Top Democrats demand answers on DHS plans to deploy elite agents to sanctuary cities

Source: The Hill

Top Democrats on the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees are demanding documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regarding plans to send elite law enforcement units typically assigned to the southern border to take part in arrest operations in sanctuary cities across the country.

In a letter to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Monday, the Democratic lawmakers demanded a "full briefing" within a week as well as documents by March 2 listing details such as the cities where the specially trained officers are expected to be deployed and the duration of their assignment.

"The committees have serious concerns over the utility of engaging these highly militarized units, which were never intended for routine immigration enforcement activities, in densely populated metropolitan areas," Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and subcommittee chairs of the two panels, Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.), wrote in the letter.

"Tactics such as these, which appear to be politically motivated and not grounded in national security, are unacceptable and do nothing more than punish residents and instill fear in communities," they wrote.

They'll get the same cooperation from this administration as always.

2. After the pardons, after Barr, at this point I'm glad Democrats demand... but, seriously...

no one on the other end of the line will pick up. They don't have to, want to, or need to... they've been owned.

3. What would Putin do? That is what Trumpolini will do.

We no longer live in a democracy, we have a fascist dictator as a leader.

4. We know they won't be asking for the papers of people who look Dutch.

But they aren't racist.

5. Maybe Democrats should have thought of that before agreeing to a budget resolution

It's bad enough turning into 1930s Germany...we shouldn't be giving them the funds to do it.

Don't we realize that the only way to stop these fucksticks is to deny them funding.

Retrumplicans are as corrupt and deserving of federal prison as Donnie Shit for Brains is. They aren't going to suddenly develop a burning desire to uphold their oath.

Donnie Shit for Brains isn't going to suddenly develop an aversion to criminal acts and evil, no matter what Susan Collins tries to sell us.

I'm not hopeful that the American people will remove this amphibian turd in November, or if their votes will even be fairly counted.

That leaves very few options. It's either going to be armed insurrection, or starve the beast.

Neither of those options is very pleasant, but someone tell me how I'm wrong.

I hate to be hyperbolic, but that's pretty much where we are.
