you just can't make this stuff up

Civil rights activists in Florida are issuing travel warnings and tips on how to avoid law enforcement.

A Florida immigration coalition composed of activist groups, such as the Council of American-Islamic Relations of Florida, the Women’s March, and the Florida Immigrant Coalition, are urging anyone who’s in the country illegally to “reconsider visiting Florida and especially recommended to avoid high-risk areas, including ports, airports, and Greyhound stations,” as reported by the Miami New Times.

Activists have staged events across the state to get out the word to illegal immigrants who are thinking about vacationing in Florida during Spring Break.

You mean that's all we needed to do, send a warning not to come, and they don't come. Brilliant in its simplicity

I think Obama's numbers versus Bush are more interesting.

The concern I have is that Obama prioritized deportations from the bottom of the barrel where as Trump is going after anyone including a lot of people that embody American values more than many Americans.
