    Re: ICE Raids (ongoing immigration raids) (MERGED)

    Look check it out....

    I am a US citizen by birth...my parents are naturalized...it was only by the slip of a condom that I was born in the US.

    My wife is also a first generation US citizen, her parents are naturalized...hell 2/3's of her family are naturalized. It's a process, you go through it and you are done.

    My best friend 'fast tracked' as he won some freaking lottery or some shit...and he got it done faster some how.
    My cousin Igor actually joined the US army and he got fast tracked, plus he was a citizen of Russia and Canada...so I think being a Canuck helped.

    Again all part of the process, we came here learned the language, most of my wife's family are doctors, lawyers and "productive" members of society.

    Me I'm sort of a dumb ass...but that's to be expected...

    Illegal immigration is nothing but slavery. It profits people who would make money off the backs of slaves. It is one of the most degrading forms of treatment one person can inflict on another...and sadly most that are trying to "help" don't get this.

    I have seen first hand what evil one man can perpetrate against another, perpetuating illegal immigration and trying to "help' makes things worse as it breeds a false hope.
    One of my wife's cousins is in a hospital in the Philippines dying of AIDS because some guy promised her that he could get her into the the US because he knew someone who would get her a green card...if you would like I have more examples of how gullible people in my and my wife's family were ripped off or injured due to the greed of men who promise, based on the misconception, that once you get here, you can stay, "no papers needed".

    The safest thing in the world is for the US to be ultra strict on immigration, it will deter countless people from risking their lives and the lives of their children for the promise of a "better life" in subjugation and misery.

    Ditto that!! Damn media, once again playing on the sympathies of the uninformed! I-L-L-E-G-A-L --- they knew it, they did it anyway. The only folks I feel bad for are the ones who get deported only because the government didn't get the paperwork processed by their own deadline. Meanwhile, we're giving "amnesty" to those who break the law??? Screw 'em!

    Accused document seller held in immigration raid

    BOSTON — A federal judge yesterday detained Luis Torres, who stands accused of providing illegal immigrants working at Michael Bianco Inc. with falsified Social Security and alien registration cards, saying no measure could guarantee that he would not flee.
    Mr. Torres, 54, was led into court in handcuffs, wearing a green prison jumpsuit. His detention hearing is just one of many that will be held in connection with Michael Bianco Inc., a textiles manufacturer and producer of military backpacks that was raided last week for allegedly employing more than 350 undocumented workers.

    R.I. protesters decry raid on illegal workers

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Dozens of protesters called on the federal government Monday to release hundreds of allegedly illegal immigrants detained after a sweep of a New Bedford, Mass., factory last week.
    Protesters gathered outside the office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and held signs that read, "Stop the raids" and "Amnesty for all" and chanted "Set them free."
    Immigration authorities last Tuesday rounded up 361 alleged illegal immigrants at Michael Bianco Inc., a company that makes equipment and apparel for the U.S. military. Most of those detained were women from Central America, many with children. At least 60 have since been released to care for their children.
    "Children need their families together," said Renae Chaves, of Cranston, who brought her 2 1/2-year-old son, Rowan. "I couldn't imagine being separated by my child."

    Authorities release more immigrants

    NEW BEDFORD — Nearly 20 illegal immigrants nabbed in last week's Michael Bianco Inc. raid were released by federal authorities yesterday to care for their young children, according to federal immigration authorities and an attorney working for their release. One was released because she has diabetes.
    Although the exact number of those released was unclear, this much was confirmed last night:
    • Nine of the detainees — seven women and two men — were released from the Bristol County House of Corrections yesterday, according to Bernie Sullivan, spokesman for the Bristol County House of Corrections. Those detainees were all from El Salvador.
    • Nine detainees from Texas were also being processed for release, according to Paula Grenier, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. An immigrant attorney in Boston said another detainee from Texas, who was born in Mexico, had joined the nine Dartmouth detainees yesterday.
    It was unclear last night if the one woman from Texas was part of the nine ICE had announced were being released.
    One of those released was a woman whose 6-year-old daughter had been cared for by a baby sitter since being arrested Tuesday. The others included a woman with diabetes and a woman whose husband had been taking care of their 1-year-old child, according to immigration attorney Ondine Galvez Sniffin of Catholic Social Services.
    "They're very tired, they've really been under the gun," said John Willshire Carrera, an attorney with Greater Boston Legal Services. "They said they felt humiliated, like they were treated like the worst of the worst criminals."

    They had another article in today's paper about DSS demanding the aliens being detained are released due to "humanitarian concerns". I'm sure by now ICE has already decided they are not doing another raid in liberal ass massachusetts.

    It's a federal deal, lay off, DeVille Patrick.

    Mayor Speaks Out About Immigration Raid

    Officials Upset With Way Situation Handled



    BOSTON -- Supporters planned to gather in Boston on Tuesday to rally against last week's immigration raid as the mayor of New Bedford spoke out about the incident.

    NewsCenter 5's Amalia Barreda reported that the mayor is angry with the way the raid was handled by the federal government.

    "I noticed that the president down in Guatemala yesterday said that this was the kind of action that catches the Congress' attention. This doesn't catch the Congress' attention. This wreaks havoc in New Bedford, Mass.," New Bedford Mayor Scott Lang said.
    Lang erupted over the chaos that he said the raid has caused in his city. Families affected by the raid have been showing up at St. Hedwig Church, where donations of food, clothing and other necessities are piling up.

    A pregnant woman from El Salvador, who doesn't want to be identified, said she hasn't spoken to her husband since they were both arrested last Tuesday. She was released because of her condition.

    "Oh my god. What I would most like is for him to come back. I need him because I'm going to have my baby April 3. I have two weeks left, and I don't know when he's going to arrive here," the woman said.

    "New Bedford stands for families. And I thought George Bush did, too. I thought his dad did. I thought his brother did. I though that's what that was all about. So separating families doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense," Lang said.

    The New Bedford School Department has also had to mobilize. Officials said they are working 24-7, trying to determine how many children have been affected by the raid.

    They don't have any final numbers, but officials believe more than 200 kids have been directly impacted and are said to be suffering severe trauma despite the safety net New Bedford is attempting to construct.

    "On Sunday there were some children walking around with pictures of their mother saying, 'Have you seen my mom?' They haven't seen their mom in five days, four days," New Bedford School Department Assistant Superintendent Fred Fuentes said.

    Housing is another issue that some say is becoming a problem.

    "Families are getting locked out of their apartments. That is a fact. There are some landlords in this community who are afraid to have illegal aliens in their houses so they have locked them out," said Bethany Toure of New Bedford Community Connections.

    No sympathy for illegal immigrants among some in SouthCoast

    A wave of anger is swelling among SouthCoast residents and legal immigrants over the support for undocumented workers arrested by federal agents at a South End factory.
    Citizens in the SouthCoast and beyond are flooding local talk radio programs and The Standard-Times to complain about the portrayal of the 361 mostly Central American workers as noble, despite their illegal entry into the city's work force.

    "What about us? That's what they want to know," said talk show host Evan Rousseau about the callers to his WBSM morning program that have tied up his five phone lines every day since the raid by federal agents last Tuesday.
    "People are angry," Mr. Rousseau said. "Ninety-five percent of the callers are angry. They want to know why no one is asking them, citizens and legal immigrants, about how someone legally can work 50 hours a week and still have trouble buying groceries for their family."
    The anger bubbling to the surface of talk radio and the newspaper gushes out of a deep, unsettled pool of frustration and resentment fueled by the influx of new immigrants to this city of immigrants. The local vitriol varies little from that which is heard throughout the country about America's troubled and uneven administration of its immigration laws.
    America's failed immigration policy runs a close second to Iraq on the spectrum of issues convulsing the nation. The question for Congress in the upcoming debate has two parts: How to handle the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants residing in the United States today and how to strengthen the nation's borders when a solution is found to the first problem.

    My mother became a citizen in 1969. She was an irish imigrant who came here through Canada. My fathers parents did the same thing. Both from Ireland. He served in the Korea. Sorry if I dont support you redneck agenda. Maybe my parents should have been rounded up and kicked out too? Hell, any idea how many illegal irish there are in this state? But all I hear about on this site are about south american illegals. They fucked up this operation from the get go.

    Gov: State Had Months To Prepare For Raid

    Patrick Says Feds Hindered Response

    BOSTON -- Gov. Deval Patrick said state officials knew months in advance of a planned immigration raid at a New Bedford factory and adequately prepared for its repercussions.

    But the governor says federal authorities hindered state response by failing to cooperate as the raid unfolded.

    Since the round-up of 361 alleged illegal immigrants at the Michael Bianco Incorporated factory on March 6, Patrick and members of the state's congressional delegation have repeated criticized U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials for failing to work with them.
    Federal officials have maintained all along that they planned and prepared for the raid for months with the state.

    But Patrick said the expected cooperation between the state and federal governments did not occur.

    ABOUT THE NEW BEDFORD DETAINEES

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released the nationalities of all of the men and women who were detained at last week's Michael Bianco Inc. raid. Of the 361 people who were arrested, 35 were immediately released, followed by 25 more the next day, all to care for young children. The rest were held at Fort Devens in Ayer until ICE flew two groups to Texas.

    According to court documents, 116 illegal immigrants were flown to the El Paso Processing Center in El Paso, Texas: 87 Guatemalans, 23 Hondurans, three Mexicans, one Portuguese, one Ecuadorian and one Cape Verdean. They were 94 males and 22 females

    90 illegal immigrants were flown to a detention facility in Harlingen, Texas: 64 Guatemalans, 15 Hondurans, six Brazilians, three Cape Verdeans and two Mexicans.

    90 illegal immigrants, all from El Salvador, were being held in three New England facilities: Bristol County House of Corrections in Dartmouth, Barnstable County House of Corrections in Bourne, and the Wyatt Detention Center in Central Falls, R.I.

    NEW BEDFORD — Calling for a more humane immigration policy, a procession of speakers addressed hundreds of people at a rally yesterday in support of those detained in a raid at a local defense contractor's plant.
    "Let us work together to craft a policy that promotes justice, protects the vulnerable and ennobles us all," Howard Mabry, a leader of the sponsoring agency, United Interfaith Action, told those attending the rally at Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational-Technical High School.

    Marjorie Blaha of New Bedford held a sign that said, "ICE protects my mother, America, by deportation of illegal alien criminals."

    NEW BEDFORD — Although Michael Bianco Inc. fell under the watchful eye of several federal agencies, their narrow investigative focus seems to have let the defense contractor fly under the radar, continuing to operate with illegal immigrants for years.
    "The Bianco disgrace seems like a classic case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing," said Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass. "This administration's policy must be to notify all relevant agencies about all investigations so that everyone is on the same page."

    DSS, ICE still fighting over immigrant detainees

    By Aaron Nicodemus
    Standard-Times staff writer
    March 20, 2007 6:00 AM
    NEW BEDFORD — Two weeks after the federal immigration raid on Michael Bianco Inc., state and federal officials are still jostling over the fate of 12 illegal immigrants.
    Detainees that the Massachusetts Department of Social Services have requested be released include a pregnant woman, a mother whose 2-year-old child has asthma and an eating disorder, a mother whose 7-year-old daughter has severe allergies, a woman with cancer, six fathers with young children and a son who cares for a diabetic father. DSS has also requested that a father and his 18-year-old son be released.

    Documents filed with the U.S. District Court in Boston by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and by DSS, lay out the ongoing dispute between the two agencies over whether to release these 12 individuals.
    Gov. Deval Patrick has called the raid's impact on families a "humanitarian crisis." At the Statehouse today, an oversight hearing will be held to discuss the "New Bedford Raid's Impact on Children and Families." DSS Commissioner Harry Spence, Health and Human Services Secretary JudyAnn Bigby and Executive Office of Public Safety Secretary Kevin Burke are all expected to testify. ICE was not invited.
    While the federal agency has been criticized for separating immigrant parents from their families, of the 44 detainees DSS had requested be released for "humanitarian reasons," ICE has already released 32 of them. ICE has released a total of 90 of the 361 illegal aliens arrested March 6, the day of the raid. A number of others have successfully posted bonds of between $1,500 and $3,000.

    Re: Immigrants worry about more ICE raids

    This sentiment for these illegals is sickening. How about having a heart for American citizens who cannot get jobs because owners are willing to hire these illegals at $3.00/hr and lower.

    The people who are legalized do it through the right channels and believe it or not: they learn english. On a side note, if they decide to attempt to deport 12 million people, there is room for 3-4 in my car. As a President once said, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country". :)
