Actions taken by President Joe Biden regarding immigration will make American communities less safe by leading to increased crime, a Maryland sheriff told "Fox & Friends" on Monday.

Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said that Americans should be "outraged" at Biden, claiming he has "dismantled ICE" by "basically telling the agents to stand down."

Jenkins made the remarks in response to a Washington Post interview with an unnamed official who said the Biden administration "abolished ICE without abolishing ICE."

The official cautioned that "the pendulum swing is so extreme, it literally feels like we've gone from the ability to fully enforce our immigration laws to now being told to enforce nothing."

Upon entering the White House, Biden signed a number of executive orders, some of which rolled back parts of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. 

Biden’s policy changes on the subject seek to encourage noncitizens to submit filings to immigration officials without fear of being immediately deported, and the new guidance that will be given to ICE officers will lead to fewer arrests and deportations, according to Fox.

Johnson warned that "One thing that's always considered in the deportations are the criminal histories, so regardless of the felony, regardless of the event, the crime, these people are going to roam our streets with impunity. It’s absolutely ridiculous."

He emphasized that "all of the strides that he made in stronger immigration enforcement over the past four years, they're totally being undone and dismantled."
