ICE locks Twitter account which informed public of freed criminal illegals released in sanctuary cities

SOUTHERN BORDER- As coronavirus restrictions remain in place in blue states throughout the country while a number of red states have relaxed them, the Biden administration is busy opening the southern border to all manner of illegal aliens, releasing many of them into the country who are COVID positive.

To add injury to insult, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), no doubt at the direction of Biden (or more accurately his handlers) locked it’s safety alert Twitter account on Tuesday, putting a halt to public safety alerts on illegal aliens in the US with criminal backgrounds, Fox News says.

The account was created in 2013 under the Obama administration, and was reinforced under President Trump.

The account was designed to post details about known “fugitives,” which included their name, nationality, criminal history and U.S. jurisdiction where they were released.

Former senior advisor to ICE, Jon Feere wrote on Twitter Tuesday:

“It seems the Biden Admin locked [ICE Alerts] because if you were to report the location of one of these dangerous aliens to ICE – it would become too obvious that these assaulters, drug dealers, thieves and drunk drivers are no allowed to go free under Biden’s policies.”

Feere slammed Biden and his administration for hiding information about criminal aliens, in particular those with sexual assault and child abuse offenses.

This is especially egregious at a time when human trafficking, in particular where it concerns children and minors has become a human rights issue.

“ICE used to post ‘Most Wanted Wednesday’ tweets aimed at getting the public’s help in locating public safety threats,” Feere added.

“The Biden Admin is apparently not too interested in public safety.”

An ICE spokesperson told Fox News that the account was no longer being utilized under the new administration:

“ICE continues to use its main twitter account, @ICEgov, and our regional twitter accounts to communicate with the public about our national security, border security, and public safety mission.”

“ICE routinely updates its many communication tools to ensure accurate information remains consistent with current priorities. As with similar accounts associated with prior administrations’ policies, @ICEalerts was archived as it was no longer being maintained,” adding that other social media accounts remain active in order to disseminate updated information to the public.

The latest move by Biden is an apparent attempt to try to distance itself from the administration under which he served as vice president. Under the Obama administration, some three million migrants were deported, which Biden now calls a “big mistake.”

“We took far too long to get it right,” Biden said last month in an interview with Univision.

“It was painful. It took too long. But we began to get it right with the DACA program.”

According to the Washington Times, the last alert issued was on January 21 and concerned a man named Ali Morit, a citizen of Yemen who ICE said was released by the New York City Police Department even though he had been charged with assault and acting in a manner to injure a juvenile. He had already been kicked out of the US once.

Feere decided that since the Biden administration appeared to be no longer concerned about the release of dangerous felons into communities, he would fill the void. He decided to post a number of alerts himself so they are able to be retweeted from his account.

Among those he tweeted were three Mexican men with DUI charges on their records. They had been deported a combined 23 times previously…yes, you read that correctly…23 times. They had been sought by ICE during the Trump administration, however California jurisdictions acting as “sanctuaries” released him in defiance of those requests.

During both the Trump and Obama administrations, ICE maintained the position that sanctuaries were a danger, shielding people with criminal records for being turned over to be deported.

When ICE had posted safety alerts, they posted the following on each one:

“When jurisdictions fail to honor an ICE detainer, it risks both public and officer safety, and unnecessarily expends ICE’s already-limited resources,” the account would read on each notice.

In addition to Twitter alerts, ICE in the past has paid for billboards to highlight releases from local communities under sanctuary policies.

Billboards went up in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, for example which identified aliens with criminal records who were released by local authorities into those communities.

ICE hasn’t indicated what their plans are for those billboards in the future, however given the Biden’s administration light on illegals policies, those will probably also go by the wayside.

Biden has promised to “modernize” the U.S.’s immigration policies; read open the borders to anyone who wants to come here. On Monday, radical Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that families separated at the border will be allowed to reunite in the U.S. and seek a path to citizenship.

In other words, children who came here smuggled in by coyotes and other human traffickers will have their families rewarded by the US actually seeking out those parents in other countries and bringing them into the country.

“We are hoping to reunite the families, either here or in their country of origin. We hope to be in a position to give them the election,” Mayorkas said in a press briefing.

“And if, in fact, they seek to reunite here in the United States, we will explore lawful pathways for them to remain in the United States, and to address the family needs.”

“We are acting as restoratively as possible,” Mayorkas added.
