The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is once again playing race politics and showing that they don't understand (or care about) the meaning of the word "ILLEGAL" when it comes to immigration or laws. On Tuesday, March 31, the Hispanic Caucus, led by radical socialist-Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro from San Antonio, demanded the release of hundreds of illegal aliens held in immigration detention be released.
It has been reported that four alien detainees and five Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees have tested positive for the virus. Castor and the Caucus claim they want to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and stave off an outbreak within the jails.
The American Civil Liberties Union, the National Immigration Justice Center, and members of the Hispanic Caucus held a news conference with the liberal news media to ask the Trump administration to release then illegal aliens. "ICE must release all detainees now before lives are lost," said Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, chairman of the Hispanic Caucus.
It is curious and ironic that the Hispanic Caucus and the leftist pro-alien groups don't ask that the illegal aliens be released back to their home countries.
