Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

The Deportation Force is Already Here

Rate this Entry
We don't have to wait for President Trump as the "Deportation Force" is already in action, and anything Trump can do Obama can do better. Unfortunately, most Democrats have had their heads in the sand over the past two terms because they are unwilling to believe that their messiah has lied to them.

Via Reuters:

U.S. immigration officials are planning a month-long series of raids in May and June to deport hundreds of Central American mothers and children found to have entered the country illegally, according to sources and an internal document seen by Reuters.


The operation would likely be the largest deportation sweep targeting immigrant families by the administration of President Barack Obama this year after a similar drive over two days in January that focused on Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina.

Bernie Sanders issued a statement in response opposing the "painful and inhumane business of locking up and deporting families who have fled horrendous violence in Central America and other countries." He remarked that deporting women and children "back into harm’s way is wrong,” and he urged Obama to use executive authority to extend Temporary Protective Status to individuals from Central America.

Let's remember where Hillary was on this issue in the height of the crisis in 2014: “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns about whether all of them should be sent back.”

Here is the bottom line. Obama has been the most destructive President in the history of this country to immigrant communities engaging in widespread human rights violations using a law with Bill Clinton's signature, while implementing inhumane deportation policies that Hillary supported.

Hillary, now looking to capture the Hispanic electorate, suddenly opposes Obama's deportation force, but curiously remarked that we must "stop the root causes of the violence in Central America" that her own policies as Secretary of State helped to create.

But then again, Hillary will say anything to get elected.

    Perhaps Matthew will vote for Bernie since we are still in the primaries and the the largest state in the country has yet to vote. She has not won the nomination as far as I've seen yet. So all this posturing of well than will you vote for Trump isn't necessary. Matthew is doing a great service of educating people who haven't voted and care about this issue on her record.

    I can't vote "for" either of them, or for Bernie if he should end up being the candidate for the Democrats. Ultimately, I will vote against one of the two final candidates, which I suspect is going to be a common practice this time. I'm just not enthusiastic about any of them. But it's still too soon to form final judgments. A lot can happen before the election.

    The big deportation threat is the vulnerability created by DACA and possibly DARPA, something you haven't mentioned. President Obama is putting a target on their backs and making it easy for Trump to conduct mass deportation proceedings of an unprecedented magnitude. See my article, President Obama?s use of executive discretion could have unintended consequences if Donald Trump becomes our next president, (March 7, 2016), http://www.ilw.com/articles/2016,0307-Rappaport.pdf Ironic isn't it? Obama is trying to help them and he could end up hurting them more than the people who want them out of the country.

    While I agree that DACA/DAPA can give someone like Trump a "target", this already holds true for other programs like "prosecutorial discretion", and even arguably TPS, etc. The question is who has the will to actually deport, or the guts to really advance CIR. While I agree that Obama has been "destructive", the bottom line is that our laws don't permit everyone to stay. Until we have CIR, with clear guidelines (and some will not qualify), there will be criticism. Tough issues.

    Let's assume arguendo that Hillary is a shameless opportunist, totally without principles, who will do anything or say anything to get elected, but who is willing to work within America's democratic system.

    Then look at her opponent - a man who has made exploiting racial/religious hatred against Latinos, Muslims and even, to a lesser extent, Asians, the foundation of his entire campaign, something which in now provoking belated horror among many leaders in his own party; who bullies, threatens and intimidates his opponents, who has supported torture of suspected terrorists and murder of their families, who has no conception of the independence of the judiciary and who respects no authority or law other than his own will; who has spoken favorably of some of the world's most odious dictators such as Putin, Gaddafi and even Kim Jong Un; and who has shown a disgusting streak of personal hatred and cruelty in his attacks against disabled people, women and even war heroes; and who wants to use a special deportation "task force" (which Ted Cruz aptly compared to Nazi "jackboots" during the primary campaign) to deport 12 million people; and who wants to flout the spirit and purpose o the First Amendment, if not its letter, by banning the entire membership of a major world religion from our shores.

    With the possibility of someone like this having control over our immigration system and our entire government, not to mention the finger on the nuclear button, are not discussions over what kind of CIR we need, or over Hillary's various shortcomings, real as some (but not all of them - Vince Foster, Benghazi, etc. for example) may be, like arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?

    Look at an example from not so ancient history: In Germany in 1932, Hitler's main opponents, Paul von Hindenburg and Franz von Papen, were hardly the image of progressive liberal democrats. They were both aristocratic right wing autocrats and German nationalists.

    But if they had stood their ground and not turned power over to Hitler (who had won a fair and open election in 1932) the catastrophes of WW2 and the Holocaust would in all likelihood never have happened.

    I am not accusing Trump of advocating mass extermination or saying that he is another Hitler (even though Trump, has shown himself to be an expert in using Hitler's Big Lie strategy- only a small percentage of Trump's statements about almost any topic can withstand a fact check).

    But Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy, and anyone who thinks that his immigration policies would be based on anything other than his personal whims, including his openly expressed racial views, and that they would be determined by any sort of law, other than his personal decree, is seriusly deluding himself or herself.

    I will vote for Hillary Clinton or anyone else who can stand between America and a Donald Trump dictatorship.

    I'm voting for Gary Johnson. If the rest of this country freed itself from the two-party addiction maybe we would see some real change in Washington.
