Florida gubernatorial wanna-be Richard Corcoran goes full-blown Willie Horton | Fred Grimm http://www.sun-sentinel.com/…/fl-op-column-fred-grimm-richa…
“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."
NEW VIDEO!! to clear up any confusion there might be about DACA, the Dreamers, and the importance of passing legislation before the end of the year. Every day t...hat goes by 122 Dreamers lose their #DACA status so the time to act is now. Call 202-224-3121 to get connected to your congressman! #DreamActNow
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.
A drive full of resources from what to do if ICE comes to your house, what to do if a loved one is detained to updates on DACA ending (social security number questions, work permit questions etc) via @askAngy
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.
“If we are to be deported, at least I hope the government takes into consideration the fact that we have always paid our taxes.”
OH HELL NO! Who is ready to join me in protesting this.
