On his program Thursday night, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson reported on a bombshell development with regards to the Biden administration’s policies on immigration. According to Carlson and independently verified by Breitbart News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have been instructed to immediately set free any and all illegal aliens in their custody. The move, which is part and parcel with Biden’s 100-day freeze on all deportations, presages what is assumed will be a devastating reversal of Trump’s immigration efforts.
From Fox News:
On Joe Biden’s first day in office, the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping directive calling for a 100-day pause in deportations.
“Tucker Carlson Tonight” has since obtained an internal email sent Thursday to ICE officers in Texas that shows how the order was enacted.
“As of midnight tonight, stop all removals,” the email reads. “This includes Mexican bus runs, charter flights and commercial removals (until further notice) … all cases are to be considered [no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future].”
The email goes on to say: “Release them all, immediately. No sponsor available is not acceptable any longer.”
The official who sent the email noted that he was just “the messenger” explaining the directive. In other words, It wasn’t his idea. It was Joe Biden’s.
If the Biden administration were to actually go through with this initiative, it would involve putting more than 14,000 detainees onto the streets, the vast majority of whom are either convicted criminals or have pending prosecutions. However, according to further investigation done by the staff at Carlson’s show, it does not appear that Biden is going to make such an absurd blunder.
“The memorandum from the Biden administration to halt deportations did not call for people here illegally to be released from detention. So we made some calls, and we learned that the Department of Homeland Security is currently hammering out how to enact the memorandum. It does not specifically call for the instant release of all migrants in detention,” Carlson said. “So what was this memo about? Just the result of the complete chaos that resulted when the incoming administration changed a policy this big on its first day without explaining what it means.”
Remember when Trump signed that first travel ban and there was all that chaos at the airports? The president was raked over the coals for that. Strangely enough, outside of Breitbart and Carlson’s show, we don’t see a whisper about this botched order in the media.
Regardless of whether Biden were to release all detained illegals, his immigration policies will be plenty destructive. And many of them – mass amnesty, for instance – will have dire ramifications for the U.S. that will last generations.
If not forever.
