No Guantanamo In DC

Author


  • Ruth Castel-Branco, DC Jobs With Justice

Date Created


  • 04 Mar 2010



 

This work is in the public domain

"We don't want a Guantanamo in the Nation's Capital" said Johnny Barnes, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of the National Capital Area, before a packed audience during yesterday's community dialogue at the University of the District of Columbia on the "Secure Communities" program.



The controversial program, recently implemented by the Metropolitan Police Department without community consultation, runs the fingerprints of everyone arrested in the District of Columbia through the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) database.

Although the program ostensibly seeks only to identify deportable immigrants and criminal aliens, "the reality is that the data is inaccurate and the process flawed," explained Michele Weslin. "Five percent of all hits have proven to be US citizens," said Weslin, "Is this really a good use of taxpayer resources? Are mass deportations the solution?"



The program will only further marginalize immigrants and deepen distrust towards the police, argued Ronald Hampton, Executive Director of the National Black Police Association. "If there was real community policing in DC, the community would have been consulted before the implementation of this program. By broadening the potential for racial profiling, Secure Communities will not only hurt Hispanics, it will hurt Blacks."



In North Carolina, the program has already had disastrous effects, said the ACLU's Rebecca Headen. "Checkpoints have been set up where immigrants live, racial profiling is rampant, families have been ripped apart, local magistrates hold suspects for longer than allowed."



Despite concerns like this, the Department of Homeland Security is actively promoting the program in hopes of implementing in every jail in the country by 2013. "The Secure Community Program is nothing but 287 with lipstick and I hope that everyone one of you will write, call and visit Councilmember Mendelson and Graham to ask them to stop this practice," Barnes urged.



The Metro Washington Council passed a resolution in opposition to the Secure Communities Program at last week's Council meeting.

(Quote from funk the war)

March 19th is the 7th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq and the occupation's going strong. It's time to Funk the War, light the bed on fire, and break free from this bad romance.

I really liked Cindy Sheehans letter to the president:

I copied it on my Zebra 3 Report Blog

It brought tears to my eys from my soul

3.1.10

Ok friends .... I have my tickets in will call, and the hostel that is 20 blocks away has confirmed my reservation. I have looked over the maps of the area, and I have started getting my camera gear ready for the road.


 

I put one of my cameras (the Don cam1) in the shop for a cleaning and tune up. Every now and then it will lock up and a flashing yellow icon is on my screen. So to correct it, I open the tape compartment and then reclose it, which will sometimes make it work. Today it wouldnt "act up" when I was showing the repair guy. Go figure ... at any rate it will be getting cleaned and primed.


 

Im glad I have the hostel confirmed .... I may stay at the Peace of Action camp but  I need a home base to work out of
