He looked so happy.

Jeff Sessions got an erection today. It had been a while. As we expected, Donald Trump dispatched the hayseed racist attorney general from the Confederate States of America to announce they will “wind down” the DACA program for undocumented children brought here illegally by their parents, giving Congress six months to fix it, and giving almost 800,000 innocent DREAMers six months to prepare to go back to their own countries, which is weird, since America is the only country most of them have ever known.

Watch as Sessions pulls his white hood off to ‘splain us how fucking these people over is the “compassionate” thing to do:

Sessions claimed, baselessly, that the DACA program led to a surge of unaccompanied minors at the border, which is funny since DACA doesn’t remotely apply to those people. Of course, Trump and Sessions are only doing this for their base of cousin-romancing white supremacists, and those people won’t be swayed by simple facts like that. Sessions said DACA beneficiaries took away precious American jobs, another lie he pulled out his ass. And he said Barack Obama’s executive action on DACA was “unconstitutional,” which is weird, because if executive actions involving immigration are unconstitutional, then how about Trump’s constant attempts to ban Muslims through executive fiat? We look forward to Trump supporters explaining how this is different because “reasons.” (Racism reasons.)

Want more lies from Sessions? Here’s the letter he sent to Homeland Security:

To be clear, DACA beneficiaries are the exact kind of immigrants the white nationalists in the White House (unconvincingly) say they want in America. 97% are either employed or in school, and a higher percentage of them have college degrees than the general American public.

Buzzfeed notes that this “wind-down” of DACA is Sessions’s little pig turd baby (and Stephen Miller’s baby and Steve Bannon’s baby) and quotes a White House official who said Sessions had put Trump “in a box,” since he was just flat dang unwillin’ to defend the policy in court. The New York Times reports that Trump had been looking for “a way out” of taking this action, and adds, unbelievably, that “as late as one hour before” Sessions’s statement, White House people were worried “Mr. Trump might not fully grasp the details of the steps he was about to take, and when he discovered their full impact, he would change his mind.” This is what happens when you elect a barely sentient child who lives inside a flabby orange senior citizen’s body as your president.

To be clear, all Trump wanted was to get out of being blamed for the fallout from this fulfillment of one of his most hateful campaign promises. It had nothing to do with his “feelings” about DACA immigrants, even though he said many times that “we love the DREAMers” and that he wanted to deal with them with “heart.” (Read more on that here from Josh Marshall.)

What is bugfuck amazing about this, especially coming from a president who enjoys approval ratings only slightly higher than cat shit, is that literally NOBODY WANTS THIS. (Nobody who matters or contributes to the American economy in any meaningful way, anyway.) Over 75% of Americans support DACA, including TWO THIRDS OF TRUMP VOTERS, as Philip Bump reports in the Washington Post. Over 400 business leaders told Trump to keep his tiny paws off DACA, too.

So let’s be clear about what just happened: This was a love letter from Trump and Sessions to the Nazis and white supremacists who marched through Charlottesville with tiki torches, some of whom Trump reminded us were just lovely folks.

Let’s see how Breitbart’s Deplorable in the White House reacted:

So, where does it go from here? Well, maybe Congress will act! Our GOP-led Congress is so very good at getting things done, after all! And maybe Trump will sign a thing, if Congress sends him something! Or maybe Trump will hold it hostage if Congress fails to give him the funding for his stupid fucking ineffective ugly ass border wall. Who can say!

The Washington Post has a good explainer on how this “six-month wind-down” affects DREAMers immediately, and the short version is that six months from today, March 5, 2018, most of them are screwed.

So how evil was this little stunt? So fucking evil. Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin says it’s Trump’s most evil act so far. Josh Marshall says this is the equivalent of Trump and Sessions kicking DREAMers out of a plane at 10,000 feet and saying they hope Paul Ryan catches them.

If you want to fight back, check out the DREAM Act Toolkit, which identifies key swing votes in Congress and offers tools to get the message to them that, on top of being cruel and terrible and evil, this action will fuck the American economy right up. It even has handy images for you to tweet at them, that show exactly how much money those folks’ states stand to lose if DACA goes away forever:

So feel free to harass the shit out of them on Twitter! If you see your congressman or senator on the list, CALL THEM. Also, sign this petition demanding the GOP to allow a clean vote on the DREAM Act right the hell now.

Whatever you do, do something. This is not about “immigration policy” or the Constitution or anything else. This is ethnic cleansing, pure and simple, and it’s happening IN AMERICA.

Anyway, but her emails, though.

    • Scooby

      It’s impeachment insurance. They know without his base they can’t win.

      • willi0000000

        mostly, i think, they’re insurance because he knows they’ll go completely batshit amok if any republican expresses interest in impeachment.

        they couldn’t do anything in the long run . . . but in the short run they could kill a lot of good people and make life miserable and scary for the rest.

      i think he is trying to scare everybody by supporting the nazis . . . maybe he’s having thousands of brown shirts made in his “fine” clothing factories sweatshops (at government expense, of course) and is just waiting for the right time to hand them out.

    California will lose $11.6 billion gdp just from deporting dreamers, per Issa. Coincidentally, in another situation that Trump is fucking up royally, the entire gdp of North Korea, the country Trump is willing to destroy the world over, is only $12.4 billion.

    Trump sees this as impeachment insurance. All Republicans know that without Trumps racist base they can’t win a primary much less a general.

  • jesuswasablack

    Doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. Of course the only reason Trump is doing this is because his rabid racist base demands it. I however think DACA should be rescinded, it is extra-constitutional at best. I want to see pressure put on Trump for refusing to enforce environmental, civil rights laws, etc. It’s hard to demand a President enforce some laws while asking him to ignore others. Hopefully congress will do their job and protect the dreamers with an actual law!

    • Bobathonic

    • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

      The right thing to do would have been to leave DACA in place while working with Congress.

    • jesterpunk

      I am pretty sure the Constitutional law professor that wrote DACA knows what is constitutional.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      If your point is that there could be a set of laws regarding immigrants generally that would be better than (well-intentioned) band-aids like DACA… then yes, I agree. However, I think we all agree that doing the right thing is preferable to outright evil, even if it has to be accomplished through duct-tape-and-chewing-gum solutions for now.

      • jesuswasablack

        Yes that is my point, I’m not for deporting the dreamers, but at some point they need to be protected under law, not an executive order that can be overturned as we have just witnessed?

        • Lord Jim

          He did because he was facing a Reupublican Congress that had marching orders to not let him do anything and that cowered before the hold AM radio hate-jockeys had over their racist constituencies.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          Well, you seem to be buying into the Republican line that all the little things that were put together by the Obama admin to create DACA are illegal just because congress didn’t specifically Ok each one. Your constitutional argument is very weak.

          • jesuswasablack

            No my argument is the dreamers should be protected by law not by executive fiat, you seem to think it’s OK for a president to ignore the law as long as he agrees with your politics?

    • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

      Here’s a piece saying it ain’t unconstitutional.

      https://thinkprogress.org/trump-admin-constitutional-case-daca-a3134e0059e3/

  • Joe Beese

    Josh:

    What Trump is actually doing is designed not to get a good outcome but rather to avoid blame for a bad outcome. That’s a major difference. Indeed, the way he’s going about it makes getting a legislative fix much harder. Now Democrats will rightly see any negotiations with the President on this front as negotiation with a bad actor. It’s not much better for the GOP. The real legislative problem here is on the Republican side. This triggers as significant intra-party fight under duress. No Republican leaders can be happy about that. Let’s hope they can make something happen. But the President’s approach is designed to make such an effort fail.

    What the President is doing is the executive action equivalent of flying the plane up to 10,000 feet, tossing the Dreamers out the door and yelling after them, “I hope you have a parachute or if you don’t that Paul Ryan can get you one really fast!’ Actually, one small difference. He had Jeff Sessions toss them out of the plane. The big picture is the same: this is an approach meant not to achieve any good outcome but to get out of the blame when bad things start happening.

    From Jennifer Rubin’s column at WaPo

    No, if Trump cancels DACA, it will be one more attempt to endear
    himself to his shrinking base with the only thing that truly energizes
    the dead-enders: vengeance fueled by white grievance. And it will also
    be an act of uncommon cowardice. (“Should Trump move forward with this
    decision, he would effectively be buying time and punting responsibility
    to Congress to determine the fate of the Dreamers,” writes The
    Post.) Dumping it into the lap of the hapless Congress, he can try
    evading responsibility for the deportation of nearly 800,000 young
    people who were brought here as children, 91 percent of whom are working.
    (And if by chance Congress should save DACA, it will be Trump who is
    the villain and they the saviors, an odd political choice for a
    president who cares not one wit about the party.)

    As
    for Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan, who talks about sparing the
    dreamers, will be sorely tested to overcome the objections of the
    hard-line anti-immigrant voices in his conference. Does he have the
    nerve to bring to the floor a bill that lacks majority support among
    Republicans? Tie it to a must-pass bill (e.g., Harvey funding, the debt
    ceiling, funding for the government)? In the Senate, will opportunistic
    right-wingers such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) grandstand, perhaps
    filibustering a measure into order to out-Trump Trump?

    However
    this turns out, the GOP under Trump has defined itself as the white
    grievance party — bluntly, a party fueled by concocted white resentment
    aimed at minorities. Of all the actions Trump has taken, none has been
    as cruel, thoughtless or divisive as deporting hundreds of thousands of
    young people who’ve done nothing but go to school, work hard and present
    themselves to the government.

    The party of Lincoln has become
    the party of Charlottesville, Arpaio, DACA repeal and the Muslim ban.
    Embodying the very worst sentiments and driven by irrational anger, it
    deserves not defense but extinction.

    • Rachel Book Harlot

      Truer words. They’ve been this Party for quite some time. It’s just that now the hoods have been forced off and they are forced to own it publicly.

    • Timothy Watson

      Her follow-up from today is pretty brutal too:

      Trump hid behind a tweet telling Congress to fix DACA. He declared, “Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!” He claims to “love dreamers.” That’s entirely disingenuous. There was no need to pull the trigger on DACA. No lawsuit compels it; the aggressive conservative attorneys general haven’t even filed their threatened lawsuit, which could take years to reach a final decision. It is Trump who is setting in motion a disruptive and fear-inducing measure that affects 800,000 or so young people brought here as children. It is Trump who could, but has not, presented actual legislation to Congress. It is Trump who could insist, but has not, that DACA legislation be included in the debt-ceiling measure, the Harvey relief funding bill, the budget or other must-pass legislation.

      The false emergency in the form of a faux constitutional deadline that Trump and Sessions hide behind is belied by the conditions they place upon DACA’s repeal. Trump will allow pending applications filed before today to be processed. How is that possible if the measure is unconstitutional? Trump will also reportedly allow those with permits that will expire before March 5, 2018, to renew their permit for two years. How is that possible if the measure is unconstitutional? In trying to soften the blow of a heartless policy, the Trump administration reveals that it is making up constitutional rules as it goes along.

    Question: If a bunch of American born citizens lined up to marry dreamers, could they stay?

    • Mavenmaven

    • laughingnome

      The Trumpenfuhrer would probably try to pass a law against it.

    • theblackdog

      For me even if it worked they’re probably going to come after gay marriage next :-P

    • VirginiaWackelpudding

      Could a citizen or a whole darned state adopt them? This needs a creative answer that would tie up court orders for years to stall any action. Until 45 gets deep sixed with votes any resistance is worth a try.

      • Rags

        A state (CA?) could try to forbid repatriation of DACA residents. Whether the Feds would try to militarize the situation by Federalizing local law enforcement or activating the National Guard is a question. Whether that would lead to martial law is another.

    • NastyBossetti

      I imagine there will be more scrutiny because of this, making it harder to prove your marriage to an immigrant is “real” and not just a green card marriage. I’ve been through the process. We had to have people write letters testifying that we were a “real” couple. I had to prove that if MrBossetti lost his job, I could support him. I had to promise that even if we divorced, I would support him if needed for a set period of time (5 years I think). We had to bring pictures of our life together and our families and then we were quizzed on who was in the pictures, where were we, what were we doing there, whose parents are in this picture, etc etc.
      I guess it’s possible if you’re already friends with the person and know them well enough and are willing to make those promises, but I would say it’s pretty unlikely.

    • writersbloc

      Yeah, my brother as well as a couple friends have gone through the process of marrying non-citizens and it’s actually a real pain in the ass and takes months of proving your relationship is real.

      It’s nothing like buying a gun.

    They can try to deport the dreamers but we don’t have to stand by and let it happen. This is the same situation that Jews faced in Nazi Germany. We don’t have to cooperate with these Mfs and we should take steps to hide these dreamers or make their job of deporting them harder. That’s how the good people in Nazi occupied countries protected Jews and we should do the same for these people.

    • jesterpunk

      The one thing this law is going to do is make the smaller companies pay the workers under the table. There is no way they would lose most if not all of their staff and be able to stay in business so it just cuts the tax money the governments will get.

      • Calli Arcale

        Well, that’s how it works in Saudi Arabia and many other Gulf states. The path to citizenship there is nearly impossible, short of actually marrying a citizen (and even then, it’s really only your kids who will benefit). But they have a *massive* illegal alien population, and they work a hell of a lot of jobs. It’s basically a way to have slavery after banning slavery. And it’s hard to imagine that none of the people pushing to end DACA haven’t thought of that.

        • jesterpunk

    At 33% approval and under Grand Jury investigation Trump has no capital on the hill and this issue will turn more GOP against him. Good for Dems but not good for Dreamers in Limbo.

    In 2013 the Rep congress passed an immigration reform bill with a large margin but Boehner refused to bring it up for a vote because it would have got his ass thrown out so maybe they will bring that back and pass it but it doesn’t look good.

    And you can see the ass-covering calculation built right in; Trump calls on Congress – vaguely – to replace DACA with legislation. If Congress actually drafts and passes legislation that protects the DACA demographic, then Trump can make a show of reluctantly signing it to stay on good terms with his rabid base that he just made happy with this repeal. If Congress drafts cruel, xenophobic legislation, he’ll sign that with a similar show of reluctance – and Congress-blaming – to try and appear compassionate.

      It’s so much worse than that.

  • Michael Smith

    It seems to me that Trump’s goal is simply this: keep reminding your base how much they need you. Do draconian things to provoke non-Trumpists into condemning Trump, and, by extension, anyone who voted for him. Make sure your voters know that they need to stay motivated and mobilized in the Trumpist cause, because Trump makes the hard decisions for Our Country, while the LIBERALS try and destroy it at every turn.

    The Republicans accept this because they simply want to be in power. They want to be in power because that means they’ll be in the positions to keep regulations minimal, and do whatever else is needed to make sure that the government looks out solely for corporate interests. They have long since recognized the impossibility of gaining popular support for an agenda that benefits so few people. Instead, they turned to giving reactionaries and racists “harmless” little treats in exchange for supporting corporate domination.

    However, as they say, there’s no such thing a victimless crime – these racist “treats” were never harmless. They just only harmed groups low down on the totem pole, whose grievances were completely invisible to them. As they’ve sat back and allowed Trump to crank up the intensity of the GOP’s courtship of racism and bigotry, the kinds of “treats” they have to offer now are beginning to undermine the entire political system. Maybe some Republicans recognize this. But would that be enough to convince them that its worth losing their authority over the regulatory state?

    I doubt it. Because ultimately, I don’t think they want democracy. I think that for them democracy is only as good as it enables them to manipulate the state for the benefit of the aristocracy. If the only means at their disposal for this is to whoop up racist animosity, then fine. And if it undermines faith in democracy, then that’s killing two birds with one stone.

      “It’s not an easy one,” Sanders said. “But at the same time, you can’t allow emotions to govern.”
      Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Trump’s decision to end DACA. Earlier today CNN reported that was because there was a tug-of-war inside the White House and Trump wasn’t happy with the decision.
      “It’s in large part a big part of the legal process,” Sarah Sanders said when asked about this.”
      A lot of nothing in those statements, Sarah.

      EDIT: There’s no guarantee that the GOP would actually pass such protections.

    • Wolf Tracker

      I would not think the GOP sees it that way and what Trump did is set up a massive battle between the Freedom Kochus that wants no immigration at all and the GOP that has many Red sttes that rely on immigrant labor and I see the GOP being primaried if they keep DACA or pass a real immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship.

    In today’s news of the WTF, aides worried Trump might not have understood the implications of the DACA decision before it was announced? “As late as one hour before the decision was to be announced, administration offficials privately expressed concern that Mr. Trump might not fully grasp the details of the steps he was about to take, and when he discovered their full impact, would change his mind, according to a person familiar with their thinking, who spike on condition of anonymity without authority to comment on it.”

  • The PBS thing on aging suggested that a healthy and working immigrant work force actually keeps our rapidly aging population in check and is healthier long term for the economy and everyone in it. They called it a “beer barrel” population thanks to a steady influx of immigrants
    Whereas countries with stringent immigration, say Japan and Germany, are experiencing a precarious hour glass shaped population that is teetering on disaster. IE, more people retired than working.

      Indirectly, us working salary-earning tax-paying working stiffs pay the pensions and healthcare costs of The Olds. The fewer young’uns that are able to work and pay into The System, the less able The System is able to support the older generation.

      What’s more, most immigrants tend to be of working age, looking to find work and contribute to society, not leech off said System nor blow it up.

    Ok, and breath…. :)

    Trump has so far deported FEWER illegals comparatively than Obama. I never heard a peep about the “racist” deportations under Obama. Not surprisingly, considering the media never famed them as being racist. :/

    About the 800k everyone is sure will be deported. Not gonna happen… I’ll take your wagers now :) How do I know they won’t be deported? (AKA What makes me so racist?) Because there are +12M illegals in line ahead of the dreamers AND the dreamers are statistically choice immigrants. Not to mention it would be a PR nightmare.

    • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

      sigh…

      Obama’s DHS focused on dangerous, felonious immigrants, which are typically harder to find – even WITH picking up school teachers and soccer coaches, Trump and Co. is still lower cause crossings are down.

      I’ll take your bet! ANd you wanna know why? The 12 million are underground, the dreamers have their addresses, relatives, schools and jobs on paper in a government office somewhere. Easy picking’s – and you think this administration gives a shit about PR nightmares? Have you been awake the last 6 months.

      Know what you’re talking about before mouthing off.

      • twaingirlie

        Actually Trump’s ICE group has rounded up more immigrants but hasn’t been able to successfully deport as quickly through a lot of stay of deportations being filed. The difference also is that there are not so many children crossing the border and being rounded up (as there were with the Central American immigrant crisis in 13, 14, and 15. Prolly because parents are like nah man don’t go there. It’s not safe). And how do I know? I work in an immigration attorney office. Our requests for stay for deportation have tripled since Jan. AILA posts pretty comprehensive reports too.

        So please tell the 13 year old calling my office crying because ICE chased her toward her school that she should just breathe.

        • Molon Labe

          Good. I am all for giving people their day in court. What percentage of the cases that go through your office are granted stay? Of those how many are allowed to remain in the country legally?

          Nobody wants kids detained or deported. However, your example makes ICE sounds as if they are dog-catchers roaming the streets looking for kids to snatch up. Is that really how they operate? Chasing random kids through the streets as they make their way to school?

          • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

            Technically, immigration cases are civil, there is not necessarily a required day in court (called expedited removal) and there is NO right to counsel.

            But we’ve wandered from the point. You said these kids won’t get deported first…when ICE has the Dreamers info in a file, they are, as I said, “easy gets” and will get tossed quickly, in an especially cruel way as most of htem have never known any other country as home. Some (most?) don’t even speak the language.

      • twaingirlie

        That was supposed to be toward OP and not you, sorry TEX Dept of Space Taco

          no worries, well said.

      • Molon Labe

        Yes, violent criminals should be the priority. It was great for Obama to ramp up deportations to record rates. Crossing are down? Perhaps, the most effective method is preventative.

        Do you really believe the illegals are hiding in the “underground”? You just made your case that Trump is rounding up school teachers and soccer coaches. Maybe the juxtaposition of those suggestions is counter productive to your argument?

        • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

          “Crossing are down? Perhaps, the most effective method is preventative.”
          I suspect it’s multiple reasons, but one of them is the economy crashed. As my immigration law prof said, “They figured if they were going to be poor, they might as well be poor back home.”

          “Do you really believe the illegals are hiding in the “underground””
          Underground in the sense they’re being paid under the table and not registering with authorities, yes. “You just made your case that Trump is rounding up school teachers and soccer coaches. Maybe the juxtaposition of those suggestions is counter productive to your argument? ”

          Not really, these are the “easy gets” – people who are/were following various regulations and getting popped for it (there was an article about a guy who was going to do his check in for some reason and being detained).. Also, the feds have began sticking their noses where they don’t belong – see the trans woman detained here in Texas while trying to get a protective order against her SO.

          • Molon Labe

            I am all for limitations on the federal government, Amen. However, after looking up the case you suggested, that person could easily be considered a violent criminal having convictions for both assault and domestic violence. Good riddance. My sympathies also decrease when deportees are repeat offenders.

            If ICE overstepped it authority by entering the courtroom, then those who made that decision should be disciplined. Considering this person has already been deported a handful of times, I am skeptical how effective the present system is. Again, I think a more preventative strategy would resolve allot of these issues.

      This is what I was referring to:
      The Trump Administration Now Has Tons Of DACA Data And Is Poised To Weaponize It

      DACA recipients – often called DREAMers – are facing a new nightmare. According to the Trump administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers may use the information these people gave the government as a means of gaining temporary protection to, instead, find and deport them.

      In deportation proceedings, the government must prove that the person they want deported is in the U.S. illegally. That can sometimes be tough. DACA recipients – nearly 800,000 of them – gave the Department of Homeland Security information proving they are undocumented so they could get relief from the threat of deportation. They also gave the government information about where they live, work, and go to school. As soon as Donald Trump was elected, immigrants’ rights activists started asking what his administration would do with that information.

      http://www.thedailybeast.com/the-trump-administration-now-has-tons-of-daca-data-and-is-poised-to-weaponize-it?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+thedailybeast%2Farticles+%28The+Daily+Beast+-+Latest+Articles%29&yptr=yahoo

      • Molon Labe

        “DREAMers trusted the government” :/

        So, the fear there is that ICE will use the DACA information as a shopping-list of people to deport. While I can understand the fear of the government having all your information, I still remain skeptical that is how they will proceed.

        “In practical terms, Fresco said, this means that any DACA recipient who gets arrested by police will be vulnerable to deportation. That’s because police alert a host of federal agencies, including ICE, when they make arrests. ICE officers will then be able to ask USCIS if people who were arrested have received DACA—and, thus, are in the U.S. illegally.”

        Apparently, USCIS has always referred cases to ICE which meet the criteria for removal (criminals). However, I do understand the difference between being deported due to a criminal conviction and the concern that ICE could refer to DACA information on demand.

        I have a theory about those record numbers of deportations under Obama. I saw somewhere those deportations were 91% violent (or serious) criminals, which really is an impressive number. Combine that with the surge of people enrolling in the new DACA. Could it be that Obama’s deportation numbers and the percentile of violent criminals was an unintended result of the DACA? In other words, all these people apply for DACA, then (whatever percentage) are referred to ICE due to a new conviction or to a previously unknown criminal history coming to light? Not only easy pickings but the government apparatus ensures the pickings are easy. Just a theory.

  • Moar Wordz

    I wouldn’t tell people to O.K and breath in this particular thread, Trump is rescinding DACA, the act that protects Dreamer immigrants who’ve undergone EXTENSIVE
    CRIMINAL BACKROUND CHECKS, as well as being approved for the DACA program as long as they’re EMPLOYED, in SCHOOL or BOTH. From clicking the links and reading the articles about this issue, I learned that DACA program further was/ is contingent upon the DREAMERS NOT BEING ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, or “entitlements ” as the alt-right spins it.
    An alt-right Foghorn, Ann Coulter, wrote a book about heinous crimes commited by immigrants, who, as she described it, live off of welfare and food stamps almost immediately and exclusively upon arriving in the U.S. This really burns her up. THESE ARE NOT THE DREAMERS. TRUMP has shot himself in the foot again.
    Allowing immigrants who have criminal records for things like rape, assault, pedophilia, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, hell, dog and chicken fighting, was a huge mistake. It will ALWAYS be a mistake. But sending children, teens, and young adults home who have a positive impact on the U.S is not “compassionate” or caring. It literally made me sick to see Sessions say ” compassionate” with a little smile.

  • Hazel Blumberg

    Watching Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, ace racist and bigot, get all red in the face with ecstasy while he talked about “compassion” and throwing 800,000 people out of the US was such a non-pleasure. The Dreamers are the people the US NEEDS! Beauregard has no doubt forgotten that he isn’t a Native Murcan and that therefore his own people came from Somewhere Else. Were they legals or not? Who knows? My grandparents fled pogroms in Lithuania in the early 20th century for the US. They spoke no English. But they learned the language, started small businesses, got married, had children, and saw those children go through college and even graduate school, things they would never have been able to achieve back in Lithuania. I have no idea if they were legals or illegals. But what the hell: let’s all self-deport.
