SWAT-Like Immigration Officers Are In Boston, Ready To Cooperate With ICE Arrests - WBUR

Quote:
A number of specially trained officers and agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency are working in Boston with local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, according to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official in Boston.

The official declined to confirm the number of CBP officials deployed to Boston but did say they come from across the country, including the U.S. southern border.

"While some of them are trained in tactical operations, that is one of the many areas of training. These officers have also been trained in routine immigration enforcement actions which is what they have been asked to do," according to a Homeland Security statement.

In a news release Friday, the acting ICE Director Matthew Albence said the agency is utilizing the additional specially trained CBP officials in cities throughout the country to mitigate "resource challenges stemming from sanctuary city policies."

"As we have noted for years, in jurisdictions where we are not allowed to assume custody of aliens from jails, our officers are forced to make at-large arrests of criminal aliens who have been released into communities," Albence said in the release. "This effort requires a significant amount of additional time and resources. When sanctuary cities release these criminals back to the street, it increases the occurrence of preventable crimes, and more importantly, preventable victims.”

US border agents will pursue migrants in ‘sanctuary’ cities, including Newark - NJ

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal agents who patrol the U.S. border will deploy to “sanctuary” cities across the country where local jurisdictions are hindering stepped up immigration enforcement, officials said Friday.

The deployment of Customs and Border Patrol agents, some with tactical training, to the interior of the country is unusual and represents another escalation in the confrontation between the Trump administration and the local jurisdictions that have set up roadblocks to immigration enforcement.

Newark was also one of the cities where the agents would be deployed, according to the New York Times.

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence said additional forces are needed because people without legal authorization to be in the country are being released from local jails in sanctuary cities and counties before his agents can take them into custody.

Caller into Dean Obeidellah show on XM, Dean is a Muslim and lawyer, progressive liberal, etc...


Caller said every single thing I would have said in RAGED anger about FUCK you if you are a maga, that you are an ENEMY of the human race and will be TREATED accordingly...

Dean agreed with every word but in a calmer kind of way and said he wont go so far as to call all of them this or that, the caller pleaded with him to understand how that is now necessary...

Then it dawned on me, the caller was clearly a white/str8t/non Jewish/male and like me is the last person to have a target on his back; Dean already has one as a POC and Muslim...so it is easy for me and the caller to say these things, but we have to remember why others arent so quick to jump to this, they are UNDER ATTACK NOW...

If Dean goes into a crowd and yells MAGA are scum, he could be instantly beaten or killed...If I did it or the caller did it, we might still be beaten or killed but it would not be immediate, if you know what I mean.

I learned something.

I have friends who are bilingual, trilingual, who are literally afraid to speak Spanish in public not just because of the cops, ICE, CBP, etc. but because these self-deputized cop-callers who will do it just to f. with people. Earlier this week some kids at an away game in Santa Maria shouted "where's your passports!" at the home team players, perceived to be Latino immigrants/foreigners.

There have been multiple reports of these same types either harassing or outright beating up Asian Americans who sneeze or cough.

Dean talked about that too, maga punks beating up kids...

Like I have said, sadly there is no way to avoid violence...if justice is done and we win, they will be violent, if the election is stolen and the choice is fascism or...well, some will turn to violence.

guaranteed either way

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot responds to report of agents being sent to sanctuary cities - Chicago Tribune, video

https://www.foxla.com/news/orange-county-law-enforcement-officials-will-not-aid-increased-ice-enforcement - Fox LA

Quote:
"We are aware of the federal policy change,'' said Paul Eakins, a spokeswoman for Santa Ana. "The Santa Ana Police Department does not support or participate in immigration enforcement actions.''

Related: LA sheriff rebukes plan to send more immigration agents to sanctuary cities

Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department, said the department "never has and never will enforce immigration law at the street level. That is the charge of the federal government. Our duty is to protect the safety and well being of all in our community, regardless of citizenship status.''

Santa Ana City Councilman Vincent Sarmiento, who is running for mayor, told City News Service that "the Trump administration uses immigration as a wedge issue to continue dividing our country.''

"I don't think he or his enablers will ever understand that the premise of sanctuary city policies effectively create a safer environment where all residents, including the undocumented, can confidently serve as witnesses and report crimes without fear of deportation,'' Sarmiento said.

WOUNDS STILL WIDE OPEN FOR FAMILY OF ERICK DÍAZ-CRUZ, SHOT BY ICE IN BROOKLYN - The City NYC

Quote:
Erick Díaz-Cruz was supposed to return to his native Mexico last Wednesday.

Instead, that was the day he was released from Brooklyn’s Maimonides Hospital, where he underwent extensive facial surgery after an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent shot him in the cheek during a Feb. 6 raid in Gravesend.

The agents were seeking to detain his mom’s partner of 12 years, Gaspar Avendaño-Hernández, who had been arrested three days earlier on a felony criminal charge.

Carmen Cruz — Erick’s mother, who has lived in the U.S. for 21 years — saw the whole thing.

“It was so painful. There are no words,” she told THE CITY in Spanish. “I want justice for my son and for my partner to be free.”

The incident has traumatized the family, now thrust into a national debate over whether President Donald Trump’s targeting of so-called sanctuary cities has gone too far. As in dozens of localities around the country, New York City authorities decline to cooperate with ICE enforcement, with few exceptions.

Mayor of Newark defends city's sanctuary policies amid ICE crackdown - ABC 7

Quote:
NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- The mayor of Newark is defending his city's sanctuary policies for immigrants as President Trump's administration is cracking down on undocumented workers like never before.

The idea that ICE agents are targeting cities like Newark has made many in the immigrant community nervous about their futures.

"It's a lot of frustration, but at the same time, I see this as a moment to uplift and mobilize our communities," said Erika Martinez with Make the Road New Jersey.

It has been announced that ICE agents are going to beef up enforcement in places considered to be sanctuary cities -- where local and state laws are on the books to protect the undocumented population.

Cash-strapped Central Valley city weighs plan to convert prisons into immigration detention centers - Desert Sun

GEO Group are Trump immigration policy profiteers, and it shows.

Quote:
MCFARLAND, Calif. — A small, cash-strapped city in California's agricultural Central Valley is considering a plan to convert two state prison facilities into for-profit immigration detention centers. The proposal is forcing local leaders to weigh the private prison company's promise to continue providing high-paying jobs, tax revenue and scholarships for the next 15 years against the outcry of the community's immigrant residents, who are concerned the facilities would lead to increased immigration enforcement, arrests and deportation.

The city of McFarland's Planning Commission is expected to hold a second hearing Tuesday evening on the GEO Group's request to convert its two 700-bed prisons — Central Valley and Golden State modified community correctional facilities — into annexes for its 400-bed immigration detention facility in Bakersfield, the Mesa Verde ICE Processing Center. If approved, GEO would increase its immigration detention capacity in Kern County by 350%.

The proposal is the result of California's effort to phase out the use of for-profit prisons and detention centers. The state corrections department ended its contract with GEO for one of the McFarland prisons last fall and is expected to end its agreement with the other in April; that left open the possibility for the company to house federal detainees in the city. In late December, GEO inked a 15-year contract with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for Mesa Verde and the two prisons in McFarland.

DHS chief: SWAT-like teams wouldn't be needed if sanctuary cities would help ICE

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said on Tuesday that SWAT-like teams would not be needed to back up Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) efforts in so-called sanctuary cities if local officials there would help with immigration enforcement.

“What we found in these sanctuary jurisdictions is that local law enforcement does not work with the department,” Wolf told Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

ICE rejects California law, arrests people at courthouse

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — U.S. immigration agents arrestedtwopeople at a Northern California courthouse, including a man detained in a hallway on his way to a hearing,floutinga new state law requiring a judicial warrant to make immigration arrests inside such facilities.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents made the arrests Tuesday at Sonoma County Superior Court, prompting an outcry from criminal justice and court officials who said the action undermines local authority and deters immigrants who are in the country illegally from participating in the U.S. justice system.

Civil Rights Groups Sue ICE Over Northwest Detention Center

TACOMA, WA — The American Civil Liberties Union and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project sued ICE Monday, seeking the release of immigrants being kept at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, amid the growing outbreak of the new coronavirus in Washington.

According to a news release, both groups are specifically asking for the release of people in civil detention with higher risks of developing complications from COVID-19, including those over 50 and with underlying health conditions.

Immigration Enforcement and Open Courts Potentially Spread Coronavirus, Immigration Lawyers, Judges and Advocates Claim

The Department of Justice has postponed all non-detained immigration court cases. The announcement came just before midnight Tuesday night, after a NY1 story aired highlighting the potential danger of spreading the Coronavirus in immigration court. Immigration and Customs Enforcement still hasn’t announced any major changes to the way it’s enforcing immigration law. This is the story Michael Herzenberg filed before the Justice Department postponed the court cases.

Several politicians and many immigrant rights advocates are calling on the federal government to suspend all immigration enforcement activities because of concern the actions will spread the new coronavirus.

Reps. Nydia Velázquez and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demand ICE release detainees during crisis

Representatives Nydia Velázquez and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York are calling on top Department of Homeland Security officials to immediately release jailed immigrants, “beginning with all vulnerable populations,” from federal immigration detention facilities, where experts and advocates have been repeatedly warning a coronavirus outbreak could prove disastrous.

”Since your agencies have provided no clear action plan to ensure the health of immigrant detainees allegedly in violation of the immigration laws,” they write, “we have concluded that the Department, including both CBP and ICE, are unable to handle its mission under the current public health crisis.”

It's already been charted in this thread that ICE camps are a national heatlh hazard. Now ICE "detainees" are hunger striking. They need our help. Especially in this corona virus situation.

Immigrants Are Now on Hunger Strike in 3 ICE Detention Centers Over Coronavirus Fears - Vice

Quote:
Hunger strikes have broken out in three ICE detention centers in New Jersey as detainees protest what they describe as deteriorating conditions and a failure to adequately address the potential spread of COVID-19.

At the privately operated Elizabeth Detention Center — where a medical worker tested positive for COVID-19 this week in the first confirmed case at an ICE facility — at least one dormitory of approximately 40 detainees refused meals on Friday.

“They’re not taking any measures to protect us,” said a detainee at the facility, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals. “They haven’t done any cleaning. We spent three days without soap.”

The detainee said that the detention facility has done little or nothing in response to the confirmed COVID-19 case. He and his fellow inmates remain housed in a single large room with bunk beds, and new detainees have continued to be brought in from the outside.

They have not been supplied with hand sanitizer or any personal protective equipment. Guards are not using gloves or masks. He and the other hunger strikers are demanding to be released — or at least that no new detainees be brought into the facility.

“There’s a lot of fear, because if they bring in an infected person, we’re all going to get infected,” said the detainee, an asylum seeker from Central America who was apprehended crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. “If anyone gets something here, then we all get it, because we all breathe the same air.”
