ICE Cancels Raid to Arrest Illegal Alien Sex Offenders Amid Biden Policies
Large raid, that involved thousands of hours of preparation, aborted
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has canceled a long-planned multi-state raid to arrest convicted illegal alien sex offenders.
Operation Talon, a large raid that involved thousands of hours of preparation by agents to catch targets and obtain warrants, was aborted at the last minute.
According to a source familiar with the operation, ICE agents canceled the raid the night before the procedure was due to take place.
According to the Washington Post, senior ICE officials said Joe Biden’s administration “had nothing to do with that decision.”
But the decision to halt the raid still coincides with Biden's recent policies to "stop all removals" of illegal aliens, including land and air deportations.
The decision to halt raids is typically down to top ICE officials and in coordination with senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials.
The Biden administration's recent moves to take power away from interior immigration enforcement is also making it harder for ICE to do their jobs.
Biden policies are also resulting in the restarting of the Catch and Release program, a process where illegal aliens are freed into the U.S. interior after being apprehended.
Last month ICE official wrote to staff in the memo telling them to release “Release them all, immediately," referring to apprehended illegal aliens.
Joe Biden issued a "pause" for 100 days on all deportations of illegal immigrants within 24 hours of him being 'sworn in.'

A review of immigration enforcement policies was signed by Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary David Pekoske in a memorandum.
But he 100-day pause was later blocked by a Texas federal judge.
Texas filed a lawsuit against a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo that instructed immigration agencies to pause most deportations.
The Biden administration had failed “to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations,” Tipton said while issuing his verdict.
The order represents a victory for Texas' Republican leaders, who often sued to stop programs enacted by Biden's Democratic predecessor, President Barack Obama.
