In what is becoming sadly far too familiar, we see once more the Democrats moving to protect illegals, all while Americans around them are sick and dying. No longer do we even matter, the concern on the left is to attack Trump at all cost and then to protect the illegals, especially the criminal ones, for they didn’t vote for Trump, the insanity is finally starting to be laid in the open.
Part of this is coming from a concern of coronavirus infections when illegals are arrested and detained, these cases are on the rise, this has led the Democrats with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, and Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal introduced the Federal Immigrant Release for Safety and Security Together (FIRST) Act via on Monday.
While many Democrats have voiced concern over the possibility of spread to illegals, we have heard the same thing with criminals. This is the first time they have moved from expressing this to trying to put in place laws to tie the hands of ICE and immigration officials.
“It’s a question of will our country that believes in ideals, like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, believes that everyone is born with inalienable rights,” Booker said on Monday during a virtual press conference about the bill, according to the Independent.
“We must make sure our immigration policies reflect those values and affirm the dignity and well being of all people in crisis. We don’t abandon our values, we as a nation we double down on them.”
The First Act would, if put into law, release all detainees, regardless of crimes into the general public, but that seems fine with the Democratic Left, why not throw MS-13 and others on the streets, they can join the criminals released from jails.
It’s not immediately clear who would be deemed “a significant public safety risk” under the bill’s guidelines. Nevertheless, lawmakers argue this is an issue of health and safety.
“We’ve been following public health guidelines by staying home and practicing physical distance distancing, and hopefully, emotional closeness,” Jayapal, the other sponsor of the bill, said Monday. “And of course, frequently washing our hands.”
“But for immigrants and particularly those who are held in detention centers, following these guidelines can be almost impossible,” Jayapal continued.
While the numbers of criminals detained in comparison to the total population may seem small (there are currently 33,863 foreign nationals presently detained by ICE, according to the agency’s most recent numbers, of these, 14,049 are listed as convicted criminals, and another 4,646 have pending criminal charges.), the fact is the numbers do makeup over half of all people detained right now by ICE.
I have said the same thing with the criminals being released:
If Pramila Jayapal and Corey Booker wish to release all illegal criminals, then we should demand that the most hardened criminals that are being released be forced to move in next door to these two.
The Democrats have exposed themselves, more then ever during this crises, that they are the un-American party, their concern is not for their constituents, they care move about taking away our rights to defend ourselves, to release criminals in our midst after they have disarmed everyone, then set their governors free with unconstitutional restrictions set upon American citizens, rights are taken that was never theirs to take.
No governor has the right on a whim to strip us of our civil liberties. It is time we start to respond to this.
