In an extraordinary letter, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is now demanding that the Biden Administration stop its illicit practice of releasing dangerous criminal illegal aliens in lieu of the Administration’s attempt to nationalize a “sanctuary city” policy.
According to Breitbart News, Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson recently ordered that agents not pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation until they have been convicted of aggravated felonies against Americans - despite the majority of illegal alien crimes targeting other immigrants.
For context, this means that under the Biden Administration, about 9-in-10 illegal aliens who would have otherwise been detained and removed will not be rewarded for breaking the law and allowed to continue living in the U.S.
Besides the reasonable demand that the President and his Administration do their jobs, during the press conference, Gov. DeSantis also directed Fla. state agencies to notify local law enforcement officials every time a criminal illegal alien is released in the community as a result of Biden’s negligence.
Members of Angle Families joined Gov. DeSantis during the presser; these are families who lost loved ones directly at the hands of aliens who entered the country illegally.
Besides accurately calling the new Biden orders a “reckless policy” and a “disregard for public safety and the rule of law,” the Gov. added - “These are convicted felons who are here illegally. If you can’t remove them, then what do you have? Just a complete lawless system and a complete open border?”
Governor DeSantis also mandated monthly updates from FDLE on all criminal illegal aliens who have had their ICE detainer lifted under Biden, including when their Florida prison terms are up and any subsequent crimes committed by the criminal aliens.
This news comes after the Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed a lawsuit against the Biden Admin.’s sanctuary country directives. A.G. Moody detailed how the Biden rules have benefited criminal aliens convicted of burglary, cocaine trafficking, grand theft auto, heroin trafficking, credit card fraud, and money laundering, allowing them to be released back into Florida communities rather than being deported.
“If ICE is not willing to take custody and remove and ICE wants them released into our society, then any additional crime that is committed is, by definition, one that should have been prevented,” DeSantis concluded.
