall Construction If He’s Elected President

A return to the open borders status quo.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pledged that construction of new border wall would be stopped in the event he’s elected president, halting the progress that has been made in building a wall under President Donald Trump’s administration. President Trump proposed the construction of a border wall as his signature campaign proposal in 2016, and the federal government has built more then 265 miles of new border wall during his tenure.

There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration,” President Biden promised in an interview with the Dallas Morning News. Biden went on to claim that the federal government would use “high-tech capacity” on the border, an approach long favored by Democrats who emphasize promptly placing illegal aliens into the asylum process over enforcing American immigration laws and deterring illegal entry.

Biden would also end litigation to confiscate land along the border for national security purposes. “End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land.

Biden did decline to commit to “tearing down” the border wall that has already been constructed.

Illegal immigration has begun to surge once again as the American economy progresses from the damage of the coronavirus pandemic, and Border Security have recently apprehended large groups of criminal aliens working with open borders groups in smuggling operations.

A hypothetical Biden presidency would all but invite hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegal immigrants to the country, with prospective border crossers hoping to take advantage of a lax immigration enforcement system focused on a few hardened criminals.
