ACLU Sues Feds over ICE Arrests in Oregon Courthouses

The American Civil Liberties Union in Oregon filed a lawsuit against the federal government this past week challenging the presence of immigration deportation officers at courthouses in the state.
Breitbart Texas reported on February 2 that the head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a directive ordering ICE officers to target criminal aliens appearing in courthouses.

U.S. Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan signed the order on January 10.

Director Homan wrote in the directive to law enforcement officials:

Federal, state, and local law enforcement officials routinely engage in enforcement activity in courthouses throughout the country because many individuals appearing in courthouses for one matter are wanted for unrelated criminal or civil violations.

Homan continued, “ICE’s enforcement activities in these same courthouses are wholly consistent with longstanding law enforcement practices, nationwide.”

“And, courthouse arrests are often necessitated by the unwillingness of jurisdictions to cooperate with ICE in the transfer of custody of aliens from their prisons and jails,” the ICE acting director added. Homan says the refusal by local police officials in sanctuary jurisdictions to comply with detainers endangers ICE officers and the community.

The policy is seen by some as a move against sanctuary jurisdictions where officers cannot pick up illegal aliens within the safe confines of a jail.

The ACLU, in the sanctuary state of Oregon, filed a federal lawsuit and asked that ICE officials be required to disclose how many immigrants have been questioned by immigration officers at or near Oregon’s state courthouses, reported The Oregonian. The American Civil Liberties Union is seeking records back to January 2017, just before President Trump took office on January 20.

The lawsuit also asks the judge to order ICE to reveal any policies about who is being targeted, any policy about wearing plainclothes, and policies about agents answering questions or refusing to identify themselves to those who they are detaining, reported the media organization based in Portland.

An ICE spokeswoman declined to comment about whether the agency was engaging in racial profiling because of the litigation; however, she said that ICE agents “uphold our laws while continuing to provide our nation with safety and security.”

An Oregon congresswoman became angry in 2017 when ICE officers questioned a man outside an Washington County Courthouse, Breitbart Texas reported.

U.S. Representative Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) demanded answers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after officers stopped a man on September 18 in the Washington County, Oregon, courthouse and asked him for his identification, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from the congresswoman’s office. When the officers learned the man was a U.S. citizen and not the suspect they were searching for, they went on with their business and did not detain the man she identified as Isidro Andrade-Tafolla.

In another case in Oregon this week, the ACLU successfully forced a university hospital to reverse its policy on denying transplant services to illegal immigrants. As reported by Breitbart Texas, the ACLU in Oregon is now pushing for hospitals in that state to change their policies of requiring proof of lawful presence for transplant services.


BREAKING! Feds Just Found What They Needed! She’s Going To PRISON!

Decades ago there was a popular TV series called “The untouchables” depicting the seemingly invincible crime empire of Chicago’s mob boss Al Capone, going head to head with a specially formed elite federal task force headed by an incorruptible agent named Eliot Ness, who eventually brought the mob king down.

Fast forward to 2018 and the once seemingly invincible Clinton dynasty is suddenly on the verge of cracking wide open with not one, but three and maybe even four investigations perhaps even running simultaneously.

The Clinton’s insist its all part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy manufactured by “Trump” and “Fox News” to divert attention from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia election probe.

However try as they do, that invincible bubble that has served them well through countless decades of corruption and malfeasance is finally beginning to crack.

The first investigation involves the Clinton Foundation, which the FBI on Thursday announced it was launching a new investigation to see if the Clinton’s were engaged in a PONZI scam which also included any pay-to-play politics or other nefarious activities while Hillary was Secretary of State in the Obama Administration.

The second is the email scandal and Clinton’s use of a private server which just bubbled up to the surface once again, when it was reveled by John Solomon on Thursday that the memo drafted by former FBI Director James Comey showed that the term “Gross Negligence” was used multiple times and specifically said that there was evidence to conclude that Clinton committed a felony. However the original draft was changed by anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok to “Extremely Careless” which prevented Hillary from being legally charged with a crime, Strzok was also reordered of having an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidential win.

The third and potentially the most damaging to both the Clinton’s and perhaps former President Obama and even former Attorney General Lynch  is the Uranium One deal, which Attorney General Sessions has just ordered the FBI to once again reopen.

There are multiple aspects at play in this investigation, from witness tampering, including threatening a witness to be quiet and not testify to Congress, and the actual reports by the FBI of  bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

The fourth is the unraveling scandal involving an Obama policy dubbed “Project Cassandra,” in which Obama allegedly instructed drug agents to look the other way as the terrorist group Hezbollah poured millions of dollars worth of cocaine into the United States, because the president didn’t want to disrupt the nuclear deal with Iran.

Do you think that any one or perhaps all of these investigations will finally bring down the Clinton dynasty?
