Despite Trust Act, Boston police handed over illegal aliens for deportation

Image result for deportation of illegal aliensBoston’s Trust Act — designed to reassure immigrants that city police would not help deport them — has a loophole that was used to turn over nine men to federal immigration officials, city records show.

The nine men turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2015 had serious criminal histories, according to police, making their detention less of a public issue. But advocates worry that the same loophole could be used to detain and deport any immigrant for so much as a traffic violation — putting undocumented families at risk if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his promise to expand deportations.

Boston’s version of the 2014 Trust Act was intended by city councilors to keep police out of the business of deporting immigrants. Councilors said the measure would ensure that immigrants see city police as people they can turn to for help — and not as a threat.

The newly discovered loophole in Boston’s Trust Act involves a technical matter of timing: The act specifically forbids police from detaining immigrants for ICE after a judge has ordered them released. But police said the act does not ban turning over immigrants to ICE while they are still trying to make bail.

Trump’s ascension is time of doubt

The nine included including an Algerian man with a felony conviction for swinging a hammer at a South Boston bar owner; a Dominican man who returned to the United States illegally after being deported four times and is now in federal prison; and a citizen of Vietnam with assault convictions who has more recently been the scourge of Macy’s in Downtown Crossing, pilfering hundreds of dollars in watches, clothing, and hats from the store.

“We don’t claim to be the immigration police,” said Boston police Lieutenant Michael McCarthy, explaining the decision. “We operate within the parameters of the ordinance.”

Yes Ronald,

 This is correct, and yes Marilyn, they do have to document in a affidavit, exposing the issues. Like also here in America, Racism is considered when extremist persecute a people because of race. And violence used against them, even in Mexico to the Middle East.

 But still they have to have a back ground check, because anyone can just jump on the boat and say they need Asylum.

Sanctuary cites are illegal.  So any thing protecting them is illegal.  If you are illegal that is the end of it. 

Trump should open all the fema camps and rename them Asylum Camps for illegals. Then they can all live there out of fear untill they want to go back to where they came from or their court date comes up. They can be asigned duties to keep the place clean and run it like a well-oiled-machine with their own labor, and grow food for themselves to eat. If they want to go home they can work to earn the travel fare for themselves and each member of their family. We could throw Muslim refugees into the camps as well for a multi-cultral mix . 

I think there would be a lot of self-deportation and a lot less illegal boarder crossing when word got out on the new Asylum camps.

Pardon my French but this notion of separating families is a bunch of HORSE SHIT         The family can

go back to wherever they come from       Noting says that they have to be serperated except their own

selfisness

PRECISELY.  That's what I keep saying....they can leave as a FAMILY.  If one or some choose to stay then THEY broke up their own family.  Too bad so sad...

Boo-freakin'-Hoo.

Joe Biden On Violence Against Women:   We Have To Keep ‘Punching At It, And Punching At It, And Punching At It’

 The audience laughed as he said this.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.

Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former vice president previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.

The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.

“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”

A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.

Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”

“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”
