How are they going to be remembered?

I know Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has a difficult job, and for the most part is made up of good people, but at some point, someone in the agency will have to think seriously about how he or she as an individual wants to be remembered.

Because they have to stop doing shit like this:

Muhammad Ali Jr. had just returned to Florida from Jamaica, where he had accompanied his mother, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, who was there giving a speech about black history. After arriving at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport, Ali Jr. — son of one of the greatest boxers of all time — was detained and asked at least twice about his religion, according to family friend and attorney Chris Mancini. Ali — born in Philadelphia in 1972 — and his mother are both Muslim.

“To the Ali family, it’s crystal clear that this is directly linked to [President] Trump’s efforts to ban Muslims from the United States,” Mancini told the Courier-Journal (Louisville, Ky.) on Friday about the alleged incident, which occurred on Feb. 7.

About 75 years ago, this was tyranny:

Eighty years from now, when photos like the one below are viewed …

… do ICE agents want their grandchildren and great-grandchildren to vilified them as if they were the German soldiers in the World War II photo?
