I too am shocked that President Pussy Grabbing Fascist would create fascist policies that facilitate the crimes of domestic abusers and rapists.

Latinos in Los Angeles are making dramatically fewer reports of rape and domestic violence amid a climate of fear over increased immigration enforcement, according to the city’s Police Chief Charlie Beck.

Since the beginning of 2017, reports of rape among the city’s Latino population have declined by 25 percent, compared to the same period last year. Domestic violence reports have dropped nearly 10 percent. According to statistics provided by the Los Angeles Police Department, no other ethnic group experienced a comparable decrease.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Beck said there was a “strong correlation” between the Trump administration’s new immigration rules, which empower federal agents to more aggressively deport those without documentation regardless of whether they’ve committed a serious crime, and the deflated numbers.

“Imagine a young woman—imagine your daughter, sister, mother, your friend—not reporting a sexual assault because they are afraid that their family will be torn apart,” he said during an appearance with Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The Pew Research Center estimates that the Los Angeles metro area has one million undocumented immigrants, more than any other area in the country except New York. In a press release, the LAPD cautioned that while “there is no direct evidence that the decline is related to concerns within the Hispanic community regarding immigration, the department believes deportation fears may be preventing Hispanic members of the community from reporting when they are victimized.”

And hey, when the fascist shock force known as Immigration and Customs Enforcement starts arresting women at their domestic violence hearings, turns out it will stop women from protecting themselves through the legal system. I wonder how many women Trump will kill because of this. A feature, not a bug, no doubt.

    Let’s be perfectly clear: when you hear about “Sanctuary Cities”, this, and more generally than this the ability of immigrants and their associates to seek justice and protection, is what it’s about. If immigrants and their families and friends fear to contact the police, to seek redress, or to testify or appear in court, they become subhuman members of our society and permanent victims, at the mercy of whatever employer, landlord, or criminal decides to abuse them. They’re also more likely to resort to criminal measures in self-defense or seeking revenge. The goal in cracking down on “Sanctuary Cities” is to turn immigrant-rich communities into unlivable hellholes for the entertainment of and to suit the prejudices of Trump’s older suburban and rural white voters.

      This is too coherent by far. The goal in cracking down on sanctuary cities is “this is a thing for those people. We don’t like those people. Let’s take away their thing.” Any actual understanding of what sanctuary cities or why they’re needed is superfluous.

      But still, good explanation of what sanctuary cities or why they’re needed.

      Next stop: black markets, racketeering and bribery, which the blood-libelous DOJ will duitifully report as “immigrant crime.”

  • osceola

    The former police chief here in Austin made a similar point that victims and witnesses to crimes will not come forward because they fear deportation.

    A week or two ago, a woman was detained by ICE when she came to court as a witness in a domestic violence case.

    • Brett

      Same thing happened in Alabama, too. One of the Chief of Police said that after they passed state-level restrictions a few years back, the number of reports on crimes by hispanic folks plummeted (along with their willingness to be witnesses).

      It is truly appalling that protection from ICE retaliation for reporting on these things isn’t enshrined in law. We have whistleblower protections (for what they’re worth), witness protection – but apparently that’s a bridge too far when it comes to immigrants.

      “A week or two ago, a woman was detained by ICE when she came to court as a witness in a domestic violence case.”

      and those are low-hanging fruit. all they need to do is check the court docket every day, and show up with a net.

      • Warren Terra

        In the first of these cases to receive national attention it was very strongly suspected her alleged abuser had called ICE and asked them to pick her up at their court hearing.

    “Imagine a young woman—imagine your daughter, sister, mother, your friend—not reporting a sexual assault because they are afraid that their family will be torn apart,”

    That daughter/sister/mother business is dubious at the best of times, but it’s particularly inappropriate here. If he’s addressing the general population, it’s very unlikely that they have a daughter, sister, or mother who is an illegal immigrant.

      God, you’re a noxious little shit.

    • Hogan

      “Imagine your loved ones being treated the way Trump wants to treat undocumented immigrants.” I don’t see the problem.

      • Gareth

        I guess if your mother’s dead and you only have brothers and sons, you’re off the hook.

        • Hogan

          Or if you completely lack empathy. What’s that like, by the way?

          • cpinva

            empty, very, very empty.

    • Warren Terra

      Contrary to this, many people all over the country will have a family member, friend, neighbour, or even a random passerby who’s undocumented. I don’t know about you, but if I’m walking home one night and get mugged, or sideswiped by a drunk driver, or just twist my ankle, I’d really like it if the next person to find me has no fear of calling the emergency services and waiting with me until they arrive, and then maybe sticking around to give a statement, perhaps testifying if it comes to that. I want the undocumented people I encounter to generally feel safe and not to be helplessly under the thumb of organized crime.

      And as to your notion that normal people in rural Midwestern America never have ties with undocumented people, I encourage you read this story.

      • cpinva

        I would wager cash money that rural, Midwestern America has undocumenteds harvesting their crops, and working in their meat packing plants, just to name two industries they’re commonly employed in.

      Why do I get the sense that in your mind this is actually a good thing because all those countless fake rape charges* will be cut down on.

      *- There aren’t enough scare quotes in the world for me to mark that with sufficient scorn, but just for the sake of abundant clarity I am not an MRA.

      • cpinva

        that was the first thing that crossed my mind, when I read this. also, all those fake domestic abuse charges, alleged by pissed off wives and girlfriends.

        • GeorgeBurnsWasRight

          The first thing that crossed my mind was that lots of Trump supporters would welcome sexual assault no longer being a considered a crime. Trump himself, too.

    • Chetsky

      If he’s addressing the general racist white population, it’s very unlikely that they have a daughter, sister, or mother who is an illegal immigrant.

      There, FTFY.

    • djw

      The particular thought experiment suggested here requires something called “empathy” so it’s no surprising you’d struggle to make sense of it.

  • Simple Mind

    Is Trump is packing on the pounds? He looks 30 lbs heavier.

    • osceola

      Stress eating. He said the first time he met with Obama as President-Elect the job was more complicated than he thought.

      • GeorgeBurnsWasRight

        “Nobody knew that.”
