CNN national security analyst and former member of Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, Juliette Kayyem, called for a halt to immigration enforcement in the area of Uvalde, Texas in response to the tragic school shooting.
Uvalde High School student Salvador Ramos is accused of murdering 22 people yesterday, including 19 children and 3 adults.
Kayyem, commenting on the “political issues in Texas” in an appearance on Jake Tapper’s “The Lead,” suggested the critical thing for everyone in the area right now is to have sanctuary.
“The most important thing for the federal government to do right now is to say there will be no immigration enforcement during this period in that area,” she claimed.
Kayyem noted that the demographics of the school district are overwhelmingly Hispanic.
“It has a large immigration population,” she continued. “You want parents with their kids; you don’t want people hiding right now, and we need to make that clear ASAP because of the political issues in Texas.”

CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem was so determined to make the point that suspension of immigration laws is the most important thing following the horrific shooting that she reiterated it moments later.
“We need the federal government to say right now, everyone is essentially safe harbor right now in terms of immigration status,” she declared, noting most illegal immigrants will avoid interaction with a heavy police presence in the area.
“We want to make sure that they know, despite all the politics going on in Texas right now, it’s the federal government that’s in charge of immigration enforcement,” she said.
“And people are safe. Get your kids, get your families together. Do not hide. The White House just needs to say that right now.”

Kayyem sounded very different when talking about Canadian truckers earlier this year who were peacefully protesting against COVID mandates.
In fact, she wanted law enforcement to take drastic action.
“Slash the tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks,” Kayyem said.
Days after the Capitol riot, Kayyem referred to then-President Trump as the “leader of a terrorist organization.”
