TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): In an internal memo sent last week, ICE officials announced the administration is suspending something called Operation Talon. That operation targeted sex offenders, but no more. Illegal alien sex offenders are now a protected class.
Then, a day after that, another internal ICE memo announced that, quote, “effective immediately, the Biden administration would stop deporting illegal aliens who have been convicted of drug offenses, assault, DUI, money laundering, property crimes, fraud, tax evasion or who have gang tattoos."
Going forward, any illegal alien charged with a crime but not yet convicted of a crime would be safe from deportation. So, what does all of that mean in practice?
Well, it means for example, that an MS-13 member arrested for drug dealing with previous convictions for, say, theft, extortion, grand larceny, would have to be released back into the United States, maybe into your neighborhood, even if he had been deported many times before.
That's not some crazy hypothetical, by the way. Things like that will happen. A foreign national charged with rape but who flees before trial, and that happens quite a bit, cannot be deported either. Technically, he hasn't been convicted of rape, so deporting him would be an act of bigotry, and so on.
This is all real, and we will see cases like that, guaranteed.
