The public objections of 70 Ex-U.S. Attorneys will only reinforce in Trump’s mind the correctness of his policy.

Thank you to each of those who signed on to this, and for Preet Bharara for writing/spearheading this.


I believe you are quite right – and I have very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, Spankee’s “damn the torpedos, full speed ahead” stance on this will very likely have a palpable positive-for-Dems effect in November. On the other hand, the horrors of this policy are far too great a price to pay to win.

Yes, I know. The Goopers wouldn’t shy away for a second – their “winning at any (human) cost” attitude has inured them to suffering. We Dems, sadly, are soft and squishy and refuse to win on the backs of our fellow human beings. It’s depressing that having a heart means losing. (Sorry, very bummed about all of this.)

In general, this policy and behavior are what makes Trump existentially dangerous to all life: he is always right, Everyone else is wrong. Only one person is right on the entire planet: him. Incredible the extent to which his self-centered ego is destructive to everything, everything.


A sizable proportion of GOPers would line up both the kids and their parents against a wall and have them shot. At its core this is pure racism and xenophobia.
We should all look forward to the day caucasians are in the minority in this nation. And I say that as a caucasian. The only event that is going to bend whites toward compassion and tolerance will be electoral defeats. Once a majority of Congress is comprised of blacks, Hispanics, progressive women, Muslims, Asians and the like we’ll see true change in the land. Until that day racism and xenophobia will rule the day. Most of us will be dead and buried by the time that happens, but certainly sometime around 2075 caucasians will be getting a taste of what they’ve been dishing out for 500 years.


The chorus includes clergy as well:
Hundreds of members at Sessions’s church write formal complaint over immigration policy
More than 600 members of the United Methodist Church signed onto a letter Monday condemning Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant parents and children at the U.S. border.


So we now have 70 lawyers ready for a temp job at the Hague…

The letter is too long, Fat Nixon will never read it. They should do it with emogis and photos of white people for him.

Yes, I get that this letter is signed by Democrats and phony so-called Republicans, never-Trumpers all and the Deep State’s roving ambassadors. I get that they don’t understand the all previous presidents going back to Washington were totally ineffectual in dealing with the barbarian hordes swarming over the border. They will get down on their knees and bow down to Trump when he disrupts this mess and fixes it for once and all.
