Biden's New Orders Allow Illegal Aliens to Avoid Arrest by ICE Agents
Biden's 'sanctuary country' orders give illegal immigrants more options
Joe Biden's expansion of his breakdown of interior immigration enforcement, or “sanctuary country” orders, gives illegal aliens more options to avoid being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.
ICE officials told Congress they would open an “ICE Case Review” process, which would allow illegal aliens to challenge their arrest and detainment.

Biden's sanctuary country orders whereby about nine-in-ten illegal aliens who would usually be arrested by ICE and deported can now avoid arrest and deportation until they are found to be a national security threat or convicted of an aggravated felony.
Illegal aliens can challenge their arrest and detainment if they believe they do not meet the convicted aggravated felon, gang member, terrorist, or national security threat standards.
Under the new process, illegal aliens arrested and detained by ICE can now contest their arrests through this additional route.
“It’s as if the Biden people are more intent on reversing every single immigration enforcement action that the Trump administration took, no matter how appropriate or routine, and no matter the cost to taxpayers nor how illogical to reverse it,” the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News.
“It’s an insult to legal immigrants,” Vaughan said.
In January, ICE agents were ordered to free all detainees in their custody after Biden halted deportations for 100 days.
According to an internal ICE memo, ICE agents were ordered to “stop all removals,” including land and air deportations.
Earlier this month, Arizona Sheriff Mark Dannels said there had been an explosion in immigrant-related crimes at the border.
Sheriff Dannels said that vehicle pursuits of suspected human smugglers are becoming more common in Cochise County, Arizona.
Dannels is tasked with tracking illegal border crossings using an extensive hidden trail camera operation that spans 83 miles of shared border with Mexico.
The camera footage showed 1,200 illegal entries in August 2020, but by the end of the year, it had doubled to 2,500.
“That’s what scares me about this whole thing,” he told The Epoch Times.
“Though I believe politics has no business in policing, it sure has an effect on the border.”
“We had a president that was very tough on the border, nobody would question that."

"And now we’ve got a president who’s going to do just the opposite,” he said.
