Is This The Start of the Finish?

I wonder if it happened in Germany like this:

From the article:

"DSS Commissioner Harry Spence and dozens of social workers made an emergency trip to Texas this weekend, interviewing 206 workers in detention centers to identify any more with children who had been left parentless.


The parents were mostly single mothers but included fathers as well, he said. The children ranged in age from 2 to 16, and a few had medical conditions that required special care, including one child that required a feeding tube. All were believed to be born in the United States and therefore U.S. citizens.
He said he was incensed that ICE told social workers about the raid, then denied them access when it was occurring because it was a "law enforcement issue.""

What excuse did the Nazis use to round up the first groups of Jews? Did everyone else say,

"Oh well, it's only Jews. They deserve it."

Because that's what they are saying here:

"Oh, well, it's only illegal immigrants. They deserve it."

For God's sake, people! Wake up! This is your government. This is Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, partially owned by Dick Cheney, building "detention centers" (read: prisons), all over the country.

"In the private sector, he was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Halliburton Energy Services; he is still a major stockholder."

...but that last is another story. Just don't think this detention center is an isolated occurrence.

(This is from Halliburton's official press releases; it's just run through tinyurl because the original link blew my margins.)

"The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency..."

"Immigration emergency?" what in the name of all that's holy is an "immigration emergency?"

Could that be code for "When we decide to round up everyone who has an accent?"
