Florida Says Biden Team Refusing to Detain Migrant Criminals Who Were Incarcerated – Makes Us “All Less Safe”
The state of Florida is suing the Biden Administration for its failure to take custody of people who have served jail sentences for burglary, drug trafficking and other crimes.
Attorney General Ashley Moody said Tuesday that President Biden’s reversal of immigration policies are making the people in her state less state. “Convicted criminals that would have been deported under past administrations, including President Trump, even President Obama, are now walking free in Florida. These policy reversals make us all less safe.”
Florida is the second state to file a complaint. Last month, the state of Arizona filed a suit in an effort to stop Biden’s reversal of immigration policy. Montana joined Arizona’s suit on Tuesday.
Florida alleges that new guidelines for ICE limit the ability for ICE to pursue anyone who isn’t a suspected spy, terrorist, aggravated felon. According to Florida, criminals–including those that have done time for drug trafficking and burglary–are not to be pursued by ICE under Biden’s policies. This reversal in policy, Moody insists, negatively impacts the residents of her state.
Meanwhile, many on the left are advocating for the abolishment of ICE all together.
