The immigration thread: American Melting Pot or Get off my Lawn

"The myth, which liberals like myself find tempting, is that only the right has changed. In June 2015, we tell ourselves, Donald Trump rode down his golden escalator and pretty soon nativism, long a feature of conservative politics, had engulfed it. But that’s not the full story. If the right has grown more nationalistic, the left has grown less so. A decade ago, liberals publicly questioned immigration in ways that would shock many progressives today."

LOL....  This is not funny but then again, it is.  Politicians, on either side, hate to see this kind of support.  It's the proverbial skunk in the punch bowl but I don't think it's fair to say that because the KKK supports one side or another, that it reflects the views or beliefs of whomever might be the target of that support.

Oh good.  

 

 

 

In theory this ruling could have been worse (though it should have been much better). But it looks pretty bad to just do this before reviewing.  In practice and implementation...especially if Trump or other officials tell them to ignore the exceptions...it's likely going to be a ****ing ****show. 

 

It might not be as widespread as it could be though, since we've cut back on issuing visas in the first place.

I am mixed on this. The 90 days is passed so it's kind of a moot point and not needed. However, the ruling is needed incase Trump or other presidents need to do so again in the future.
