Dep't. of Our Bad! 11-year-old detainee is U.S. citizen

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Via onamatopoeia.wordpress.com

our bad, embarrassed, detainee story

So didja hear the one about the 11-year-old boy who spent more than a month at a New Mexico detention? Turns out he was a U.S. citizen! What a knee-slapper, amIright ladies and germs?

Via the Los Angeles Times:

An 11-year-old boy — one of hundreds who have been shuttled to an immigration detention facility in the middle of the New Mexican desert — was released this week after it was discovered that he is a U.S. citizen, according to the child's attorney. [...]

There have also been reports of abuses and inadequate access to attorneys, healthcare and food at new detention facilities, specifically in Artesia.

oops sorry

This child was held prisoner for more than a month. More than a month.

Laura Lichter, an immigration attorney and former president of American Immigration Lawyers Assn. who provides free legal counsel to detainees, said this:

"I think the fact that a U.S. citizen was detained and for this long before anyone actually realized that there was even the possibility that they had detained a U.S. citizen shows you just how little respect and attention is being given to people's cases... What this shows you is that there really is no due process here and that the system is only working in a way to deport people from the country. It is not working to protect people's claims."

Human rights, schuman schmights. Justice, schmustice. All that counts is rounding up as many of them "illegals" as possible who have that weird, non-white skin color. Throw 'em all in the hoosegow, pack 'em into a bus, and boot 'em out of our monochromatic Amurika. Who cares if they're citizens? They look different!

What's that? We've never been a monochromatic nation?

oopsie cat

Family values, my ass.

Freedom, my ass.

Exceptional, my ass.

Why They Come … the Children Swarming Our Borders

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

DNR
NBC's Stephanie Gosk is one of the few investigative journalists out there who can do a field report that actually puts you in the field.

Where you find facts and things Fvx Nation tend to bypass in favor of whatever agenda The Tundra Twit is fancying herself in charge of this week.

wordpolice

When it appeared that she [Gosk, not La Palin. Ick.] had gone into Central America to see just what was motivating the humanitarian crisis growing on our southern borders, I was all ears.

See if this doesn't inform your view of why these families are in a domino effect of extreme measures, and how the United States is most certainly culpable in the larger picture.

This echoed a brilliant interview MSNBC had aired earlier in the day, when Josè Díez-Balart premiered his new hourly news program on the cable news network, which gives a great segue to the view of both sides of the border from a teenager's eyes.

This young woman is not naive, don't think that for a moment. You don't have to be as impressive as Stephanie Gosk to read pragmatic understanding in her being. Janet Murguia of the National Council of La Raza joined in.

These are very important portraits, are they not? Not black and white sentences of moral judgment … these are kids and families. Possible neighbors. Every egg that might escape an IUD is vital, but these actual human beings … not so much?

When does the Pro Life come in, again? Harry Reid may have the right of it, this is all at about Judge Judy level in terms of genuine graspable gravitas.

Going to take a LOT more than a village. Governor Good Hair Perry and Congress seem disinclined to act. SCROTUS would evict.

Opinion Fact

Anybody got this? We can figure out why they came. Where do they go now?

A bit of a bonus as he's such a welcome addition to the troubled MSNBC lineup … Josè Díez-Balart Monday on what it means to have a more public liberal microphone - a voice to keep an ear out for.

A moment of privilege. Well worded.
