On Wednesday, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that it will stop most operations aimed at detaining illegal aliens in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This will seriously weaken ongoing efforts to enforce President Trump’s tougher policies against illegals.

An official statement from ICE stated that this measure, which is only temporary, is necessary to “ensure the welfare and safety of the general public as well as officers and agents.”

ICE says that while the emergency lasts, they will only use their resources to attempt to stop those who are considered a risk to public safety or who have committed serious crimes. Likewise, they said they would not attempt to detain anyone near medical facilities unless absolutely necessary, given that some illegals are fearful that going to doctors might result in them being deported, including those who may be showing signs of coronavirus infection. In the meantime, ICE officers say that they will either delay enforcement or utilize “alternatives to detainment,” at least until the emergency measures pass.

ICE currently has nearly 38,000 foreign nationals in detention.

ICE has been criticized by illegal immigrant activists for not curbing its efforts since the crisis began. Likewise, some officials have been recommending that ICE increase “social distancing” in an effort to prevent spreading the virus further.

It is not only ICE that has enacted such policies. Police departments around the country – including those in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn – have announced that they will no longer be pursuing those accused of minor crimes, and have given officers discretion to choose not to arrest suspects.

These precautions, while unfortunate, are indeed necessary, as has been demonstrated by the fact that nearly 500 employees of the Department of Homeland Security have been quarantined as part of coronavirus measures. If law enforcement doesn’t take steps to decrease the risk to its officers, America could find itself without the necessary personnel to maintain law and order, were a significant percentage of them become seriously ill with the coronavirus at the same time.

It seems that protecting America’s sovereignty and defending against criminality will be yet another casualty of the coronavirus’ onslaught.

  1. Oh wonderful, now they will be pouring into America like flipping cock roaches Once you let your a\guard down or turn off the lights, then BANG their here to stay.

  2. NOW? More than ever strong enforcement is needed more than ever! We don’t know where these people are coming from or what they bring with them. TB, mumps, measles, whooping cough are all on the rise again because of the undocumented aliens. An illegal is NOT a sick bird!!

  3. Stupid stupid stupid.
    By announcing that, you just told the criminals and immigrants that they have a free pass…

  4. Put a Bounty on the Illegals and pay people to take them out!! Spreading it across our nation is NOT the answer!!!

  5. What we need to do with these criminal illegal aliens is stand them up against the nearest wall and summarily SHOOT THEM!!!

  6. In other words they’re going to ignore any who aren’t showing symptoms into the public although they may be carrying the virus. That’s their logic?

  7. I am a America loving, Trump supporter, but I do agree, the brave men and women of Ice, deserve to try to protect themselves and their families from the different disease that illegals will bring with them to suck up free medical and financial benefits, and the TREASONIST DEMONCRATS WILL NOT try to reach out and help them, because illegals mean MORE DEMOCRAT VOTES,!!!!!

  8. AMEN…..WE HAVE LAWS…THEY NEED TO BE OBEYED, SIMPLE…DOESN’T TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO FIGURE THAT OUT…IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO BREAK INTO THIS NATION..WE NEED TO ENFORCE.
