(Liberty Bell) – You can’t go a single day without hearing the haughty voices of liberals — both in the real world and in the digital one — bragging constantly about how “tolerant” they are and how they are just so full of compassion and blah, blah, blah.
However, it seems the vast majority of the compassion and tolerance they possess is reserved for those who are lawbreakers, particularly those of the illegal alien variety. It’s no secret that Democerats take full advantage of this demographic of individuals, promising them all kinds of free goodies and a free pass for breaking the law in exchange for voting Democrat and helping them retain power.
Their latest crusade involves attempts to release convicted criminals, including sex offenders, back out onto the streets to keep the coronavirus from spreading within prison populations. So they love the nasty criminal, but could care less about his or her potential new victims?
Now a movement is picking up that is calling for the federal government to release illegal aliens from detention centers.
Here’s more from WND:
The American Civil Liberties Union and other advocacy groups are advancing several lawsuits to have illegal immigrant detainees be released from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainment because of their risk of contracting coronavirus.
The ACLU of Pennsylvania bragged about their success on Tuesday.
“A federal court in Harrisburg has ruled that our clients in immigration detention must be released today, to lower their risk of contracting COVID-19,” the organization’s statement on Twitter read. “The message to ICE is clear: release people now who are at risk of getting sick or dying.”
🚨 VICTORY! A federal court in Harrisburg has ruled that our clients in immigration detention must be released today, to lower their risk of contracting COVID-19.
The message to ICE is clear: release people now who are at risk of getting sick or dying.

Over the weekend, the Trump administration was ordered by a federal judge to either release illegal immigrant minors in their care or otherwise argue why they must be kept in custody during the pandemic, as well as demonstrate that certain facilities that detain families are suitably hygienic, according to the New York Post.
True to form, Democrats have been issuing a call for what they deem to be “vulnerable” illegal aliens to be released from prisons right away. Now, we’d all like to assume that basic care for the individuals really is what is at heart in this issue, but with it being an election year, you can guarantee the main motivation for all this is to appease left-wing voters and to hope that these individuals will cast a ballot for the Democratic nominee instead of Trump.
“ICE is not equipped to deal with the complex medical needs of vulnerable migrants during the coronavirus crisis,” the Twitter account for the 38-member Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which is composed solely of Democrats, asserted. “DHS must release all low-priority detainees NOW, before another person dies due to their negligence.”

Now, it’s important to note that conservatives aren’t saying that having so many people packed closely together in detention facilities isn’t a problem that needs to be addressed. It most certainly is, especially with a virus like this that is devastatingly easy to pass around. However, there has to be another option that will protect both the general population and those in prison. This isn’t an either/or thing, it’s a both/and thing.
Why in the world are people so drawn to extreme positions on this issue, rather than trying to walk the middle road and find solutions that work for everyone? It is because doing so is a lot more work? Sure, it’s more work, but almost anything worth doing is going to be difficult and require massive effort.
If we truly value human life, we need to focus our attention on these matters in a balanced way.
