By now, I am sure you have heard about President Biden’s 100-day moratorium on all deportations of illegal aliens. However, have you heard that there was no exception in the order for aliens who have been convicted of violent crimes? Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Thom Tillis of North Carolina spearheaded a letter from Republican senators to Biden’s new DHS secretary pointing out this worrying oversight.
The anti-border forces of the left hinge their whole argument on the phony platitude of innocent families looking for a better life in America. The letter from Grassley and Tillis shred this illusion by pointing out how “92% of ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations’ (ERO) interior removals from the United States in FY2020 had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.” They write that given this key fact, “failure to exempt all criminal aliens from the deportation moratorium seems particularly egregious.”
Senators Grassley and Tillis hit the nail on the head. If Democrats really wanted what is best for America, they would not rest until all criminal aliens are sent back wherever they came from. Instead, the Biden Administration put up a giant neon sign in the sky letting the world’s criminals know that assault, robbery, murder, rape, and molestation are not deportable offenses in the United States. He has even stopped work on the border wall to ensure that the most depraved offenders have no trouble setting up shop in your neighborhood.
We have seen this time and time again from the Biden Administration. One side of his mouth preaches unity and togetherness, but the other preaches unrelenting uniformity to the farthest left dogma. To be clear, Biden’s moratorium was implemented on his first full day in office without ever once reaching out for Republicans’ input. He could have easily added an exception to the moratorium for violent criminals, but he chose not to do that. He does not care about helping struggling families from Central America. He is making a power play to expand the Democrat Party’s voter base. America has no responsibility to serve as a repository for the world’s criminals.
