Hirono: ICE Enforcing Law Is To Portray Illegals As Deserving ‘Cruelty And Hatred’


Plans for upcoming Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation raids on illegal aliens living in the country are an example of President Trump doing "everything he can to portray these people as the other and that they deserve all of our cruelty and hatred,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hi.) said on Thursday.

“First and foremost this is again the president sowing fear he's terrorizing these communities where the immigrants live because these are not going to be targeted arrests. He's going to spread a wide net sowing fear in multiple cities across the country. So it's all part of his plan to continue to do everything he can to portray these people as the other and that they deserve all of our cruelty and hatred,” Hirono told CNN.

“So yes, a lot of these people do have supposedly deportation orders. But you know we also know of cases of people who had deportation orders and who were appealing their deportation orders - so they're in different positions and during the entire process. But nonetheless, the bottom line is the president has no problems doing everything he can to terrorize undocumented people saying, ‘well they shouldn't come because it's illegal.’”

Hirono’s comments come following report that ICE agents will start raids nationally to arrest illegal aliens in several major cities this weekend.
