Immigration

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

The petition to every Democrat planning to run for president in 2020:

"Lead the resistance to Donald Trump and confront his white supremacy head on. Block funding for the border wall and Trump's rogue deportation force."

Tell Democrats:

"Stand up for immigrants by standing strong in the face of the Trump shutdown. Refuse to cave on funding for Trump's border wall or the expansion of ICE and CBP."

Trump’s election stunt at the border cost US taxpayers $210m
Deploying troops to defend against a “caravan” of migrants was an election stunt all along. Now we know just how much America paid for it.


Trump’s deployment of more than 5,000 American troops to the southern border – a mission that cannot in good conscience be called quixotic only because at least Don Quixote actually believed the windmills at which he was tilting were real monsters – will cost American taxpayers at least $72 million, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.
I never knew that "quixotic" came from Don Quixote. :oops:
The real number is higher still, because it includes Trump’s activation earlier in the year of the National Guard to the border, which cost a further $138 million. That means that it is now possible to put a price-tag on one of the most bare-faced and cynical election stunts in American history: $210 million.

Trump only talked about the so-called “migrant caravan” – which he framed as an invading army, playing to the fears of White Nationalists by describing them almost lasciviously as “young strong men” many of whom could be “Middle Eastern” – in order to activate his base in border states such as Texas.
Thanks, POSPOTUS and other bigots.
The so-called caravan is an annual event, and is actually a group of asylum-seekers from parts of Central America whose lives are threatened and who are traveling together for reasons of safety. The ultimate irony, of course, is that the violence from which many of them are fleeing is the result of decades of American foreign policy, especially the drug war, which has turned much of the region over to the control of powerful drug cartels....
Thanks, Leo Lyons, other narcs, neofascists and anti-communists.

... In Jerusalem, Gerry meets Mossad leader Jurgen Warmbrunn (Ludi Boeken), who explains that the Mossad had months earlier intercepted communications from an Army General in India, who stated that Indian troops were fighting the "rakshasa", or "dead spirits". Warmbrunn also explains how the center of Jerusalem was walled in -- the wall is formidable, at least 50 feet high and refugees are being brought in to the quarantine zone, including non-Jews and Muslims. While Gerry talks with Jurgen, a group of Muslim refugees begin to sing joyously at finding a safe zone to survive in. One of the women is able to find a microphone and the singing grows louder.

:thumbup: but they insist on being paid in "Braaainz". Unfortunately, this means that we can't pay them in Trumpettes. For example, Trumpettes have not figured out that any wall can be topped by a human ladder, without any tools or equipment other than old carpet if there's sharp stuff on top.

Haven't they been doing any testing? Minimum wage teens could figure this out, even cheaper if outsourced to Mexican teens.

Welcome new Congress, here's what immigrant youth need from you

To: 116th Congress

As a Congress elected by our communities, we demand that you cut funding for ICE & CBP, pass clean permanent protection for immigrant communities, and hold ICE & CBP accountable for the inhumane treatment of immigrants.

Ladders to Get Over Trump's Wall

$159,337 of $100.0M goal

Update 1

Folks, our friends at RAICES have officially taken over the withdraw process for the funds that have been raised.

Over the past few weeks, more than 7,000 of you raised nearly $160,000 for RAICES to help refugee and immigrant families. Even GoFundMe donated!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

When @hoarsewisperer and I started this campaign, neither of us ever expected it to take off the way it did. We are truly humbled by the outpouring of humanity from folks across the country (and the world) for refugees and immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.

We still think the wall is a ridiculous idea borne out of the tragic fear inherent in white supremacy, and we all must do what we can to demand the United States be a society that doesn't turn away any human being fleeing violence and persecution.

A wall must never be built, and our undocumented siblings must be recognized as part of our larger American family and given the dignity and respect accorded any human being.

Speak up. Register to vote. End white supremacy.

Ladders, not walls.

Best,
Charlotte Clymer & @HoarseWisperer

An Alabama sheriff personally kept $1.5 million that was supposed to feed ICE detainees

Sheriff Todd Entrekin of Etowah County, Alabama, lost his re-election bid this year after he was found to have personally pocketed $750,000 allotted for feeding inmates in county lockup and using it to buy himself a beach house. Ethical questions aside, Entrekin's taking was legal under Alabama law
:headscratch:
— but a further $1.5 million he took home from funds for feeding federal immigration detainees may not be....

"There's pretty much no way that the federal government is okay with this," George Washington University law professor Randall Eliason told AL.com. "Regardless of what he argues about the Alabama law, if it comes to light that he's taking these federal funds that are supposed to be used to feed and house federal prisoners, and instead is putting [hundreds of thousands of] dollars in his pocket, that would be of great interest to federal prosecutors." ...
:---P

FYI, Etowah County, Alabama votes more than 3:1 for the Repugs. It's one of several counties in Alabama's 4th congressional district. "In the 2016 United States Presidential Election, the district was the only one in the country to give Donald Trump more than 80% of the vote, making it the President's strongest district in the country. "
