Not One More: Can These Hunger Strikers Stop Obamaís Deportations?
thenation ^ | April 17, 2014 | ZoŽ Carpenter

Ernestina Hernandez (second from left), Cynthia Diaz (center), José Valdez (far right), and other members of the Not1More Deportation campaign, who are on hunger strike near the White House in Washington, DC (Zoë Carpenter).

When José Valdez talks about his son Jaime, his eyes shine.

“He is one of the sweetest young men you’ll ever meet,” José said on Wednesday through an interpreter. “I don’t say that just because I’m his father. He’s a young man who likes to help people. He thinks about humanity. Anytime he sees something that’s uncomfortable he sees a way to try to help. He’s dedicated to study.”

It was a frigid morning in Washington, and José was shivering. He looked across Lafayette Park towards the White House. “I came to DC to ask that my son be let go from detention,” he said. For five days José fasted on President Obama’s doorstep, protesting his son’s treatment and the deportation of millions of other undocumented immigrants under Obama’s tenure.

With House Republicans refusing to move on immigration reform, activists have asked the president to use his executive authority to change the country’s deportation procedures. Of all the effects the broken immigration system on families, deportation gauges the deepest wounds, taking husbands from wives, sons from fathers, and often without due process. It’s also the area over which the president has the most power. But Obama has been reluctant to move before Congress, despite mounting pressure not only from activists but also from prominent members of his own party. On Tuesday, religious leaders who’d met with the Obama at the White House reported that he made it clear to them that he was still not planning executive action.

(As you may recall from past article.http://voxxi.com/2014/03/27/deported-men-us-entry-reunite-families/..Note here: In a statement sent to Voxxi on Feb. 26, ICE said Valdez-Reyes was ordered removed by an immigration judge in June 2013. On Feb. 24, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for a stay of removal and he was deported on Feb. 25. ICE also pointed out that Valdez-Reyes had two previous DUI convictions...) He blew his chances to remain here.Now he wants to play the victim and he’s a young man who likes to help people. He thinks about humanity. He did not think too much about humanity when he is being arrested twice for drunk driving.He would also be charged with no license/no insurance as well.. Being deported twice,coming back a 3rd time..He blew his chances.Afterwards he is model citizen they claim. From their website...Ardani’s family was working to stop his deportation with the Arizona Dream Act Coalition. Pulled over for a minor traffic violation, Ardani has no criminal record other than previous deportations.(whats a few deportations,whats a few drunk driving arrests ,whats a few no license/no insurance charges )But he has has no criminal record, you see.

The narrative spread by the lamestream media is that deportations are underway. It, of course, is a lie. I haven't seen any here in Texas and we have plenty of criminal invaders that need to face a renewal of Operation Wetback.

I go to the Nation front page, they are talking about normalizing relations with Cuba.

I don’t see a Hispanic name among their columnists.

On a serious note, hunger strikes are the most asinine form of protest ever conceived. I guess they aren’t hardcore enough to set themselves on fire.

Self - starving or Self - deportation?

Either way, hostility toward Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico is “working,” to use an Obama phrase.
