Report: Joe Biden’s DHS protects most illegal aliens with ‘sanctuary country’ orders

Share:

WASHINGTON D.C.– Prior to President Joe Biden taking office, many feared that his stance on immigration would be detrimental to the United States. 

In addition to the fact that immigrants now view the U.S. as having an open door policy, Biden is creating policy’s and issuing orders that further jeopardize the safety of all Americans. 

According to reports, almost all of the illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States will now be protected from arrest and deportation, after President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued new orders to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

New guidance from acting ICE Director Tae Johnson instructs agents not to pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation until they have been convicted of aggravated felonies against Americans.

These types of crimes would be considered rape, murder, child pornography, sexual abuse of a minor, trafficking firearms, and theft.

The orders require ICE agents prioritize convicted illegal alien aggravated felons. What is key to note, is illegal aliens convicted of aggravated felonies is a fraction of the United States’ illegal alien population which totals anywhere between 11 to 22 million today.

The orders ensure that any illegal aliens who are not convicted of the felonies listed above, are not prioritized for arrest or deportation. 

According to Breitbart, should ICE agents try to arrest an illegal alien who is not a convicted aggravated felon, or a known or suspected terrorist or gang member, they must first get approval through an arduous chain of command process where a field director or a special agent in charge greenlights the effort.

Former DHS official, now with the Heritage Foundation, Lora Ries said in a statement:

“Forget sanctuary cities — this turns America into a sanctuary country. Prominent Leftists have spent the past months calling to ‘abolish ICE.’ The Biden administration effectively just made their wish come true,”

Analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies has revealed the DHS orders:

“will prevent the arrest and removal of nearly all of ICE’s caseload of criminals — including many aliens who have been convicted of the most serious crimes on the books.”

These orders will likely eliminate 90 percent of illegal aliens who otherwise would have been eligible for deportation from ICE agents. 

The orders have already forced local law enforcement to release criminal illegal aliens back into their communities because ICE agents cannot take them into their custody for arrest and deportation.

Communities in border regions and major cities are likely to see the largest spike in illegal alien criminals being released back into their neighborhoods, Breitbart reported.

Law Enforcement Today recently reported that Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano posted a video to YouTube that was a addressed to President Biden, citing his concerns over the ongoing issues in Texas and the current practice of the Border Patrol releasing detainees in concurrence.

With Texas cleaning up after devastating cold and winter storms, illegal immigrants being released into their communities only further worsens the burdens of the citizens there.

Additionally, ICE has been told to release immigrants further into America, away from the border. Here is more on that story. 

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TX– According to federal law enforcement sources, the release of migrants from detention centers that have too many individuals in the Texas Rio Grande Valley will no longer fall to the Border Patrol agents, but rather on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. 

The release of migrants into border communities by Border Patrol agents will be a last resort option. It is reported that this task should only be carried out by Border Patrol officials when ICE is unavailable. 

The new policy may bring some relief to local shelters in South Texas border communities located in the Rio Grande Valley depending on where ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officials choose to release the migrants.

The change in procedure is likely driven by increased media attention to the issue. It will likely result in migrants being released away from border communities in the Rio Grande Valley, Breitbart reported.

Transportation costs will become a major factor with this new policy, as it is reported that ICE will transport many of the released migrants away from the immediate border region to family residential detention centers while they await their release. 

Family residential detention centers operated by ICE are in smaller Texas communities surrounding San Antonio. It is said that the transportation abilities can not handle moving a large amount of migrants, thus making it likely many of the migrants will remain in the San Antonio area. 

This new policy is designed to combat the backlash that was received after ill-timed migrant releases before the massive winter storm that has debilitated Texas. 

Law Enforcement Today reported that after Biden signed an executive order that halted all construction of the border wall at the United States-Mexico border, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would begin processing and admitting at least 25,000 immigrants on February 19th. 

As if Texas is not dealing with enough trying to survive the cold, a Texas sheriff confirmed that illegal immigrants detained by ICE are being released into the country without COVID-19 testing, claiming a recent memo issued by Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske was a move to “defund ICE by memo.”

We recently brought you the story that Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano posted a video to YouTube that was a addressed to President Biden, citing his concerns over the ongoing issues in Texas and the current practice of the Border Patrol releasing detainees in concurrence: 

“Mr. President, my name is Bruno Lozano – mayor of the city of Del Rio, Texas – and I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates, into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas.”

Mayor Lozano pointed out that the city simply doesn’t, “have the resources available to accommodate,” the influx in migrants that have been released by the Border Patrol in light of the new operational instructions the CBP is functioning under. 

Here is that complete story. 

DEL RIO, TX – With Texas clearly having severe issues related to the frigid temperatures, the Democratic mayor of Del Rio is “pleading” with President Biden to halt the release of detainees by the Border Patrol within Del Rio and the surrounding communities. 

Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano recently posted a video to YouTube that was a addressed to President Biden, citing his concerns over the ongoing issues in Texas and the current practice of the Border Patrol releasing detainees in concurrence: 

“Mr. President, my name is Bruno Lozano – mayor of the city of Del Rio, Texas – and I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates, into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas.”

Mayor Lozano pointed out that the city simply doesn’t, “have the resources available to accommodate,” the influx in migrants that have been released by the Border Patrol in light of the new operational instructions the CBP is functioning under. 

The mayor explained that if President Biden doesn’t come up with a plan quick for these released detainees, then he’ll be forced to use his powers as the mayor to bar the released detainees from the city: 

“I will have no choice but use the extreme measure under the emergency declaration as the mayor of the city of Del Rio, Texas to refuse entry of migrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio.”

To put matters into perspective, Del Rio is a city that hosts roughly 50,000 residents – so upward fluctuations in the population in any measure during a period with issues related to water, power and grocery shortages can have a undesirable impact. 

During a montage featuring the barren grocery stores in Texas, Mayor Lozano says during the video: 

“If you do send these individuals into our community, we will be forced to make a decision to leave them without resources under these dire circumstances.”

“I’m asking you to stop. Please make another plan for this federal issue.”

In an effort to at least see a measure of compromise, Mayor Lozano noted in the video that if President Biden can’t stop the releasing of detained migrants into Del Rio and the surrounding areas – then the Biden administration should provide the means to accommodate the released detainees.  

But outside of the aspects related to lacking resources in the forms of electricity, water and groceries – Mayor Lozano also pointed out that there’s issues related to the pandemic with these releases ongoing within border communities: 

“This administration has taken a firm stance on COVID-19 protections for Americans. I’m asking you to ensure the health and safety of all our tax paying citizens along the border are treated with the same urgent consideration.”

“Releasing the migrant population without any COVID-19 protection protocols is undermining your commitment to the stance against COVID-19.”

Without mincing his words, Mayor Lozano spelled it out clear as day that with the current pandemic, the release of migrants into the community is just too compounding of an issue with all that Texas is enduring at the time: 

“I cannot mix the migrant population with Del Rio residents that are extremely vulnerable and have been displaced due to the extreme weather.”

“We may be a small town that is off of your radar, but we are a community of 50,000 people who need your attention.”

It’s currently unclear whether President Biden, or any relevant person within his administration, has heard the request as of this writing.
