Maryland Sheriff Claims Biden Has Abolished ICE, Making Immigrant Communities Much less Protected
A Maryland sheriff believes Americans and immigrant communities under the Biden administration will not be safe because of the president’s immigration policies.
Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins appeared on Fox and Friends Monday and said Americans should be “outraged” by Biden’s immigration campaigns, arguing that the Biden government dismantled the agency by “basically telling the agents.” have, they should resign “.
“These kinds of laws lead to more victims of crime, more violent crime [and] Gangs infiltrating this country, ”Jenkins told Fox & Friends on Monday.
Jenkins made the comments in response to a Washington Post story that reported that the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents under the Biden administration will no longer attempt to deport immigrants for crimes such as driving under the influence and assault Instead, it will focus on national security threats, recent cross-border commuters and those completing prison sentences for increased criminal convictions.
According to the Post, ICE agents have expressed frustration with the agency’s new guidelines. Many believe this will severely limit the agency’s ability to arrest and deport criminals.
On the same day that it was inaugurated, Biden signed a number of executive orders, including several dealing with ICE and immigration. Orders include setting up a task force to reunite children separated from their families at the border and assisting Central and South American countries to slow the migration of immigrants.
Biden also ordered ICE to suspend deportations for 100 days from February 1st. However, a Texas judge stopped the Biden order, and as a result, ICE deported hundreds of Haitians and Jamaicans.
Due to new orders, the agency will conduct fewer arrests and deportations while allocating resources for national security, sex trafficking, gangs, offenders and newcomers.
When asked why he believes Biden is taking these measures, Jenkins told Fox and Friends that he believed Biden’s administration was “angry” with former President Donald Trump.
“All the steps he has taken in the past four years to enforce immigration laws are being completely reversed and dismantled,” Jenkins said.
