Breitbart News reports that District Attorneys across the United States who received financial backing from leftwing billionaire financier George Soros are forging a new criminal justice initiative that would treat criminal illegal aliens differently from Americans when prosecuting them for crimes.
Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, for example, has issued a policy that requires county prosecutors to weigh so-called “immigration consequences” for illegal aliens accused of crimes to ensure that they are not put on the radar of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and, thus, arrested for deportation.
The initiative to treat illegal aliens differently from their American citizen counterparts in the criminal justice system has become a fixture of DAs backed by Soros in their campaigns.
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner — who raked in $1.7 million from Soros-linked groups — has imposed a similar policy that seeks discretion for illegal aliens charged with crimes to help them evade deportation by ICE agents.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, also financially backed by a Soros-linked group, imposed a prosecutorial lenience policy for illegal aliens on day one after taking office, writing in a letter to staff, “The Office will seek dispositions that avoid immigration consequences for all misdemeanors, and all felonies for which non-carceral outcomes are the presumptive outcome.”
Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, financially backed by a Soros-linked group in 2020, also announced so-called prosecutorial “reforms” in October to seek to charge illegal aliens with crimes that will not necessarily get them deported from the U.S.
George Soros and his pro-crime minions are enemies of the people.

On July 13, 2020, OSF, in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and its allies, pledged to donate $220 million into initiatives designed to help “build power in Black communities, promote bold new anti-racist policies in U.S. cities, and help first-time activists stay engaged.” The pledge earmarked $150 million in five-year grants for black-led “racial justice” organizations, and $70 million for a range of initiatives such as helping city governments reform policing and criminal justice by implementing a new approach to public safety that includes “moving beyond the culture of criminalization and incarceration.” “This is the time for urgent and bold action to address racial injustice in America,” said OSF deputy chair Alex Soros, George Soros’s son. “These investments will empower proven leaders in the Black community to reimagine policing, end mass incarceration, and eliminate the barriers to opportunity that have been the source of inequity for too long.” Tom Perriello, executive director of Open Society-U.S., said: “The success of this movement, the largest in U.S. history, will be measured over years, not weeks, and we cannot say that Black lives matter and not make a multi-year commitment to a strategy set by and centering Black leaders and organizations who changed America’s sense of what is possible.”
