Mayorkas: Sanctuary Country Orders Ensure ‘Majority’ of Illegal Aliens Not Deported

December 1, 2021

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, open-borders enthusiast Alejandro Mayorkas, announced on Monday that the agency’s new so-called “sanctuary country” orders will ensure that the “majority” of illegal aliens living in the United States are not deported.

“Today is an important step forward in ensuring that our workforce is empowered to exercise its prosecutorial discretion and focus its enforcement efforts on those who pose a threat to our national security, public safety, and border security,” Mayorkas said. “DHS will carry out our mission to safeguard our country justly and humanely. In making our enforcement decisions, we will focus our efforts on the greatest threats while also recognizing that the majority of undocumented noncitizens, who have been here for many years and who have contributed positively to our country’s well-being, are not priorities for removal.”

In February, DHS officials issued initial orders that prevented ICE agents from arresting and deporting criminal illegal aliens unless they had been recently convicted of an aggravated felony or had been identified as a known gang member or terrorist.

ICE agents are instructed not to arrest and deport criminal illegal aliens unless they pose a “current threat to public safety.” In addition, last month, Mayorkas issued a list of “protected areas” where ICE agents are barred from arresting illegal aliens. Those areas include schools, healthcare facilities, places of worship, playgrounds, childcare centers, school bus stops, crisis centers, homeless shelters, rehab facilities, food banks, disaster relief centers, funerals, weddings, protests, rallies, and parades.

It’s obvious Mayorkas doesn’t consider securing our homeland to be part of his job description. His job is to facilitate our homeland’s invasion.
