Calif. Court Orders ICE to Free Criminal Illegals Because of COVID

'The public should know that the ruling undoubtedly places them at greater risk...'

The Central District Court of California ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release 250 criminal illegal aliens because of the coronavirus, according to a press release.

Judge Terry Hatter said in his decision that ICE could either release the criminal illegal aliens or deport them, Fox News reported.

It’s unclear why the agency did not deport them.

Immigration officials announced Tuesday that the Adelanto ICE Processing Center released 250 illegal aliens to reduce the inmane population to 465.

The illegal aliens were freed despite charges or convictions for “assault with a deadly weapon, battery, child cruelty, contempt/violating a protected order, domestic violence, disorderly conduct, driving without a license, driving under the influence, false imprisonment, fraud, hit and run, grand theft, obstructing a police officer, possession of a controlled substance, prostitution, sexual offenses (including lewd/lascivious acts with a child), weapons violations, and illegal reentry after removal.”

Tony H. Pham, ICE’s Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director, said the court’s decision puts citizens at risk.

“While opponents who continuously seek to discredit the agency might otherwise mislead the public to believe that those in detention pose no risk to public safety, nothing could be further from the truth,” he said.

Hatter devalued public safety to supposedly protect illegal aliens from a virus that presents virtually no risk to the vast majority of the population.

“ICE has complied with this overreaching court order; however, the public should know that the ruling undoubtedly places them at greater risk,” Pham said.

Far-left states like California and New York have been quick to free inmates this year, using the coronavirus as a pretext to serve their long-term goal of creating a dangerous society without bail, prisons, or law enforcement.

Many inmates immediately returned to crime after their release, the New York Post reported.
