All Those Detainees at O'Hare
All zero of them:
- So here are your tax dollars at work, supporting a group of lawyers who have helped absolutely zero people while there because NOT ONE person has been held, detained, or deported for anything related to the executive order signed by Trump. Customs Border Patrol has not received any orders yet regarding the new rules so anything they've done with any people trying to enter the US so far has been based on current law and regulations they follow. All of the "detainees" the media blatantly lie about, are people with paperwork issues going through secondary screening as they have forever.
The attorneys have been aimlessly wandering around the area of lower level terminal five with no permit as required by Department of Aviation rules and given an area to set up, again against DOA rules, and soliciting business, again without that pesky permit, since Saturday. On Sunday, your favorite midget ballerina paid them a visit of support and bought them coffee and pastries from an airport vendor. The mayor's office has called and demanded the pictured tables, chairs, lockable cabinets, and electrical run be provided IMMEDIATELY.
The demonstrators have been given inside and outside spaces for their demos based on the lawyer's and media's lies, again without any permitting normally required.
So if anyone has any desire to protest, picket, or solicit at O'Hare, come on down and refer to these groups if anyone tries to tell you that you need a permit.
Free cabinets, tables, chairs and electricity for no one detained (and only two sent back as far as we can tell):
Meanwhile, promised retiree healthcare continues to be an issue.
