I think everybody should deal with ICE in this way.

A sheriff’s department in Michigan is ending a controversial agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after civil rights advocates heaped scorn on the agency for putting a decorated military veteran and U.S. citizen into administrative detention over false claims that he was an undocumented immigrant.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young announced on Friday that her department will no longer hold immigrant detainees for federal immigration officials unless there’s an accompanying warrant–signed by a federal judge or magistrate–involved.

Sheriff LaJoye-Young said, via statement:

“My primary goal remains the preservation and enhancement of public safety, due process and the rule of law. For this reason, I notified ICE officials earlier today that the Kent County Sheriff will hold detainees for ICE only after ICE presents to our office an arrest warrant issued by a federal judge or magistrate — otherwise known as a judicial arrest warrant. This change is effective immediately.”

This move will essentially put an end to the county’s practice of holding suspected immigrants in custody for ICE agents to pick them up on suspected immigration violations.

I think it is becoming more and more clear that ICE is becoming Trump’s version of the Nazi brownshirts, and that the agency is simply out of control. 

I was not originally on board with dismantling them all together, but I am more than convinced that they need to be placed on a short leash by somebody who is far more reasonable than Tangerine Hitler.

    Brandon Flowers said it was inspired by the events of recent years:

    I think it’s a very important time right now. And ‘enough was enough’ is basically where it comes from. It started in my mind around when Sandy Hook happened, and as a father how that affected me. And then it just started stacking up — things like Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin, things like what’s happening at the wall. This stuff didn’t seem to be in harmony with the values that I believe my country was founded on.

    In a decent country, serving in the military would grant you citizenship once you successfully complete your tour, and legal immigrant status while serving.
