The battle against illegal immigration is not over yet. But, President Trump and the GOP might score big victories in the coming weeks. We might see DACA end and a better immigration plan created.
The wall might even go up by the end of the year. But that won’t stop the many illegals currently in the country.
Needless to say, ICE has a massive job ahead of them. They have to track down and apprehend a mass amount of dangerous criminal aliens.
Illegals that keep their heads down and don’t cause problems might be safe. But there are many who commit violent crimes, DUI deaths, and even child molestation.
It’s vital that we deport these fiends. And, a new tool might give ICE a serious edge.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents plan to utilize license plate readers to find illegal immigrants.
Police agencies throughout the U.S. use the systems to apprehend fugitives who have escaped justice, but open borders and amnesty activists are up in arms over the increased enforcement step.
License plate scanning systems use cameras and computers to determine the name of owners of vehicles.
ICE published its intent “to award a contract to obtain query-based access to a commercially available License Plate Reader (LPR) database” on January 8.
According to The Verge, an online technology publication, “[t]he system gives the agency access to billions of license plate records and new powers of real-time location tracking…”
ICE agents would be able to query that database in two ways. A historical search would turn up every place a given license plate has been spotted in the last five years, a detailed record of the target’s movements.
That data could be used to find a given subject’s residence or even identify associates if a given car is regularly spotted in a specific parking lot.
We know in sanctuary states like California, illegals can get driver’s licenses. They most likely also have registered vehicles. ICE will be able to use this loophole against illegals, by scanning their plates.
Liberals thought that giving them these privileges would help aliens. Instead, they are signing up for their own deportations!
In the immediate future, this technology will help ICE round up even more illegals. Then a shift will happen. Illegals will be far less likely to sign up for licenses and plates.
That means they will have a harder time staying in the United States. Fewer will even want to cross the border, knowing they will get caught.
That’s a brilliant stroke of genius by ICE. We would expect nothing less from one of Trump’s agencies.
