Not separating children from their parents would be a start, Trump supporter.
But why was that even done? Because US law says that you need a visa to enter America or be granted asylum. It’s a violation of law and being jailed is an option when you enter America without a visa and when you are jailed you can’t take your children. So if the United States repealed all its current laws saying you need a visa then a family could just enter with no risk of any problems.

You have concocted a really bizarre theory that I support trump. That’s really bizarre and unforgivable

I was just going to post this! Why won’t US border patrol totally open up the borders so all the people can go directly to charities who put them hotels?

The administration had planned mass arrests that would have included families with children and parents of children who are US citizens ahead of Nielsen's exit. https://www.washingtonpost.com/immi...989555e7766_story.html?utm_term=.636ba6e4ec2c
All because US law says people need visas

Trump considers new bailouts for farmers. :wall:https://www.washingtonpost.com/busi...989555e7766_story.html?utm_term=.3535aeb0a3f2


Weren't tariffs in the hands of Congress originally? Can't they pass something to take it back?
Of course they can and there are veto proof majorities to repeal all the tariffs

Politicians would take a different line if they thought politically it was worth it. They can get away with it because there are voters who will support them on these policies.

So people need to follow the law or be put in jail? Hmmm, I am waiting for a defendant to use the Trump Jr defense of “I am just too fcking stupid to understand the law therefore it shouldn’t apply to me.” Or the Steve Mnuchin defense of “I don’t like that law so I am not going to do what it says.” And we will see how it goes for someone who is not white, male, and Republican.

I oppose mueller not indicting trump jr
I oppose the democrats not impeaching mnuchin
I oppose the us laws demanding visas or risk criminal charges

Trump jr, mnuchin, and illegal aliens are all benefiting/have benefitted from non enforcement of laws and rules

Either repeal the laws you don’t like or enforce them! I don’t like not enforcing the laws for some and enforcement of them for others depending on situation.

Trump's lawyers argued that Congress can't investigate if the President is engaged in corrupt conduct in office. https://usatoday.com/story/news/pol...cial-records-mazars-court-hearing/1187746001/


Op-ed on Barr's third investigation into the investigators without any grounds for the investigation. https://www.thedailybeast.com/willi...probe-sends-chilling-message-to-fbi-for-trump

In addition to harming the effectiveness of the FBI, Barr’s complicity in Trump’s tactics may also have a chilling effect. By advancing the “investigate the investigators” mantra, Barr may cause the FBI to flinch next time it perceives a threat from powerful people within the government.

If the courts rule in Trump's favor and Barr's investigations have the intended effect, the President will be put above the law without violating a single law or even the Constitution and the US will slide further towards authoritarianism.

Thank you for the link to a good, long article. It calls for calling white nationalism/supremacy terrorism, which it is.

The 13,000 member FBI Agents Association agrees:

@FBIAgentsAssoc
· Oct 24, 2018
(1/3) FBIAA President @tfoconnor83 issued the following statement: “Today’s events are a reminder of the national threat posed by domestic terrorism and the vital role that law enforcement plays in thwarting these threats."


FBI Agents Association
@FBIAgentsAssoc
(2/3) "The FBIAA urges Congress and the White House to ensure that federal law enforcement has the tools to track, investigate, and punish domestic terrorists. This means amending the United States Code to include a penalty for domestic terrorism regardless of target or weapons.

The ad on this page (Adblocker doesn't work anymore) is a happy birthday to president trump and a place to click to "sign the card". Uh, you really don't want me to!

This is chilling. It is reminiscent of Kristallnacht.

I’m so depressed about the direction this country is headed, particularly with the new anti abortion laws in Georgia and Alabama. Their sole purpose is to get to the Supreme Court and overthrow Roe v. Wade. We are turning into Gilead.

Pro Choice laws have been eroded to extinction already. We can still focus on fighting laws in states, but it's time to put more energy towards financial support for those seeking abortions. There are organizations that aren't getting much airtime nor acknowledgement for helping women gain access to abortions.




  • Access Reproductive Care - Southeast: ARC is a volunteer organization that helps families in 12 states across the southeast access reproductive care.

    National Network of Abortion Funds: NNAF is a network of more than 80 funds in at least 38 states that seeks to eliminate economic barriers for low-income individuals seeking an abortion.


    The Yellowhammer Fund: Based in Alabama, Yellowhammer not onlyprovides funding for abortions at one of the city’s three clinics, but also helps with other barriers to access patients may face, such as travel or lodging. (Yellowhammer is part of NNAF.)

    Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund: Run entirely by volunteers, the Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund helps people access abortion, and provides both support and resources to parents.

    Get unlimited access to The Cut and everything else New York.
    LEARN MORE »
    Women Have Options: This Ohio-based organization provides financial assistance and support to low-income patients seeking reproductive care, abortion included.

    National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum: NAPAWF is a multi-issue community-organizing and policy-advocacy organization that fights for policy changes that would benefit women, transgender, and non-binary Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

    Volunteer as a clinic escort.
    If you live in a state with a restrictive abortion ban — or nearby one — one tangible way to support abortion rights is to become a clinic escort. Find out more here.

    Or, you can always see if one of the above organizations are seeking volunteers.
    Women should support other women/girls in their decision to terminate pregnancies. They are never going to stop women from terminating pregnancies. It has always happened and it will always happen. I honestly believe that many of these laws are patriarchal in nature; a means to punish and control women's reproduction and some who make the laws have a racist agenda behind it.

    I wish there were an uncomplicated avenue for me to leave the US, until Trump leaves office!
Unfortunately, I think the ramifications of his presidency and the GOP agenda will have long lasting effects on the US. I am not trying to be a Debby Downer but that Trump is not the disease. His administration's actions are not new ideas/proposals nor are they different from what many republicans and conservatives have longed to do. Many republicans/conservatives admire his results of this admin. Don't let them tell you they don't.

I am watching a German news service (can't sleep so have the late night news channel on). The Alabama story is the lead item.

This is appalling for women's personal and health rights. I just saw that the four women voting in Alabama voted against it. Everyone else voting were men. Again f*cking men making decisions that impact on women. If abortion is banned in the US, it will go underground, threatening the lives of many many women.

This comes down to Trump allowing a culture of conservative emboldenment to impose their moral views on society.

I am hoping it won't threaten more lives. I'm hoping that healthcare clinicians, law enforcement and everyday citizen will be willing to stand up and fight the laws with disobedience. Offering and assisting with Pharmaceuticals, Herbal remedies to help terminate pregnancies and to offer contraceptive options.

I have already seen articles and items about contraceptives being targeted through planned parenthood and not being funded through insurance. Again it is about f*cking men (I cannot think of any other way of describing these a*seholes) trying to control women's health.

No. They are trying to control women.
