Ripping apart families is just the beginning of Trump's white supremacist immigration onslaught

Ripping families apart is just the beginning for the Trump administration, Politico reports, and Steven Miller is at the helm. This isn't even about bargaining chips at this point. This isn't about giving Republicans any kind of job-saving legislative negotiating tools. It's about aide Steven Miller's white supremacist wet dreams. First up is an idea they've also worked into the supposed «compromise» immigration bill the House is expected to take up later this week. They want to rescind rules limiting how long migrant children can be kept in custody. In the House bill, they worked in a provision that allows Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain children and parents seeking asylum indefinitely. “Once you rescind that regulation, then you go back to being able to do whatever you want and the detention becomes the complete discretion of ICE,” said Leon Fresco, former deputy assistant attorney general for the Office of Immigration Litigation at the Department of Justice. “That is where people think this is headed.” The next thing you know, asylum-seekers will be headed to Guantánamo. But that's not all. Some of the other things they're talking about: «tightening rules on student visas and exchange programs; limiting visas for temporary agricultural workers; making it harder for legal immigrants who have applied for any welfare programs to obtain residency; and collecting biometric data from visitors from certain countries.» By all means, do more to piss off the agriculture states! That's brilliant. This is all the proof Republicans should need that Trump—and his immigration brain, Steven Miller—do not care whether or not congressional Republicans are re-elected. They are seizing this opportunity to do one thing: make America whiter. That's the one and only intent, elections be damned.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton volunteers to be Trump's loyal foot soldier in ethnic cleansing

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is clearly auditioning to be the next white supremacist attorney general when popular vote loser Donald Trump finally decides to fire the current one, Jeff Sessions. xDems' Keep Families Together Act is better called the Child Trafficking Encouragement Act. Show up at border with a minor & call him your child, then you get released into the US! Children will be abducted & sold to drug cartels & slave-traders as a free ticket into US.— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) June 19, 2018 Never mind that the legislation from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)—which every Democrat has signed onto—has several provisions explicitly designed to protect children in cases of suspected trafficking.  Cotton is just reiterating the worst of Trump’s white supremacist rantings. These aren’t families fleeing terror and violence, but “animals” that are trying to “infest our Country.” Trump is purposefully using the language that white supremacists and regimes intent on genocide—and yes, Nazis—have always used to dehumanize the other, to justify inhumane, immoral ethnic cleansing policies. Cotton is totally on board.  And so is every other Republican who refuses to take real, concrete action to stand up to Trump. Can you give $5 to help keep immigrant families together—or bring them back together after separation?

Senator refused entry to detention center: 'It’s clear this administration is hiding something'

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) tried to tour a detention facility where migrant children are being held in Florida, especially in light of the fact that the Trump administration is refusing to provide any photos, videos or tours of facilities where migrant girls and young children are being held, insisting only on distributing tightly controlled images of boys and men. Despite having spoken with the head of the facility to arrange their tour and check up on these children, they were greeted by a representative of the Department of Health & Human Services who told them they could not enter and advised them to come back in two weeks. TWO WEEKS! What is so bad that they need two weeks to prepare for a site visit? Watch as the pair explain to the representative that they cleared this with someone at the **private company** (follow the money below) running this facility and that they wanted to speak with him directly because they need to check on these children. Denied. xHHS just blocked us from entering its facility in Homestead, Florida to check on the welfare of the children being held here. They are obviously hiding something, and we are going to get to the bottom of this. pic.twitter.com/q4m6Zd0ck2— Senator Bill Nelson (@SenBillNelson) June 19, 2018

Trump takes nation hostage, tells GOP senators he'll shut down government if he doesn't get his wall

Campaign Action It's becoming more and more clear that there's nothing Donald Trump won't do to get his border wall. That includes sacrificing the Republican Congress in the midterm elections, because that's exactly what will happen if he carries through on his latest threat: to shut down the government October 1 if he doesn't have it. In a meeting with Republican senators and staff Monday afternoon, Trump «fumed» about the fact that he's only getting an incremental $1.6 billion this fall for his wall and is demanding he get a lump, sources in the meeting told Politico. He «did not give a specific number, but has been fixated on getting the $25 billion in a lump sum,» one source said. If he doesn't get it, he told senators, he'll shut down the government this fall. The exchange was hinted at in this quote from Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), who said «He's focused on border security. And like all presidents, he wants it done now. But we're part of the legislative process, it's slower and deliberate.» Trump is not like all presidents, which Shelby very well knows. «It's probably an overwhelming belief in the House and the Senate, especially the Senate,» he warbled, «that government shutdowns aren't good for anybody.» No, they are not. And he'll do it. He's willing to rip thousands of families apart, steal children from their parents and make absolutely no provisions for reuniting them. He. Will. Do. Anything. And every Republican in Congress is aiding and abetting him. Can you give $5 to help keep immigrant families together—or bring them back together after separation?

Facebook users torched the State Department live Q&A session about family travel in the U.S.

The U.S. State Department is apparently being run by a group of immature trolls because today, of all days, they hosted a Facebook Live question and answer sessions called, “Family Travel Hacks” about summer traveling in the United States. As you might imagine, the questions were straight fire and at the time of this post, the two staffers assigned to run this shit show had gone missing, never answering a single question. Let’s hope they aren’t locked up in a cage somewhere. Here’s a sampling of the questions they are running from on Facebook: These international responses show just how damaged our reputation is around the world.

Trump was sustained through 2008 real estate crash by all-cash transactions from Russian oligarchs

McClatchy documents a flurry of all-cash sales that Donald Trump made directly to oligarchs, mobsters, and Putin-allies in Russian and former Soviet states while the real estate market was in freefall. That includes deals for people who were heavily involved in the Russian-invaded territory of Crimea. These cash-up-front transactions aren’t a sideline for Trump. They are the core of his business.  Buyers connected to Russia or former Soviet republics made 86 all-cash sales—totaling nearly $109 million—at 10 Trump-branded properties in South Florida and New York City, according to a new analysis shared with McClatchy. Many of them made purchases using shell companies designed to obscure their identities. Where previous reports have demonstrated that Russian oligarchs dragged Trump back from bankruptcy after his failures in Atlantic City, McClatchy’s list of cash-only transactions from Russia and former Soviet territories show how Trump was kept solvent and expanding even as the real estate market was crashing in 2008. While other companies were dependent on legitimate businesses working through mortgage companies that had suddenly tightened their belts, Trump was not. Instead, Trump was able to cheer from the sidelines of disaster, sheltered by money that continued to pour in through a pipeline he opened years before. And these transactions are just another indicator that contacts of Trump and his associates with Russian operatives in the run up to the 2016 election were not an aberration, but a continuation of business as usual. Adam Schiff: The size and scope of these cash purchases are deeply troubling as they can often signal money laundering activity, There have long been credible allegations of money laundering by the Trump Organization which, if true, would pose a real threat to the United States in the event that Russia were able to leverage evidence of illicit financial transactions against the president. In the months before the election. the Financial Times published multiple articles on how Donald Trump sold American real estate at premium prices to foreign nationals—many of them oligarchs from Russia and former Soviet states—as part of certainly appears to be an international money-laundering scheme. These articles were summarized on Daily Kos, and connected with other sources to show how Trump, deep in a fiscal hole following his largest and most comprehensive bankruptcy, was unable to secure financing to keep his company or his lifestyle alive from any normal, reputable source. So he did what he always does. He lied about it and took the Russian money.

Machine learning may be a game-changer for climate prediction

New research demonstrates that machine-learning techniques can be used to accurately represent clouds and their atmospheric heating and moistening, and better represent clouds in coarse resolution climate models, with the potential to narrow the range of climate prediction. This could be a major advance in accurate predictions of global warming in response to increased greenhouse gas concentrations that are essential for policy-makers (e.g. the Paris climate agreement).

Top contenders for Paul Stastny emerging

If and when John Tavares re-signs with the New York Islanders this offseason, there will be a lot of teams left in need of a center with few options to turn to. The trade route is an option, although a costly one when searching for a top-six pivot. Not many teams are openly shopping their top centers either. The draft is no help in a class largely devoid of pro-ready talent down the middle. The restricted free agent offer sheet has all but gone extinct. For those teams in need of center help, this leaves the free agent market as the most realistic choice and, behind Tavares, pickings are slim. Tyler Bozak, Riley Nash and Derek Ryan are all top-five scorers among free agent centers despite all being two-way focused forwards best suited for third-line roles. Joe Thornton, Valtteri Filppula and Tomas Plekanec are all well past their primes and their recent production proves it. There are simply very few good options.For these reasons, it is no surprise that teams are already lining up for the services of Paul St
