And this is how draconian enforcement of immigration policy hurts people. They are afraid to get help because when you live in fear of the government, the last thing you want to do is announce your presence to the government, even when you need help in an emergency.

Whoa, way to set the bar impossibly high.

Besides, they closed the churches.

If a bunch of illegals in Houston end up barricaded in a building shooting at any authority figures coming toward them then 100% of the blame should land squarely on the Orange Menace occupying the Whitehouse.

That's not a bug, it's a feature. Especially if you barely acknowledge their humanity. I would expect a good portion of Trump supporters to cheer if they heard that people were dying because they were afraid to seek help during the hurricane.

Referring to Joel Osteen's Walmart of Worship as a church is a stretch.  Kind of like Scientology is a religion.  Only valid on the checkbox on a tax form.

Plus, Osteen would tell you if God loved you enough you'd have another home in another state you could go to and be safe after you flew your private jet there.  You need to pray harder.

If they're unwilling to seek help, then they prize their welfare checks over all else, including their lives.  If they don't care if they live, how can we be expected to?

This right here is why we're going through the sh*t. The GOP has been doing its damnedest to make more underclasses. Black, Latino, gay, feminist -- If they can get their base to hate just one of their targets, they can  galvanize and control them. All you have to do is undermine their humanity. Sometimes it takes years, but they're nothing if not persistent.

I'm still waiting for one of those crazy preachers to explain to me why God is punishing the people of Texas. Are there too many gays? Did those districts not vote for the dickweed in chief? Come on. If this were a blue state they'd have already said something.

My whole family is this way now. If something were to happen and we needed help, we'd turn to each other first. You invite the police into your house and they're going to look for something to arrest YOU for, even if you're the victim. Hell, ESPECIALLY if you're the victim. It's creating a kind of tribalism, even in the middle classes, that usually was just seen in poor minority communities. I don't trust the police, especially the ones here who are mostly Mormon. And the prosecutor is Mormon. And so is the presiding judge over the superior court. It's a good ol' boy network from top to bottom, and since I'm no longer Mormon, I'm persona non grata. So I just try to stay under the radar by driving a boring white Camry with no identifying marks. And I'm a white male.

In the case of what immigration has been doing to people, it's more like a trap set through artifice in order to deceive others, which is even more devious and insidious.

Oh, trust me, I'm trying. I need to take a 90-hour class to get my teaching certification back. I was actually hired in Washoe County (Reno), Nevada two years ago and didn't take the job because rents were going up like crazy because of the gigafactory. So then I'd be stuck in a city where I'd have to have 3 roommates to live in a sh*tty bedroom. I really liked it when I first went, but then I found out I couldn't retire there.

So, looks like I'm going back to Phoenix. I'd like to go back to my old neighborhood there, but it's been hipster-ized almost like Brooklyn. So I don't know what I'll do. But the retirement plan is much better. A lot of my old colleagues are now principals and they're begging me to go back and teach music. A couple of them want me to build them a competition-level music program from the ground up, because that's what I did before. I'm not good at a lot of things, but when it comes to teaching music, I kick ass. I'm just keeping my head down for now, and subbing, and also helping the middle-school teachers with their band and steel drum programs. I also fix a lot of their instruments because the school can't afford to send them out for repairs. I guess I'm trying to rack up some karma points for when I make the move.

Do I think that illegal immigrants should be deported?  Maybe.

If they're criminals, absolutely.  Throw them out without prejudice.

If they're law abiding citizens, absolutely not.  They should be given a path to legal residence status, and ultimately citizenship,  as long as they stay out of trouble.

That being said, anyone doing immigration enforcement during a disaster of this scale needs to be kicked in the baby-bag with whatever iron jackboot they're sporting around at the time.  People need help or they might die.  Farking help them.

the immigration people were setting up check points to catch illegals as the storm was bearing down on Houston.   Don't forget - trump also has said he believes cops should be able to beat up people as they're putting them into the squad car. not a lot of trust to be had here, ya know?

The problem is that every dickbag says that they're the worst of criminals for having dared even enter the country. I spent over a decade teaching piano, strings, steel drums, and band to immigrant children (from Somalian and Iraqi refugees to your every-day Mexican border-hoppers). Ninety two percent of my students were Mexican/Chicano, seven percent African refugees, and one percent "other." I was one of those few white teachers who actually lived IN the neighborhood, so I'd see my students at the grocery store and at Target. I had to run a map to the All-State festival to a mom at 10 p.m. the night before the concert. I was part of their community.

So when people go on a tirade about how immigrants are a drain on the system and ruining communities, I take it personally. And going after kids now and tearing apart families makes me stabby. It doesn't make us stronger. It doesn't make us great.

If a church is in a flood zone, I would not blame the pastor one bit for chasing everybody out while telling them to grab their families and head for the hills, then locking the place behind him.  Otherwise you will get some nutcase staying inside and drowning.

I don't know anything about the hydrological circumstances of the church referenced in the link, though.

Probably something to do with the witch hunt Russia investigation.

As for the undocumented workers, how about saying something realistic like, "we're going to need all the help we can get to clean this up.  If you've been living here illegally, stay and help and you will be given citizenship."  But that makes too much sense.
