Thanks to the sanctuary policies in Wake County, North Carolina, undocumented individuals who are currently facing charges such as child sex crimes, murder and drug trafficking could be free to wander the streets of the United States.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a statement slamming local jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal agents in facilitating the removal of illegal immigrant criminals from our country.
“[W]hen local jurisdictions refuse to cooperate with federal law enforcement, they not only betray their duty to protect public safety, but force ICE to be more visible in those areas,” read the statement that also asked these locations to “transfer these individuals to federal custody instead of releasing them to the community where they may reoffend.”
ICE created a list of 25 outstanding detainer requests made of several counties in North Carolina. Of those 25, 12 are facing charges for sexual offense, the majority of which involve child victims. Eight of them involve drug crimes (possession or trafficking,) and four involve murder charges. Not the kind of people that the average person would like to come across while on their way to the grocery store.
The statement went on to say, in no uncertain terms, that ICE is committed to enforcing immigration laws as passed by the United States Congress, and will do so with or without the help of local law enforcement agencies. It also made clear that a lack of cooperation with federal immigration officials means an increased presence of ICE agents in their communities.
Acting Director Albence reiterated that ICE is mandated to uphold the federal immigration laws enacted by Congress, and that the agency will carry out its sworn mission, with or without the cooperation of local law enforcement agencies.
“It is my sincere desire to work with local partners to whatever extent they are willing to work with this agency in what should be our shared goal to ensure public safety,” he said. “Uncooperative jurisdictions such as Wake County should be on notice that as long as criminal offenders are being released, they should get used to seeing a lot more ICE at-large enforcement activity in their communities.”
In an effort to curb insubordination from local sheriffs, Republican Senator Thom Tillis from North Carolina has introduced legislation that will endeavor to clarify the Department of Homeland Security’s detainer authority. This aims to cut down on sheriffs who “make up excuses” to not honor ICE detainer requests.
“We cannot and will not stand by and let these criminals walk our streets and put our communities in danger,” said Tillis in a statement.
Moves like these aim to highlight the potential dangers of sanctuary policies that put the comfort of illegal aliens over the safety and protection of their own citizens. It’s unclear whether this eye-opening look into the realities of our justice system are having any tangible effect on the way progressive liberals run their cities.
But it’s not just our elected officials who are looking to thwart fairness and justice. On October 19, an eatery in Seattle found itself home to a despicable hoax. A reported robbery/sexual assault that took place on their property turned out to be a massive lie perpetrated by the “robbers,” “victims” and restaurant staff, who were all in it. The intended result? To receive visas that are sometimes given to the victims of crime.
