Follow on from before.

It's not funny anymore. It' serious

I know this was on the tail end of the last thread but...

The Department of Homeland Security, in total violation of the Constitution, has announced it will ignore the judiciary

How? How can they do this?

Thanks for new thread.
Am avidly following if infrequently posting.

It is serious and difficult to understand.
Thanks all posters for all the updates.

GingerIvy Sun 29-Jan-17 17:07:25

I repeat: A FIVE YEAR OLD BOY was detained and kept from his mother at a US airport. In our name. And Team Trump wonders why the outcry?

And carrying: who will stick up for the Constitution?

How can you just ignore the judiciary?!?

Did you know the White House didn't mention Jewish people on Holocaust Memorial Day?!

www.edition.cnn.com/2017/01/28/politics/white-house-holocaust-memorial-day/index.html

Allegedly it's "because other people were killed too". Yes they were, but if you want to do that, you list ALL the victims, perhaps starting with the Jews as they made up about half of the 10-12 million killed in the Holocaust. Their lives don't matter more or most, but... Jaysus. You don't just get to Say Nothing.

Presumably Bannon just couldn't stomach it, nasty little neo-Nazi that he is.

I wonder how hard they will hit certain Mormon sects and the Hamis

Sorry Lweji - this made me smile as I imagine the authorities clamping down on hairy Scotsmen in kilts.

Sadly, it's not a laughing matter given they are witholding children from their parents. That's inhumane sad

Don't forget,

petition it may not be perfectly worded, but it's growing rapidly.

If you are used to other petitions, don't worry about spam from this one. You need to give your email address, but you don't get bombarded with 60 gazillion similar petitions!

Also there is the protest tomorrow, and one next Saturday. Yes we need to keep talking about this, but we also need to make sure our voice gets heard in the world. Many small voices add to make one giant shout.

x post Ginger!

Zebra Kushner's grandmother made a video of her experiences in a concentration camp. Apparently one of the things she said on the video was warning people they needed to be on guard, so it never happens again.

BigBadgers Sun 29-Jan-17 17:14:14

Well, ignoring the judicial system means he has well and truely given up any attachments to the rule of law. Surely this means the president is now openly and with full knowledge acting illegally. Wow!

Sen. Chuck Schumer: "If we get a few more Republicans, I think we might be able to pass legislation" to overturn immigration ban.

Please, please, MNers, please attend your local rallies and protests. Please make your voices heard to your elected representatives and heads of state. We are doing what we can, but this is bigger than just the good people of the US. We need international support.

Roussette Sun 29-Jan-17 17:19:26

Thanks for thread ami

Carrying on from previous thread, no way will Trump ban Saudi... he has a lot of business interests over there. He operates in 25 countries and Saudi is one of the top ones so I understand.

amispartacus Sun 29-Jan-17 17:20:57

Have you got a link to 'ignoring the judiciary'?

Is it the fact that DHS will carry on carrying out the executive orders even though a federal judge has objected?

MyCatLikesToSitInBoxes Sun 29-Jan-17 17:21:13

Nothing useful to add really. I'm just horrified at what is unfolding.

BigBadgers Sun 29-Jan-17 17:21:17

Here is a list of US senators and whether they have supported, opposed of remained silent into the immigration ban

Thank for the new thread. You're right that it's not funny anymore.

Does anyone have a link to the NSC info?
