Defying the law again.

Courtesy fo Huffpo:

The American Civil Liberties Union told a judge Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s administration has separated more than 900 migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border since June 2018, despite a court order for the government to slow down the practice.

In its 200-plus-page filing, the ACLU alleges that the government has separated 911 children by way of a loophole the court allowed for children whose parents had a criminal history or showed signs of disease or neglect.

“The government is systematically separating large numbers of families based on minor criminal history, highly dubious allegations of unfitness, and errors in identifying bona fide parent-child relationships,” the ACLU wrote, asking the judge to clarify what conditions should apply to the exception.

Some of the criteria the government has cited, The Washington Post reported, include a child with an unchanged diaper, a parent with a speech impediment and a parent convicted of causing $5 in property damage.

Jesus! By those standaards almost every parent in the country could lose their child.

I still remember when the GOP identified as “pro-family.” 

Or has that always just been “pro-white family?”

    “If you look at it statistically, it’s like, the number of shootings, the number of crimes, the number of everything — this morning I heard a statistic, Baltimore is worse than Honduras, OK?”

    Former DHS acting inspector general John Kelly — who serves on the board of the company that operates the largest shelter for migrant children — has reprimanded Nakamoto in the past for not being “thorough” in its inspections.

      “Legend said that Trump was “a flaming racist” and “a piece of sh*t” who tries to inflame racial tensions “all the time.”
      there’s “a century of history” that has created problems for people in the city and that “we need to focus on making all of our communities better instead of talking sh*t about a community just because you’re a racist prick.” “Trump “is an evil f*cking canker sore on America’s whole landscape, so we need to get him out of office.””

      One of the reasons why I was so excited when she was cast as Mary Magdalene is her rendition of this song, which she makes her own. As she said in The Sing Off re: PTX, “that was just f*ckin’ awesome!” 🙂
      I love him so…
