OUTRAGEOUS! - ICE RESPONDS TO COMPLAINTS OF SUBSTANDARD FACILITY BY SHIPPING DETAINEES ALL OVER COUNTRY

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

Maybe those pesky immigrants, annoying civil rights lawyers and nosy reporters will mind their own business next time.



Immigration and Customs Enforcement shut down the notorious San Pedro Detention Facility (a facility with numerous problems including one particularly serious story I wrote about this summer). Two weeks ago the facility lost its accreditation. While ICE is keeping mum on the reasons, the facility has a reputation for being problem-ridden.



400 detainees have apparently been transferred not to one of the other detention facilities in Southern California (well, 20 were sent to other California facilities - how generous!), but to facilities scattered across the country. Forget about seeing family again. Think your pro bono lawyer is going to be able to help you (assuming he can even reach you)?



Here's a little example of the fun ICE officials are having acting on behalf of taxpayers:

Edgardo Quintanilla said he didn't know where his client, a deaf mute,
was transferred and he didn't know if he would be able to continue on
as the detainee's pro-bono attorney if the move was to an out-of-state
facility.

"It is going to be very hard, almost impossible, to keep representing him," he said.

Remember, this was all caused by ICE's failure to do its job.

    I never lived in Germany, but something eerie is happening as I read the immigration news in the US these days: Am I the only person who is seeing the similarities with Nazi Germany? The Nazis were surely ordinary people like you and me and they thought they were standing up for what's right, but look what happened. America had better step back and consider what's happening lest they repeat history. Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it.

    I believe in law and order, but I also believe in mercy. In the old testament, God told the Israelites to be kind to the strangers and aliens among them. While it is true that the border must be respected, people must be treated humanely and with respect. I fear that the soul of America is in danger of being lost.

    This is wrong they way they treat these immigrants. Most of them do not have criminal backgrounds. These are Humans we are talking about here, sorry the US is ok with treating people this way.

    Patrick, you must be living a misrable life, your post is a pure definition of hate and racisim.

    Well Patrick for all your wishes this will actually cause the opposite effect. When these people start to face severe poverty due to lack of cashflow they will cross the border again to support their families and if they get deported they will do it again because its either that or starvation. In the face of that deportation is not a bad choice for them, so be careful what you wish for...

    This is the shallow view of the world of the antis so narrow minded people.

    The Patrick troll is a masochist who thrives on abuse. It is best to ignore him. This was his reaction when Greg went to attend the rally:

    Besides, we should be glad that he has now learnt to read a newspaper. The NY Times at that! Hearty congratulations to you Patrick, your medications are working and you are making progress.

    Legal Immi....thanks for sharing, did you read some of the comments on this article? I cannot believe this is happening in the United States of America. This will happen more often now that local police is starting to enforce immigration law.

    Hmmmm I wonder how many of these criminals attacking the hispanics are huge fans of radio hosts such as Hannity and other anti's such as Malkin? Anyone want to take a guess?

    Here's one of the comments from the article:

    "Illegal Aliens criminally employed paid in cash under the table no taxes paid carry the money till robbed by their fellows on the street or the international bank network handling cross-border cash payments for a variety of nefarious activities. It is noted such robberies happen enroute to such banks, never enroute from such banks and money-transfer storefront joints. The Illegal Aliens getting robbed wind up further damaging our community by tying up ambulance, police, hospital, and other tax-payer funded entities. They need to be arrested and deported immediately they holler for help from taxpayer supported entities none of which they helped pay for. They are criminals, just as the robbers of them are criminals. Before applying even a band-aid find out if they are Illegal, and if so let ICE apply heat."

    So what should they do with detainees in substandard facilities? Obviously it takes time to repair facilities. So the options are to deny them their rights, and simply deport them. Another option is to move them to another facility (what they did). And another is to simply let them go.

    Hmmm, let me guess which one you support. We should just let the go, right?

    Can a detainee waive their rights and opt to be quickly deported? Or must they wait in limbo?

    "Legal Immi....thanks for sharing, did you read some of the comments on this article?"

    I usually refrain from reading those comments ... But Let me tell you something else .. I know an american white couple that are originally from Michigan but live in southern CA thru a very close american friend of mine . This couple were actively involved in minuteman founded by Mr.Cox in Newport beach, they used to have his bumperstickers and attend their meetings etc.

    This couple claim themselves as "libertarians" because of the libertarian view of 420(hope you know what i mean) but are law and order conservatives when it comes to immigration. They are pretty liberal when it came to social issues. But finally me and my american friend told them that they are not allowed to talk about immigration in our presence if they want to socialize with us , Usually they talking mean repeating what they hear on Fox news.

    This couples home was one among many homes that was threatened by the wild fires in So.Cal along with my home , I read the following news story and made it a point to send it to the couple.

    Well they can start by respecting their human rights under the US constitution since they are held here along with all the Human rights treaties that the US supports arround the world. If they have no reason to detain them they deport them fast if that is their intent. You can't just hold people without charges!!! And if their intent is to hold them then they should not commit the abuses that are vastly documented. Como on Roy even this one is a no brainer for you!!!!

    They can ask for volutary departure without pleading their case to an Immigration judge. A lot of the times ICE wants to fill a plane or 2 before they deport if not near the border and they detain them until that happens but qhile they are detained the abuses happen.

    This part on itself will tell you the reach of their intellect and criteria on important issues.

    I understand but I can not change someones opinion by questioning ones intelligence. Unfortunately most of the people base their opinion based on cable news(can be any channel) or talk radio where these high paid pundits put their self interest before anything else.

    Its a clear case where the war of the ratings and the target audience of these channels wins and destroys the Issue(immigration) by creating bias opinions. If FOX did not have an audience to sell this crap to they would be singing another tune. Its unfortunate that a lot of people watch their shows and do listen to them. Never the less that tells you that sometimes the majority opinion is wrong because its based on the wrong assumptions. Same with Lou Dobbs and all these other idiots!!!
