Trump no solo continúa llevando a cabo una vil diatriba antiinmigrante casi a diario, sino que los agentes del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas llevaron a cabo recientemente un siniestro ataque SWAT en Arizona. Y en la ciudad de Nueva York, los agentes de ICE están arrestando a inmigrantes haciéndose pasar por policías de Nueva York.La patrulla fronteriza realiza una redada de estilo militar en el campo No Más Muertes, 31 de julio de 2020.Morir de sed es aceptable en los EE.UU.El 5 de octubre, la Patrulla Fronteriza de Estados Unidos allanó el campo No Más Muertes en Arizona, cerca de la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México. Esta organización humanitaria, un grupo vital de personas heroicas que salvan vidas, informó desde el campamento que los agentes de ICE capturaron a 12 inmigrantes y detuvieron a siete voluntarios.No Más Muertes caracterizó los arrestos y detenciones como “un patrón de criminalización”.Esta fue la segunda incursión en el campamento del grupo desde este verano. Según el Washington Post, No Más Muertes “es un grupo religioso formado en 2004 en respuesta a una gran cantidad de migrantes que estaban muriendo mientras intentaban cruzar el brutal desierto de Sonora”. (6 de octubre)Un comunicado de prensa de No Más Muertes decía: “Después del atardecer del 5 de octubre, entró la Patrulla Fronteriza de los Estados Unidos. . . a Byrd Camp con una orden federal. Los voluntarios estuvieron retenidos durante tres horas mientras las personas que recibían atención médica, alimentos, agua y refugio del calor de más de 100 grados fueron detenidas.”Según la organización, la invasión estatal fue “una demostración masiva de fuerza armada” ya que la BORTAC (Unidad Táctica de la Patrulla Fronteriza) “descendió al campamento con un tanque blindado, un helicóptero y muchos vehículos marcados y sin marcas. Agentes armados con rifles de asalto persiguieron y aterrorizaron a quienes estaban recibiendo atención”. Además, rompieron puertas y ventanas y destruyeron la infraestructura y los suministros esenciales.El comunicado de prensa continuó: “Esta criminalización de la ayuda humanitaria y la atención médica que brindamos es solo un avance de las políticas mortíferas de la agencia. La Patrulla Fronteriza detiene a personas en instalaciones inseguras y mortales donde la negligencia médica es desenfrenada y los abusos a los derechos humanos están bien documentados”.Para enviar mensajes de solidaridad o una donación monetaria muy necesaria, visite: nomoredeaths.orgICE y policía, uno y el mismoLos neoyorquinos tienen todas las razones para sentirse intimidados y recelosos de la policía de Nueva York, después del infame debacle de “parar y registrar” que tuvo como objetivo las comunidades negras y morenas y el trágico asesinato en 2014 de Eric Garner, cuyo grito “no puedo respirar” generó protestas masivas.Entonces, cuando la policía llega a la puerta buscando a alguien y los policías resultan ser agentes de ICE, puede estar seguro de que la comunidad resistirá.Es por eso que los defensores y los funcionarios de la ciudad se reunieron con las familias de inmigrantes el 10 de octubre para denunciar los informes de “prácticas engañosas de los oficiales de ICE para detener y deportar a las personas”.Según el concejal de la ciudad Ydanis Rodríguez, uno de los organizadores del mitin, la comunidad pedía la liberación de Fernando Santos-Martínez, secuestrado por agentes de ICE que afirmaban ser agentes de la policía de Nueva York del Precinto 34.Según Rodríguez, ICE se presentó de civil en el apartamento de la familia y repetidamente intentó entrar mientras se identificaba como policía. Sin dejar que la resistencia de la familia los detuviera, los agentes de ICE intentaron intimidar al superintendente del edificio para que consiguiera que la esposa de Santos-Martínez, María, abriera la puerta.Los agentes de ICE dijeron que necesitaban hablar con Santos-Martínez “sobre un incidente anterior”, por lo que el cónyuge “sin saberlo les dio su número de teléfono”, dijo Rodríguez.Según los informes, el alcalde de Nueva York, Bill de Blasio, dijo el viernes que el había “pedido a ICE que ordenara a sus agentes que no declararan o insinuaran que representan a la policía de Nueva York”.Pero tanto la policía de Nueva York como la de ICE son agentes deshonestos que protegen a un estado capitalista. Y harán lo que quieran y pondrán en acción sus creencias supremacistas blancas, no lo que ordene de Blasio. La policía y ICE han demostrado una y otra vez que están políticamente alineados con las viles políticas racistas de la administración Trump. De hecho, la policía de Nueva York, a través de su unidad de propaganda de la “Asociación Benevolente de Policía”, salió en agosto por primera vez en un histórico respaldo a Trump para otro mandato como presidente.Mientras ICE evita que los migrantes obtengan agua en el desierto con tanques blindados, y mientras la policía y el ICE unen fuerzas cada vez más, ya es hora de que el movimiento elimine a la policía y al ICE de una vez por todas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Justin Thomas has moved into the lead of the U.S. Open with three straight birdies while making the turn to drop to 4 under par. Thomas sank a 9-foot putt on No. 11 to pull ahead of amateur Davis Thompson, who had been out to the early lead. The University of Georgia All-American bogeyed No. 13 to fall to minus-3. No amateur has won the U.S. Open since Johnny Goodman in 1933.Thomas’ best finish in the U.S. Open was a tie for ninth in 2017. He won the PGA Championship that year for his only major victory.___Amateur Davis Thompson is leading the U.S. Open through 13 holes. Hitting fairways is paramount at Winged Foot. For starters, it’s tough to advance the ball very far. But the greens are severe, and the bunkers are as much as 8 feet deep. That explains why only two players out of 750 who have started the previous five U.S. Opens at Winged Foot finished under par.Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will get an early start Thursday, though they begin on opposite ends of the West Course. The opening round began with cloud cover. The rest of the week is expected to feature plenty of sunshine and mild weather, unusual for a U.S. Open.Then again, it’s been 113 years since the U.S. Open was played in September. It was moved from its traditional June spot in the calendar when golf shut down for three months in America because of the COVID-19 pandemic.___More AP golf: https://apnews.com/apf-Golf and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Associated Press Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditMAMARONECK, N.Y.

The cheers have come from the smattering of volunteers. And they had reason.Paul Waring holed out for a birdie from the fifth fairway after driving into the rough. Moments later, Patrick Reed made a hole-in-one on the seventh hole.Leading the way is an amateur, Davis Thompson of Georgia. He was at 3 under. Rory McIlroy wanted to get off to a good start for a change, and he was at 2 under.Tiger Woods was 1 over through seven holes.The course is forgiving enough that Jordan Spieth managed to recover from his tough start. With three birdies, he was back to even par. September 17, 2020 Thompson birdied Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 11 to drop to 4-under at Winged Foot. That’s a one-stroke lead over Justin Thomas. Rory McIlroy is among a trio that are two strokes back at minus-2.Thompson was an All-American at Georgia and a finalist for the Jack Nicklaus Award given to the top player in college golf. He qualified as the No. 3 player in the World Amateur Golf Rankings and is making his U.S. Open debut. No amateur has won the tournament since Johnny Goodman in 1933.10:20 a.m.For a U.S. Open course that’s one of the toughest, and with no spectators allowed, there’s been plenty of cheering in the opening round Thursday. ___9 a.m.Jordan Spieth already is facing an uphill battle after only two holes at the U.S. Open.He first made bogey from the fairway when his shot rolled down to the bottom of the green and he three putted. And then it got worse.Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa were waiting on the second tee when Spieth in the group ahead arrived in a golf cart. His tee shot got caught in a tree and he had to return to the tee to play his third. He wound up with a double bogey and was 3 over after two holes. Spieth has not won in three years. He was eliminated after the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. And then he missed the cut last week in the Safeway Open.___7:30 a.m.Brandon Wu kicked off the 120th U.S. Open with a drive into the right side of the fairway at Winged Foot.That’s considered a great start.

But he dropped a stroke on the par-3 13th hole after putting his tee shot in the bunker and then two-putting from 19 feet. Woods was playing with leader Justin Thomas, who also birdied Nos. 9, 10 and 11. Thomas was the leader at minus-4 through 13 holes.The final groups of the morning round have all made the turn, with the second half of the field preparing to tee off just after noon at Winged Foot in Westchester County in New York.___11:20 a.m. The Latest: Tiger moving up (and down) at US Open

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Evra: Man Utd must rediscover arroganceby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Patrice Evra has called for them to get their “arrogance” back. United face West Ham – two of the Frenchman’s former clubs – this weekend.Evra told United’s official website: “West Ham is a good club and I think Manuel Pellegrini is doing a great job.”They will go for it. I remember I was still playing for West Ham and they played against United. “During the week, actually all the players were so focused in training and not one of them was thinking they were going to lose against United.”They were like we are going to beat them and win against United. I was a West Ham player but a United fan and I was a little bit hurt to say: “Wow, my club is getting really down”, if they don’t think even one per cent they are going to lose that game. “The problem is they won that game 3-1, West Ham, so I was happy but really upset. Wow, we need to fix my club and it’s why we are Manchester United.”We played against Leicester and many people said it was going to be a tough game because they’re in form but it’s what I’m talking about. “Where is the respect for Manchester United? I want people to fear us again and people have to go out and play better and win the games.”
