(more) Raids in California!

As I posted yesterday, the presidential campaigns continue to ignore Immigration issues, while the Bush administration continues to push enforcement only tactics in Raids across the country.

Yesterday concluded a 3 week series of raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that arrested over 1,100 immigrants in San Francisco and San Diego. ICE continues its hold on unregulated power, while communities continue to suffer and live in fear.

For Basil Robledo, director of programs for the Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network in San Jose, the latest arrests are one more step on a disturbing path following last year’s failure by Congress to reform the nation’s immigration laws.

He said federal officials have instead turned to heavy-handed enforcement — a strategy that Robledo says has led to fear and broken families.

“It is a scary situation for folks in the community,” he said. “People keep their kids home from school. It creates less of a willingness to talk to police. They see ICE agents and they see a uniformed person, and that blends into all of law enforcement.”

One response to “(more) Raids in California!

  1. Well our country is in a mess and it can’t afford any newcomers. It is time for all the invaders to go home and fight for their rights in their country. They have seen how it can be so go home with that knowledge and use it to better their lives at home.
    Since the invaders choose to be here the government must stop giving them free healthcare, education, interputers and all the other freebees they recieve. I’m sick of paying their way when I’m struggling myself. Just think how much money could be applied to our national debt if they had to pay for their own education and healthcare. I think it is about time to take our country back and stop aiding the illegals. They want to be here pay just like the Americans do. No more free deliveries at our hospitals. No more time taken away from our American students. Our students are being robbed of their education when half the day is used for non english speaking students. This makes no sense, no wonder we are not at the top of the scale where education is concerned.
