Exactly one week after announcing plans to overhaul the U.S. asylum process to punitively bar certain migrants from claiming asylum, President Donald Trump made it official on Thursday, altering the already sadistic rules by which asylum seekers can—and cannot—enter the U.S.

As you may know, the industry of bodegas and mom-and-pop corner shops has been on a steady decline in face of the rising costs of rent and the competition of grocery delivery companies like FreshDirect.

A leader’s greatness (or incompetence) is not measured by how he treats the rich and powerful, but by how he looks after and protects the most vulnerable. In President Donald Trump’s case, he will be remembered for bullying 800,000 “Dreamers,” threatening to send them back to countries many of them aren’t even familiar with.

The same man who said he had a “great heart” when it comes to the...
