Totally Non-Evil ICE Arrests 170 Immigrants Trying To Save Babies From Baby Jails
I stopped reading Wonkette a long time ago because they seemed to have a transphobia problem, but it seems that they've gotten their shit together, so I'll give them another chance.
The friendly folks at US Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) announced Tuesday that federal authorities have arrested 170 immigrants who came forward to sponsor migrant children in government custody. This is the result of a new, fun rule the Department of Homeland Security put into effect this summer. It allows immigration authorities to examine the criminal background and legal status of anyone who attempts to sponsor the unaccompanied minors — usually parents or close relatives already in the country. They can even check the papers of any other adults living in their home, including Grandma.
They actually put out a call in immigrant communities to come sponsor these poor caged kids rotting in prison camps. It was a sting operation. It was a trick. They used kids in prison camps as bait to arrest and cage more people who have done nothing wrong.
They could be using some of that money they used to come up with, plan, and execute this bullshit to find actual homes for these kids in cages, but instead they do this. They used all those resources just to cage more people just trying to fucking live.
