ICE Raids - Detention Centers Not
About Immigration, All About Money!
CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
THEN THEY CAME
for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
THEN THEY CAME
for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
THEN THEY CAME
and by that time no one was left to speak up."
Chris Rock was right when he
said, "They've been asking me to join them in
their fight against the Mexicans but I ain't gonna
do it because I know when they kick out all the
Mexicans, we're Next!"
What did Deep Throat Say? "Follow the Money!"
In contrast to what many think, ICE [Immigration and Customs
Enforcement] has stepped up their raids across the country.
One would do well to ask himself, WHY?
Let's start with three of the largest, most recent ICE raids.
In New Bedford, MA., 300+ Seamstress Workers making backpacks
were swept away to GEO Texas Detention Centers. In Postville,
IA, 500+ Meatpackers were swept off to GEO Texas Detention Centers.
In Laurel, MS, 600+ technical workers were swept off to a GEO
Detention Center in Jena, LA.
NOTE CAREFULLY WHERE ALL THOSE ILLEGALS WHO WERE SWEPT UP
IN THESE RAIDS "ENDED UP" - IN GEO "DETENTION FACILITIES."
ICE raids carefully "tailored" to feed the growing demand of America's
private prison system for prisoners.
Very obviously, these raids are "feeding" illegal aliens into
GEO facilities to "fatten" the bottom line of GEO's books. ILLEGALS
ARE RAPIDLY BECOMING "FRESH MEAT" for the private prison"
industry in the United States. And why is that? - because these
"for-profit-prisons" are paid per diem (per head/per
day) basis. Maximum profit is made if the centers are filled
NOTE FROM ANTIPAS:
One must continually bear in mind why there is a never-ending
migration of illegal aliens into the United States: John
Ross, a well-known New York Times reporter in Mexico
says that it is all part of the dark side of the "new
global economy" - one which goes far beyond "merely"
displacing wage-earners in First World countries like the
United States, France and Germany, but one which also obliterates
the peasant agriculture of Third World nations such as Mexico,
Argentina, Chile and India.
Specifically, free trade (i.e., "globalization")
undercuts peasant farming in the Third World by making it
compete against the giant agribusinesses of the First World
- concerns that are located principally in the United States
and to a lesser degree in Canada and Australia. In the process,
peasant agriculture is ground down under the impress of
a First World agricultural juggernaut, eventually resulting
in the forced migration of these peasants from their homes
in rural areas to the city where they are pressed into a
kind of industrial slavery for re-located First World industries
(like Ford, General Motors, General Electric, etc.), the
products of which are not destined for Third World customers,
but for First World consumers. The vacated peasant lands
are then gathered up and reconstituted as large farms very
often controlled by interests in the employ of the very
First World agribusinesses which destroyed them in the first
Mexican nanny in the home of
a rich American in LA.
Naturally enough, only a small portion of those peasants
who have been forced off their land can find industrial
employment in re-located First-World companies that have
sprung up in Mexico to take advantage of their cheap labor.
Their only alternative is to migrate to the U.S. - there
to be treated as virtual slave-labor in the homes of rich
and middle-class Americans, or in restaurants and other
firms who want to take advantage of their cheap-labor, OR
to feed the cells of private prisons where they are often
used on chain gangs along the nations roadways.
Interestingly, GEO's Jena prison facility (see above) was newly
opened in late 2007 - a prison that GEO said they would fill
to capacity by 2008. The 2008 Laurel raid (again, see above)
filled Jena to capacity.
NOTE FROM ANTIPAS:
GEO styles itself as "... A WORLD LEADER IN PROVIDING
PRIVATE CORRECTION AND DETENTION PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES
... to federal, state and local government agencies
... GEO offers a diversified array of turnkey services which
include design, construction, financing, and operations
... To date, GEO manages 61 facilities encompassing approximately
60,000 beds ... Our team, of over 13,000 professionals,
is dedicated to the ... care of the 60,000 plus individuals
assigned to our custody on behalf of federal, state, and
local government agencies ..."
THAT'S THE GEO STORY, BUT THE REALITY IS VERY DIFFERENT.
GEO Group has been accused of gross civil rights violations
relating to adequate access to food and medical care, especially
at it's Northwest Detention Center, including unlawful interrogations
and coercing inmates to sign paperwork they would otherwise
not be inclined to.
One inmate lost 50 pounds, having arrived at 190 pounds,
citing rotten and unsanitary food as the cause.
Between 2005 and 2009, at least eight people have died
at the GEO Group-operated George W. Hill Correctional Facility
in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, the state's only privately
run jail. Several of those deaths resulted in lawsuits by
family members who say the facility did not provide adequate
medical care or proper supervision for offenders. In January
2009, GEO pulled out of operations at this facility, "citing
underperformance and frequent litigations" as the reasons.
One woman was raped by fellow inmates after being placed
in a coed prison block, and subsequently killed herself
in 2007. The family filed a lawsuit and settled with GEO
Group for $200,000.
A full scale prisoner uprising occurred in 2007 at the
GEO Group-operated New Castle Correctional Facility in Indiana.
The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel reported that "Authorities
were investigating whether the six-hour fracas that involved
about 500 offenders started Tuesday afternoon because some
of the newly arrived prisoners from Arizona were upset about
their treatment at the medium-security men's prison."
In 2008, Sandy Morgan, a schizophrenic woman who suffered
from a thyroid condition died at the jail where she had
been held for six weeks. Family members said she did not
receive her medication during her incarceration. On April
25, 2008, Kenneth Keith Kallenbach died from cystic fibrosis,
an inherited chronic disease after being denied his medication.
He had been housed at the jail since mid-March. Kallenbach's
mother, Fay, said her son called her a week before his death,
asking her to intervene and help him receive better treatment.
An inmate in 2008 claimed he was denied access to dental
care for a cavity, and as a result it festered into an ulcer
that burst open requiring three surgeries. Conditions in
a private prison in Texas were such that three riots broke
out within a few months of each other in late 2008 and early
2009. Reporters attempting to document the situation were
asked to leave the private property.
The question to be asked on all of this is, does anyone care
about the prisoner abuse that is rampant in those detention
facilities into which "illegals" are being funneled? The answer
is NO, and that's because GEO spends millions of dollars
annually to hide what's going on - WITH MOST OF THE MONEY
GOING TO THE "POLITICAL" ALLIES OF THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT -
including the friends of Tom Delay, Ray Allen, Scott Gilmore,
ad nauseum - ALL OF WHOM STYLE THEMSELVES AS "BORN-AGAIN
WHEN MONEY AND RACISM ARE MIXED TOGETHER - THE RESULT WILL
BE THE SAME AS IT WAS IN THE THIRD REICH WHEN PROFITS FOR I.G.
FARBEN BECAME INTERTWINED WITH THE HOLOCAUST.
I.G. Farben industrial complex in Auschwitz were Jews
were used as slave-labor; the New Castle Correctional
Institute were Mexicans are put to work in menial tasks
designed to enhance profits for GEO. It is precisely
here that Americans should ask themselves, What country
leads the world in the number of prisoners? Well, it's
not China! - it's the United States, with two million
incarcerated-and the number doubles every 10 years.
Inmates are overcrowded, abused by guards, terrorized
by other, violent prisoners, WITH PRIVATE PRISONS SUCH
AS NEW CASTLE CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTE TAKING EVER GREATER
NUMBERS OF PRISONERS WITH EVERY PASSING YEAR. These
"illegals" are used in chain gangs in a growing number
of states to "beautify" roads and bridges, parks and
People in the United States condemn talk that compares what
is beginning to happen here to what happened in Nazi Germany;
they like to believe that the RACIAL RAGE that was whipped
up against the Jews in Germany couldn't possible happen here.
But that rage didn't occur "out of the blue." It took some twenty
years (1921 - 1941) for it to fester among the German people
before it resulted in the Holocaust. AND THAT FESTERING HAS
NOW BEGUN IN THE U.S. - EGGED ON BY SUCH NEWS OUTLETS AS FOX
NEWS AND SUPPORTED BY RICHY-RICHES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY DESPERATE
TO DEFLECT RAGE AWAY FROM THEMSELVES AND ON TO SOMEONE ELSE.
Consider, for example, the rage that seemed to manifest itself
"out of no-where recently in Omaha, Nebraska - in the "heart
of the country" (so to speak). Very obviously, this rage had
been FESTERING" for some time among the people of Omaha
- and it EXPLODED to the forefront as the result of a
simple soccer match.
THIS IS THE KIND OF RAGE THAT TURNED ORDINARY GERMANS INTO
MONSTERS, AND IT WILL TURN ORDINARY AMERICANS INTO MONSTERS
RACIAL RAGE AGAINST
"OTHER" IN OUR MIDST
Correctness" has been able to tamp down this rage for
some time now, but that rage is now beginning to break
through the bonds of "political correctness" and into
the open - fueled by rage against so-called "illegal
aliens;' it's only a matter of time before this rage
breaks out of these particular ethnic confines and spreads
to other minority Americans. Black comedian Chris Rock
is right when he says: "They've been asking me
to join them in their fight against the Mexicans, but
I ain't gonna do it because I know when they kick out
all the Mexicans, we're Next!"]
We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the
eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
