Sheriff Grady Judd burnt 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg‘s policy ideas Friday, arguing the South Bend, Ind., mayor’s plans would worsen the United States’ drug epidemic and criminal activity.
” He is guaranteeing more drug addicts, he’s guaranteeing more criminal activity, and he’s ensuring less help since we don’t have enough services for those who are addicted to criminal offenses now and he’s going to produce more dependency,” Judd told “ Fox & Pals“
Buttigieg plans to implement an executive order to prioritize enforcement on unlawful immigrants who are a “genuine public safety threat.” A Buttigieg administration also would pursue deportations for those who have just entered the country and have no claim of asylum.
Buttigieg wrote that this “targeted and reliable” technique will “guarantee obedient individuals who position no public security danger that they have absolutely nothing to fear from our federal government.”
Buttigieg also proposed updating the list of offenses that can prompt deportation, calling the present list “substantial, out-of-date, extremely extreme, and inconsistent with criminal justice reforms.” Under his presidency, drug offenses and misdemeanors would not lead to deportation. He prepares to use this rule retroactively to free the worry of deportation from those who have actually devoted the low-level offenses.
” What he’s informing the individuals of Iowa and the United States is, ‘Hey, I’m going to guarantee that criminal activity is going to increase, I’m going to ensure that individuals are going to steal more of your things, I’m going to ensure to you that more people are going to become addicted to criminal offense,'” Judd stated.
Judd said that an absence of discipline or law forbiding an act allows “people to do whatever they wish to do.”
