ICE detains ‘Dreamer’ after she urged Trump to protect her
Quote:
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A young woman in the process of renewing her permission as a “Dreamer” to remain in the United States legally was arrested Wednesday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after speaking at a press conference where she urged President Donald Trump to protect people like her. Now two Democratic senators want answers.

Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained by ICE agents who pulled over a friend’s car on a nearby freeway after she left a coalition of clergy members, civil rights lawyers and other advocates for immigrants at Jackson City Hall, according to one of her lawyers, Nathan Elmore.

“A path for citizenship is necessary for DACA recipients but also for the other 11 million undocumented people with dreams,” she said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Barack Obama began and which Trump has suggested he’ll continue.

....

ICE spokesman Thomas Byrd said in a statement that Vargas was taken into custody in a “targeted immigration enforcement action” after the agency verified that her DACA status had lapsed. A federal immigration judge will now “decide whether or not she is eligible for immigration relief,” the statement said

If you're a 'Dreamer' and you look at Trump cross-eyed, he'll have ICE pick you up. Because that's just how President* Trump rolls... coffee

This one has me very hot. This appears to be a clear-cut case of attempting to suppress First Amendment speech. I have a hard time not believing that this is a deliberate effort by ICE to "shut up" DACA recipients and chill their speech. She was "targeted" because she spoke. ICE is making a deliberate program to intimidate immigrants.

There is no reason to over think this thing at all. Its really pretty simple. OUR ICE storm troopers/Gestapo are just doing their jobs as instructed by their officers who, in turn, were told by their 'leader' to take care of the problem no matter what.

We keep forgetting that Trump keeps two books by his bedstead (according to previous wife and, possible the current as well). The books are 1)a compendium of speeches by Mussolini and 2)An English version of Mein Kampf. The man is just following a formula that has worked for others. What is surprising is that, apparently, Trump can actually read! <G>
