7th deadliest shooting in US history on Saturday w/ a white supremacist saying motive was to scare immigrants from coming here, spreading fear thru Hispanic community. 4 days later, largest immigration raid in US history was executed by Govt w/ 680 arrests. Why not delay this?
2) I mean, if you step back from this and just look at the optics and the timing, it’s like the US Govt read the manifesto and said, “Okey doke.
Let’s get to work.” I know the raids were planned for a year. My point is, wasn’t there any leader to say, “Hey, let’s wait on this?”
3) This week in America has a portion of the population reeling. I know people in agriculture/ poultry towns in the South. Poor migrants enticed, forced, or out of desperation came years ago. These aren’t violent people. But, doing this massive raid 4 days after a mass shooting?
