The current administration and its policies toward immigrants makes this particular Blue Bloods episode truly relevant now. Such policies as we see here would get you a gold star with ICE. Judy Reyes, tenant organizer and general rabblerouser is arrested by ICE and awaiting deportation.
Turns out she never knew that her mother was really her aunt and she came to this country undeclared. Will Estes and Vanessa Ray get involved with some Romany folks who have a fortune telling business that would call a racket.
We learn that Eddie Janko is a believer in psychics. Mike Pniewski is a guy who is probably going far in the current administration with their attitudes toward folks with a bit more pigmentation in their skin.
The precinct captain in the area where they plan to raid is Esai Morales and he's rightly concerned about community relations. Years ago I knew a young man who was living on the streets in Manhattan who had a problem something like what Reyes did. His parents were Puerto Rican and were traveling in Canada where he was born in Saskatchewan. They came across the border and didn't declare him. Social services took him and his sister away and they were raised in Group Homes.
But Roy Gomez went out and lived on the streets. I helped get his citizenship recognized, not that it mattered in the end as he died of AIDS in Today ICE would send him back to Canada where he knew absolutely no one. I think about that when I see this story from Blue Bloods and the current heartless policies being enforced. This review is for you Roy. Sign In.

Company Credits. Technical Specs. Plot Summary.First there was Karina who was conned by her own family into thinking she was a legal U. That left me with several questions. On one hand, she seemed to be fighting for people who were being taken advantage of by a low life landlord, who, if my rusty Spanish is still any good, called her a whore, for which she slugged him.
Erin: The truth as a hustle. Danny: Everything is a hustle; the key is to not be the sucker born every minute. Considering he was sitting on a bar stool at 10am, drinking and scratching off lottery ticket after lottery ticket, money was definitely his only clear motive. Eddie: Adrianna, my psychic, she told me that my soulmate has long hair, a beard, and a piercing in his left ear.
Jamie: So your soulmate's a pirate. Then again, the girl was very talented…not as a psychic but as a con artist. The best part was when Jamie and Eddie both realized that it was all a scam. Watching Jamie poke fun at Eddie as they went for lunch reminded me yet again why I enjoy these two together, whether as partners or as a possible romantic couple…even if Jamie lacks the long hair and earring. It's not about social services, it's not about community outreach, it's not about turning this precinct into a shining city on a hill.
At its core, it is about taking criminals off the streets. Frank literally walked out the door on the man, mid sentence. It was just rude. The police also have to deal with the mentally ill, as well as many differing sections of society. The complexity of current day policing is what makes it so damn hard.
My favorite scene was the Reagan family dinner where they argued over the origins of the word grifter, Frank explained how everyone uses a bit of a hustle at times, and Nicky poked fun at his age and changing times by claiming to never have heard of a Rolodex. But the best Blue Bloods quote goes to Danny…. Follow her on Twitter. For the Community Review Editor Rating: 4.

Social workers not only help people with immediate needs, but set up systems that will endure after they leave.
The situations they encounter can be heartbreaking: children who have become mute or otherwise regressed because of atrocities they have witnessed, adults who think they are seeing the results of witchcraft… or that there is simply no help to be offered.
