Following the directions, they turned into a one-way dirt road with two well-worn tire ruts leading to a ramshackle farmhouse next to which there was a gravel parking area in which about a dozen cars and pick-ups were parked. A teen age boy waved them into a spot and pointed to the farmhouse door. Once inside, they found themselves among a bunch of people who from their attire, obviously didn’t have anything to do with farming. A bald middle-aged man, seated at a table, greeted them and checked off Miltie’s name from a list before him.
Immigration - Zero Tolerance - Profound Ignorance
The separation of children from such parents who enter the country illegally in order to seek asylum as well as children of legal asylum seekers who are being held while their requests for asylum are being processed is an act which will blacken American history permanently.
"Making America Great Again"
And if any of those children fail to be re-united with their parents, regardless of whether or not asylum is granted, those Americans who permitted it to happen, including the President, should be treated as the criminal child-snatchers they are. The profound ignorance of the *P.O.S. occupying the White House, along with his arrogance, permits this to happen as some in government proceed to follow his direction in defiance of our legal system. Ignorance, even as profound as that of the President, is not a legal defense.
Surprise Upset in NYC Primary and What it Means
Could this leftward, socialist, Democratic direction be the real answer to the problem Democrats face?
Ocasio-Cortez is unlike the “Republican-lite” Democratic candidates running outside of historic Democratic urban bastions. She doesn't need an "independent middle" from which to seek votes. Most Democratic activists probably quietly agree with her politically but feel that committing the party to the kind of programs she endorses will not be a winning strategy nationally this year nor in 2020. But, on the other hand, remaining to her right may have the same disastrous results for the Democratic Party as it did in 2016. That is the Democratic dilemma.
So, should Democrats be honest with themselves and swing leftward? (More about this, and the damage a third party candidate would have in this age of polarization will appear in the next few postings. These will be the the determining issues in the 2018 and 2020 elections.)
