The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is urging the Biden administration to shut down nearly all detention of illegal aliens, a plan that would free 30,000 detainees into American cities and towns, according to Breitbart News.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the left-wing ACLU issued a policy brief that asks the Biden administration to end the 287(g) program which allows the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to work directly with towns and cities to help swiftly turn over criminal illegal aliens.
“Rather than providing any proven law enforcement benefit, these ICE-law enforcement collaboration programs have resulted in racial profiling: Local police are emboldened to stop, arrest, and bring low-level charges against people who ‘look’ like immigrants, with the actual aim of helping ICE deport them,” the ACLU brief states falsely.
In addition, the ACLU is urging Biden to eliminate most immigration detention centers across the U.S. that are contracted by ICE. Such a plan would free roughly 30,000 illegal alien detainees into American cities and towns. Nearly 9,000 of those are convicted criminals or have pending criminal charges against them.
