ICE detains man with Down syndrome and plans to deport to Guatemala. He has no family there, as they all live in Florida. Arrested on his job site. Came here at 14 when his mom died. #AbolishICE #AbolishICE #AbolishICE #AbolishICE #AbolishICEhttps://t.co/oXCAJ2f0Lb

I am so angry. There are so many outrages. But this one … ICE is magnifying the vulnerability of this Latinx disabled man. Meanwhile, based on the reporting, it feels like things were going pretty well for him with a strong support structure and a job locally.
“Just following orders” is not, and never has been, a moral statement. When this era ends, we’re going to have to abolish ICE. It needs to become a consensus position. And the people who did this are going to need to find other lines of work.
