ICE officials are not allowed to talk to illegal alien David DePape. They are being blocked by California officials.
Jon Feere, a former senior advisor, COS, Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE), posted this on his Twitter account on Sunday.
FYI: Sources in ICE tell me that San Francisco is not allowing officers to interview Paul Pelosi’s attacker, David DePape; i.e., Dems and SFPD are siding with the alleged attacker. ICE routinely interviews jailed aliens to determine appropriate next steps, background, etc.
DHS’s statements on DePape have been short and vague, likely because ICE hasn’t had a chance to talk with him. The Sheriff SF has a pro-criminal alien policy (SFSD 2-39) that blocks DHS and ICE from interviewing jailed illegal aliens. (Pages 271-77)
Why are California politicians Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris, and Speaker Pelosi okay with DePape being shielded from DHS? Is DHS Secretary Mayorkas not trying to get access, happily siding with the criminal alien instead of his own employees? What might ICE learn from an interview?
Earlier this year while speaking at the Conference of Mayors, Secretary Mayorkas claimed he would ask cities to “reconsider” their non-cooperation with ICE. Seems this would be a good opportunity, but he’s remained quiet.
