Maddow claims Homeland Security "confirmed" this story. Problem: It's not true. Homeland Security was contacted and said its BS. FEMA contacted Merkley's office who told them, "It's a TV hit. You take it when you can". Short video.

    Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) on Tuesday night released documents appearing to show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) diverted nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The documents, first reported by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, detail the agency’s funding redirections for fiscal 2018 and show that millions of dollars were diverted to ICE from several agencies. Those diverted funds, totaling $33.1 million, “will provide funding in support of higher priority detention and removal requirements than those for which originally appropriated,” according to the documents. According to MSNBC, Merkley believes the transfer from...

    Employees at a Pacific Northwest burger chain triggered a new policy after employees wore buttons that read “Abolish ICE” and “No one is illegal” with their uniforms. Ten employees of fast food restaurant Burgerville, located in Portland, Ore., were sent home for a day last month when they refused to remove the buttons while on their shift, The Oregonian reported. The silent protest came amid national outrage regarding the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that previously separated thousands of migrant children from their parents at the US-Mexico border. Calling for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be dissolved has...
  • Assaults on ICE, Border Patrol surge as illegal immigrants get more violent

    Washington Times ^ | September 7, 2018 | Stephen Dinan
    Assaults on ICE agents reached a decade high in 2017, and assaults on Border Patrol agents have also surged in recent years, according to new government numbers that seem to back up agents’ claims that illegal immigrants are increasingly looking to fight rather than flee. The new numbers, reported by Homeland Security’s inspector general, could even be underselling the problem, investigators said, because the government doesn’t do a good job of tracking incidents, and agents and officers don’t always report them properly. But the report does signal renewed danger particularly on the southwest border, where agents say a surge in...

    The union representing Burgerville employees in the Portland area on Friday blasted the company's move to ban buttons on their uniforms , a decision handed down as some workers continue to wear pins proclaiming "Abolish ICE" and other political statements. The Burgerville Workers Union in a tersely worded statement called the new policy, announced Thursday and effective Sept. 13, "disgusting" and "deeply disturbing." The group also accused the company of caving to pressure generated by those angered over the buttons, whom the union appeared to uniformly cast as a horde of right-wing bigots. Portland Burgerville workers serve 'Abolish ICE' message,...

    The number of arrests and removals by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) increased in the first three quarters of fiscal year 2018 compared with the same period the previous year, according to new figures released Thursday. Arrests of undocumented immigrants rose by 17 percent and removals were up by about 9 percent between October 2017 and June 2018. Almost 120,000 undocumented immigrants were arrested, compared with about 102,500 arrests during the same period in 2017. ICE arrested about 40,000 immigrants who did not have prior criminal records, up from about 24,000 arrests in the same fiscal 2017 period. That follows...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The rallying cry from some liberals to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement isn’t a likely winner this election year, as a new poll finds only a quarter of Democrats support eliminating the agency that carried out the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Some potential Democratic presidential contenders, such as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, backed getting rid of ICE in response to the separations. Others, including Sen. Kamala Harris of California, urged a rethinking of the agency, but stopped short of calling for its abolition. President Donald Trump has seized on...

    Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Thursday signed an executive order declaring that the city jail will no longer accept people detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). "Atlanta has permanently ended its acceptance of ICE detainees and will immediately transfer all those remaining out of our City jail," Bottoms tweeted with a photo of her signing the order. "We will not be complicit in an immigration policy that intentionally inflicts misery on vulnerable populations." A spokesperson for ICE confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that all of the agency's detainees at the Atlanta City Detention Center would be transferred by...

    Insanity: Riding a wave of Marxist-socialist sentiment among a growing faction within their party, more and more Democrats — those in office and those running for office — are threatening legal action against federal agents working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It’s the first time in modern history that sitting lawmakers have threatened to take legal action against duly-appointed federal agents who are doing their jobs — and very hard jobs, at that.

    **SNIP** Defending against her suggestion that he's a corrupt parallel to President Donald Trump in Washington and deflecting the odor of criminal prosecutions of people close to him, Cuomo tried to cast Nixon as a corporate donor herself who solicited "favors" from her friend de Blasio. "You're a corporation," he said, faulting the allegedly minimal way by which she disclosed her income tax forms. She noted that in his first race for governor in 2010, his disclosure followed the election. She said her business corporation is that of a small business owner. Also hyperbolically, Cuomo called agents of the Immigration...

    Illegal immigration must be combated with resolve. We cannot allow the issue to be framed by amnesty advocates as a referendum on Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, with its famous line, “Give me your tired, your poor ...” As again evidenced last week with the alleged murder of Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of an undocumented immigrant, there are violent criminals among the many who cross the border. No state is immune from crimes committed by illegal immigrants, certainly not Massachusetts. Yesterday brought news that a man was arrested in Texas and is...

    Hillary Clinton slammed the Trump administration Tuesday afternoon over the administration's zero tolerance immigration policy and family separations, issuing a rare series of tweets aimed at President Trump without directly mentioning him. In the messages, Clinton pointed out that more than 500 migrant children remain separated from their parents weeks after the administration missed a deadline to complete the reunification process. "There's a lot going on right now—understatement of the year. The separation of families and the failure of the administration to reunite them has been eclipsed in the news in recent days, but these tragic circumstances persist," Clinton wrote....
