Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told the annual U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. that "it is the President's policy that justice and equity for illegal aliens living in America requires that we, in effect, make the entire country a 'sanctuary' where they can be free from fear that they will be arrested or deported. This requires that we shield them from laws that declare their actions crimes and their presence here unwarranted."
"In the first year of the Biden Administration, I am proud to report that this sanctuary approach has successfully allowed immigrants accused and convicted of child sex crimes, armed robbery, drunk driving, burglary, cocaine trafficking, grand theft auto, heroin trafficking, credit card fraud, money laundering, and other crimes to freely ply their trades in the United States," Mayokas boasted.
"Our message to the mayors around the country is that you are no longer out on a limb," the Secretary said. "As long as Democrats are in charge in Washington no efforts by Republicans at the state and local levels to impose cruel anti-immigration laws on these newcomers to America can succeed. As some of you may already know, the FBI raided the offices and home of Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Tex) after he criticized the President's immigration policy. Similar raids can be carried out against anyone who commits a similar offense in any city or state now that sanctuary is the law of the land."
