Sheriff Warns 'Americans No Longer Safe' Under Biden's 'Lawless' Immigration Policies
Maryland's Sheriff Chuck Jenkins issues warning of the threat new rules pose
A Maryland sheriff has issued a warning to the American people, asserting that America "will not be safe" under Joe Biden's new immigration policies.
Speaking during an interview Monday on Fox News, Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins warned about the threat that Biden's policy changes pose.
“Americans should be angry and outraged,” Sheriff Jenkins told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy.
“What he’s done is effectively and functionally dismantled ICE, basically telling the agents to stand down,” Jenkins explained.
He was referring to the new guidelines set out by the Biden administration that require Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to make fewer arrests and deportations regardless of the immigrant’s criminal background.
“There will be no enforcement,” Jenkins said.
Under these new rules, immigrants will no longer be deported if they get a DUI or commit fraud, tax crimes, or assault, as Neon Nettle previously reported.
This policy is intended to enable immigrants to submit filings to immigration officials without the fear of deportation.
Additionally, officers will need approval from the ICE director in Washington, D.C., before making an arrest, according to Fox News.
“These people are going to roam our streets with impunity,” Jenkins said.
“This is going to be disastrous, dangerous, gonna impact every county, every city, every community in this country and again, this is total lawlessness,” he said.
“We have to have interior enforcement along with strong border security or we have no laws.”
The Texas state government filed a lawsuit Friday over these new rules, according to The Washington Post.
Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar told Fox News’ “America’s News HQ” on Sunday that he had called the White House addressing concerns about the policy.
“Americans will not be safe, immigrant communities will not be safe,” Jenkins said.
“These types of laws lead to more victims of crime, more violent crime, gangs infiltrating this country,” he said.
