First news item. House Democrats wants ICE to release all transgender detainees at once. Second news item.
All detainees claim to be transgender. The Democrats claim that transgenders are subject to more abuse than others.
But, are they safer in detention with round the clock armed guards or out in the streets in the United States where transgenders claim everyone abuses them?
What came first? The chicken or the egg?
The charge is being led by Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), who believes ICE is legally required to set them free.
An illegal alien by any other pronoun……………… Can’t tell your gender without a scorecard.
This is how the Democrats work. They find a small minority, and instead of giving them equal rights, they give them special rights.
Once they get them special rights, then the argument becomes don’t all illegals deserve the same rights? Let them all go free.
That’s incrementalism at its finest.
Quigley cites a report done under the Obama administration to justify letting them go. Hey, Quigley, take it up with Obama. The present administration is not responsible for the failure of the previous one to keep their promises.
“As far as we are aware, no facility has ever entered into a contract modification pursuant to the 2015 memo, which means that by the plain text of this language ICE is now legally obligated to immediately release every transgender person in detention,” Quigley wrote.
There are between 15,000 and 50,000 transgender illegal immigrants living in the U.S., according to an estimate from the National Center for Transgender Equality, and numerous transgender people seek asylum in the United States due to increased threat of persecution or death in their home countries.
Quigley said ICE can choose to either release these transgender detainees into the community or transfer them into “supervised alternative-to-detention programming.” The letter, according to Quigley, has a Friday deadline for lawmakers to sign on to the letter.
