Florida gubernatorial wanna-be Richard Corcoran goes full-blown Willie Horton | Fred Grimm…/fl-op-column-fred-grimm-richa…

House Speaker Richard Corcoran kicks off his Florida gubernatorial bid with a Trump-like appeal to xenophobia. South Florida, with its swarthy demographics, might not be so receptive.

READ! This is how you #Resist #ICE
"On the morning of November 16, Jose came rushing to these apartments after he got a call from an agent with Immigration and ...Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“He told me that he was here, he was trying to apprehend a suspect,” Jose recalled. “I was like, OK, I'm on my way. I'm the property manager. I'll be there shortly. And he asked me how soon, because we have six agents who are ready to enter the premises.”

But Jose didn’t see any officers when he arrived, so he waited by the back entrance.

Moments later, a few agents stepped out of unmarked vehicles.

“Yeah, they basically had the whole place surrounded,” Jose said, pointing out where agents’ cars were sitting in the parking lot and on the street.

Jose said he shook hands with the lead agent, then asked him for a warrant to enter and search the building. The ICE agent handed Jose some papers.

“And I was just scanning for the word judge,” Jose said. “I was making sure that it came from a court and was actually signed by a judge.”

Immigration agents often use what’s called an administrative warrant, but only a judge’s signature gives them legal permission to search private property.

Jose knew what to look for, and he handed the papers back.

“I'm sorry,” he told the agents. “In order for me to let you enter the premises, I need to see a warrant signed by a judge."

After some back and forth, the agents returned to their cars."

"On that November morning when the ICE agent called Jose, he hung up the phone nervous and shaken.

But his first thought was clear: “Call the hotline.”

“As soon as I hopped in my car, I just pulled up the website and called the 1-844 number,” Jose said.

“Hello, you’ve reached the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network ICE reporting hotline,” came the recorded message on the other end.

That call to the hotline started a chain reaction."…/he-came-face-face-ice-and-stopped-arrest

Rosa Maria is getting released RIGHT NOW. Just hours before Congressman Joaquin Castro was scheduled to visit with her in detention we were informed that she wo...uld be getting released.

The Trump administration wanted to use 10 year old #RosaMaria's case to make an example and scare undocumented communities. Instead we were able to show them the power we have to make sure that we can protect our families. This would not have been possible had all of you not made calls, signed the petition and got your friends involved.

One of the most challenging weeks of my life lies ahead.

I hope that YOU, my friend/family/ally, will join me in defending my future in the United States. The ...#DACA program is at stake, which means that I could face deportation if Donald Trump revokes it.

Do we need any more proof than this that our system is broken?

The National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA), through a partnership with La Zona Norte, seeks to build a movement beyond just our own cities and states, but all... across Mexico. This summer, we begin La Autodefensa del Migrante; a community project composed of popular-education workshops on Asylum, beginning with a international convening in Guadalajara, Jalisco in early September.

We will bring these workshops across Mexico to provide assistance to those working directly with migrants seeking protection. Relying on our personal experiences as undocumented immigrants in the United States, we strive to create spaces where those directly affected are the leaders of their own liberation.

You know the stories, thousands of migrants fleeing violence in their own countries are seeking protection in the United States. Often these migrants arrive to our borders without any information as to what their rights are allowing them to fall prey to abuses by Customs and Border Protection...

“If we are to be deported, at least I hope the government takes into consideration the fact that we have always paid our taxes.”

The money I send to the government might be used to deport people like me.

OH HELL NO! Who is ready to join me in protesting this.
