Today we want to discuss the JEWISH global banking 1% players and those 99% of REAL Jewish citizens HOUSE OF JUDAH meets LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL to which ALICE spent time as she traveled from modern 1800s England back to before the Roman Empire existed------on her way to flipping the Earth's economic axis from Western to Eastern Hemisphere.
Even as SYMBOLS women cannot win as THE DUCHESS is not a woman but DISRAELI treated as our Jewish citizens are in Europe----designating a character for DISRAELI as a woman was a great disrespect as to the story of ALICE at the house of THE DUCHESS.
Alice arrives at the door of this house at the time of serving dinner freshly cooked by THE COOK who is actually a woman. Rather than serving the meal------the cook is throwing both food and all kitchen utensils used to cook it at THE DUCHESS and out the door.
'Benjamin Disraeli was born Jewish and is therefore sometimes considered Britain's first Jewish Prime Minister.
In fact, he was a practicing Anglican. In 1813, his father's quarrel with the synagogue of Bevis Marks led to the decision in 1817 to have his children baptized as Christians (ironically, when Disraeli was 13 and eligible for Bar Mitzvah). Until 1858 Jews were excluded from Parliament; except for the father's decision Disraeli's political career could never have taken the form it did.
Benjamin Disraeli, was born in London on 21st December, 1804. His father, Isaac Disraeli, was the author of several books on literature and history, including The Life and Reign of Charles I (1828). After a private education Disraeli was trained as a solicitor'.
Alice in Wonderland (1949)-Duchess' Lament
Duchess: Speak roughly to your little boy And beat him when he…
The throwing of food and kitchen utensils rather than serving dinner simply represents THE COOK's disdain at an UNKOSHER KITCHEN working for a Jewish global banking 1% pretending to be CHRISTIAN. THE DUCHESS holding a child which she hates turns to a PIG as a symbol of that which JEWISH HATE as food----Pork.
What is important to MOVING FORWARD back to DARK AGES is the location of CHESHIRE CAT at THE DUCHESS' house---remember, that CHESHIRE SMILE from Western Hemisphere to Eastern Hemisphere stops at KINGDOM OF KIEVAN RUSSIA where those global 1% of HOUSE OF JUDAH plan to meet those global 1% ROMAN OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS one the FLIPPING has occurred.
The Duchess“If everybody minded their own business,” the Duchess said in a hoarse growl, “the world would go round a deal faster than it does.”
The Duchess does not appear in Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures Underground. The White Rabbit does make reference to meeting the “Marchioness” in chapter two, but she never appears. In Wonderland “marchioness” is changed to “Duchess” and the episodes featuring the Duchess in the kitchen (Chapter 6) and on the croquet ground (Chapter 9) are also added. The Duchess is one of the most unreasonable and violent characters in the book, perhaps second only to the Queen of Hearts herself. She also is incredibly didactic, insisting in Chapter 9, that “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.” Elsie Leach, in her article “Alice in Wonderland in Perspective” (1964), argues that the Duchess character serves as Carroll’s critical commentary on the Victorian system of education.
“In her own kitchen [the Duchess] indulges in baby-beating and brutal candor…[but] at the croquet ground she is all sweetness, though not necessarily a bearer of light…In this episode, the Duchess’ motto is ‘Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it,’ and she becomes more and more extravagant and nonsensical in her application of axioms to everything Alice says and does. When Dodgson makes a ridiculous character like the Duchess praise and practice moralizing in this manner, he clearly indicates his attitude toward didactism directed against children.” (91-92)
It is also not wildly out of the interpretive imagination to consider the Duchess as an example of Carroll’s political and social criticism of life in the Victorian era. Carroll lived during a era of social and political upheaval in England as the middle class began to rise and balk against the privileges of the upper class. The satirical portrayal of aristocratic characters such as the Queen and the Duchess seem to show Carroll on the side of the common man.
The Duchess (and the rest of the kitchen crew) is a very popular subject for illustration. Tenniel’s is probably still the most famous, and in many of the film versions the Duchess wears an enormous head-dress as a nod to Tenniel’s drawing. Martin Gardner points out in his Annotated Alice, that “A glance at the portrait of the Ugly Duchess, by the sixteenth-century Flemish painter Quintin Matsys leaves little doubt that it served as the model for Tenniel’s Duchess” (82). (See fun fact!) Ralph Steadman also explained his idea of the Duchess in the preface to his Alice: “The Duchess is an ex-starlet who married the aristocrat. A high-class tart gone to seed. Her tiny mind has developed a home-spun philosophy within a cultured environment in an effort to keep up appearances” (TextBookRUs.com). Click on one of the illustrators in the right hand column to see how the image of the Duchess has changed over time. Note that many illustrators are heavily influenced in this case by Tenniel's drawing.
The episode in the Duchess’ kitchen, though very popular amongst illustrators, is one of the hardest scenes to portray well on film. Somehow the scene is amusing and ridiculous when read, but the effect of seeing this scene played out, with the Duchess abusing her baby while the cook throws pots and pans, is really quite disturbing. The most interesting film version of this scene, in my opinion, is Jonathan Miller’s 1966 version, where the Duhcess is actually played by a male actor Leo McKern. I also think that the Pig and Pepper scene from the 1986 musical Alice at the Palace, is notable for manging to convey the chaos and energy of the encounter.
THE DORMOUSE is DAS MAUS-------the symbol for those 99% of REAL Jewish LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL. This is why we see him sitting between HATTER AND MARCH HARE and why we see him washed away in ALICE'S tears having caused a flood---symbolizing the movement through time of our 99% of Jewish citizens as global traders living as EX-PATS.
THE CAUCUS RACE was led by DORMOUSE not DODO because DODO as OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS from Western Europe are dying out and DORMOUSE as a great global trader leads the race to ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE transitions just for the sake of transitions.
Maus - Wikipedia
Maus is a graphic novel by American cartoonist Art Spiegelman, serialized from 1980 to 1991. It depicts Spiegelman interviewing his father about his experiences as a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. The work employs postmodernist techniques and represents Jews as mice, Germans as cats, and Poles as pigs.
The dormouse sitting between a HATTER AND MARCH HARE is given a dormant role because the 99% of Jewish citizens have no power --they act as a foundation for an economy where HATTER AND MARE HARE are bigger players.
The reason all this is important is to understand the story of ALICE tracking it from PRESENT back to MIDDLE KINGDOM with goals of EASTERN HEMISPHERE 3000BC Hindi/Buddhist economic and societal structure. THE BLUE CATERPILLER meets THE CHESHIRE CAT both symbols of Eastern economy one HOUSE OF JUDAH----BLUE CATERPILLER representing OLD WORLD ROMAN KINGS AND QUEENS replaced by EASTERN OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS.
The reference to BAT VS CAT by Alice in her talks with BLUE CATERPILLER and CHESHIRE CAT of course represent ROMAN OLD WORLD KINGS connection to LIONS/PANTHERS et all as gods and goddesses-------while EASTERN OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS connect to BATS-----ergo, BATMAN.
Baby boomers attending real PUBLIC K-UNIVERSITY were taught all this because public schools educate students to be CITIZENS holding power accountable---if you haven't known all this you attended a global banking 1% corporate/freemason school.
'To dream of a bat means that you should let go of old habits, evaluate facts more closely in a given situation so you don’t go “batty” or “crazy.”'
Bat Dream Interpretation and Meaning
The bat as a symbol has been associated with words like rebirth, intuition, communication, inner depth, initiation, and illusion. For most people, bats have a negative connotation – mostly learned from vampire movies – so a dream of a bat tends to inspire feelings of fear.
Native Americans, however, view the bat as an interconnected part of all creation, and the symbols attached to it typically involve intuition and vision. These associations are based on the fact that bats are very sensitive to their surroundings in nature. Native Americans might invoke a bat spirit if they needed special energy, such as the ability to “see” clearly and identify illusions or ambiguity in a matter, going straight for its core truth.
CATS CAN EAT BATS BUT CAN BATS EAT CATS asks Alice
Bats symbolize rebirth because they live in cave-like environments and come out in the evening, effectively being “reborn” every night from within Mother Earth. Native Americans considered the bat to be a symbol of communication because bats have strong family ties and are extremely nurturing and social creatures. They are very sensitive to the other members of their group and constantly communicate with them. A dream of a bat suggests issues associated with free will and freedom as well, since bats can fly!
The dream bat indicates that you are very aware of the things that surround you in your environment and that you may be overly sensitive to the feelings of other people in your life. It also suggests that you are blessed with psychic perceptions and may have prophetic dreams. A bat’s appearance in your dream means you should make a greater effort at self-improvement and work on your spiritual and psychic education, perhaps confronting things that might be “scary” for you. If you follow the dream bat’s suggestion, you’ll be on your way toward your highest potential.
On the negative side, a bat dream is symbolic of the darker side of your personality. It may mean that you are relying on your intuition more than your logic – that you might be “blind” to certain things. To dream of a bat means that you should let go of old habits, evaluate facts more closely in a given situation so you don’t go “batty” or “crazy.” In some cultures, a dream of a white bat means the death of a family member, while dreaming of a black bat indicates you will face some personal catastrophe. And dreaming of a vampire bat indicates that you are being “drained” of your self-confidence or resources. If you see several bats in your dream, it could mean that you are worrying about your debts.
Alice in Wonderland mentions two pets throughout the story ---one is a CAT named DINAH and one is a friend's DOG named FURY.
DINAH has many associations----WOMEN SLAVES were called DINAH but as important in this story of killing WESTERN CIVILIZATION is Alice is bringing us back to that 1000BC ancient KINGDOM OF ISRAEL where DINAH WOULD YOU BLOW YOUR HORN symbolizes the bringing down of walls of JERICHO making way for KINGDOM OF ISRAEL. KING SOLOMON at that time was the FAIR JUDGE.
When ALICE mentions her cat DINAH to the dormouse----to the PIGEON ----she is bringing back memories of Jewish SLAVERY---but the global slave trade of SILK AND SPICE ROUTE 1000BC as medieval colonial America slave trade.
Again, every mention of a woman's name is STILL STEEPED in negative connotation.
ALICE WITH HER CAT DINAH TAKING WESTERN CIVILIZATION BACK TO WALLS OF JERICHO 3000BC----1000BC
For our new 99% of immigrant citizens being brought to US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES----it means MOVING FORWARD is bringing SLAVERY back to America as America is taken back to a colonial status.
The fear shown by the cast of characters to ALICE mentioning of her CAT DINAH has everyone remembering the OLD WORLD SLAVE TRADE of thousands of years past----of several centuries passed.
All this imagery of slavery has ALICE relating that history to our modern European and American colonial period but that imagery goes back to MOSES leading Jews from Egypt to build KINGDOM OF ISRAEL. This is the motive for all talk today about returning LOST TRIBES back to ancient KINGDOM OF ISRAEL.
Without coincidence all these images of slavery are tied to today's national media and its FALSE FLAG over the immigrant children being staged to bring global slave trade of children to US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES.
What should we learn from the walls of Jericho falling down?
Question: "What should we learn from the walls of Jericho falling down?"
Answer: The story of the walls of Jericho falling down, recorded in Joshua 6:1–27, is one that vividly demonstrates the miraculous power of God. But more than that, the utter destruction of Jericho teaches us several grand truths regarding God’s grace and our salvation.
The people of Israel had just crossed over the Jordan River into the land of Canaan (Joshua 3:14–17). This was the land of milk and honey God had promised to Abraham over 500 years earlier (Deuteronomy 6:3, 32:49). After spending forty difficult years wandering in the desert of Sinai, the people of Israel were now on the eastern banks of the Jordan. Their challenge: take the land of Canaan, the Promised Land. However, their first obstacle was the city of Jericho (Joshua 6:1), an unconquerable, walled city. Excavations there reveal that its fortifications featured a stone wall 11 feet high and 14 feet wide. At its top was a smooth stone slope, angling upward at 35 degrees for 35 feet, where it joined massive stone walls that towered even higher. It was virtually impregnable.
In ancient warfare such cities were either taken by assault or surrounded and the people starved into submission. Its invaders might try to weaken the stone walls with fire or by tunneling, or they might simply heap up a mountain of earth to serve as a ramp. Each of these methods of assault took weeks or months, and the attacking force usually suffered heavy losses. However, the strategy to conquer the city of Jericho was unique in two ways. First, the strategy was laid out by God Himself, and, second, the strategy was a seemingly foolish plan. God simply told Joshua to have the people to march silently around Jericho for six days, and then, after seven circuits on the seventh day, to shout.
Though it seemed foolish, Joshua followed God’s instructions to the letter. When the people did finally shout, the massive walls collapsed instantly, and Israel won an easy victory. In fact, God had given the city of Jericho to them before they even began to march around its walls (Joshua 6:2, 16). It was when the people of God, by faith, followed the commands of God that the walls of Jericho fell down (Joshua 6:20).
We discuss often the symbolism of PANDORA'S BOX FURIES------these are the goddesses who come to revenge MOTHERS KILLED BY SONS OR DAUGHTERS......that ancient world deadly sins of children killing their parents. Remember AGAMEMNON son kills his MOTHER who killed his FATHER-------and the FURIES chased the son with the goal of REVENGE killing. THE FURIES agreed not to kill the son because ATHENA granted THE FURIES a higher position among GODS AND GODDESSES-----they went from PANDORA'S release of all evil----to being protectors of women and families/home
This discussion with FURY and a MOUSE brings us back to the FURIES thinking to be JUDGE AND EXECUTIONER-----that brings us again to 3000BC gods and goddesses. The JURY were the 99% of people who say maybe we will take that KING WANTING TO BE JUDGE out instead. Before AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT and MAGNA CARTA the global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS acted as judge and executioner.
This issue of European history BEFORE MAGNA CARTA vs after the KING became accountable to law operated in civil courts by our 99% of WE THE PEOPLE in ALICE IN WONDERLAND shows the backward movement away from COMMON LAW AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT back to medieval KINGS AND QUEENS.
THE KING OF HEARTS representing KING SOLOMON HOUSE OF JUDAH-----rendering justice for those OFF WITH THE HEAD QUEEN OF HEARTS victims. THE QUEEN OF HEARTS wanting to behead everyone is a reversal of French revolution where KINGS AND QUEENS had their heads in guillotine. Remember, in WONDERLAND all is backwards and upside down.
All this is important because it references the dismantling of our WESTERN AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT justice and judicial system. This is why our 99% of I AM MAN are no WINNERS in our 99% of women being taken back to DARK AGES. Whether it is OLD WORLD KINGS---or THE PANDORA FURIES ruling over justice----our 99% of US WE THE PEOPLE and our 99% of new immigrant citizens are losers.
Fury said to
a mouse, That
‘You are not at
TWIDDLE DEE AND TWIDDLE DOM in Alice in Wonderland are indeed HUMPTY DUMPTY falling of a wall with all kings horses and men not putting those cracked eggs together again.
What is ALICE inside the secret garden of QUEEN OF HEARTS telling us when she witnessed this fall of two eggs from the wall?
Just as the theme throughout ALICE IN WONDERLAND THROUGH LOOKING GLASS has images of OLD WORLD ROMAN KINGS AND QUEENS disappearing ----the two eggs are of course ROME'S founders Romulus and Remus----and that wall is the first building of ROME. The fall of those eggs cracking beyond repair-----is the killing of ROMAN EMPIRE OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS.
If we look at the drawings associated with this FATHER WILLIAM verse----we see four frames of OLD WILLIAM FLIPPING IN SOMERSAULT with the last frame changing from OLD WILLIAM to BLUE CATERPILLER.
Throughout ALICE the movement of today's Western civilized nations Europe, US, Canada=====LATIN AMERICA-----Africa, near and middle East are disappearing. FATHER WILLIAM is of course WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR first Roman Empire OLD WORLD KING of England.
ALICE as Western Roman Empire of KINGS AND QUEENS repeating to the Eastern OLD WORLD KING BLUE CATERPILLER how getting old is no problem if you REINVENT yourself.
Remember, Eastern Europe never had an AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT---no MAGNA CARTA ----so waxing romantic over a Eastern Europe as being WHITE or Caucasian for our 99% of US white citizens men or women is a BAD MOON RISING.
you are old, Father William,
‘ said the Caterpillar.
Alice folded her hands, and began:--
‘You are old, Father William,’ the young man said,
‘And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head--
Do you think, at your age, it is right?’
‘In my youth,’ Father William replied to his son,
‘I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I’m perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again.’
‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘as I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door--
Pray, what is the reason of that?’
‘In my youth,’ said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
‘I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment--one shilling the box--
Allow me to sell you a couple?’
‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak--
Pray how did you manage to do it?’
‘In my youth,’ said his father, ‘I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life.’
‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose--
What made you so awfully clever?’
‘I have answered three questions, and that is enough,’
Said his father; `don’t give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I’ ll kick you down stairs!’

Spielberg pulls rabbit out of hat with Harvey remake
The 1950 original film had James Stewart as an amiable eccentric whose imaginary best friend is a 6ft-plus rabbit
Steven Spielberg's next project will be a remake of Harvey, the Oscar-winning 1950 film which starred James Stewart as a man whose best friend is an invisible giant rabbit. The original movie, an adaptation of the Pulitzer prize-winning play by Mary Chase, won Josephine Hull the Academy Award for best supporting actress for her performance as Stewart's long-suffering sister, Veta, while Stewart was himself nominated for the best actor prize.
The story centres on Elwood P Dowd (Stewart), a middle-aged, amiable eccentric whose friendship with an imaginary 6ft 3½in tall rabbit named Harvey results in a comedy of errors when his sister tries to have him committed. This is not the first time that a remake of Harvey has been mooted: John Travolta was attached to an update at one point, but the rights lapsed.
According to Variety, Spielberg aims to start shooting early next year, and is expected to approach A-list actors such as Tom Hanks and Will Smith for the film. The new screenplay is the first from novelist Jonathan Tropper, writer of The Book of Joe and How to Talk to a Widower.
Spielberg has not exactly been sitting on his hands – his collaboration with Peter Jackson, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, is deep in post-production and due to hit cinemas in 2011, and his Will Smith-starring remake of Old Boy is moving ahead despite a legal wrangle. He also has his long-gestating Abraham Lincoln biopic and children's adventure The 39 Clues on his potential slate, although neither has yet been given the final green light.
Variety reports that Harvey will be a co-production of Twentieth Century Fox and Spielberg's DreamWorks company, the first since the latter split with Universal last year. DreamWorks has since teamed up with India's Reliance ADA Group and arranged a new distribution deal with Disney in February after negotiations with Universal fell through just days earlier.
RACE TO TOP was always a policy of bringing our US education system in line with those overseas in Asia. Global corporations have been bringing in billions in profits in moving children from one nation to another to work in these global factories. The entire system of transporting, settling children into institutional setting as in CA today has operated these few decades. What is happening in CA is all that structure moving child labor overseas is being installed in the US all while pretending it is simply TRUMP being crazy. CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA built these structures overseas---they all know that is what is MOVING FORWARD in CA ----CA is just the start of being a GATEWAY for child enslavement.

Citing family separation policy, Maryland Gov. Hogan calls back National Guard unit from border
Erin Cox and Michael DresserContact Reporter
The Baltimore Sun
Republican Gov. Larry Hogan recalled a small unit of Maryland National Guard soldiers helping to patrol the southern U.S. border on Tuesday amid a national outcry about separating migrant children from their families.
Hogan joined a bipartisan wave of governors across the country revoking resources along the Mexican border in protest of an immigration policy widely condemned by both sides of the aisle.
In Maryland a chorus of Democrats running for governor and other state leaders — from U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings to Catholic Archbishop William E. Lori — demanded President Donald J. Trump and Congress end a “zero tolerance” policy that has separated nearly 2,000 children from their parents in recent weeks.
Hogan announced in a tweet that he would rescind all resources until Trump’s administration reversed the policy.
“Immigration enforcement efforts should focus on criminals, not separating innocent children from their families,” the governor tweeted. He said that early Tuesday he ordered the four Maryland National Guard crew members and their helicopter to return from their station in New Mexico.
The Maryland guard members were sent to the border early this month, according to Hogan administration officials.
Hogan’s Democratic rivals had been pressuring the governor to take action over the border crisis, as other governors from both parties have.
The Trump administration recently began enforcing a “zero-tolerance” policy that criminally prosecutes anyone trying to cross the border illegally, including parents traveling with children. Adults are sent to the U.S. Marshals Service for criminal proceedings while many children are sent to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services. Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May.
Pulitzer Prize-winning Getty Images photographer John Moore has been documenting migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. One of his photos of a 2-year-old child crying helplessly as she looks up at her mother, has gone viral.
Audio of crying children and images of them — including those being kept in a converted Walmart near the Texas border — has sparked outrage across the country.
U.S. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger met on Tuesday with two Honduran men at a Glen Burnie facility who had been separated from their children.
The men were apprehended in the Southwest and sent to the Ordinance Road Correctional Center because resources near the border were scarce, said Jaime Lennon, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Democrat. She said one man had a 5-year-old son, the other a 7-year-old daughter.
“When they started talking about their kids, it was emotional. They were crying,” Ruppersberger said. “As a grandfather and as a father, we can’t allow this to continue to happen. If you want to send them back, fine. But don’t separate them from their children.”
On Monday, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts announced that he would not send promised resources to the border and Gov. John Hickenlooper of Denver, a Democrat, signed an executive order barring any state resources from helping to enforce the policy. On Tuesday, Democratic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo said she would refuse any Trump administration requests for National Guard help on the border. A few hours after Hogan’s announcement, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, withdrew his state’s National Guard helicopter and crew from the border.
A CNN poll released Monday found two-thirds of Americans object to the practice of separating children from their families and housing them in government facilities. All living former first ladies have publicly decried the practice.
In the hours leading up to Hogan’s tweet, several of the six Maryland Democrats vying for their party’s nomination to be governor called on him to withdraw the guard.
State Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr. held a news conference to protest what he called a “torturous, monstrous policy.” Former NAACP chief Ben Jealous released a statement to Hogan saying “as governor, your job is to stand firm for our values and have the courage to move Maryland forward no matter what happens in Washington.” Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III issued a statement calling the policy “inhumane, immoral and repugnant.”
In Washington, Trump was scheduled to meet Tuesday afternoon with House Republicans to discuss immigration legislation. In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the president again blamed Democrats for the crisis, saying they had a lax approach to the immigration enforcement.
“Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration,” Trump said.
Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, departed from his prepared remarks at a hearing to condemn Trump’s policies and urge his Republican colleagues to stand up to the president on the family separation issue.
“We should all be able to agree that we will not keep kids in child internment camps — indefinitely and hidden away from public view. What country is that?” the Baltimore Democrat said.
Mayor Catherine E. Pugh released a statement calling the separation of parents and children “a nightmare for them and for those of us who know in our hearts that this is not what America is about.”
Archbishop Lori of Baltimore issued a statement saying “there can be no reasonable justification” for separating children from their parents to enforce the law.
BALTIMORE HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST IN NATION SEPARATION OF CHILDREN FROM PARENTS.
“This action threatens the stability of families, unduly inflicts trauma and hardship on those involved, including innocent children, and runs counter to the compassion and justice that are foundational to our American society,” Lori said.
Madaleno held his news conference outside the Howard County Detention Center in Jessup, which he identified as one of three sites in Maryland used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to detain immigrants. The others are in Frederick and Worcester counties, he said.
Accompanied by four Democratic state delegates and state Sen. Susan C. Lee, Madaleno urged Howard and the other counties to “stop taking the blood money from ICE in order to do this.”
Jack Kavanagh, director of corrections for Howard County, said the center’s agreement with federal immigration authorities goes back as far as the 1990s. He said the county is paid $90 a day per person to house detained adult male immigrants.
Kavanagh said the center does not hold men who are picked up for immigration violations. He said the 60 to 100 immigrants held there for an average stay are typically people who have been released from prison after serving their sentences and who are awaiting deportation.
“These are not choir boys,” he said. “These are dangerous people.”
The Maryland National Guard has helped patrol the southern border on several occasions under both Hogan and his Democratic predecessor, Martin O’Malley. According to Hogan’s office, the Maryland guard has been participating in such operations since as far back as 2000.
