ICE Director Nominee: I Can Tell Which Migrant Kids Will Grow Up To Be In Gangs By Looking In Their Eyes

ICE Director Nominee: I Can Tell Which Migrant Kids Will Grow Up To Be In Gangs By Looking In Their Eyes

Politico reports:

Mark Morgan, the White House choice to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said during a Fox News interview earlier this year that he can judge the likelihood that an unaccompanied minor will become a gang member by looking into that child’s eyes.

“I’ve been to detention facilities where I’ve walked up to these individuals that are so-called minors, 17 or under,” Morgan said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in January. “I’ve looked at them and I’ve looked at their eyes, Tucker — and I’ve said that is a soon-to-be MS-13 gang member. It’s unequivocal.”

  1. How judgmental and incredibly disgusting. I wonder how he would feel if some Latinx told his kids/grandkids or anyone who looks like his pigmentation that the kids look like they’ll grow up to be school shooters/mass shooters? That would be using his own logic in his face. No one has any right to think someone is going to grow up to be a criminal.

    • Hello Ospreyshire. Yes! He would lose his mind. To many bigots do not see their bigotry as a problem but if they think it is them or theirs being discriminated against they freak out. It is stunning that this institutionalized bigotry has been wide spread in the country and not noticed by those not the target of it. I do not know how POC have not gone to war over this. The things I have learned over the last few years has shaken me. As a white male I never understood the depth of the problem and how openly it was being practiced. I feel ashamed that I did not see it sooner. One thing I think is good about this is that the problem is now much more widely know so we can fight it. Hugs

      • EXACTLY! Bigotry is irrational and illogical. If they hear a hypothetical situation or deal with similar things, then all of a sudden the world has to stop. Just look at how drug crime is perceived. When Black people were locked up for cocaine and weed, they didn’t say anything, but once Caucasians were hit with the opioid crisis, then they freaked out and didn’t want to go to jail wholesale like what happened in the War on Drugs. I do agree that most people in America don’t even notice these things, but I do thank you for becoming aware of them.

        That’s an interesting statement about “not going to war” given the righteous anger that’s felt in those communities. It is an uphill battle that involves layer upon layer of systemic racism as people fight it in different ways. Not that people don’t try which I can’t fault them for it, but there’s the reality that any POC of any race would never get away with the things that the majority could if it was the same thing which is sickening to me. Even I’m still learning some things that I never noticed before and I dealt with racial discrimination when I was a child.

  2. The problem with Bigotry began with W. Bush. But white Christians refuse to tell the truth. Why can’t white Christians blame W.? History will blame W. This is the generation that lost white American superiority. Now before all you white people huff and puff and blow down the rest of America and the world in fake wars. Who do you think helped the USA become the global dominant force? Those in the military who served. Unlike the 4 cowards who found a way to get away from serving, but are so eager to put all of you to War so that USA companies can earn millions, no billions but maybe even trillions every quarter. Do you and I benefit from the Iraqi oil fields? Nope. But W.’s friends at Exxon Mobile earn nicely from managing those oil fields. While USA companies owned by the most disloyal white Christians who have not only hurt you, me but also millions in the middle east. Why do white Christians fear telling the truth? Those same fat cats sitting in NYC started manufacturing in China as early as after Senior Bush returned from China in 1970. That’s when manufacturing was shifted to the Asia Pacific. First steel, then shoes, then technology and everything else. Now some 35+ years later, half of America wants to be Socialists/communists. What a slap in the face for our veterans who served in Korea and Vietnam. I was taught that we fought that war to prevent the spread of communism. But the real slap in the face is that while the Greed of Wall St. has raped Main Street, these companies push our country to $20 TRILLION in debt fighting fake wars while fat cats make money from war but turn on the TV and see how the VA hospitals can’t help veterans who get sick. The slap in the face is that USA corporations refuse to flip a dime, half dollar or couple of dollars to those who helped them achieve this global dominance. I know most white people are scared to travel because W. has ruined the credibility of white people around this earth, but if one does have the courage to travel this Earth, you will find American companies littered in both the Christian and otherwise countries around the world. When will the average American learn that the USA gave economic secrets to China? Are white people scared to admit this also? All of a sudden China just became an economic power right? Unfortunately, most of America is uneducated. I guess that’s why the fat cats have taken advantage of you stupid idiots. I hope that white Christians will murder me. Don’t I sound like a faggot Muslim. I want to be the modern day Benedict Arnold. Can’t all of you white people see that I’m a traitor? No I am not a coward like you white Christians. I can tell the truth. Your leaders have cheated you. And they raped me by attacking me in my back. Now I’m taking the knife out, and I’m thinking about stabbing this country. Diversity can be achieved anywhere on this Earth. If white people don’t want diversity, then white people don’t have to be part of the diversity. If it takes 240 years to learn this, or if it takes 2,000 years for Christians to lead the world, but can’t follow their own teachings – to be honest, tell the truth, do good, etc…etc…etc… How sad. Christians shouldn’t lead this world. They can’t follow their own rules while demanding others to do as they say. Why would anyone do what they say when they can’t even be real? That’s life – we don’t live in any democracy. We live in a continual monarchy of liars. Please murder me white Christians.

    • Hello houstontexasusaisalie. Wow what a screed. Well I will try to address some of what you talk about but first let me say please don’t hurt your self and all actions to fight back should be legal / political. I do not condone violence. I am sorry for your molestation, it stays with us all our lives.
      As to bigotry in politics it has sadly been around since before the country was formed. LBJ said he knew when he signed the Civil Rights bill the Democrats lost the south for generations. Nixon started the southern strategy to use race to get people to vote Republican. As the party stopped growing and got smaller they needed that racist base more and more. That made them push harder into bigotry.

      I served two tours in the military. The military is and has been integrated. Some of the best units were all POC when the military first allowed POC to join.

      Corporate greed has had a horrible effect on our nation and the people here. The US says big corporations have a duty to increase profit so they buy / make their products where they can do so cheapest and that is not the US. China and the Soviet Union were very good at industrial espionage. Look how quickly the U.S.S.R. got the atomic bomb.

      OK that is all I can address this morning. Please take care of your self. Be well. Hugs
