Race Card Invoked After Pro-Illegal Demonstrators Arrested In L.A.

There’s nothing more charming than protesting to protect people who are breaking the law

(LA Times) Police arrested 35 demonstrators Thursday in downtown Los Angeles during a protest over recent actions by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, officials said.

The demonstrators were cited for refusing to comply with police commands after blocking the entry into Metropolitan Detention Center, at 535 Alameda St., said Officer Irma Mota, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. They were later released.

Here’s where it gets silly(er)

“ICE is an active danger to members of our community — both our community at All Saints Church and our wider communities of Los Angeles, California and the nation,” the Rev. Mike Kinman, who was arrested, said in a statement. “Its targeting of people for deportation is based on race and class. It splits up families, has communities living in fear and exacerbates the already shrinking trust between communities of color and police and government authorities.”

“Active danger.” Well, it wouldn’t if certain people were not unlawfully present in the U.S., wouldn’t you agree?

Second, you have to love the race card being played. They’re targeted because of violating federal law, not because of race. That’s immaterial to those who will say anything in order to make more Democratic Party voters.

    “Deportations based on race..” If those that they are referring to are Mexicans, then maybe someone should tell these rocket scientists that Mexicans aren’t a race. It would be the same as calling “Americans” a race. Too stupid

      Xenophobic card just has too many syllables for the lofos and doesn’t have the same verve as race card.

    You may even believe that, but deep down you know it’s not true. The trump supporters (Americans, not Russians) who helped him almost win the popular vote want the Mexicans gone because they represent a threat to white christian hegemony. The Mexicans are inhuman illegals carrying drugs, diseases, welfare fraud, rape and murder reviled for who they are, not for what they do. And certainly not because you are outraged because their existence here is a civil violation.

    trump may or may not be a xenophobe (although he has a long history of it, as did his daddy), but he used the xenophobia of rural whites to almost win the popular vote.

    trump double crossed Putin, now he’s double crossing white nationalists. He’s in the process of double crossing the Bannonista white supremacist (what happened to the Muslim ban??) America Firsters by befriending the Chinese, bombing Syria and engaging in military masturbation with N Korea. Bannon is now “some guy who works for me”, LOL. Once trump backs off tracking down Mexicans like the Nazis hunted Jews his betrayal of the white nationalists will be complete.

    The Russians and the white nationalists (the NuCon core) elected trump, now he has double crossed them both.
