Dear leftists, I’m not buying the BS you’re selling…
Have you heard all the Democrat, Socialist and media lies regarding the millions of illegal aliens that are about to be taken into custody by Trump’s neo-Nazi jackbooted Storm Troopers?
Well, maybe not millions, but certainly hundreds of thousands will be ripped from the loving arms of their wives and children (and undeniably wailing uncontrollably) by ICE thugs, right?
On third thought, I’ll bet you a doughnut and 10 pushups that tens of thousands of those who entered the United States illegally now face a future of Hell on Earth as captives in one of Trump’s many Fascisti-insired death camps.
Despite the noise from leftie politicians and the DNC’s Ministry of Propaganda (AKA: The Establishment Media), the truth of the matter doesn’t exactly measure up to the hysterics and hype they’ve prophesized.
But before reading below of how many ICE is really going after, just keep in mind that these are folks who have already been through the judicial process and have been court-ordered out of the country due to additional violent criminality since their initial criminal entry into the United States.
As reported by KDKA (CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh, PA); (emphasis mine)
Immigration authorities are expected to begin conducting raids in nine cities today, targeting about 2,000 undocumented immigrants who courts have ordered to be removed from the country, a US official has said.
The raids are slated for Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco, a senior immigration official said.
ICE will not comment on operational details of the raids, spokesman Matthew Bourke said, but the department is focusing primarily on immigrants it considers dangerous.
“ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,” Bourke said.
In February, ICE sent around 2,000 letters to families who already had received final orders of removal by judges in absentia, asking them to self-report to ICE offices by March. The upcoming operation is expected to target approximately 2,000 people, the senior immigration official said.
However, there was one rather interesting bit of the CBS article;
Acting US Citizenship and Immigration Services director Ken Cuccinelli, who has confirmed the raids are “absolutely going to happen,” has said there are 1 million people in the county facing removal orders.
“Of course, that isn’t what ICE will go after in this, but that’s the pool of people who have been all the way through the due process chain,” he said.
Reading in between the lines, I get the distinct impression that Director Cuccinelli isn’t targeting landscapers or maids, but rather the likes of uber-violent gangs such as MS-13 and Los Sureños.
I also can’t help but recollect the testimony of Rep Chip Roy (R-TX) as he recently stated to the House Oversight Committee;
The congressman read the first-hand account of a Border Patrol agent named Sergio who was born in Texas and worked hard labor on a farm to support himself while his mother remained in Mexico before he joined the military and became a Border Patrol agent.
Sergio wrote the following in an article that appeared on July 5:
‘The last thing this son of Mexican immigrants expected was to be compared to Nazis by America’s elite for serving his nation and protecting our dangerous border.’
