Chris “Badger” Thomas AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –
New York City police ignored all 1,526 requests from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain undocumented immigrants for up to 48 hours last year, a top NYPD official said Wednesday, Fox News reports.
The Daily News reported that Oleg Chernyavsky, the NYPD’s legislative affairs director, revealed the numbers at a City Council meeting.
The number of requests for 2017 was nearly 20 times higher than the 80 the department received over the previous year. Chernyavsky said the department responded to just two of ICE’s 2016 requests because those immigrants had federal arrest warrants.
Under New York City law, prisoners can only be handed over to ICE if they’ve been convicted of 170 crimes and federal officials present a warrant.
At a city council meeting the NYPD’s legislative affairs director, Chernyavsky, released the information to the public.
“New York police response to ICE requests speaks volumes to our intent as a city. … It’s important for victims of crimes, irrespective of their immigration status, to trust their police and to come forward and inform their police.”
An official for the Mayors office claims that ICE wants to arrest “just anyone” regardless if they have committed a crime.
“The people they’re seeking are essentially anybody, regardless of the nature of the crime.”
Last I checked, under FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAW, being in the United States illegally is a crime and is supposed to be enforced by all law enforcement agencies, not just ICE.
ICE responded by slamming New York City law enforcement in a series of tweets while the council meeting was taking place.
“ICE recently arrested 9 in New York who were illegally in the U.S. All were released from NYPD custody with active detainers in place, and had pending criminal charges.”
“ICE Field Office Director Thomas Decker: “The release of criminal aliens back on New York City streets continues to pose a dangerous risk to our communities. As Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan has made clear, ICE will continue to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests to ensure the safety of the law-abiding citizens of these communities. ”
In a world where terrorism and bombings take innocent lives, ICE targets not just illegal aliens in the United States, they are part of counter terrorism and Homeland Security.
According to the ICE.gov:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees protect America from the cross-border crime and illegal immigration that threaten national security and public safety. To carry out our mission, ICE focuses on legal and safe immigration enforcement, terrorism prevention and combating transnational criminal threats.
In addition to core law enforcement occupations, there are also a wide range of professional and administration functions that support the ICE mission. Career paths in management, information technology, law, mission support, public affairs and community outreach are available within the agency.
People constantly ask what they can do to make a difference, my response is always the same, Lace Up.
I know not everyone is capable of becoming an ICE agent, to those, I say find what you can do in your communities to educate your neighbors on the illegal aliens and gang activities in your city and create a neighborhood watch to protect your community.
As AFF News previously reported, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Department of Justice as well as other law enforcement agencies were at a round table meeting hosted by President Trump, the national security meeting was over MS-13 gang members and their infestation in America.
“I’m going to go through hell to get this stuff approved,” Trump said. “We have no choice.”
We as citizens of the United States need to become more active in not just the policies of our borders but the protection of our communities, cities, counties, states and our borders.
President Trump is battling congress to put America first, it is time the citizens do the same.
“We have proposed new legislation that will fix our immigration laws, and support our ICE and Border Patrol Agents, so that this cannot ever happen again.” ~ President Trump
