Trump, ICE and Voting
COLUMNS & FEATURES
There are so many things happening with the Trump Administration and the
federal government, it’s hard to keep track of it all. As Donald Trump does
his “rope-a-dope,” things hidden from view start happening in the federal
government.

Will we wake up one day to discover that all of our schools have been
privatized? Will we once again begin to see black clouds on the horizon that
are not rain clouds? Will we find out one day that many of our community
centers are closing down because HUD Secretary Ben Carson decided that
our urban areas should be able to pull themselves up by their own
bootstraps? After all, his mom and he did it. There are all sorts of
shenanigans going on.

Last month, it was revealed that the Trump Administration, with little or no
fanfare, transferred $200 million to the Immigration and Customs
Enforcement agency. That’s ICE, for short, the agency that has been
implementing Trump’s stepped up enforcement that has been separating
children from their parents and decimating some families where the
breadwinner is removed and the U.S. citizen children are left in dour
economic straits. Of that $200 million, $107 million went to deportation
efforts.

Well Wisconsin experienced what that was all about beginning Friday
September 21st when ICE implemented a statewide raid that netted 83
individuals accused of being in the United States without documentation.
Reports are that while some of the people did have criminal histories, ICE
was taking everyone available at the time.--
