“Now Is The Time To Abolish ICE” – Zone News 24

Trending: Is Pizzagate Real? Part 2 of Our Investigation: “Out Of Shadows”

This Tweet comes in the wake of an article in Refinery 29, a publication which claims to be “a catalyst for women to see, feel, and claim their power.”

It had this to say about recent ICE raids:

Across the country, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is once again executing large scale enforcement actions against undocumented immigrants, detaining hundreds of people in what they are calling “targeting criminal aliens.” The agency is blaming the coronavirus pandemic on the crackdown, claiming to be focused on people who are committing criminal activity and causing suffering during the pandemic.
                                                                                                                          The arrests are widespread and, as of Tuesday, ICE says it detained over 2,000 people during the sweep: 63 people in Colorado and Wyoming; 122 across Utah, Montana, Nevada, and Idaho; 83 in New York City; 300 people in the Los Angeles area; and 125 in Central and South Texas.

“The aliens targeted during this operation preyed on men, women and children in our communities, committing serious crimes and, at times, repeatedly hurting their victims,” Senior Official Performing the Duties of the ICE Director Tony H. Pham said in a press release. “By focusing our efforts on perpetrators of crimes against people, we’re able to remove these threats from our communities and prevent future victimization from occurring. Through our targeted enforcement efforts, we are eliminating the threat posed by these criminals, many of whom are repeat offenders.”

But advocates dispute this action as a veiled way of attacking undocumented communities by calling them “criminal aliens” and fear-mongering. “A closer look at the numbers usually reveals that a bulk of the people detained did not commit violent or serious crimes,” tweeted Tina Vasquez. “ICE only highlights the most egregious cases in these press releases & the agency didn’t share the number of collateral arrests included in these numbers.”

I guess my question to Refinery 29, Omar, and the “advocates,” is this: should ICE stop apprehending violent criminals illegally in this country because others who are illegally here as well get swepped up with them??

Of course not. 

It’s insane!

And this isn’t the first time Omar has called for this.
