Despite the Biden administration’s new “tone,” continued deportations of vulnerable people demonstrate “a continuation of the same practices that happened under President Trump and previously under Obama.”
Over 80 local law enforcement agencies, from over a dozen states, have agreed to share license plate location information with ICE.
That new policy is the subject of a federal lawsuit filed in Virginia that says the Trump administration is using migrant children as bait to arrest their undocumented family members.
It was the largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid in the state since 2008.
If the root cause of this problem, the law-breaking companies, is not addressed then the problem will continue to plague America.
The bottom line of his orders is to give permission to ICE and local cops around the country to use their own judgment in enforcing this vague law.
Noam Chomsky says Obama “should proceed to what is in fact an urgent necessity: to grant a general pardon to 11 million people who are living and working here, productive citizens in all but name.”
By defending undocumented women and children from another round of deportation raids, Sanders continues to stand up for those who cannot defend themselves within our current system.
