ICE is a fukked, dysfunctional bureaucracy populated by mongs, but no one credible proposes that the country abolish enforcement of immigration laws. That's the domain of spittle-flecked fevermind varmintmongs like Alex Jones.

The audit thing was overblown I think, and they of course make mistakes, but they are pretty good at getting after people and taking money they think are owed them.

the IRS made a mistake on my parent's paper-filed return, by adding a few zeroes to AGI.

My parent's AGI is under $60k.

they say we owe $130k.

they told me on the 'phone to file an amended return. they will not admit to a mistake

Just keep telling yourself that. The Democrats are in shambles and completely out of touch with average citizens.

The majority do not want open borders.
The majority do not believe there are 87+ genders.
The majority do not believe that straight white men are the devil.
The majority do not want higher taxes.
The majority do not want to repeal the 2nd amendment.
The majority do not want a return to the Cold War "West v. The Rest" mentality.

If the Dems returned to their working-class roots (pro-Union, pro-social services for those who legitimately need them, pro-education by reducing the outrageous cost of college, etc.) they would be on track to reclaim some semblance of sanity. As of now, they are flinging their own poo and calling everyone right of Bernie Sanders and nazi/racist/misogynist.

That's not a source, that's a picture of a private anonymous citizens participating in a demonstration.

You claim that open borders are a litmus test for the democratic party, who exactly is saying that within the Democratic party? That would mean we would have to tear down baricades, fences, and checkpoints that are already in place; just who is advocating for such a move? If it's not a secret it should be easy to find at least a few elected officials who support your brand of nonsense.

Good luck

Many Democrats are demanding abolishing immigration and customs enforcement. What a terrible message to be sending American voters:

Abolishing ICE is not the same as abolishing immigration and customs enforcement.

Anyone who says that calling for the first is the same as calling for the second is either an idiot or a liar. So...what category do you want to be in? Kind of no good solutions.

Reply
joey (Jul 3, 2018 - 2:45 pm)

I am aware that ICE stands for ‘immigration and customs enforcement’ therefore abolish ICE means abolish immigration and customs enforcement.

What authority (real or imagined) do CPB agents have on the road between Seattle and Portland? No borders being crossed.


Edit: Some of the other commenters in his twitter thread said CPB has enforcement authority within 50 miles (or 100, according to another commenter) of any port of entry.

Reply
walkingparadox (Jan 28, 2019 - 11:13 am)

Yes, CBP, which Border Patrol is a part of, has authority within 100 miles of the border.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Border Patrol is responsible for securing the U.S. border between the ports of entry.

To do this, they use a layered approach that includes patrolling the border itself, (including the use of electronic surveillance devices), patrolling nearby areas and neighborhoods where illegal immigrants can quickly fade into the general population, and conducting checkpoints - both stationary and temporary.

The authority for this is based on the Immigration and Nationality Act 287(a)(3) and copied in 8 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 287 (a)(3), which states that Immigration Officers, without a warrant, may "within a reasonable distance from any external boundary of the United States...board and search for aliens in any vessel within the territorial waters of the United States and any railcar, aircraft, conveyance, or vehicle. 8 CFR 287 (a)(1) defines reasonable distance as 100 air miles from the border.
