Dem sponsored Bill would allow ‘vulnerable’ LGBTQ illegal immigrants to be immune from border detention

Two Democrats, Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey have found a way to combine two extremely progressive policies to create even worse outcomes.

The Democratic leaders are sponsoring the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which would allow for “vulnerable” migrants  to “not be detained,” Fox News reported. Vulnerable groups, according to the bill, include migrants who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex,” don’t speak English, or have experienced “severe trauma.”

“This is a measure that will go a long way to restore humanity and dignity to the immigration system.” Jayapal said.

The Washington Free Beacon notes that under the Democrat proposed bill, the Department of Homeland Security could only detain a migrant identified as “vulnerable” if the agency could prove that it is “unreasonable or not practicable to place the alien in a community-based supervision program.”

The bill contains a host of other provisions that makes it more difficult to detain migrants of any status, imposing, for instance, a “presumption that the alien should be released” during custody hearings.

The border crisis has intensified since President Joe Biden took office. Border Patrol agents reported 162,317 migrant encounters in March, which was an increase of 32,000 migrants from February. The Washington Times reported that eleven of the migrants were listed on the terror watch list. 

Title 42, the policy allowing agents to turn illegal immigrants away due to the pandemic, will expire on May 11. Biden’s enforcement of it has come into question, with new reporting showing the administration accepted 99 percent of migrants’ requests made through an immigration app for exemptions from the policy, adds the Washington Free Beacon.

Overdose death in IN apartment building leads officers to 13 migrants, mostly children, in basement squalor

13 illegal aliens — most of them children — were reportedly living in an apartment building basement in Indiana, only found because of an overdose death. Officers of the Hammond Police Department were called to investigate the death of a resident in the multi-unit building. But during the investigation, officers discovered a large number of migrants were illegally living in the building’s basement, WGN-TV reported.

When officers arrived, they found 13 illegals from Venezuela — including nine children ranging in age from two months to 14 years, and two women and two men — living in the basement space.

Neighbors told the media that they had no idea that so many people were living illegally in the building as they never saw any of them outside the home.

Further investigation revealed that a local member of the clergy had arranged the illegal living quarters for the migrants. The clergy member was not identified publicly and he has not been charged with anything at present.

“The City of Hammond is not open to this type of illegal criminal activity and [they have] placed people in significant harm, including children,” said Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott Jr. who insisted he would hold the clergy member accountable.

It has not yet been reported what the migrants will do, where they will go, and if the city will be on the hook to care for them.

Breitbart News reports that Hammond, Indiana, is just one of many cities in which large numbers of illegals have been found crammed into small spaces in squalid living conditions.

In March, New York City building inspectors discovered an illegal flop house for migrants in which some 70 of them were living in the cramped basement of a Queens furniture store. Through an investigation it was found that the building’s owner, a man named Ebou Sarr, himself an immigrant, was charging the illegals $300 a month to live there.
