The Democrats are working to destroy America’s border security.
They are pushing radical policies that would have been considered crazy ten years ago.
Rashida Tlaib’s new insane push against law enforcement will make your blood boil.
The Illegal immigration crisis is rapidly growing.
It’s predicted that it will be the largest number of illegal immigrants in 20 years.
Despite this, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) called for the defunding of immigration agencies.
She claimed in an interview with Just Futures Law released on Wednesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other agencies “terrorize migrant communities.”
As reported by Fox News, “Tlaib was asked about the push by the Biden administration to increase money spent on border technology for Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) border request includes $665 million in investments toward modernizing land ports of entry and $47 million to invest in detection capabilities in addition to investments in border surveillance technology.”
Tlaib was questioned about technologies that could be seen as “Trump’s wall” and how to stop Democrats from supporting them.
“Look, the simple answer to that question is we must eliminate funding for [Customs and Border Protection], [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and their parent organization, [Department of Homeland Security],” she said.
“Time after time we have seen it as advocates on the ground, as human services agencies on the ground to continue to see over and over again, that these agencies are inept to humanely guiding migrants through our immigration system and… instead they further continue to terrorize migrant communities located within our communities,” she said.
“This approach is something that many of, especially the new members of Congress, are coming with full force and pushing back against this idea,” Tlaib said. “They rename this kind of militarization or targeting in a very inhumane way of our immigrant neighbors, but when it comes down to it, it is the same thing – which is targeting communities of color in a way that is, to me, very much violates human rights and dignity for so many of our communities.”
Tlaib claimed it is a “myth” that “more advanced technology will inherently make our border more safe and secure.”
She added that instead, the advanced technology has “turned and terrorized” certain migrant communities and made them feel less safe and “fearful of our own government.”
“This is a distraction to what is really needed, which is full comprehensive immigration reform policies in our country. We are far from even getting to that conversation because people are distracted with these for-profit, corporate greed approaches that are coming to experiment on our immigrants and at our border,” she added. “And I say ‘enough.’ Enough in trying to collect DNA or put facial recognition technology that doesn’t recognize brown and black faces, it’s racism itself.”
The last House Democratbudget proposal cut Customs and Border Protection by a billion dollars.
