Biden-Appointed Activists are Destroying ICE

By Victor Winston, updated on October 25, 2023

Recent developments suggest that the Biden administration's approach to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is causing internal challenges, with some believing the agency's core mission is being undermined.

Tom Homan, who dedicated his life to ICE, has expressed concerns about the agency's current direction. He praises the officers for their dedication to enforcing America's laws.

However, he feels that the management in Washington is more focused on changing the agency's core mission.

There's a growing sentiment that groups advocating for the abolition of ICE have gained significant influence within the agency. This shift in power dynamics is believed to be transforming ICE from a law enforcement agency to more of a "catch-and-release" organization.

One of the major concerns is the decline in monitoring illegal aliens to ensure compliance with final orders. This practice has seen a significant drop under the current Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Record-Breaking Immigration Numbers

In just the month of August, over 300,000 immigrants crossed the Southwest border. This number is the highest monthly total in U.S. history.

Furthermore, 80% of these immigrants, once released into the country by the Biden administration, weren't provided with a court summons. They were merely instructed to check in with ICE within 60 days. Predictably, almost half of them didn't comply.

Despite the influx of illegal immigrants since Biden took office, there's been a 72% reduction in the use of GPS monitoring compared to the previous administration. Instead of effective tracking methods, the focus has shifted toward providing welfare programs.

One such program, the Case Management Pilot Program (CMPP), is overseen by a group advocating for the abolition of ICE. This shift in policy and approach is seen by many as a deliberate effort by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to legalize illegal immigration.

Decline in Interior Immigration Enforcement

Arrests by ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) have halved during Biden's first year. The use of detainers to take custody of illegal immigrants arrested by local law enforcement has also seen a sharp decline.

These policies, while fulfilling Biden's campaign promises, have raised safety concerns among many, Breitbart reported.

The Biden administration's alignment with the radical left-wing open borders movement is evident in its policies and appointments.

Claire Trickler-McNulty, the assistant director at ICE, is a notable figure in this context. Reports suggest that she has been instrumental in shifting the agency's focus from compliance and tracking to welfare programs.

Furthermore, Trickler-McNulty is believed to be behind the push to close immigration detention facilities. She has also been given unprecedented power over enforcement contracts, which she has used to align the agency's mission with NGO-delivered welfare services.

Concerns Over Contracts and Accountability

In 2022, a report by ICE's Inspector General highlighted an $87 million no-bid contract awarded to Endeavors, an NGO with no prior experience in the required services.

This contract was overseen by Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, a former ICE official and close associate of Trickler-McNulty.

Such policies, driven by individuals like Trickler-McNulty, are seen as unsustainable by many. The global influx towards the U.S. southern border is a testament to the perception that entering the U.S. now comes with minimal consequences.

With borders seemingly collapsing and sovereignty under attack, there's a growing call for accountability. It's time for those in power to address these concerns and ensure the safety and security of the American people.

Conclusion

  • ICE's core mission appears to be under internal threat.
  • Record-breaking immigration numbers raise concerns about policy effectiveness.
  • Shift in focus from enforcement to welfare programs is evident.
  • Contracts and appointments raise questions about transparency and accountability.
  • There's a growing call for a review of policies and their impact on national security.
