We're kicking out 50,000 Haitians in July of 2019 because Haiti is better now.

You know, on the one hand I get it. These people need to return home once it's all good and stuff. Makes sense. On the other hand...they've been here for almost a decade. Haiti certainly isn't recovered yet. And all of these revocations are being done at the same time - the circumstances don't seem to be driving the policy.

Just feels callous. Makes us look bad.

it was temporary. things with sunset provisions should be assumed to be ended. and haiti was a shitshow before the earthquake. i doubt it's much better but the roads probably aren't cracked in half anymore

in regards to your poll edit -- i question if there was an deliberate collusion between The Candidate and the Моско́вский Кремль. it is a difficult question to answer. there was certainly russian interference, and some people associated with the campaign possibly sought out or were used by russian agents but i think it's a bit unfair to label me a trumpbot because i do not agree with your assertion

In the very least...Kushner did something that he knows was bad. That's Trump's son in law. Fredo also did something that looks pretty bad. It's extremely hard for me to accept that these two either were utilized in this fashion by the KGB or knowingly worked with the KGB without Agent Orange knowing. That seems beyond plausible at this point. Look at how they're being utilized in the administration...it doesn't look like they were small potatoes to him during the campaign.

I don't buy it anymore. There's waaaaaaaay too much smoke. Kushner alone - he has revised his financial disclosure 36 times, has repeatedly revised his SF86 after being caught in lie after lie, and coincidentally doesn't appear in the limelight much at all.

That dude is all kinds of shady. Based on what Trump has trusted Kush with it's really f**k hard to accept that he trusts him enough to do what he's been tasked with but not enough to know that he was working with the Russians.

Gotta take off the blinders man. I know it's hard to accept and that it just seems so extreme and essentially unfathomable but it's all out there. And just because they did doesn't mean it was smart - we're seeing that play out in real time.

The GOP, if it ends up supporting this pick, is now an enemy of the US:

This would be legitimized electoral rigging far worse than the suppression we continue to see.

Ex is right, GOP is the enemy.
