Feds STILL Advertising Safe Zones for Illegal Aliens

Despite Pres. Trump’s promise to build a wall and tighten border security, Department of Homeland security (DHS) websites are still advertising safe zones for illegal aliens where they are sheltered from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“This policy is designed to ensure that these enforcement actions do not occur at nor are focused on sensitive locations such as schools and churches,” ICE’s “Sensitive Locations” policy post still states.

CBP's "Sensitive Locations FAQ" list of safe zones is so extensive that just about any illegal alien can escape arrest as long as they follow these simple rules, as CBP explains - providing a virtual “how-to” guide for illegals

Locations covered by these policies would include, but not be limited to:

  • Schools, such as known and licensed daycares, pre-schools and other early learning programs; primary schools; secondary schools; post-secondary schools up to and including colleges and universities; as well as scholastic or education-related activities or events, and school bus stops that are marked and/or known to the officer, during periods when school children are present at the stop;
  • Medical treatment and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities;
  • Places of worship, such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples;
  • Religious or civil ceremonies or observances, such as funerals and weddings; and
  • During public demonstration, such as a march, rally, or parade.

So, just almost any illegal alien can escape arrest as long as they either walk with a second person (a march), attend some type of class, or can find a nearby church, medical facility or school bus stop.

The CBP website also provides a toll-free number and email address to enable illegal aliens report immigration enforcement efforts taking place at any of the “sensitive locations.”

DHS’s safe zone policy was first exposed last August in a blog by, which drew national attention to the issue.

Is this a mere oversight by an overwhelmed Webmaster, or is the safe zone policy still in force? Either way, these government websites are still giving how-to advice to illegal aliens who want to violate U.S. immigration law.
