Lev Parnas, the Rudy Giuliani associate who allegedly aided digging up dirt on President Trump’s political enemies, is set to appear on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show on Wednesday night, a move that would make any sensible lawyer want to piss themselves. And that’s...

Conservatives love to wax poetic about the glory of the Constitution, but what they love even more is to ignore the parts they don’t like and call it patriotism. Case in point: Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former Trump press secretary and current Fox News talking head...

Joe Biden Still Doesn't Know How to Talk About Deportation

Joe Biden Still Doesn't Know How to Talk About Deportation

Former Vice President Joe Biden is reluctant to admit that the Obama administration wasn’t spotless. The administration’s record of deportation, in particular, has already come to mar the shiny sheen of Obama’s legacy, and is emphasized by the Trump administration’s further villainization of immigrants, asylum seekers, and the undocumented. Yet Biden fails to realize that simply not being...

Scott Warren, the Activist Who Left Water for Migrants in Arizona, Was Acquitted

Scott Warren, a humanitarian activist with the group No More Deaths in Arizona and low-key Beto O’Rourke lookalike, was acquitted Wednesday for the second time on charges that he illegally harbored undocumented migrants in the desert. In both trials (the first was declared a mistrial in June 2019), Warren was accused of two felony counts. After the first mistrial, prosecutors dismissed a...

Professional Troll Awarded Lifetime Appointment By Senate

Professional Troll Awarded Lifetime Appointment By Senate

On Thursday, the Senate confirmed Trump goon Steven Menashi to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court in a 51-41 vote partisan split. Every Republican present, except Sen. Susan Collins, voted for Menachi, a controversial and radical White House lawyer who was notably evasive during his confirmation hearings.

His confirmation is notable for a few reasons: with the addition of Menashi, Trump has now...

Jared Kushner Has Another Extremely Dumb Idea—If You Can Believe It

Jared Kushner Has Another Extremely Dumb Idea—If You Can Believe It

Jared Kushner is a man who has many ideas, along with the limp, damp demeanor of a wilting head of lettuce. Unfortunately for him, his ideas are often incredibly dumb and laughably ineffective. Take, for example, his latest great idea—livestreaming the building of Donald Trump’s wall on the U.S-Mexico border, in an effort to build public support for an idea that is not only extremely...

DACA Recipients Know Their Fight Goes Beyond The Supreme Court

DACA Recipients Know Their Fight Goes Beyond The Supreme Court

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was always meant to be a temporary solution. An executive order signed by President Obama in 2012, it was crafted only after sustained political pressure by young undocumented immigrants made action necessary, in the face of a Republican-controlled Congress unwilling to pass even the mildest of legislative fixes. DACA was a victory, but an...

Kirstjen Nielsen Is Trying to Reinvent Herself as a Woman Who 'Spoke Truth to Power'

On Wednesday, former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was for some reason given a platform to speak at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit. And predictably, the woman who oversaw the Trump administration’s (ongoing) efforts to separate families at the border used her time as an opportunity to defend herself and claim to be someone who—and please take a deep breath here—“spoke...

Trump Administration Will Cap Refugee Acceptance at Just 18,000

Trump Administration Will Cap Refugee Acceptance at Just 18,000

The State Department has announced that President Trump will slash the number of refugees the U.S. admits to just 18,000 in the next year, down from the current cap of 30,000.

In 2016, then-President Barack Obama said that the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. should be 110,000, much higher than the current cap. But the Trump administration has predictably decided instead to slash the...

Trump Administration Wants to Detain Migrant Children Indefinitely

Trump Administration Wants to Detain Migrant Children Indefinitely

Since 1997, the Flores Settlement Agreement—named after a 15-year-old El Salvadorian refugee who endured brutish conditions while she was detained in U.S. custody in the 1980s—has been the bedrock for improved immigration standards in the United States. On Wednesday, the Trump administration presented a plan that they hope wipes away those regulations for good.

The Lingering Aftermath of an ICE Raid

The Lingering Aftermath of an ICE Raid

Since the agency’s creation post-9/11, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials have always made it clear that their priority is to enforce cruelty. During last Wednesday’s ICE raids on seven poultry plants in Mississippi, that mission was on full display—in the form of weeping children separated from their parents and distraught family members frantically trying to locate their...

Terrible Asshole Would Like to Update "The New Colossus"

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of Citizenship and Immigration Services and longtime fucker , apparently thinks the poem on the Statue of Liberty that welcomes immigrants to America’s shores could use a little update.

The Emma Lazarus poem, “The New Colossus,” has been mounted at the base of the Statue of Liberty since 1903. It famously reads, in part:

The Theater of ICE

On Wednesday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted a series of raids across Mississippi that resulted in the arrest of 680 people . It was brutal spectacle by design, almost cinematic—a swarm of 600 agents, a fleet of buses rolling across the state, a military hangar commissioned to serve as a makeshift processing facility. Raids are a means of mass-arrest and they are also state...
