Massachusetts state Rep. Michelle DuBois has tipped off illegal aliens about upcoming ICE raids. She said that she felt justified in doing this. I wonder if she has ever heard of Obstruction of Justice. She said that because it’s on her personal Twitter page, she can post anything she wants to. She left out an important part of that. She can make any LEGAL post she wants.
She deleted all of the comments on her Twitter postings because she didn’t like what the said. That part is legal. But she also offered advice on dealing with ICE, including not to open your door. That’s ok because ICE will do it for you. Although you don’t necessarily have to open your door for a random check, ICE is not conducting any of those. They are picking up illegal aliens with outstanding warrants. They will kick your door in to get to you.
Here are some of her postings:
DuBois issued the following statement:
DuBois did supply TheDC with a lengthy statement via email:
“It is obvious that my Facebook post touched off a lot of unintended controversy.
I am an elected State Representative and the response to one facebook post has caused people from across the Nation to inundate my facebook page with some pretty ugly and threatening posts. If this is what happens to an elected representative – what must be happening to immigrants every day in our Nation, both documented and not documented.
I posted on my personal and public facebook page about a rumor about an ICE raid happening on two future dates. I had heard this rumor from several immigrants in the community.
There are many people in Brockton (documented and not) as well as people across this Nation who are terrified. This rumor of an ICE raid in Brockton was wide-spread in Brockton. There have been many ICE raids in the City.
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).
Having ICE know that this rumor is wide-spread in Brockton allows them to change the date if they feel the public’s knowledge of the raid would undermine their planned raid. So I do not agree with Sheriff Hodgson on his point that he made before a federal panel in WashingtonDC that my public facebook post in anyway undermines law enforcement.”
