    Re: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.)

    don't worry, be happy.

    Videos appear to show armed militia detaining migrants at US-Mexico border

    Armed rightwing militia members detained a large group of migrants at the US-Mexico border and coordinated with US border patrol agents to have them arrested, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, in a series of actions the civil liberties organization called a “kidnapping” and a flagrant violation of the law.

    Several videos taken at the border in New Mexico this week appeared to show men belonging to a group that calls itself the United Constitutional Patriots approaching migrant families and children, ordering them to sit down, calling federal agents on them, and at one point potentially misrepresenting themselves by saying “border patrol” as they approached.

    “The Trump administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law,” the ACLU of New Mexico said in a letter to the state’s governor and attorney general, urging them to “immediately investigate this atrocious and unlawful conduct”.

    I hear ya but they give you tests in high school don't they? Most voters are high school grads, I'd venture.

    Do they teach Civics in school any more?

    With our 24 hour news cycle though, I would love to see a channel devoted 100% to how government runs and is structured. Probably have a hard time competing for ratings against "Keeping up with the Kardasians" or (insert any other reality show here).

    I LOVE C-Span but it mostly just covers proceedings....which I agree is useful for those unfamiliar with how government works.

    I guess I was thinking more along the lines of all the basic civics stuff that you should know as a citizen and also the things that might be asked during a citizenship test.

    For example:

    If you saw someone assaulting a lady would you intervene to stop it or would you stand idly by and call the police for help?

    So training to assassinate BO and HC is equivalent to helping a lady? Does it have to be any lady? Maybe specifically a little old lady? What about a guy who was being assaulted? At what part of the false equivalency argument between training to assassinate BO and HC and stopping an assault does it begin to break down?

    I imagine you were trying to create a false equivalency between militia people going down to the border to stop people from crossing illegally and that of a random good citizen stepping in to prevent a crime.

    At this point, as long as you are willing to go with this argument, you might as well go whole hog.

    So yes, if I were to purposefully drive to find and prevent ladies from being assaulted in a location that I did not live in, I would probably not call the police. I have another false equivalency. If you went to a restaurant and wanted food, would you call their take out number or just speak to the hostess?

    I know nothing about the group, I'm simply addressing a citizen detaining someone who has broken the law until law enforcement officials arrive to arrest the perpetrator. Is that wrong?
