New Non-profit Advocates For Closing ‘Wide Open’ Borders

On Monday, a newly established nonprofit was launched with the aim of advocating for the effective enforcement of immigration laws within the interior of the United States.

The National Immigration Center for Enforcement, also known as NICE, alleges that the Biden administration has instructed the immigration enforcement agency to deliberately disregard immigration laws.

NICE intends to equip and guide Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with the necessary tools and directives to perform its duties appropriately and effectively.

NICE’s website states, “Our borders are wide open, and the entire world knows it. If you cross illegally, you’ll likely get to stay — regardless of intent, criminal history or eligibility. This is a direct result of U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) agents being directed by political interests to catch and release illegal aliens, rather than apprehend, track, detain and remove them in an expeditious manner.”

RJ Hauman, an accomplished professional with over a decade of experience in Washington specializing in immigration enforcement, is at the helm of the organization as its president.

Hauman gave a statement to Fox News Digital saying, “The Biden administration has directed the very agency in charge of enforcing our immigration laws to willfully violate them. This has triggered a historic border crisis while inflicting immeasurable harm on the American people, our communities and the very fabric of our nation.”

He went on to assert, “When fully operational and acting in accordance with federal law, ICE makes America safer and more secure. Instead, political forces here in Washington have hijacked ICE and continue to prevent its brave men and women from enforcing our laws and defending our country – precisely what the agency was created to do.”

NICE advocates for an end to the Biden administration’s policy of “catch-and-release.”

The organization says, “Rather than detain illegal aliens as the law requires, the Biden administration appears intent on releasing as many of them as possible into the country without any expectation that they will comply with our immigration laws. This leaves American communities vulnerable to dangerous, criminal aliens who are more than happy to violate our immigration laws and commit heinous crimes.”

NICE’s advisory board consists of a number of former officials from the Department of Homeland Security, including Joseph Edlow, former acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director; John Fabbricatore, retired ICE Field Office Director; Mike Howell, former official of DHS Office of General Counsel and Chris Russo, President of Texans for Strong Borders.
