Sheriff Garcia Looks For Better Ways To Racially Profile
My friend, Stace, from DosCentavos.net beat me to the punch to blog about Sheriff Adrian Garcia’s decision to create an advisory commission on 287(g). The 287(g) program essentially deputizes local law enforcement to look for and hand over people suspected of being undocumented. Stace says:
When I heard of Sheriff Adrian Garcia’s 287(g) commission, I immediately asked some of my friends in the pro-Migrant and Latino civil rights advocacy groups to check and see if they had been invited.
I’m sure the Sher’ff’s friends will tell me to give him a little credit.
Garcia said the advisory committee will not be a forum for debate on whether to continue the program. It will instead give him feedback on how to improve how it’s run.
Yes, how can we improve our racial profiling? And can we get away with violating any part of the constitution and still get re-elected?
One last message, Sheriff Garcia: stop handing your people over to the gringo or pretty soon your people won’t want you back!
