COUNTDOWN: We will continue to be plagued with this racist, bumbling, and chaotic misadministration for another 941 days…
Happy start of a new week, everyone. The plight of refugees has become the latest heated political debate in this country ever since it became known that Presi-dunce Donald Chump has instituted a policy whereby would-be immigrant parents are being forcibly separated at our southern border from their children. People have been rightly horrified to learn that these innocent young children are being put into internment camps, with no real or believable assurance that the proper child will ever be reunited with the proper parent, as a number of these parents were being immediately deported – without their children! Chump and his pathetic rxcuse for an Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, have devised this most evil and diabolical plan as a way to prevent attempts at illegal immigration, and most of the public is up in arms over it.
In today’s magnificent example, our master podcaster Burr Deming contrasts this current policy with the traditional one his great-grandmother used to enter our country many decades ago.
Burr relates,“According to “Merit Rules” proposed by the Trump administration she would have been turned away. The ideal immigrant, the one who would be pushed to the head of the line, would be this:
…a 26- to 31-year-old with a US-based doctorate or professional degree, who speaks nearly perfect English and who has a salary offer that’s three times as high as the median income where they are.
My grandmother had no marketable skills. She did not speak English at all. Not to put too fine a point on it, she did not have a US-based doctorate or professional degree.
As I understand it, she would be sent back today, even if she applied for asylum. Rules are tightening, even for cases of life-threatening domestic violence. How would mere forced marriage be considered?”
