The Biden-Harris regime silences ICE! The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Twitter account “ICE Alerts,” long relied upon by media, law enforcement and border watchdogs to post info about convicted illegal aliens was set to private mode on Tuesday. The most recent post from the account was January 21st which provided information on a “failed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer in New York City” according to BizPac Review. The outlet reported,
“A majority of the posts made from the account said, “when jurisdictions fail to honor an @ICEgovdetainer, it risks both public and officer safety, and unnecessarily expends ICE’s already-limited resources. Have you seen this #fugitive? He is wanted by @ICEgovERO,” followed by a photograph of the wanted person and details about their criminal history. “
A post to the account on January 14th shortly before the end of President Trump’s term, the account asked the public to report sightings of “most wanted fugitives,” including some of the “highest ranking leaders” of MS-13 charged with terrorism offenses in the United States.

“Once again, it appears the Biden administration is putting open borders policies over the safety and security of American citizens. Locking the ICE alerts account prevents the public from receiving critical information about criminal aliens,” Congressman Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) told the Daily Caller “I fear it will be American lives that will pay the price for the Administration’s reckless policies.”
Former Senior Advisor to President Trump and Chief of Staff, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Jon Feere posted a lengthy twitter thread regarding the closure of this crucial communications tool.
“It seems the Biden Admin locked @ICEAlerts because if you were to report the location of one of these dangerous aliens to ICE, it would become too obvious that these assaulters, drug dealers, thieves, and drunk drivers are now allowed to go free under Biden’s policies.”
The Biden Admin is also no longer updating the account. Here are some of the public alerts posted by ICE over the past year: pic.twitter.com/3E863phicA

Feere then reposted eight records from the disabled Twitter feed detailing the criminals that the Biden-Harris regime doesn’t want the public to see evidently.. He followed up noting that drunk driving deportations would likely decrease, tagging the Mothers Against Drunk Driving. “The Biden Admin wants to endanger Americans by keeping drunk-driving illegal aliens on our streets. In FY19, there were over 74K DUI records among the aliens arrested by ICE; in FY20 over 55K. Biden’s policies discourage arrests/deportations of such aliens. cc: @MADDOnline”
Biden Admin’s “Highest Standards of Transparency”?
Steven Aftergood wrote for the Federation of American Scientists wrote,
“In a democracy, the public deserves as much transparency as possible regarding the work of our national security institutions, consistent with legitimate needs to protect sources and methods and sensitive foreign relationships,” according to a memorandum issued by President Biden on February 4.
“The revitalization of our national security and foreign policy workforce requires a recommitment to the highest standards of transparency,” the President wrote.
Precisely how does disabling a commonly used tool to inform the public about dangerous fugitives provide the “Highest standards of Transparency”? The Biden-Harris regime has again proven their hypocrisy.
