Let’s talk about this week….

What ICE did and did not do for kids left behind by Mississippi raids

The cruelty made the administration happy.  tRump is praising it.  Not one has said anything about caring for the children.  The children mean nothing to them.  The idea of harming the adult brown people was what they were trying to do.   No one was lining up for those jobs.  That kind of treatment and working conditions.   These people were working and part of the community.  They were harming no one.  They were paying taxes.   Yet the children were harmed, the trauma of this will be with them all their lives.  Imagine the insecurity of your parents being gone when you get home from school as a 1st  or 2nd grader.  Or being told you need to stay at school or go with strangers to a local gym for the night.  How many kids have cried “I want to go home”.   Again if you abandoned your grade school child to go shopping you would be charged with child abuse, but the government gets a pass for doing it?  Damn tRump and all his administration.   Hugs

In the wake of the largest-ever immigration raid in a single state, child welfare services were left grappling with children who came home from school to find their parents had been arrested at one of the seven Mississippi food processing plants targeted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Wednesday.

The agency said it took some precautions to ease the burden on families, but as one ICE official said, “We are a law enforcement agency, not a social services agency.” The official said that any advance notice to welfare agencies or schools could have alerted undocumented immigrants to the raid and botched the operation.

“But I want people to know that if they come into the United States illegally, they are getting out,” Trump added. “They’re going to be brought out. And this serves as a very good deterrent.”

“And when people see what they saw yesterday, and like they will they’ll see for a long time, they’ll know that they’re not staying here,” the president said.

Stephen Miller wants Border Patrol, not asylum officers, to determine migrant asylum claims

In the same email, the National Security Council official said, “My mantra has persistently been presenting aliens with multiple unsolvable dilemmas to impact their calculus for choosing to make the arduous journey to begin with.”

But the emails obtained by NBC News suggest Miller and others in the Trump administration have another motive: To curb the number of immigrants passing their credible fear interview.

The official went on to say in the email quoted above that “(Miller) might press for an answer on when the (asylum) officers will no longer be looking over the shoulders of agents.”

One current and one former DHS official, both speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Miller has long seen asylum officers as soft and believes border agents would be tougher critics of asylum seekers.

A second email referenced other agenda items for Friday’s meeting, including a plan to deport Central Americans from the country without a trial in the way only immigrants from contiguous countries are removed now.

the suffering is the point. This is pure hate

more than 900 more children harmed by the US government kidnapping

This is kidnapping and child trafficking.

Taking children from their parents over an alleged misdemeanor is barbaric. What ever happened to due process? These are not felonies.

For those who troll and say they are ‘illegal’, so is a parking ticket or driving 56 in a 55 limit. You don’t take kids away for those misdemeanors!!!!

Branding migrants ‘illegal’ while this asshole is squatting in the Oval Office, working with Russians and obstructing his own FBI investigation is just too much bullshit for us to bear.

Trump belongs at The Hague on trial for crimes against humanity.

Border Patrol Detained a 9-Year-Old American Girl on Her Way to School for 32 Hours It didn’t matter that she had her U.S. passport with her.

I do not look like my state issued drivers license.  My picture was taken when I had a much more full face, no beard or facial hair, and very long hair way past my shoulders.   I get funny looks when I go to vote but because I am an older white man no one says anything to me about it.  I use that ID when ever one is needed and no one has a problem that I do not look like the picture.   Yet here a person stopped a 9 year old and held her for 32 hours “because she did not look like her picture”.  Racism, bigotry, and fascism is alive and well in the US.   Hugs

As the Morning News reports, Galicia’s detention “appears to have been a bureaucratic mix up,” caused by an application for a Mexican visa to visit the U.S. filled out in his name. Galicia told the paper that he was held with 60 other men and not allowed to shower for the 23 days he was held, and by the time he was released he had lost 26 pounds. “It was inhumane how they treated us,” he said. “It got to the point where I was ready to sign a deportation paper just to not be suffering there anymore. I just needed to get out of there.”

The broad strokes of Galicia’s story, a U.S. citizen held by immigration authorities and threatened with deportation because of paperwork, is shockingly common. Peter Sean Brown, a Philadelphia man with the same name as an immigrant, was held for weeks and nearly deported to Jamaica. Officials weren’t swayed by his state-issued IDs that are only available to people with social security numbers. And in March of this year, 9-year-old Julia Medina was detained by CBP for 32 hours despite her being a U.S. citizen.

Though she’s an American, Medina’s family lives in Tijuana, and they cross the border each morning to get to school. On a Monday morning, CBP detained her and her 14-year-old brother, Oscar, saying she didn’t look like the photo in her passport, according to NBC San Diego. CBP said the elementary student, who was questioned without her parents present, “provided inconsistent information during her inspection.” The agency reportedly had no explanation for why it took 32 hours to confirm her citizenship and release her, though in that time they accused her brother, who is also a U.S. citizen, of human smuggling and tried to have him sign a document saying his sister was his cousin. Medina was finally released after her mother pleaded with the Mexican consulate to contact U.S. immigration authorities.

In all of these cases, Galicia, Brown, and Medina had paperwork on them that proved they were U.S. citizens when they were apprehended. But clearly that wasn’t enough to prevent detention by an administration that views non-white people as suspicious. If a passport isn’t enough to prove citizenship, it’s not clear what people can do to avoid getting detained by ICE or CBP.
