As the U.S.-Mexico border is being ravaged with illegal immigrants, the Biden administration is apparently worried about something else: domestic violent extremism.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new priority on Monday and it’s downright laughable given there’s no threat of “domestic violent extremism” compared to the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have arrived at the U.S. border so far this year.
“Domestic violent extremism poses the most lethal and persistent terrorism-related threat to our country today,” Mayorkas released in a statement. “As we work to safeguard our Nation, we must be vigilant in our efforts to identify and combat domestic violent extremism within both the broader community and our own organization. Hateful acts and violent extremism will not be tolerated within our Department.”
“Recent events, including the January 6th attacks on the U.S. Capitol, have highlighted that domestic violent extremism poses the most lethal and persistent terrorism-related threat to our country today. Addressing this threat is an urgent priority of the Biden-Harris Administration and of this Department. We will continue to work with our partners to immediately address it,” he continued in a letter to Department employees and staff.
“As we work to safeguard the Nation and our values, we must be vigilant in our efforts to identify and combat domestic violent extremism within both the broader community and our own organization. Violent extremism has no place at DHS and we will work with urgency and focus to address it,” he added.
So what exactly will this “investigation” entail? And what specifically is Mayorkas trying to “identify?”
“At the direction of the Secretary, a cross-Departmental working group comprised of senior officials will immediately begin a comprehensive review of how to best prevent, detect, and respond to threats related to domestic violent extremism within DHS. This internal team, which will be led by the Department’s Chief Security Officer, will produce a report with recommendations for the Secretary on how best to identify and respond to threats related to domestic violent extremism, including those based on racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism,” DHS released.
Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton had sued Biden’s administration for allegedly releasing Covid-infected illegal aliens into the United States.
Last month it was reported that the Biden Administration was releasing Covid positive illegal aliens into the US interior.
But wait, it gets worse.
While there’s an increase in Covid-infected illegal aliens coming into America, Biden has substantially decreased the number of illegal aliens they are arresting.
According to Breitbart, Immigration and Customs Enforcement have carried out 75% fewer “priority” arrests, and arrests the Biden administration deems “non-priority” have been cut by over 80% compared to the same time frame in 2020.
Breitbart News reports on the breakdown on the reduction in arrests of illegal aliens:
Specifically, those “non-priority” arrests of illegal aliens by ICE have been cut from 17,810 at the beginning of 2020 to just 3,306 arrests in the first seven weeks of the Biden administration.
In the case of violent illegal aliens, Binder also listed off some truly remarkable declines in arrests:
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with homicide cut by 17 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with sexual assault cut by 22 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with burglary cut by 60 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with drunk driving cut by 71 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens considered security threats cut by 42 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with immigration crimes cut by 54 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with kidnapping cut by 40 percent
- Arrests of illegal aliens charged with gun crimes cut by 30 percent
The Breitbart report added:
Data collected from January 21 to March 31 shows that the number of illegal aliens in ICE custody has dropped by 70 percent since 2019. Today, there are less than 14,000 illegal aliens in ICE custody — the lowest level in the agency’s history — compared to May 2019 when nearly 50,000 illegal aliens were in the custody of ICE.
Of the less than 14,000 illegal aliens in ICE custody today, more than 5,100 are convicted criminals and 919 others have pending criminal charges against them, indicating a 70 percent and 84 percent reduction in the number of criminal illegal aliens in ICE custody.
Last week, it was revealed that the Biden administration is directing Border Patrol agents to dramatically decrease using DNA tests on apprehended migrants at the border, which was used by the Trump administration to identify “fake families.”
Border officials are now administering fewer rapid DNA tests among migrant families amid as the border crisis is raging under Joe Biden.
Officials told the Washington Examiner that ICE has been directed to release migrant families into the country or expel them to their home countries and only use DNA tests if it’s “absolutely necessary.”
