If they were released back into the countries they came from, I’m sure a ton of us would be on board.
Unfortunately, we live amongst Democrats who actually believe that unleashing illegal aliens into America is less detrimental than the coronavirus spreading within the detention centers they’re being held in.
I mean, if they’re already in cells, and they’re confined to a building, aren’t they already upholding the basic requirements of a quarantine?
So, what the actual hell is going to improve when/if they are released? I’d LOVE a sound answer to this.
According to Breitbart:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has called ICE’s detention of illegal aliens and border-crossers during the coronavirus crisis “a humanitarian crisis that is right on our doorstep.”
“A decision to do nothing is a decision to do harm,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Immigration attorneys with the George Soros-funded American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have been requesting for weeks that ICE release all illegal aliens and border-crossers into the U.S. to avoid the potential spread of the coronavirus in detention centers.
“No one should be forced to live in conditions that imperil their lives during this public health crisis,” an attorney for the ACLU told NBC News.

…UHM. I think releasing illegal aliens into the country would imperil the lives of legal American citizens far worse than this virus. Criminals are a virus all of their own, irrespective of race or circumstance.
Illegal aliens are KNOWN criminals from their first step onto our land.

Great methodology shown above: cause a nuisance to promote a nuisance.
More from Breitbart:
In a letter to ICE officials, more than 3,000 doctors from across the U.S. asked that illegal aliens and border-crossers be released from custody. Detainees, the doctors argue, “should be released while their legal cases are being processed to avoid preventable deaths and mitigate the harm from a [coronavirus] outbreak.”
Don’t they already receive free healthcare for “serious medical needs” in detention centers? Can’t the doctors just go to the detention centers and treat the criminals there?
…these are honest questions, by the way. For once, I’m not being facetious.
Such a release would allow about 40,000 illegal aliens and border-crossers, currently in ICE custody, to be set free into the U.S. while they await their immigration hearings and deportation orders.
