SANCTUARY NATION: ICE Official Says Biden Has Abolished Agency in All But Name
An anonymous ICE official has confirmed that President Joe Biden has abolished the agency in all but name, speaking to the Washington Post over the weekend. “They’ve abolished ICE without abolishing ICE,” said the senior DHS official. “The pendulum swing is so extreme. It literally feels like we’ve gone from the ability to fully enforce our immigration laws to now being told to enforce nothing.”
Within a week of his inauguration, the new President had ordered ICE to release all illegal aliens from ICE immigration detention facilities. A majority of immigration detainees are convicted felons, some of whom will be released into communities under Biden’s “Sanctuary Country” approach. The immigration jailbreak was initially walked back following a bombshell report from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on the amnesty measure, but Biden has rushed to implement other open borders measures in its stead. The jailbreak measure was expected to release as many as 12,000 violent offenders into American communities- every month.
It’s expected that Biden will direct ICE towards customs duties and a handful of deportations of the most violent felons, effectively neutering immigration enforcement. Customs and Border Patrol officials have reported an onslaught of illegal immigration at the southern border, with illegals arriving from uncommon nations with the (accurate) impression they’ll be granted full amnesty and welfare under the Biden government. The overflow of illegal migration has filled CBP detention facilities, forcing Border Patrol to simply release illegals they detain at the border.
CBP has reported arresting as many as 3,000 aliens per day, a stark increase from the border policies of the Trump administration. The Biden administration has begun an effort to cease use of the term ‘illegal alien’ in US law, instead recognizing those that infiltrate the borders illegally as guests.
Biden has pledged to provide US citizenship to nearly every illegal alien in the United States before January 1, 2021, in what would be the greatest piece of amnesty legislation ever enacted. It’s unclear if Biden’s citizenship legislation will get anywhere in the 50-50 Senate.
