Trump’s deportation order “heinous” — and violates the spirit of our Constitution

❝ New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is vowing to protect children from potential human rights violations as President Trump threatens to deport millions of people living in the U.S. illegally.

❝ At a news conference Wednesday, the Democratic governor accused U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of neglecting its responsibility to focus on specific immigrants with final deportation orders and failing to pursue employers who flout immigration laws.

Trump on Monday tweeted that immigration authorities next week will begin the process of removing the millions of “illegal aliens.”

❝ Lujan Grisham says federal immigrations authorities have been drawn into political activities…The first-term Democrat says due process violations affect all Americans, not just immigrants.

Neither the Fake President nor the Fake Republicans who now own that benighted political party care a rat’s ass for our constitution or the rights of folks with legal rights under that piece of law. Long-held law makes it clear you need not be a citizen to embrace those rights.

    “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called President Donald Trump Friday night and asked him to call off the Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation raids scheduled for Sunday, a source familiar with the call told CNN.
    Trump pulled back on the raids Saturday a matter of hours after he spoke in support of the coordinated arrests and deportations that were slated to hit 10 major cities. Trump announced via Twitter that he would delay for two weeks US raids to give Congress a chance to “get together and work out a solution” on the enforcement of his signature immigration policy.
    Trump and Pelosi spoke at 7:20 p.m. ET Friday night for about 12 minutes, according to the source. White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere confirmed a phone call took place Friday night between Trump and Pelosi.” https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/22/politics/nancy-pelosi-ice-raids-house-speaker-called-donald-trump/index.html

    (Merriam-Webster) Trending: ‘concentration camp’. Lookups spiked 15,000% on June 18, 2019 https://www.merriam-webster.com/news-trend-watch/lookups-spike-for-concentration-camp-20190618 “Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the liberal freshman Democrat from New York who has made fighting for immigrants’ rights a signature issue, on Tuesday described the Trump administration’s border detention facilities as “concentration camps,” provoking backlash from Republicans who said she was minimizing the Holocaust. [Sheryl Gay Stolberg, The New York Times, 18 Jun. 2019]. Our earliest record of the term predates the Holocaust, dating from the 19th century.”

    This month’s damning report from the agency’s own inspector general, which rebuked ICE’s detention practices, only scratches the surface of their unlawful actions. (Government Accountability Project 6/23/19) https://thehill.com/opinion/immigration/449937-internal-dhs-and-ice-immigration-detention-practices-are-broken
    DHS recently released a controversial new report in April 2019 that recommends confinement and detention of migrant children and overturning the Flores standards to allow for indefinite, prolonged detention. https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/19_0416_hsac-emergency-interim-report.pdf Twenty-four immigrants have died in ICE custody during the Trump administration. At least four others died shortly after being released from ICE custody. The tally does not include migrants, including five children, who have died in the custody of other federal agencies.
    Immigrants held by ICE are civil detainees, not criminal, and their detention is not intended to be punitive. The Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general reiterated that fact in a report released this week (6.3.19) https://www.oig.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/assets/2019-06/OIG-19-47-Jun19.pdf
