The MPP must be made D.O.A.


Trump is a lawless S.O.B. He favors litigating everything. If for no other reason, he depends on the stalling of justice. It gives the crime time to settle down, and it gives him more time to buy off witnesses and perhaps officials.


U.S. asylum officers filed a federal court brief demanding an end to President Donald Trump’s so-called “Remain in Mexico” policy under which asylum seekers have been turned away at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Good news. Migrants from south of the border have been migrating across the Americas before the European invasion and settler colonialism. This is their turf. Many parts of the US southwest were in fact part of Mexico and the war with Mexico was precipitated by the US enslavers deliberately infiltrating the norther part of Mexico (Texas) to steal more land from the indigenes to force more African slaves to grow cotton there. Mexico had codified anti-slavery in their laws. Hell of a difference, no?
