As news broke of potential nationwide Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids this weekend, Rep. Salud Carbajal encouraged his constituents and people across the nation to know their rights at a press conference today.

“What I will tell my community, my district and communities across the country is: Know your rights. Conozcan sus derechos,” Said Rep. Carbajal. “No tienen que abrir la puerta sin [una] orden judicial. No tienen que firmar ningún documento. Tienen el derecho de estar en silencio y hablar con un abogado. Acuérdense que tienen derechos, y este es tiempo de que cuiden a sus familias y que tengan un plan.”

[Translation: “You don’t have to open the door without a warrant. You don’t have to sign any document. You have the right to remain silent and speak with a lawyer. Remember that you have rights, and now is the time to take care of your families and have a plan.”]


Rep. Salud Carbajal represents California’s 24th congressional district, encompassing Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and part of Ventura County.

Many immigrants here escaped socialist and communist regimes yet these Progressives want to institute socialism, total slap in the face to these people who they claim to care about. Progressive ideas are a cancer to this country. The democrat party better rein in this rogue faction that grew of of hate for this country.

PITMIX I know about Italy and other countries you know why? My family came here (illegally at first, but they immediately did what they had to in order to become legal citizens) from there to escape Socialism. The other half of my family came here as refugees from Communism. Maybe you'd like to speak to them about it? There is nothing wrong with shared services for mail, education, police and fire - it benefits us (although you still have these services provided privately too if you wish). Total government control of the means and methods of production - including healthcare - is what is being pushed by these so called Progressives. I don't even know why they are called Progressives. Going back to the hell of socialism, and communism, is actually regressive. This country was founded on free enterprise, and freedom period. You get what you give - work hard, you'll be rewarded. That is what this country was built on and why so many come here for the American Dream. Those who cannot succeed hate it and all it stands for and now want to destroy it, and have the government run and control everything. They won't be able to b/c more and more are waking up.

Totalitarian dictatorships don't count. What didn't you understand about that statement? Don't know about Italy but parts of it seem to have always been poor and have lots of emigration. If you were being honest you would have to admit that people have always understood that you could never have a purely capitalistic system and that you would always have to have social systems in place to address its excesses. Thus we have social security and medicare and unemployment insurance and so on. But I suppose you would eliminate all of those programs, right? What a fun world that would be.

PITMIX have you studied history? People fled socialist Italy, the former Yugoslavia (communism), Nazi countries (fascists and socialists) to come here, away from socialist regimes. Venezuela is also socialist and does qualify. And yet you want to slap these people in the face for their struggles and institute socialism here now? The very thing they escaped? What do you not understand about that?

Name one socialist or communist regime that is currently sending us refugees. Totalitarian dictatorships like Venezuela and Cuba do not qualify.. I bet there are very few refugees from the socialist democratic countries of northern Europe because they have it pretty good in those countries. Why would they come here?

I am also a legal voter and he IS representing me and others who agree with me. That little old lady was not harming anybody and was just living her last days out with her loved ones as we all, as humans, deserve. Our country has much more important and humane things to do with our tax dollars than chase down little old ladies in the comfort of their families homes, and put them in horrific detention camps or send them somewhere where they don't have a home. If she goes to detention, do you realize that we are shelling out $750 a day to enrich the private concentration camps?! Where is that money going? - because not even $5 a day is going to feed those poor souls. It's going straight to the pockets of Republican donors and stock holders, that's where!!!

Ceasar Chavez was TOTALLY AGAINST ILLEGALS coming to work the fields... The Media and Progressives never want to admit truth, but that is the truth and a fact- The illegals working the fields broke the Farmer Workers Union and "Farmers Inc" have encouraged illegal workers....

Progressives are American Citizens too. Look at all the horrible things trump is doing out of absolute spite to American Citizens, including increasing oil drilling in our beautiful waters and forests. Take the log out of your own eye before you complain about the speck in another's.

LOL at these virtue signalers who are so concerned about rotted produce in fields, yet turn a blind eye to what amounts to modern day legal slavery of people who are disenfranchised with little recourse/rights to demand more. The truth of it is people want these folks for cheap labor to clean their homes and such and you're worried about rotted produce!? Are you kidding me! That is what is driving the misinformation campaign in reality. If they truly cared about these people they would help them become legal. Who do you think is promoting this illegal activity = the slave masters and YOU support that. Sad.

They are NOT just going after ones who have committed crimes. It's anyone they can get their hands on. There have been more immigrants leaving our country in recent years than ones coming in. In Santa Maria farmers have had to plow under some of their crops because there aren't enough workers to pick the produce. Some people like the battle cry, "They take jobs from Americans." How many parents have raised their kids hoping they will work in the farming community? No one I ever met. Time was when teenagers would get jobs on farms in the summer but not these days.

LOL at your claim of Virtue Signaling. You’re so stupid that you literally don’t understand the jargon that you’re using. They are in fact casting a wide net to pick up anyone here illegally and we do not in fact have enough agricultural workers here—google it, over 10m in produce rotted in the fields last year because of a lack of labor, you ignorant fool.

Aside from the illegal immigrant issue: How is it that someone serving our country in the military doesn't have some sort of expedited way to have immediate family live here at least while they are on active duty in the military? That would be fair given a family member is risking life & limb. As a sop for the build-the-wall contingent, the family's future status, could be made dependent on anything from learning the language to being gainfully employed and thus further buying into the system.

What I've heard on the radio and read in newspapers is they are able to apprehend any others caught while apprehending law-breakers whose crime may be an old record driving without a license 30 years ago. Obviously this is hear-say. Can anyone with <inside> information verify?
