AFSC's Mary Zerkel makes the case that using drones in immigration enforcement is a waste of taxpayer money--and questions why the U.S. is using this military technology to patrol the border with Mexico.
The leaves are turning and the feel of Fall is in the chilly morning air. And if you are like me, your calendar is bursting with activities. I want to call your attention to the two immigration related events, one for Massachusetts and one for Rhode Island. October 3rd the Massachusetts legislature will hold a hearing on the TRUST Act at 10am the Hearing Room A-2. The TRUST Act would direct MA law enforcement not to funnel people into the unjust deportation system (were well over half of those held for deportation have committed NO crimes).
