if parents are detained, agents should make sure they have the ability to visit with their children or participate in family court proceedings.

That's a scary turn of phrase which seems to indicate that has not always been the case.  And even if it wasn't, I find it incredibly sad that you have to spell out explicitly "Yes, even illegals about to be deported have the right to have their say in front of a judge before you take their kids away."

So, Obama can tell his minions to exercise prosecutorial discretion when it comes to immigration, but when it comes to marijuana dispensaries and how we prosecute the drug war.....

Actually, I thought this article would be about the latest GOP impeachment threat is claiming President Obama isn't enforcing ObamaCare laws. That one was easy as the Administration is working the new systems in with states and companies without making a clusterfark of new stuff occurring at one time.

This one is easy too. Trying to get immigration officials to act more humanly with illegal immigrants concerning their kids.

As for marijuana dispensaries, can't make everybody happy, can we?  I support decriminalization for pot (I did some drug interdiction missions while on active duty), but Congress needs to act on that subject.

The dispensaries he's raided up here usually end up to have been dealing out the back door as well, so there's that.

It hasn't. There have been cases where they just take the adults, send them through deportation proceedings, and ship them out, often leaving young children with no caretaker whatsoever. Because they're US Citizens, and they can't deport them, so they just leave them, or slightly better, dump them into foster care.

But Republicans think the law is fine as is, and we don't need immigration reform. Nope. Damn brownies got what was comin' to 'em.

Obama has upped deportations dramatically, but who he's deporting is less random, so that's been happening less under his Presidency than it did in the past. Still, it's disgusting, and we really need a comprehensive reform.
 
2013-08-24 01:35:38 PM
FTFA: Goodlatte  , whose committee is in charge of many of the immigration bills the House could consider later this year and who is working on a legalization bill for young illegal immigrants, said the move "poisons the debate" and shows the president is trying to "politicize the issue" rather than work for a compromise bill.

Mr. Goodlatte, Congress has had years to work on an immigration reform bill, but your party has repeatedly chosen the role of obstruction rather than progress.  While your party members are telling 11 year old girls 'tough titties, you're father is getting deported' and eliciting cheers from your base for such heartless positions, Obama is doing what needs to be done to address the issue since you're apparently incapable.

Take note of this as yet another reason why your party is losing more popular support every day.

So, you want to round up 11 million illegals and send them home?  OK, fine.

* This will require a mobilization of resources not seen in this country since World War II.
* So double, nay, triple the budget of the Vaterlandssicherheitsdepartment.
* Then double the taxes! triple the taxes! to pay for it all.
* And SHUT THE FARK UP about taxes, surveillance and Big Gubmint.

Or you could just hand out some fines for hiring illegals.  But no, that requires holding Jerb Creators® accountable.

Estimates of the costs to deport 11-12 million people runs to about $285 billion. And that's not counting deporting their legal resident/U.S. citizen children, as was suggested by one of our resident trolls 'round these parts. 'Why not send the kid back with the parent? Let Mexico sort it out.'

"Too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long, and for no truly good law enforcement reason," Attorney General Eric Holder, the top U.S. law enforcement official, said in a speech in San Francisco unveiling the proposals.

I'll believe it when I see it, and this can barely be called a baby-step.  We'll be making progress when we stop treating drug use like a crime and instead treat it as a public health issue, and when drug users (or rather, predominantly minority and poor drug users) are no longer legally discriminated against in every facet of life, down to housing, education, and employment.

And no, these pitiful concessions (proposals, at this point) aren't enough.  People are still going to jail, and when they get out, they are going to have zero opportunity to participate in a normal way as functioning members of society.  They won't be able to get college loans, they won't be eligible for housing assistance, they will be discriminated against, legally, when it comes to housing and employment.

So, yes, it's not enough, and it's born out of nothing more than budgetary concerns.  If we could afford to keep locking up drug users, we'd keep doing it.

Look, personally, I think marijuana (both medical and recreational) should be decriminalized. But it ain't gonna happen. And it certainly isn't going to happen with this President. Even if Obama wanted to completely dismantle marijuana laws (and I don't think he does), this country is not going to let that happen. The cries of "SOFT ON CRIME!! LAWLESSNESS!! OBAMA IS RUINING LIVES BY ENCOURAGING DRUUUUUG USE!!!! THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!" would be deafening. Notice how many conservatives (notably around here) are suddenly pro-pot. 'That evil Obama is raiding medical MJ dispensaries!' We're constantly hearing about how 'libertarian' politicians like Rand Paul are pro-pot legalization. Yet none of them do anything about it, do they? They just want to biatch about Obama doing (or not doing) something.

It's a long, slow process, but eventually I think marijuana legalization (or decriminalization) will follow the same-sex marriage model. As more and more states trot it out, eventually the federal government will have to follow suit, because a patchwork of state-by-state laws just isn't going to be practicable. And, as with marriage equality and single-payer health care, once it does happen, the Republicans will claim to have always been for it and will take the credit for it happening.
 
2013-08-24 02:47:22 PM
There's a difference between "going around" the law by not devoting limited resources to enforcing a stupid law with deleterious effects, and doing something you don't have the legal authority to do. So, for instance, I would say that when Congress bans you from giving money to rebels in Central America and you sell arms to one of our enemies to do just that, then you've done something far worse than simply declining to deport children of immigrants. In the first case, you've arrogated an authority to yourself that you've been expressly denied. In the second, you've just decided not to waste money that could be better spent doing other things you're entitled to do.

If Republicans are really worried about Obama not enforcing all federal laws, then they better start appropriating the hundreds of billions of dollars it's going to take to track down and arrest every single American who's ever smoked a joint. After all, it's a federal crime to possess any amount of marijuana, no matter how small.

Get to it, guys.

I never said I supported deportation or our current immigration laws.  I want to know why Obama gets to selectively enforce immigration laws, yet our drug policy remains largely unchanged.

Is it because the injustices that the children of immigrants suffer due to unjust immigration policies are that much more grave than the injustices that the children of drug offenders suffer due to our drug laws?  Or is it because Hispanics are a large voting block that hasn't been secured for the Democrats yet?

Well, I'm not a Republican, and my girlfriend is a first generation citizen of Mexican descent (both parents), so no.  Anyone care to answer the question?

I see the scraps Obama and Holder have thrown to civil libertarians and social justice advocates in regards to the drug war as born out of budget concerns, and the sweeping changes in how he chooses to enforce immigration as evidence that African-American voters are a securely buttoned-up Democratic voting bloc, whereas Hispanics are still (relatively) up in the air.

If this was about justice, about doing the right thing, and not securing votes, then we'd see an equally zealous and sweeping push when it comes to drug laws.  We have not.

AirForceVet: As for marijuana dispensaries, can't make everybody happy, can we?  I support decriminalization for pot (I did some drug interdiction missions while on active duty), but Congress needs to act on that subject.


According to Congress that isn't their job. The Controlled Substances Act explicitly makes it an executive decision- a function of the DEA in particular- to determine which drugs are scheduled, and what schedule they're placed under.

Obama could legalize marijuana tomorrow if he wanted, no Congressional action needed.

Obama did run on a platform of not raiding dispensaries.

The dispensaries he's raided up here usually end up to have been dealing out the back door as well, so there's that.

I can't wait to see how the feds deal with the official Washington State Marijuana Dispensaries that will be opening for business soon.

Yes, let's see how they react...


I read that article from beginning to end, but it doesn't seem to have a damn thing to do with the question I asked.

Fark It:  but when it comes to marijuana dispensaries


Look man, I want it to be legal too. But let that go. It'll happen eventually. Until then, it's not that hard to procure if you want/need it.
