The former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says the new administration’s steps to narrow the criteria for immigration enforcement are “just ridiculous.”
“It’s almost like it’s not illegal to be illegally in the United States anymore,” Tom Homan told The Epoch Times on Feb. 18.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Feb. 18 announced new enforcement priorities that will focus on three groups of illegal immigrants: national security threats such as known or suspected terrorists; those who crossed the border illegally after Nov. 1, 2020; and public safety threats who are convicted of aggravated felonies.
ICE agents are now required to get permission from their superiors before arresting any illegal alien who fall outside the three approved categories.
“It’s ridiculous for a law enforcement officer to have to call a supervisor for permission to enforce the law. The law is black and white. Name a state trooper that needs to get approval to write a speeding ticket,” Homan told told The Epoch Times.
The Epoch Times referred to ICE’s end-of-year report, which reveals that 92 percent of the nearly 186,000 illegal aliens deported in fiscal year 2020 had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.
Homan said, “Every crime committed by an illegal alien is a preventable crime. If we had true border security, true immigration enforcement—if we actually enforced immigration laws in this country and secured our border—thousands of crimes every day could be prevented because they’re not here.”
Homan warned that the Biden administration is basically making immigration law meaningless.
Below is a recent interview with Homan on Fox News, as he discusses the new ICE guidelines.
