Jesus, it gets worse every single day.

The Trump administration on Monday moved to end asylum protections for most Central American migrants in a major escalation of the president’s battle to tamp down the number of people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone.

There are some exceptions: If someone has been trafficked, if the country the migrant passed through did not sign one of the major international treaties that govern how refugees are managed (though most Western countries have signed them) or if an asylum-seeker sought protection in a country but was denied, then a migrant could still apply for U.S. asylum.

But the move by President Donald Trump’s administration was meant to essentially end asylum protections as they now are on the southern border, reversing decades of U.S. policy on how refugees are treated and coming as the government continues to clamp down on migrants and as the treatment of those who made it to the country is heavily criticized as inhumane.

So Trump’s solution to the inhumane treatment of asylum seekers by the US Border Patrol is to simply deny them asylum in the first place? 

You know what?

I think it time that the French just took the Statue of Liberty back. 

Because it no longer represents who we are as a country.

    so that takes care of just about everyone, however he left out the coming by sea loophole, so instead of walking they will come by sea, if they don’t drowned first.

    We now know the “Deep State” really does exist but nothing the right wing fantasized them being was remotely true. It was their deep network of racist evangelical nationalists all along acting behind a smokescreen.

    Jesus loved children.
    Blessed children.
    Healed children.
    Identified with children.
    Highlighted their attributes.
    Warned us not to hurt them.
    And called them the owners of the Kingdom.

    It is “absolutely integral to the meaning and spirit of the story being told.”
    “Trump’s relegation of whole nations filled with black and brown people to an undesirable inconvenience is another step down a slippery slope. If it’s not called out and stopped, it could lead to something far worse than hurt feelings.

    Which is why we should still take a moment to be shocked when the president of the United States says racist things.
    Even if you know his history.”
