    “We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections. Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!”

    “Federal immigration courts faced a backlog of more than 700,000 cases in May, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, at Syracuse University. In some courts, the average wait for an immigration hearing was over 1,400 days; some hearings are being scheduled beyond 2021 before an available slot on the docket is found.
    …Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said the military is preparing to shelter as many as 20,000 migrant children on four bases: Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas; Fort Bliss in El Paso; Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, Tex.; and Dyess Air Force Base near Abilene, Tex. It was not immediately clear on Friday if the parents could also be housed there.” https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/22/us/politics/donald-trump-immigration-midterms.html

    Trump says illegal immigrants should be deported with ‘no judges or court cases’ (Reuters 6/24/18) https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-immigration-trump/trump-says-illegal-immigrants-should-be-deported-with-no-judges-or-court-cases-idUSKBN1JK0OL His proposal drew immediate criticism from legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates who said it would violate the U.S. Constitution’s due process provision, which applies to citizens and non-citizens alike.

      “Trump officials pledge to reunite families amid border chaos” (Associated Press 6/24/18) https://wtop.com/national/2018/06/trump-administration-says-it-knows-location-of-all-children/
      See Department of Health and Human Services zero-tolerance prosecution and family reunification fact sheet: http://apne.ws/qjYtmJR
      A parent or guardian trying to determine if a child is in the custody of HHS should contact the Office of Refugee Resettlement National Call Center at 1-800-203-7001, or via email information@ORRNCC.com. Information will be collected and sent to an HHS-funded facility where a minor is located. (…it’s unclear whether detained parents have access to computers to send an email, or how their phone systems work to call out. Attorneys at the border have said they have been frantically trying to locate information about the children on behalf of their clients).

    President Trump on Saturday claimed he never pushed congressional Republicans to pass either of the two immigration bills the House considered in recent days. But only three days earlier, he urged Republicans to pass a GOP compromise bill on immigration in an all-caps tweet. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-immigration-tweets-today-goodlatte-1-2-house-republicans-2018-06-29/ The Republicans’ bill failed Wednesday, with more than 100 Republicans voting against it.

    Ex-Republican Operative Steve Schmidt: ‘The Party of Trump Must Be Obliterated. Annihilated. Destroyed’ (Rolling Stone 6/26/18) https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/ex-republican-operative-steve-schmidt-the-party-of-trump-must-be-obliterated-annihilated-destroyed-667008/ “Steve Schmidt has worked at the highest levels of Republican politics. He helped run George W. Bush’s 2004 presidential campaign and oversaw the confirmations of Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito. He led Sen. John McCain’s ’08 presidential bid and helped introduce Sarah Palin to the world. The American Association of Political Consultants once named him its “GOP Campaign Manager of the Year.”
    But today, Schmidt is finished with the Republican Party. He renounced his membership last week in a series of withering tweets that quickly went viral. Under Trump, he wrote, the party had become “corrupt, indecent, and immoral.” With the exception of a select few, the GOP was “filled with feckless cowards who disgrace and dishonor the legacies of the party’s greatest leaders.” He pointed to the Trump administration’s family separation policy and use of detention centers for young immigrant children – “internment camps for babies” – and the refusal of House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to repudiate the president.”
