BREAKING: ICE Deportation Quotas Confirmed, Private Prisons Rejoice
We all know the Obama administration has broken deportation records.
This is how it's being done. According to USA TODAY, U.S Immigration officials have created new strategies to deport immigrants that have been convicted of only minor crimes, for example:
"Trolling state driver's license records for information about foreign-born applicants. Dispatching U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to traffic safety checkpoints conducted by police departments. Processing more illegal immigrants who had been booked into jails for low-level offenses"
Gillian Christensen, ICE spokeswoman tried to cover this absurd agency practice saying that the agency does not have "quotas" but instead they have "annual performance goals." What is this, McDonald’s?
She then tries to blame it on money saying that this "reflects the agency's commitment to using the limited resources provided by Congress". Even though we all know that this bureaucratic agency is a well-oiled & funded persecution machine.
Who are the quotas benefiting? Well there is an easy answer for that. Look at the billionaire profits from the private prison industry. ICE is selling immigrants - and they have quotas to meet and profits to be made. One has to wonder if this is what we have come to as society?
