Another Trump Murder: Greek Born 41 Year old Who Came to US as Baby Dies In Iraq

“I begged them,” Jimmy Aldaoud said of his conversations with ICE agents. “I said, ‘Please, I’ve never seen that country, I’ve never been there.’ However, they forced me.

Editor’s note:  This is ICE again, operating on Trump orders and what they have done is bad, no question, illegal, of course, insane, as usual.
Detroit’s Chaldeans are all Christians and came to the US to avoid persecution in Iraq.  This is one of the world’s oldest Christian populations, groups greatly at risk in Iraq, a group that has been in Detroit prettymuch forever, and makes up much of that city’s business community.
ICE doesn’t know anything about Chaldeans, or the fact that the victim here is from Greece, not Iraq.  They sent him back to Iraq anyway.  Chaldeans in Iraq speak Aramaic like Jesus, not Arabic, live in Mosul, near the Syrian border and, if this person was sent anyplace, he should have been sent to Greece, where is has citizenship by birth or Syria where a legal government protects Christians.
A 41-year-old Detroit man deported to Iraq in June died Tuesday, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and two people close to the man’s family.The man, Jimmy Aldaoud, spent most of his life in the U.S., but was swept up in President Donald Trump’s intensified immigration enforcement efforts.

“Edward Bajoka, an immigration attorney who described himself as close to Aldaoud’s family, “Rest In Peace Jimmy,” Bajoka wrote. “Your blood is on the hands of ICE and this administration.”

The Trump administration has sought to deport more than 1,000 Iraqis with final orders of removal, including Chaldean Catholics in the Detroit metro area, of which Aldaoud was one. Chaldeans are an eastern branch of the Roman Catholic church who trace their roots to ancient Mesopotamia in present-day Iraq, where they are at high risk of being tortured or killed by the the terror group ISIS, the American Civil Liberties Union argued in a related legal case.

“Jimmy Aldaoud … should have never been sent to Iraq,” Rep. Andy Levin (D-Mich.) said in a written statement. “My Republican colleagues and I have repeatedly called on the executive branch to cease deportation of such vulnerable people. Now, someone has died.”

  1. “…as Baby Dies In Iraq” in the headline but not mentioned in the article, so what’s the connection ?
    the headline could have said “… as Babies Die in every country”
    “…if this person was sent anyplace, he should have been sent to Greece”. If he is a Greek citizen why didn’t he just get a flight home?
    “…or Syria where a legal government protects Christians”
    WHAT ?? I thought we were bombing the crap out of Syria because they are _killing_ their citizens (and gassing babies) ??
    Orange man still bad LOL
