Biden admin will transport illegal immigrants out of state for abortions at taxpayer expense

by Laurel Duggan

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will transfer pregnant migrant women across state lines for abortions when they are detained in states where abortion is illegal, according to ICE guidance obtained by The Wall Street Journal.

The guidance is an extension of an existing ICE policy of helping detained immigrants get abortions in cases of rape, incest and to protect the life of a mother, according to the WSJ. The memo will be sent out later this week in response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, in advance of any potential conflicts between ICE and states that have outlawed abortion.

“This memorandum serves as a reminder of existing ICE policies and standards requiring that pregnant individuals detained in ICE immigration custody have access to full reproductive health care,” the memo states. “This is also a reminder that, pursuant to existing ICE policy, it may be necessary to transfer a detained pregnant individual within an area of responsibility (AOR) or to another AOR, when appropriate and practicable, in order to ensure such access.”

ICE announced in June 2021 that it would stop detaining women who are known to be pregnant.

The new guidance is the latest move from the Biden administration to promote abortion access through the federal bureaucracy despite state laws banning the procedure. The Department of Health and Human Services under Biden is pressuring healthcare providers to perform abortions in emergency situations regardless of state laws, and Biden is considering declaring a federal public health emergency to promote abortion access.

ICE did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. I’m sorry, but the brazenness, and stupidity of this administration has ceased to amaze me. Got anything else that’s meant to “shock and awe” me ?

    • The guy known as PEDO Peter in family circles revealed in Hunter’s private cloud emails, would crash his bike to smell a little girl’s hair. Seems odd that he loves abortion so much!

  2. So Much Treason……… many issues….OMG I am at my witt’s end

  3. Regardless of your position on abortion, every taxpayers on both sides should be saying NO, NO, NO ! WHY, if isn’t obvious is because U.S. tax payer money should never go to illegals; for abortion or transportation to another state for abortion. I have never met anyone in my 51 years of employment who ever said, ” I wish the government would take more of my pay check in federal tax”. Indeed, the ones coming up with this s _ _ _ are government employees in DC who pay NO federal tax.
