I find the recent immigration raids very disturbing. Leaving aside the wisdom of our immigration policy, it seems that the DHS instituted mass raids on a flimsy pretext, may have initially detained people based on skin color, and—most disturbing of all to me—shipped a lot of people, including legal immigrants, to undisclosed locations in unmarked buses and denied them access to lawyers and family. In view of the Administration's claims that it can lock people up without judicial process, we should be very very worried about any attempts to push this sort of thing farther.

This is also worrisome.
