As with “Defund the Police,” “Abolish ICE” also wasn’t a slogan.
It is a policy which has been essentially implemented by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on behalf of progressive activist groups. Illegal aliens are no longer arrested after crossing the border. DHS is pivoting from immigration enforcement to countering “domestic extremism.”
“Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is responding to progressive pressure to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, planning “significant changes” to how the agency gauges success as apprehensions plummet to historic lows and frustration simmers among agents.
Speaking to the Washington Post in an interview published Tuesday, Mayorkas explained how he was focused on “elevating all of the other work” ICE does, as opposed to measuring agency success by the number of deportations and arrests.
“I really am focused on [ICE] becoming a premier national security and law enforcement agency. I really want to elevate all of the other work it does and also ensure that its civil immigration work is well-focused in the service of the national security and public safety mission,” the secretary told the paper. …
He did not say what kind of feedback he has received, but ICE officials told the paper that President Biden and Mayorkas had placed such stringent restrictions on deportation officials that their work was effectively abolished. …
Employees argued that officers were too worried about the potential to be reprimanded over an arrest to actually make one. Instead, they spend their time idling or working out.
While border crossings reach a 20-year high, ICE is currently averaging one arrest every two months. …”
Is this “far right” misinformation?
No, you can read about it in The Washington Post. The Squad is in charge now.
“At the detention centers and county jails that the Trump administration once filled with immigrants facing deportation, thousands of beds are now empty. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers that President Donald Trump lavished with praise have far less to do on the streets of U.S. cities these days.
Under new Biden administration rules curtailing immigration enforcement, ICE carried out fewer than 3,000 deportations last month, the lowest level on record. The agency’s 6,000 officers currently average one arrest every two months.
ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation. The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.
The immigrant advocacy groups and lawyers who wield significant influence in the Biden White House are pushing to eliminate more detention facilities and reduce deportations even further, despite a 20-year high in illegal border crossings.
The Biden administration is preparing to release its first Department of Homeland Security budget request this week, and immigrant advocates want deep cuts to ICE. …
Under Biden’s new rules, deportation officers must seek written authorization from senior-level supervisors to arrest anyone who is not a recent border crosser, a national security threat or an aggravated felon who poses a public safety hazard. …
One of the priority groups, recent border crossers, are effectively no longer subject to arrest once they reach the U.S. interior. Unaccompanied minors and families are also largely exempt, unless they are convicted of a serious crime. …”
ICE is beyond redemption.
No one is officially an “alien” in Joe Biden’s America.
As with law enforcement, immigration enforcement is also systematically racist against People of Color and must be abolished. If not outright abolished, it must be essentially stopped which is the experiment in woke progressive values that we have embarked on at the border.
If you are comfortable being a White male, support free speech, want to preserve monuments of George Washington, celebrate Columbus Day instead of PRIDE Month, resist the global protein transition, still believe in outdated notions like the existence of two genders, law enforcement and immigration enforcement, especially if you are from the South, you fit the profile of “far right domestic extremism.” You are the biggest problem facing this country right now.
Note: The “Latinx” people who live along the border are angry about it.
