Immigrants in Trump’s America Now Deported for Running a Red Light

Jul 23, 2017 — News on the Net

Just before 7 a.m. on May 11, Jonatan Palacios quietly closed the door to his apartment in Haverford, Pennsylvania, to avoid waking his wife. In the parking lot, he got into his car to drive to the restaurant where he works as the head cook. But as he pulled out of his parking space, Palacios saw two law enforcement officers in his rearview mirror walking toward his car. As they got closer, Palacios, who is an undocumented immigrant, could see the small logo on the upper left side of their chests—and knew they were from immigration. He checked the door handles, and felt a moment of relief when he realized the doors had locked automatically.

The immigration agents knocked on the window and asked him to get out of his car. Palacios froze. After a few seconds, he told the agents through the glass that he needed to make some phone calls. He called his boss to tell him he wouldn’t make it to work, his lawyer, and his wife, an American citizen, who was still asleep in the apartment. She came to the parking lot to ask the agents if they had a warrant to arrest her husband.—More…

During an interview with President Donald J. Trump’s new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, Tapper inflated his background to make it seem as though he was more in touch with people with working- and middle-class beginnings than he really is. At one point late in the lengthy and testy interview—where Scaramucci even offered to bring CNN some Kleenex to wipe away its tears after what he says will be President Trump’s re-election victory in 2020—Scaramucci was discussing how he stands with the “people I grew up with.”—More…

Los Angeles Times: Fewer Illegals Means Higher Wages, More Farm Robots

Jul 22, 2017 — News on the Net

Agriculture companies in California are being forced to develop and deploy labor-saving machinery and techniques because reduced illegal immigration is allowing American farmworkers raise their poverty-level wages, according to Los Angeles Times.

But the double-dose of good news — more productive technology and higher American wages — is threatened by farm industry lobbyists who are pushing Congress to approve a much greater inflow of cheap-labor H-2A visa workers. An amendment approved last week would allow many more farm companies to ignore Americans workers and instead to hire cheap-labor from foreign-labor brokers.—More…
