Immigration

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

Border Patrol struggling to hire, keep agents, but may never get 5,000 Trump ordered

... As the Border Patrol struggles to maintain current workforce levels, its greatest challenge will be President Trump's executive order from two years ago calling for the hiring of an additional 5,000 agents to seal off the southern border.

Since that Jan. 25, 2017, order, what should have been a flood of hiring has been, at best, a trickle. In 2018, the agency added 118 Border Patrol agents, with only three stationed along the southern border....
Most incompetent admin* ever, even when it comes to its own stupid and cruel priorities.

HB 370 - Require Sheriff Cooperation with ICE

The ACLU of North Carolina opposes HB 370, an anti-immigrant bill that circumvents the local authority of sheriffs by requiring them to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and assist in the federal government’s deportation pipeline or face financial penalties. The proposal is transparent retaliation against the growing number of sheriffs across North Carolina who have pledged to not assist ICE with targeting or detaining community members for immigration offenses. Sheriffs in Wake and Mecklenburg counties, for example, were elected by voters after promising to end the federal 287(g) program, which has led to family separation, the deportation of thousands, and greater mistrust and fear in our communities.
Repugs are so bigoted that they want OUR money spent on their rejection of the historic CON principle of local control.

Skilled Foreign Workers pass on America for Canada
Some time ago, rstrong made a really good point about immigration and immigrants, saying that countries ought to welcome those who actually show up because those are generally the ones who have drive, willingness to work, courage, etc. Lots of people say they're going to America, but it takes a lot of moxie to actually do it - and even more so now because Trump.

As the article points out, not only is Trump depriving American companies of workers they need, but by giving out signals of "immigrants not welcome" the pool of available talent will continue to shrink as people don't even bother to try to get in.

Motel 6 settles suit for $12M over guest names given to immigration officials

Motel 6 reached a $12 million settlement with Washington state on Thursday after prosecutors said the chain violated privacy rights by giving information to immigration officials that sometimes led to the detainment or deportation of former guests.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson said that the company improperly provided U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents with "Latino-sounding" names of tens of thousands of hotel guests for two years. Some of those guests later were detained or deported as a result of those targeted investigations.

"Motel 6's actions tore families apart and violated the privacy rights of tens of thousands of Washingtonians," Ferguson said in a statement. "Our resolution holds Motel 6 accountable for illegally handing over guests' private information without a warrant." ...

In a separate lawsuit filed in Arizona, the company agreed in November to pay up to $7.6 million to Latino guests who said hotel employees shared private information with immigration officials.

In Washington state, Ferguson said Motel 6 gave ICE information on a daily basis about a total of 80,000 guests without a warrant between 2015 and 2017....

That was fast. :wave:

Trump withdraws ICE director nomination to go 'in a tougher direction'

POSPOTUS is lying, as usual.

Vitiello’s toughness has never been in question. His tenure has been marked by extreme brutality and bigotry, just like POSPOTUS wanted. Instead, as is so often the case in the POSPOTUS admin*, Vitiello is so incompetent that he even lost the support of front line ICE officers.

I saw a story this morning that says the trump administration floated the idea to ICE of transporting bus loads of immigrants and/or asylum seekers to various sanctuary cities with the intent of just turning them out on the streets in those cities. The article states that ICE thought "it was a joke" but evidently was not. I figure this is the work of Stephen Miller with the approval of trump.

Well, the way I see it, this whole situation tends to betray the fact that trump says there is "an emergency" at the border yet he's making said emergency even worse by dispersing the "invaders" hundreds of miles into our country in various different locations and then is stupid enough to taunt the opposition party over his own lunacy. What's even worse, a lot of gullible nutjobs will agree with him. I concede there is a crisis at the border of record numbers of asylum seekers, turning themselves in, not sneaking into the country as is depicted. The crisis is lack of facilities to process or tend to these people, coupled with an apparent lack of interest in doing so from leadership. It's twilight zone shit.
