Needless to say, this cretin should be removed from office forthwith. Even more pathetic than her attempt at obstructing justice is she was spreading a false rumor. But this is how the left rolls today.
A Brockton lawmaker is defending a controversial Facebook post in which she warned of impending federal immigration raids in the city, saying she was “just forwarding a rumor” that was already widespread.
State Rep. Michelle DuBois said it was unclear if there were even “raids” by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the city, despite her warning of one today and tomorrow, but claimed there have already been “many” in and around Brockton.
“If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street. If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door. I ask you to be careful,” DuBois wrote in the post, relaying a message she said got from “my friend in the Latin community.”
The post drew hundreds of comments, many critical, which DuBois called “unintended controversy” in a statement this afternoon to the Herald.
It also was already drawing heat elsewhere: Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who’s long advocated for stricter immigration laws and spoken out against so-called “sanctuary cities,” was addressing a House subcommittee in Washington, D.C., when he pointed to DuBois’ post.
“It completely undermines law enforcement,” Hodgson said, according to his office’s official Twitter account.
Despite the growing fervor, it was unclear if federal authorities had even launched, or planned to launch, any raids in Brockton. An ICE spokesman was not immediately available, and Brockton Police Chief John Crowley did not return a message for comment. Other elected officials in the city also didn’t immediately respond to messages.
DuBois, in a statement, stood by the post.
“Passing information along that is already all over the community not only lets the people I represent know what is happening, it lets ICE know that everyone in Brockton is aware of ICE’s planned raid (if there was one),” she said in a text to a Herald reporter.
She stood by the post until she deleted it and scrubbed her Facebook page, that is.
17 hours and 20 minutes. That’s how long it took for State Rep Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton) to finally realize it was time to delete her post that warned illegals that ICE had a scheduled raid in Brockton.
See for yourself:
In fact, she has scrubbed her entire Facebook account. No visible threads. No visible photos. Nothing other than her latest cover photo.
Is she so dumb she thinks nobody grabbed screen shots? Apparently so. Her Twitter page still exists in case you’d like to say hello.
Hodgson, for his part, isn’t pulling any punches.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.”
“If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law and if we never formed or turned a blind eye toward sanctuary cities.”
The left thinks they can act lawlessly. That’s stop once they start doing jail time.
