“An email that was written by Tim Perry, chief of staff at ICE, to leadership at the agency was leaked on Feb. 12.
I’ve seen the email. It gave instructions to ICE leadership that included what Perry called DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ “vision.” The 19 bullet points contained in the email are self-explanatory. However, let me summarize them.
The current leadership of ICE is actively planning for an out-of-control situation at the border and already calling it a “surge.”
There are instructions to leaders to spend whatever money is needed to transport those who cross into the U.S. illegally into the interior of the country and release them as soon as possible.
They are instructed to end contracts for detention that actually have detention standards and try to contract with Target to get detention capacity at man camps that are typically used to house oil field workers and have no ICE detention standards at all.
Perry also instructs the leadership team that sworn officers and fences are to be avoided. After all, we can’t have anything that look like it is an enforcement operation because the progressives think that is bad.
The leadership team instructs that they want social services and mass release on ATD (Alternatives to Detention), even though the ICE website clearly shows about one-third of the people on ATD quickly abscond and only about 3% of people actually deported are on ATD. That’s because it takes three to seven years to deport someone who is not in custody.
They want everyone released despite the fact that the DOJ website says that eight or nine out of 10 Central Americans will not get asylum relief awarded by the courts because they don’t qualify or don’t show up in court.
They are also ignoring the fact, based on the DHS immigration lifecycle report, that less than 2% of family units that have been ordered removed since FY12, which is a few hundred thousand, actually left as ordered by a federal judge.
What happens to them now?
They will all get amnesty based on the new Biden amnesty bill despite the fact they entered the country illegally, lost their case, were order removed and became fugitives. Under the current administration, what is the punishment for ignoring a judge’s order and becoming a fugitive? Amnesty.
Yes, this email is all about processing people as quickly as possible and releasing them into the interior of the United States.
The email was all about assisting those who will commit immigration fraud and defy a court order.
This is about the U.S. government completing the criminal conspiracy of smuggling by delivering children to those who conspire with criminal cartels to have their children smuggled here – which is a felony. ”
Comment: Years ago I was at at a luncheon meeting of some do-gooder group here in Washington. It was probably at the old Washington Hotel across from the Treasury. The Mexican ambassador to the US was the speaker of the moment. He was treated much as though it was to be expected that when his time in DC was ended he would probably settle down somewhere in the US to open a taqueria or some such thing. At some point in his discourse he said of the southwest US “don’t worry about that area, we are going to take it back “by inundation.” The audience laughed but the look in his eye was clear. This was not a joke.
IMO the Biden Administration does not intend to defend the southern border. Latino activists and Globalists generally want to see the borders of the US disintegrate for interlocked reasons. One is the simple goal of reconquista A drive for tierra y libertad. Hey, we took it from them and they feel deep in their guts that at least the SW should be Latinoland. The second reason is simply part of the softening up process leading to the reduction of the US to a building block in the process of “globalization.” pl
