When I read that ICE was arresting parents picking up their children from school, I thought that was shameful. When I read about ICE arresting people at the hospital - either patients themselves, or parents of patients, I thought that was shameful. When I read the article about ICE arresting legal residents at a restaurant after first buying breakfast, I thought that was shameful. I thought, whatever your feelings on immigration, that all these things were contrary to simple decency - and you can believe my expectations were already low considering the conditions at detention centers.

But this? This isn't shameful. It's disgusting. What an absolute breach of basic morals.

'Shameful' raid on aid camp at US-Mexico border puts lives at risk, volunteers say.

Putting people's lives at risk? That's absolutely criminal.

They arrested someone coming to his asylum interview. I think that's the worst for me. They're not even giving people a chance to jump through the hoops they ask for themselves. It's a nightmare.

Call Senators and Congresscritters and tell them to defund ICE so that ICE can only concentrate on the (few) actually-dangerous illegals, because they don't have the funds for more? Though they'd probably focus even more on the low-hanging fruit of non-dangerous illegals then. (*spit*) So defund them entirely and let local police worry about who to kick out.

Mental note. I should call people tomorrow and leave messages to that effect.

But yeah. So much yeah.

True, but at least we wouldn't be financing them and ICE. >_>

I just wonder how devoid a person has to be of all morality and ethics to think that this is acceptable. I don't know how to relate to such a person.

This is why I'm afraid of leaving the country. Their freedom of pulling crap like this just makes me know that crossing back into the States is going to be messy. Michelle already had issues with ICE since her last name is so generic and she had to travel so much that she comes off as suspicious as a result.

Trump ought to be dragged out in the street and shot dead.

Mike seems to be better than Trump though. In Canada I am a Liberal https://www.liberal.ca/

Yes, disgusting. And a form of terrorism, though I don't care for using the word. But if calling things terrorism were somehow magically puissant, as some suggest....

I just hate all that's happening right now :'(

So, so awful.

Did you hear it took the Southern Baptist Convention three attempts to get a 2/3rds vote of their membership to denounce white supremacy last weekend? It only passed because a bunch of Gen-X pastors went crazy on social media. Just awful that it was THAT hard! :(
