    How evil and unprepared are Trump workers/policies?

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-...614-story.html

    Colleagues at a government-contracted shelter in Arizona had a specific request for Antar Davidson when three Brazilian migrant children arrived: “Tell them they can’t hug.”

    Davidson, 32, is of Brazilian descent and speaks Portuguese. He said the siblings — ages 16, 10 and 6 — were distraught after being separated from their parents at the border. The children were “huddled together, tears streaming down their faces,” he said.

    (they don't even have proper interpreters)

    "Officials had told them their parents were “lost,” which they interpreted to mean dead. Davidson said he told the children he didn’t know where their parents were, but that they had to be strong."

    Davidson is on MSNBC is confirming that the crying baby video that is making the rounds of TV and the internet is commonplace.

    The United States isn't the only country with an immigration crisis. Most of Western Europe is now confronting a similar problem.

    Maybe we can elect an even more obvious white nationalist like Austria has. That should make BFK happy.

    Trump has his own Austrian Nazi spokesman in Sebastian Gorka.

    Increased immigration and emigration in the context of an increasingly globalized economy? Weird

    If you can live in Germany and work in France or live in Luxembourg and work in Belgium, why can't people live in Tijuana or Juarez and work in the US? It's not that difficult to implement.

    Jeff Sessions tries to beat back Nazi comparisons, gets literally everything wrong

    Border Patrol officers have apparently been telling parents that they’re just taking their kids away to bathe, only for the parents to realize hours later the kids are never coming back. This is the exact same thing concentration camp guards told people before being taken to gas chambers to stop them from panicking, which has led to a lot of Nazi comparisons in the press.

    Fox Host Laura Ingraham asked Sessions about these comparisons on Monday night. Here was his response: “It’s a real exaggeration. In Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country.”

    It's kind of like when Pubs would say Obama was weak with our military, until you realize how many drone strikes he carried out and how upset it made liberals.

    The thing is though is that the US is NOT facing a immigration crisis. That is a completely made up fairy tale from a populist administration, and now being adopted by the GOP.

    Europe on the other hand actually is experiencing an immigration crisis on a greater scale than the world has seen since WWII, the two are not comparable.

    The ability to work through two positions that juxtapose each other is asking an awful lot of the rube army. You could have two segments of Fox News run two counter narratives and the rubes would parrot both back no questions ask without realize one argues against the other.

    Here is data showing (with raw numbers at least) that the Obama Administration was more aggressive at pursing prosecutions and deportations that G.W. Bush: https://bipartisanpolicy.org/blog/th...tion-pipeline/. Though admittedly the prosecution rate grew un Bush and accelerated after policy changes in 2005, however Obama kept it up and even grew the prosecution rate in the first 2 years of his administration.

    Hopefully this is a lesson to Democrats. The right will believe whatever they want to believe. There's no point trying to work with them to carry out an agenda.

    In ICE Detention, a Honduran Woman Fears Deportation Without Her Son

    On May 5th, just after midnight, a Honduran woman named Ana Rivera and her five-year-old son, Jairo, tried to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. They were caught scaling a fence in El Paso, and spent the night in a holding cell at a U.S. Border Patrol station with other mothers and children, a group of about twenty-five people in all. On the afternoon of their second day in detention, two male agents entered the cell. “They didn’t say anything,” Rivera told me. “They just walked over and grabbed Jairo. It felt like my son was stuck to me. He clung to me, cried and screamed. They had to pull him away.” She pleaded with the agents to tell her what was going on. The other women in the cell were too stunned to speak, Rivera told me. In the next few hours, the agents started taking other children, too. Eventually, the mothers were told that they would be reunited with their children after spending a few days in jail.
