Immigration

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trump Reportedly Tells Stephen Miller: You’re “in Charge” of Immigration

A purge is currently underway in the Department of Homeland Security. In the wake of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen’s resignation Sunday, a slew of top DHS officials appear headed for the exits as President Trump and his dead-eyed policy adviser Stephen Miller look to ram their immigration priorities through no matter the cost or consequence. It is part of a broader seizure of power by the White House in an effort to implement its noxious—and typically illegal—immigration policies. In fact, Trump is reported to be keen to resurrect the most controversial and amoral of all his anti-immigration ideas—separating families at the border as a means of deterrent.

With potential crimes against humanity in the offing, it should surprise no one that the Wall Street Journal reports Trump is handing over the reins on immigration in America to his trusted henchman, Stephen Miller.
An administration official said Mr. Trump recently told Stephen Miller, one of his most hard-line advisers: “You’re in charge” of the administration’s immigration policy… Mr. Miller, the White House adviser, is also pushing to reinstate the [family separation] policy, according to people familiar with the discussions. In recent weeks, he has pushed officials at the Homeland Security and Justice departments to “get in line” with a more aggressive approach to immigration, one of the people said.
Administration officials told the Journal that while Miller has always been active in DHS’ immigration-related decisions, Miller has been newly empowered by a president spoiling for a fight on immigration.

Gulp.

Just when you thought that this headline was no longer even possible . . .
Donald Trump’s Ilhan Omar Tweet Might Be the Worst Tweet in History

... 1. It’s dishonest....
2. It’s racist....
3. It arguably incites violence....
4. It’s hypocritical, opportunistic, etc....
5. It’s in all caps.
All caps makes everything 50 percent dumber.

It’s a crowded field, but I think you could make an argument that, given the reach of Trump’s account and the stakes involved—him being, you know, president—the Omar tweet was objectively the worst one ever sent. Or at least you could have made that case until Monday afternoon, when Trump used Twitter to send firefighting tips to the nation of France.
Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!
It turns out that this suggestion could have caused the total collapse of the entire structure. Truly, we may not live in the worst moment in history, but we certainly live in the one that most resembles being trapped inside a TV that an angry, racist crank is shouting at 24 hours a day.
That was fast for a new "Worst Tweet in History". :roll:

Trump, billy.pilgrim and I would have a better conversation with Auburn's basketball coach, Bruce Pearl, than Ilhan Omar would.

        The topic will be Israel. Auburn's coach Bruce Pearl is a good man, billy.pilgrim should be proud to have him as the mentor of Auburn's young people.
