(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

ICE's John Morton: Your Taxpayer Dollars To Fund Bingo & Movie Nights For Illegals


Do you remember John Morton? From my May 24th post:

The assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), John Morton, has said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities. Mr Morton, his Eminence, has regally declared that Arizona's law is "not good government."

Your memory being so refreshed, would it shock you to learn that your federal taxpayer dollars -- as advocated by Mr Morton -- are now to soon pay for art classes, bingo and continental breakfast on the weekends for illegal immigrants detained in ICE-contracted facilities?

But wait; it gets better. Additionally, there will be a "softening of the look of the facility” with hanging plants and fresh carrot sticks. ICE will allow for the “free movement” of low-risk detainees, expand visiting hours and provide unmonitored phone lines.

More: there are, per the Houston Chronicle story, "plans to relax restrictions on the movement of low-risk detainees and efforts to reduce and eliminate pat-down searches."

More: there will be movie nights, bingo, arts & crafts, dance and cooking classes, tutoring and computer training, self-service beverage and fresh vegetable bars, four + hours of recreation to allow for "robust aerobic exercise."

More: eliminating lockdowns and lights-out for low risk detainees; allowing visitors to stay as long as they like in a 12-hour period; providing a unit manager so detainees have someone to report problems to other than a guard.

More: allowing low-risk detainees to wear their own clothing or other "non-penal attire"; providing e-mail access and Internet-based free phone service.

Ladies and gentlemen, I offer: your hard-earned federal tax dollars at work.

So apparently your goal is to increase my blood pressure. Done.

Rita: uh, not exactly. However, you were likely as pleased as I was about this news. . .

Information is power. And the goal of the current administration is to keep you predominantly in the dark as much as possible. Transparency? Not hardly. Witness the obfuscation and interference with regard to, recently, Kagan.

So, we are now running super summer camps for illegals...

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just send them back home?

AJ: and that, sir, is a perfect portrayal. A super summer camp for illegals.

Cheaper? Yes.

As soft or understanding of their irascible plight?

No.

I tell you and each and every one of my readers: the longer you condone this administration, the longer it will suck the blood from your productive veins, the very marrow from each and every major productive bone.

Ok...so let me get this straight. They want to have a country club for the least threatening illegals? What happens when a gang makes these people do their dirty work for them, since they'll have less supervision? Detainees are like inmates, scum. They broke a law, and need to be kept away from society. Period. These tree humping hug a thugs need to understand this BZ. I honestly think we need a tragedy to happen via one of these detainees. Then peoples eyes will be open. Sad, but true. I was going to become a border patrol officer, but my infantry trigger finger I think is way too happy.

I wonder, can I go stay there for a while you think? Sounds like a nice break from the daily grind. They're going to do my laundry too, right? I bet they have daycare, probably even bilingual! I'll pack up the kids and call it summer camp.

Bed & breakfast at Uncle Sam's expense.

Mrs Bunker: of course there's daycare. With the internet access you could continue to write your blog as well! Think of all the new friends you'd meet!
