BREAKING

Trump’s Latest Attempt to Bar Asylum Seekers Is Blocked After a Day of Dueling Rulings

A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction against a new rule that would have effectively banned asylum claims in the United States for most Central American migrants, who have been arriving in record numbers this year. It would have also affected many migrants from Africa, Asia and other regions.

2.5 billion will build about 5 miles of 45's wet-dream wall lol And, he'll be in prison so he won't be our next president. Stay here and watch the trial, it'll be a hoot.

I wonder if the owners/employers of these fruit farms get arrested as well.


Sad that some of the children of the undocumented, had no one to pick them up from school, when their parents were seized. Many of their parents have been here for more than 10 years, no record of crimes. Something better has to be done. They can’t just break up families and leave the children without no one. They’re being arrested just for the crime of working to feed their families, and at the same time, many of them making small wages.

If they’ve been here for at least 10 years, no record, then at least, try to set them up on a legal pathway to citizenship, especially if they have children here already. There has to be a better way.

ICE agents raid Miss. work sites, arrest 680 people in largest single-state immigration enforcement action in U.S. history


“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents swept through seven work sites in six cities across Mississippi on Wednesday, arresting approximately 680 people the agency said were undocumented immigrants in what officials said is the largest single-state workplace enforcement action in U.S. history.

The raids targeted agricultural processing plants, part of a year-long investigation into illegal employment of immigrants in the state, officials said. They did not say how many individuals they were targeting in the operations, nor what proportion of those taken into custody were what ICE calls “collateral” arrests — those who were swept up along with those ICE was seeking.

ICE acting director Matthew Albence said at a news conference in Jackson, Miss., that some of those arrested will be prosecuted for crimes, others will be swiftly deported, and some will be released pending immigration court hearings. Albence said the raids were part of normal ICE operations that seek to enforce U.S. immigration.”

That's always been my issue- the employers who have in many cases exploited these undocumented workers, and made higher profits by doing so and probably paying them a lower wage, how come THEY are never held responsible, but hard-working people who are doing anything to feed their families are the ones arrested and demonized, especially by the Right ?

Well, most of them are white Republicans so I highly doubt they faced any penalties at all.

Of course, now they don't have their labor force.

Oh yeah, I can believe that. Sadly we are seeing so many children of undocumented workers, ending up in child care services, because their parents are taken away. There has to be a way they can reconnect these children with their parents/family members. Especially those children who were born here as American citizens, and now have to experience losing their parents at no fault of their own. It’s heartbreaking seeing the kids cry.

There’s a war on Latinos based on the fear of them becoming a majority population in America, in the near future. I wonder if the same will happen to the next group that may be the possible majority, in the future, like Asians, because their population is increasing as well in America.

This report is from 2017:
https://www.pewresearch.o...americans/


SEPTEMBER 8, 2017
Key facts about Asian Americans, a diverse and growing population

BY GUSTAVO LÓPEZ, NEIL G. RUIZ AND EILEEN PATTEN


“The U.S. Asian population grew 72% between 2000 and 2015 (from 11.9 million to 20.4 million), the fastest growth rate of any major racial or ethnic group. By comparison, the population of the second-fastest growing group, Hispanics, increased 60% during the same period.”

They use them as cheap labor because they don’t want to provide decent, living wages, benefits to those who are Americans and even to immigrants who have become American citizens.

Apparently the biggest chicken plant in Mississippi was NOT raided yesterday. But I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Tyson Foods is a big supporter of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump.

If they are doing working basically White Folks (especially Republican White Folks) don't want to do whats the problem.

It's not that Americans don't want those jobs, it's that the employers know there's a steady stream of immigrants, both legal and otherwise, who will take said jobs for a fraction of the what an American would need to be paid, and they won't have to pay benefits, workman's comp, etc to boot. Like 2elijah said, they get used as cheap labor because employers don't want to pay actual wages.

But very few demonize or attack those EMPLOYERS with a same vitriol, and in many cases outright hatred, that they reserve for the immigrant workers, (who are generally doing whatever they can to support their families). Wonder why???

Most people don't extrapolate the issue beyond people jumping the border. I used to work at a place that employed a lot of illegal folks and people who were here on student visas who weren't supposed to have jobs. I agree that employers need to be held accountable, but this is sort of a chicken and egg problem.

No, it's not a chicken and egg problem.

Ther very same people who bleat "Enforce our laws! Deport immigrants! Enforce our laws!!!!!!" lose their minds if the government enforces the "employer responsibility" laws.

Just another indication that racism is the base for all this. Deport the brown law-breakers; leave the white law-breakers alone.
