The headline reads: “Massachusetts Prison Loses Homeland Security Contract Due to Abuse”, whereas it should say “Massachusetts Prison Loses Homeland Security Contract Due to Political Retaliation” .
I’m not at all surprised by this, because for years the same ultra-liberal fanatics have made despicable accusations against Sheriff Tom Hodgson and the ICE correctional and detention facilities. They are settling the score in the name of the Biden administration’s backtracking of Trump-era immigration policies by terminating the contract between ICE and the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office.
Even before Hodgson was named honorary co-chair of Trump’s Massachusetts re-election campaign, many partisan groups had Sheriff Hodgson in their telescopic glasses. And like the squeaky wheel, these diehards would create a media scene to attract negative attention. I am not at all surprised by this; The point is, when Trump was not re-elected, political buzzards began to surround the C. Carlos Carreiro detention center.
Media coverage must get its talking points from the same source, describing the facility as a place where allegations of violations of immigrant and civil rights have zealously taken place. The truth is, the entire Democratic delegation at the state and federal level wanted to turn the situation around on Hodgson. They all took turns whipping the sheriff in a public place, describing the establishment as a place of cruelty, brutality and misanthropy.
This image does not conform to the best and highest scores of national standard tests, examinations and unannounced inspections. Hodgson maintains an orderly, clean and civilized facility. Do not believe in the wicked political sabotage directed at him or the establishment.
It was Biden’s way of settling a score with Trump, while Attorney General Maura Healey even had years of hostility and animosity between the two. And the local actors, those who kept the fire at Hodgson’s feet at the weekend. For them, it must be a temporary sweet revenge.
Ironically, the Biden administration wanted to politically punish the sheriff. This is what we mean by saying that elections have consequences.
