Quitting Over ICE? He Joins Us Monday
DOL Employee Who Quit Over Immigration Enforcement Joins Us on Montana Talks
A Montana Department of Labor employee quit his job in Helena because he didn't want to help ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforcement) enforce immigration laws on illegal immigrants. After quitting his job and taking to Twitter over concerns that his work would help ICE "hunt down and deport" illegal immigrants, Jordon Dyrdahl-Roberts started getting national attention from outlets like The Huffington Post and The Washington Post.
We'll hear from Jordon himself Monday morning on "Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint, our new radio show based out of Billings, Montana.
Whether you agree or disagree with his reasoning, or his thoughts on enforcing immigration laws, it seems we can at least respect the fact that he stood on principle and quit his job as a result.
"Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint is live Monday through Friday from 6AM to 10AM. Jordon will join us shortly after 9 AM on Monday's show. If you're in the Billings area, tune in to 95.5 FM, 970 AM, or listen live at www.newstalk955.com. You can also download the Newstalk 955 app for your smart phone.
Plus: "Let's Make a Deal." How does $32 million sound?
You can keep the bad guys locked up, and unlock some revenue for the State of Montana all at the same time. Sounds like a deal. That's the offer State Sen. Llew Jones (R-Conrad) and Rep. Rob Cook are throwing on the table.
As Phil Drake recently reported for The Great Falls Tribune, The State of Montana can keep the privately-run prison up and running south of Shelby, and take in roughly $32 million.
So why won't Governor Steve Bullock (D-MT) take the deal? Join us Monday morning on "Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint as we also chat with State Sen. Llew Jones and Rep. Rob Cook shortly after 8 AM.
