In his newly released national immigration plan, 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders vows to end all deportations.
Bernie did not make any exceptions for illegal convicted murderers and sex criminals and under his plan, they would not be deported either.
Bernie’s immigration website pushes “a welcoming and safe America for all” and touts “Bernie believes we must stand up for our values and accept refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream.”
Breitbart reports Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is planning to halt deportations for all illegal aliens in federal custody, including those who are convicted murderers, sex offenders, sexual assailants, and drunk drivers.
In his national immigration plan released this week, Sanders — who once disavowed open borders and endorsed more detention space for border crossers — is now vowing to halt the deportation of all illegal aliens currently in deportation proceedings in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, regardless of their criminal history.
In any given year, more than 6,600 convicted murderers and sex offenders are arrested by ICE and placed into deportation proceedings. Under Sanders’ plan, those criminal illegal aliens would have their deportations halted, allowing them to remain in the United States for an extended period of time.
In December 2018, there were more than 6,100 “Level 1” convicted criminals in ICE custody. These are the most violent, career criminal-types. Sanders’ plan would ensure that none are deported.
At the same time that ICE would be banned from deporting even the most violent convicted criminal illegal aliens under Sanders’ plan, new arrests by ICE agents would pile up and potentially cause a shortage of detention space for the agency.
