Psaki Busted by Doocy Again, Confirms Biden to Drastically Limit ICE Deportations, Even Dem Blasts Them on It

Prepare to be less safe. You knew it was coming with Joe Biden and you were right.

As we previously wrote, Biden was trying to stop deportations for 100 days except for national security threats. That is already causing a massive influx at the border that President Donald Trump had greatly cured with his immigration effort. But a judge slapped down Biden’s effort, handing him his first official court loss.

Additionally, according to Homeland Security, there’s a policy change coming that indicates ICE agents would cease to pursue deportations against those convicted of virtually all offenses that were not for national security threats or serious aggravated felonies. So deportations would cease for drugs, DUIs, drunk driving, low-level assaulters, fraudsters and thieves, and a host of other charges, according to a memo obtained by the Washington Post and a report from the Texas Tribune. Moreover, ICE agents said it would weaken ICE’s discretion and their ability to arrest wanted illegal aliens at correctional facilities.

Jen Psaki basically confirmed that when asked by Peter Doocy during the briefing today, although she tried to spin it as “prioritizing national security threats.” As we previously reported, she also got busted by Doocy over where the folks who lost their jobs were going to go to get new jobs.

She never did end up giving him an answer to his question of how these new guidelines are in the interest of public safety instead of in the interest of illegal aliens.

One unnamed official told the WaPo that, “They’ve abolished ICE without abolishing ICE.”

Members of Congress including at least one Democrat are not happy with Biden’s actions.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) expressed opposition to the policy, saying he supported ICE and this was not the right policy.

Former Acting ICE Director Ron Vitiello, who held positions in both the Obama and the Trump administration and rose through the professional ranks of the Border Patrol, decried Biden’s moves.
