(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon, one of George Soros’s leftist reform puppets, recently implemented a policy that would force a prosecutor to weigh the immigration status of a suspect before issuing charges.
Gascon, who received $2.25 million from the oligarch Soros during his campaign, wants to prevent the deportation of illegal immigrant crime suspects, according to the Daily Caller. Gascon was already under fire for not doing his job — stopping the crime — which resulted in people trying to recall the corrupt government official. The attempt was unsuccessful, but tainted by recall signatures being discarded for minor technical reasons.
“Whether it’s the Biden administration or radical open-borders advocates in states like California, they all have one thing in common—they are choosing not to enforce immigration law and deport those here illegally,” Tom Homan, a former acting ICE director and current visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said in a statement.
“In Gascon’s case, it’s even worse, because these are illegal aliens who have committed crimes, often against American citizens, in addition to breaking the law by remaining here illegally.”
“The more we see these types of policies implemented by radical open-borders advocates, the more crime will go up, and the worse our border crisis will get—because these individuals know they won’t be deported,” Homan added.
If they are charged with crimes, the new policy forces prosecutors to protect illegal immigrant suspects from “adverse immigration consequences.”
“All charging determinations shall be undertaken with the goal of avoiding or mitigating the adverse immigration consequences of a decision when known, possible pr permitting,” according to the policy.
“Under these circumstances and when consistent with public safety alternatives to filing charges exist, those alternatives shall be pursued.”
In the fiscal year 2022, Customs and Border Protection encountered more than 2.3 million criminals who crossed the border illegally. In October alone, it was more than 230,000 people. Between Oct. 2021 and Oct. 2022, federal border authorities also apprehended more than 800 individuals with gang ties.
“The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office consulted with our staff, community stakeholders and immigration experts to craft a comprehensive Immigration policy that protects vulnerable victims and prioritizes safety while attempting to avoid overly punitive consequences for the accused,” Tiffany Blackwell, communications director for Gascon’s office, said.
“We believe that we have achieved that result. We will continue to rely upon our staff to provide us with relevant information that will assist in making the determination if alternative sentencing is warranted.”
