While the horse-leech’s daughters that have replaced America’s soul will most certainly continue to cry out for more depravity, it’ll be truly chilling to see how much lower the Trump administration - on a day that featured a deep-faked video of a phantom assault disseminated by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders - will venture to go.

Claiming the asylum system to be “overwhelmed,” President Donald Trump will move to prohibit migrants who cross the United States-Mexico border illegally from claiming asylum, Bloomberg reports.

For those keeping score, asylum is the protection provided by sovereign nations to foreign nationals who seek refuge from persecution or well-founded fear of being persecuted for their race, religion, nationality or political opinion. Whether or not they had a word for it, the spirit of the law of asylum probably precluded indigenous residents of Plymouth, Mass., from leaving settlers to the birds.

In a joint statement, sycophants in arms Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker bemoaned, “our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it.”

When tracked by fiscal year, Trump’s first two fiscal years have seen fewer asylum seekers gain admission to the United States than Obama’s last year combined.

Under the proposed change to the rule, refugees seeking asylum would have to make their declarations at official ports of entry, a significant challenge for countless migrants trapped in the ever-so-orderly fight for their lives. From there, prospective refugees will be “be processed in a controlled, orderly, and lawful manner.”

It all sounds as if we’re living a few days after some sort of Kristallnacht we all somehow slept through.

“Claiming the asylum system to be “overwhelmed,” President Donald Trump will move to prohibit migrants who cross the United States-Mexico border illegally from claiming asylum, Bloomberg reports”

And I’ve been reading for several months they’ve closed the legit checkpoints or prevented access so that Migrants have to enter illegally, even with a valid asylum claim. And since they entered illegally, they may have all claims summarily denied.

The same admin who blocks lawyers from obtaining or just straight never takes cell numbers and other info from migrant parents that can reunite separated migrant parents and kids

The same admin that apparently deported some parents after fraudulently havibg them sign documents they did not understand, relinquishing their right to parental custody

The same administration that deported minors as young as 4, by themselves and didn’t bother to inform the family contacts it had to collect these children who spent months in the fucking cages and enclosures only to finally return to their (already dangerous) homes and see no friendly waiting faces. In the documented cases, thry were sent to their country’s shelters until their parents could be contacted. Some of their parents were past asylum/migration detainees, arriving with the kids in question and had provided contact info.

Stupidity and unnecessary cruelty are the watchwords of this abortion of justice, this cadre of narcissistic liars, grifters, hucksters and thieves.

Not to mention the white supremacists in, and advising this admin, hell bent on creating new white serf race by killing education, sex education, clinics that perform abortion availability, and getting insurance companies to drop birth control coverage. People like Stephen Miller who’s family survived one Holocaust, only for him to attempt to slowly engineer another.
