Again and again

Slate article on random ICE sweeps.

Why is it that the American government and the American people continually fail to learn from the past? Indiscriminately sweeping neighborhoods with high concentrations of people from a particular race in order to fulfill a yearly quota of illegal immigrants. Mistreating those people when detaining them. Why has it always been so easy to dehumanize? It might just be an indication of my niavete that these things continue to surprise me.
