Radical, far-left groups and lawmakers are using the panic and fear caused by coronavirus as an opportunity to push for the release of illegal aliens and criminals into the general population, and to call for a moratorium on all deportations.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing a Seattle area ICE detention center, demanding the immediate release of their detainees.

While we’re at it, why don’t we just open the doors to every prison in America?

If we’re going to allow lawbreakers from other countries to run free in America so they don’t get coronavirus, why wouldn’t we give prisoners who are American citizens the same privilege?

According to the Seattle Times, emails sent by an ICE official to Seattle immigration attorney Inna Scott highlighted that one detainee had been tested for coronavirus and was awaiting results, and one housing unit was being cohorted. Reports say the detention center houses up to 1,575 immigrants going through deportation proceedings.

One of America’s most radical, anti-American lawmakers, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), is joining other radicals in congress like Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), in a call for prisoners to be released.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) retweeted a link from WBUR reporter Shannon Dooling, who writes about the radical lawmaker’s desire to see illegal immigrants released from ICE facilities and to impose a moratorium on all deportations.

Conservative commentator Candace Owens asks conservatives how they feel about states allowing prisoners to leave and governors of states shutting down private businesses. Owens also asks conservatives how they feel about law enforcement arresting fewer people because of coronavirus?

Owens ends her tweet with an important quote from Benjamin Franklin, who warned about those who freely give up their freedoms to purchase temporary safety:

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” -Benjamin Franklin

Candace Owens wasn’t too far off the mark. Yesterday, the Philadelphia Police Department publicly stated that because of the coronavirus outbreak, they would stop making arrests for nonviolent crimes until next month.

The Fraternal Order of Police issued a statement supporting the decision, which covers all narcotics offenses, thefts, burglary, vandalism, prostitution, stolen cars, economic crimes, such as bad checks and fraud, and any existing bench warrants.

“The directive was released to keep officers safe during this public-health crisis,” said FOP Lodge 5 President John McNesby. “Meanwhile, violent offenders will be arrested and processed with the guidance of a police supervisor.”
