'What the hell is going on?' A horrifying reality when embedded with ICE agents inside a sanctuary city

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have been working in Massachusetts to round up illegal aliens after sanctuary cities ignored arrest requests.

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin reported after being embedded with a team of agents in Boston, one of eight sanctuary cities in Massachusetts. In just one morning with ICE's elite team of deportation officers, Melugin reported that four suspected child rapists and a violent MS-13 gang member were arrested.

“ICE says its requests to detain all of these illegal aliens were not served by local jurisdictions because of sanctuary policies in Massachusetts,” Melugin noted in a post on X.

“ICE tells me that these policies allow illegal aliens charged or convicted of heinous crimes to roam the streets after release without any warning, and they make their jobs more dangerous because they have to find and arrest aliens accused or convicted of serious crimes on the streets. to have them delivered in a secure environment like a prison,” the Fox News reporter explained.

“This is every day here in Boston,” ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons told Melugin, noting how “frustrating” sanctuary policies are.

“These are the threats to public safety that we really want to get off the street. It was a great day, a great day for the team. Five threats to public safety that can no longer victimize anyone,” he said, all and admit that staffing issues are a big challenge.

“I don't have enough officers or resources to deal with all these threats to public safety,” he said. “Are we going to go after the child rapist today, or are we going to go after the twice-deported fentanyl dealer? Because we can't do both.”

Melugin's post prompted many outraged responses, including one from X owner Elon Musk.

“We have a limited number of resources … there are only so many officers, so many hours in a day that we've always had to prioritize who we target for arrests and we're always trying to attack these heinous threats to public safety,” David Wesling, Deputy Chief of ICE's Boston field office, explained a WHDH in a report earlier this month.

“ICE has called on the courts this year to ignore their detainees and release a person accused of rape and indecent assault of a disabled person, a man with multiple weapons charges and a person accused of child abuse “, the news outlet noted. .

“This year, ICE agents from the Boston Office have arrested Brazilian child rapists, an MS-13 gang member wanted for murder, a Honduran gang member facing drug distribution charges, and a Romanian convicted murderer; all escaping prison in their countries by hiding in the US,” the WHDH report continued.

“2023 was a very, very busy year and we've already started to exceed our numbers in just the first two months of this year,” Lyons told the station, noting that the bureau retired 600 people and arrested 1,400 more last year, with all of them being convicted or charged with crimes.
