Angry feminists protest ICE, claim they are white supremacists

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst hosted the 42nd NE School for Women in Unions and Worker Organizations last week, and female activists had a lot to say regarding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Campus Reform reported that the conference, which was $560 for attendees with accommodations and $300 without, featured talks regarding white supremacy, white power and overall whiteness.

“My job as a white person is to talk to white people about white supremacy,” Barbara Madeloni, president of the Massachusetts Teachers Assocation and former UMass-Amherst education lecturer, said, according to a tweet.

Leading female activists encouraged attendees to view the ICE agency as the enemy, claiming the government organization will stop at nothing to detain them.

“As members of labor unions- we must see ICE as a tool to prevent workers 4 standing up 4 rights,” said history teacher Dora Leland. “ICE uses deceptive methods to detain – awareness is key! All people have rights.”

“Young workers, first time attendees, women from underrepresented groups, and those working in non-traditional settings” were given partial scholarships to attend the conference, as the exorbitant price was too much for some.

ICE, while accomplishing more than any other agency during Trump’s tenure in office, has endured much criticism since the current president arrived in office. Making the agency’s job more difficult is a disconnect between federal crackdowns on illegal immigration and local initiatives to naturalize thousands of illegal aliens.

ICE Chief Thomas Homan isn’t having any part of an argument for lessening ICE’s power and authority, considering the agency’s role is to safeguard the U.S.:

“People who don’t think we should enforce immigration law — I wish they’d hang out with me for a week. I wish they were with me in Phoenix, Arizona, — people held hostage. A guy with duct tape all over his body, with a hole, poked out in his mouth where he breathed through a straw for days until they paid his fee. They weren’t with me on the trail in the Border Patrol where we found dead aliens abandoned by smugglers. They weren’t with me standing in the back of that traffic trailer with a 5-year-old boy who suffocated in his father’s arms.”

Earlier this week, Homan threatened sanctuary city leaders with charges of violating federal anti-smuggling laws by encouraging local law enforcement to help suspected illegal immigrants avoid his ICE officers. He also criticized sanctuary city policy for keeping dangerous illegals out of jail, where they can be easily and safely rounded up, and in the streets, where the process is markedly more dangerous. He called it a politicization of his officers’ safety.
