Immigration The Trump Adminstration

Former White House Aide Stephen Miller Could Face Charges For Human Rights Abuses

During the four years of the Trump administration, Stephen Miller was one of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s closest and most influential advisers, especially on the issue of immigration, where he urged Trump to separate immigrant children from their parents and place them into internment camps reminiscent of the horrors inflicted upon Japanese Americans during the Second World War.

But if one member of Congress has her way, Miller will soon be facing charges of violating the human rights of thousands of people.

The Hill reports:

A House Democrat … called for former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller to be jailed, citing what she called ‘human rights violations’ at the southern border.

“Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said on The Intercept’s ‘Deconstructed’ podcast that Miller should be “behind bars” for his role in the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

“I think he committed heinous human rights violations, and I think that those around him [who] helped plot this out should be held accountable, as well.”

And while Rep. Escobar will no doubt have plenty of Democratic colleagues who also believe Miller should indeed be locked up for the things he did to immigrants seeking asylum in the United States, she acknowledges that it will be a challenge to get the former White House adviser formally charged for his crimes against humanity:

“That is going to be very difficult, but it kills me that these people could potentially walk away and even potentially rebuild their reputations. I find them to be just among the most reprehensible, abhorrent people that our generation could have ever produced.”  

The House Judiciary Committee is currently taking a long look at the way the Trump administration dealt the issue of immigration, including the incarceration of toddlers in horrific conditions: Forced to sleep on cement floors, denied essentials such as soap and toothpaste, and treated like criminals.

For his part, Miller just formed a new legal nonprofit organization he calls America First Legal, which he claims is aimed at “resisting the radical left’s agenda.”

Sounds just like something a neo-fascist would say, doesn’t it?

Former Staffer Reveals Trump’s ‘Incandescently Stupid’ Plan For Getting Cattle Over His Border Wall 

One of Donald Trump’s signature issues and campaign promises when he ran for president in 2016 was that he’d build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and make the Mexican government pay for it.

Here’s a quick video memory refresher:

However, as soon as construction began on the wall, it soon became clear that some unanticipated problems would require solutions, according to former Trump administration Department of Homeland Security Miles Taylor in a soon-to-be-released book he’s written, Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy From the Next Trump

According to Newsweek, one of the most daunting challenges involved cattle.

In his book, Taylor recalls that in a March 7, 2019, meeting, Trump “out of nowhere” complained that ranchers in Texas were being allowed to open doors in the border wall to allow their cattle to reach the Rio Grande.

“No doors. I don’t want doors,” Trump said, according to Taylor. “How crazy is this? There are doors in the border wall? It’s stupid. They can just walk up, open the door, and thousands of [illegals] rush in.”

Kirstjen Nielsen, then the homeland security secretary, told Trump that this wasn’t true, Taylor writes. But Trump “didn’t care” and ordered them to acquire any land where ranchers had access to the Rio Grande.

But if you build a wall with no doors, how in the world will the cattle be able to go across?

Trump’s solution: Have the animals cross via ladders.

“Give the ranchers ladders. They can use ladders to get to the other side, but not doors. You could use small fire trucks. Call the local fire stations, and use the ladders on their trucks to help them get over.”

Taylor says the idea was “so incandescently stupid I couldn’t laugh.”

How do you tell a moron with no understanding of basic physics and the animal world that cows and horses are not going to climb ladders, no matter what’s waiting for them on the other side?

Of course, none of this should surprise anyone when you consider some of the other moronic ideas the Donald had while serving as president. For example:

And now we can add cows traversing ladders. The idiocy has no bottom with Donald Trump.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: The US Is Unsafe For Migrants Because We Have So Many ‘Natural Disasters’

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), immigrants fleeing their home country due to climate change need to stay where they are because the United States has so many natural disasters that it might wind up being more dangerous than the nation they came from.

At a hearing of the House Border Security and Enforcement Subcommittee, Greene was in full dumbass mode as she told Department of Homeland Security official Blas Nuñez-Neto, “Right here, it says that you say the reason why people are coming to America today is because of violence, food insecurity, severe poverty, corruption, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic. So we have homelessness here in America. Natural disasters, talk about climate change. This is the fourth largest country in the world. We have an extremely diverse climate. We have a wide range of natural disasters.”

“97 natural disasters occurred in 2021,” Greene added. “I don’t think this is very safe for migrants here in America. We had 97. How many are they having in their country?”

Greene then went on to name the sorts of disasters to be found in the U.S.

“Wildfires, heat waves, droughts, flash floods, winter storms, cold waves, tropical cyclones, and on and on and on.”

“But yet they need to come to our country because of climate change?” she asked. “It’s not a safe country either, by the way. In America, there were 1,313,000 violent crimes in the US, and that was in 2020.”

Well, damn, Marge! If things are so freaking dangerous in the United States, when you are planning to pack up your shit and move? They say Russia is lovely this time of year, provided you don’t dare say something negative about Putin and wind up “jumping” from a 10-story building.

Just when you think Margie can’t possibly get more bigoted or more ignorant, she opens her mouth yet again and proves otherwise.

Here’s the video:


Congress GOP Immigration

Lauren Boebert Just Proved She Has Absolutely No Idea How Time Works

Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has never been the sharpest knife in the proverbial drawer, but something she tweeted out Monday afternoon regarding the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border is now making some wonder if she can even understand how time works.

The subject of Boebert’s tweet was the so-called “surge” taking place at the border since Title 42 ended last week.

Has there been a massive influx of migrants since the policy ended? No. There hasn’t.

The Hill reports:

According to the most recent figures released Monday, the number of encounters at the border fell by about 50 percent in the first three days after Title 42 was abandoned 

Whereas the daily number of such encounters had been predicted to reach somewhere in the ballpark of 13,000, it instead came in around 5,000. There were few scenes of disorder or chaos. 

And yet, Boebert tweeted out this:

Just how stupid is Boebert? Is she unable to read a chart? Or is the congresswoman so mentally challenged that she cannot even understand last week versus this week?

Twitter users were only too happy to answer that question and also mock Boebert for her lack of comprehension.

MT Greene: Melania Trump Is Proof That Republicans Support Immigration

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), it’s simply not fair to say that Republicans are opposed to immigration and the proof of that is their love of former First Lady Melania Trump.

During debate on a Republican border security bill, Newsweek reports, Greene began her comments on immigration by referencing the wife of failed and indicted former president/sex offender Donald Trump.

“I would like to remind everyone that Republicans believe in legal immigration,” Greene said on Wednesday. “As a matter of fact, we are very proud of our former first lady, Melania Trump, who immigrated legally to the United States. But there is a clear difference in policies when we talk about border and security for the United States of America.

“I think it is very important to remind my colleagues across the aisle what our oath of office actually says. We swear an oath that we will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

The Georgia Republican added, “That is a very important oath to swear and it is one to uphold but this is not being upheld in the past two years under this administration. We have seen nearly 5 million people cross our border and it is unsustainable.”

Greene’s claims about Melania’s immigration being legal aren’t exactly factual. As a matter of fact, there have been plenty of questions about how she managed to obtain a visa in the first place.

Mrs. Trump immigrated to the United States on an EB-1, or “Einstein visa,” which is reserved for those “of extraordinary ability” and “sustained national and international acclaim.” That usually means people Nobel Prize winners or those who have earned Olympic medals. She has neither of those and later helped her parents obtain U.S. citizenship even though they possess no special skills or awards.

While Greene may want to try and put a happy face on the Republican policy on immigration, the facts are clear: They want to keep just about everyone from coming to the U.S. unless they have connections or marry a rich sexual predator like Donald Trump.
