ICE Plans Crackdown On Teen Gang Members, Which Is Apparently A Bad Thing Or Something

Remember the days when we were told by the pro-illegal alien crowd that they had no problem getting rid of the Bad Illegals Undocumenteds? In practice, they aren’t happy over targeting those bad ones

(Reuters) U.S. immigration agents are planning nationwide raids next week to arrest, among others, teenagers who entered the country without guardians and are suspected gang members, in a widening of President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigrants.

The raids are set to begin on Sunday and continue through Wednesday, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters. The teenagers targeted will be 16- and 17-years-old.

So, gang members. People who engage in criminal activity. Violence. Rape. Murder. Drug dealing. Terrorizing areas. Fights. Destruction of property. One would thing this would be a good thing. Uh huh. Not in Liberal World

The raids represent a sharp departure from practices during the presidency of Barack Obama. Under Obama, minors could be targeted for deportation if they had been convicted of crimes, but were not arrested simply for suspected gang activity or membership.

Sure, great policy. People who law enforcement knew were gang members and are unlawfully present in the United States, yeah, let’s let them go till they’ve committed a big crime.

Although children can be deported like adults, U.S. immigration law considers minors arriving at the border without a parent or guardian particularly vulnerable and gives them additional protections.

They aren’t arriving at the border: they’re already here. One also has to wonder how many of these gang members were let in by Team Obama?

Immigration lawyer David Leopold of Ulmer & Berne said innocent children could be swept up in the raids.

“In many cases, children don’t freely decide to join a gang. They are threatened by older gang members and forced to get a gang tattoo if they live in a certain neighborhood,” he said.

I bet all the ones scooped up will tell the story about how they were forced in, once they get done talking to the lawyers.

Over at The Hill, working off the Reuters article, they find this to be controversial

In a statement to the news outlet, ICE said that teenagers can be identified in their database as gang members if they meet two or more criteria of gang identifiers, including having gang tattoos, wearing gang apparel or being frequently spotted in an area known for heavy gang activity.

The change in policy is likely to be controversial, especially since it targets minors.

Only to those who are supporters of illegal immigration. Most people will say “they’re here unlawfully and have gang affiliations? Two strikes, goodbye.”

    If they are in the country illegally, they are not innocent! While some of them may have been brought here at too young an age to be responsible, it is still illegal for them to be here.

  2. […] Some of the most violent gangs are made up of illegals, Google MS-13 for examples. So, ICE should heavily target those illegals in such gangs, along with any illegal that commits violent crimes should they not? Pirates Cove notes that to Liberals, this is just not fair or something […]
