Community not criminalization - Page 2

(8)

Policies like S-Comm manufacture the need for more detention facilities, ultimately benefitting corporate interests like the GEO private prison group. Its lucrative business depends on criminalization, and a culture of fear. If politicians aren't brave enough to survive the accusation that they are "soft on crime" in order to champion real change, then we the people will have to take it into our own hands. Immigrant communities, black communities, communities of color, and poor communities need to keep building the solidarity and the movement that will allow us to win, from San Francisco to Sacramento to DC. There is much more to be done, and we can only do it together.  

María Poblet is executive director of Causa Justa::Just Cause.

this is simply a troll barrier

it is a signpost to indicate to the reader that other anonymous posters on this thread are beginning to purposely diminish the conversation into reactionary hyperbole and/or petty, mean spirited, personal attacks and irrelevant bickering

the barrier is put in place to signal that there is probably little point in reading more replies in the thread past this point

proceed at your own risk

No enforcement of immigration laws. Open the borders and let anyone in. That is the best way to lower wages, bring our standards of living down to the level of other under developed nations, and ensure the continuing de-evolution of our country into a Socialist State. Sweet.

But I still want illegals detained and extradited.

Why don't we just give all homeless people lobster dinners every night and house them in mansions!!!

oh, wait, I'd be a complete idiot if I thought that's what the guy working in a homeless shelter was promoting when he says homelessness is a problem.
