Trump judge smacks Trump down on immigration

Judge overturns Trump border rule requiring immigrants to first claim asylum in another country

Under the rule, the U.S. could refuse to consider a request for asylum from anyone who failed to apply for it after leaving home but before reaching the U.S.

A federal court Tuesday night upheld a challenge to the Trump administration's asylum restrictions, specifically a 2019 rule that requires seekers to ask for asylum closer to home.

U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Washington, D.C., ruled in favor of immigrant nonprofits and asylum-seekers who argued that the rule known as the "third-country asylum rule," which was jointly published by the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security, violated the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Kelly, who was appointed to the federal bench by President Donald Trump in 2017, agreed that in adopting the policy, the administration did not abide by the federal Administrative Procedure Act, or APA, which requires that Americans be given enough time and opportunity to weigh in on such rule changes.

The Immigration and Nationality Act, the judge argued, generally allows anyone who has made it to U.S. soil to apply for asylum, with some exceptions, including for those with criminal records.

"There are many circumstances in which courts appropriately defer to the national security judgments of the Executive," Kelly wrote. "But determining the scope of an APA exception is not one of them."

In Trump's America, swastikas are now just a little joke among friends

Ohio Little Caesars delivers pizza with pepperoni swastika

An Ohio couple ordered a pizza and was horrified to open the box to find its pepperoni arranged as a swastika, according to a report.

Jason Laska said he had picked up the pie Saturday night from a Little Caesars shop in Brook Park and brought it home, WJW-TV reported.
...
The couple called the pizza joint, which had just closed, to complain and received a response the following day from the manager.

“[The employees] told him that it was supposed to be an internal joke that they were playing on each other and the other employee, and the pizza was never intended to go out,” Laska said.

The manager told them that employees involved were let go, but the couple said they never plan to return to the store.
...
Little Caesars confirmed in a statement that the chain fired the employees involved in the offensive incident.

This may be what white fragility and white fear looks like but it’s also what white privilege and white power looks like.
