Holocaust Survivor to ICE Acting Director: 'History Is Not on Your Side'

(Huffington Post)

Holocaust survivor Bernard Marks on Tuesday cautioned Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones against working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan to enact the Trump administration's deportation policies, the Huffington Post reports.

Marks, 87, had strong words for Jones and Homan at a public forum on immigration.

"I spent five and a half years in concentration camps, for one reason and one reason only: Because we picked on people. And you, as the sheriff, who we elected as sheriff of this county, we did not elect you for sheriff of Washington, D.C. It's about time you side with the people here."

He added: "And when this gentleman (Homan) stands up there and says he doesn't go after people, he should read today's (Sacramento) Bee. Because in today's Bee, the Supreme Court Justice of the State of California objected to ICE coming in and taking people away from the courts. Don't tell me that this is a lie. We stand up here, Mr. Jones, don't forget. History is not on your side."

Marks was referring to an article in the Sacramento Bee on California Chief Justice Tani Cantil Sakauye's annual address to the state's legislature where she said "the rule of law is being challenged" as officers continued raids on undocumented immigrants, including at courthouses.
