Jake Johnson, staff writer

Attorney General William Barr late Tuesday reversed a previous Justice Department ruling that allowed asylum seekers to be released on bond, a move immigrant rights groups said could lead to the indefinite detention of thousands of immigrants.

This policy could easily be right out of Orwell.

The US government has become the wicked and inhumane government. No longer ‘the melting pot of the world’, we are now the world’s leading prison system.

I wonder who will get the 100s of millions to do so? Wonder who pays for it? Another example of money before humanity.

quite obvious that the insane have taken over the asylum, the greedy, criminally insane! no amount of punishment would be enough for these “so called” people.

His confirmation hearing should have told us that he was a slippery slimy fat man. His history was and is what he is. A closeted; misogynistic, xenophobic, homophobic white racist.

How would these people in the mid-west feel if they were detained indefinitely because they had to flee their homes from the flooding?
Put them in a camp surrounded by barbed wire (for their protection).

And… it is right out of Himmler.
These policies are spawned by the unholy coupling of xenophobia and greed.

“Indefinite Detention” means $$$$$$$ for GEO Group, CoreCivic, and their heartless
shareholders!

I hope no one kidnaps Barron Trump. But, with his father kidnapping hundreds or thousands of children it seems like a real possibility. I do hope the Secret Service does provide Extra Protection for the young mr. Trump since his father is out of control and may cause harm to his own son by way of a revenge kidnapping.

White America has to get serious about understanding that we cannot hold back the tide of America becoming a nation of a shared color, religion, creed, and immigrated-integrated- and homogeneous community.
Mealouts would say, but for those in ivory towers, we are all Americans.
