We can turn millions of Americans into virtual prisoners in their own homes, but we can’t deport violent infected illegal aliens. A pandemic might suffice to deprive Americans of their rights, but not illegal alien invaders of their right to invade this country.
An altercation over coronavirus tests broke out between federal immigration detainees and officers at a detention center in Massachusetts, ending with three detainees sent to a hospital and $25,000 in damage to the center, authorities said.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Friday that 10 ICE detainees refused to go to the center’s medical unit for testing for coronavirus after “each reported having at least two symptoms of COVID-19.”
They may have actual symptoms, or their lobby has told them to fake symptoms and demand release, and when their bluff was called, they turned violent.
“The health care professionals told me they had to be tested in the medical unit because of the reported symptoms. The detainees refused to go into the medical unit for testing,” said Hodgson in a statement. “The detainees refused to comply, became combatant and ultimately put the lives of themselves and many Bristol County officers at risk with their reckless actions.”
Hodgson said that detainees caused extensive damage to the center after breaking windows and ripping washing machines and pipes off the walls. The detainees have been moved to single cells pending disciplinary action, COVID-19 testing and criminal charges, he said, adding that damages are estimated at $25,000.
The sensible and reasonable solution is to return them to their own countries. They should not be our problem. Nor should they be endangering the lives of law enforcement officers.
Carol Rose, executive director of the ACLU of Massachusetts, is calling for an independent investigation after receiving “deeply disturbing” reports on the incident.
It’s okay, Carol. Just pretend that they’re Americans and you can safely ignore the problem. Just like you do the current constant violations of the Bill of Rights.
