The open-borders lobby, including the George Soros-funded United We Dream, is calling on Joe Biden to consider releasing almost every illegal alien in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.
The 120 open borders organizations include:
- The American Immigration Lawyers Association
- Catholic Migration Service
- Center for American Progress
- United We Dream
The organizers are asking Biden to implement an ICE review process, which would “reconsider the custody determination for every person currently” in the agency’s custody.
There are now more than 14,000 detainees in ICE custody.
“We are heartened by the early steps the Biden-Harris Administration has taken to reorient the U.S. immigration system toward a framework that embraces human rights and compassion,” the letter states, adding:
“However, we are concerned that these policies have not yet been implemented in a meaningful or systemic way with regard to the approximately 14,000 people in ICE detention.
“Leaving behind the thousands who continue to suffer in detention will undermine efforts by your agencies to rebuild trust with communities and is at odds with Biden’s stated commitment to racial equity and human rights.”
The organizations are asking the Biden administration to “implement a file review process for every person in ICE custody, operating under a presumption of release for everyone.”
They also urge all ICE detainees “who fall outside the interim enforcement priorities outlined” in Biden’s order issued on January 20.
“Prioritize the release of individuals who face a heightened risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19 due to age or a preexisting condition as defined by the Centers for Disease Control, transgender people, HIV+ people, and all families and children,” they tell administration officials.
Last month, Biden laid the groundwork for an amnesty for 11 to 22 million illegal aliens during a meeting with borders lobbying groups to discuss a legislative strategy.
Biden and Kamala Harris met with cabinet nominees, open borders lobbying group executives, and sanctuary city politicians about “his day one plans to introduce immigration reform legislation and protect DACA recipients,” a readout of the meeting said.
Soros spent a staggering $10.37 million on lobbying for open borders in the second quarter of 2018 alone.
