Promises On ICE

A New York Daily News
column argues "As much as one would like to take President Obama
at his word on immigration reform, it has become increasingly
difficult. Particularly when Immigration and Customs Enforcement
is still running wild and contradicting Obama's repeated
assurances that the agency would focus on dangerous criminals and
not on workers and families."

    I want to thank whomever is responsible for cleaning up the Tweet title and making them more businesslike. I was dreading reading another call to deport McCain's primary opponent or similar rhetoric.

    Here's a terrific article on Talia's victory in securing the release of a cognitively impaired man who has been unjustly detained in immigration custody for five years:

    If you click on the "photos" tab just above the article, you will see a jubilant Talia with her client and his parents, too.

    John Morton's March 30 letter disavowing ICE deportation quotas is a step in the right direction, but it doesn't explain why the previous ICE memo setting the quotas was obviously prepared with so much care and specificity. Mr. Morton's letter reads like that of someone caught with his pants down who is hastily trying to pull them up.

    The question is how such a memo came to be written in the first place. The answer seems to be that setting quotas for deporting non-criminal aliens is entirely consistent with what ICE has in fact been doing. The notion that ICE really focuses exclusively, or even mainly, on criminal aliens is just a joke.

    If any proof of this were needed, it would consist of a recent horrifying New York Times article describing in sickening detail how mentally ill and other disabled non-criminal aliens are being plucked out of hospitals in the Northeast and sent to remote immigration detention centers in rural Texas without medication or access to lawyers or their families.

    Many of these mentally ill people are then being simply dumped, the lucky ones at isolated gas stations or roadsides in Texas where no one can find them, and the less lucky ones in the streets of their home countries where their chances of survival are slim.

    What clearer proof could there be that we are dealing with an enforcement system gone wild, where the only concern is a cynical desire to make this administration look tough on immigration in order to attract restrictionist votes. Fat chance they have of doing this anyway, since many restrictionists are firmly convinced that President Obama himself is a Kenyan citizen who is in this country illegally.
