Thursday 2/15: A transgendered immigrant woman gets a protection order at family court in Austin against her abusive partner. Federal ICE follows her through the courthouse and arrests her when she steps aside; presumably to be held and deported.
This is the kind of bullshit, abuse of power against the weakest in our society (immigrant, abused, transgendered) that just causes the powerless to create a culture of hiding and not talking to police or government officials. It sews chaos and a criminal underground in the long term. Fucking stupid!
