Quote of note:

"I’m worried about…the role that CBP or ICE facilities can play in spreading diseases. The conditions that were described by the Inspector General’s report—cramming people into cells, telling people they don’t need soap. You could end up with people detained in the border patrol holding cells in horrible conditions for much longer than those cells were ever meant to hold anyone."

ICE’s New York Office Uses a Rigged Algorithm to Keep Virtually All Arrestees in Detention. The ACLU Says It’s Unconstitutional.

"In 2013, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement quietly began using a software tool to recommend whether people arrested over immigration violations should be let go after 48 hours or detained. The software’s algorithm supposedly pored over a variety of risk factors before outputting a decision."

"A new lawsuit, however, filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union and Bronx Defenders, alleges that the algorithm doesn’t really make a decision, at least not one that can result in a detainee being released. Instead, the groups said, it’s an unconstitutional cudgel that’s been rigged to detain virtually everyone ICE’s New York Field Office brings in, even when the government itself believes they present a minimal threat to public safety."

I can't say this is very encouraging. Looks like the Gestapo will be rolling immigrant round-ups any day now... this is not a good sign.

Border Patrol Will Deploy Elite Tactical Agents to Sanctuary Cities

"The Trump administration is deploying law enforcement tactical units from the southern border as part of a supercharged arrest operation in sanctuary cities across the country, an escalation in the president’s battle against localities that refuse to participate in immigration enforcement."

"The specially trained officers are being sent to cities including Chicago and New York to boost the enforcement power of local ICE officers, according to two officials who are familiar with the secret operation. Additional agents are expected to be sent to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, N.J."

"The move reflects President Trump’s persistence in cracking down on sanctuary cities, localities that have refused to cooperate in handing over immigrants targeted for deportation to federal authorities. It comes soon after the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security announced a series of measures that will affect both American citizens and immigrants living in those places."

Weiß jemand, was eine kostengünstige Lösung ist, für eine #Monatskarte #ICE der #Bahn noch den Anschluss in #Düsseldorf für 5 #Ubahn Haltestellen dazuzubuchen? Durch MwSt. Senkung wäre das jetzt eine Alternative zum Auto, aber nicht wenn je Tag noch 6€ für Ubahn dazukommen.

Funfact die gesamte Strecke (einfach) kostet:
Nahverkehr 8,65 €
Fernverkehr 10,60 €
Monatskarte Nahverkehr gesamte Strecke: 280 €

Naja und die Monatskarte Fernverkehr inkl. ICE kostet 228,00 €.

Wer ist den #Vielfahrer oder #Pendler in der #Bahn und hat da einen Tipp?

"Emails sent by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials expose how ICE used social media and information gleaned by for-profit data brokers to track down and arrest an immigrant in Southern California. In the emails, which were disclosed in federal court filings, officials discussed the relationship status of the person, noting that he was 'broken hearted', according to Facebook posts, and confirmed his identity through pictures posted at his father’s birthday party."

"ICE ultimately arrested the person after he 'checked in' to a Home Depot on Facebook."

"The emails are a rare glimpse into the ever-widening surveillance dragnet ICE uses to track down immigrants who are subject to possible deportation. In this case, ICE used Thomson Reuters’s controversial CLEAR database, part of a growing industry of commercial data brokers that contract with government agencies, essentially circumventing barriers that might prevent the government from collecting certain types of information."

"Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are using incredibly invasive surveillance technology as part of their continued efforts to target and tear apart communities across the country. They’re doing so in near-total secrecy and without any public accountability."

"The ACLU has been asking ICE and CBP for basic information about this program for years, and now we’re asking a federal court to intervene."

How to Set Up Your Android Phone for an Emergency | Make Tech Easier

Having your emergency contact information on your Android device could end up saving your life one day. By having valuable information such as medical info on your phone, paramedics can know what you’re allergic to and act accordingly.

You don’t need to install a third-party app to have this information on your phone. By knowing where to go on your phone, you can have this life-saving information handy.
My phone doesn't have an Emergency information section in the Settings. But I installed an ICE (in case of emergency) app, which is on the front screen. The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back, so I'm assuming that if I'm incapacitated any paramedic is going to try the obvious.

The hotel chain Motel 6 agreed on Thursday to pay $12 million to settle a lawsuit filed by Washington state claiming hotel guest information was improperly provided to immigration officials, according to Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

Updated at 7:50 a.m. ET

The hotel chain Motel 6 has agreed to pay $12 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the state of Washington after several locations gave information on thousands of guests to Immigration and Customs Enforcement without warrants.

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Thursday that Motel 6 shared the information of about 80,000 guests in the state from 2015 to 2017.

That led to targeted investigations of guests with Latino-sounding names, according to Ferguson. He said many guests faced questioning from ICE, detainment or deportation as a result of the disclosures.

Itʼs the second settlement over the companyʼs practice in recent months.

Motel 6 also has signed a legally binding [1]commitment to no longer share guest information without a warrant at any of its locations nationwide, a practice the chain says it has already ended.

"Motel 6ʼs actions tore families apart and violated the privacy rights of tens of thousands of Washingtonians," Ferguson said [2]in a statement. "Our resolution holds Motel 6 accountable for illegally handing over guestsʼ private information without a warrant."

The company told NPR in an emailed statement that, as part of the agreement, it would "continue to enforce its guest privacy policy, which prohibits the sharing of guest information except in cases where a judicially enforceable warrant or subpoena is present, or local law requires this information."

"The company has also implemented a system of additional controls to ensure corporate oversight and compliance in cases where law enforcement requests are made."

[3]The Phoenix New Times first uncovered the practice in September 2017 when reporter Antonia Farzan investigated two Motel 6 locations in Phoenix.

"We got a tip that this was happening, started talking to local immigration attorneys and definitely kept hearing from people that this was a trend," Farzan told [4]NPRʼs Ari Shapiro at the time. "They didnʼt really know what was behind it but that they kept seeing people get picked up at Motel 6."

Following initial media reports, Motel 6 [5]released a statement saying that the practice had been discontinued and that it would issue a directive to each of its locations to clarify "that they are prohibited from voluntarily providing daily guest lists to ICE." The hotel said at the time that the practice was implemented "at the local level without the knowledge of senior management."

Washington state [6]sued the company a few months later, alleging employees at seven locations in the Puget Sound region violated state consumer-protection law when they also released guest information.

Ferguson said at the time that the hotels would turn over entire guest lists to authorities.

"According to our interviews with employees at Motel 6," he [7]told NPRʼs Scott Simon, "ICE agents would circle the names that looked Latino-sounding and ran those names through a database and then would detain individuals based on those random checks."

The statement from Ferguson about Thursdayʼs settlement detailed several cases of guests whose names were provided to ICE, including one Seattle man who stayed at a Motel 6 near Sea-Tac for one night, wrapping Christmas presents for his children.

"ICE agents approached him in the hotelʼs parking lot, detained him and deported him some days later," the statement reads. "The man was the sole provider for the household, and his wife is currently struggling to support their toddler and four other children."

Motel 6 has agreed to also train its employees not to release guest information improperly and maintain a 24-hour hotline to help employees when they receive requests for information. The company will also be required to create a tool on its website for guests to report possible violations.

The state says more than $10 million of the settlement fund will be [8]paid out to affected guests — including those who did not have any contact with ICE after their information was disclosed.

In November, Motel 6 settled [9]a separate lawsuit filed in Arizona by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. That lawsuit [10]identified eight Latino plaintiffs who were detained, including one who was deported.
