Can anybody honestly say that America should hold illegal immigrants forever? With no charges, no possibility of bond, nothing? Just hold them in a cell until they rot and die? Anybody besides John Ashcroft, that is.
The whole document in PDF format is available for your perusal, but it’s likely to ruin your weekend, so I wouldn’t if I were you.
Honestly, I’m afraid to say much more. I have various family members that are dealing the INS right now on various matters, and some of those folks are just vindicitive enough to make a note of my name and keep a list if I say too much. That’s been true regardless of which party is in the White House. The Ashcroft stuff, that’s new.
The last attorney general spent her time picking on religious wackos who kept to themselves and little Cuban boys, and all one at a time. This one leaves the wackos alone (good) but widens the aim on “attempted immigrants” to include, well, basically everybody.
Is there nothing we can do to impeach the Attorney General? How does that work, anyway?
