Speaking of “fiscal no-brainers,” the Administration keeps asking for less money to fund ICE detention facilities, even as they’re releasing tens of thousands of detainees to alleviate overcrowding.
ICE officials evidently are not eager to comment on this report, but its author, former State Department foreign service officer Jessica Vaughan, discussed it with The Blaze. ”I think it’s important for the public to understand that ICE is able to identify more criminal aliens than ever before and yet they’re not allowed to uphold their sworn oath to uphold the laws because of the policies put in place by this administration to deliberately suppress immigration law enforcement,” Vaughan alleged. ”The result is that not only are illegal immigrants not being detoured from settling here but once they get here, even if they have shown that they’re a threat to the public by committing crimes [the administration] ignores it and they are sent back into our communities.”
To give you an idea of what sort of criminals they’re releasing, Vaughan mentioned an illegal alien charged with 42 counts of predatory sexual acts on children. He was released from ICE custody wearing an electronic ankle bracelet, found a way to remove it, blew off his hearings, and disappeared.
The hazy status of immigration makes a mockery of both citizenship and the rule of law. At the moment, immigration is more like a set of strong suggestions than a body of laws. If we’re not going to take these laws seriously, we should remove them from the books and throw the border open – at least then Americans would have a clear idea of where the Ruling Class stands, instead of finding out the hard way, when the guy with 42 counts of preying on children pops up in their neighborhood. If we are still serious about citizenship and the rule of law, it’s long past time to accept that laws are meaningless without enforcement, and enforcement demands resources.
Obviously, the people who want to remodel the American workforce and electorate through mass illegal immigration have other things they’d like to do with those resources. Pretending to trust them as honest champions of the law is foolish, as is the notion of striking grand bargains of amnesty for enforcement with them. We shouldn’t have to cut deals with the Ruling Class and pay them political bribes to secure enforcement of the law, and as we can see from this ICE report, it wouldn’t work anyway. At the very least, let’s agree to clean up the most absurd abuses of the system and install a more trustworthy President before we talk about any “comprehensive” reform packages. As it stands, we’re not even remotely talking about the same thing when we use words like “immigration” and “enforcement.”
