Trump now deporting kids being treated for cancer!

❝ When you’ve already separated families, thrown children in cages, and held them in conditions that “could be compared to torture facilities,” it’s a bit of a challenge to come up with your next act. Evil takes creativity, and once you’ve forced migrant kids to go weeks without a shower or change of clothes and fed them expired food, it’s tough to continue nailing those Hitler comparisons. Somehow, though, the Trump administration always rises to the occasion…

❝ Severely ill immigrants, including children with cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other grave conditions, are facing deportation under a change in Trump administration policy that immigration advocates are calling cruel and inhumane.

… The program granted stays of deportation in two-year increments and didn’t promise immigrants a future in the United States, just access to care in a time of need, said Dr. Sarah L. Kimball…Boston Medical Center…

❝ …The outrages now come with such regularity that each tends to distract from the last. But it’s important to protest not just these changes, but also their overriding intent: to remove all vestiges of compassion from the immigration system and make life as miserable as possible for immigrant families. Can this administration sink any lower than threatening to deport kids with cancer?

Once again, I see no need whatsoever to separate the fools who continue to support this thug – and the scumbag, himself. We all see what his time in office contributes to diminishing human rights, human dignity. He doesn’t care. I see no reason to believe those who support this fake president and his policies are any different.

No Grandstanding — Confederate monuments removed from Baltimore overnight

❝ Confederate statues in Baltimore were removed from their bases overnight by city contractors, who used heavy machinery to load them onto flat bed trucks and haul them away — an abrupt end to more than a year of indecision on what to do with the memorials.

Mayor Catherine Pugh, who made the decision Tuesday morning to remove the monuments overnight, watched in person as the four statues linked to the Confederacy were torn from their pedestals.

…The mayor said. “There was enough grandstanding, enough speeches being made. Get it done.”

❝ The Baltimore City Council had unanimously passed a resolution this week calling for their removal amid a renewed national conversation following a deadly terrorist attack by a white supremacist at a rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday…

❝ Protesters, who held a rally at the Robert E. Lee-“Stonewall” Jackson Monument at Wyman Park Dell near Johns Hopkins University Sunday, had pledged to tear down that statue themselves Wednesday night if the city didn’t…

“It’s done,” Pugh said Wednesday morning. “They needed to come down. My concern is for the safety and security of our people. We moved as quickly as we could…I did not want to endanger people in my own city.”

❝ The city is still deciding what to do with the removed statues, Pugh said, and she did not reveal where they had been taken in the meantime.

The only “polite” suggestion I can come up with is to melt them down, roll the lumps into sheet metal, stamp out commemorative coins for everyone from the brave soldiers who fought against Confederate separatists – and the traitors who led them – to modern-day civil rights leaders and activists.
