New Data Reveal Biden’s DHS is Forcing Sheriffs to Release Countless Criminal Aliens

By Jon Feere on February 14, 2022

The dangers of the Biden administration’s handling of immigration law enforcement continue to be revealed, and the latest evidence is found in new 287(g) data posted on ICE.gov. The 287(g) program allows sheriff’s departments to enter into partnerships with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and receive training on how to identify illegal aliens within state and local jails. The program is a critical law enforcement tool because local law enforcement routinely jails illegal aliens but may not be aware of an individual’s immigration status without access to 287(g) training and systems. The program has resulted in thousands of criminal aliens being transferred to ICE custody.

Despite the significant public safety benefits of the 287(g) program, the Biden administration does not support it. In 2021, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas canceled a successful 287(g) agreement with the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office in Massachusetts, which had facilitated the identification of illegal aliens arrested for child rape, assault, strangulation, arson, attempted murder, armed carjacking, breaking and entering, and identity theft, to name a few crimes. Criminal aliens with these backgrounds are no longer being identified by that sheriff’s office, which means violent offenders are being released back into our communities where they will almost inevitably cause more harm.

Sheriffs across the nation have been reporting to the Center for Immigration Studies that the Biden administration has been refusing to take custody of most criminal aliens identified through 287(g), forcing sheriffs to release countless criminal aliens back onto the streets. Now, new numbers for Fiscal Year 2021 reveal that the Biden administration’s immigration policies have resulted in fewer dangerous criminal aliens being taken into ICE custody via 287(g) than in Fiscal Year 2020.

New language on the 287(g) webpage on ICE.gov reads:

In fiscal year (FY) 2021, the 287(g) Program encountered approximately 394 noncitizens convicted for assault, 646 convicted for dangerous drugs, 74 convicted for sex offenses/assaults, 53 convicted for obstructing police, 91 convicted for weapon offenses, and 21 convicted for homicide.

Previously, the same section read:

In fiscal year (FY) 2020, the 287(g) Program encountered approximately 920 noncitizens convicted for assault, 1,261 convicted for dangerous drugs, 104 convicted for sex offenses/assaults, 377 convicted for obstructing police, 190 convicted for weapon offenses, and 37 convicted for homicide.

This represents a large reduction in transfers to ICE custody in all criminal categories reported. It is a significant admission from the Biden administration because it illustrates that its argument for narrowing the ability of ICE to enforce federal law — namely, that Mayorkas’s enforcement guidelines are meant to result in increased arrests of the most violent criminal aliens — is not supported by the facts.

But the numbers are actually much worse for the Biden administration than they look. Almost four months of Fiscal Year 2021 were under the Trump administration when DHS leadership supported the 287(g) program, meaning a significant portion of the 287(g) arrests reported for that fiscal year did not occur under the Biden administration. It’s entirely possible that around half of these arrests occurred under the Trump administration.

Even assuming that the distribution of 287(g) arrests reported on ICE.gov occurred equally across all 12 months of FY21, it would mean that between February 1, 2021, and September 30, 2021, the Biden administration only took custody of about 263 illegal aliens convicted for assault, 431 convicted for dangerous drugs, 49 convicted for sex offenses/assaults, 35 convicted for obstructing police, 61 convicted for weapon offenses, and 14 convicted for homicide.

The Biden administration’s enforcement policies are a threat to public safety. From FY20 to FY21, there was a 57 percent decrease in the number of aliens convicted for assault who were taken into custody by ICE via 287(g); a 52 percent decrease in ICE arrests of aliens convicted for weapons offenses; a 49 percent decrease in arrests of aliens convicted for dangerous drugs; a 43 percent decrease in arrests of aliens convicted for homicide; and a 29 percent decrease in arrests of aliens convicted for sex crimes. The largest decrease in arrests was of aliens convicted for obstructing police, an 86 percent decline. The decision of the Biden administration to not take aliens convicted for this crime into ICE custody is consistent with the administration’s general lack of support for law enforcement.

If the Biden administration were more transparent about the results of its immigration policies, a more accurate analysis would be possible. But the Biden administration has cut back on transparency because the political leadership has likely concluded there is no way to put a positive light on the results of its dangerous policies.

BLM to Decimate More Wyoming Wild Horse Herds: Petition Act Now

BLM to Decimate More Wyoming Wild Horse Herds: Act Now

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently released a plan for a mass roundup/removal in the North Lander Complex in Wyoming and we need you to act.

The North Lander Complex is comprised of four Herd Management Areas (Conant Creek, Disphan Butte, Muskrat Basin and Rock Creek Mountain) spanning 375,000 acres of public land where the BLM intends to:  

  • Drastically reduce the wild horse poupopulation from approximately 2,000 to just 320 wild horses;
  • Castrate 95% or more of the stallions that will be captured and returned to the range;
  • Insert unproven Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) in a portion of mares to be returned to the range and administer the experimental fertility control vaccine GonaCon to all mares to be released (including those who receive the IUDs);
  • Skew the sex ratio to 60/40 in favor of stallions. 

The plan threatens the wild, free-roaming nature and long-term sustainability of this iconic Wyoming wild mustang herd. Please take one moment to add your name to AWHC’s comments on the Environmental Assessment that analyzes the impacts of the plan.

LETTER

I strongly oppose the Bureau of Land Management’s plan to decimate the wild horse populations in the North Lander Complex in Wyoming, which is comprised of the Conant Creek, Dishpan Butte, Muskrat Basin and Rock Creek Mountain Herd Management Areas (HMAs.  

The Environmental Assessment is inadequate because: 

  • The allocation of resources within this complex is inequitable, favoring livestock. At the low end of the BLM’s wild horse population limit, the agency allocates 13 times more forage to privately-owned livestock instead of federally-protected wild horses. The impacts of this preferential treatment of livestock on wild horses and on American Taxpayers have not been analyzed in the EA. 
  • The impacts of cattle grazing on the environment within the Complex have not been evaluated, particularly with regard to spring grazing. The presence of livestock during this senstive new growth season on the land and the wild horse population must be fully analyzed. The EA must include actual range data distinguishing the impacts of wild horses from those of cattle in this analysis.
  • The following recommendations of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), which conducted a 1.5-year long review of the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program regarding castration and IUD’s have not been considered:
    •  “[S]ome or total loss of sex drive would be likely in castrated stallions, and this is counter to the often-stated public interest in maintaining natural behaviors in free-ranging horses [..]”
    • A potential disadvantage of both surgical and chemical castration is loss of testosterone and consequent reduction in or complete loss of male-type behaviors necessary for maintenance of social organization, band integrity, and expression of a natural behavior repertoire.”
    • “IUDs may provoke undue uterine inflammation warrants caution and would require further testing before application in the field could be considered. In addition, evidence concerning loss rates of IUDs, especially during copulation, would be needed.” 
  • It does not acknowledge or analyze outstanding questions about the reversibility, impacts and  efficacy of using GonaCon due to lack of research and limited use in wild horses. More research on the effects of GonaCon on wild horses is necessary before use of this vaccine as routine management tool.

The BLM must revise the North Lander Compelx plan to: 

  • Adjust livestock use in the Complex in order to give wild horses  an equitable share of resources and allow for a larger, genetically healthy and sustainable wild horse population.
  • Abandon plans to implement surgical sterilization of stallions returned to the range. The impacts of gelding on stallions can be affect their physiology and behavior and affect both herd dynamics and the habitat. Further, it is not an effective population management tool, as a small number of intact stallions can impregnate a large number of mares. 
  • Eliminate the use of IUDs as more research on the safety of this method for wild and free-roaming mares and their welfare is necessary before this option would be appropriate for broad use as a management tool. 
  • Eliminate the use of GonCon for wild mares as use of this vaccine in wild horses is limited, as is research into its impacts and long-term effects. More research on IUD’s in wild horses is necessary before this vaccine would be appropriate for broad use as a management tool.
  • Incorporate use of the PZP fertility control vaccine, which was recommended for use by the National Academy of Sciences, where necessary within the Complex to stabilize wild herds at sustainable levels. 
  • Abandon plans to skew the sex ratios this method is not scientifically supported and not effective in reducing population growth rates in wild horse populations. The BLM has rejected this alternative in herd management plans for other areas, and should do the same in the North Land Complex.

As an American taxpayer and citizen who expects the federal government to protect and humanely manage America’s iconic wild horses and burros, I urge you to seriously consider these comments.

Sign the petition to Congress and President Biden: Economic and humanitarian relief for Afghans

Paper to Use

via –Afghanistan is currently facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis and the US is helping drive its economic collapse.

Sign this petition to Congress and President Biden and ask for economic and humanitarian relief for Afghans.

The economic fallout has been dire, as would happen to any country that loses access to its own capital. U.S. sanctions have worsened the economic situation, andthe Biden administration is urging European allies and multilateral institutions to aid in starving the nation of capital.Afghanistan’s central bank has been in touch with foreign entities to help assist with access to paper currency, but they have declined, citing fears of U.S. sanctions.

If the U.S. and its alliescontinuedown this path, nearly every Afghan citizen could be living in poverty by mid-2022.The UNandhumanitarian agencies like theRed Crosshave said they are “livid” and “terrified” and are urging…
