ACLU-WV hiring an Immigrantsí Rights Campaign Coordinator, following raids

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK)- Last week ICE raids were carried out in West Virginia, now the ACLU-WV is looking to hire a full-time candidate who can help the immigrant community.

“This is something that’s going on frequently here in West Virginia,” said Billy Wolfe, Communications and Development Director for ACLU-WV.

According to ACLU-WV undocumented immigrants are 7.7 times more likely to be arrested by ICE in West Virginia than in the nation at large. That is why Wolfe from ACLU-WV says West Virginia needs someone committed to teaching the immigrant community about their rights. Over the weekend ACLU-WV held their first Facebook Fundraiser, all to raise money for a full-time Immigrants’ Rights Campaign Coordinator

“Someone who is organizing within our immigrant community, helping them understand that they do in fact have rights,” said Wolfe.

Over 400 people donated over 15,000 dollars in just a few days to make the position a reality but not everyone disagrees with the raids happening in West Virginia.

“ICE has been doing their job keeping us safe, keeping the illegals out,” said Phillip Skeens, a Milton resident.

If so, good on WV. It’s a poor state that was decimated by Obama’s attack on coal. They need protection from the illegal filth, not the other way around.

If they aren’t here legally, they are NOT immigrants.

ACLU is barking up the wrong tree in states like West Virginia.

helping them understand that they do in fact have rights,” said Wolfe.

No they don’t have RIGHTS.

And I’m sure most of them aren’t “Filth” either.

Gotta wonder more about a person that says that.

An illegal that commits ANOTHER crime like assault or rape or murder is filth

Children aren’t “filth”

Illegals who are stealing jobs, housing, and social services from real Americans have the right to a free trip back to their real homes. What other rights do these criminals need?

The ACLU has always been a Communist front group working to do damage to this country. The key is that no taxpayer money goes toward this project.

One of my favorite actors as a kid was Orson Bean. I was disappointed when, as an adult, I discovered that he not only had ties to the communist party, but his dad was a founding member of the ACLU. That was like, finding out the Easter Bunny killed kittens as a sacrifice to Esthera.

I'll do it for half what the other guy is charging. ILLEGAL aliens have no rights.

Now, where do I send the bill?

.

"..ACLU is barking up the wrong tree in states like West Virginia.."

Somebody remind me about WV's dim'o'crat voting history? d;^)

Immigrants are legal permanent residents and have always been welcome in the USA.

Illegal aliens are forbidden to come into the USA,

It is really so simple!

I would think 7.7 is low

ICE doesn’t arrest anyone that is not an illegal immigrent

wow!

how in the world is this helping rank and file members?

It’s not. the ACLU helping illegal immigrants is like the farmer helping the foxes to raid the hen house.

And I would think this would go over like a lead balloon with the membership ...

Of course, the so-called ACLU calls them “immigrants,” NOT illegal aliens.

So let the illegals leave WV. Can’t they go to some sanctuary state like California?

If it’s true, then the WV branch of ICE is doing a good job.

WV voted for Bush the Second, twice.

Voted for nccain/PALIN.

Voted for Romney (Gaaak)

Voted for Trump. Only Wyoming voted for Trump by a greater margin than WV. NO WV County voted for Hildebeeste.

What State are you from, CopperTop?
