Speaking to Vice News, former Vice President Joe Biden said that drunk driving illegal aliens should not be deported by ICE.
“I Don’t Consider Drunk-Driving a Felony”
Biden told Vice that he would “hold ICE agents accountable if in fact they stepped over my executive orders, which is no arrests of anyone outside of the schools.”
He said that Latino and Hispanic children are under “incredible pressure” from the concern of the fact that their parents could be deported at any time. “They go off to school, wondering whether when mom comes and picks them up, is she not going to be there because an ICE agent was there to arrest her? Or when she takes them to the doctor, is she not going to be there because she is quote undocumented and an ICE against is going to pick them up,” Biden explained.
Vice asked Biden how he was supposed to change the culture within ICE, and he responded that the easiest way to simply threaten firing any agent who dared to arrest any illegal alien for anything other than a felony. “You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed, and I don’t consider drunk-driving as a felony,” Biden said.
A Potentially Deadly Cocktail of Policies
Biden’s announcement comes a month after New York began allowing illegal aliens access to driver’s licences. Governor Cuomo signed the so-called “Green Light” law in June of last year, and it came into force in December. Not only do they have access to licences now, but any ICE agent who runs their plates will not be given access to the public records associated with their vehicle. So the natural progression to permitting illegals to get away with drunk driving is clearly just a natural step up!
I wonder if Cuomo and Biden met, and decided that they’d like to screw the American people over in a one-two punch knockout of potentially deadly policies. I really hope that the Green Light law isn’t given this extra backing from a President Biden!
