It seems that under Obama, there was much consternation from a wing of Americans about government agencies breaking down doors, FEMA concentration camps being established, military exercises to take over states (Jade Helm, etc..) (google 'FEMA concentration camps' for links)

Now, we see our government running concentration camps that house children and families in horrid conditions, that same cross section of Americans are silent, or even applaud.

To those Americans: if your old, crazy conspiracy theories about Obama were true, the ACLU would have been there to fight for you. Just as they are fighting today.

Thank heavens for the ACLU, defending our civil liberties, for all.

Some of us are happy with ICE actions. Not sure where you are seeing ICE "breaking down doors" but if that what you think, so be it. Concentration camps comments are laughable but again if you want to think so, go ahead. And if you think "military exercises to take over states" is real,ok, to each his own. I feel better with ICE doing their job, based on court orders, than depending on Google to provide information.

Article: "On Saturday, an emergency temporary restraining order was filed by the ACLU... The decision issued by a federal judge stated that "a noncitizen will not be removed unless and until a reasonable opportunity to talk with an attorney has been provided." The court also put ICE on notice."

poster: "based on court orders"

On that we agree, protecting civil liberties and following The Constitution.

poster: "And if you think "military exercises to take over states" is real,ok, to each his own."

Sorry to hear you are unaware of recent history and how the far right went off the rails. Here's a link from another thread re: the far right conspiracy theories and their fantasies of Obama FEMA concentration camps (Glen Beck, Alex Jones, Michael Wiener Savage, Jerome Corsi, etc.. Web Link ,) etc..

The people subject to these deportation activities have had their day in court. They lost. There is a court order to deport. If the government can't deport them, they can't deport anyone. If you want totally open borders, say so, and make a case. Just don't say you're against that, but then call any activity to enforce borders wrongful.

This is crazy. ICE, use the Eastern District of California as your jurisdiction and serve your arrest warrants in the Northern District. Judge shopping is quite the true course of these Libs. We are way past the tenure of the Roman Empire. Who knows, we maybe to close to the end as to the country we love.

Which just followed the poster's request for judge shopping.

> ICE, use the Eastern District of California as your jurisdiction and serve your arrest warrants in the Northern District

That's quite a contradiction.
