Glad they're focusing on those "bad dudes". I'm sure that'll shut down MS-13 right away.

That is fucked up. You're denying history with that change. We going to remove the plaque on Lady Liberty too? Fuckheads.

Came here to post this. Reminds me of when NYPD got upset and threatened to not go into certain areas of the city and everyone was like "awesome!"

And considering our current climate of false flag conspiracy mongering mixed with incompetence, I have no doubt that at this very moment some genius in the president's circle is coming up with a plan for a Tijuana Boat Lift.

Help me out here. I get that I have landed in a parallel dimension, but there are a whole lot of those. So I need to ask a question to narrow things down:

I don't know, in my timeline Inara, rather than the police, responded to my many, many letters to her with an "Of *course* I'll marry you" so I haven't left my our bunk to watch tv in years.

I don' want to go all apoplectic derangement syndrome over something small, but booing citizenship ceremonies, a la Thoreau- what fucking planet is this. That's like like hating cat videos or something. Makes me feel like the number of things everyone can agree is a moving and noble sentiment is dwindling rapidly. Can't wait to hear what other previously good thing "conservatives" delight in tearing down.

See that's different than pointy. Pointy isn't painful, it's easy.

Too many terrible stories in this long but worthwhile article, so I'll just pick a random one as an example:
Traffic cops were not the only locals willing to give ICE an assist. Early last year, a magisterial district judge in Camp Hill preempted the wedding of a Tajik couple by calling ICE on the groom and his best man, who were led away in handcuffs.

The judge, Elizabeth Beckley, also called ICE after Alexander Curtis Parker and Krisha Amber Schmick showed up at her courthouse last May.

Sweethearts since high school, they had always dreamed of a glamorous wedding venue, but, impatient to tie the knot, they settled on District Court 09-1-02, a squat, uninspired structure with mirrored windows, sandwiched between a car wash and a paint store.

When the constable announced he would be detaining Parker for ICE, the couple was stunned. Though born in Guatemala, Parker, 21, had been adopted by American parents when he was 8 months old. At that moment, he was technically undocumented, with his green-card renewal being processed. But he does not speak Spanish or consider himself an immigrant, much less a deportable one.

Philadelphia ICE was in the midst of its second big enforcement operation of 2017, and federal agents rushed to the courthouse with their biometric identification device. At about the time Parker had hoped to be slipping a ring onto his wife’s finger, he was reluctantly putting his own hand into a fingerprint machine.

Agreed. For all that the immigration foes talk about supporting Dreamers, I think they really get a kick out of that kind of sadistic shit.
