We are sure you agree with ACRU that ICE agents are tireless heroes defending our border, citizens and legal residents from illegal aliens, particularly, criminal illegal aliens. Despite this, ICE is endlessly vilified in the liberal press. During the COVID-19 crisis, and as of this writing, ICE has stepped up and flown 466+ U.S. citizens back to safety from South America. ICE agents, you are the good guys, and we salute you.
New York City's unlawful and dangerous sanctuary city policy and refusal to cooperate with ICE detainers continues to collect victims. The latest list of crimes by criminal illegal aliens called out by ICE include a 92 year old woman raped and murdered on the street. Also, nine (alleged) criminal most recently released by Mayor de Blasio and his fellow liberals have a laundry list of crimes including: robbery, assault, harassment, weapons charges, assault with a vehicle and resisting arrest. These are just a few of the violent illegal aliens let loose on the legal residents of New York City. As with the Chicago story above, NYC's corrupt political class is turning its citizens into victims. Until they vote these irresponsible officials out of office they are all going to be at serious physical risk.

Chicago is refusing not just to honor ICE detainers, but also refusing access to its criminal database. Chicago's corrupt political class is turning its citizens

1/25: The battle occurring in Congress over providing amnesty, citizenship and government benefits to illegal aliens often boils down to well-worn talking points.
Illegal aliens are ignoring immigration court orders to appear without fear of repercussion, leaving them free to run and disappear into the interior of the country.
This ill-considered action will endanger the safety of the law-abiding residents of the state. It is an irresponsible policy.
