Arizona AG: Biden’s immigration policy is to ‘stop deporting people’
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich appeared on “The Sara Carter Show” Podcast Monday to talk about and the lawsuits he’s filed surrounding the border crisis. Right now, these suits have just begun and his office is still in the midst of discovery.
As they’ve been searching emails to and from Immigration Customs Enforcement, Border Customs Protection and the White House, they’ve found troubling messages. Brnovich told Carter they’ve only been searching for a day since the interview, but they already found evidence of impropriety. “Activists emailed the White House and said, because it’s Black History Month, you have to stop deporting people,” Brnovich said. “And within days, there was a directive from ICE basically saying, we’re going to stop deporting people.”
Then, they also deposed an ICE officer who shared a troubling update from the last 100+ days. “He basically said that as a result of these Biden policies, there are people not being picked up,” Brnovich said.
This policy doesn’t just apply to people who attempt to immigrate from now on, but even those in custody now. “We have people right now in Arizona prisons in short term custody,” Brnovich said, “that have been convicted of crimes like arson, manslaughter, assault, sexual assault, and they are scheduled to be released from Arizona prison or from custody.”
Suddenly, Brnovich says an immigration problem becomes a “threat to national security [and] to public safety.” Yet at the same time, Vice President and border czar Harris is “not doing anything. She doesn’t care, and it’s it’s sad.”
Now, there are more than 20,000 migrant children in custody. It’s expected that 2 million people will cross the border illegally this year, according to Brnovich. Just in the last three months were over 450,000 people, roughly the city population of Minneapolis, that crossed the southern border.
With the rise of the border crisis coinciding with Biden’s election into office, Brnovich says voting is the solution. “Elections have consequences,” he said.
