Three separate appeals have been filed in response to the Santa Maria Planning Commission’s 2/5 approval ​— ​which saw 5,000 people show up in opposition ​— ​of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility. The appeals, filed by homeowners, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), and Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC), allege, among other things, that the center will harm the health, safety, and property values of residents and will be an eyesore. All appeals will be heard by the Santa Maria City Council on 3/12.

What would be the reaction if the exact same building was to be social services?
No doubt it would create more traffic and crowds than an ICE facility.

Same whiners, same complaint: We don't want to be accountable for our actions.

Add some architectural decorations on the outside and grow a 10' hedge around the perimeter with some higher end driveway gates (wrought iron with curly Qs on the top would be nice).

Oh, and reality check: there are no visiting immigrants in confinement at ICE facilities - only visiting *ILLEGAL* immigrants.

Legal immigration = good
Illegal immigration = no good

This is a very, very difficult thing for people to realize and make a distinction about.

I recently heard that the Mexican president is upset that the US is enforcing immigration laws.
