    Somehow, I got on the official mailing list from the Trump/Pence team. Today, I got an official "secure the border survey", which obviously is designed to rile up his loyal base. I'd be tempted to respond to it using a fake name and email address, but I don't think that it would be worth the effort.

    There are so many Democrats for president that I was not even aware that Tulsi Gabbard and Julian Castro had declared their candidacy - but the Trump team noticed.

    Regarding question 15, there IS something else I would like to share with Trump regarding immigration, but I would not be able to use the phrase in a family newspaper.

    The New York Attorney General is probing allegation of wage violations at Trump's golf course in Westchester. Among other things, undocumented workers were told to work extra hours without pay, a situation that has occurred at multiple other properties. Trump's abuse of undocumented workers goes back decades, since he used (and abused ) illegal Polish workers to demolish the building that used to occupy the site where Trump Tower now sits.

    Trump's latest threat is to deport "millions of illegal immigrants", even though ICE does not have the capability of deporting more than 400,000, at the most.

    When Jesus was confronted with 5000 immigrants - he fed them.

    Forget what Jesus did. For all intents and purposes, IMO Jesus is a myth.

    Let us, as human beings do the right thing, and I don't mean anything close to being right wing. When people from another country come here, let's treat them with kindness, dignity and respect for they have traveled a very long distance to get here for a better life, and what's wrong with that? Maybe I'm one of those radical democrats that believes people should be treated the way we would like to be treated. Trump's ancestors probably came here to the USA for a better life, he has forgotten that little detail about his family. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_of_Donal...

    "Donald Trump's paternal ancestry is traceable to Bobenheim am Berg, a village in the Palatinate, Germany, in the 18th century. Johann Trump, born in Bobenheim in 1789, moved to the nearby village of Kallstadt where his grandson, Friedrich Trump, the grandfather of Donald Trump, was born in 1869.[33][34] This German heritage was long concealed by Donald Trump's father, Fred Trump, who had grown up in a mainly German-speaking environment until he was 10 years old;[35] after World War II and until the 1980s, he told people he was of Swedish ancestry.[36] Donald Trump repeated this version in The Art of the Deal (1987) but later said he is "proud" of his German heritage, and served as grand marshal of the 1999 German-American Steuben Parade in New York City."

    History of the US will tell you that it already started in 1500 when the settlers came here and murdered thousands of Indians and grabbed their land as well put them in "Indian camps". After that they brought in the "slaves" which were put in "slave camps" (shed's). So nothing new here. Sorry this is the "me, me, me" only country, especially the "whites" brought that culture here as well their "religions" to cover up their wrongdoings. That is how "hypocrites" were created here; like Trump, Pence and Pompeo who are the best examples. Religion is always used as an "cover up"

    I know, the truth hurts.

    Germany is taking an entirely different approach to people seeking asylum, and it has paid off handsomely for the country.

    The influx of human capital is happening a crucial time for the economy in Germany, where the population is aging and unemployment is at its lowest level since the 1990 reunification of East and West Germany.

    Both of those issues are also problems in America.

    Dozens of Jews were just arrested outside a detention center/concentration camp in Elizabeth, New Jersey yesterday, and they essentially shut it down.

    Here is what one of them had to say:

    "200 Jews are shutting down an ICE detention center because we when we say never again we 👏🏼 fucking 👏🏼 mean 👏🏼 it. #NeverAgainIsNow"

    The only thing I hope for that the "immigrant" problem "explodes" in Trumps face and will affect his re-election.

    However I saw an "stat" yesterday which showed that 65 % of the Republicans still think Trumps policies at the border are OK. And these people are still going bravely to church? Are they so "indoctrinated" that all "feelings" are gone? I guess there is no "shame" or only "FOX brains" in those people, forgetting that the Republican Party has been hijacked by the Trump family and has no longer any decency or exists as it was intended.

    A federal judge in Seattle on Tuesday blocked a Trump administration policy that would keep thousands of asylum seekers locked up while they pursue their cases, saying the United States Constitution demands that such migrants have a chance to be released from custody.

    For the past 50 years, the government has given asylum seekers bond hearings before immigration judges where they can argue that they should be released because they are not flight risks and pose no threat to the public, the immigrant rights groups told the court. That gives the asylum seekers an opportunity to reunite with relatives in the US and to find lawyers to handle their asylum claims, making them more likely to succeed.

    The government's new policy which was scheduled to start on July 15, would have kept between 15,000 and 40,000 people locked up for six months without showing any justification for their detention.

    We've been down this road before:

    The insanity continues ....

    Nationwide raids to arrest thousands of members of undocumented families have been scheduled to begin Sunday, according to two current and one former homeland security officials, moving forward with a rapidly changing operation, the final details of which remain in flux. The operation, backed by President Trump, had been postponed, partly because of resistance among officials at his own immigration agency.

    In early June, the Department of Homeland Security’s acting secretary, Kevin K. McAleenan, told Mr. Morgan to call off the operation. Mr. McAleenan did not support the raids, officials said at the time, in part out of concern that undocumented parents could be separated from any of their children who are American citizens.

    Now for a bit of history ..

    During the September 1939 "Polish Campaign", the Nazis arrested 61,000 Polish citizens and sent them to camps, where most of them perished.

    The Trump administration really is not much different - it's just a matter of scale.

    Lori Lightfoot said that the City of Chicago will not cooperate with ICE people. ICE will not be able to access a database the city has to assist in their roundup of alleged illegal immigrants. Chicago police will not assist or go to places which ICE requests to back them up either. Advocates for alleged immigrants will be out in force to document what ICE does.

    This activity ordered by Trump is designed to tear families apart. If you are an immigrant, you should seek shelter with advocates for your protection. The raids are supposed to begin early Sunday morning, (07/14/2019) and if you're in doubt about your immigration status, try to not be where ICE can find you, there are numerous venues you can attend to completely avoid being found. Make sure that have your cell phone with you, and make sure you have an attorney to contact.

    BTW, Japanese citizens were not the only demographic of peoples rounded up and placed into internment camps during WWII: Japanese-, German-, Italian-Americans and Native Alaskans during World War II

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_concentra...

    In this Wikipedia find of an internet search, rounding of peoples is nothing new, this has been going on ever since white men conquered American Natives dating back to 1838. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_concentra...

    Just to let people know who read this post, Trump has used the murderer and rapist charge pertaining to people from over the Mexican border, just as previous politicians did in the 1800's.

    On 26 December 1862 thirty eight Dakota warriors, including We-Chank-Wash-ta-don-pee (often called Chaska), who was pardoned, were hanged with the label of murderers and rapists of civilians rather than ‘war criminals’ in the largest mass execution in United States history at the order of President Abraham Lincoln, with the remaining 361 prisoners being sent to segregated prison camps in other states just days before the Emancipation Proclamation was issued

    Dock, I guess people forget that we now live in an age of fast transfer of info. Trump and his cronies forget that this news is readily available all over the world. I read it in the newspapers in Europe on line. THERE IS NO LONGER ANY RESPECT FOR THIS COUNTRY, except with the "dictator" buddies of Trump. Yes this country follows the footsteps of Stalin and Hitler, be proud of it.

    The latest; Pence visited an TX "camp" with his religious nose up in the air and blamed of course the Dem's. The way he stood there with Graham was pathetic. He still dares to say "they are treated good" and all of this is the fault of the Dem's.

    The only thing I hope is that the whole "immigration" issue is going to be the "noose" around Trumps neck.

    Sunday (while Pence "bravely"attends church) they will start the "raids" (razzia's) as Hitler did, it will make things even worse; thus even more overcrowding and who is going to process all these people at what cost?

    In the meantime Trump hops on "our"( it is owned by the "people") big plane just about everyday and no one blinks. The cost for this asshole's trips have reached just about one billion. Who cares, why should you have laws and rules for Presidents? It is so much more fun to let the guy waste our tax money unlimited; just raise the debt ceiling with the stroke of a pen and all is well. Sorry people I guarantee that such can't last forever.

    The same happened before WWII; the economy was great as well the jobs and then the great depression came. The same will happen now. You can't keep on living beyond your means. The "debt" of this country is enormous and will become its downfall.
