Soros-Backed Philadelphia DA Reducing Charges Against Immigrants to Protect Them From Deportation

John Binder, Breitbart, May 30, 2024

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner (D), who is linked to billionaire George Soros, is reducing criminal charges against immigrants to shield them from deportation, an investigation from the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) alleges.

The investigation looked at Krasner’s creation of the Immigration Counsel, which provides defense services to immigrants facing criminal prosecution by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office — paid for by the city’s taxpayers.

As a result, Krasner’s office “is reducing charges, no matter what crimes an alien defendant has committed, in order to shield foreign nationals from being placed in removal proceedings before the United States Immigration Court,” the investigation alleges:

IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox called Krasner’s actions “outrageous.”

“He is directly contradicting the purpose of a district attorney — to prosecute crimes — and using his office to help immigration violators evade the law,” Wilcox said. {snip}

Typically, when immigrants are arrested or convicted of crimes, they can become eligible for deportation from the U.S. Sanctuary cities, like Philadelphia, hope to impede that process by ensuring criminal immigrants are never turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for deportation.

The investigation suggests that Krasner’s Immigration Counsel guarantees that immigrants facing prosecution have charges against them reduced to avoid deportation.
