President Joe Biden’s executive orders to turn America into a sanctuary nation have helped get illegal aliens released from jail who have been accused of sexual assault against a child and domestic violence, as alleged in a lawsuit.
Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) back in February, issued orders that direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to no longer pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation unless they were convicted recently of aggravated felonies are terrorists or known gang members.
Later, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, asking for a preliminary injunction, and alleging that Biden’s executive orders, among other things, violate federal immigration law.

Last month, US District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell denied Florida’s request for a preliminary injunction to stop Biden’s orders from being enforced, arguing that the orders are “interim policies” and thus are not “final laws” that the state can challenge.
How come CNN and MSNBC aren’t talking about the dangers of ordering law enforcement to not enforce the law?
Moody filed an appeal in the 11th Circuit, seeking the court to reverse Honeywell’s ruling and asking to grant a preliminary injunction to stop the orders because they have real consequences for real Americans.
In the appeal, Moody describes two cases where the orders have resulted in the release of illegal aliens accused of child sex crimes and domestic violence:
In support of its motion, Florida provided several emails from ICE officials to Florida corrections officers. In those emails, ICE officials refused to take custody of criminal aliens who were scheduled to be released from prison — and they admitted that their only reason for doing so was the challenged memos.
Defendants have admitted that many of these aliens are subject to § 1226(c), and the behavior of these aliens is disturbing. One has repeatedly engaged in burglary and grand theft. Another is an aggravated stalker. And several have serious drug convictions, including selling and trafficking drugs like cocaine and amphetamine.
Florida provided other examples of aliens who, while not subject to § 1226(c), demonstrate the reckless nature of the challenged memos, and show that the memos apply to those in local custody, not just state custody. In Pasco County, for example, ICE has allowed the release of aliens accused of sexual assault of a minor and domestic violence (in that case, while the victim’s young children watched).
The accusations come as reports came out detailing how criminal illegal aliens in Martin County and St. Lucie County, Florida, are being released into American communities instead of being turned over to ICE agents for their arrest and deportation all because of Biden’s orders.
This is insanity! The federal government is now telling the American people that their citizenship no longer means anything.
William Snyder, the Martin County Sheriff, told WPTV 5 News that “close to 50 percent” of criminal illegal aliens in his department’s custody are having their ICE detainers dropped and no one is telling law enforcement why it’s happening.
“We’ve had some problem with ICE dropping holds so we have people that have ICE holds and inexplicably they’re dropped,” Snyder said.
Several illegal aliens who were convicted of burglary, credit card fraud, grand theft auto, and other crimes, were named by Moody when he filed the lawsuit against the Biden administration. They were either waiting for release or had already been set free from Florida prison all because of Biden’s orders.
Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis ordered a crackdown on illegal immigration requiring state agencies to alert local law enforcement whenever an illegal alien gets released back into communities as a response to Biden’s orders.
