All Of A Sudden, ICE Is Conducting A Lot Of Raids

Submitted by: theman01 9 months ago in News & Politics


U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

The raids, which officials said targeted known criminals, also targeted some immigrants who were either legal or did not have criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration that aimed to just corral and deport those who had committed crimes.

Trump has pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Last month he also made a change to the Obama administration’s policy of prioritizing deportation for convicted criminals, substantially broadening the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.

Its funny every time I ran afoul of the police they seemed to thing that the laws applied to me. And I'm one of the white privileged class. What malarkey and so unfair.

Imagine that!! Law enforcement agencies... enforcing the law! Equally and without bias or prejudice. What nonsense! Surely one's skin colour dictates which laws apply and which do not.

I hope they don't come for me after all I do have a green card. Do you know all the crap I had to put up with to get it? Then even after I got it the government goons still locked me up for 10 years in a bare white room with only a 12 inch B&W TV set and some big head guy with a wig fetish. To make matters worse they only gave me a 30 gallon trash can to soak in. Oh now I am having PTSD flash backs...Think of my happy place... Remember soaking in the hot springs admiring the view of the sun sitting, Large ,Red and motionless on the horizon... trying to keep calm...

thezigrat Now some of you might be asking how I got my green card. Back in 1947 I was directed to work with a team of 8 paper clipped scientists who were the original ones to study the Siberian Object To see If we could improve on their Pulse Jet design. Working with them was NOT fun. They either couldn't or wouldn't speak much English and they would constantly insult me for not being tall, blond and blue eyed. When the Eight of us finished we had designed a new extremely high  altitude ram that would scoop Hydrogen from the upper layers of the atmosphere and burn it with Oxygen  in a high temperature plasma, (DARPA now calls it a SCRAM Jet) Very fuel efficient and exhausts only water vapor. That's how I got my citizen ship :-)

thezigrat Also if you are puzzled why 9 of us started the project and only eight finished it, 13 months into the project,  Klaus was being a bastard and I was hungry.

Gosh what a novel idea.  An agency whose sole purpose is to round up illegal aliens, is...actually rounding up illegal aliens.  Maybe next President Trump can get the department of education to actually EDUCATE inner city youths?

A great majority of "criminal aliens" are ones who wrote down a fake Social Security numbers when they applied for jobs. Very few of them commit violent crimes--particularly when compared against American criminals.

That being said, it will be interesting to see the pros/cons of all of this after a couple of years when the data has been analyzed. On the one hand, people who break the law and get caught should be punished in accordance with laws that our elected officials have created. On the other hand, this seems awfully expensive, and I'm not sure that there very many benefits to this. People who purchase real estate in areas where a lot of illegal immigrants might benefit since they can buy cheap land and gentrify the area. But other than that, what are the quantifiable short-term and long-term benefits to mass deportation of illegal immigrants? Do they really outweigh the costs? I don't think this has ever been done in America before at this scale.

bliznik "who wrote down a fake Social Security numbers". You say this like this is nothing but it is identity theft. Do you know how hard it is for someone whose SSN has been used to prove he's real ?

bliznik  Yes your right it will be expensive and will have unknown repercussions on the economy. Put that does not change the fact that (1) they are illegally in this country (2) if the last 4 or 5 presidents of this country had been doing there responsibility to this country on illegal immigration we would not be in this position to begin with. (3) The longer we wait to fix the problem the worse it will get.

casaledana Well, you're not wrong with anything you said -- there needs to be some checks and balances, but there's something about this week's raids that also seem odd in their execution.

fancylad They are arresting illegals KNOWN to have committed further crimes, the one Obama ordered to be released back onto America's streets and not be deported. Including rapists, drug dealers, DUI and even a few convicted murderers...

bliznik Obama sent back more illegals than any former president, so again your opinion is dead wrong. This sort of thing happens ALL THE TIME for the past 30 years but it is only news because HATE TRUMP ok?
 
Why did he send more back? because he kept inviting more in, and ordering them to be let in easier, and hinting at blanket amnesty (IF you were already IN America of course) so there were simply more illegals than ever under his administration.

A 'great majority' are non-violent crimes, yes. Sure. But not one of those criminals should be IN America in the first place. And a VASTLY disproportionate % ARE violent, and repeat offenders too, since Obama ordered them release back onto the streets of USA and NOT be deported. These raids mostly targeted the illegals convicted of further crimes, who could possibly object to that?

bliznik Speaking for the area where I live (South Georgia), the problem is bigger than you seem to realize. No, perhaps they don't commit violent crimes, but they still cause lots of problems. Driving with no license, and frequently causing wrecks. I've personally watched 20 Mexicans get out of a minivan that t-boned a car, killing the elderly couple in the car, all because the vehicle was overcrowded, and the driver was going too fast for conditions. Drunk driving. Getting drunk and stabbing one another. Getting hit by a car because they are drunk and wandering around in the middle of the road at night, while wearing dark clothing (yes, it has actually happened). Getting ran over by a car, because they are passed out drunk in the middle of the road (also actually happened). Drinking seems to be quite a problem, no? They are also here illegally, so are not paying income taxes, but are still getting free (government funded) healthcare, welfare, and their often illegal kids are going to public schools for free and getting free school lunches. All this, while they refuse to participate in the communities they live in. I say round up all the illegals, and send them back where they belong. If they have went through the proper channels, and are here legally, then I have no problem with them.

There's no way this isn't a coincidence, especially since authorities are resisting in sharing their documentation.

fancylad How about... these raids have been planned well in advance, some since before Jan.20? Says the guy in charge of ICE... so yes, there is a way. In fact? It's a fact.

5cats Well, if the guy in charge of ICE says so, it must be true. There's just a lot of odd things about this week's raids that trigger a lot of questions.

fancylad Yes, these sorts of things just don't get "thrown together" in a week, there's hundreds of people involved eh? That's for each individual raid, there's literally tens of thousands of people involved in this operation. Court orders needed in advance takes weeks, just that!! 
So no, this has nothing at all to do with something that literally happened 'last week' eh?
