Thursday Open Thread
Lots of end of year stuff to take care of. Here's an open thread, all topics welcome.
From Wired: The year intellectual property trumped civil liberties.
Update: ICE launches a hotline and new form for detained individuals "to ensure that individuals being held by state or local law enforcement on immigration detainers are properly notified about their potential removal from the country and are made aware of their rights."
... detained individuals can call if they believe they may be U.S. citizens or victims of a crime. The hotline will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by ICE personnel at the Law Enforcement Support Center. Translation services will be available in several languages from 7 a.m. until midnight (Eastern) seven days a week. ICE personnel will collect information from the individual and refer it to the relevant ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office for immediate action.The new form, available here, instructs law enforcement they may not hold a detainee more than 48 hours after the individual would have otherwise been released.
