    That is because Trump’s policy is charging illegal immigrants with a misdemeanor which triggers the law. Under Obama in most cases they were released until their court date. I also saw a new story that they are refusing to admit immigrants at the legal crossings which causes many to enter elsewhere. If they get caught they get charged with the misdemeanor and their kids get taken away. Basically they are making it impossible for immigrants to follow the law. Trump is a would be dictator who wants his minions to stand at attention when he is present. He is destroying our democracy bit by bit. We need to FIRE him.

    It is “Trump’s Policy” because it is. The law did not change only the policy to charge parents with a misdemeanor, then throw them in jail until their court date and take their kids away. That is all Trump.

    Clearly the law did not change, just the enforcement policy. Even if it was the law, does that justify the inhumane treatment of children? Would torture be ok as long as you passed a law to justify it? Is that the way you think children should be treated?

    He is a prime example of the holier than thou christians who wrap themselves in the bible while justifying the inhumane treatment of their fellow man. They go to church on Sunday to show how religious they are and then spend the rest of the week doing evil to others. Their hypocrisy is simply stunning.

    There is a remarkable similarity between how Hitler came to power and what is happening in the Trump administration. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler%27s_rise_to_power )The National Socialist German Workers’ Party was opposed to the democratic post-war governmentIt advanced extreme nationalism and Pan-Germanism (Make Germany great again)It promoted virulent anti-Semitism (anti-Muslim and Mexican vilification)Hitler was appointed as chancellor after a series of parliamentary elections and associate backroom intrigues. The passed the “Enabling Act” that assured Hitler could exercise dictatorial power without legal objection. (Trump can’t be indicted, be put on trial and can pardon himself) Hitler viciously suppressed anyone opposed to his regime. We are now ripping children from Mother’s at the border to “create a deterrent”. Thousands of very young children are put in cages deprived of contact to their families. What next, gas chambers? I beleive we are at a very dangerous point in our history and we simply cannot standby and let it happen.

    I think one of the reasons it is getting worse is due to our environment. The media is struggling to survive so all we see is the dramatic stories that feature death, destruction. and scandal. We have a sleeze ball as president who lies, abuses and insults people everyday. Our comedy entertainment lives of off color jokes and demeaning portrayal of people, and finally social media show the “wonderful life and good food” we are missing out on. It really is a very depressing time in our history. We don’t have much in the way of leadership and inspiration to motivate us.

    It’s getting to the point where they are a big expense and apparently can’t accomplish anything useful. I think we need to rethink how these people get elected.

    It’s simple. If he doesn’t do Halloween cakes, he doesn’t do them for anybody. If he does wedding cakes but refuses a particular customer because he doesn’t like their beliefs, that’s discrimination. It is the same as a choice not to do cakes for blacks or Muslims. If you are a public business, you treat customers equally. If you don’t want to make a cake with an anti-American theme, that applies to all customers and is not discrimination.

    The Statue of Liberty became the symbol of immigration during the second half of the 19th century, as over 9m immigrants came to the United States, with the statue often being the first thing they saw when arriving by boat.

    The actually did not do that. They overturned the case because they said the State did not properly handle the case. The decision says nothing about the baker’s right to discriminate against people. It was a very narrow decision on one narrow issue.
