D2S's  WH would have to have ethics in the first place for it to be a problem.

That's the kind of briefing DOJ gives (or FBI, DEA,etc.) The WH is so desperate for good news they're stealing the thunder from other agencies now.

The most vicious and deadly gang in America is the one occupying the Executive Branch right now.

MS 13 and other Latin criminal gangs are no joke, and the Justice Department is right to focus on fighting them- and *all*  criminal gangs.

/I hope they focus on violent criminals and not low level drug offenders.

They won't. They are using Latin gang violence as an excuse to crack down on all immigration from Latin America.

That's how it work with Trump everything good is because he hires the best people and everything bad is because they betrayed him.

"The Department of Justice is committed to making America safe again through fundamental law enforcement principles and will not hesitate to speak out in any venue about policies that endanger neighborhoods and communities around the country," Flores told NPR.

The problem is that you (and DEA) keep using enforcement policies that endanger neighborhoods and communities, Director.

Today I feel like our president watched most of Clear and Present Danger (except, of course, the downfall of the administration and the other corrupt gov't officials at the end) and thought "Hey, he seems like a really powerful, likeable president to the American people. What can I do to be just like him? I have to be careful though, lately those pesky farkers have been calling me out and I don't want to be brought up on the high crime of plagiarizing a movie inspired by a Clancey book, so I'll change a detail or two and keep everything sorta domestic."

Someone should tell Trump there is a slur for Latinos that implies that they are adept at negotiating water, just to see if he suggests building a wall along the coastline.

They won't. They are using Latin gang violence as an excuse to crack down on all immigration from Latin America.


And non criminals are reporting less crimes for fear of being deported.  MS13 thanks you, DT.
 
2017-07-28 12:23:41 PM  
This strikes me as a typically ham-fisted way for D2S to try to neutralize the stories about his immigration policies emboldening M13 members.  The idea is that they now feel free to terrorize the immigrant community further, as the victims are hesitant to contact authorities for fear of deportation.

Since he seems to run afoul of it on a regular basis, perhaps trump should try and repeal the Law of Unintended Consequences.

Photos of people...what does it prove?  There's a difference between communicating due to necessity and corruption.   You know there is, you'll pretend there isn't, or say there was some sort of unethical collusion, but you won't have any proof.

I'm sure that ICE dude from yesterday, who showed a calm and measured response to anyone questioning his statements, will respond to this with insight and depth.

They're no joke, but they are a tiny percentage of our problems. And there is no evidence they are worse than our home-grown gangs. Hell, Trump has a higher civilian kill rate than all the gangs in this country. Trump just wants you to be extra terrified of brown gang members with accents because you'll be too scared to think.

It works on stupid white people. ie, Republicans. It works over and over again. Christ, those people are so easy to play it should be embarrassing to them. Then again, they're stupid, so it probably isn't.
