Crack down on aliens
I can't find an article that covers it nationwide yet, but lots of smaller news outlets are reporting on this locally also.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/los-angeles-...d-arrests/

Quote:LOS ANGELES -- Federal immigration officials say 160 people were arrested across Los Angeles over the past week during a crackdown targeting “criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives,” CBS Los Angeles reports. 
The arrests took place in six counties during what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials described as a “five-day targeted enforcement operation” that began Monday and wrapped up around noon Friday.

Now, this is nothing new really, illegals who ran afoul of the law have been thusly arrested and deported for decades. Under Obama, only criminals were taken. Now it seems criminals and people who happen to be present are all taken.

There will probably be more on this, reports are very scattered as yet.

Obama wasn't shy either. In fact, Dump claimed to do what Obama was doing all along. It's just the usual rightwing narrative of the other side being soft.

Quote:Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

RE: Crack down on aliens
Full Circle posted a few, I think in the Immigration thread, including a Washington Post one that I read.

According to that article, it wasn't just people with records. ICE in Texas and North Carolina set up traffic blocks and in some apartment complexes were (reportedly) going door to door demanding papers.

Guess it's an answer to the question people familiar with Bannon have been asking for a week or two: What was going on while our attention was drawn away by the Executive Order and Conway's lies about terrorist attacks?

This is heartbreaking.

Straight up Idi Amin style.

The difference is that under Obama only the targeted, criminal illegals were taken. That seems to be not the case now. Anyone present is taken.

The door to door checks and the roadblocks are what's striking me as a rather worrying procedure. Especially in a country where you're not required to posess photo ID. So everyone could be taken in on suspicion of being an illegal alien. That reminds me of a totalitarian regime, but I'm sure that's what this administration is striving for in any case.

Yeah, I always quoted that to resident racists. Not here, but somewhere else where they're running more rampant.
