Iranian Americans are being illegally detained at our borders

Last edited Sun Jan 5, 2020, 05:34 PM - Edit history (1)





BREAKING: US CUSTOMS & BORDER PROTECTION NATIONALLY HAVE BEEN ORDERED TO DETAIN & "REPORT" ALL IRANIANS ENTERING THE COUNTRY DEEMED POTENTIALLY SUSPICIOUS OR "ADVERSARIAL" REGARDLESS OF CITIZENSHIP STATUS. 60+ Iranis held last night at the US/Canada border for 11+ hrs / thread

The Non Detention Act (passed in the aftermath of Japanese internment) prohibits the detention of U.S. citizens without congressional authorization

Council on American-Islamic Relations release cites a CBP source that (DHS) "issued a national order to CBP to “report” and detain anyone with Iranian heritage entering the country who is deemed potentially suspicious or “adversarial,” regardless of citizenship status."

Department of Homeland Security says it is working on a response to allegations made in CAIR release.

CBP spokesperson has issued the following statement: "Social media posts that CBP is detaining Iranian-Americans and refusing their entry into the U.S. because of their country of origin are false. Reports that DHS/CBP has issued a related directive are also false."

2. and here comes the Islamaphobic racial profiling... that didn't take long.........

we had no qualms about putting babies in cages so i doubt anyone is going to have any issues with putting these innocent people into concentration camps.

How is this legal?

the next president should start ordering white evangelicals to be detained and questioned. the outrage would be so large and isntaneous that constitutional amendment banning this shit would pass within a week

7. This fucking numbskull hasn't the slightest clue that these families probably

were somewhat sympathetic to the idea of military action that removed any high-ranking member of the Revolutionary ruling force that's been in power for the last 40 years, but he just decided to flush all of that down his gold-plated toilet.
