Immigration Groups Sue Over New Haven Raids

Immigration groups sue over New Haven raids

New Haven (AP)

Two immigrant advocacy groups are suing the federal government over the recent New Haven raids, in which more than 30 suspected illegal immigrants were arrested. Junta for Progressive Action and Unidad Latina en Accion filed suit Friday in U.S. District Court against the Department of Homeland Security. They want that agency to release records on how its Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents coordinated the raids which happened back in June. City leaders and the immigrant-rights groups have questioned whether it was retaliation for New Haven's new ID card program. Federal officials have said the sweeps were planned weeks in advance. They say it had no connection to the new ID program, which is open to all New Haven residents including illegal immigrants. Both groups have also raised money to help free the detainees on bond.

Wild Thing's comment........

What the hell times do we live in? So now we have to ask WHY is it authorities are enforcing the law?
Furthermore, the fact that such groups operate in broad day light and sue the government and raise money and are hailed by many in the country as moral paragons tells me, yet again, that our side is still losing the crucial PR war.

This is about intimidation. This is about people who know the system and are using the system. They will look to sue the informants as an intimidation tactic. Jamming if you will. Lawyers who represent these people should have their licenses pulled.

I guess Alberto Gonzales will defend us. Hahahaha! What a joke!

Somebody PLEASE stand up and stop this insanity!

The government will just take token action against illegal immigrants, and then will cave when pressured by the illegals’ interest groups; just like they cave when the islamists whine and seethe.

At the end of the day it will be up to the American people to take care of this problem. The sad thing is, only THEN will the government take any action, but that action will be directed against the American people who were just doing what the government should have been doing all along!

How is it that America has come to the point that enforcing the law is grounds for a law suit?

These groups doing the suing are racist groups. They represent Latinos only. By their title they are racist. Where are the government agencies that are supposed to protect us against racism?? Where is the EEOC making sure that all landscaping crews have a quota of Whites, Blacks and Asians? Where is the Leftist media investigating and reporting on the unfairness of these Latino only groups?

I guess the Mexicans are the new victims of the left. The former, victims: Women, Blacks and other assorted minorities had better take note, You free lunch is over.

Now it is time to ante up and pay for the new victims. Regardless, if they are not Legal citizens, it doesn't matter.

What matters is the US has a lot and it is time we supplied the rest of the world. It doesn't matter if the people we are now suppose to support are lazy and shiftless, no that doesn't matter,... Just pay and pay and pay.

And by God we will all be broke in the next 10 years.

It is really rediculous, why we need all these Mexicans for labor, everything we buy today is made in China.

Pretty soon Hispanics will be the majority minority in America. Jesse Jackson, an American citizen, better wake up fast as he'll soon be kicked to the curb by democrat politicians as they court their new voter base.

Bob, yep and the Republicans in leadership that are not waking up will learn quickly they have zero votes from these illegals.

Lynn you right and it boggles my mind why our country keeps giving them anything.

I believe that events such as these are just triggers before the storm; sooner or later the "silent" majority will wake up, and when they do, it will NOT be a pretty sight.

It sounds subversive, but events like these are the REASON that the Founding Fathers included the 2ND Amendment. Our government has become too corrupt and is failing in it's BASIC Constitutional responsibilty to protect the United States from what I believe to be a basically hostile foreign invasion. Indeed, they are ABETTING that invasion with their policies.

The Founders were aware that such an abdication of responsibilities by the National and/or State could occur and provided the citizenry with the (final) Option of armed revolt via the 2nd Amendment.

I wish it weren't so, but the time for that Option may be all too near. It would behoove all citizens to prepare for that eventuality; trying to avert the need to execute that Option, but being ready in case it does occur.
