American Civil Liberties Union Director Anthony Romero penned his thoughts on the Department of Homeland Security in a USA Today opinion piece — he called for the dismantling of the agency and said it is a “loaded weapon that sits on the proverbial coffee table in the Oval Office.”

The piece lists issues the ACLU has against the department including spying on Black Lives Matter leaders, killing foreign nationals, and supposedly separating children from their parents at the border — an act that is used to try to stop human trafficking and kidnapping and to verify the parents aren’t traffickers.

“The short history of DHS has been filled with violence, the stoking of fear and a lack of oversight. The department’s horrific tactics are being used in cities across the country,” Romero wrote.

He called out the DHS for treatment of rioters and protestors in Portland — the ACLU is already suing the agency for this.

“People across the political spectrum watched in disbelief a federal agents were deployed to American cities — despite objections by mayors and governors — to escalate violence against protesters. Paramilitary forces abducted people exercising their constitutional rights in Portland, placed them in unmarked vehicles and took them to undisclosed locations,” Romero wrote.

Romero called for the agency to be broken up and for the nation to start over with how to approach national security.

“We can preserve our freedoms and our security better by dismantling DHS and beginning anew,” he said.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
