When rump got elected, the gloves came right off for a lot of these people.


I had not thought of that, do you think this one here secretly hated having a Black man with that name as prez?

What I know is near 4 out of 10 voters believed they had to suffer under Obama...remarkable when you think how he literally saved us from complete and total bankruptcs and crash etc.

That is however an honest assessment, they did suffer, as racists it makes perfect sense that even if Obama had cherry lollipops fly out of his butt and he made every single racist a millionaire, they would still be suffering.

Dunno, but this is the same clown who sez the Civil Rights Act of 1964 made [certain] people's attitudes worse. So if that's what he feels, it would not surprise me one bit given his penchant for Obama-baiting.

Well yes. There are vote-"whoring" policitians and then there are vote-"whoring" politicians, I guess.

TBH I really don't care what these conservative whites think of Obama or how that mobilizes their current politics because you're right. The very idea of equality under the law is a moral affront and existential crisis for them. Post-WW2 and in the US, the gains of Civil Rights forced them to rethink what humanity even is. Like their forebears post-Civil War, they've never really dealt very well with it.

WNs and theocrats. The ideal government for the Russian Orthodox Church is theocracy. It's too bad because Orthodoxy can be really beautiful and the few Orthodox people I've known well or worked with (Serbian, Ethiopian, Ukranian) have been super-nice individuals.

These conservative Evangelicals who are now in bed with them over antigay/antiabortion and white nationalism would FREAK tf OUT and probably implode if they ever actually set foot in an Orthodox church. :lol:

ICE KEPT 92 IMMIGRANTS SHACKLED ON A PLANE FOR TWO DAYS IN 'SLAVE SHIP' CONDITIONS, ADVOCATES SAY - Newsweek

Quote:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) kept 92 Somali immigrants chained on an airplane for 46 hours in "slave ship" conditions during a botched attempt to deport them back to Somalia earlier this month, detainees and advocates say.

The plane carrying the Somalis—chartered by the ICE Air Operations division—made a pit stop in Dakar, Senegal, 10 hours after taking off from Louisiana on December 7. But the plane never made it to Mogadishu. Instead, after parking the plane on the tarmac for nearly a day, ICE turned it around and made the 4,600-mile flight back to the United States on December 9.

Interviewed by Newsweek, one of the men on the plane and an attorney for two others said ICE deprived the Somalis of adequate food and water, and access to a working bathroom, during their two-day detention on board, forcing them to urinate in empty water bottles or, when they ran out of the bottles, on themselves.

The Somalis also claim that the plane's air-conditioning system was dysfunctional, making it hard to breathe in the crowded cabin. One of the immigrants also says he and another Somali were hit in the face by ICE agents on board.

"We were treated like slaves," Rahim Mohamed, 32, told Newsweek. A diabetic truck driver and father of two, he has lived in the U.S. since 2002.

"We were shackled for nearly two days," he continued. "We weren't allowed to use the bathroom or get out of the plane. I was not given the medication I need. I peed into a bottle, and then I peed on myself. It was a horrible thing, man. I thought my life was pretty much over."

For Rebecca Sharpless, an immigration law professor at the University of Miami who has been following the situation, it was a gross violation of basic decency.

"If you shackle someone to a chair for almost 46 hours with very little food and very little water with no access to a bathroom, it's a violation of their human rights. It's reminiscent of a slave ship experience," she said.

ICE Detention Center Captain Was on a Neo-Nazi Website and Wanted to Start a White Nationalist Group - Vice

Quote:
“Deep down, no one really gives a shit about racism,” Travis Frey, who was then a senior employee at an Indianapolis jail, wrote on Iron March.

UPDATE 12:16 p.m. ET: CoreCivic has placed Travis Frey on administrative leave pending an investigation.

A senior employee at a for-profit immigrant detention center in Nevada was active on the neo-Nazi site Iron March and aspired to establish a white nationalist chapter in his area.

Travis Frey, 31, is currently employed as a captain at the Nevada Southern Detention Center, which is run by private prison behemoth CoreCivic and contracted with ICE.

Frey joined Iron March in 2013, and posted at least a dozen times between 2016 and 2017 while he was working as head of security at a CoreCivic jail in Indianapolis, which was also authorized to house detainees on behalf of ICE.

The archives of the now-defunct website were leaked online in November, offering a glimpse into the early organizational efforts driving the modern, international white nationalist movement. The foundations of violent neo-Nazi groups such as Atomwaffen were established in Iron March chats, and white nationalist leaders like Matthew Heimbach have said they were radicalized by the time they spent on the site.

On Iron March, Frey used the screen name “In Hoc Signo Vinces,” a Latin phrase that’s used by military outfits around the world, and by universities, and was the title of the American Nazi Party’s manifesto. VICE News was able to identify Frey, who served in the Marines between 2006 and 2008, through some of the personal information he provided on Iron March, including his personal email address, phone number, birthday, and place of residence at the time he was writing on Iron March (which was Carmel, Indiana).

In one post from November 2016, Frey wrote that “any ‘man’ who gets that upset about ‘virulent racism’ couldn’t knock out a tooth even if I tied my hands behind my back.”

“Deep down no one really gives a shit about racism,” Frey wrote. “This is just empty signaling from this faggot.” (It’s unclear what or who he’s referring to.)

Expect ICE to visit, MIT tells faculty and staff, urging cooperation with visa checks - Boston Globe

Quote:
MIT on Thursday alerted its faculty and administrators that they should expect visits from federal immigration officials to check the status of foreign postdoctoral students, researchers, and visiting scholars working in the sciences, and urged them to cooperate with authorities.

The memo, which was sent faculty-wide, comes at the time of increased anxiety on campuses about foreign scientists and scholars, and it took some at MIT by surprise.

MIT officials said the memo was aimed at educating the faculty about the potential visits and that they will be sharing similar information with the foreign scholars. But MIT stressed it remains committed to engaging with scholars from across the world.

“MIT has been clear about the value of our global community and of the free flow of scientific ideas,” Kimberly Allen, a spokeswoman, said in a statement. “We are grateful for the dedication, imagination, and perseverance of every scholar here at MIT.”

The two-page memo was sent by Penny Rosser, director of MIT’s international scholars office, under the heading “Potential Homeland Security Site Visits.”

The Department of Homeland Security and its Immigration and Customs Enforcement unit have started visiting “employers of F-1 post-graduate students,” the memo begins, referring to academic visas held by many foreign students.

Rosser told faculty and administrators that federal officials are likely to give them 48 hours’ notice, but that may not always be the case. MIT notified employees that immigration officials will probably want to make sure that student-visa documentation is up to date, but agents could also ask to see worksites, including laboratories, and may ask about how the university decided on a foreign student’s salary.

The purpose of a site visit “is to confirm that the employer has sufficient resources and supervisory personnel to effectively provide the training, and that the foreign national is appropriately engaged in that activity,” Rosser wrote.


DHS is trash.

The Trump Administration Weakens Standards for ICE Detention Facilities - ACLU

Quote:
The new immigration detention standards set by the Trump administration weaken critical protections and lower oversight requirements. The consequences for the health and safety of people who are detained could be disastrous.

Last month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officially released a new version of its National Detention Standards (NDS), which govern the treatment of immigrant detainees held in almost 140 facilities in 44 states. These facilities include local and state jails and prisons — some operated by private prison companies — under contract with ICE. Despite being considered “civil detention,” almost 20 percent of ICE detainees are held in these jails and prisons, many of which are located in remote, rural locations.

ICE describes its revisions to the NDS as a set of “streamlined,” “updated, modernized standards.” In reality, the new NDS weakens critical protections and lowers oversight requirements, which could have disastrous consequences for the health and safety of thousands of people in immigration detention.

ICE’s own Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office recently noted that ICE has “systematically provided inadequate medical and mental health care and oversight to immigration detainees in facilities throughout the U.S.” Yet, ICE’s new NDS has removed even basic, minimal safeguards necessary for adequate medical care. ICE no longer requires facilities governed by the NDS to maintain current accreditation with the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC).

Also gone is the requirement that health assessments of detainees be performed according to national correctional standards. It’s important to remember that the journey to the U.S. is arduous — many people arrive in poor health, and at least 16 people died in ICE custody in 2018 and 2019. These health assessments, which already lack rigor, are a critical life-saving mechanism.

Although ICE has come under fire for inadequate medical and mental health staffing, the new NDS no longer requires health care and medical facilities at these jails to be under the direction of a licensed physician, but instead a “Health Services Administrator.” Congress has called for greater oversight of deaths in immigration detention, but ICE has now weakened reporting and record-keeping requirements in the event of a detainee’s death at these facilities.

The new NDS further weakens protections for immigrant detainees against the use of force and solitary confinement by officers. The prior version of the NDS barred officers from the use of “hog-tying, fetal restraints, tight restraints, improperly applied” against immigrant detainees — but this restriction is now eliminated. Facilities are no longer explicitly required to store use-of-force equipment securely. The new NDS broadens allowable reasons to place a detainee in solitary confinement and has removed specific protections for detainees in disciplinary proceedings facing solitary confinement. Medical staff at these facilities may now place detainees in medical segregation (solitary confinement) for refusing examination or treatment.

ICE has also eliminated standards that help to preserve detainees’ basic dignity. For example, ICE no longer requires that hold rooms have toilets with modesty panels, and removes the ratios for the number of toilets per detainee. ICE has removed language requiring that new contract facilities have outdoor recreation facilities, meaning that more detainees could be held for months or even years without time outdoors as they wait for their cases to be heard.

ICE deported 25 Cambodian immigrants, most of whom arrived in the U.S. as refugees - NBC News

Quote:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement quietly deported an estimated 25 Cambodian immigrants this week, the agency confirmed Friday to NBC News.

The group, which largely consisted of individuals who arrived in the country legally as refugees after the Vietnam War but have been convicted of crimes, left for Cambodia on Monday. This was the first round of repatriations this year, even as deportations in the Southeast Asian community have significantly increased under the Trump administration.

Kevin Lo, a staff attorney at the civil rights organization Asian Americans Advancing Justice – ALC, described the deportations as part of “the ongoing attacks by the Trump administration on this vulnerable immigrant population.”

“We expect ICE to conduct nationwide raids on this community again in the near future,” he said.

ICE ups ante in standoff with NYC: 'This is not a request'

NEW YORK -- Federal authorities are turning to a new tactic in the escalating conflict over New York City's so-called sanctuary policies, issuing four “immigration subpoenas” to the city for information about inmates wanted for deportation.

“This is not a request — it's a demand,” Henry Lucero, a senior U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official, told The Associated Press. “This is a last resort for us. Dangerous criminals are being released every single day in New York.”

ICE arrest in Hamilton County Courthouse ignites a political firestorm

When Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials entered the Hamilton County courthouse and made arrests recently, they ignited a political firestorm.

Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil said in a statement Wednesday ICE "arrested individuals" in "a municipal court," but he had nothing to do with the operation.

ICE: 4 arrests related to immigrants who came ashore in Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (CBS12) — Immigration authorities said Saturday four people have now been arrested, connected with the 12 immigrants who came ashore and were detained Friday in the Town of Palm Beach.

As is customary, it won’t be known exactly what the four people are being charged with until they make their initial appearances before a judge sometime next week.

FBI & ICE Investigating Rep. Ilhan Omar, Conservative Report Says

The FBI and ICE are investigating Rep. Ilhan Omar’s activities between 2009 and 2017, including her marriages to Ahmed Hersi and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Heavy.com has reached out to Rep. Omar’s campaign for comment on the allegations.

The Blaze’s David Steinberg made the claims in a January 16 article for the Glenn Beck-run conservative website. Steinberg’s reports have not been corroborated by any other media organization or any government agency.

Lawyers: ICE arrests trans migrant woman month after release - Brown County Democrat

Quote:
One month after winning her release from immigration detention, a transgender woman from El Salvador with several illnesses was arrested and taken back to the same jail because the U.S. government is appealing the judge’s decision, the woman’s lawyers said Friday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement re-arrested the trans woman Monday during what her lawyers expected would be a routine check-in. She suffers from seizures as well as symptoms of a traumatic brain injury and had been released from the hospital days before the check-in, said Wes Brockway, a lawyer with the Santa Fe Dreamers Project. She since suffered another seizure Tuesday, Brockway said.

The Associated Press is identifying her only by her first name, Joselin, because her lawyers say she faces the threat of violence and persecution if she is deported to El Salvador due to her transgender identity.

The case emerges as a group of congressional Democrats called on ICE to release transgender migrants “at risk of sexual abuse and assault” and to bring jails used to hold transgender detainees into compliance with current standards.

“Transgender individuals face persecution that ranges from physical and sexual violence to other forms of mistratement based on their gender identity and expression,” the lawmakers said. “This already vulnerable population faces a heightened and unique set of injustices while in immigration detention.”

Brockway argued Joselin’s continued detention is unnecessary because she had a place to stay and was not a flight risk. ICE did not respond to requests for comment Thursday and Friday.

Joselin is being held at the Cibola County Correctional Center in rural Milan, New Mexico, which has a special ICE unit for transgender detainees. ICE has said it made a significant investment when it opened the section for transgender inmates, known as Unit 900. Milan is 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Albuquerque. The agency also says it provides screenings and round-the-clock medical care.

U.S. set to deport Honduran mother and 2 sick children to Guatemala - CBS News

Quote:
Update: On Monday night, a federal judge in McAllen, Texas, denied a request to halt the deportation of the Honduran mother and her two children. The family is expected to be sent to Guatemala on Tuesday, according to a lawyer familiar with the case. Once in Guatemala, they will be required to choose between seeking refuge there or returning to Honduras.

New York — Lawyers and advocates are mobilizing to try to stop U.S. immigration officials from deporting a young Honduran mother and her two sick children to Guatemala, where the Trump administration has sent dozens of asylum-seekers in recent weeks as part of a controversial deal with the Central American country.

The 23-year-old migrant mother and her two daughters — a 6-year-old and 18-month-old baby — were apprehended at the U.S. border in Texas in December and are slated to be sent to Guatemala on Tuesday, according to court records. The family's lawyers say the two girls, who have been sick and were recently hospitalized, are in no condition to be deported to Guatemala.

ICE, judges deny protections for disabled immigrants in custody, attorneys say - SF Chronicle

Quote:
Lawyers representing undocumented immigrants detained by ICE allege that courts and government authorities under the Trump administration are not complying with a federal court order that protects mentally disabled immigrants in California, Arizona and Washington.

The order, established in 2013 after a class-action lawsuit known as Franco-Gonzalez, applies to detained immigrants who suffer from serious mental illnesses or disabilities — such as bipolar disorder and autism — by providing them free access to counsel. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is required to flag individuals who show symptoms, and those immigrants then go before a judge for a competency hearing to determine if they qualify for protections.

Acting ICE director confirms DACA recipients will be targeted if Supreme Court ends program

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is set on deporting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients should the Supreme Court rule in favor of the Trump administration this year and end the program, the agency’s acting director, Matthew Albence, confirmed on Thursday. “Those individuals may have DACA,” he warned during a press briefing, “but that doesn’t prevent us from going through the removal process, such that the individual, at the end of that process if they get ordered removed and DACA is done away with by the Supreme Court, we can actually effectuate those removal orders.”

As advocates have noted before, impeached President Donald Trump is hoping the court finishes his dirty work for him and terminates the popular program, which protects 700,000 young immigrants nationally. His mass deportation agents have already been preparing for the ruling they want: CNN reported last month that ICE officials have reopened the “long-closed” cases of over a dozen DACA recipients.

I suspect the court will end DACA but will leave in place the protections for the 700,000 participants on the basis they entered into the agreement on the belief it was binding on both parties. The concept they acted in good faith may protect them.

Palantir’s CEO Finally Admits to Helping ICE Deport Undocumented Immigrants - Motherboard/Vice

Quote:
In a CNBC interview at Davos, Palantir CEO Alex Karp admitted that his company “[finds] people in our country who are undocumented.” For years, Palantir has attempted to deny or downplay any role in those operations by pointing to the two wings of ICE, which deal with “criminal investigations” and immigration enforcement.

Palantir, a technology company founded by Karp and Peter Thiel, has contracts with the Pentagon, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Homeland Security. Last year alone, Palantir secured $1.5 billion in new federal government contracts. But it has faced the most scrutiny over its contracts with ICE.

Motherboard has previously covered Palantir’s extensive ties to ICE: it has created an Integrated Case Management System, used to store data collected from vast surveillance networks and assign it to files on individuals or organizations. Palantir has also created FALCON and FALCON Tipline. The former is a series of software tools meant to visualize connections after data has been collected, filed, and analyzed, while the latter serves to consolidate data from tips for "link analysis" and future deportation operations.

This technology is necessary for the agency to operate and rapidly expand its raids. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Karp minimized his company’s role and told CNBC "it's a de minimis part of our work, finding people in our country who are undocumented, but it's a legitimate, complex issue."

Court grants preliminary injunction against ICE and restores immigrant assistance hotline

The National Immigration Detention Hotline that was shut down by the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) just weeks after it was featured in the final season of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black has been restored. Freedom for Immigrants (FFI), a California-based immigrant rights group, announced that the United States District Court for the Central District of California has granted its application for a preliminary injunction and ordered ICE to restore its hotline Tuesday. Created in 2013, the hotline allowed immigrants in custody to not only connect with their families, but find legal resources and report physical and verbal abuse. It was shut down by ICE Aug. 7; FFI filed a federal lawsuit in December to have the free and confidential hotline reinstated.

“For too long, ICE has censored our speech and invented imaginary rules to terminate our programs. Today, the court saw through this farce and restored our national hotline,” Christina Fialho, co-founder and executive director of FFI, said in a statement Tuesday. “This case should remind us all that the Trump administration is not a law unto itself, but rather accountable to the people and our Constitution.”

Border Patrol Will Deploy Elite Tactical Agents to Sanctuary Cities - NYT (may be a paywall)

Quote:
The Trump administration is deploying law enforcement tactical units from the southern border as part of a supercharged arrest operation in sanctuary cities across the country, an escalation in the president’s battle against localities that refuse to participate in immigration enforcement.

The specially trained officers are being sent to cities including Chicago and New York to boost the enforcement power of local Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, according to two officials who are familiar with the secret operation. Additional agents are expected to be sent to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, N.J.

The move reflects President Trump’s persistence in cracking down on so-called sanctuary cities, localities that have refused to cooperate in handing over immigrants targeted for deportation to federal authorities. It comes soon after the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security announced a series of measures that will affect both American citizens and immigrants living in those places.

Lawrence Payne, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, confirmed that the agency was deploying 100 officers to work with ICE, which conducts arrests in the interior of the country, “in order to enhance the integrity of the immigration system, protect public safety, and strengthen our national security.”



Don't be surprised when even more false positives than there already are get caught up in these dragnets.
