    As with any and all republicans, especially ilk like Lindsey Graham, they're two faced bastards and will flip to agree with trump at the drop of a hat, lesson being, don't trust what any of them say.

    Some of Trump's former employees met with Samantha Bee this week. They told her that Trump fired them so that he would not get caught. In one case, a woman was given $175 so that she could obtain fake documents.

    When investigative reporting began to reveal that undocumented workers were still employed at Trump’s clubs well into his presidency and its anti-immigrant agenda, they said, that’s when the mass firings began. “He got rid of us,” another former worker told Bee. “For what? So they wouldn’t catch him having illegal workers.”

    Although all eyes have been lately on the Democrats’ recently announced formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, there’s still a lot of activity on other fronts too. Now, a federal judge has blocked their team’s ongoing attempt to dramatically expand those eligible for expedited removal from the United States. As the plan updated, those subject to possible removal would have expanded from those in the country for less than two weeks to those in the U.S. for less than two years. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had apparently participated in a lawsuit against the arbitrary policy change, which sparked the current ruling.

    It's not only the picking of fruit and veggies in the fields, it's also skilled craftsmen like painters, roofers, landscapers, and house builders that are in short supply as ICE cracks down on undocumented workers.

    Angie's List: Shortage of Workers Impacts Skilled Trades

    As one employer writes: “Our problem is finding hourly employees … to show up for a job,” he says, adding that many applicants don’t know how to run crews or do basic math. While Muth would gladly teach a newcomer, he says there are simply not enough people willing to work their way up from an entry-level position. “Nobody wants to work,” he says. “We are losing our skilled labor in the United States — it’s going away. ”

    There are several reasons for the shortage including young people seeking college degrees and white collar jobs instead of trades, the ageing work force (baby boomers retiring), and changing demographics, but the problem is exasperated by denying work visas for skilled labor from outside the country and cracking down hard on undocumented workers here.

    Yes you got the picture. Sorry to say the American culture is more or less only concentrated on how much money you can make by sitting on your ass and staring at an "screen". You can judge any country by the "art" they produce; there are here no Rembrandt's neither Michelangelo's. Sure pump out huge ugly buildings and big Caddilac's, that will help. Roofers and yard workers are insignificant, we''ll make everything from "plastic" so you don't need them.

    Boeing's issues clearly shows that common sense no longer applies here, neither in our government.

    The resident Nazi in the White House, Stephen Miller, just suffered another loss in federal court over the weekend. Miller’s latest diabolic plan was for immigrants to come with proof of health insurance, according to The Washington Post. Without that documentation, they could not obtain a visa. The order required immigrants to prove they would be able to buy health insurance within a month of coming into the U.S. Clearly, Trump’s new policy would favor wealthy immigrants. Both immigration and health experts claimed that this edict would hurt low-income immigrants who had not come for work that offered them health care benefits.

    One day before the new immigration policy was set to go in to effect, Portland, Oregon U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon issued a temporary restraining order.

    The latest hare-brained scheme the White House has cooked up is to send asylum seekers from El Salvador and Honduras to Guatemala, and even people in Trump's administration know that it is a very stupid idea. Materials given to officers by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials included “information on pervasive violence against women in the country, killings of indigenous activists, prevalence of the notorious gang MS-13, and a link to a research paper that states ‘a culture of violence and impunity pervades all of Guatemalan society today.’”

    I guess, looking at the total picture of what is going on then the only conclusion is that this country has become un-governable and an typical South American like country, which has lost any common sense. Someone on TV read the whole list of all the craziness under Trump. May be Schmidt can dig it up and publish it. Sure if you keep Miller in place success is assured. I just wonder how long can all of this last; Nixon was kicked out for a lot less than Trump does, but he stays and may even get an second term. What is the matter with this country?

    In the meantime Pelosi is in Spain and Trump is in London. That will help a lot for sure. I guess both are fed up with everything what is happening here. Just let Nader fix all of this on his "lonely self", because Trump is not sending any lawyers or being there himself on Wednesday. What a fun country! In the meantime the stock market is plunging again, Hoera!

    The soybean farmers are out of luck, Brazil has taken over the export, but the farmers here still support the idiot who is now giving subsidies to the farmers who still vote for him, because FOX News reigns in the rural area's. What a country!

    We discussed a while back how Melania got to be a citizen AFTER she started working as a model.

    A few years back, her parents became citizens via the "chain migration" rule - which Trump swears he wants to eliminate.

    Melania has an older sister named Ines, who received citizenship in 2017, despite the fact that she did not have a job at the time.

    Fortunately, she does not to pay rent. The 49-year-old [now 52] lives in a Trump-owned apartment in the same Upper East Side building that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump called home (before they moved into their new house in Washington). It’s just four blocks from Trump Tower, where the first lady and Barron live in a triplex penthouse.

    A letter in this morning's Arizona Republic illustrates why we need MORE illegal immigrants.

    The letter was written by a nurse who was brought to America from Mexico when she was 4. Officially, she is a "dreamer", but as early as this month, the U.S. Supreme Court could rule that Arizona’s more than 24,700 DACA recipients, childhood arrivals whom the federal government has allowed to live and work here since 2012, are eligible for deportation.

    I guess this country has no shame or any decency let alone respect for people who do all the difficult jobs here. Yes this remains to be an typical third world country. It shows this in just about everything; if you steal your money (like Trump) you get rewarded, if you earn it by hard work you get punished.

    The Trump administration is famous for coming up with foolish new rules - and then quickly retreating from them in the fact of organized opposition.

    The latest example is the attempt to bar international students from studying in the United States if all of their classes are taught online amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Harvard sued. MIT sued - and so did 59 other colleges.

    The backlash was immense. More than a million international students come to the United States every year to earn a degree that will help them land better jobs, and some remain after graduation.

    Universities rely on international students, who usually pay full tuition, and local economies benefit from their spending. In Massachusetts there are 77,000 international students with active US study visas in Massachusetts and another 32,000 in the rest of New England.

    Just another example of how Trump reacts to situations. In his view he could use international students to force the universities to hold in-person classes. Or if that didn't work, he could rid the country of these foreigners...many of them that don't look like good white Americans. That would play well with his base of uneducated white men.

    Until someone told him of the economic impact of losing international students. Oh!
