The Immigrant Hunters

So the Department of Homeland Security is trying out a new method of tracking immigrants: ankle bracelets. You know, the electronic monitors that parolee sex offenders are often required to wear? Yeah, I know this sounds like a story from the Onion, but it’s not.

Francesca of Francesca’s Liberal Wingnut Corner, who, like me, is married to an immigrant, has the scoop, including her husband’s reaction. Mr. Shakes is too disgusted to even acknowledge it, I think. I’m just afraid they’re going to snatch him, tag him, and release him back into the wild too far from home, and he won’t be able to find his way back.

Go read Francesca’s post; it’s just unbelievable what’s going on in this country.
