Two-Thirds of Americans Live in the 'Constitution-Free Zone'

Recent Greyhound bus raids have revealed an obscure law that gives Border Patrol authority 100 miles inside borders, across the entire perimeter of the country

Americans living within 100 miles of a U.S. border live in "Constitution-free zones," according to civil liberties advocates, where border patrol agents can search any vehicle without a warrant.

(CD) - In Hartford, Vermont, last year, U.S. Border Patrol agents boarded a Greyhound bus as it arrived from Boston, asking passengers about their citizenship and checking the IDs of people of color or those with accents. In January, they stopped a man in Indio, California, as he was boarding a Los Angeles-bound bus. In questioning him about his immigration status, they told him his “shoes looked suspicious,” like those of someone who had recently crossed the border. 

Families of Police Victims Create Community Amidst Tragedy

(UR) - Roseville, MN - Over a dozen family members of loved ones killed by police graced a packed banquet in remembrance of Cordale Handy on Saturday, March 18, 2018. At the Radisson Hotel in Roseville, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul, around 100 people came out to honor and remember Cordale Handy, as well as many other victims and to share a space to grieve, support, and heal. Near the end of the banquet, Kim Handy-Jones gave the families of Marcus Golden and Jaffort Smith donations of headstones for their gravesites.

Illinois Nazi Wins GOP Primary for Congress

(BoingBoing) - The Illinois Republican Party was unable to draft a candidate against Holocaust denier Arthur Jones, and now he's won the Republican primary in Illinois' Third Congressional District. Jones is a former member of the American Nazi Party and, as a student at the University of Wisconsin, founded a conservative newspaper and was active in the Young Republicans and a Nationalist Socialist student group. The good news is that the Third Congressional District is heavily Democratic, but in these crazy times of Russian meddling and the refusal of the White House to disavow American Nazis, there's no telling who will win.

La Asamblea de Wisconsin terminó la sesión sin aprobar el proyecto de ley anti-inmigrante AB190/SB275

Republicado con permiso de Voces de la Frontera

MADISON, WISCONSIN – La Asamblea de Wisconsin terminó la madrugada del viernes sin aprobar un proyecto de ley antiinmigrante, AB190/SB275, que hubiera permitido a los empleados públicos locales de hacer perfil racial, interrogar y detener a los miembros de la comunidad por su estatus migratorio. El proyecto de ley también obligaría a las autoridades a entregar a los inmigrantes al Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (conocido como ICE en sus siglas en inglés). Voces de la Frontera junto con otras organizaciones, granjeros y líderes religiosos empezamos una lucha muy fuerte en oposición a esta ley anti-inmigrante.

Republished with permission from Voces de la Frontera

MADISON, WISCONSIN – The Wisconsin Assembly adjourned early Friday morning without passing an anti-immigrant bill, AB190/SB275, that would have allowed local employees to racially profile, interrogate, and detain community members for immigration status. The bill also would have mandated authorities turn immigrants over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This comes following months of pressure from immigrant community members and diverse supporters including farmers and religious leaders who urged lawmakers to reject the bill.
