Former ICE Chief: Joe Biden Is Creating ‘Welcoming Centers’ for Illegal Immigrants


The Biden administration’s apparent plan to end the policy of family detention has been denounced by former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan. On Friday, ICE said in a court filing that it will transform family detention centers to short-term centers that release illegal immigrants after no more than 72 hours, according to NBC. As such, that would spell the end of the family detention policy first adopted by former President Barack Obama in 2014. The Washington Post reported that draft plans developed by the Department of Homeland Security mean that “The Biden administration is preparing to convert its immigrant family detention centers in South Texas into Ellis Island-style rapid-processing hubs that will screen migrant parents and children with a goal of releasing them into the United States within 72 hours.”
