Arrest on Site (of Brown Skin)

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 26, 2007

Marisa Trevino, of Latina Lista, blogs on the recent deportations of Latinos in Irving, Texas:

Between June 1, 2006 and September 18, 2007, at least 1,600 people have been deported. That’s about 1% of the city’s total population.

The Mayor of Irving says that the police are just doing an excellent job of law enforcement, but there are enough doubts to those claims to make the Mexican Consulate issue a rare travel warning to Mexican nationals — Avoid Irving, Texas. Looking Mexican can get you harassed and deported.
