Ending Unjust Deportations

 Ending unjust deportations

Most news stories of ICE raids on undocumented immigrants end with a headcount of people caught in the government's net. What's not seen on the evening news is the impact on communities where deportations tear families apart and create an environment of insecurity for those left behind. As deportations continue to occur in the Portland area, local communities are coming together to understand the issues driving these federal policies and to find solutions that are just and create true security.

Short Description: 
Your government wants to see you naked. Abe and Joe discuss last week's Supreme Court ruling.

Justice may be blind, but your government wants to see you naked. Last week's Supreme Court ruling in Florence v. Bd. of Chosen Freeholders lets law enforcement impose a strip search for virtually any offense. It's another nail in the coffin for the 4th Amendment, and part of the nascent security state which, rather than being pared back in the post-Bush era, is only becoming more firmly entrenched. Abe and Joe take a closer look.
