USF Professor and Director of Immigration Bill Ong Hing on ICE's endorsement of Trump for President

USF Professor and Director of Immigration Bill Ong Hing on ICE's endorsement of Trump for President | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"The union that represents immigration officers revealed its true colors this week by endorsing the presidential candidate who has built his campaign on demonizing Mexican immigrants.

“I was just endorsed by ICE. They’ve never endorsed anybody before on immigration,” Donald Trump boasted during Monday night’s presidential debate."

“This is totally inappropriate for them to be acting in the political domain because they are government employees” said Bill Ong Hing, a professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law. “It signifies bias against groups like Mexicans, who are the most significant number of undocumented immigrants.”

Hing said the endorsement could even lead to legal accusations of racial profiling. And that’s not insignificant considering that Mexican nationals topped the list of 235,000 immigrants that ICE deported last year, according to ICE data."

“The networks actually do this quarantine room because they do not want this info to leak out,” said Ken Goldstein, a professor of politics at the University of San Francisco and a member of ABC’s decision desk. “That’s to their credit.”
