Good News: Immigration Agents Double Number Of Raids, Causing Illegal Aliens To Afraid

See, if we were talking about US agents raiding organized crime, there would be cheering. Because they’re criminals. And we’d want crime raids to make criminals afraid

US immigration agents double number of workplace raids, spreading fear and tearing families apart

Since President Donald Trump took office, ICE has put a renewed premium on workplace raids, and recently announced that it had “already” doubled the number of raids between October and May over the year before – a step towards its pronounced aim at quadrupling the rate practised by the previous administration.

While the president and immigration officials praise these developments, residents in the communities impacted by these raids are largely left to pick up the pieces on their own after the raids. Helping those who have lost husbands and fathers to make ends meet without an important source of income, while rushing to maintain the social fabric in smaller communities suddenly engulfed in fear and concern as the effects of lost workers ripples through the economy.

Between 1 October of last year and 4 May, ICE says that 3,410 “worksite investigations”, or raids, were opened, which led to 594 criminal and 610 administrative arrests. That’s compared to 1,716 such inspections in the fiscal year of 2017, when 139 criminal arrests were made alongside 172 administrative arrests. The raids have targeted communities across the country, including limo companies in New York City and 7-Eleven stores in California.

ICE contends that the raids are important in order to verify the legality of workers and ensure that undocumented people with criminal records are not in the American workforce, and to ensure that employers are not unfairly gaming the system – even though, as is the case in Tennessee, claims that the employers were violating the law have led to no arrests for those in charge and the plant is still running, according to people interviewed for this story.

“ICE is responsible for upholding the laws established by the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, which requires employers to verify the identity and work eligibility of all individuals they hire,” Danielle Bennett, an ICE spokesperson, said when contacted about the raids. “These laws help protect jobs for US citizens and others who are lawfully employed, eliminate unfair competitive advantages for companies that hire an illegal workforce, and strengthen public safety and national security.”

Wait, they’re actually enforcing laws passed by a duly elected Congress and signed into law by a president? This is the price to pay for getting all those illegals amnesty back in ’86. Of course, that was a different time, when illegal immigration was much lower, and illegals were polite and contrite, asking “please” and wanting to be a part of America, whereas now they are demanding: demanding that they be given citizenship, demanding that they be given free education, medical care, jobs, places to live, money, demanding that we cater to their culture and language. And, let’s not forget how insulting and rude so many of them are. And criminals.

Meanwhile, here’s a whiny Democrat who didn’t complain when Obama was doing this

Yeah, he was pretty much just trying to Create An Incident In Order To Bloviate in favor of people who are unlawfully present in the U.S.
