      • Something else from that townhall.com site that caught my attention.
        Trump Administration Sets Up Judicial Showdown: They're Going To Hold Migrant Children Indefinitely

        The Trump administration announced a new rule Thursday that would allow immigrant children with their parents to be held in detention indefinitely, upending a ban on indefinite detention that has been in place for 20 years.

        The rule, proposed by the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, goes into effect in 60 days and will allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to keep children with their mothers in detention facilities while their cases for asylum play out in court.

        A DHS official speaking on the condition of anonymity said the purpose of the rulemaking is to terminate the 1997 Flores settlement agreement that said children could not be held in detention longer than 20 days. The result may mean the issue is taken to appellate courts or even the Supreme Court.

        Officials argue that the rulemaking is legal because they will be holding children in ICE facilities that have been evaluated by third parties.

        • I think Trump, ICE officials and anyone else who greenlights this needs to be put on trial for crimes against humanity. Life sentences mandatory. ICE doesn't just need to be disbanded. Its agents need to be arrested and tried.

          ICE is a terrorist organization masquerading as law enforcement.

          • I'm not an HR person, but I think it's a bad sign when an employee writes a poison pen letter calling you a brain dead *******, and you can't narrow it down to 100 people...

              Kamala Harris (who should consider a run in 2020) is making quite a name for herself. She directly questioned Kavanaugh on his ties to the Kasowitz law firm and a meeting that occurred about the Mueller investigation.

              Kavanaugh had difficulty answering the question and finally denied it days later.

              I'm having difficulty believing that he isn't compromised integrity wise. There is something very corrupt about this man and the fact he could made a Supreme Court justice is troubling.

              ​​​​​This could undermine the entire justice system in the country when someone like Kavanaugh is clearly tied to this deeply corrupt and criminal administration. No matter the result of these hearings, Trump will go down and it won't be pretty. While he could subvert justice federally, he can't do **** if a state goes after him for crimes.

                  I see. You don't have an intelligent response, so instead you argue against a caricature. That will convince many idiots. Good for you.

                    The universal healthcare systems that practically all western nations except the USA have implemented prove the opposite

                      No. You just have more efficient death panels.

                      And yet they still have longer life expectancy. And a fraction of the health care costs.

                    • Oh those geniuses that the Ds elected to represent them think that using your power as a Congressman or woman to disrupt the hearing of a perfectly qualified person is civil disobedience. I guess that figures since they have no idea what racism is and a lot of other stuff.

                          Completely unqualified corrupt judge who shouldn't be anywhere near the Supreme Court. You are an ass. **** off already.

                            Try actually winning. Not losing by three million votes. Enjoy it because 2016 will be the last one you "win" in a long ass time.

                            More republican voters are dying off and you successfully angered a sleeping giant in younger generations.

                              This lifetime position for supreme judges is really unfortunate as, unless the Democrats manage to impeach Kavanaugh or have the nomination/voting be declared void, he will most likely be supreme judge for decades to come. (all under the assumption that the vote succeeds ... but I have no doubts that all republicans will vote pro Kavanaugh, no matter what dirt upon Kavanaugh will be uncovered ... their supreme leader, Donnie, want Kavanaugh to protect him from the Mueller investigation, and his republican minions obey)
