'Vicious' Deportation

Racist jackbooted thugs are being turned loose.
Terror and mistrust in our cities and communities is the goal.

We must rise against this because no one is safe now.
They will be coming for you next. For your political beliefs, for your religious beliefs or lack thereof, for you name it but rest assured they are coming unless we stop them.


Art Acevedo, chief of police for the city of Houston, shared Stephens’s concerns, telling The Intercept that implicit in Trump’s messaging were two false notions. The first is that undocumented immigrants are responsible for a disproportionate amount of violent crime — experts have repeatedly demonstrated that they are not, and Acevedo said his decades of law enforcement experience supported those conclusions. And second is the suggestion that local and state law enforcement aren’t already focused on arresting individuals who violate criminal laws.

“We are charged with keeping people safe from predators and from thieves and from violent members of society,” Acevedo explained. “We’re not charged with going out and wasting and spending our very limited resources booking a day laborer or somebody that, but for their immigration status, have done nothing that would harm our society.”

Rather than engaging in “political theater” designed to please its base, Acevedo suggested the administration instead listen to the concerns of local and state law enforcement executives on the ground, who have long rejected seeing their officers used as de facto deportation forces.

“Sadly, if these type of ill-advised, poorly thought out public polices were to go through — where they try to take away my ability to control the workforce, to control the priorities of my workforce — there are going to be unintended consequences and those unintended consequences are going to result in additional crime,” Acevedo said.

4. It's never the exploiters who are held responsible

 

Corporations, companies, businesses, and everyday citizens who hire illegally get slaps on the wrist if that.

We have a sick society that blames, condemns, and destroys the exploited, the defenseless. We have a sick society that has no problem with families being torn apart while those doing the exploiting and their greedy selfishness of illegal hiring is barely noticed.

2. Kick, and bookmark for excellent information in the Intercept article

...When asked what the purpose of the call-out for volunteers might signify, the official responded, “I can’t think of any other reason than preps for processing a lot of expedited removal cases.

Expedited removal is the process for deporting people who have come to the country without the proper paperwork. If individuals in expedited removal ask for asylum or say they fear being returned to their country of origin, they have the right, under U.S. law, to describe their situation before a U.S. asylum officer. If the officer finds that an individual’s claim passes a low threshold of credibility, then the case may be heard before an immigration judge. If not, Immigration and Customs Enforcement takes control of the case and deportation proceedings can move forward.

In its domestic immigration enforcement order, the Trump administration said the executive branch will “end the abuse of parole and asylum provisions currently used to prevent the lawful removal of removable aliens,” raising concerns among some immigration attorneys that asylum seekers could be prioritized for deportation. If that’s the case, credible and reasonable fear hearings would need to be held, and detention centers along the border could be one place to start, though it would still be up to individual asylum officers to determine whether detainees pass or fail their screenings.

6. In the words of Jim Jeffries on Bill Maher...

"Hitler didn't kill the Jews on the first day, he worked up to it". In response to Piers "I suck right-wing dicks for a living" Morgan saying their is no Muslim ban. This is just the beginning of their attempt at ethnic cleansing. If we don't stop it now, it is going to get much worse. First it's the Mexicans...

8. when Border Patrol

came into our community and then increased their numbers and built a high tech jail, it was like living with an occupying force. They drove through neighborhoods, watched field workers with binoculars all day, sat outside the Hispanic grocery store all day, attended every emergency call from state patrol and sheriff's office, pulled over all traffic leaving the Peninsula for citizenship checks, spied on people in their homes and more. They transported an American citizen to the ICE jail in Seattle because he did not have proof of citizenship and looked Hispanic. His family had to hire a lawyer to get him out - which took a while.

Their directive apparently had no limits until Patty Murray and our local rep. got involved. At that, they BP refused to talk with them because their activities were "secret." Murray fixed that in about 2 minutes.

One BP officer testified to Congress that they had nothing to do and it was a waste of money so the other officers seriously harassed him and his family. Another officer choked his superior in a meeting.

I fear for the future with these people. They want to use their power and this awful administration will not do anything to pull them back. They love their authority and will use it as they wish.

BTW: the local law enforcement agencies can't stand the BP.
