Ms. Schaaf had "boldly supported illegality," Mr. Sessions said, calling her actions "an embarrassment to the proud state of California."
"So here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you, how dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda?" he said.


"Mr Sessions, paging Mr Sessions. Radical illegality alert in the White House. Please check your twitter."

What do these idiots mean by open borders? Because they seem to be implying it means tearing out the turnstiles, throwing down a welcome mat and waving anybody and everybody in to the US. Except that they use that phrase for people who do nothing of the kind. And nobody calls them on it. Pisses me off it does.

Libby Schaaf is the best Mayor Oakland has had in quite some time now and I thought her heads up about ICE raids in the area was commendable

Unlike other paces, California relies upon its Migrant labor and doesn't have issues with that. It's these racist assholes who live in impoverished States with 2nd world living conditions 1,000+ miles away that seem to have a problem

If anything comes out of the Trump Administration, I hope to god it's the secession of California and other like minded States. Frankly I'm farking sick and tired of the greedy backward idiot fascists that control the US Government and these slack-jawed cretins that vote for them who are hell bent on preventing us from having a socialist Utopia complete with Free Health Care, Education and Universal Basic Income. It's clear WE DO NOT share any values in common and it's time we split for once and for all

mentula: conservatives like states' rights until they don't.

It's simple.  They love states' rights when states take away freedoms-- restricting abortion, keeping undesirables from voting, etc.  They hate states' rights when states try to give people more freedom--  allowing abortion, legal weed, etc.

Short answer: conservatives hate freedom.

How many ICE agents were killed because of her negligence? I see there were a couple who were ambushed in Mexico in 2011. She should feel ashamed.

Hey, Jeff: the President's son-in-law is conducting private business (obtaining loans for his personal business) inside the White House and using his position in the White House to blockade Qatar (when they wouldn't invest in his personal business).

How about you look into that?

My grandmother came from Mexico with her parents when she was 12.
During WWII, she was a riveter (One of the Rosie's) and years later died from Cancer.
She gave her life for this country.
And contributed much more than Sessions, Trump and their bigoted base of a$$holes.

They're attempting to demonize immigration, just like they did ACA / Obamacare. Hyperbole, lies, and deception, all in the name of "More money for them."

Fun fact, everyone: California, and indeed the entire western seaboard, seceding from the United States is being pushed by Russia. Sure there's probably locals picking it up, but it was Russia. Russia wants to break up and balkanize the United States. So whenever you see this talking point, get real, real cautious.

Hey, the federal government already fought this fight. The feds ruled in your favor, that the states could not enforce immigration law. That they could not round up people and detain them for you, because the DOJ was concerned about civil rights.

Then there was the case that the feds lost, with the courts ruling that ICE detention requests were not enforceable and if followed would be illegal detention without charges.

I'm starting to think that Sessions has as much understanding of his situation as any of Trump's appointees. But that's no surprise since he called upon his vast legal knowledge as an attorney at law and a former state attorney general and declared that sexual assault is not against the law, despite it being listed as such in his own state.

2018-03-07 03:48:52 PM  
I keep hearing all this talk of liberals advocating for open borders, but only from right wing idiots.  I've never heard any liberal, progressive, or Democrat propose open borders.  I've never heard any liberal, progressive, or Democrat lobby to keep illegal immigrants who commit crimes in the US.  What I have heard are liberal, progressives, and Democrats advocating for people who were brought here as children to be allowed to stay here and become citizens and for that process to not be as expensive or as huge a pain in the ass as it is.  I've heard disgust at the notion that some immigrants are more worthy than others of citizenship.  I've heard our "president" refer to some of these immigrants' countries of origins as shiatholes.  I've heard liberals, progressives, and Democrats, including our previous president, call for bipartisan immigration reform.

All I ever hear from the right are racist dogwhistles, phony baloney sympathy for people brought here as children who've experienced no other way of life, and unreasonable demands, like building a dipshiat wall or ending "chain migration" (because really, who should be able to bring their family and loved ones over to the new country you're trying to build a home in).  It all ends up like the Obama cartoon where he moves further to right to try and compromise and the Republican dickhole backs up.  I don't believe there will ever be serious immigration reform in this country because the right will always scuttle it.  Dems agree to build a wall and Trump and the GOP will just want the wall taller with barbed wire on top.  There will always be another condition and the Republicans will continue to blame the Democrats for nothing getting done because they wouldn't compromise.

While I'm not a fan of this Admin, immigration is not a states' rights issue as it deals with international borders. In this case, the Feds are correct to assert their jurisdiction.
