Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says President Joe Biden’s national immigration agenda centers around “justice and equity” for illegal aliens living in the United States.
While speaking at the annual U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. this week, Mayorkas bragged about imposing so-called “sanctuary country” orders that prevent the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency from arresting and deporting most of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens.
As intended, Mayorkas said the orders ensure that illegal aliens are shielded from federal immigration law as “a matter of justice and equity” — a fixture of the Biden agenda.
Throughout the last year, the orders successfully freed into the U.S. illegal aliens accused and convicted of child sex crimes, armed robbery, drunk driving, burglary, cocaine trafficking, grand theft auto, heroin trafficking, credit card fraud, money laundering, and other crimes.
Mayorkas told the mayors that their sanctuary city policies were no longer necessary because ICE agents are barred from “indiscriminate enforcement” of federal immigration law under the orders.
