Among the priority categories of security and safety cases, arrests of migrants with sexual assault charges were down more than 20%, weapons-offense arrests slid nearly 30% and arrests of kidnappers were down nearly 40% compared to the same period a year ago. … “Almost one thousand more ‘worst of the worst’ criminal aliens were arrested under Trump’s priorities,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “What this tells me is that, paradoxically, it looks like the Biden policies are actually hampering ICE’s ability to arrest even the most serious criminals who are a priority.”

“The Trump administration did a number of things on the immigration side that I really disagree with,” Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, told the Washington Examiner. “However, I don’t think the Biden administration should just wholesale say, ‘We’re getting rid of all of it.’ I think we analyze pieces of it and see. We need a comprehensive approach.” … Sen. Jon Tester, a Montana Democrat, told the Washington Examiner he is favorable to the “Remain in Mexico” policy. “Working with the folks south of the border to make sure folks don’t come is smart politics,” Tester said.
