The latest leftist response to coronavirus? OPEN UP THE JAILS

You might want to stay locked in your home for the foreseeable future, but not necessarily because of health concerns.
It seems that the Left’s answer to every public policy crisis is more welfare spending and more immigration. We certainly see that in the coronavirus response. Now leftists are adding a third leg to the stool: jailbreak.
In their determination never to let a crisis go to waste in order to enact long-standing policy wishes, politicians and judges are considering releasing prisoners from prison. Cuyahoga County, Ohio, has already released hundreds of prisoners. “You gotta remember, the goal of this is to protect the community and the safety of the inmates. If someone’s a serious violent person, well, we’re using our discretion to make sure the community’s safe also,” said Cuyahoga County Administrative Judge Brendan Sheehan.
Bill Ward, Minnesota’s top public defender, sent out an email on Friday urging his staff to advocate release on behalf of their clients on grounds that coronavirus will be spread more rapidly through incarceration.
Activists are calling for this in New York, Chicago, and many other places. The ACLU has already filed a lawsuit to mimic this policy on the federal level, demanding that ICE release illegal aliens they believe are at risk to contract the virus. Never mind that if the ACLU were really concerned about the spread of the virus, it would support policies to expedite the removal of illegal immigrants so that they don’t remain in ICE custody and are returned to their home countries.
