Thompson leads call for ICE agents to shed 'police' jackets, vests

Francisco Escobar-Orellana

This reality mirrors the experience of Black native-born Americans who face similar racial profiling by police. But they've also proven that our resistance is powerful and that the movement emerging across the country is just beginning.

Those sweeps haven't happened in years, Minor said.

Perhaps most important, Kelly's memos authorize the border patrol chief to begin hiring up to 10,000 additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and 5,000 more border patrol officers.

Becoming more attractive to the bad element not only creates public safety problems for the community at large, it is especially unsafe to the rest of the immigrant community. Police Chief Keith Vogel said ICE officials told him the raid would strictly target suspected gang members, but others were detained and removed simply due to their immigration status. I was scared for my life. "I hate getting blown around by the wind". The department would first have to determine if there was a need for more personnel, he said, then bring the matter to the county.

Added Wilson, "I'm not into putting our resources into doing what someone else has prioritized; we have our own local priorities to keep us busy".

District spokeswoman Heather Crocker said it sent the message to make sure children felt "physically and emotionally safe" coming to school.

"This shows that he cares about the safety of all students, whether documented or undocumented", said Camila Bortolleto, co-founder of CT Students for a Dream.

Wilson said he's "not inclined to be an obstructionist with the feds". As reported by the NY Daily News, in a 431- word internal memo directed to the NYPD's police officers, O' Neill wrote, "The NYPD does not conduct civil immigration enforcement".

Democrats choose Tom Perez as party chairman
He promised to "convert them from demonstration energy to electoral energy". "The old guard, God bless them, they've got to go". Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is at the meeting campaigning for Perez. "We don't get a second chance", De Blasio said.

"But I'm not interested in (Glenwood officers) being immigration officers", Wilson said. "You're going to hurt the thing that runs our economy".

Police and county officials said they have been getting reports of people grocery shopping at night for fear of being arrested by immigration agents, and there has even been talk of people being rounded up and questioned. He emphasized that he hasn't seen the 287 (g) program implemented in municipal police departments.

No person will be detained exclusively on the basis of immigration status or on the belief that the person is in the United States illegally.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement used to be able to request that a jail hold a person believed to be in the country illegally. And they are arresting people at their homes and workplaces, according to Alabama immigration advocates and Baton Rouge, La., defense attorney Paul "Woody" Scott.

A form filled out in October by Donald Lombardo, warden of the Cape May County jail, said the Sheriff's Office wants to partner with ICE because of "law-enforcement issues" with the county's Mexican population and "particular enforcement problems" with Russians during the summer. The overwhelming number of undocumented immigrants is far more the fault of the feds than the undocumented immigrants themselves. Tanner said the county does not now participate in this model. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would be contacted if someone can not prove they are legally allowed to be in the country, the sheriff said at the forum, explaining that the person would be eligible to post bail and be released if Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not order them held. He vowed initially to undo Obama's executive actions, but Department of Homeland Security memos released last month left DACA in effect.

The number of Black immigrants in the USA has increased remarkably in recent decades and continues to grow.

Lost underneath the headlines is what all this means to the larger Black community in the U.S. We are here to tell you that much is at stake, and now is not the time to be silent or shy about it.
