F. Peter Brown: Biden’s Nominee for Immigration and Customs Enforcement Is Against ‘Enforcement’


President Joe Biden has nominated Texas sheriff and Trump critic Ed Gonzalez to be head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is a Democrat who opposed Trump’s move to deport many illegal immigrants. “‪I do not support ICE raids that threaten to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, the vast majority of whom do not represent a threat to the U.S,” Gonzalez wrote in a 2019 Facebook post, according to Reuters. “The focus should always be on clear & immediate safety threats.” Gonzalez thus opposed the rule of law when it comes to immigrant deportation. The rule of law is a fundamental concept in the U.S.: It means that the law is more important to follow than the whims of politicians. The rule of law would dictate that all immigrants who have come here in violation of U.S. law should be deported. President Trump supported this, but Gonzalez believes that the rule of law should be cast aside and that ICE should focus only on immediate threats. The enforcement of the law should be at the top of the list of things to do for the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
