It is similar as "It is John." "It is Jane.", you use it and not he or she. You can even say "It is them.".
It is this kind of "to"/"it". It has even more use cases in Czech.
However, in this particular sentence without any context given, I could also imagine a translation with "Tamti/Tamhleti" even with "Ti". That is even closer to the original "These". In this case the "ti" is not the plural of "to" (plural of to is ta).
Consider: "There are fellow citizens among us who did cruel acts. Those are not people." "Jsou mezi námi spoluobčané, kteří konali kruté skutky. Ti nejsou lidé.".
