This Is America Under Donald Trump And Republicans Full Control. A 10 Year Old Child Just Out Of Emergency Surgery Taken Into Custody By US Immigration For Deportation.

The days of America’s shining shore for the poor, needy, sick and forgotten are closing fast and furious under the control of Anti-Human Donald Trump and Unpatriotic Republicans. The Statue Of Liberty Fires are gone and only the Ember remains;

 

Statue Of Liberty Poem

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

 

{NYT}”One of the newest arrivals this week at the Baptist Children’s Home Ministries facility for child migrants in San Antonio, Tex., is 10 years old.

 

She has cerebral palsy. Her name is Rosa Maria Hernandez, and she does not understand why, days after undergoing emergency gallbladder surgery, she has not yet seen her mother, even though they are less than a three-hour drive apart.

 

“Do I get to go home tomorrow?” she asked her mother on Wednesday evening, when they spoke over FaceTime.

“I told her that she was only there because she was recovering, and once she was recovered, then she could come with me,” recalled her mother, Felipa de la Cruz, speaking in Spanish.

“O.K., Mommy.”

The truth is that Ms. de la Cruz does not know when her daughter will be released.

 

They live in the border town of Laredo illegally, and when Ms. de la Cruz sent Rosa Maria to Corpus Christi for the surgery early Tuesday, the girl’s ambulance was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint. After agents learned the girl was an undocumented immigrant, they followed her to the hospital and guarded her room. When she was discharged, the agents took her to the shelter, which houses juveniles in immigration custody.

 

Checkpoints Isolate Many Immigrants in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley NOV. 22, 2015

 

“It’s the period when she needs me the most,” said Ms. de la Cruz, who cannot visit her daughter because she, too, could be arrested at a checkpoint. “I can’t help her. When I start to think about her, I start to get sad.”

 

In a year when President Trump’s hard line on illegal immigration has driven the number of immigration arrests up by more than 40 percent, Rosa Maria’s case has sped straight to the heart of the immigration-debate maelstrom.”

Donald Trump’s Phantasmagoric Rationales And Internecine Policies Enabled By Corrupt Republicans And Propelled By Uninformed Ignorant Supporters, Are Dragging America Down Into Deeper And Deeper Unforgiving Waters:

Whether you are a Politician or a Civilian, if you support what Donald Trump is doing to the United States, then you cannot call yourself American.

 

“America is great because America is good.” [Hillary Clinton]

 

Donald Trump is not a Republican, Democrat Or Independent; Trump is just 305 lbs of deteriorating, defunct flesh, caught in a “Human Body.” Trump is so intertwined and entwined with Vladimir Putin and Russia, every action Trump takes as President is denigrating America to fall further away from any credibility and totally wreck what makes America great – “Democracy.”

 

Signing Executive Orders that takes America back to the days of poisonous Air, Water and a damaging environment isn’t making America Great Again; it is making America obsolete and defunct. We know this factually because when China is investing hundreds of billions of dollars into clean energy and Trump is taking America back into a lost cause – “Coal and Contamination,” why can’t the Republicans in control of Congress stop the madness. It seems self evident that all Congressional Republicans are not Corrupt and Bad, but the Majority, including Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, they are on the same level of being despicable as Lying, Swindling, Thieving, Hypocritical Trump.

 

Policies such as the Twice Failed Travel Ban takes America back to sorry memories reminding us and the world that America was built on two Monumental Crimes; “The Genocide of 120 Million Native Americans and the Enslavement of Blacks.”

 

Continually taking the side of the world’s most demoralized Dictator, Killer and Fraud, Vladimir Putin against Trump’s own Country, I do not believe the English language possess adequate words to describe that degree of Treason.

 

Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Devin Nunes and other Republicans that are in a criminal conspiracy protecting Donald Trump from a Treasonous Investigation, leaves you no other choice but to believe, these people are up to their necks in Treason and Debauchery, no different than Donald Trump.

 

If the 2016 Treasonous, Fraudulent Election isn’t properly adjudicated, America’s Credibility and Democracy will be lost forever! Legally, do what you must and do what you can to bring about justice for all Americans and the world – “Stop Corrupt Donald Trump and his Enablers!”

“Trump’s ‘Deportation Force’ Prepares an Assault on American Values.” Supporters Of Trump And His Policies Are Supporting The Demise Of America, Period!

Posted in United States with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2017 by sheriffali

[NYT] “The homeland security secretary, John Kelly, issued a remarkable pair of memos on Tuesday. They are the battle plan for the “deportation force” President Trump promised in the campaign.

 

They are remarkable for how completely they turn sensible immigration policies upside down and backward. For how they seek to make the deportation machinery more extreme and frightening (and expensive), to the detriment of deeply held American values.

 

A quick flashback: The Obama administration recognized that millions of unauthorized immigrants, especially those with citizen children and strong ties to their communities and this country, deserved a chance to stay and get right with the law. It tried to focus on deporting dangerous criminals, national-security threats and recent border crossers.

 

Mr. Kelly has swept away those notions. He makes practically every deportable person a deportation priority. He wants everybody, starting with those who have been convicted of any crime, no matter how petty or old. Proportionality, discretion, the idea that some convictions are unjust, the principles behind criminal-justice reform — these concepts do not apply.

 

The targets now don’t even have to be criminals. They could simply have been accused of a crime (that is, still presumed “innocent”) or have done something that makes an immigration agent believe that they might possibly face charges.”

 

Stand up against and Resist Donald Trump and the Fraudulent Republicans in Congress.  They are literally wrecking 240 years of America’s Sacrifices and Greatness. Do your part!

Republican Appointed Federal Judge James Robart Suspends Trump’s Travel Ban Order Nationwide Friday February 3, 2017

“In Donald Trump’s Two Weeks As President The Single Most Significant “Thing” Trump Has Proven Is That He Is An Obnoxious Fool; Uninformed, Ignorant, With A 6th Grade Education That Has No Comprehension Of The Duties Of The Presidency And How World Governance Works.” [Sheriff Ali]

 

United States Customs And Border Protection Informed All Airlines To Resume Normal Services. [Reuters]

 

[WAPO] “A federal judge in Washington State on Friday temporarily blocked enforcement of President Trump’s controversial ban on entry to the United States, and airlines planned to begin allowing passengers from banned countries to board, according to a person familiar with the matter.

 

Following the ruling, government authorities immediately began communicating with airlines and taking steps that would allow travel by those previously barred from doing so, according to a U.S. official. At the same time, though, the White House said in a statement that the Justice Department would “at the earliest possible time” file for an emergency stay of the “outrageous” ruling from the judge. Minutes later, it issued a similar statement omitting the word “outrageous.”

 

“The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people,” the White House said.

 

The federal judge’s ruling, which was broader than similar ones before it, set up a high-stakes legal confrontation between the new president and the judicial branch over his temporary ban on entry by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries as well as refugees. In his opinion, U.S. District Judge James L. Robart wrote that “fundamental” to the court’s work was “a vigilant recognition that it is but one of three equal branches of our federal government.”

 

“The court concludes that the circumstances brought before it today are such that it must intervene to fulfill its constitutional role in our tripart government,” he wrote.”

Without Any Fanfare Mexico’s Supreme Court Legalizes Sam Sex Marriage! Why Do SCOTUS Create So Much Commotion That Affects The Lives Of The American People?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2015 by sheriffali

MEXICO CITY — His church turned him away, his family discouraged him from a public fight and the government of the state where he lives vowed it would never happen.

 

But it did. Hiram Gonzalez married his boyfriend, Severiano Chavez, last year in the northern state of Chihuahua, which, like most Mexican states, technically allows marriage only between a man and a woman.

 

Mr. Gonzalez and dozens of other gay couples in recent months have, however, found a powerful ally: Mexico’s Supreme Court.

 

In ruling after ruling, the court has said that state laws restricting marriage to heterosexuals are discriminatory. Though the decisions have been made to little public fanfare, they have had the effect of legalizing gay marriage in Mexico without enshrining it in law.

 

“When I heard the judge pronounce us legally married, I burst into tears,” said Mr. Gonzalez, 41. Like nearly all same-sex couples marrying in Mexico, he and his partner needed a court order in order to exchange vows.

 

As the United States awaits a landmark decision on gay marriage by the Supreme Court, the Mexican court’s rulings have added the country to a slowly growing list of Latin American nations permitting same-sex unions.

 

Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil already allow same-sex marriage. Chile plans to recognize same-sex civil unions this year; Ecuador approved civil unions in April; and Colombia grants same-sex couples many of the same rights extended to heterosexual married couples.

 

“It’s a huge change from where things were 10 years ago,” said Jason Pierceson, a professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield who studies gay marriage trends in Latin America.

 

The shift in Mexico, the second-largest country in Latin America after Brazil, is the product of a legal strategy that advocates used to bypass state legislatures, which have shown little inclination, and often hostility, to legalizing gay marriage.

 

In 2009, Mexico City, a federal district and large liberal island in this socially conservative country, legalized gay marriage — a first in Latin America. There have been 5,297 same-sex weddings here since then, some of them couples coming to the city from other states.

Nancy Reagan Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton For President Is Factual. This Was Confirmed By Nancy’s Son Ron Reagan On The History Channel.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2015 by sheriffali

Last week, during a promotional press conference for The History Channel’s upcoming series “First Ladies in Their Own Words,” series’ host Ron Reagan shared clips of his interviews with all living former First Ladies of the United States. In a brief video clip with his mother Nancy Reagan, she offered her endorsement of Hillary Clinton as President saying,

 

“The time for a woman to serve as our President has come – really, now is the time – and I think the idea of having a former First Lady as the leader of the free world is really quite a marvelous notion. I want Hillary to win. Even though I admire two of the current potential Republican nominees, I have no interest in seeing either of them lead this country.”

 

“First Ladies in Their Own Words” is the brainchild of Presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and Ron Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan. Broadcast in chronological order of their husbands’ terms in office, Goodwin and Reagan hope the series will show the importance of our First Ladies as a reflection of the culture of the nation during their years in the White House.

 

Besides interviews about family life in the White House and the First Lady’s social importance in the nation, “First Ladies in Their Own Words” will focus on four particular issues and how each has evolved over the last 40 years. Those issues – Women’s Rights, Healthcare, Education and LGBT Rights – reveal a dynamic shift in what Americans think about what means to be “American.” As Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin notes in the first episode, “The Founding Mothers of this country knew that women in Colonial America would never get to shape the politics of the country at that time, but they did know that had the more important job of shaping the men who shaped the country.”

 

Ron Reagan was in his twenties when his father sat in the Oval Office and was clearly aware of what his mother’s job was as First Lady. “Hopefully, this program can show that no matter how divisive the nation was during the Presidency, the First Ladies of this nation knew their job was to soften the rhetoric by loving all Americans equally – just like a mother would.”

 

Asked about his mother’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Reagan thought it showed how little America actually knew about the woman behind the Republican icon. “She wants people to know that the First Ladies are tight. They get together once a year to support each other. In fact, Hillary had no interest in running until both Laura and Barbara Bush cornered her at their get-together in May 2013 and talked her into at least thinking about it! So, in a sense, if Mrs. Clinton does run and win, you can blame the Bush family.”

 

“First Ladies in Their Own Words” is not yet scheduled on The History Channel, but is expected to begin during the fall television season. Check local listings for dates and times.
