The full quote is even worse than the link makes it sound:
“I’ve been to detention facilities where I’ve walked up to these individuals that are so-called minors, 17 or under,” Morgan said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in January. “I’ve looked at them and I’ve looked at their eyes, Tucker — and I’ve said that is a soon-to-be MS-13 gang member. It’s unequivocal.”
This motherfucker just looked at a child and decided he was evil, and considers that “unequivocal” enough to go on TV and brag about it.
“So-called minors, 17 or under” Bitch what?? That’s what being a minor means????
Take this seriously.
This is an important window into authoritarian psychology, though: the belief that people just intrinsically *are* good or evil, and that it’s easy to distinguish between them. To the fascist, there is no reason to ask why someone would join MS-13 or whether it could be prevented; and you can’t argue against punishing innocent children because to this goose-stepping bald chucklefuck, innocence and guilt aren’t about what you *do*, they’re about what you *are*. There is no ‘becoming’, only ‘being’.
His name is Mark Morgan and he’s Acting Director of ICE. There is no scheduled hearing in the Senate for his appointment. He could serve as Acting Director indefinitely.
The truest example of inherently demonizing young latine people. How racist and unethical.
