This Is How ICE Stops Journalists From Reporting On Detained Immigrants

I honestly don’t know how you can read this first-hand report from journalist Molly Crabapple and think that abolishing ICE is a radical position. Read this whole damn thing.

Crabapple isn't the only journalist who experienced this Kafkaesque madness. A former investigative reporter for the New York Times confirmed that this kind of authoritarianism is nothing new for an organization created under George W. Bush.

A senior writer for CNN investigations echoed these thoughts too.

Even a non-journalist who sponsored an asylum seeker confirmed this thread as representative of her experience with ICE's general practices.

Abolish ICE. No civilized country needs a mass deportation force—let alone one who thinks that they’re not accountable to the public.
